Human knowledge: its scope and limits

The title of this post is the title of an important book by Bertrand Russell. I wonder what he would have made of my ISP's front page and the list of the most searched items on their site at the moment.

I bet he'd have had to revise a few chapters.

But I'm quite chuffed with myself. Generally I have to research half the entries, but tonight it's only one. Kanye West: apparently he's a rapper. Not, for my English folkie readers, the kind that dances with bendy swords in Northern pubs, but the kind that makes lots of money and gets onto MTV.

A Kanye West quote for y'all: “I don't know what's better, gettin laid or gettin paid.”

Well, quite.
