13. Where have all the flowers gone?
14. Who'll stop the rain?
15. Have you ever seen the rain?
16. Should I stay or should I go?
17. What's the frequency, Kenneth?
18. What's your name (little girl)?
19. Are you experienced?
20. Who will save you soul?
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!

There is an EXIT key. Sometimes it's also called an ESC key.

what is the sound of one hand clapping? What was your face before you were born? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there does it make a sound?
Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.
