The most important fact about spaceship earth:  an instruction book didn’t come with it.”   —   Buckminster Fuller

(That’s still NO excuse for FFF-ing it up the way we have.  There have been CREDITABLE warnings about MAN MADE GLOBAL WARMING at least since the 1970s, but did the “conservatives” heed those warnings?  No!  They sat on their hands and did nothing, and pushed for more and more fossil fuel burning, as they STILL do today.  Oh, yeah.  It’s all a “liberal conspiracy”, or “it’s cyclical”, or – maybe the best STUPID one – “it’s sunspots”!  And, a good number of you A-Holes are STILL in denial.  Bucky is lucky.  He’s long dead, and doesn’t have to watch the suicide of human “civilization”.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I just invent, then wait until man comes around to needing what I have invented.”   —   Buckminster Fuller

(I guess this means that ol’ Bucky considered himself more than a mere man.  A lot of geniuses are pretty arrogant, I guess.  Leonardo da Vinci seemed more humble than this though.  I guess Buckminster was just fuller of himself!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The most important fact about spaceship earth:  an instruction book didn’t come with it.”   — Buckminster Fuller

(But, if it had there would be a humongous chapter on CONSERVATION, with a large sub-chapter on CAPACITIES.  It’s been said that if the world were to see some kind of nuclear holocaust, the one thing that would likely survive would be the cockroaches.  Which is actually kind of poetic, when you think about it.  The only animal that rivals the cockroach, in terms of proliferation, is the human.  If I were allowed to edit the Bible – and any other religious text – the first phrase I would remove would be:  Be fruitful and multiply.  That one phrase alone has done more damage than any other throughout human history.)   — YUR
