Isn't this what graduate students are for?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.
- Isaac Asimov

Nice. I assume we get to name them once we've classified them, and they will then belong to us. I'd really like to be a Galactic Emperor, even if I were an absentee landlord.

Then you will like my evil pick for this weeks summary to be.

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

If this is how it works.

I am in!



When one plans to rule the universe one must first start with a small out of the way galaxy with little resistance just to get ones feet wet as it were.


What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. - Bertrand Russell

I scored 14 out of 15 at the test, so I guess I'm on.

The servers are heavily loaded right now, so I didn't do more than 10 galaxies. Two of them mergers.
