"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Always saw that one in the Sits Vac in the papers, back in the day. I know Commis Chef means 'dogsbody with ambition', but I always imagined myself as some sort ofZampolit, some sort of Soviet Political Officer in chef's whites with a knife, guarding the future of the revolution whilst making soup and kneading bread dough...
