"Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life".
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus (121 – 180 CE)
When I was a youngster my parents bought me a pair of braces to hold up my new trousers. Of course these were 'Trousers to grow into' and without such support I would have been running around bare arsed. The braces were blue and had pictures of planets and rockets and, in the box, was a genuine ticket to the Moon.
I know, because it said so.
