I love people who list their region as "Orange County." Do you know how
many Orange Counties there are?

I don't. But I do know there's one in New Jersey, and one in California, at
the very least. You can't get much farther apart than that in this country
without taking a swim.

Damn parochial Americans.

Adaptability... is the 'specialization' of man. He cannot run as fast as a
cheetah, but he can run. He cannot swim as well as an otter, but he can swim.
His eyes are not so sharp as a hawk's nor can he store food in his cheeks. So
he must train his eyes and create instruments from bits and pieces of tortured
earth; not only to let him see, but to outrun the cat and to outswim the otter
as well. He can walk across an arctic waste, swim a tropical river, climb a
tree and, at the end of his journey, build a nice hotel. There he will clean
up and then boast of his accomplishments over dinner with his friends. -David
Brin, February 1980 ("Sundiver")
