Journal Journal: Old Backup

A few years back, a friend of mine and I concluded , after a long discussion, that Stonehenge actually is a gigantic backup. It's probably binary in form since it's stone - and then there is no stone - and then there's stone again. They might have abandoned the backup system since it obviously went into an infinite loop. We didn't have time to figure out the encryption scheme, because our burgers arrived.

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
