Journal: Regarding my signature for pedantic latin buffs

Journal by lgordon

From the Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce

CARTESIAN, adj.
Relating to Descartes, a famous philosopher, author of the celebrated dictum, Cogito ergo sum -- whereby he was pleased to suppose he demonstrated the reality of human existence. The dictum might be improved, however, thus: Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum -- "I think that I think, therefore I think that I am;" as close an approach to certainty as any philosopher has yet made.

Once again, an inside joke, but known to be incorrect in latin form.
