Which of you will think that the other is beneath his consideration?

And Kidd does not like airy-fairy ivory-tower types. He liked Laithwaite because he never made any proper measurements or theoretical calculations, and called physicists, “abominable no-men” Bertrand Russell would have appreciated the above site: his method of dealing with loonies was to keep them talking to each other, so that they left sensible people alone. Of course, that was before nutters started receiving undeserved awards.
