Bourne Ultimatum Review

The Bourne Ultimatum

I saw the first two on dvd, and thought the first one was good; the second fair. This movie absolutely rocked! The fight and car chase scenes were meant to be seen on the big screen, not on home video, and the climax is ultimately satisfying.
I also like some of the comical scenes when you know Bourne has the people that are after him right where he wants them. It was a great movie (but not as great as Live Free or Die Hard!) and I recommend going to see it.

Greek Philosophy

I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world...

In his use of critical reasoning, by his unwavering commitment to truth, and through the vivid example of his own life, fifth-century Athenian Socrates set the standard for all subsequent Western philosophy.

The Voynich Manuscript...

Voynich manuscript...

In 1912, the antiquarian book dealer Wilfrid M. Voynich bought a number of mediaeval manuscripts from an undisclosed location in Europe. Among these was an illustrated manuscript codex of 234 pages, written in an unknown script.

Voynich took the MS to the United States and started a campaign to have it deciphered. Now, almost 100 years later, the Voynich manuscript still stands as probably the most elusive puzzle in the world of cryptography. Not a single word of this 'Most Mysterious Manuscript', written probably in the second half of the 15th Century, can be understood.
