Quote of the Day

June 17, 2015
A Greek paradox: many elderly are broke despite costly pensions

Civil servants have no pencils to write with...

Want another Greek paradox? Without pencils, how do the civil servants record the results of their one working computer?

A Greek shipwreck holds the remains of an intricate bronze machine that turns out to be the world's first computer.

Greek shipwreck indeed. It's not all bad though. Their computer only crashes when the ship does. It's also not filled with the hackable personal information of every citizen. So hey, kudos to Greece for thinking long-term.

Pencil and papyrus technology, baby. That's what I'm talking about.

I hope you realize that I'm joking. Mostly.
