Too Much Information

It’s like getting a contact high when everyone around you is smoking dope but you don’t do that–you’re still sharing a bit of the blessing.

(Of certain far-fetched theories) This is the law of regression of causation to the point of least knowledge.

(Of Hegelianism) It was an intoxicating bologna sandwich.
