Let’s get metaphysical — a quick sequence of tweets
[ by Charles Cameron — From Elkus to Furnish, Tolkien to Feynman, — too tired to write, not tired enough to sleep — ripe for the twitter feed ]
The occasion of mirth:
I’m going to introduce an authorization to use Military Force against ISIL that is not limited by Time, Geography or Means.

Adam Elkus identifies the zone:

@GrahamBlog This seems to be in open defiance of the laws of physics, for starters.

Meanwhile, Tim Furnish was there ahead of time, defending Tolkien & attacking IS:

And now let’s get back to those laws of physics:
"If you don't like it, go somewhere else. To another universe, where the rules are simpler". – Richard Feynman on quantum mechanics

I’ve never read the books, so this comment is based on the movies; but it seems to me there is very great irony in DAESH appropriating the Rohirrim. The scene in the movie where the Rohirrim come charging down the hill to destroy the Urak-hai and relieve Helm’s Deep is Jan Sobieski and the Polish Hussars at Vienna.
We need another Sobieski.
