    Michael Shermer
    The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments.
    They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, he said. They're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and... and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth.

    while not entirely tech-related i'd be remiss if i didn't mention something that would none the less be appealing to this community... has anyone else had the pleasure of checking out Shermer's book Why People Believe Weird Things? it covers matters of pseudoscience and other fallacies and reinforces a theme revered by many of us... that failing to think for oneself is often the greatest pitfall that people encounter in their lives.

    careful inspection, impartial analysis, and dissatisfaction with cursory explanations that don't scratch the surface tend to be things we value... this book explains some of the reasons why people ignore these guidelines.

    i have an audiobook version of this, actually, if anyone is interested in it but can't find free time outside of your daily drive to and from work.
    "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."
