Quotes

In a recent email Harris said, "We brewed our first batch of beer, Procyon Pale Ale on October 2nd 2013. Since then we have done 120 brews producing 24 different beers here at Ecliptic. These beers will be recognized on our anniversary shirt."
"But if this thing were coming to Earth, we'd have a problem because with only a few months' warning, you couldn't really do anything about it."
"Statistics sounds like this dry, technical subject, but it draws on"
"All nations, before the just length of the solar year was known, reckoned months by the course of the moon, and years by the return of winter and summer, spring and autumn; and in making calendars for their festivals, they reckoned thirty days to a lunar month, and twelve lunar months to a year, taking the nearest round numbers, whence came the division of the ecliptic into 360 degrees." (Anderson, Robert. The Coming Prince. London: Hodder & Stroughton, 1894. ) For more - see http://www.truebiblecode.com/understanding90.html
