Your tautology for the day--

There's a Reader's Digest Book Fair in the cafeteria downstairs. It's same old same old, bibles and cookbooks and kiddy books. Nothing special.

There's a four-DVD set of wild animal videos--predator/prey, hunter/hunted stuff. S'okay, I've got two of those sets, they're nice enough.

What stopped me was the caption at the bottom:

Either the heroes live...Or they die!



The same could be said of advertising account executives, hairdressers, rotifers, and my neighbor's bougenvillas. It might not apply to certain single-cell organisms, but that's dodgy.

Not necessarily a tautology - they could, potentially, both live *and* die. Obviously you've never heard of the Schrodinger's Hero experiment.

You are, sir, wrong on that one. These animals have been recorded. Therefore, observed. But I respect that hairdressers may be alive or dead, and that advertising account executives may have no life.
