Quote of the Day:



"sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology." 
- Vodouisant on the Old Style Conjure Network


Very witty dude!
*applause*


Update: Argent informs, that this clever twist on the famous Arthur C. Clark comment - is in fact attributable to Larry Niven. Quote Nazism aside, it's still a good one!

  1. Being a quote nazi:

    Larry Niven, in discussing fantasy, wrote that "any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology". This is reference to sci fi author Arthur c clarke who stated :

    "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

    Niven wrote Ringworld, a fairly good story about a utopian Massive ring orbiting a sun where the humanoids had degenerated and did not understand their technology anymore, and had only appropriated the tech from their alien carers who were gone.

    quote nazism over :D :D

  3. @Argent: sure, I got the Arthur C. Clarke reference - that's what makes it funny! Don't know about the other author - funny whoever said it.
