Quote du jour

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Robert A. Heinlein, via Past Peak

Well, our pResident can plan an invasion (albeit not well), give orders, act alone and pitch manure. Four out of 21--that makes him 19% of a human being.

To be fair, smirking and clearing brush were human activities left out by Heinlein.
