        "I'm helping!"

        Small anecdote from my father:

        In the town he lived in as a young man stood an old church. Some day the remains of plague victims from hundreds of years ago were found buried in a mass grave next to it. Digging started around the church to unearth all the bones and he or one of his friends went there and found a human skull which he took with him. They had a basement location for partying in one of their homes and for many years the skull sat there on the bar with a candle stuck on top as a decorative item until someone drunkenly bumped against it and it shattered on the floor.

Perhaps, looking at these experiments on his possible remains, he would be skeptical of any conclusions, telling us to take them "with a grain of salt" and reminding us that "the only certainty is that nothing is certain." Or perhaps he would encourage scientists to forge on, repeating what, according to his nephew, he said when his helmsman suggested they return to port as scalding ash and fiery stones began raining on the fleet headed for Vesuvius. His response was: "Fortune favors the bold.

            "Ceterum censeo Carthaginem delendam esse", or "Ceterum autem censeo Carthaginem delendam esse" (English: "Furthermore, (moreover) I consider that Carthage must be destroyed"),
            He would rise in the senate and after every interjection finish with.. I consider that Carthage must be destroyed.
