So, I've managed to find some DVD+R media at $35 for a spindle of 25 discs. Phillips is the brand, which is reasonable enough for my tastes. I've also found spindles of 100 DVD-R discs for under $100 but it was a brand-x name, and I've learned from many lost CDs not to trust BrandX overly much. Anyone out there managed to hunt down DVD media for less than $35/25discs? +R vs. -R doesn't matter much as the burner I'll be using handles both. It's only a 4x burner, though, so it'd be nice if the discs were 4x or less (I'm patient, I can wait for a 2x or 1x burn).
Secondly, we've all seen the phrase "I think, therefore I am" tossed around. On the way home, I got to wondering:
Have you actually read the discourse it is from (be honest)?
Yeah, I've read Descartes.
I just heard it from my friend.
Have you ever argued it (for or against)?
Spent two weeks on it in my intro to philosophy class, in fact!
I never actually felt strongly enough about it one way or the other.
What percentage of people do you think have read it (the source, not the quote)?
90 or more (yeah, I'm an optimist)
60-75 (I try to think of myself as a realist -- I hope)
30-50 (some may say I'm a pessimist, I think I'm a realist)
1-25 (yeah, I'm a pessimist)
less than 1 (I'm a smartass who doesn't count reading translations as actually reading it)
