thothmes: Entity Carter stares.  She is in B & W, her eyes are bright blue.  Legend:  Be afraid!  Be Very ;afraid! (Be Afraid! (Carter))
In Colorado Springs two thirds of workers in the science field are women, yet the median income for women in science fields is a mere 42% of men's. No wonder Sam arrived for that briefing in Children of the Gods with a bit of a chip on her shoulder. Someone in the elevator on her trip down had let slip how much Dr. Lee was making.

It seems likely, given how late in the series it was that General Hammond threatened to fire Felger because he had such a woeful track record, at least it was not his salary that was setting her off. If Jack knew, he'd be very, very grateful. He likes his to be not only on the outside, but more importantly, still there!

A Few Words From The Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.
-The Maxims of Ptahotep

In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.
- an Ancient Egyptian Love Song

But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.
-Love Songs of the New Kingdom, Song #2

To Know the Dark

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.
-Wendell Berry

Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.
-Robert Burns

Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui

Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.
-Ch'ien Ch'i

Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.

Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.
-Nathalia Crane

I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.
-Samuel Coleridge
