Notes from Planet X: pt. 5

"Words include more than they leave out. Words never say all there is to say about anything."

-- Bill Nye as quoted by Neil deGrasse Tyson in "The Pluto Files," pg. 106.

Also interesting is Bill Nye's comment on the misapplication of trans- for ultra- in astronomical nomenclature on pp. 106-7. Brought to mind Marines v. Rome for some reason.
