Kind of an interesting concept: An accurate belief. Some things that are believed in may be accurate I suppose, but if they are accurate, is there a question of belief? Accuracy is a measure of real vs measured, where-as belief is an acceptance of some idea which may or may not be accurate. Frankly, I try to keep the two separate when possible. Not always possible though.

I do believe that the time is right for a beer. Is that an accurate belief? Works for me... :-)

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...otherwise, the problem is not a problem, it is a facct
