Platitude cookies

Teach oneself by exploring the old

and deducing the new

That’s what my fortune cookie said. Very nice. Good thematic match for the blog.

Unfortunately (heh), it’s not a fortune. It’s a platitude or an aphorism or some such device. “Someone is going to drop a piano on your head next Tuesday” – now that’s a fortune. These cookies are of disappointingly little predictive value.
