quote of the day...

"It may happen that small differences in the initial conditions produce very great ones in the final phenomena. A small error in the former will produce an enormous error in the latter. Prediction becomes impossible..."

--Jules Henri Poincare, Science and Method

(found in Stormchasers: The Hurricane Hunters and Their Fateful Flight into Hurricane Janet. It's a good book, and if you're fascinated with the crazy folks who go fly into hurricanes in the name of science, it comes highly recommended.)
