    People think they understand their own mortality, even when that understanding has just changed.

    Margaret Anne Lake, born July 27, 1942, is a famous practitioner of sun sign astrology (the Western kind we all know and love), which traditionally has assigned a zodiac sign to a person based on the constellation in which the Sun is (most closely) placed at the time of that person's birth. But in which constellation (as defined by the International Astronomical Union) was the Sun placed when Margaret was born?
    Cancer

    But could you post a link or a quick explanation? (It might be seen as "guessable")

    Which philosopher can be credited with the following paraphrased quote?

    I am quite sure of the fact that more people die as a result of virtuous foolishness than outright evil.
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer:
    Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed – in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical – and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for when dealing with a stupid person than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.

    Yours is probably right then. I just did quick geometry and guessed that I had the fastest route. I could have missed something in that assumption of the route I took.

    Gotta go for now. Thanks for the quiz! I will check back tomorrow and see if there is anything left.
