one of Spock's most eminently quotable phrases is "Unknown, Captain."
It puts him ahead of "scientists" who are wedded to their biases and ignorance.
I worked with another video tech who would say the wackiest things to students and professors, instead of "I don't know, I can research that for you." One day he walked in while I was showing Turbo Incabulator
to a co-worker. Pinhead stood there nodding his head, as though the techno-babble made sense to him. And here's the punchline: I heard pinhead using some of the nonsense terminology to a student later on. And he was absolutely serious.
I have great respect for someone who can say, "I don't know."
