I was trying find out if "car" had any etymological connection to
"carriage", when I pulled up the following:

"Footnotes Without a Text"

It reads sort of like FoRK might if:
a) it were composed of folk from C.P. Snow's *other* culture, and
b) it were available in digest format.

Unfortunately, it's not half as clever as I thought, as they turn out in
fact to be footnotes[1] to an actual text. (third party annotations? a
postmodern ?)
Fortunately, it lead me to the infamous (in both cultures) "Transgressing
the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity"
[2]; this work may come in handy if we still have any thesis-procrastinators
in our midst [3].


[1] does anyone here know of any actual footnote only works? One of my
favorite pieces was an errata-only, which consisted of: "Errata (p.i) should
be replaced by Erratum".
[3] why would you have read this far if you weren't?
