"What is the difference between a realist and a dreamer? The realist thinks that someday a UFO will come down and hover over the UN building, and that the aliens will come out of the UFO and offer to share their technology and solve all our world's problems. The dreamer thinks maybe we can get our act together and do it ourselves."

-- Russian joke cited in William Hartmann's, A Traveler's Guide to Mars.
