... you must understand how learned books are written in case you ever want to write a learned book. First thing you do is get a thousand references, chosen at random. You then put them into the book, in the order you reach them ... And stick two or three lines of your own between each of them to act as mortar ... And you're all set.     ---Isaac Asimov.
