Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians,

It may be a HOLIDAY for some, but for good God-fearing Puritans, it's a HOLYDAY. Spend it in church! Or at least spend the day in close proximity to a church key...

CAN one do "nothing?" Isn't it a productive, necessary part of the philosopher's life to sit and think, or sit and let the thoughts one just had sink in? Indeed, aren't philosophers the MOST HARD WORKING individuals because they're at their job in every waking moment, no matter what else they're doing?
