For those of you who are not students of philosophy, “Cartesian” refers to the philosophy of Rene Descartes, who famously kicked off Rationalism as a system of thought with the dictum, “I think, therefore I am.”

Rene Descartes went into his favorite bar and the bar tender asked, “would you like your usual drink, Monsieur Descartes? ” Descartes replied “I think not” and promptly disappeared.

Old joke, that. Back in the late 80s, my .sig on my email transmissions read as follows:
Cogito, ergo spud.
I think, therefore I yam.
…and I believe I stole it from another USENET post.
