On the patentability of human thoughts

Slashdot has this chain about how the Supreme Court is going to decide whether thoughts are patentable.

Somehow, it reminds me of this famous story of Jim Valvano and a basketball referee:

"I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em."
