Looks good to me:

In computer science, about the only thing we can prove is that traveling
salesmen can't find their way from one place to another effeciently, and
that unix hackers can't really decode 40-bit keys by harnessing all the
computers in the lab. And the hackers do it anyway, and the salesmen still
make their rounds.
