Was that what it was like in the old days Will? Everybody riding
out shooting, smoke all over the place, folks yelling, bullets
whistling by?

I guess so.

Shit - I thought they was gonna get us. I was even scared a little - 
just for a minute. Was you ever scared in them days?

I don't remember. I was drunk most of the time.

So why would anybody with anything between his ears but solid bone
want to hunt jaguars on foot, armed only with the zagaya, the
Indian spear? There are as many answers to that one as there are
reasons men hunt, fight, skydive, gamble or take up with redheaded
ladies -- Peter Hathaway Capstick

And if I show you my dark side, will you still hold me, tonight?
And if I open my heart to you, and show you my weak side,
what would you do? -- Pink Floyd, The Final Cut

It all makes perfect sense, expressed in dollars and cents, pounds
shillings and pence. -- Roger Waters, Amused to Death

In derelict sidings the poppies entwine with cattle trucks lying
in wait for the next time. -- Pink Floyd, The Final Cut

Who is the strongest, who is the best? Who holds the aces, the east
or the west? This is the crap our children are learning.

The difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that
tattooed people don't think non-tattooed people are fucking losers.

"Forgiveness is not something that we do for the person who wronged us,
but something we do for ourselves. When we forgive someone, we allow
ourselves to stop feeling the pain they have caused us."
--- Quoted by Pete Veliky on bisexu-l

While it is frequently said that people today are more "computer literate"
than ever before, I would contend that there are more computer users than
ever before, but that the average user is far from being computer 
"literate" in any form much beyond punching numbers into a spreadsheet
program or playing video games.

Well, my terminal's locked up, and I ain't got any Mail,
	And I can't recall the last time that my program didn't fail;
I've got stacks in my structs, I've got arrays in my queues,
	I've got the : Segmentation violation -- Core dumped blues.

If you think that it's nice that you get what you C,
	Then go : illogical statement with your whole family,
'Cause the Supreme Court ain't the only place with : Bus error views.
	I've got the : Segmentation violation -- Core dumped blues.

On a PDP-11, life should be a breeze,
	But with VAXen in the house even magnetic tapes would freeze.
Now you might think that unlike VAXen I'd know who I abuse,
	I've got the : Segmentation violation -- Core dumped blues.

I always had a sneaking suspicion that Dianetics was invented through
some drunken conversation Hubbard had with Robert Heinlein, to wit:

LRH: Fsck these organised religions - I could come with a far more
whacked-out way to control the plebs.
RAH: Want to bet?
LRH: Yeah sure - what'll you do if I pull it off?
RAH: I'll never write another piece of original fiction in my life - I'll
just throw together scenes and characters from my already published books,
and then release them as new novels.

It's clear that this conversation took place sometime around half-way
through writing "Stranger in a Strange Land"

They use different words for things in America.
For instance they say elevator and we say lift.
They say drapes and we say curtains.
They say president and we say brain damaged git.

Ho Ho Ho
To the bottle I go
Heal my heart and drown my woe.

Good health, Bilbo, wherever you are.
