Nice thread resurrection, currently Bort trending

The only secrets are the secrets that keep themselves
George Bernard Shaw

The Journal of Alternative Facts TM

"It is critical that there is a credible academic source for the growing and important discipline of alternative facts. This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board. There is a real risk in the world today that people might be getting their information about science from actual scientists"

My version of an old quote.
Why do it today when you can do it tomorrow.
If you do it today and enjoy it you can do it again tomorrow. Smile

There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man’s lawful prey.

“Superstition proclaimed as truth, will always conquer truth, ridiculed as superstition.” – John Frederick Lange (a.k.a. John Norman), 1971

“The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.” – Joseph Conrad, 1911

“The gods of the Disc have never bothered much about judging the souls of the dead, and so people only go to hell if that’s where they believe, in their deepest heart, that they deserve to go. Which they won’t do if they don’t know about it. This explains why it is so important to shoot missionaries on sight.” – Terry Pratchett, 1990

“And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.” – King James Bible, Revelation 6.6, 1611

“We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same horizon” – Konrad Adenauer (derived from a quote of Greek philosophist Aesop)

… and most of all… nuu, this is a family oriented site, I cannot quote Charles Bukowski, here!! chuckles Well, let’s try this one, instead:

“Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” – Mark Twain

I was feeling down and out the other day when the good lord spoke to me. Smile and be happy, things could be worse. So I smiled and was happy and things did get worse. Silly

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.

Through Logic, You Will Find The Truth.

A dull knife is like a dull mind.
Hard to work with, and more likely to hurt you than help you.

Do not worry what other people might think.
I can guarantee you, most of them won’t.

Do it now. Talk about it later.

Why can’t we all “just get along”?

Un-mastered, f=ma is not your friend!

Obey Matthew 6:6.

Merry Mithras Day!
It’s the Reason for the Season!

For what is a knot, really, but a clever kink in a cord?

You can hold any opinion you want if you don’t test it too thoroughly.

If you’re not laughing by now, you’re taking this way too seriously.
I mean it.

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”

“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

“Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

My old man had a few he was know for handing out all the time. Not sure if he gets full credit for any of them. The one I heard more times than any was
“Hah, he couldn’t play dead in a western movie!” I’d give anything to hear him say it one more time.

Steve

May the force be with you.
