I can't get over that truck full of breast implants. Did they steal 'em for resale, or did they just want to dive into the truck and go Bulblblblblbl! -Roy Blunt Jr. referring to the theft in Brazil, of a truck full of breast implants - 7/16/05 http://www.npr.org/programs/waitwait/archrndwn/2005/jul/050716.waitwait.html I have no hair left, and they're all grey! - Rich Bubka, 7/2005 For Bush to get rid of Karl Rove would be like Charlie McCarthy firing Edgar Bergen. - blogger Marshall Wittman, as heard on NPR. 7/16/05 I robusted it up. - Rich Bubka, 7/2005 What possible reason could a government sponsored educational system have for nurturing political critical thinking? - Scott, per henry The Democrats' mistake was in thinking that a disastrous war, national bankruptcy, erosion of liberties, corporate takeover of government, environmental destruction, squandering our economic and moral leadership in the world, and systematic Administration lying would be of concern to the electorate. The Republicans correctly saw that the chief concern of the electorate was to keep gay couples from having an abortion. - Nick Head, per henry Now go read the note above again... To be repetitively redundant, it was an erroneous error. - Greg, 5/05 Have you noticed how much energy the White House is putting into selling it's new mandatory IRA ... um ... I mean ... Social Security reform? Have you noticed how much time the media has spent covering it? Have you noticed how little time is left over to cover things like the fact that all of our Civil Liberties are getting repealed, our environment is getting trashed, and our judicial system is getting stacked? That Rove guy is pretty darned good, isn't he! - me, *sigh* Right now, as you read this, 17 Million people are having SEX!!! And look at you - you're on the computer!!!! - from one geek to another... ;) - being emailed around... It is difficult to imagine that only Libertarians can see that if we didn't have our insane war on drugs, illicit drug dealing would not be profitable. We don't see shoot outs over beer deals gone bad, but we did when alcohol was illegal! We don't see turf wars between gangs who want to sell cigarettes to kids. - George Smith, DE Libertarian Newsletter, 3/2005, http://de.lp.org That's right, ..., in a terrible twist of irony, the machine that caught fire was my firewall machine. - henry, 2/11/05 They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and we're not using it anymore. - Per Chris, 2/2005 When she was at our house last weekend, she spent some time coloring on the computer using Microsoft Draw. I went upstairs to find her systematically erasing the entire page using a tiny little eraser shape, so that she could have a clean sheet. I told her we could just close that page and open a new one that would be all white. She told me it was okay, she didn't want to waste. I told her that it wasn't real paper, so she wouldn't be wasting anything. Without a pause in her erasing, she replied that she didn't want to waste any fun. - Ellen, about her (and my) niece, Cecily, 1/2005 They're not fast, and they're not slow - they're half-fast. - Greg, 1/27/05 My son was convicted the day President Bush went on TV and said that seven bad apples disgraced the country. In my opinion Donald Rumsfeld and President Bush have disgraced this country." - US Army specialist Charles Graner's mother, after he was sentenced to 10 years for abusing prisoners at the Abu Ghraib Prison - 1/15/2005 I wonder if Mr. Bush could explain, in actual monitary terms, exactly HOW privatization would "save Social Security." I doubt he's ever even thought about it! - me, 1/16/2005 (yes, the 'Mr.' is intentional!) I wish they'd just get the Rapture over with and leave the earth to the rest of us! - a Unitarian Universalist, worried about the environment - 1/2005 When in doubt, do the kindest thing possible. - Jean Peters Is there a book called "Reading for Dummies?" - Stephen Womer, 1/2005 Policy without funding is better known as rhetoric. - heard on Radio Times, on WHYY, 12/2004 Tuning a Saxophone is like milking a duck! - a french horn player, 12/2004 I'd like to point out how perfect the Bush/Cheney logo really is. First, notice that the stars are in straight lines. The last time the stars were in straight lines it was the decade when Jim Crow laws were still considered constitutional. Also, there are only 20 stars and seven stripes. This makes me think that they're really only planning to representt a portion of the country... hmmmm. - me, who is terrified that the Bush dynesty will continue... 10/04 - yes, before election day.... *sigh* Unless you have considerable experience driving a taxi in Rome during rush hour after somebody has dumped LSD into the city's water supply, do not try to drive in Boston. - Henry Farkas - http://www.henryfarkas.com/weblog/ We are the unwilling Lead by the unqualified Doing the unnecessary For the ungrateful - engraved on the Zippo lighter of a Vietnam soldier - per NPR's Weekend Edition, sometime in July, 2004 In what is being hailed as a brilliant decision, AT&T wireless service, co-branded with Sprint, will compete with AT&T Wireless, which is NOT part of AT&T. It is an entirely seperate company that was spun off from AT&T Corporate when those wizards decided that AT&T didn't need to be in the wireless phone business! - a very recent ex-employee of AT&T My government's got a war on drugs. But get this: The two most widely abused and addictive and destructive of all substances are both perfectly legal. [...] One, of course, is ethyl alcohol. And President George W. Bush, no less, and by his own admission, was smashed or tiddley-poo or four sheets to the wind a good deal of the time [... The other is] the most abused and addictive and destructive drugs of all: fossil fuels. We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we're hooked on. - Kurt Vonnegut, May 10, 2004, in 'In These Times' http://www.inthesetimes.com/site/main/print/cold_turkey/ When everything that matters can be bought and sold, when commitments can be broken because they are no longer to our advantage, when shopping becomes salvation and advertising slogans become our litany, when our worth is measured by how much we earn and spend, then the market is destroying the very virtues on which in the long run it depends. - United Kingdom's Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, per John Bogle, http://www.vanguard.com/bogle_site/sp20030224.html I won't retire, but I might retread. - Neil Young There is a new product available in the stores called: Metamucil Matzo. The box has the logo: "LET MY PEOPLE GO!" - Floating in CyberSpace I feel like I'm trying to build a mathmatical model of a jelly roll, from the inside out. - John Callahan, on a shell script he's writing President Bush likes to tell the rest of the world, 'If you are not with us, you are against us,' but he fails to recognize that the world is sending the same message to us. - Russel Peterson, "Partiots, Stand Up!" http://www.governorpeterson.org Like it or not, in a span of less than three years, America has gone from being perceived as friend and partner to a reputation as the enemy, scrooge and loner. The transformation is disturbing and foreboding. - Russel Peterson, http://www.governorpeterson.org You can't fit 10 pounds into a five pound sack, whether it's candy or manure. - Rob Ostertag Two banks had their ATM machines hit by a worm. Slowed, then shut, them down, although no cash was diverted. The maker of the machines? Diebold, the same manufacturer as those electronic voting machines demonstrated to have security flaws, that leave no paper trail of the actual votes, and whose CEO has vowed to "help Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year". The O/S on the ATMs? Windows XP. You'd think I'd be kidding, but I'm not. Major banks. Lots of cash. In ATMs. Running Windows XP. On Diebold machines. It simply can *not* be this bad. - Henry, Dec 10, 2003 (I don't know, sometimes I think it might....) If honesty were suddenly introduced into American life, the whole system would collapse! - George Carlin As we know, There are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know There are known unknowns. That is to say We know there are some things We do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, The ones we don't know we don't know. - Donald Rumsfeld At least I've stopped (temporarily) answering the phone (when I know who's calling) with "AT&T Labs. This is Henry, I hate Microsoft, can I help you?" - henry I've tried local stores (not banks): KMart, WalMart, Lowe's and Home Depot, but they'd all rather give to the Little League than their local symphony. - board member of Newark Symphony Orchestra http://www.newarksymphony.org I always thought that VI was Notepad, only hard. - teacher of the XML class I took last week. Memorial gifts may be made to any organization that seeks the removal of President George Bush from office. -last line of Gertrude M. Jones' obituary, 10/2/2003 The Times-Picayune, New Orleans Learning to say (and mean) things like "I'm sorry" and "I was wrong" and "yes we should, and will, share fairly" would do so much good for our leaders of all types. I wonder that such allegedly intelligent people did not ever learn these simple concepts. - henry 8/7/03 Hokey Pokey (as written by W. Shakespeare): O proud left foot, that ventures quick within Then soon upon a backward journey lithe. Anon, once more the gesture, then begin: Command sinistral pedestal to writhe. Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke, mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl. To spin! A wilde release from Heavens yoke. Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl. The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about. - Jeff Brechlin - winner of a Washington Post Style contest To know recursion, you must first know recursion. - henry 8/7/03 I feel strongly that the visual arts are of vast importance. Of course, I could be prejudiced. I am a visual art. - Kermit the Frog
Just in case you're wondering, I've never tried, (nor have any real desire to try,) any currently politically incorrect (a.k.a. illegal) drugs. If this wasn't enough to make you never speak to me again..... Over ten years of old quotes can be found at my home page:
