There is no gratitude - only irritation if, for any reason, the newly invented conveniences break down. Men don't spend their time thanking God for cars; they only curse when the carburettor is choked.

Anyone who's ever had to do technical support for consumers will understand that one...

Discordian thought eh?

"In some way a thing is, in some way a thing is not, in some way a thing is indescribable, in some way a thing is and is indescribable, in some way a thing is not and is indescribable, and in some way a thing is, is not, and is indescribable." - From The Illuminatus Trillogy

However also a central tennant of Jainism in eastern philosophy, and if you can unravel what it means, its got a very cute meaning.

"'And you better be prepared for the jump into hyperspace. It's unpleasently like being drunk' - 'Well, what's so unpleasent about being drunk?' - 'You ask a glass of water!'" - Hitchhikers Guide (Ah what a terrific series of writings!)

A guy in my art class once said;
"Speak my mind? I'd hate myself if I did that!"

I just thought it was the funniest thing ever.

And because my brother is a "Techno Junkie" and plays Warcraft (3);

Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a trick, this is a stunt. The difference between a stunt and a trick is that a trick is something that tricks or fools the audience, a stunt is something that only an idiot would do -Ivan, Ash Circle, 10/04/03

"...I felt sad, because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can't ever be fixed, and this is something that nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older, as you see people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it's already happened."

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

"Are you a philosopher? Where's your sponge?" - Terry Pratchett, Small Gods

"Greebo turned slowly, a faint, lazy smile on his scarred face. As a human, his nose was broken and a black patch covered his bad eye. But the other one glittered like the sins of angels, and his smile was the downfall of saints. Female ones, anyway." - Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

"Other theories about the ultimate start involve gods creating the universe out of the ribs, entrails and testicles of their father. There are quite a lot of these. They are interesting, not for what they tell you about cosmology, but for what they say about people. Hey, kids, which part do you think they made your town out of?" - Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies

"A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read." - Terry Pratchett, Guards, Guards!

The mark of a truly beautiful woman is that from one angle she looks so stunningly lovely you feel you will die if you cannot have her; yet, from another, she is ugly, repulsive, you are afraid of her. Picasso

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? So that it will make us happy? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kinds of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us." - Franz Kafka

And what are the rules? Ask me and I will strike you because you are not looking; I will have decapitated you without your knowing. One can try to formulate obscure theories to avoid playing the game or one can play the game to win. Daniel Kolak, Wittgensteins Tractatus: Translators Preface
