OK, how about a quote competition. After the post disappears, someone can fish it out and we all vote on the best one. No limit to entries. They can be from anywhere, but if someone famous said it put their name under it, make your own up if you want.

Death is life's way of telling you you've been fired.

Nicole, remind me to show you The Quote Book someday...
Think of all the weird little things people who are cursed strongly enough to end up talking to me might say... now imagine I've written the best of these in a little Word Document for the past three years and published them on the internet...

Examples:


"I'm not molesting you! I'm checking for ticks."
~
"There are planets out there for us somewhere."
~
"Hanson and the Spice Girls on the same CD? This is a plea to God to smite our society."
~
"I'm going to hurt myself until you get me something to drink."
"Don't hurt yourself."
"But I'm thirsty!"
~
"We must be lost -- we've passed the point of no
return three times in the last hour."


~shaking head~ and I LIKE these people...

The multiplication of a man's selfishness is the division of a man's soul.

Promises form due to a lack of trust.

Fractal you are awesome, Magus is one of the best video game characters ever. I also like Final Fantasy VI (I'm guessing it's that Sabin).

"Extinquished by night, I turn on the light
Wear its darkness with an empty smile" - Pink Floyd

"Unlike grownups, children have little need to deceive themselves." - Goethe


Abrahm Simons

"And every state of mind, left to itself, every shutting up of the creature within the dungeon of its own mind - is, in the end, Hell" - C.S. Lewis

Abe - considering that a total of what, four words...? are the same, then I think I can credit the author of the one I posted (whomever that may be) as having come up with an honestly original quote!
