    If a man is not a liberal when he is young, he does not have a heart.
    If he is not a conservative when he is old, he doesn't have a brain.
    Winston Churchill (not a direct quote, just the jist of it)

    Good quote, but Mother Teresa didn't have the SKMB to fall back on

    Thanks, Spidey. Not to sound mushy, but love is such a powerful force.

    Mother Teresa was a warrior spirit on the front line.

    I hope I didn't bust this quote out already. But it is soooo one of my favorites...

    "Originally, all martial art belts were only white. There was no color belt reward system for martial arts. That was invented for when the arts were brought to america, so we could see a students progression.

    So, when you saw a guy with a grungy dark nasty belt that was falling apart, you understood immediately he was one you did not want to anger."

    Hehe... The other day a friend of mine said the following. The woman the quote was about, once slipped her tongue and explained how because an ex boyfriend owed her money, she had called the police and got him arrested. She said, "Oh, I had a baby in the car, and I just had to swerve to avoid him, help!" to the police, or something like that.

    So at one point this friend states to me,

    "I pulled a Joe on her at some point last night. I don't even know how we got to this in the conversation, but I let it out, just how far out of my way I would go, if someone blatently used police in an attempt to destroy my life."

    Myself, I'm like a living 'Tales From the Crypt' episode when it comes to vindication. If something enters my world, and dangerously upsets or seriously inconviences my life, when I honestly didn't earn it... *sigh* Let's just say, I pray we'll never need to set foot on that path.

    Although, driving drunk and endangering the lives of everyone else out there, is just about as disgusting as playing the system to scar someones life to begin with.

    If you ask for it, don't be suprised when you get it. -- Me

    Let me put it this way...

    Stephen King doesn't need to write about Seth MacFarlane.

    "The army of samuari, who had completely mastered the art of fighting with a long katana, was pitted up against another army. This other army, fought with two swords, one in each hand.

    And the outcome? The samuari all died. They had all of their arms cut off laying on the battlefield. The ones with a sword in both hands, were unscathed..."


    A story of an ancient battle. I don't remember which groups were which, I only remember the story of the battle, so I didn't put their country of origin names in. I feel horrible getting things like that wrong.

    But yeah, they all lost their arms, even though before that, they were the dominant warriors of the world.
