    We don't have to save the world. The world is big enough to look after itself. What we have to be concerned about is whether or not the world we live in will be capable of sustaining us in it.

    There is a theory which states that if anybody ever discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    - Douglas Adams

    The only legitimate use of a computer is to play games. - Eugene Jarvis

    Saying Java is good because it works on all platforms is like saying anal sex is good because it works on all genders (Anon)

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands. (Douglas Adams - Dirk Gentley's Holistic Detective Agency)

    At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child - miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill disciplined, despotic, and useless. Liberalism is the philosophy of sniveling brats. -- P.J. O'Rourke
