You are an arsehole who is well suited to hanging out with humans. " --<br />SesshEMaru - Inu-Yasha by Rumiko Takahashi<br />"The pure enigmatic construct of the human mind has very little to do with absolute labels.<br />Labeling something Evil is just another way to come to grips with the horrors that are around<br />us. These moral fucksticks want to blame video games, movies and our modern world for<br />every case of bad chemicals and miseducation. I'd say human nature is vastly improving if<br />anything. The collective outrage and horror of the Colorado shooting is proof of our progress.<br />All you have to do is mildly study the Medieval era to be awakened at just how bad human<br />beings were, how commonplace the human disregard for life was. Do you think anyone terribly<br />minded that thousands of women has their ovaries torn from them while still living in the name<br />of holy persecution? Fuck no. Nobody cared because the value of human life was worth nothing.<br />Now it apparently has some value. Granted if it's American lives then the value might go up<br />a tad right? I don't see to many westerners losing sleep over the mass graves, brutal rapes and<br />genocide in Kosovo, do you? But I imagine that's more human nature. We tend to covet our<br />own. Or is it the old case as 'all Animals are equal, just some are more equal than others'.<br />Whatever. It's not because of evil that this shit is happening. This shit has always happened in<br />our history on this marble, it's more the case of reality poking it's head in the door and<br />saying 'remember me?' -- anon. " -- Ben<br />"Few people are successful unless a lot of other people want them to be." -Charles Brower<br />"Men are not disturbed by things, but by the views they take of them." -Epictetus The<br />Enchiridion<br />"We are the people our parents warned us about." -Jimmy Buffett<br />I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to<br />classify your species. I've realized that you are not actually mammals. Every mammal on this<br />planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment. But you<br />humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource<br />is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another<br />organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human<br />beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague. --Agent Smith, Matrix<br />"People only see what they are prepared to see." -Ralph Waldo Emerson<br />"The more I come to understand humans as induviduals, the less I understand them as a<br />race." -- Lycorne<br />"I'm surrounded by idiots!" -Scar from The Lion King<br />"Man is never closer to God then when he bends down to touch an animal in need" --Roary<br />Kennedy Smith<br />"To 'err' is human; to blame the next guy even more so." -Anonymous<br />"There is no justice among men." --Czar Nicholas II (1868-1918)<br />"It has been said that man is a rational animal.

I just believe in one fewer<br />god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other<br />possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."<br />-- Stephen Roberts<br />I'm currently in a mode of thinking where telling the gods to go<br />screw themselves sounds like one of my better options. - Lycorne,<br />04.01.2001<br />"...I'm not one of those who think Bill Gates is the devil. I simply<br />suspect that if Microsoft ever met up with the devil, it wouldn't need<br />an interpreter." -- Nick Petreley<br />Greek mythology says that whom the gods would destroy, they first make<br />mad. I'd never been sure whether 'mad' meant crazy or angry. Either<br />way, the gods were working on me pretty good right now. - Iniach<br />"The little pink dojo behind the chevron in HG is a cult.

Or, more to the point, what mature<br />adult needs deities like that in his or her life?" - Jim DeKorne<br />"Jesus H. frog on a pogo stick!" -Beth, Bedlam's Bard<br />"The most preposterous notion that homo sapiens has ever dreamed up<br />is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the<br />Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be<br />swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if he does not receive<br />this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to<br />bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least<br />productive industry in all history." - Eleri -- Zelgadis on the<br />Mailing List<br />Smashing Pumpkins Theorem 1:<br />emptiness is loneliness<br />and loneliness is cleanliness<br />and cleanliness is godliness<br />and god is empty<br />just like me<br />Smashing Pumpkins Corollary 1:<br />Billy Corgan is God.<br />-- Smashing Pumpkins Fan Corrollary<br />Keaton always said "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of Him."<br />Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser<br />Soze. - Roger Kint, The Usual Suspects<br />"Religion is like the leaning tower of pisa, it defies the laws of<br />physics and should have crumbled years ago" - Emily Simmons<br />"The gods forgot they made me, so I forgot them too." - David Bowie,<br />"Seven"<br />Always back up data.
