I don't expect anyone to get this without being a HUGE comic book fan.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Judge it by the blurb.

"If you're ever gonna take a dump in your hands, you need to have big hands and make sure they're cupped tightly"


Words of wisdom from Bernard the local (friendly) tramp, on Tues 10th April 2007 outside Murray's newsagents when he saw I was buying toilet paper.


Thanks Bernie man, your violent drunken wreckless abandon always enlivens our sleepy street but, forgive me if I dont shake your hand!

Sorry to bump this dead topic, but I just had to say something since I've drank a little bit...
This quote was back on the first page I think...
"If one wishes to find consolation in this world, one must be prepared to accept at least one or two large lies" Graf Ulrich von Bek

I can't argue with it, it's a compelling quote, but at the same time, I can't help but assume it has to do with religion. Do you really have to "Believe" to be consoled? Can't I just seek the truth in everything? Or am I interpreting this wrong?

If so, then ignore the rest of this, until the quotes at the bottom :lol:

I don't know if it's an aspie part of me but I always seem to want to know the hard facts of things, which doesn't quite match up with the ol' bible.

I do believe something made this universe... that's it. In my mind, that "something" wasn't a human-type being (the bible says people are created in the image of God). I don't believe a bunch of stuff that was written thousands of years ago with no proof... the other day in the newspaper I happened to glance at the spiritual page, and somebody asked for proof that there is life after death. The guy had proof!! ! "The lord died and then rose again from the dead, returning from the dead and ascending into heaven to give us eternal life!! !" Not quite the proof I was seeking. I don't recall the creation of billions of solar systems in our universe being mentioned in the Book. How can people call Islam crazy (it is pretty extreme, like many others) when our religion (referring to christianity) was also just sortof "made up" a couple thousand years ago?

Not to be a diabolical as*hole (really, I'm not), because I have always been a christian in "principle" but have trouble believing something that a large part of the world assumes is true because of the bible. The average schmo wasn't very bright back then, even less so than today if i'm not mistaken (to be taken with a grain of sarcasm). Sometimes it seems the bible is really just a reason to scare people in to holding morals, but no scare tactics should be required, although I guess they are... sometimes I hate people as a whole.

Please don't start a huge argument over this, just in case somebody wanted to, because I'm not trying to start any fights or anything... just really want an answer to the "are we supposed to believe lies?" stuff... Maybe in 20 years I'll believe the stories just so that I can be consoled like everyone else does when they grow up.



Or maybe the quote wasn't referring to religion after all... maybe just old fashioned "skeletons in the closet" type stuff.



Anyways, the suess quotes are pure gold. And since there's so much simpsons talk, anybody remember Burns saying, "Smithers! There's a rocket in my pocket!"?

How bout Tom Petty? People come, people go; some grow young, some grow cold
