Okay - so he plagiarized and then wrote it in Gaelic in order for it to be approved by the Chichester Diocese. Who the hell can read Gaelic?

I certainly remember hearing reports of Spike making that crack about what he wanted for an epitaph when I was young, well before the internet

In the www era, plagiarism has become a more plausible alternative explanation for people on opposite sides of the world having the same idea, but it's still not a slam dunk.

You're absolutely right. My apologizes to all Spike Lee fans.

Chay Blyth on entering the first solo nonstop circumnavigation race around all horns with no prior sailing experience. He said it was like going to hell with an instruction manual.

"Seas are getting Stormy
I'm getting Horney...
Only tail I need...
Is not from a winch but a wench!
This is sailing my friend, ain't it the liven end!"

Is that a favourite quote, or a response to Pelagic's "poetry" (to use the word loosely)

Pelagic's "poetry".

When I was 12, I was quite surprised that Shakespear translated so beautifully into English. Pelagic, not so much.

Awesome!

Reminds me of this one I found a long time ago.

"The scale of your homes should be derived from the real needs of your daily lives, not from vanity, insecurity, or a need for public display. Home should be the setting of your life, not the measure of it."
