"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
Albert Einstein


Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country. -- Steven Wright

When I turned two I was really anxious, because I'd doubled my age in a year.
I thought, if this keeps up, by the time I'm six I'll be ninety.
-- Steven Wright

I got food poisoning today. I don't know when I'll use it. -- Steven Wright

I stayed up all night playing poker with tarot cards.
I got a full house and four people died.
-- Steven Wright

OK, so what's the speed of dark?

Well, I've always been a fan of Frost's Road Less Traveled, but in lieu of that:

"Boy, it's comin' down harder than a cow pissin' on a flat rock out 'ere!!!" Contractor describing the weather event taking place during Hurricane Gustov during some "emergency repairs" to the flood protection system where I work.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die."

From the film Blade Runner (replace words in italics with your own exquisite experiences).

"The ocean has always been a salve to my soul...the best thing for a cut or abrasion was to go swimming in salt water. Later down the road of life I made the discovery that salt water was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land." ~ Jimmy Buffett

"People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost." ~ Dalai Lama

"The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these danger sufficient reason for remaining ashore." ~ Vincent Van Gogh

1) Never underestimate the power of denial.
2) Sometimes it is wise to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're an idiot rather than open it and confirm their suspicion,
3) I'm so poor the bank came by and repossessed their calender.
