A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

If you think culture is expensive
try ignorance instead :twisted:
Deep within every dilemma lies a solution that involves duct tape.

It's a lovely, lovely thing.
My torment is that now I have 2 daughters and get even less shed-time than before, but still I plug away with my weak little frenchfry fingers and sure enough, I sound a bit less crap than before.
You going to do another raffle?

Materialien zu einer Kritik der bekanntesten Gedichtform italienischen Ursprungs

Sonette find ich sowas von beschissen,
so eng, rigide, irgendwie nicht gut;
es macht mich ehrlich richtig krank zu wissen,
daß wer Sonette schreibt. Daß wer den Mut

hat, heute noch so´n dumpfen Scheiß zu bauen;
allein der Fakt, daß so ein Typ das tut,
kann mir in echt den ganzen Tag versauen.
Ich hab da eine Sperre. Und die Wut

darüber, daß so´n abgefuckter Kacker
mich mittels seiner Wichserein blockiert,
schafft in mir Aggressionen auf den Macker.

Ich tick nicht, was das Arschloch motiviert.
Ich tick es echt nicht. Und wills echt nicht wissen:
Ich find Sonette unheimlich beschissen.
Robert Gernhardt - Neue Frankfurter Schule

Belatedly, but to the point, here's Dr Johnson on plagiarism (forgive me if I've got this wrong):

"Your work is both original and good. Unfortunately the good parts are not original, and the original parts are not good"

What a guy!

A pessimist is someone who sees difficulty in every opportunity. An optimist is someone who sees opportunity in every difficulty.
