"Leave your college decisions up to God!"

Twice.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

"Take two they're small."


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Of course they're really hard to remember, so I write them down and stick them to my monitor for easy reference... Smartass

Facepalm

Here's something I think is a tad better....

Think of a phrase only you could know (i.e. not in a book). So if you've got a dog named "Spot", one phrase could be:

Out damned Spot and never piss or shit on my carpet again!

Thence into an acronym...

odpanposomca! (leave in the exclamation mark)

Now capitalise and substitute numbers and special characters....

0d5@Np050mc@!

Et volia! A thirteen-character, easy to remember password that will resist any brute force or dictionary-based attack (including those nasty ones that use phrases found in books).

"I don't mind being wrong...it's a time I get to learn something new..."
Me.

"Try it. You'll like it."

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

RE: The worst ever advice you've received
"It's always in the last place you look."

Most objectively worthless piece of advice to ever come out of the mouths of any human ever; it says nothing.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I loved George Carlin's rant on this....now if I can just rustle that up on Youtube...
