Right on.

Worst

RE: Words I want to remember
I'm kind of paraphrasing this from one of the posts on the Favorite Pics to Laugh at Religion page:

Morality: doing what's right regardless of what you're told.
Religion: doing what your told regardless of what is right.

"I feel as though the camera is almost a kind of voyeur in Mr. Beans life, and you just watch this bizarre man going about his life in the way that he wants to."

No, this is more like the prosecution in a civil suit arguing the accused must be guilty of property damage because he used a ray gun he bought from visiting aliens from Delta Vega to vaporize his neighbour's priceless antique hypercube, the defense is arguing for accident because the while the accused did fire the ray gun, the Vegans hadn't given him the manual for it and he thought it was on the light show setting, and by the way, there's also no external evidence that either the neighbour, the ray gun, the hypercube, or the aliens ever existed.

cjlr's final allegory to the interminable argument with Luminon, inspired stuff!

What the hell's the point of that when we already have the word "unknowable"? To save three syllables?

I feel like a cjlr groupie at the moment Blush
