"Quote of the Day:

Doubt is our product since it is the best means of competing with the ‘body of fact’ that exists in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy."

From a cigarette industry report on dangers of smoking (quoted in David Michaels’ “Doubt is Their Product“)

Don´t use astrology like a diaper.

Experience things, instead of trying to predict how they will turn out before you even try them.

The reality is, sometimes you´re gonna shit yourself.

It´s part of the process.

Clean yourself up and move on.

From a John Cleese interview.

Interviewer asks

“ John, now that You’re older......

John interrupts....

”I’m not older. I’m nearly dead...but that’s alright.

Most of the best people are dead.” :4:

Good one, but it´s not just Americans...

Nobody likes the truth.

It it doesn´t jive with what "you want" then it sucks...

Pretty much babies at heart, we all are...

But not in a good way..

The Sheep-Thief´s Message

Mr. Pratt, your sheep are very fat,
And we thank you for that;
We have left you the skins to pay your wife´s pins,
And you must thank us for that.

The real story of the "incredulous" quote is that it was used by our Senior VP of Retail Operations (a pretentious sounding title in itself) in an email...I thought it was a pretentious, over the top sounding phrase, and wondered if he broke out the thesaurus or bounced ideas off his wife at 11 o´clock at night while he was writing the email...

I seized on it, and started getting on the crew about their "comportment", and how it was the height of "incredulity"...

In a joking way of course...

I was mostly ignored, since the crew expects that kind of nonsense from me...

I did have a friend at work who appreciated that kind of thing though, so every time one of the corporates used a 25 cent word in an email, we would christen it "the word of the month", and find ways to work it into even the most mundane, everyday conversations...

That was a funny month... :4:
