"Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity."

and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off."

"I awake in the morning,
        torn between a desire to save the world,
        and a desire to savor the world.
        That makes it hard to plan the day."

God has no religion. 
- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) 
1. Birds of a feather flock together and crap on your car.

2. There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.
    For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

3. When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to
    the end of his chain and gag himself.

4. If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

5. Don't assume malice for what stupidity can explain.

6. A penny saved is a government oversight.

7. The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
    but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

8. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and
    your fat are really good friends.

9. The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

10. He who hesitates is probably right.

11. If you think there is good in everybody, you haven't met everybody.

12. If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

If government were a product, selling it would be illegal.
Government is a health hazard. Governments have killed many more people than cigarettes or unbuckled seat belts ever have. Government contains impure ingredients - as anybody who's looked at Congress can tell you... Government should be against the law. Term limits aren't enough. We need jail.
There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

If ignorance is bliss why are so many people unhappy? (contributed by Chris Smith) 


I've found Jesus. He was behind the sofa the whole time.

Practice random acts of intelligence & senseless acts of self-control.

I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for 30 years.

Suburbia: where they tear out the trees and then
name streets after them.

I can't remember if I'm the good twin or the evil one.

Too many freaks, not enough circuses.

A hard-on doesn't count as personal growth.

Don't bother me. I'm living happily ever after.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left.

He who laughs last thinks slowest.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Sometimes I wake up grumpy;
Other times I let him sleep.

Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

Ever stop to think and forget to start again?

          THINGS I WISH I HAD SAID (contributed by Antara)

Did the aliens forget to remove your anal probe?

 Allow me to introduce my selves.

Back off! You're standing in my aura.

 How many times do I have to flush before you go away?

It's sick the way you people keep having sex without me.

I'm not tense, just terribly, terribly alert.

Earth is full. Go home.

more people worry than work.
