    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence proof of an incredibly complex conspiracy.

    The Holy Roman Empire was neither Holy, Roman lead by a ruler crowned by the Pope you ignorant nonce nor an Empire by definition an empire. I hate when people regurgitate famous quotes without context like the fact this one was made at the empire's weakest and least relevant point shortly before it was was dissolved. It's unfair to apply to it in general without acknowledging a more nuanced timeline. It's basic bitch history.

    “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: I guess it's okay? I now realize that is more than three words. And now I realize that there are considerably more than three words after the colon. Man, I hope someone misquotes this and makes me sound cool. Oh, wait wait wait! Cut out everything between the colon and here, and go with 'It goes on'” -Robert Frost

    I may have the body of a weak and feeble weed addict, but I have the heart and stomach of someone on fatal amounts of meth.

    To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? Who's Toby? 'you callin' me tubby?!

    It was the best of the times, it was the worst of times, it was $100 an hour and I only paid for a quickie.

    The arc of the moral universe is long a Krazy Straw, but it bends toward justice.
