460Information wants to be beer... or something like that. <BR>	-- Anon.

479It is acquired wisdom and experience only that teach incredulity, and they very seldom teach it enough. <BR>	-- Adam Smith
480Economics, over the years, has become more and more abstract and divorced from events in the real world. Economists, by and large, do not study the workings of the actual economic system.

487Dear Lord... So far today I am doing all right. I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent. However, I am going to get out of bed in a few minutes, and I will need a lot more help after that. Amen.

846I believe I have no prejudices whatsoever. All I need to know is that a man is a member of the human race. That's bad enough for me. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
847I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
848I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can't find anybody who can tell me what they want. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

854If man had created man, he would be ashamed of his performance. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
855If we were supposed to talk more than we listen, then we would have two mouths and only one ear. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
856If you have nothing to say, say nothing. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
857If you invent two or three people and turn them loose in your manuscript, something is bound to happen to them -- you can't help it; and then it will take you the rest of the book to get them out of the natural consequences of that occurrence, and so first thing you know, there's your book all finished up and never cost you an idea. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
858Ignorant people think it is the noise which fighting cats make that is so aggravating, but it ain't so; it is the sickening grammar that they use. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

860I have never taken any exercise except sleeping and resting. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
861I have not a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming vices. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
862I'm glad I did it, partly because it was worth it, but mostly because I shall never have to do it again. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
863I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
864Indecency, vulgarity, obscenity -- these are strictly confined to man; he invented them. Among the higher animals there is no trace of them. They hide nothing; they are not ashamed. Man, with his soiled mind, covers himself... Man is the Animal that Blushes. He is the only one that does it -- or has occasion to. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
865I never could tell a lie that anybody would doubt, nor a truth that anybody would believe. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
866In the real world, the right thing never happens in the right place and the right time. It is the job of journalists and historians to make it appear that it has. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
867I respect a man who knows how to spell a word more than one way. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
868I thoroughly disapprove of duels. I consider them unwise and I know they are dangerous. Also, sinful. If a man should challenge me now I would go to that man and take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet retired spot and kill him. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
869It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not to deserve them. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
870It is discouraging to try and penetrate a mind like yours. You ought to get it out and dance on it. That would take some of the rigidity out of it. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
871It is not best that we should all think alike; it is differences of opinion that make horse races. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

873Let us be thankful for fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
874Let us not be too particular: it is better to have old second hand diamonds than none at all. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
875Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one's head. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
876Love your enemy, it will scare the hell out of them. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
877Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion- several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
878Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out... and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel... And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for "the universal brotherhood of man" - with his mouth. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
879Man is the only creature who has a nasty mind. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

883Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
884Nothing that grieves us can be called little: by the eternal laws of proportion a child's loss of a doll and a king's loss of a crown are events of the same size. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
885October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
886Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
887Often the surest way to convey misinformation is to tell the strict truth. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
888Of the delights of this world man cares most for sexual intercourse, yet he has left it out of his heaven. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
889One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity there ain't nothing can beat teamwork. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

896Such is the human race, often it seems a pity that Noah... didn't miss the boat. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
897The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
898The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creatures that cannot. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
899The holy passion of friendship is of so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
900The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
901The humorous story is American, the comic story is English, the witty story is French. The humorous story depends for its effect upon the manner of the telling; the comic and the witty upon the matter. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
902The jury system puts a ban upon intelligence and honesty and a premium upon ignorance, stupidity and perjury. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
903The pause - that impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence, which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words, howsoever felicitous, could accomplish it. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
904The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
905The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out, the conservative adopts them. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
906There are people who can do all fine and heroic things but one -- keep from telling their happiness to the unhappy. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
907There are some books that refuse to be written. They stand their ground year after year and will not be persuaded. It isn't because the book is not there and worth being written -- it is only because the right form of the story does not present itself. There is only one right form for a story and if you fail to find that form the story will not tell itself. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
908There are too many stars in some places and not enough in others. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
909There are two times in a man's life when he should not speculate: when he can't afford it, and when he can. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
910There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life that he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
911There's always something about your success that displeases even your best friends. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
912There is no sadder sight than a young pessimist, except an old optimist. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
913There is nothing training cannot do. Nothing is above its reach. It can turn bad morals to good; it can destroy bad principles and recreate good ones; it can lift men to angelship. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
914There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
915The secret of success is to make your vocation your vacation. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
916The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
917The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that ain't so. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
918Thunder is good, thunder is impressive, but it is lightning that does the work. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
919They spell it "da Vinci" and pronounce it "da Vinchy". Foreigners always spell better than they pronounce. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
920Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
921Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
922Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
923Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
924Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
925We do not deal in facts when we are contemplating ourselves. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
926We had the stars up there," said Huck, "And we use to lie on our backs and look up at them and discuss 'bout whether they was made or just happened. Jim he allowed that the stars was made, but I allowed they just happened. Jim said the Moon could'a laid them; Well, that looked kind of reasonable so I didn't say nothing against it. I've seen a frog lay most as many, so of course it could be done. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
927We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
928We have a criminal jury system which is superior to any in the world; and its efficiency is only marred by the difficulty of finding twelve men every day who don't know anything and can't read. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
929We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that a savage has, because we know how it is made. We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
930We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one either. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
931What is the most rigorous law of our being?  Growth. No smallest atom of our moral, mental, or physical structure can stand still a year. It grows - it must grow; nothing can prevent it. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
932When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to go to pieces like this but we all have to do it. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
933When one has tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
934When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
935When you ascend the hill of prosperity, may you not meet a friend. <BR>	-- Mark Twain
936Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform. <BR>	-- Mark Twain

949The leading cause of death among fashion models is falling through street grates. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
950First off, you need an operating system, which is the 'Godfather' program that operates behind the scenes, telling all the other programs what to do, making sure they cooperate, and if necessary leaving the heads of virtual horses in their beds. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
951After the little yeasts are done converting your ingredients into beer, they die horrible deaths by the millions. You shouldn't feel bad about this. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
952The two most common taxpayer mistakes, states the IRS booklet, are (1) 'failure to include a current address' and (2) 'failure to be a large industry that gives humongous contributions to key tax-law writing congresspersons.'  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
953Those of you who were fortunate enough to read last year's column no doubt recall that I advised you to cheat, on the grounds that by reducing the amount of money you gave the government, you'd be supporting the President in his program to reduce government spending. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
954Alaska was originally a large place located way the hell past Canada, but this proved to be highly inconvenient for mapmakers, who in 1873 voted to make it smaller and put it into a little box next to Hawaii right off the coast of Calafornia, where it is today. <BR>	-- Dave Barry

957The Third Amendment states that you don't have to quarter troops inside your house. "You troops are just going to have to sleep on the patio" is a perfectly constitutional thing for you to tell them. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
958The Fifth Amendment states that your Fifth Amendment rights cannot be violated until you are advised of them. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
959The Sixth Amendment states that if you are accused of a crime, you have the right to a trial before a jury of people too stupid to get out of jury. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
960The Seventh Amendment states that if you are in the Express Lane, and you have more than one item of produce of the same biological type, you may count these as one item in order to keep yourself under the ten-item limit. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
961The members of the Continental Congress were extremely impressed by the Decleration of Independence that Jefferson had written, at least the part that they read, and on the following day, October 8th, the nation celebrated its very first July Fourth. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
962The Mayans were constructing a culture down in Mexico featuring a calander so advanced that it can still, to this very day, tell you where various celestial bodies such as Venus and the Moon will be at any given moment. THEY WILL BE OUT IN SPACE, states the miraculous Mayan calender. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
963Today's top executives eat teeny meals and run 10 miles and play tennis and work out every day. Of course, they're so busy getting fit that many don't even know where their offices are. That's why the entire U.S. economy is now manufactured in Japan. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
964Every morning you should take a vitamin D pill, followed by an E, until you've spelled the healthful mnemonic phrase: "A DEAD CAD BAKED A BAD CAKE, ACE."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
965The Four Major Warning Signs of Vitamin Deficiency are: (1) Nosebleeds, (2) A sudden fondness for Wayne Newton, (3) Unusually thick coats on woolly caterpillars, and (4) Death. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
966White bread and refined sugar, if eaten, cause death within hours. So it's important to watch what you eat, at least until it gets inside your mouth. After that it becomes pretty disgusting. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
967One good place to run is in the Olympic marathon, because (a) you only have to do it once every four years, and (b) you have an armed motorcycle escort, so if people try to thrust liquids and fruits at you, which is a common problem in marathons, you can order your escort to fire a few warning rounds into their chests. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
968Archeologists digging in what was once ancient Sumeria recently found the remains of a primitive stone jockstrap. This goes a long way toward explaining why you see so few Sumerians around. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
969You can't just sit down and dash off a column that says: "The Middle East! Ha ha!  What a bunch of boogerheads!"  No, there is a lot more to it than THAT. As a respected commentator, I am expected to produce a column that is thoughtful, insightful, profound, and - above all - 800 words long. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
970Remember the wise words of the old Indian saying: "Before you criticize a man's collection of columns, walk a mile in his moccasins, bearing in mind that this is a good way to catch a fungus."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
971All of Mister Language Person's answers are intended to be as accurate and informative as is humanly possible while still containing words such as "booger."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
972I've determined that we have a worldwide exploding-thing epidemic on our hands, and until further notice we should all take the sensible precaution of avoiding things whenever possible. For example, you should never have bought this book. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
973Spontaneous human combustion is when people, with no apperant cause, suddenly start burning like campfire marshmellows, reaching temperatures of thousands of degrees andbeing completely reduced to ashes. This is often fatal. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
974The responsibility for getting rid of the carcass of the eight-ton dead whale that washed up on Oregon's beach was placed upon the Oregon State Highway Division, apparently on the theory that highways and whales are very similar in the sense of being large objects. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
975Professor Donald Johnson has been studying cow flatulence for 20 years, and has determined that the average cow emits 200 to 400 quarts of methane PER DAY, resulting in a total annual world cow methane output of 50 million metric TONS. (Campers: This is yet another argument for NEVER allowing a cow inside your sleeping bag.)  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
976Clearly what is called for is a federal task force, ideally headed by Dan Quayle, who seems to have a lot of spare time, assuming that he is not called upon to suddenly, without warning, become the president of the United States. (Published in DAVE BARRY TALKS BACK, 1991)  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
977All the people who have led moral lives will go straight to heaven, whereas you and your friends are going to suffer through seven years of war, plagues, famines, and sitting in a small room while a man named "Nate" explains the advantages of time-sharing. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
978The article quotes a wildlife official as saying that great horned owls "regularly" attack people. "They have very powerful feet," the official says, leading us to believe that it is just a matter of time before these creatures are employed by automobile dealerships ("No thanks really, I was just look... HEY!  Let GO!!"). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
97918th Century Tax Forms: "To determineth the amounteth that thou canst claimeth for depreciation to thine cow, deducteth the amount showneth on Line XVLIICX-A of Schedule XIV, from the amount showneth on Line CVXILIIVMM of Schedule XVVII... No, waiteth, we meaneth Line XCII of Schedule CXVIILMM... No holdeth it, we meaneth..."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
980The scientists at the World Center for Birds of Prey are trying to breed falcons, sometimes via artificial insemination, which means they (the scientists) have to get hold of some falcon semen, which you cannot simply pick up in your local supermarket. (Well, OK, you CAN, but it's not fresh.)  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
981A Health Reminder from the Bureau of Medical Alarm: Don't smoke or drink. Or eat. Or go outside. Or breathe. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
982The metric conversion was clearly a good idea, and when the government started putting up metric highway signs (SPEED LIMIT 173 CENTIPDES) Americans warmly responded by shooting them down. Thus, the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
983Anybody who has ever seen a photograph showing the kind of damage that a trout falling at such a high speed can inflict on the human skull knows that such photographs are very valuable. I paid $20 for mine. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
984Dave's Safety Precautions: (1) Never keep three-year-old children around the house. (2) If you do, never sleep. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
985Disney World is a place where your dreams really do come true, if you dream about having people wearing enormous cartoon-animal heads come around to your restaurant table and act whimsical and refuse to go away until you laugh with delight. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
986I think the people wearing enormous cartoon-animal heads at Disney World are part of a corporate discipline program for Disney executives: "Johnson, your department is over budget again. You know what that means." "No! Please!"  "Yes!  INTO THE GOOFY SUIT!"  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
987I like Disney World. The rest rooms are clean enough for neurosurgery, and the employees say things like "Howdy, folks!" and actually seem to mean it. You wonder: Where do they get these people?  My guess: 1952. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
988Tragically, my wife and I both happen to be domestically impaired. If we were birds, our nest would consist of a single twig with the eggs attached via Scotch tape. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
989Nintendo enables the child to develop a sense of self-worth by mastering a complex, demanding task that makes his father look like a total goober. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
990The typical Nintendo game involves controlling a little man who runs around on the screen trying to stay alive while numerous powerful and inexplicably hostile forces try to kill him; in other words, it's exactly like real life. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
991When I play Nintendo, the little man on the screen becomes highly suicidal. If he can't locate a hostile force to get killed by, he will deliberately swallow the contents of a little elctronic Valium bottle. So all my games end instantly, whereas my son can keep the little man alive through several presidential administrations. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
992The trick to remember while backing a boat into a carport is, if you turn your car wheels to the right ("starboard"), the boat trailer will actually go to the LEFT ("forecastle"), until your wife ("Beth") announces that you have run over a sprinkler head ("$12.95"). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
993Finally, when I was fully confident that, if necessary, I could take the boat out myslef and get everyone killed, we returned home to spend a carefree evening washing our hull. You have to do this because - get ready for a fascinating nautical fact - seawater is very bad for boats. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
994We wanted to have a relaxing family vacation, so we got together with two other families and rented a sailboat in the Virgin Islands. There is nothing as relaxing as being out on the open sea,listening to the waves and the wind and the sails and voices downstairs yelling "HOW DO YOU FLUSH THESE TOILETS?"  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
995We hired a local captain for the first afternoon of our cruise to demonstrate the finer points of seamanship. He was on our boat for a total of three hours, during which he demonstrated that he could drink six of our beers and two large direct-from-the-bottle swigs of our rum and still not fall headfirst into the Caribbean. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
996It's a basic rule of seamanship that everybody's clothes have to be wet all the time. If there's no wind to make the ship lean over, thus allowing water to splash in and get all the clothes wet, you are required by maritime law to throw your clothes overboard a couple of times a day. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
997The key to a successful Summer Vacation Adventure is preperation. For example, if you're planning a trip to Europe to visit historic sites such as the Hunchback of Notre Dame Cathedral, you should prepare RIGHT NOW by setting fire to your airline tickets. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
998Until I became a parent, I thought children just naturally knew how to catch a ball, that catching was an instinctive biological reflex that all children are born with, like knowing how to operate the remote control or getting high fevers in distant airports. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
999I was genuinely surprised by the hostile reaction to my column about England, and all I can say to those concerned is: I humbly apoligize for offending you, and I promise that I will never, ever again, even in jest, say anything remotely insulting about England, and I especially will not make note of the obvious defects in the royal gene pool. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1000Recently my family and I spent a week in London, which is a popular foreign place to visit because they have learned to speak some English over there. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1001The British have a lot of trouble with pronunciation, because they can't move their jaw muscles, because of malnutrition caused by wisely refusing to eat English food, much of which was designed and manufactured in medieval times during the reign of King Walter the Mildly Disturbed. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1002English history consists largely of royal people getting their heads chopped off, which is why members of the royal family now wear protective steel neck inserts, which is why they walk the way they do. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1003In America, people drive on the RIGHT side of the street, whereas in London, they drive on BOTH sides of the street, using hard-to-see cars about the size of toaster ovens. The best way to handle this, as a tourist, is to remain on one side of the street for your entire visit, and see the other side on another trip. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1004The Hawaiian Islands were discovered by hardy Polynesian sailors, who crossed thousands of miles of open ocean in primitive canoes, braving violent storm-tossed seas for months at a time. My family and I arrived by modern commercial aviation, which was infinitely worse. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1005Here at the Institute of Scary foods we are highly suspicious of olives, which, in our opinion, are the eyeballs of giant frogs. We believe that if you stood outside an olive factory, you'd hear the unmistakable tragic sound (RIBBETT-THUMP; RIBBETT-THUMP) of terrified sightless frogs leaping into things. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1006This fall, we'll be seeing a new, redesigned $20 bill. This is part of an anti-counterfeiting program to redesign all of our old currency, which has become too easy to duplicate with modern color photocopiers - a fact that was made all too clear when the Xerox Corp., in its 1997 annual report, reported profits of "$850 trillion, mostly in 50s."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1007To thwart would-be photocopiers, instead of saying "TWENTY DOLLARS," the new, redesigned $20 bills say "FIFTEEN DOLLARS."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1008I turned 50, which is really not so old. A lot of very famous people accomplished great things after 50. For example, it was during the post-50 phase of his life that the brilliant physicist Albert Einstein produced the vast majority of his drool. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1009I decided I'd better go in for my annual physical examination, which is something I do approximately every seven to nine years. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1010>From the Hippocratic Oath: "And I swear by my Lexus that if a person comes into my office for any reason, whether it be for a physical examination or simply to deliver the mail, I will find something medically wrong with that person."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1011Everybody should have a pet. And I'm not saying this just because the American Pet Council gave me a helicopter. I'm also saying it because my family has always owned pets, and without them, our lives would not be nearly so rich in - call me sentimental, but this is how I feel - dirt. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1012A Labrador retriever is a large enthusiastic bulletproof species of dog made entirely of synthetic materials. This is the kind of dog that, if it takes an interest in your personal regions (which of course it does) you cannot fend it off with a blowtorch. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1013For sheer hostility in a pet, you can't beat a parrot. I base this statement on a parrot I knew named Charles who belonged to a couple named Ed and ginny. Charles had an IQ of 260 and figured out early in life that if he talked to people, they'd get close enough so he could bite them. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1014I got hundreds of responses to my "Eat Bugs For Money" column, including dozens of people who were willing to eat bugs for free. Bear in mind that, under our system of government, these people can vote. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1015Guys are biologically capable of keeping track of a huge number of TV programs simultaneously by changing the channel the instant something boring happens, such as dialouge. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1016Women, because of a tragic genetic flaw, feel compelled to watch only ONE PROGRAM AT A TIME, the way people did back in the Middle Ages, before the invention of the remote control. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1017There was a survey in which researchers asked tourists how come they didn't want to come back to New York City, and the tourists said it was because there was so much mean-spiritedness. So the researchers spat on them. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1018Everybody in New York, including police horses, dresses fashionably, and whenevr I'm there, even in my sharpest funeral-quality suit with no visible ketchup stains, I feel as though I'm wearing a Hefty trash bag. And it's LAST YEAR'S Hefty trash bag. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1019The United Nations reception area was filled with representatives of nations large and small, rich and poor, from all over the world; and although I sometimes tend to be cynical, I could not help but be deeply moved, as a journalist and a human being, by the fact that some of these people had haircuts EVEN WORSE THAN MINE. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1020I am forced to admit that I would rather undergo a vasectomy via Weed Whacker than attend an opera. The one time I did sit through one, it lasted approximately as long as fourth grase and featured large men singing for 45 minutes in a foreign language merely to observe that the sun had risen. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1021The Holiday Season is here again, and there's "something special" in the air. It's the aroma being given off by our mailperson, who expired in our driveway several days ago while attempting to deliver 300 pounds of Holiday Greeting cards. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1022The Ten Plagues of Egypt are: blood, darkness, blight, slaying of the first born, wild beasts, lice, boils, locusts, hail and -- you guessed it -- Leonardo DiCaprio. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1023The First Rule of Car Buying is one that I learned long ago from my father, namely: Never buy any car that my father would buy. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1024Modern cars employ all kinds of technologically advanced concepts such as measuring the engine in "liters."  Let's say you buy a car with a "5.7 liter engine": This means that when it breaks, you should not ask your mechanic how much it's going to cost until you've consumed 5.7 liters of a manufacturer-approved wine. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1025Pennies were invented during the Great Depression, a grim era that was filmed entirely in black and white. The nation needed a very small unit of money, because back then - ask anybody who lived through it - the average salary was only four cents per year, and houses cost a dime, and a dollar would buy you a working railroad. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1026It is at times like this that we should remember the words of President John F. Kennedy, who, in his stirring inaugural address, said: "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask whether your country has been inhaling paint-thinner fumes."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1027You readers really came through in our Defecit Reduction Contest, proving once againthat when the American people decide to "get involved" in a problem, it is best not to let them have any sharp implements. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1028In your suggestions for our Defecit Reduction Contest, by reading between the lines, I detected a certain amount of hostility in these entries, especially the ones proposing a nuclear strike on the U.S. Capitol. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1029I am sick and tired of our so-called representatives in Washington being influenced by powerful special-interest groups on crucial federal issues. As you have no doubt gathered, I am referring to the current effort to name an Official National Insect. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1030Today's Tip for Fiction Writers: To make your writing more vivid, insert a literary device. WEAK: "Detective Jake Turmoil slowly opened the door to the killer's room."  STRONG: "Detective Jake Turmoil slowly opened the door to the killer's room and a metaphor sliced off his head."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1031IRS HUMOR EXAMPLE: "A lawyer, a doctor, and a priest were marooned on a desert island. So we consificated their homes."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1032English spelling is unusual because our language is a rich verbal tapestry woven together from the tounges of the Greeks, the Latins, the Angles, the Klaxons, the Celtics, the 76ers, and many other ancient peoples, all of whom had severe drinking problems. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1033The main punctuation marks are the period, the coma, the colonel, the semicolonel, the probation mark, the catastrophe, the eclipse, the Happy Face, and the box where the person checks "yes" to receive more information. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1034There is definitely too much anger in the world today. Pick up almost any newspaper, and the odds are you'll get ink smeared all over your hands. We use a special kind of easy-smear ink, because we know how much it irritates you. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1035As you know if you ever studied the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle, he was easily the most boring human being who ever lived. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1036We can find evidence of anger in the animal kingdom. The great white shark, for example, periodically gets furious at the small seaside resort town of Amity and tries to eat all the residents, possibly in an effort to prevent another sequel. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1037If you were to probe inside the guy psyche, beneath that macho exterior and the endless droning about things like the 1978 World Series, you would find, deep down inside, a passionate, heartfelt interest in: the 1978 World Series. Yes. The truth is, guys don't HAVE any sensitive innermost thoughts and feelings. It's time you women knew!  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1038My editor, Gene, can remember the complete starting lineups for the New York Yankee teams from 1960 through 1964, and yet rountinely makes calls wherein, after he dials the phone, he forgets who he's calling, so when somebody answers, Gene has to ask (a) who it is, and (b) does this person happen to know the purpose of the call. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1039Today's man knows that he's supposed to be a sensitive and caring relationship partner, and he's making radical life-style changes such as sometimes remembering to remove the used tissue wads from his pockets before depositing his pants on the floor to be picked up by the Laundry Fairy. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1040There was respect in Robert's eyes as I strode out to face the spider. As well there should have been. Here in South Florida we have a special name for this kind of spider: We call it "a spider the size of Harold C. Crittenden Junior High School," although its technical Latin name is "Bernice."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1041Like many South Floridians, we have our house in a neighborhod that we are pretty sure is occupied by drug dealers, as indicated by subtle signs such as cars coming and going at all hours, bed sheets over the windows, a big sign stating, DRUGS FOR SALE HERE, etc. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1042If you're looking for a sport that offers both of the Surgeon General's Two Recommended Key Elements of Athletic Activity, namely (1) rental shoes and (2) beer, then you definitely want to take up bowling. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1043I love to bowl. I even belong to a bowling team, the Pin Worms. How good are we?  I don't wish to brag, but we happen to be ranked, in the World Bowling Association standings, under the heading "Severely Impaired."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1044On planes, I always take a window seat, because I want to know if a wing falls off. The pilot would never even mention this. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1045Guys are AWARE of the rules of moral behaviour, but they have trouble keeping these rules in the forefronts of their minds at certain times, especially the present. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1046I realize, of course, that there are countless examples of guys being faithful to their mates until they die, usually as a result of being eaten by their mates immediately following copulation. Guys outside the spider community, however, do not have a terrific record of faithfulness. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1047As the ancient Greek historian Thucydides often said when he was alive, "History is a bunch of things that happened in the past."  His point was that human civilization is a journey, and only by retracing the steps of that journey can we truly come to know, as a species, where we lost our keys. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1048January 1, 1000, was the historic day that humanity celebrated the dawn of our current millennium. The occasion was marked by feasting, dancing, and the public beheading of a whiny, tedious group of people who would not stop insisting that, technically, the new millennium did not begin until January 1, 1001. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1049Feudalism was based on a "ladder-type" of organizational structure, similar to Amway. You started out on the bottom rung, in the position of serf. This was not an easy job, but if you worked hard, followed the rules, did not complain and were a "team player," after a certain period of time, you fell off the bottom rung and died. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1050Leif Ericson, the legendary Viking, and his hardy crew set sail from Greenland and finally, after many harrowing weeks at sea during which they almost perished, discovered a new land. It turned out to be Canada, so they went home. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1051In 1337 France, which was then under King Philip VI, was invaded by England, which was then under King Edward III, who had vowed to kill any monarch with a higher Roman numeral. This led to the Hundred Years War, which, because of delays caused by equipment problems, is still going on. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1052Being burned at the stake had become the punishment for just about every infraction including jousting without a permit. By the 1430s so many people had been burned at the stake that Europe ran out of stakes and had to start burning people at the lump of peat, which took forever. Eventually the fuel was exhausted, and the Dark Ages began. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1053And thus it was that in 1492 Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain and discovered America, which he believed was the East Indies. The reason he believed this is that prank-loving Vikings, who had discovered America 300 years earlier, had left a sign that said "WELCOME TO THE EAST INDIES!"  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1054By the 1500s there were ships sailing everywhere, carrying the message of European civilization to the indigenous peoples of Africa and the Americas (the message was: "Hi!  We own you!"). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1055Elizabeth I presided over the Elizabethan Era, which produced the immortal William Shakespeare, who wrote such timeless works as "Richard II", "Richard III", "Richard III Strikes Back" and "Hamlet Hears a Who", and who gave us a priceless legacy of famous phrases that, to this very day, are pretty much incomprehensible. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1056One night in 1609 an astronomer named Galileo, who had just invented a new device called the "telescope," peered through it and discovered that he could see directly into the bedroom window of a woman who lived nearly 500 feet away. As a result, many guys became interested in astronomy. Or so they told their wives. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1057Another important scientific advance occurred in 1614 when the logarithm was invented by Scottish mathematician John Napier. Some day, when time travel is invented, high-school students will go back and kill him. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1058In 1687 Sir Isaac Newton, after watching an apple fall off a tree, wrote his famous Principia Mathematica, which states that there is a universal force, called "gravity," inside apples. Later scientists would expand this definition to include grapefruit, but the basic concept remains unchanged to this day. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1059At this time France was experiencing its glory years under Louis XIV, who became known as the "Sun King" because he was more than 2 million miles in circumference. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1060But things were not so good for England, which in 1665 suffered through the Great Plague of London, which was followed in 1666 by the Great Fire of London, which was followed in 1667 by the first recorded attack on London by Godzilla. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1061SCIENTIFIC ADVANCES OF THE 1700s: In England, a chemist named Daniel Rutherford discovered nitrogen, without which many of us would not be here today. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1062In Egypt, soldiers discovered the Rosetta Stone (daughter of Sol and Esther Stone). This was very significant, because it enabled scholars, for the first time, to decipher ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, which turned out to be a letter from Publishers Clearing House informing the ancient Egyptians that they might already have won 200 sheep. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1063In 1765 the British Parliament passed the Stamp Act, which decreed that if the colonists wanted to buy stamps, they had to wait in long lines at inconveniently located postal facilities staffed by surly clerks who periodically went on murderous rampages with semiautomatic muskets. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1064On the fateful night of April 18, 1775, the Revolutionary War began when Paul Revere made his legendary "midnight ride," galloping all the way from Boston to Lexington while shouting the message that would resound through the annals of history: "I CAN'T STOP MY HORSE!"  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1065Finally, after many historic battles whose names all American schoolchildren should be forced to memorize before they are allowed to buy one more damn Pokemon card if you want our frank opinion, the British surrendered. At last, after years of oppression, all Americans were truly free! (Except for the slaves.)  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1066Soon the delegates to the Constitutional Convention were hard at work, and in 1788, the constitution they created underwent formal ratification, a complex legal procedure involving actual rats. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1067During the War of 1812 (1807-10), the British marched into Washington, D.C., and, with the help of local residents, burned the Internal Revenue Service to the ground. Tragically, it was rebuilt, and eventually the British went back to England, where many of them still reside today. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1068Meanwhile, over in Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte had himself crowned emperor of France in recognition of the fact that he, alone among all the French, could rearrange the letters in his name to spell "Rent An Abalone Poop."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1069A few years later England and China got into the Opium War, during which soldiers on both sides spent most of the time lying around staring at candles and going, "Wow!"  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1070In 1807, an American inventor named Robert Fulton put a steam engine aboard a ship called the Clermont. Needless to say, it sank like an anvil, thus confirming the widespread scientific belief that gravity was still working. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1071In 1860, Lincoln ran for president (slogan: "He's Taller Than You") and was elected, only to see the nation rent asunder in 1861 by the Civil War, starring Clark Gable as Rhett Butler. America descended into a long, dark nightmare as brother fought against brother. As you can imagine, this drove their mother crazy. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1072In 1859, English naturalist Charles Darwin published his groundbreaking work Origin of Species, in which he theorized that life evolves, through natural selection, from lower and cruder to higher and more sophisticated levels, except in Kansas. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1073In 1869, the Suez Canal was finally completed, which meant that for the first time ships could go from wherever the Suez Canal started to wherever it ended, something that had not been possible before. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1074In 1877, inventor Thomas Alva Edison leaned over a device and recited "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in a loud and clear voice. Nothing happened, because the device was a pencil sharpener. Embarrassed, Edison vowed that one day he would invent an electric light so he could see what the hell he was doing. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1075The U.S., determined to liberate Cuba from Spanish control, dispatched the famous "Rough Riders" in the legendary charge up San Juan Hill, only to enjoy a hearty laugh at their own expense when they realized that San Juan was in Puerto Rico. Historians believe this is the first known instance of the Central Intelligence Agency in action. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1076But an even more important thing happened in on Dec. 17, 1903, in Kitty Hawk, N.C.: two bicycle mechanics named Wilbur and Orville Wright Brothers, who as boys had dreamed of building a flying machine so they could drop bombs on the kids who laughed at them for being named "Wilbur" and "Orville," successfully tested the first airplane. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1077It was also an Age of Exploration. In 1909, Robert E. Peary reported that he had reached the North Pole; in 1911, Roald Amundsen reported that he had reached the South Pole; and in 1913 Walter M. Fleemotz of Decatur, Ga., reported that he had discovered the West Pole in his basement. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1078On a more upbeat note, the Russians, after centuries of oppression, finally got rid of the Czar System of government and switched to the Communist Dictator System, epitomized by Joseph Stalin, who came to power with the popular slogan "He Wants To Kill Pretty Much Everybody."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1079The 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote (for men). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1080In the arena of scientific progress, a German-born physicist named Albert Einstein was thinking up things that were so amazing they made his hair stick out. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1081The nation was plunged into the Great Depression, which resulted in joblessness, homelessness, poverty, hunger and literally millions of Shirley Temple movies, traces of which can still be seen today. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1082There was also hope in the Middle East, where the state of Israel was born in a happy celebration highlighted by festive artillery fire that is still going on in some areas. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1083And so, this New Year's Eve, when the clock strikes 12, raise a glass to toast the millions of our ancestors who went before us, paving the way for the safe and secure civilization that we enjoy today. Then, when the clock strikes 13 and the lights go out, start your generator and load your gun. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1084Dave on Y2K: At exactly midnight on Dec. 31, all the computers in the world, and an estimated 80 percent of the Etch-a-Sketches, will malfunction. In one way, this is good: Your Permanent Record from school will be erased forever, which means future generations will never find out that you once mooned a Thanksgiving assembly. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1085Dave on Y2K: Lights will go out; phones will stop working; juke boxes will refuse to play anything except ``Copacabana''; VCR machines will suddenly start displaying the correct time; and airline computers will charge people who are on the same flight THE EXACT SAME FARE. Within hours, civilization will collapse. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1086Unfortunately for Bill Gates, who built himself a house the size of the Houston Astrodome to store canned food in, the Y2K problem is also going to cause all the can openers in the world, both electric and manual, to become inoperable. But don't worry about Bill Gates: He employs many skilled, highly intelligent engineers. So he can eat them. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1087You must find a way, right now, to feed your family when Y2K strikes. You will NOT be able to grow crops, because photosynthesis will no longer work (many areas will also be without gravity). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1088Star Wars has become an important and cherished part of our shared cultural heritage, like Starbucks and Pez. And soon another chapter will be added to the Star Wars legend with the release of the long-awaited new installment in the series, entitled Episode One: The Empire Gets a Building Permit. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1089Dave on the characters of the original Star Wars trilogy: Along the way, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) meets many memorable characters, including Han Solo (Indiana Jones), Chewbacca (Sonny Bono), Princess Leia (Prince) and two quirky, lovable robots, C-3PO (Tony Danza) and R2-D2 (F7-Z9). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1090When a woman shops for clothes, her primary objective is NOT to find clothes that fit her particular body. Her primary objective is to purchase clothes that are the size she wore when she was 19 years old. This will be some arbitrary number such as "8" or "10." Don't ask me "8" or "10" of what; that question has baffled scientists for centuries. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1091The point, young people, is that there is a right way and a wrong way to prepare for your SATs, and unless you are even stupider than you look, you want to do it the right way. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1092The term "SAT" is a set of initials, or "antonym," standing for "Scholastic Attitude Treaty Organization."  This is a series of tests that predict your ability to perform in the college environment by measuring the degree to which you possess knowledge that nobody would ever in a million years actually need. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1093The SAT was developed by the prestigious Educational Testing Service, which is located in Princeton, N.J., home of Harvard University. The original idea behind the SATs, as stated in the E.T.S.'s Official Historical Statement of Goals and Purposes, was "to sell a huge quantity of No. 2 pencils that we ordered by mistake."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1094Experts suggest that if you don't know the answer on an SAT, you start by "weeding out" the answers that are obviously false. Some of the telltale signs to look for are: * The answer contains swear words. * The answer contains the phrase "according to a White House spokesperson."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1095Microsoft's No. 1 product is Windows, which now comes automatically installed on every computer in the world and many kitchen appliances. Technically, Windows is an "operating system," which means that it supplies your computer with the basic commands that it needs to suddenly, with no warning whatsoever, stop operating. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1096I also want Janet Reno to appoint somebody -- I'm thinking Kenneth Starr -- to look into the very real possibility that Windows is cheating at solitaire. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1097Members of the Class of 1997, as I stand before you to deliver your commencement address, I am reminded of a humorous story. Unfortunately, I can't tell it, because it's dirty. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1098Young people, you'll find that the things you learned in school will be vitally important to your success, provided that you are a contestant on Jeopardy. Otherwise they're useless. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1099And what is the Scientific Community doing about these problems, young people?  THEY'RE CLONING SHEEP. Great!  Just what we need!  Sheep that look MORE ALIKE than they already do!  Thanks a lot, Scientific Community!  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1100We live in troubled and uncertain times, but I am feeling good -- about myself; about my homeland; about all the nations of the earth; and, yes, about future of humanity. And I will tell you why: I am on painkillers. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1101I believe that we parents must encourage our children to become educated, so they can get into a good college that we cannot afford. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1102Last year, in history class, my son Rob studied The Sixties. That's right: The Sixties are now considered a historical period, just like the Roman Empire, except that as far as modern kids are concerned, The Sixties featured stupider haircuts. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1103My point is that I have never been a huge fan of Beowulf, or epic poems in general. "Epic," in my opinion, is a code word that English teachers use for "boring," the same way they use "satirical" when they mean "you will not laugh once."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1104Guys do not get enough credit for being domestic. This is because the people who give OUT the credits for being domestic are -- not to generalize or anything -- women. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1105Guys are sometimes accused of not having a domestic "flair" just because they tend to accessorize a room with used pizza boxes. But there are examples of guys coming up with decorative "touches" that Martha Stewart would never conceive of even with the aid of world-class narcotics. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1106So let's not say that guys are not domestic, OK?  When we see a guy who makes drapes by nailing trash bags over his windows, let's remember that he might have a legitimate domestic reason, such as that he ran out of duct tape. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1107Many people, responding to a column I wrote on the SAT tests, angrily objected to my statement that Princeton, N.J., is the home of Harvard University. Whoops!  Princeton is of course the home of Yale University. Harvard University, according to the directory of the American Society of Colleges and Universities, is a type of weevil. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1108Second, I received a letter from a woman who chastised me for stating, in a column about the Napa Valley, that "pinot noir" is French for "a type of wine."  This is totally incorrect: "pinot noir" is actually French for "not a type of wine."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1109But the point is that I am very sorry about these pesky errors that keep creeping into my column, and I am grateful to the many readers who, week after week, write angry letters correcting me. This is in no way whatsoever related to the topic of this week's column; namely: Is the public stupid?  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1110In closing, let me repeat that I am not saying that YOU are stupid. You, personally, are highly intelligent. How do I know this?  Because I'm psychic!  I also know that your name . . . wait a minute . . . it's coming to me . . . your name contains at least one vowel. Am I right? I knew it!  Pretty impressive, huh?  Send me some money. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1111Magnetism is one of the Six Fundamental Forces of the Universe, with the other five being Gravity, Duct Tape, Whining, Remote Control and The Force That Pulls Dogs Toward The Groins Of Strangers. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1112How are you, the Class of 1999, going to respond when the Clock-Radio of Challenge emits the Irritating Buzz of Opportunity?  Are you going to roll over and hit the Snooze Button of Complacency?  Or are you going to wake up and, after performing the Bodily Functions of Preparedness, boldly grasp the Toothbrush of Tomorrow?  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1113I hope you are ready to take over, Class of '99, because my generation is getting old and tired. And we have good reason to be tired: We won World War II. No, wait, that was our parents. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1114Thanks to the Internet, all you have to do is type in the words "population of Rhode Island" into your computer, and a moment later the number appears on your computer screen: 467,298. This is not the population of Rhode Island, of course: This is the number of Web sites that contain the words "population," "Rhode," "Island" or "of."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1115Men tend to attach great significance to Manhood. This results in certain characteristically masculine, by which I mean stupid, behavioral patterns that can produce unfortunate results such as violent crime, war, spitting and ice hockey. These things have given males a bad name (specifically, "asshole"). <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1116I realize that I'm making gender-based generalizations here, but my feeling is that if God did not want us to make gender-based generalizations, She would not have given us genders. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1117I'm not saying guys are scum. I'm saying that many guys who consider themselves to be committed to their marriages will stray if they are confronted with overwhelming temptation, defined as "virtually any temptation."  Okay, so maybe I AM saying guys are scum. But they're not MEAN-SPIRITED scum. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1118Sitting around for no reason in the guise of being engaged in productive work was the first real guy contribution to human civilization, forming the underlying basis for many modern institutions and activities such as fishing, sales confrences, highway repair, the federal government, and "Customer Service."  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1119The most significant achievement of ancient Egyptian guys occurred at the funeral of the great Pharaoh Amentooten III, when some guys invented the famous "Substitute Mummy Filled with Live Weasels" prank. This lead to the collapse of the Egyptian empire, but everybody involved agreed it was worth it. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1120The Middle Ages saw the breakdown of civilization in Western Europe - a severe decline in cultural values and standards; a rapid descent into chaos and near-barbarism. So it was a pretty good time for guys. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1121The Renaissance saw the rebirth of interest in philosophy, science, and the arts, and above all the rise of humanism - a philosophy centered on the distinctive needs, interests and ideals of... not deities, but PEOPLE. Guys were in favor of this because it resulted in statues of naked women. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1122To understand guys, it is essential to remember that, deep down inside, they are biological creatures, like jellyfish or trees, only less likely to clean the bathroom. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1123I'm not saying that women don't think about sex also. I'm saying that women are capable, for at least brief periods of time, of NOT thinking about sex, and that most guys are not. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1124I want to stress here that I am NOT saying that guys are stupid. I am saying that, because of subtle and extremely complex biochmical reactions taking place in their bodies, guys ACT stupid. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1125Your basic guy dog firmly believes that if he pees on enough territory, he will be declared Dominant Male Dog of the Entire Earth. This is basically the same instince that determines the U.S. foreign policy, except that instead of peeing on foreign countries, we give them money or drop bombs on them, sometimes simultaneously. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1126We see that testosterone can lead to some very destructive forms of male behavior, the two worst being: (1) War (2) Do-it-yourself projects. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1127It's hard to avoid falling into the stereotype-toy trap. When my son, Rob, was born, my philosophy was that he should have only politically correct, environmentally sound, gender-neutral toys, such as a spinning top carved out of nonendangered wood or recycled tofu. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1128Toys marketed for boys tend to encourage the boys' already aggressive nature, which could be why boys spend so much time acting like what trained professional psychologists call "jerks."  Or it could be that boys are born with some kind of jerk gene, and the toy people are merely cashing in on this. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1129Contrary to what many women believe, it's fairly easy to develop a long-term, stable, intimate, and mutually fulfilling relationship with a guy. Of course, this guy has to be a Labrador retriever. With human guys, it's extremely difficult. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1130A lot of women have concluded that the problem is that guys, as a group, have the emotional maturity of a hamster. No, this is not the case. A hamster is much more capable of making a lasting commitment to a woman, especially if she gives it those little food pellets. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1131Guys are born with a fundamental, genetically transmitted mental condition known to psychologists as: The Fear That If You Get Attatched to a Woman, Some Unattached Guy, Somewhere, Will Be Having More Fun Than You. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1132Guys are extremely reluctant to make commitments, or even to take steps that might LEAD to commitments. That is why, when a guy goes out on a date with a woman and finds himself really liking her, he will often demonstrate his affection by avoiding her for the rest of his life. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1133Consider the behaviour of guy dogs, who spend their lives in a ceaseless quest to establish their masculine dominance by peeing on everything in the entire world. Scientists believe that the reason dogs howl at the moon is because they (the dogs) (also some of the scientists) are upset that the can't get up there and pee on it. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1134Guys care about sport teams. I'm not talking about simply roting; I'm talking about a RELATIONSHIP that guys develop, a COMMITMENT to a sports team that guys take way more seriously than, say, wedding vows. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1135You may feel that there is something twisted about the values of a guy who can be more committed to a bunch of transient athletes than he is to his own wife. But you have to consider the larger picture, from the guy's point of view: His wife may be a warm, loving, and loyal person, but THERE IS NO WAY SHE WILL EVER MAKE THE PLAY-OFFS. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1136You should understand that, as a longtime 76ers fan, I hated the Celtics. Not in the way I hate, for example, Hitler, but more often. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1137I read an article once stating that down in Central America, they take sports a little too seriously in the sense that they routinely kill each other over soccer. (For the record, I think this is over reacting, unless of course once again we are talking about the play-offs.)  <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1138The guy mind doesn't believe in medical care. Guys will generally not seek medical treatment, for themselves or for others, except in clear-cut situations, such as decapitation. And even then, guys are not going to be 100 percent certain. "Let's put his head back on with duct tape and see if he can play a few more innings," is the prevailing guy attitude. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1139My feeling is that if more guys would join mellow, purposeless, and semi-dysfunctional organizations such as the Lawn Rangers, then there would be a lot fewer guys getting involved in aggressive, venal, destructive, and frequently criminal organizations such as the U.S. Congress. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1140Guy Memory Lapses stem from the fact that guys devote so much of their brain to remembering vital facts such as who was named MVP of the 1978 Super Bowl that they cannot always remember minor details, such as that they have left an infant on the roof of the car. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1141DNA molecules (DNA stands for "DinohydroNuclearsomethingsofAmerica") contain strings of small electrons called "genes" that provide, in secret code (to prevent other species, such as raccoons, from stealing it), all the information required to make you an individual person, such as hair color, shoe size, and social security number. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1142I have been married, on and off, since 1969, and I STILL do not grasp the point of making the bed. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1143I will admit that most guys do not do any more laundry than they absolutely have to. A single-sock load would not be out of the question, for a guy. A guy might well choose to wash ONLY THE REALLY DIRTY PART of the sock. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1144Let me stress for the benefit of any impressionable young readers out there that marijuana is very, very bad. Medical research has shown that people who use marijuana are more than EIGHT TIMES as likely as non-users to eat raw cookie dough. And the figures are even more frightening for pepperoni. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1145My point is that guys are not merely shallow, childish, irresponsible, unreliable, slovenly, sports-crazed, sex-obsessed, crotch-scratching boors. They ARE all these things, but they are not MERELY these things. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1146Guys are capable of achievements that a nonguy cannot imagine without the aid of strong prescription drugs. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1147No matter what NASA would have us believe, the purpose of the space program is NOT to benefit the human race by advancing the frontiers of human knowledge. We humans do not need to leave Earth to get to go to a hostile, deadly, alien environment; we already have Miami. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1148Let's face it, the human race needs guys because of the numerous contributions that guys make to society - positive contributions, vital contributions, contributions that are in no way diminished by the fact that I can't, offhand, think of what they are. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1149I am darned proud of my script for "Titanic II."  I have been working on it, without sleeping or eating, except for two grilled-cheese sandwiches, for the better part of the last 35 minutes. I realize that sounds like a lot of work, but bear in mind that writer/director James Cameron spent nearly twice that long on the script for the original movie. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1150The movie "Titanic" garnered a record 56 Academy Awards, including Best Major Motion Picture Lasting Longer Than Both O.J. Trials Combined; Most Total Water; Most Realistic Scene Of Bodies Falling Off The End Of A Sinking Ship And Landing On Big Ship Parts With A Dull Clonking Sound; and Most Academy Awards Garnered. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1151Have you ever noticed that anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anybody going faster than you is a maniac?  <BR>	-- George Carlin
1152RARE (5-10 minutes): The outside is burnt and welded to the grill; the inside is pink and swirling with cow and pig disease germs. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1153MEDIUM (5-10 minutes): The outside and part of the inside are burnt; many of the disease germs, particularly the elderly and pregnant ones, are dying slow, painful deaths. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1154WELL DONE (5-10 minutes): Both the outside and the inside are completely burnt; almost all the disease germs are dead, and the few remaining ones are making elaborate plans for revenge. <BR>	-- Dave Barry
1155Sometimes in politics the moral high ground can only be reached by wading through the lowlands of public amnesia. <BR>	-- Scott Burchill, SMH, 17th Dec 2003
1156The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.
1157It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.
1158Sex is like air. It's not important unless you aren't getting any.
1159No one is listening until you make a mistake.
1160Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.
1161Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
1162It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
1163It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.
1164If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
1165If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
1166Don't squat with your spurs on.
1167If you drink, don't park; accidents cause people.
1168Some days you are the bug, some days you are the windshield.
1169Don't worry, it only seems kinky the first time.
1170Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
1171The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.
1172Timing has an awful lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
1173Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side & a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
1174There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.
1175Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your mouth is moving.
1176Never miss a good chance to shut up.
1177We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.
1178There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence. <BR>	-- Jeremy S. Anderson
1179UNIX is an operating system, OS/2 is half an operating system, Windows is a shell, and DOS is a boot partition virus. <BR>	-- Peter H. Coffin
1180I heard someone tried the monkeys-on-typewriters bit trying for the plays of W. Shakespeare, but all they got was the collected works of Francis Bacon. <BR>	-- Bill Hirst
1181It is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies. <BR>	-- Mark Twain, on the Bible in "Letters from the Earth"
1182The two Testaments are interesting, each in its own way. The Old one gives us a picture of these people's Deity as he was before he got religion, the other one gives us a picture of him as he appeared afterward. <BR>	-- Mark Twain, on the Bible in "Letters from the Earth"
1183When one reads Bibles, one is less surprised at what the Deity knows than at what He doesn't know. <BR>	-- Mark Twain's Notebook
1184Therefore the Church, after eight hundred years, gathered up its halters, thumb-screws, and firebrands, and set about its holy work in earnest. She worked hard at it night and day during nine centuries and imprisoned, tortured, hanged, and burned whole hordes and armies of witches, and washed the Christian world clean with their foul blood. Then it was discovered that there was no such thing as witches, and never had been. <BR>	-- Mark Twain's Notebook
1185The Christian's Bible is a drug store. Its contents remain the same; but the medical practice changes... <BR>	-- Mark Twain "Bible Teaching and Religious Practice"
1186This (preparing my tax return) is too difficult for a mathematician. It takes a philosopher. <BR>	-- Albert Einstein (well, Hammer, on Rennlist, said so)
1187Taxation WITH representation isn't so hot, either!  <BR>	-- Hammer, on Rennlist
1188As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches, and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough... <BR>	-- About the Internet and nuclear war.
1189The absent are always in the wrong. <BR>	-- Philippe Destouches (1680-1754), French playwright
1190Advice is like castor oil, easy enough to give but dreadful uneasy to take. <BR>	-- Josh Billings (1818-1885), U.S. humorist
1191Advice is like kissing: It costs nothing and it's a pleasant thing to do. <BR>	-- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950), British playwright
1192Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't. <BR>	-- Erica Jong (1942-), U.S. writer & poet
1193Be yourself is about the worst advice you can give to some people. <BR>	-- Thomas L. Masson (1866-1934), writer
1194Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example. <BR>	-- Louis La Rochefoucauld (1777-1815)
1195I give myself sometimes admirable advice, but I am incapable of taking it. <BR>	-- Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (1689-1762), English poet
1196If I had been present at creation, I would have given some helpful hints. <BR>	-- Alfonso the Wise (1221-1284), Spanish king
1197No vice is so bad as advice. <BR>	-- Marie Dressler, (1869-1934). U.S. actress
1198Please give me some good advice in your next letter. I promise not to follow it. <BR>	-- Edna St. Vincent Millay, Letters, 1952.
1199The trouble with giving advice is that others want to return the favor. <BR>	-- Sam Ewing, (1921--), U.S. humorist
1200The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself. <BR>	-- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900).
1201There is hardly a man on earth who will take advice unless he is certain that it is positively bad. <BR>	-- Edward Dahlberg (1900-1977), U.S. author
1202When we ask advice, we are usually looking for an accomplice. <BR>	-- Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1796-1876), French mathematician
1203You simply MUST stop taking advice from other people. <BR>	-- Melissa Timberman
1204A large, clumsy umbrella is the best protection against the rain: there will be no rain as long as you're lugging it around. <BR>	-- Peter Wastholm, (1970--)
1205Abstain from beans. <BR>	-- Plutarch (46-120), Greek priest and writer
1206Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use. <BR>	-- Wendell Johnson (1906-1965), U.S. speech pathologist
1207Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home. <BR>	-- Phyllis Diller, (1917-- ), U.S. comedienne
1208Always be nice to those younger than you, because they are the ones who will be writing about you. <BR>	-- Cyril Connolly (1903-1975), English critic/editor
1209Always do right; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest. <BR>	-- Mark Twain (1835-1910)
1210Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. <BR>	-- Ernest Hemingway, (1899-1961), U.S. novelist
1211Always go to the bathroom when you have a chance. <BR>	-- King George V of Great Britain, (1865-1936)
1212Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful. Avoid running at all times. Don't look back. Someone might be gaining on you. <BR>	-- Leroy "Satchel" Paige, Collier's, (13 June 1953)
1213Be good and you will be lonely. <BR>	-- Mark Twain (1835-1910)
1214Be grateful for luck. Pay the thunder no mind -- listen to the birds. And don't hate nobody. <BR>	-- Eubie Blake, (1883-1983), U.S. musician
1215Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead. <BR>	-- Scottish Proverb

2551Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death...

2554Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man.

2568This is one of those views which are so absolutely absurd that only very learned men could possibly adopt them. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

2572What the world needs is not dogma but an attitude of scientific inquiry combined with a belief that the torture of millions is not desirable, whether inflicted by Stalin or by a Deity imagined in the likeness of the believer. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
2573Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
2574When one admits that nothing is certain one must, I think, also admit that some things are much more nearly certain than others. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
2575When one admits that nothing is certain one must, I think, also admit that some things are much more nearly certain than others. It is much more nearly certain that we are assembled here tonight than it is that this or that political party is in the right. Certainly there are degrees of certainty, and one should be very careful to emphasize that fact, because otherwise one is landed in an utter skepticism, and complete skepticism would, of course, be totally barren and completely useless. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
2576Men who are unhappy, like men who sleep badly, are always proud of the fact. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

2580One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

2582To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
2583The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible. <BR>	-- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

2685All [zoos] actually offer to the public in return for the taxes spent upon them is a form of idle and witless amusement, compared to which a visit to a penitentiary, or even to a State legislature in session, is informing, stimulating and ennobling. <BR>	-- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)

2703Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. <BR>	-- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
2704Man is never honestly the fatalist, nor even the stoic. He fights his fate, often desperately. He is forever entering bold exceptions to the rulings of the bench of gods.

2720The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. <BR>	-- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
2721The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth--that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort.

2841You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness.

We did all that could be done. <BR>	-- Ronald Reagan (1911 - 2004), 40th president of USA

2854Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual. <BR>	-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), third US President

2873Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies. <BR>	-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), third US President

2883Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself. <BR>	-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), third US President
2884Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one. <BR>	-- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), third US President
2885Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion.

2912If only God would give me some clear sign! Like making a large deposit in my name in a Swiss bank. <BR>	-- Woody Allen (1935 - )

2964So they [the Government] go on in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2965It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

2967I am reminded of the professor who, in his declining hours, was asked by his devoted pupils for his final counsel. He replied, 'Verify your quotations.'  <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2968I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma: but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2969Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt... We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire. Neither the sudden shock of battle nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools and we will finish the job. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

2974Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2975We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2976A love of tradition has never weakened a nation, indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril; but the new view must come, the world must roll forward. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
2977Never give in -- never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. <BR>	-- Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

2985I'm not a real movie star. I've still got the same wife I started out with twenty-eight years ago. <BR>	-- Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)
2986Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip. <BR>	-- Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)
2987Nothing you can't spell will ever work. <BR>	-- Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)

3548I note that Bill Gates of Microsoft has paid an extraordinarily large sum for Leonardo da Vinci's Codex.

Compare, say, with Linux -- how many defects we have, how quickly we fix those defects, how our system is for getting the updates out for those defects. Take those objective criteria and we are better. <BR>	-- Bill Gates
3555So it is that Microsoft, by refusing to secure almost half of its installed desktop base, is trying to force ... customers to upgrade to XP. I guess since Microsoft can no longer offer the carrot of Longhorn, it's now using the whip of poor security. <BR>	-- Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols

He will know he is in need of repair when his wheel falls off. But the hypochondriac is like a wheelbarrow designed by Microsoft. He has constant two-way communication between his body and himself. He is trying to perform ordinary tasks, such as lumbering up a hill with a load of fertilizer, when suddenly an icon flashes to tell him that rust has been detected on the starboard cotter pin. <BR>	-- Gene Weingarten
3563There never was a chip, it is said, that Bill Gates couldn't slow down with a new batch of features. <BR>	-- James Coates
3564The WWW is exciting because Microsoft doesn't own it, and therefore, there's a tremendous amount of innovation happening. <BR>	-- Steve Jobs
3565This summer Microsoft is going to introduce the first portable toilet with Internet access. You know why it's the first? Because nobody wants a toilet with Internet access. What is that? Is that really the future? Remember, we thought it would be flying cars, now it's an outhouse you can plug in. <BR>	-- Jay Leno
3566Too many "innovators", especially in the U.S., are resting on their laurels collecting government monopoly profits. At least Microsoft got their monopolies with good old-fashioned misleading marketing, channel strong-arm tactics, and predatory pricing. They worked for it!  <BR>	-- Geoff Parker

3577Let's face facts: J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" books are responsible for more loser circle jerks than Playboy, "Baywatch" and Linux combined. As most people know, the series was the inspiration for the game Dungeons and Dragons, which inspired misfits worldwide to walk around with little felt bags of twenty-sided dice, discussing their imaginary lives as ax-wielding dwarves to anybody who would listen. <BR>	-- Mr. Cranky
3578Unix? You can get a less powerful system, but it will cost you more.
3579Making files is easy under the UNIX operating system. Therefore, users tend to create numerous files using large amounts of file space. It has been said that the only standard thing about all UNIX systems is the message-of-the-day telling users to clean up their files. <BR>	-- System V.2 administrator's guide
3580Sigh. I like to think it's just the Linux people who want to be on the "leading edge" so bad they walk right off the precipice. <BR>	-- Craig E. Groeschel

3582The number of Unix installations has grown to 10, with more expected. <BR>	-- The Unix Programmer's Manual, 2nd Edition, June 1972
