  1. Huxley/Camus/Celine grab-bag:

     

    Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself, to multiply the ways in which he exists, to make his life full, significant and interesting.

    -Aldous Huxley.

    Abstract Art: A product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.

    -Albert Camus.

    A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.

    -Huxley.

    Truth is a pain which will not stop. And the truth of this world is to die. You must choose: either dying or lying. Personally, I have never been able to kill myself.

    -Louis-Ferdinand Celine.

     

    Don't believe your friends when they ask you to be honest with them. All they really want is to be maintained in the good opinion they have of themselves.

    -Camus.

     

    Children are remarkable for their intelligence and ardor, for their curiosity, their intolerance of shams, the clarity and ruthlessness of their vision.

    -Huxley.

    The poetry of heroism appeals irresistibly to those who don't go to a war, and even more to those whom the war is making enormously wealthy. It's always so.

    -Celine.

    A fanatic is a man who consciously over compensates a secret doubt.

    -Huxley.

     

    The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth.

    -Camus.

    At 30 a man should know himself like the palm of his hand, know the exact number of his defects and qualities, know how far he can go, foretell his failures - be what he is. And, above all, accept these things.

    -Camus.

     

    The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.

    -Camus.

     

    All gods are homemade, and it is we who pull their strings, and so, give them the power to pull ours.

    -Huxley.

     

    The modern mind is in complete disarray. Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world nor our intelligence can find any foot-hold. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism.

    -Camus.

    Beauty is worse than wine, it intoxicates both the holder and beholder.

    -Huxley.

     

    Those who lack the courage will always find a philosophy to justify it.

    -Camus.

  2. To prevent a hangover, drink as much water as you did alcohol before passing the fuck out.

     

    At least that's what every professor/science teacher I've ever had has told me.

  3. Re: I just rented pan's labyrinth

     

    I liked the fact that it was more violent than I thought it would be. And that they had a fucking monster with eyes in his hands that ate children and shit. I guess I don't have very good taste in movies, because all of that shit combined made it awesome for me.

  4. Re: I want to see you, yet again

     

    You know, Trance4Mationz seems to be committing pretty much every 12oz "uncool" crime under the sun without exception, yet he's being a champ about the clowning. Anybody else would have started bitching and retaliating and would probably be banned by now for unbelievable homoness. Dude's OK with me.

     

     

    You know, it's almost like true douchebaggery is, like, a matter of...

     

     

    ...conduct?

  5. I've been both for prolonged periods of time, and I think I've found a nice balance between veg and meat-eater.

     

     

    Lately (for the past 8+ months) I've been on this 'I just don't like cheap meat' kick.

     

    It's not that I don't like meat, or that I view eating it as some sort of philosophical debbacle that needs careful consideration, it's that I can't afford to eat the meat I like on a regular basis.

     

    So I eat two or three nice cuts of steak every month, and that's as much red meat as I'll eat.

     

     

     

     

     

    *I'm also HEAVILY active for 2-5 hours per day (skating, lifting, odd landscaping jobs), and I rarely get fatigued - so anyone who says you need a constant intake of the red stuff to feel healthy is on some nonsense.
