Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Was He Saying Something?

I was thinking last night (dangerous, I know), and I realized I hadn't mentioned my fangirl crush in a long while. Ohmuhgoodness! Mike Rowe!! Mike Rowe!! Mike Rowe!! Whew...that's better.

There are these things called "Ted Talks". I can't explain 'em as well as the website can, but I can say they're awesome. And Mike Rowe did one! Squeee!

Ahem.

It's all about...erm...ah...hmm...I have no idea. Every time I start to watch it, I get distracted watching Mike (I can call him Mike, right? I mean..."Mr. Rowe" seems so formal, and we have something special...don't we??). So I guess you'll have to watch for yourself.

For your viewing pleasure:






And here's a link in case you want to see some of the other talks...although...they don't involve Mike Rowe, so why would you??

I'm gonna take you to task for that comment, Kerri - have you SEEN this Ted Talks video of Mr. Rowe (we're not on a first name basis yet)? I only LISTENED to it and totally got what Ms. Kyddryn had been going on about in regards to Mr. Rowe's inimitable charm!
