"Is that your face or did your neck throw up"

local insult as a teen
i used to love insulting folks who had just made fun of me [one]. they can get really over the top

sort of along the lines of

"your mum is such a fat arse, when she backs up, she makes a beeping sound"
followed by,
"sorry mate, i wont do that again, that was a dirty crack...whoops there i go again talking about your mum...this time i wont do it for real, okay? i can see why you'd be upset, your mum's a real nice woman, she'd give the hair off her back to help any man in need. what did i say to upset you so. don't go away mad, just go away. i want to remember you just like you are--leaving. seriously though, fook off."

all used, borrowed, etc...can't remember the origins, but on occasion the usage Embarassed Very Happy

i still remember my own personal trigger for these tidbits, my name growing up was 'Rusty', and i'd play fair with other peoples names, etc, until they made a jab at mine...then it was a mad dash for whatever achilles heel i thought the person possessed. one guy who made fun of my name had the name
"Precious". true story. i wont bother with the retorts, they're just too obvious. i don't know but i think he thought he was a player [ladies man] or something. okay, not that i'm rambling, i will henceforth cut myself off. last call. i'm done drunken Sleep


nope, can't do it. my opener for precious was,
"what's your last name...'pants-down-by-your-ankles'? you mean your parent named you precious?"
sadly, i was actually an adult when this one-sided conversation took place Embarassed

"There are no atheists in foxholes" - WW1 origins

Personally (for me) self preservation is an ugly creature rarely seen but no less ugly for that..



I love some of Benjamin Franklin's quotes:

Quote :
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.(1775)

Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power. (1738)

There never was a good war or a bad peace.(1783)

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.(1789)

Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure--and in some cases I have--that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy." Col. Cooper

Quote:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."


Theodor Roosevelt

"Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910.

okay, Bruce Lee quotes can be pretty good, here are a few:
fav's in highlight

"I hope martial artists are more interested in the root of martial arts and not the different decorative branches, flowers or leaves."


"If I tell you I'm good, you would probably think I'm boasting. If I tell you I'm no good, you know I'm lying."


"If there is a God, he is within. You don't ask God to give you things, you depend on God for your inner theme."


"If you don't want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today."



"If you make an ass out of yourself, there will always be someone to ride you."


"If you think a thing is impossible, you'll make it impossible."


"If you want to do your duty properly, you should do just a little more than that."


"If you want to learn to swim, jump into the water. On dry land, no frame of mind is ever going to help you."

"In combat, spontaneity rules; rote performance of technique perishes."


"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."


"It's not what you give, it's the way you give it."


"Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them."


"Out of chaos, find simplicity, From discord, find harmony."


"Real living is living for others."


"Showing off is the fool's idea of glory."


"The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be."


"The mind is like a fertile garden in which anything that is planted, flowers or weeds, will grow."


"There are lots of guys around the world that are lazy. They have big fat guts. They talk about chi power and things they can do, but don't believe it."


"Use only that which works, and take it from any place you find it."

Hey, what a coincidence. The google page says Cookie is 40 today, and he was eating the page. I think we should hear him sing a song!
