It's true, the 4th Earl of Sandwich was a politician.

This sign is my favorite. It's in Carefree about a 45 minutes from where I live. The difference between our 2 towns is that only very rich people can afford to buy a house there. They even have their own small plane landing strip.

Reading philosophy at Cambridge is no guarantee of a sound head or even smarts.

I’ve been carefree all my life. I have even been through Carefree, AZ. I didn’t even stop.

Don't think carefree defines me. Car free does.

Brixton Prison
10 May, 1918

To the Chairman of the Visiting Committee

Sir,

I am applying to you, as Chairman of the Visiting Committee, for the permission, which I understand is usually accorded to prisoners in the first Division, to receive visits and write and receive letters oftener than once a fortnight. In particular, I wish as soon as possible to see Professor Wildon Carr, President of the Aristotelian Society, 107 Church Street, Chelsea, S.W.3, and Dr. A.N. Whitehead, F.R.S., 97 Coleherne Court, S.W.5. Both of these it is important to me to see in connection with my philosophical work. I venture to hope that you will also sanction greater frequency of letters and visits in general than once a fortnight.

Yours faithfully
Bertrand Russell.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

I felt inspired to write fiction by Howard there. I guess I was chanelling the desire of Carefree residents to escape what I don't know it is really like there. Actually mainly that of the bored housewives. Female leading cast for the feminists. Their husbands mainly away. Where though. And doing what. That can be random. They're unimportant bread winners. Funny. Drug smuggle by plane action sequence. It's a movie script. The next protagonist is Howard. His name doesn't have to be Howard. He just needs to be a jew from a poorer neighbouring town. He's a stalker. Pervert. Or is he stalking because he just wants a higher status. Doesn't seem to be too important. That's what you think. Most important character in the end. The human condition ridiculed. A fatwah will be issued on all the characters, in real life.

I'm wondering if I should replace ****-it with What-the-Hell.

It could be worse; you could be stuck in Afghanistan or even worse the East End of London.

The appeal of the first two was of course Wilder's seemingly unstoppable abilty to part people with consciousness if a shot lands anywhere about the head.

This third fight, I suppose had to happen..I wasn't anywhere near as excited for it as i was the second. It brought joy to millions of people's lives, and in way unparalleled by other sports in many people's opinion. Brutal it is and morals sometimes questioned. But the show must go on.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

**** it. I'm sticking with ****-it and **** it if they don't like it. However, I've upgraded the adequacy of to-hell-with-it and what-the-hell for certain situations. I like forget-about-it but use it sparingly. I don't want to sound like a want-to-be wise guy.
