  • A history teacher at my school:

    “If trees had horses, they would be single”

    No one has yet figured out what he ment.



  • no yanny, its even more obscure than that:

    “if trees had horses, would be single”

    no they

    popular legend had it that he told only graduating seniors, but no one from our class could confirm this, because he retired before we graduated. ive heard from other sources (namely, tireman) that it in fact means nothing, and was specifically used to get students to think (and partly as a joke).



  • All these quotes come from sailor buddies of mine:

    “She’s dumb as a fkin’ rock, but hey, I’d fk a rock that looked like that.”

    “The minimum wouldn’t be the minimum if it wasn’t good enough.”

    “I don’t wanna blow my own horn here, but I’m the mother-f**ckin’ man!”



  • Got a new one.

    “Don’t speak to us of laws, we carry swords!”~Plutarch



  • “Soldiers are murderers”

    “when i hear the word culture i reach for my revolver”



  • Jimmy Buffet’s song Fruitcakes:

    Where’s the church, who took the steeple
    Religion is in the hands of some crazy-ass people
    Television preachers with bad hair and dimples
    The god’s honest truth is it’s not that simple
    It’s the buddhist in you, it’s the pagan in me
    It’s the muslim in him, she’s catholic ain’t she?
    It’s the born again look it’s the wasp and the jew
    Tell me what’s goin on, I ain’t gotta clue

    Modern day epicurian!

    Today is the day when General Tony McAuliffe announced to the German commander: Nuts! during the battle of the bulge as his reply to surrender terms for Bastogne.



  • I wonder what the german commander said when he got that reply?! :lol:



  • “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.  The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is far worse.  The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
    John Stewart Mill



  • Its not a tumor.



  • On government

    “All I think is that it’s stupid”
        Dave Barry



  • Another sailor buddy of mine:

    “I f**kin’ hate Green Day.  I think Green Day, Blink 182, and Sum 41 should all be duck taped together and shot into the sun.”

    :lol: I laughed my a** off the first time I heard that one!  :lol:



  • dude, that is awesome!!!



  • “The greatest argument against Democracy is five minutes with the average voter. Democracy is the worst system of government, except all of the others”

    • Winston Churchill (courtesy of The West Wing)


  • @Yanny:

    “The greatest argument against Democracy is five minutes with the average voter. Democracy is the worst system of government, except all of the others”

    Add to that

    “A person is smart, people are dumb”  from Men in Black

    or my father’s version…
    “The masses are asses”



  • Yanny, at least part of that line you attributed to Churchill was original to Will Rogers; to quote from him, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for every other.” Don’t know about the first part…



  • I’m getting my information from the TV show The West Wing, so I can’t vouch for it independently.



  • @Yanny:

    I’m getting my information from the TV show The West Wing

    That was your first mistake 😛



  • im sure the show is far from the truth, but it is amusing, but everytime i see that show i see apocolipse now, its weird.
    which brings me to my next favorte qoute

    “Saigon, sh*t, im still only in Saigon!”



  • Major K- that’s from Apocalypse Now.

    One of my favorites:

    “If the General won’t lead the Army perhaps he would allow me to BORROW it…”

    and:

    “… I almost feel as if I could make myself dicatator if that would please me but it would not
    -admirable self denial!!!”
