That's actually pretty good :naughty:. It's not what I had in mind though...

1. How can nothing be certain when you know everything is possible?

2. If everything were possible, then knowing the uncertain would be possible. Meaning everything would be certain. Yet at the same time everything could be uncertain :rolleyes:... Hey, everything's possible :friday:

The best things in life aren't things.
- Art Buchwald

If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.

Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.
- Robert Schuller

In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
- Theodore Roosevelt

You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you've collected a lot of empty yesterdays.

The money I make belongs to me and my family, not to a government stooge who takes a cut and dumps the rest on slum bunnies for squirting out babies. Rather than foster brilliance, we allocate for its suppression. Homeland Severity? War on Drugs? War on Poverty? BATF? Iraq? Project Head Start? HUD? Night Basketball? NASA? Washington can burn in Hell on its own nickel.

Paying $(US)5-10 for Firefox is OK with me. Somebody must pay for the servers. Anything that competently spits in Microsoft's face has my support.
