Da Homey Express


Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.
~Kurt Vonnegut, Hocus Pocus

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.

Side Note: Reader you may notice that I CAPITALIZE words like To, And, At, On, and The. As a technical writer (my chosen pigeonhole, over scrutinized, tortuous, I don't wanna do it anymore profession...fer serious I don't wanna) I am discouraged from doing such things. It's just the way it is...but I ask why are those not capitalized? They're words aren't they? They're no less important than any other word in my opinion, they all carry the same weight, and it is no light load. Words like fuck, booby, shit, and the like are not dirty words. There are nooooo dirty words, just words. If you're scared of them...don't use them. Do I know proper grammar usage, I do. Do I use it 100% of the time, hell no. When I took grammar and writing classes in college along with my diploma I got a secondary degree that confirms the fact that I know proper usage of the English language. This certificate also states that due to my mastery of the language I also have a license to use the language however the fuck I want whenever I want, as long as I communicate my meaning clearly. Word?

Teddy Never Wins....Boooooooo Part 2


They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions... but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
~ Atticus Finch (Harper Lee
, To Kill a Mockingbird)

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
~James Madison

We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.

Out of compassion I destroy the darkness of their ignorance. From within them I light the lamp of wisdom and dispel all darkness from their lives.
~Bhagavad Gita

It is not known precisely where angels dwell -- whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God's pleasure that we should be informed of their abode
