                    I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

                        Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

                          The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

                                Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.
