The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''

This is incredible, is it not? I do believe this shall be some sort of record-breaking feat! Everyone shows affection for a flexible weighted spring toy, you must aquire a flexible weighted spring toy, spring toy, spring toy, maneuver, spring toy, maneuver!

Human tails? Humans do not possess tails. They possess large posteriors... on which they wear rather offensive trousers... and walk about, exclaiming, "Salutations, Helen!"

I can't do better than a line from an Edinburgh Fringe play I saw years ago called "The Adventures of Stoke Mandeville, Astronaut and Gentleman":

"We're seven million leagues from Earth, we've got a full coal-scuttle, it's dark, and we're smoking pipes!"

Your Majesty, we can not allow to be outnumbered on our quantity of shelters!"



heh.  after reading a bunch of quotes from Dr. STrangelove (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057012/quotes) , far too many of them are steampunk without even being changed.  I guess the madness goes well with both.

"President Merkin Muffley: How is it possible for this thing to be triggered automatically and at the same time impossible to untrigger?
Dr. Strangelove: Mr. President, it is not only possible, it is essential. That is the whole idea of this machine, you know. Deterrence is the art of producing in the mind of the enemy... the FEAR to attack. And so, because of the automated and irrevocable decision-making process which rules out human meddling, the Doomsday machine is terrifying and simple to understand... and completely credible and convincing.

Oh. I beg your pardon Ma'am. I've never heard the nickname, and this being the internet I figure it's usually safe to guess someone is male. I'd never want to insult somebody's femaleness or manlyness on propose.

Agreed. But steampunk or not, is an amazing film. I also feel that this Citizen Kane quote has some Steampunk-ish atmosphere:

"Legendary was Xanadu where Kubla Khan decreed his stately pleasure dome. Today, almost as legendary is Florida's Xanadu, world's largest private pleasure ground. Here, on the deserts of the Gulf Coast, a private mountain was commissioned and successfully built. One hundred thousand trees, twenty thousand tons of marble are the ingredients of Xanadu's mountain. Contents of Xanadu's palace: paintings, pictures, statues, the very stones of many another palace - a collection of everything so big it can never be catalogued or appraised, enough for ten museums - the loot of the world. Xanadu's livestock: the fowl of the air, the fish of the sea, the beast of the field and jungle. Two of each, the biggest private zoo since Noah. Like the pharaohs, Xanadu's landlord leaves many stones to mark his grave. Since the pyramids, Xanadu is the costliest monument a man has built to himself. Here in Xanadu last week, Xanadu's landlord was laid to rest, a potent figure of our century, America's Kubla Khan - Charles Foster Kane. [...] Alone in his never-finished, already decaying pleasure palace, aloof, seldom visited, never photographed, an emperor of new strength continued to direct his failing empire, varyingly attempted to sway as he once did the destinies of a nation that had ceased to listen to him, ceased to trust him. Then last week, as it must to all men, death came to Charles Foster Kane. "

Don't worry yourself. I just wanted to clear that up to avoid confusion. But yes, I have been mistaken for a male before- most people seem rather ambiguous when they do not have a gender-defining name.

Or an avatar that hints. I find avatars can have a big influence on how I perceive someone over the internet. It gets kinda surreal when you find yourself conversing with a Civil war general, an anthropomorphic fox, and a talking Lima bean.

It is by absinthe alone I set my mind in motion,
it is by the extract of wormwood that thoughts aquire color
the lips aquire babbling
the babbling becomes a warning
it is by absinthe alone I set my mind in motion

Not a movie line persay, but what I think is a fitting quote from one the the more famous, or even infamous, studio heads of all time.

"Uh-uh. I know what you're thinking. Did he discharge 6 chambers, or was it only 5? Well, I rather forgot myself, what with all this excitement and all. But seeing that this is a .45 Civiliser, the most powerful hand-cannon in the Empire, and will blow your goggles clean off, you ought to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky?

"Well, do you... steampunk?"
I about cried at the sheer awesomeness of this quote.

Him - "I suggest we beat a hasty retreat, and let the records show this as a draw. Agreed? Why are we even discussing this matter"
Her - "My preference would be to decamp to a safe distance and destroy the site using a Thermobaric charge. That will guarantee our success"
Him - "Goodness, I like your plan better!"

"I'm well equipped for any eventually, as you can see. I am the pinnacle of martial prowess, you would definitely not want to interfere with me in any way........"

"Take a look at these, if you would! Separately dischargeable Tesla Beam clusters. Zzzzzap! One could incinerate half of London with that particular item, should the want arise! We also have Difference-Engine-powered mortars, cyclic Aetheric Bolt rifles, Prussian hand grenades, we have devices that could sterilise a man through sound alone! We also have thermobaric charges, large bayonets and .......sharp..... sticks"
