"Perhaps I'm old and tired," he continued, "but I always think that the chances of finding out what really is going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say hang the sense of it and just keep yourself occupied.. I'd far rather be happy than right any day."

Here's something I found whilst browsing another forum.

did you by any chance read the webpage before you posted the link for it?
here is an excerpt from the "candy panties" wikipedia link:
:
As sugar is a favorite food of yeast, it is advisable to avoid contact between sugar and the vagina, or the woman may risk a yeast infection. When edible underwear will be touching the vagina, care should therefore be taken to ensure it does not contain sugars.

There is also danger to the edible underwear eater- as there are food illnesses related to eating something that has touched the anus.

:
I didn't know yeast had food preferences...ah, anthropomorphisation :D
I'm as mad as I am, but no madder!

'Quod me non necat, me confirmat.' - probably Nietzsche (except he, presumably, said it in German. It's nicer in Latin).

'I have found the great paradox - if you love so much it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.' - Mother Teresa. I've probably misquoted her but that's the gist of it.

"May you live in interesting times" --Ancient Chinese curse.

I beg to differ...  While it's (almost) always quoted as being an "Ancient Chinese Curse" it appears to have a much more recent (but unknown) provenance.

I like it.

And for those who quote in latin: Would it be too much to ask to have a translation, for those who don't read latin?

Otherwise, it's very rude...  >:(

Or Howard Tayler's version: "That which does not kill me has made a serious tactical error."
