I've seen Chumbawamba live in 1990 at the AJZ Bielefeld. Man, I'm old.

The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent.

I use that as a reminder to be appropriately cautious and diversified.

I'm looking for a Blaise Pascal quote... I tried to find it using google for like an hour the other day and failed.

One of the most incredible things I've ever read and now I can't find it anywhere... its a really long one... a part of it something like "I know not why I was given existence in this space of time" or something like that...

I hate my brain... I wish I could remember it

Kids swimming over their heads in propaganda. The only option is to grow gils or drown. It used to be ankle deep, but now it's ten stories high and somehow shallower than ever.

I may be flying a complicated airplane, rushing through space, but in this cabin I'm surrounded by simplicity and thoughts set free of time. How detached the intimate things around me seem from the great world down below. How strange is this combination of proximity and separation. That ground — seconds away — thousands of miles away. This air, stirring mildly around me. That air, rushing by with the speed of a tornado, an inch beyond. These minute details in my cockpit. The grandeur of the world outside. The nearness of death. The longness of life.

Also from Dave Grohl:

Spoiler:
"If you play a Nickelback song backwards you’ll hear messages from the devil. Even worse, if you play it forwards you’ll hear Nickelback."

"Nickelback walks into a bar...there's no punchline because ruining music isn't funny."

"The McRib looks vaguely similar to ribs in the same way that people who eat them look vaguely similar to people." (H8rs gonna h8)

"In the spirit of Mother's Day... Yo mamma so fat I took a picture of her last Christmas and its still printing."

And my favorite: "FRESH POT!!!!!" (some NSFW content)

"Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life. While poverty persists, there is no true freedom." -Nelson Mandela

" At the end of the day, i have respect for anyone who wants to make a change for themselves and start training and improving their body and health. In my opinion, the gym/training/dieting lifestyle is by far the most fun and rewarding way to live your life. The people that laugh at the overweight/obese people in the gym are a disgrace, i applaud them for having the courage and determination to train and want to make a change for themselves despite the obvious hardships they would face. At the end of the day, its all up to how much you want it yourself. Some people dont care that much and are happy with their bodies and its not a big issue for them, good for them, but for anyone to take the piss out of and ridicule anyone trying their best to lose weight/gain muscle and make a change for themselves, especially if they are finding it hard due to their genetics, make me sick. If you want it, you will get it, and will eventually prove the haters wrong. And that is one of the best feelings a human being can experience."
