Seven more /. sigs

  1. The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
    • If it moves, tax it.
    • If it keeps moving, regulate it.
    • If it stops moving, subsidize it.
    –Ronald Reagan

  2. Build a man a fire, he's warm for one night. Set him on fire, and he's warm for the rest of his life.

  3. There are three ways to get something done:
    1. Do it yourself.
    2. Hire someone to do it for you.
    3. Forbid your kids to do it.

  4. "Which episode was that?"
    It was that episode where the Enterprise entered a strange area of space. Mr. Data generated a theory that correctly explained what it was they were experiencing. Riker used a metaphor to describe the phenomenon so bumpkins like me could understand it. Mr. La Forge set up some strange energy thingy to fire at it, but that didn't work. Worf suggested battle stations, but Picard didn't want to appear aggressive. Wesley knew all along what to do but nobody listened to him. Troi said people were scared. I forget how they got out of it but the effect was pretty neat. The most notable aspect of this episode was that the Holodeck was in perfect working order.

  5. I have seen the future, and it is inconvenient.

  6. Roses are #FF0000, violets are #0000FF, all my base are belong to you.

  7. "The amount of intelligence on this planet is a constant. The population is growing." –Cole's Axiom
