Don't worry folks, that enormous Matlock banner is gone. See what happens when you post without doublechecking? So sorry...

Well why don't we do an old fashioned quotes/weird news post? Let's, shall we?...

"Everyone thinks of changing the world,
but no one thinks of changing himself."

- Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

"'Tis nobler to lose honor to save the lives of men than
it is to gain honor by taking them."

- David Borenstein, 1996

"It is better to deserve honors and not have them than
to have them and not deserve them."

- Mark Twain

"Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud."

- Sophocles

"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing,
great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions
of honor and good sense."

- Sr. Winston Spencer Churchill

And a few more from Sir Churchill:

"The greatest lesson in life is to know that
even fools are right sometimes."

"The price of greatness is responsibility."

"The optimist sees opportunity in every danger;
the pessimist sees danger in every opportunity."

"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and
won't change the subject."

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing
its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means
to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight;
and never stop fighting."

- E. E. Cummings, 1955

"The life of every man is a diary in which he means
to write one story, and writes another."

- James Matthew Barrie (Author of Peter Pan)

"I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople.
They ask me if they can help me, and I say, 'Have you got
anything I'd like?' Then they ask me what size I need,
and I say, 'Extra medium.'"

- Steven Wright

"If men liked shopping, they'd call it research."

- Cynthia Nelms (1846-1911)
US social reformer

"In a 'USA Today' interview, Vanna White said since her son
has been born, she wants to work less. Vanna, you turn
*tiles* for a living. If you worked any less, you'd be
the triangle player in the 'K.C. and the Sunshine Band.'"

- Dennis Miller

And just one little bit of weird news, but it's worth it:
WDIV-TV IN Detroit says a 29-year-old Port Huron, Mich., man is in trouble for a fight during which he allegedly used his prosthetic arm to hit another man.

The TV station reports the men argued late Saturday night and police say the suspect, who was not identified, swung at 40-year-old Richard Brooks, who was hit in the face. The hooked part of the prosthetic arm left a deep cut on Brooks' face and he was treated at a hospital. The suspect is expected to be arraigned on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm.
