They asked a wise man, 'Is he who gives you a wild tiger in a jade box being truly generous?'

The Great Sage replied, 'How should I know?'"
Yep, you totally outsmarted me ~ Wildcat.

Young, inquisitive Bruce: Why do we scan all of our reports as pdfs before sending them to our clients?

Old boss (tired of Bruce's questions): Because it can't be altered. Keeps our clients from changing something and claiming we did it.

Young, inquisitive Bruce: But pdfs absolutely can be altered. In fact, Adobe itself makes a pdf to text converter. There are better digital technologies that has been around for years that are way more secure than pdf.

Old, world-weary Bruce training new recruits: Why scan pdfs? Because fuck our clients and modern technology. Just be grateful that you have a job and you're not making copies of these reports with a quill in the basement of a church. Maintaining the status quo in the corporate world is more important than common sense. If you want innovation, go join a start-up and see how long it can stand up to big pharma before it buys it out, swallows its assets and shits you out on the curb.
Such potential!

I dunno what stigmata sufferers are whining about. A little bit of blood from the hands is not much to write home about.

They should think themselves lucky that Jesus didn't live in a more modern environment, such as the French Revolution when their heads would just fall off, or modern day Texas where they would shake violently from side to side with their hair standing on end while their eyeballs boiled.

The story goes that he was out riding with two of his junior staff officers on day. They see a landscape, and one of the officers says, "Isn't that beautiful?!"

But [Field Marshal Alfred von – Ed.] Schlieffen looks and says, "A minor tactical obstacle!"

Dog philosophy
If you can't eat it or fuck it piss on it.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

"So we must beware of a tyranny of opinion which tries to make only one side of a question the one which may be heard. Everyone is in favour of it. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage."
