cybercelibate: Who remembers Monster Rancher? I owned all of them :~) I played Monster Rancher 2 for sooooo long. I’ve still got old CDs that I marked on letting me know what they made in the game.
“If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, that’s not progress. If you pull it all the way out, that’s not progress. The progress comes from healing the wound that the blow made. They haven’t even begun to pull the knife out. They won’t even admit the knife is there.” —Malcolm X Never heard this before. Wow.
Bartlet: "Good morning! I’m speaking to you live from the West Wing of the White House. Today we have a very unique opportunity to take part live in an extremely historic event which -" Whoa, boy.
Sam: How you doing, Mr. President?
Bartlet: Who wrote this intro?

You, me, and 60,000 of your fellow students across the country along with astroscientists and engineers from the Jet Propulsion Lab in Southern California, NASA in Houston, and right here at the White House, are going to be the first to see what it sees, and to chronicle the extraordinary voyage of an unmanned ship called Galileo V.”
Bartlet: He said it right.

imperialchill: An NYT Opinion on America’s politicians who are lawyers, not scientists. “For complex historical reasons, Americans have long privately dismissed scientists and mathematicians as impractical and elitist, even while publicly paying lip service to them.” “To avoid receiving the candidates’ canned responses on these and other issues, I sometimes wish that a debate moderator would...
The race against a fictional man.
About what I said last night regarding the president. That’s one of the things that baffles me so much. The GOP tries to paint him as some kind of monster working for the destruction of the nation. They constantly lie about and insult the man when anyone that spends even a few minutes listening to him will know otherwise. Like so many others have said in recent times, the Republican party is...
I’ve said it before, and I could be dead wrong, but the president seems like the nicest man ever.
