But if you can't trust people over 30, and he was over 30 when he said it, then you can't trust what he says, therefore you can trust what he says, which in this case was not to trust anyone over 30, therefore you really can't trust what Mr. Heston says.....or can you??
It's a paradox that cannot be investigated using fallible human reason ;) Sort of like Chuck Norris.

We're having steak tonight. Any opinions on what veggie we should have? I think we have green beans, corn, and peas. I'm starting dinner in about 10 minutes (in time to watch Myth Busters)... I guess I should have posted this earlier.

Oops, forgot about that whole Wed. fasting thing!  Fwiw, we had green beans, and it turns out that we didn't have corn after all.

Thanks, Fr!
Here is a great one if you like word play:


Here is the Washington Post's Mensa Invitational which once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Here are the 2005 winners:

Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time

Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an a@@..etc. (oops!)

Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realise it was your money to start with

Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly

Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future

Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting *ahem*

Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high

Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it

Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late

Hipatitis: Terminal coolness

Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease (This one got extra credit.)

Karmageddon: It's like when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes -- right? -- and then, like, the Earth explodes and it's, like, a serious bummer

Decafalon (n.): The gruelling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you

Glibido: All talk and no action.

Dopeler effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly

Arachnoleptic fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web

Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out

Caterpallor (n.): The colour you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.

"...that cheap tequila..."

[shudders]

Please, do not drink such things! Just get one of those 50ml mini bottles of something good!

I certainly agree that you should drink something good, but only 50ml??? If that's all you're going to drink, you might as well drink water as it'll have the same affect ;)

Well, at about $2.50 a bottle I guess you could get a few of them and chug em down. Besides, I'd rather have a little bit of something good than a lotta bit of something bad. Then again I don't like Tequila, Jack Daniels, beer and lots of other stuff, so maybe I'm just picky.

Of all the disturbing things you've written, Asteriktos, the above is perhaps the most disturbing of all.

Lol, well I certainly tried to like it. In fact, in high school beer was the drink of choice, though that was because it was a social thing, not because I actually liked it. My grandfather used to buy a beer called Milwaukee's Best. I think the one sip of that beer that I had might have permanently scarred my taste buds.

that's just because you've never had Milwaukee's Best Light.  ;) ;D ;D

P.S. I love the cheepo beers they're usually the funnest and you eventually get a taste for it.  Nothing beats a nice Warsteiner though.  ;D

Perhaps you need to take another look at our Synod of Alcohol, which is on this thread.  It might enlighten you about our stance on alcoholic beverages.

Grab your coat and get your hat,
Leave your worries on the doorstep,
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street.

Can't you hear a pitter-pat?
And that happy tune is your step;
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street.

I used to walk in the shade
With my blues on parade,
But now I'm not afraid
This rover crossed over.

If I never have a cent,
I'll be rich as Rockefeller;
Gold dust at my feet
On the sunny side of the street.

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy glub gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla
Nooby abba naba
Early morning singing song

No, not all old fogeys like poetry...f'rinstance I can't tolerate it!

Sorry, i've just never been a huge fan.  I can sit through it, but not without a few stiff drinks... 
There's not enough schlivo or metaxa in the world to make me sit through a poetry reading. You must be a lightweight, Serbski!

Forgive me friend if I insulted you in any way.  Usually I like to mess around, especially on this thread. 

But honestly anything that rhymes or is even remotely associated with poetry just doesn't sit well with me.  I just can't bring myself to appreciate it.  Although I really respect people who can. 

Anyway, they were actually really thought provoking once I sat down and gave them a try. 

George, are you still going to Jerusalem?

How can a person live without singing?
I've managed to live for quite a few years now without singing... ;)

I used to enjoy music quite a bit---music was always around me, in the car, my office, home, etc.

And then I went to seminary. I've never been able to enjoy music since my classes with a certain chant professor. He's completely altered my life, and folks who knew me then and know me now say not for the better.

I just shrug my shoulders and know it must be somehow a gift from God to have music become an annoyance to me. I need music to serve as background noise if I'm in a quiet area and needing to get creative work done, but that's the only role music has in my life now.

Thank you Holy Cross!
