His philosophy was a mixture of three famous schools -- the Cynics, the Stoics and the Epicureans -- and summed up all three of them in his famous phrase, 'You can't trust any bugger further than you can throw him, and there's nothing you can do about it, so let's have a drink."

It could be taken that way. The dictionary includes both misguided and wrong as a description of 'mistake'. It boils down to people have treated one another horrendously. And it's worse (imo) when it's 'justified' by religion/dogma/politics.

They're making "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" into a movie!



I don't know if this will be any good, but I'm already in love with the scenery and landscapes.

I thought of putting this in the Cat and Dog thread in Bag End, but I think it should go here.

I saw this post saying something like "why could we remember tons of phone numbers but we can't remember our passwords?" So I'm thinkin... use old phone numbers for passwords. Brain hack!
