While screamingly funny, it's also quite poignant.

"Context determines meaning."--Hawkeye was the one who first said it to me, but I doubt he was the first to ever say it.

This is, by far the best advice in terms of reading/conversation comprehension I've ever gotten. Very helpful for figuring stuff out.  Example, when talking about weight gain, if it's around, say, two women trying to lose weight, they will likely be talking about fat because how many women do you know want to look like Ronnie Coleman?  If it's say, between some skinny guys in the gym, they're likely talking about gaining some muscle.  Context.  It's not just a buzzword used by Christians failing to defend their dogma.

"Standards of morality are no substitute for economic logic. Economics requires study and systematic thinking about the implications of action, choice, and ownership in a world of scarcity. It is a science that delineates the limits of how far the human mind can wander when thinking about what society can and should be. This is one reason that intellectuals, even great ones, take such pains to avoid studying economics, and instead latch on to fantasies like socialism and syndicalism."--James Ostrowski, Chomsky's Economics:  https://mises.org/daily/1132

"We are all expendable."--Don't know if this is a fav or fail (too tired), but I suppose I'll just stick it here for now.

"People who brag about how 'experience' is better than books have always annoyed me, and I think I found out why.  They can never ever show or say why or how that is the case.  Don't get me wrong.  The best way to learn something, I've found, is being taught by someone who knows their shit.  But why can't these people ever put their money where their mouth is and just put their guru/sage advice into words and have the rest of us mere bookworms be that much better? Or could it be all their bragging about the 'virtues of experience over books' is nothing but hot air?  That they really don't know the shit as good as they think?"--Me

Just read this in a book I bought the other day:

Quote
Some things have to be investigated, just in case someone else gains an advantage from them. A report that a psychic had killed a goat prompted an investigation in the US military into the possible military application of psychic powers. According to reports, serious research is ongoing into this field, which does indeed involve soldiers determinedly trying to glare livestock to death.

Napoleon laughed at the idea of a ship powered by lighting a fire beneath its decks. Ancient generals would have sneered at the idea of men flying around in machines and attacking one another with self-guided weapons. The concept of directed energy weapons (lasers) or intercontinental missiles bearing the fires of Armageddon would probably have roused Caesar or Alexander to hysterical laughter. It may be that some day our psychic legions will look back at our rifle-armed ancestors with a mix of pity and amusement at their ignorance. It is, however, somewhat unlikely.

don't you just love the sarcasm dripping from this?  :P
