It's hard to be right. And it's easy to learn the rules and manipulate them to your benefit. [GM]

'Borrowing' an idea is not flattery; it is stealing. If you had an ounce of creativity in you, you would have come up with it yourself.

You can always beat everyone at something, and you can always beat someone at everything. Compete against yourself and you'll always get better, because you can never beat yourself. [GM]

A man who wants nothing is undefeatable. The man who wants everything is poor and vulnerable. [GM]

Claughter [also "clafter"] - The sound of a happy audience laughing, clapping, and bemused all at once.

Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man who's not a creep,

One who's handsome, smart and strong.
One who loves to listen long,

One who thinks before he speaks,
One who'll call, not wait for weeks.

I pray he's gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won't be annoyed.

Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
Massages my back and begs to do more.

Oh! Send me a man who'll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to "how big is my behind?"

I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.

I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac with
huge boobs who owns a bar on a golf course,
and loves to send me fishing and hunting. This
doesn't rhyme and I don't give a shit.
