The Masked Potato Avenger in action:
I hereby officially deny ever doing anything, ever, in 1990, or any other year, between the start of, and the end of, years, in perpetuity, as we humanly perceive it, forever, amen.

Heinlein. Robert Heinlein. Always store beer in a dark place. By the data to date, there is only one animal in the Galaxy dangerous to man -- man himself. So he must supply his own indispensable competition. He has no enemy to help him. Men are more sentimental than women. It blurs their thinking. Certainly the game is rigged. Don't let that stop you; if youdon't bet, you can't win. Any priest or shaman must be presumed guilty until proved innocent. Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done,and why. Then do it. Get a shot off fast. This upsets him long enough to let you make your second shot perfect. There is no conclusive evidence of life after death. But there is no evidence of any sort against it. Soon enough you will know. So why fret about it? If it can't be expressed in figures, it is not science; it isopinion. It has been long known that one horse can run faster than another--but which one? Differences are crucial. A fake fortuneteller can be tolerated. But an authentic soothsayer should be shot on sigh. Cassandra did not get half the kicking around she deserved. Delusions are often functional. A mother's opinions about her children's beauty, intelligence, goodness, et cetera ad nauseam, keep her from drowning them at birth. Most "scientists" are bottle washers and button sorters. A "pacifist male" is a contradiction in terms. Most self- described "pacifists" are not pacific; they simply assume false colors. When the wind changes, they hoist the Jolly Roger. Nursing does not diminish the beauty of a woman's breasts; it enhances their charm by making them looked lived in and happy. A generation which ignores history has no past--and no future. A poet who reads his verse in public may have other nasty habits. What a wonderful world it is that has girls in it! Small change can often be found under seat cushions. History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people notstrong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it. It's amazing how much "mature wisdom" resembles being too tired. If you don't like yourself, you can't like other people. Your enemy is never a villain in his own eyes. Keep this in mind; it may offer a way to make him your friend. If not, you can kill him without hate--and quickly. A motion to adjourn is always in order. No state has an inherent right to survive through conscript troops and, in the long run, no state ever has. Roman matrons used to say to their sons: "Come back with your shield, or on it." Later on, this custom declined. So did Rome. Of all the strange "crimes" that human beings have legislatedout of nothing, "blasphemy" is the most amazing -- with "obscenity" and "indecent exposure" fighting it out for second and third place. Cheops Law: Nothing ever gets built on schedule or within budget. It is better to copulate than never. All societies are based on rules to protect pregnant women and young children. All else is surplusage, excrescence, adornment,luxury, or folly which can--and must--be dumped in emergency to preserve this prime function. As racial survival is the only universal morality, no other basic is possible. Attempts to formulate a "perfect society" on any foundation other than "Women and children first!" is not only witless it is automatically genocidal. Nevertheless, starry-eyed idealists (all of them male) have tried endlessly--and no doubt will keep on trying. All men are created unequal. Money is a power aphrodisiac. But flowers work almost as well. A brute kills for please. A fool kills from hate. There is only one way to console a widow. But remember the risk. When the need arises--and it does--you must be able to shoot your own dog. Don't farm it out--that doesn't make it nicer; it makes it worse. Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks. It may be better to be a live jackal than a dead lion, but itis better still to be a live lion. And usually easier. One man's theology is another man's belly laugh. Sex should be friendly. Otherwise stick to mechanical toys; it's more sanitary. Men rarely(if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child. Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking self-interest gives you more leverage. Little girls, like butterflies, need no excuse. You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once. Avoid making irrevocable decisions while tired or hungry. N.B.: Circumstances can force your hand. So think ahead! Place your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark. An elephant: A mouse built to government specifications. Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded--here and there, now and then-- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck." In a mature society, "civil servant" is semantically equal to"civil master." When a place gets crowded enough to required ID's, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere. A woman is not property, and husbands who think otherwise are living in a dreamworld. The second best thing about space travel is that the distances involved make war a very difficult, usually impractical,and almost always unnecessary. This is probably a loss for most people, since war is our race's most popular diversion, one which gives purpose and color to dull and stupid lives. But it is a great boon to the intelligent man who fights only when he must--never for sport. A zygote is a gamete's way of producing more gametes. This may be the purpose of the universe. There are hidden contradictions in the minds of people who "love Nature" while deploring the "artificialities" with which "Man has spoiled 'Nature.'" The obvious contradiction lies in their choice of words, which imply that man and his artifactsare not part of "Nature"--but beavers and their dams are. But the contradictions go deeper than this prima-facie absurdity. In declaring his love for a beaver dam (erected by beavers for beavers' purposes) and his hatred for dams erected by men (for the purpose of men) the "Naturist" reveals his hatred of his own race --i.e. his own self-hatred. In the case of "Naturists" such self-hatred is understandable;they are such a sorry lot. But hatred is too strong an emotion to feel toward them; pity and contempt are the most they rate. As for me, willy-nilly I am a man, not a beaver, and H. sapiens is the only race I have or can have. Fortunately for me I like being part of a race made of men women --it strikes me as a fine arrangement and perfectly "natural." Believe it or not, there were "Naturists" who opposed the first flight to old Earth's Moon as being "unnatural" and a "despoiling of Nature." "No man is an island--" Much as we may feel and act as individuals, our race is a single organism, always growing and branching-- which must be pruned regularly to be healthy. This necessity need not be argued; anyone with eyes can see that any organism which grows without limit always dies in its own poisons. The only rational question is whether pruning is best done before or after birth. Being an incurable sentimentalist I favor the former of these methods -- killing makes me queasy, even when it's a case of "He's dead and I'm alive and that's the way I wanted it to be." But this may be a mater of taste. Some shaman think that it is better to be in a war, or to die in childbirth, or to starve in misery, than never to have lived at all. They may be right. But I don't have to like it -- and I don't. Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something. Autocracy is based on the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let's play that over again too. Who decides? Any government will work if authority and responsibility are equal and coordinate. This does not insure "good" government;it simply insures that it will work. But such governments are rare -- most people want to run things but want no part of the blame. This used to be called the "backseat-driver syndrome." What are the facts? Again and again and again -- what are thefacts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what the "the stars foretell," avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history"-- what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts! Stupidity cannon be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent -- it says so right here on the label. If you have a mind capable of believing all three of these diving attributes simultaneously, I have a wonderful bargain for you. No checks, please. Cash and in small bills. Courage is the complement of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be courageous. (He is also a fool.) The two highest achievements of the human mind are the twin concepts of "loyalty" and "duty." Whenever these twin concepts fall into disrepute-- get out of there fast! You may possibly save yourself, but it is too late to save that society. It is doomed. People who go broke in a big way never miss any meals. It is the poor jerk who is shy by half a slug who must tighten his belt. The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility. And vice versa. Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathes, and not make messes in the house. Moving parts in rubbing contact require lubrication to avoid excessive wear. Honorifics and formal politeness provide lubrication where people rub together. Often the very young, the untraveled, the naive, the unsophisticated deplore these formalities as "empty," "meaningless," or "dishonest." and scorn to use them. No matter how "pure" their motives, they thereby throw sand into machinery that does not work too well at best. A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, built a wall, set a bon, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solveequations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. The more you love, the more you can love -- the more intensely you love. Nor is there any limit on how many you can love. If a person had time enough, he could love all of that majority who are decent and just. Masturbation is cheap, clean, convient, and free of any possibility of wrongdoing--and you don't have to go home in the cold. But it's lonely. Beware of altruism. It is based on self-deception, the root of all evil. If tempted by something that feels "altruistic," examine your motives and root out that self-deception. Then if you still want to do it, wallow in it! The most preposterous notion that H. sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all theexpense of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history. The second most preposterous notion is that copulation is inherently sinful. Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of -- but do it in private and was your hands afterwards. $100 placed at 7 percent interest compounded quarterly for 200 years will increase to more that $100,000,000 -- by which time it will be worth nothing. Dear, don't bore him with trivia or burden him with your past mistakes. The happiest way to deal with a man is never to tell him anything he does not need to know. Darling, a true lady takes off her dignity with her clothes and does her whorish best. At other times you can be as modest and dignified as your person requires. Everybody lies about sex. If men were the automatons that behaviorists claim they are, the behaviorist psychologists could not have invented the amazing nonsense called "behaviorist psychology." So they are wrong from scratch -- as clever and as wrong as phlogiston chemists. The shamans are forever yacking about their snake-oil "miracles." I prefer the Real McCoy -- a pregnant woman. If the universe has any purpose more important than topping a woman you love and making a baby with her hearty help, I've never heard of it. Thou shalt remember the Eleventh Commandment and keep it Wholly. A touchstone to determing the actual worth of an "intellectual" -- find out how he feels about astrology. Taxes are not levied for the benefit of the taxed. There is no such thing as "social gambling." Either you are there to cut the other bloke's heart out and eat it -- or you'rea sucker. If you don't like this choice -- don't gamble. When the ship lifts, all bills are paid. No regrets. The first time I was a drill instructor I was too inexperiencedfor the job -- the things I taught those lads must have got some of them killed. War is too serious a matter to be taught by the inexperienced. A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealous in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. Money is the sincerest of all flatter. Women love to be flattered. So do men. You live and learn. Or you don't live long. Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear. They should never settle merely for equality. For women, "equality" is a disaster. Peace is an extension of war by political means. Plenty of elbowroom is pleasanter -- and much safer. One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Supernatural"is a null word. The phrase "we (I) (you) simply must --" designates somethingthat need not be done. "That goes without saying " is a read warning. "Of Course" means you had best check it yourself. These small-change cliches and others like them, when read correctly, are reliable channel markers. Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy. Rub her feet. If you happen to be one of the fretful minority who can do creative work, never force an idea; you'll abort it if you do. Be patient and you'll give birth to it when the time is ripe. Learn to wait. Never crowd youngsters about their private affairs -- sex especially. When they are growing up, they are never ends all over, and resent (quite properly) any invasion of their privacy.Oh, sure, they'll make mistakes -- but that's their business, not yours. (You made your own mistakes, did you not ?) Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. More from the Notebooks of Lazarus Long Always tell her she is beautiful, especially if she is not. If you are part of a society that votes, the do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for ... but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you rarely go wrong. If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaningfool (there is always one around) and ask his advice. Then vote the other way. This enables you to be a good citizen (if such is your wish) without spending the enormous amount of time on it that truly intelligent exercise of franchise requires. Sovereign ingredient for a happy marriages: Pay cash or do without. Interest charges not only eat up a household budget; awareness of debt eats up domestic felicity. Those who refuse to support and defend a state have no claim to protection by that state. Killing an anarchist or a pacifist should not be defined as "murder" in a legalistic sense. The offense against the state, if any, should be "Using deadly weapons inside city limits," or "Creating a traffic hazard," or "Endangering bystanders," or other misdemeanor. However, the state may reasonably place a closed season on these exotic asocial animals whenever they are in danger of becoming extinct. An authentic buck pacifist has rarely been seen off Earth, and it is doubtful that any have survived the trouble there . . regrettable, as they had the biggest mouths and smallest brains of any of the primates. The small-mouthed variety of anarchist has spread through the Galaxy at the very wave front of the Diaspora; there is no need to protect them. But they often shoot back. Another ingredient for a happy marriage: Budget the luxuries first! And still another-- See to it that she has her own desk -- then keep your hands off it! And another-- In a family argument, if it turns out you are right -- apologize at once! "God split himself into a myriad parts that he might have friends." This may not be true, but it sounds good -- and is no sillier than any other theology. To stay young requires unceasing cultivation of the ability to unlearn old falsehoods. Does history record any case in which the majority was right? When the fox gnaws -- smile! A "critic" is a man who creates nothing and thereby feels qualified to judge the work of creative men. There is logic in this; he is unbiased -- he hates all creative people equally. Money is truthful. If a man speaks of his honor, make him pay cash. Never frighten a little man. He'll kill you. Only a sadistic scoundrel -- or a fool -- tells the bald truthon social occasions. This sad little lizard told me that he was a brontosaurus on his mother's side. I did not laugh; people who boast of ancestrYoften have little else to sustain them. Humoring them costs nothing and adds to happiness in a world in which happiness is always in short supply. In handling a stinging insect, move very slowly. To be "matter of fact" about the world is to blunder into fantasy -- and dull fantasy at that, as the real world is strange and wonderful. The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning, while the other subjects merely require scholarship. Copulation is spiritual in essence -- or it is merely friendlYexercise. On second thought, strike out "merely." Copulation is not "merely" -- even when it is just a happy pastime for two strangers. But copulation at its spiritual best is so much more than physical coupling that it is different in kind as well as indegree. The saddest feature of homosexuality is not that is "wrong" or "sinful" or even that it can't lead to progeny -- butthat it is more difficult to reach through it this spiritual union.Not impossible -- but the cars are stacked against it. But -- most sorrowfully -- many people never achieve spiritualsharing even with the help of male-female advantage; they are condemned to wander through life alone. Touch is the most fundamental sense. A baby experiences it, all over, before he is born and long before he learns to usesight, hearing, or taste, and no human ever ceases to need it. Keep your children short on pocket money -- but long on hugs. Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny. The greatest productive force is human selfishness. Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors -- and miss. The profession of shaman has many advantages. It offers high status with a safe livelihood free of work in the dreary, sweaty sense. In most societies it offers legal privileges and immunities not granted to other men. But it is hard to see how a man who has been given a mandate from on High to spread tidings of joy to all mankind can be seriously interested in taking up a collection to pay his salary; it causes one to suspectthat the shaman is on the moral level of any other con man. But it's lovely work if you can stomach it. A whore should be judged by the same criteria as other professionals offering services for pay -- such as dentists,lawyers, hairdressers, physicians, plumbers, etc. Is sheprofessionally competent? Does she give good measure? Is she honestwith her clients? It is possible that the percentage of honest and competent whores is higher than that of plumbers and much higher than that of lawyers. And enormously higher than that of professors. Minimize your therbligs until it becomes automatic; this doubles your effective lifetime -- and thereby gives time to enjoYbutterflies and kittens and rainbows. Have you noticed how much they look like orchids? Lovely! Expertise in one field does not carry over into other fields.But experts often think so. The narrower their field of knowledgethe more likely they are to think so. Never try to outstubborn a cat. Tilting at windmills hurts you more than the windmills. Yield to temptation; it may not pass your way again. Waking a person unnecessarily should not be considered a capital crime. For a first offense, that is. "Go to hell!" or other insult direct is all the answer a snoopy questions rates. The correct way to punctuate a sentence that starts :"Of course it is none of my business but --" is to place a period after the word "but." Don't use excessive force in supplying such moron with a period. Cutting his throat is only a momentary pleasure and is bound to get you talked about. A man does not insist on physical beauty in a woman who builds up his morale. After a while he realizes that she is beautiful -- he just hadn't noticed it at first. A skunk is better company than a person who prides himself on being "frank." "All's fair in love and war " -- what a contemptible lie! Beware of the "Black Swan" fallacy. Deductive logic is tautological; there is no way to get a new truth out of it, and it manipulates false statements as readily as true ones. If you fail to remember this, it can trip you -- with perfect logic. Thedesigners of the earliest computers called this the "Gigo Law"; i.e., "Garbage in, garbage out." Inductive logic is much more difficult -- but can produce newtruths. A "practical joker" deserves applause for his wit according to his quality. Bastinado is about right. For exceptional wit onemight grant keelhauling. But staking him out on an anthill should be reserved for the very wittiest. Natural laws have no pity. On the planet Tranquille around KM849(G-O) lives a little animal known as a "knafn." It is herbivorous and has no natural enemies and is easily approached and may be petted -- sort of a six-legged puppy with scales. Stroking it is very pleasant; it wiggles its pleasure and broadcast euphoria in some band that humans can detect. It's worth the trip. Someday some bright boy will figure out how to record this broadcast, then some smart boy will see commercial angles -- and not longer after that it will be regulated and taxed. In the meantime I have faked that name and catalog number; it is several thousand light-years off in another direction.Selfish of me -- Freedom begins when you tell Mrs. Grundy to go fly a kite. Take car of the cojones and the frijoles will take car of themselves. Try to have getaway money -- but don't be fanatic about it. If "everybody knows" such-and-such, then it ain't so, by at least ten thousand to one. Political tags -- such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth -- are neverbasic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from the highest motivesfor the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. All cats are not gray after midnight. Endless variety-- Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other"sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful -- just stupid.) Being generous is inborn; being altruistic is a learned perversity. No resemblance -- It is impossible for a man to love his wife wholeheartedly without loving all women somewhat. I suppose that the converse must be true of women. You can go wrong by being too skeptical as readily as by being too trusting. Formal courtesy between a husband and wife is even more important than it is between strangers. Anything free is worth what you pay for it. Don't store garlic near other victuals. Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get. Pessimist by policy, optimist by temperament -- it is possibleto be both. How? By never taking an unnecessary chance and by minimizing risks you can't avoid. This permits you to play out the game happily, untroubled by the certainty of the outcome. Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but thereward is self-respect. But there is no reward at all for doing what other people expect of you, and to do so is not merely difficult, but impossible. It is easier to deal with a footpad than it is with theleech who wants "just a few minutes of your time, please -- this won't take long." Time is your total capital, and the minutes of your life are painfully few. If you allow yourself to fall into the vice of agreeing to such requests, they quicklYsnowball to the point where these parasites will use up 100 percent of your time -- and squawk for more! So learn to say No -- and to be read about it when necessary. Otherwise you will not have time to carry out your duty, or to do your own work, and certainly no time for live and happiness. The termites will nibble away your life and leave none of it for you. (This rule does not mean that you must not do a favor for a friend, or even a stranger. But let the choice be yours. Don'tdo it because it is "expected" of you.) "I came, I saw, she conquered." (The original Latin seems to have been garbled.) A committee is a life form with six or more legs and no brain. Animals can be driven crazy by place too many in too small a pen. Homo sapiens is the only animals that voluntarily does this to himself. Don't try to have the last word. You might get it. History has the relation to truth that theology has to religion; i.e., none to speak of. Oh, I have strong opinions, but a thousand reasoned opinions are never equal to one case of diving in and finding out. Galileo proved that and it may be the only certainty we have. I learned centuries back that there is no privacy in any society crowded enough to need IDs. A law guaranteeing privacy simply insures that bugs, microphones, and lenses and so forth are that much harder to spot. Security people always spy on their bosses; they can't help it, it's a syndrome that goes with the job. There's no virtue in being old, it just takes a long time. Human beings hardly ever learn from the experience of others. They learn when they do, which isn't often on their own, the hard way. Age does not bring wisdom. Often it merely changes simple stupidity into arrogant conceit. Its only advantage, so far as I have been able to see, is that it spans change. A young person sees the world as a still picture, immutable. An old person has had his nose rubbed in changes and more changes and still more changes so many times that he knows it is a moving picture, forever changing. He may not like it; probably doesn't; I don't, but he knows it's so, and knowing it is the first step in coping with it. Then you believe in an afterlife? Slow up! I don't "believe" in anything. I know certain things - little things, not the Nine Billion Names of God from experience. But I have no beliefs. Belief gets in the way of learning. I spent my boyhood the way every boy does: trying to keep my elders from finding out what I was up to. "Common sense?" Son, that phrase is self-contradictory. "Sense" is never "common". Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig. Lazarus expressed a rhetorical and physiologically improbable wish. The purpose of my government is never to do good, but simply to refrain from doing evil. Progress doesn't come from early risers; progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things. He enjoyed it, for every hour in school was an hour sitting down doing nothing harder than reading. Before and after school he had to do chores on his family's farm, which he hated, as they were what was known as "honest work" - meaning hard, dirty, inefficient, and ill-paid - and also involved getting up early, which he hated even worse. Do not ask why; it was no more subject to rational explanation than is any other branch of theology. But David, like all true geniuses, paid only pragmatic attention to rules made by other people - he obeyed the Eleventh Commandment and never got caught. Don't ask me why. It was Navy policy and therefore did not have a reason. A capsule description of most human "progress": By the time you learn how, it's too late. May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live. Whoring is like military service, Ira: okay in the upper brackets, not so good lower down. Whores perform the same function as priests, Ira, but far more thoroughly. "Put not your faith in princes" Ira; since they don't produce, they always steal. In the first place, very little thinking was ever done in English; it is not a language suited to logical thought. Instead, its an emotive lingo beautifully adapted to concealing fallacies. A rationalizing language, not a rational one. I'm still learning English. By the naturalistic method the way a child learns his milk language. No grammar, no syntax, no dictionary just listen and talk and read it. Acquire new words by context. By that method I acquired a feeling that love' means the shared ecstasy that can be attained through sex. Is that right? Son, I hate to say this because, if you've been reading a lot of English, I see how you reached that opinion but you are one hundred percent wrong. If there is a purpose in life more important than two people cooperating in making a baby, all the philosophers in history havent been able to find it. Maybe Jesus was right when he said that the meek shall inherit the earth but they inherit very small plots, about six feet by three. Respect for laws is a pragmatic matter. Women know this instinctively; thats why they are all smugglers. Men often believe or pretend that the Law is something sacred, or at least a science an unfounded assumption very convenient to governments. They did ask, sometimes, and accepted my decision without argument. But I could see that they did not always believe me. That pleased me; they were starting to think for themselves didnt matter if they were wrong. That was encouraging; a person who can read and write and has a head for math can learn anything she needs to know. He shut up, realizing that grim old Mother Nature, red of tooth and claw, invariably punished damfools who tried to ignore Her or to repeal Her ordinances; he need not interfere. Every so often some idiot tries to abolish marriage. Such attempts work as well as repealing the law of gravity, making pi equal to three point zero, or moving mountains by prayer. Latin is majestic, especially when you dont understand it. Half the battle with any culture is knowing its taboos. Privacy is as necessary as company; you can drive a man crazy by depriving him of either. She loved them, said Minerva. Yes, she did, dear, by the exact definition of love. Llita placed their welfare and happiness ahead of her own. Llita was well above average smart but suffered from the democratic fallacy: the notion that her opinion was as good as anyones while Joe suffered from the aristocratic fallacy: He accepted the notion of authority in opinion. Any priest or shaman must be presumed guilty until proved innocent. If it can't be expressed in figures, it is not science; it is opinion. A generation which ignores history has no past and no future. History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it. All societies are based on rules to protect pregnant women and young children. All else is surplusage, excrescence, adornment, luxury, or folly, which can and must be dumped in emergency to preserve this prime function. As racial survival is the only universal morality, no other basic is possible. Attempts to formulate a "perfect society" on any foundation other than "Women and children first!" is not only witless, it is automatically genocidal. Nevertheless, starry-eyed idealists (all of them male) have tried endlessly and no doubt will keep on trying. All men are created unequal. It may be better to be a live jackal than a dead lion, but it is better still to be a live lion. And usually easier. One man's theology is another man's belly laugh. Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child. A woman is not property, and husbands who think otherwise are living in a dreamworld. A zygote is a gamete's way of producing more gametes. This may be the purpose of the universe. Democracy is based on the assumption that a million men are wiser than one man. How's that again? I missed something. Autocracy is based on the assumption that one man is wiser than a million men. Let's play that over again, too. Who decides? What are the facts? Again and again and again what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what "the stars foretell," avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable "verdict of history" what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts! God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent it says so right here on the label. If you have a mind capable of believing all three of these divine attributes simultaneously, I have a wonderful bargain for you. No checks, please. Cash and in small bills. The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility. And vice versa. Anyone who cannot cope with mathematics is not fully human. At best he is a tolerable subhuman who has learned to wear shoes, bathe, and not make messes in the house. A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. Beware of altruism. It is based on self-deception, the root of all evil. The most preposterous notion that H. sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history. The second most preposterous notion is that copulation is inherently sinful. The shamans are forever yacking about their snake-oil "miracles." I prefer the Real McCoy a pregnant woman. Taxes are not levied for the benefit of the taxed. A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Supernatural" is a null word. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. My mistake and it may be my last one. Woodrow! Dont talk that way! Sorry, dear. But there is always a last mistake. Love is what still goes on when you are not horny. Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow if tomorrow might improve the odds. If you are part of a society that votes, then do so. There may be no candidates and no measures you want to vote for, but there are certain to be ones you want to vote against. In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong. If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaning fool (there is always one around) and ask his advice. Then vote the other way. This enables you to be a good citizen (if such is your wish) without spending the enormous amount of time on it that truly intelligent exercise of franchise requires. Sovereign ingredient for a happy marriage: Pay cash or do without. Interest charges not only eat up a household budget; awareness of debt eats up domestic felicity. God split himself into a myriad parts that he might have friends. This may not be true, but it sounds good and is no sillier than any other theology. Does history record any case in which the majority was right? The difference between science and the fuzzy subjects is that science requires reasoning, while those other subjects merely require scholarship. Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny. Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors and miss. Minimize your therbligs until it becomes automatic; this doubles your effective lifetime and thereby gives time to enjoy butterflies and kittens and rainbows. Waking a person unnecessarily should not be considered a capital crime. For a first offense, that is. The correct way to punctuate a sentence that starts: "Of course it is none of my business but..." is to place a period after the word "but". Don't use excessive force in supplying such a moron with a period. Cutting his throat is only a momentary pleasure and is bound to get you talked about. Natural laws have no pity. Freedom begins when you tell Mrs. Grundy to go fly a kite. Political tags such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, conservative, and so forth are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. Climate is what you expect, weather is what you get. "I came, I saw, she conquered." (The original Latin seems to have been garbled.) The historicity of Jesus is the slipperiest question in all history because for centuries the question couldn't be raised. They would hang you for asking, or burn you at the stake. If heredity were not overwhelmingly more important than environment, you could teach calculus to a horse. I see no use in written marriage contracts; they can't be enforced...whereas if the partners want to make it work, no written instrument is necessary. A man who refuses to take his own death into account in making plans is a fool. A self-centered fool who does not love anyone. It is hard to shake off any taboos a child is indoctrinated with in his earliest years. Even if he learns later that they are nonsense. I'll find a tutor; no, Laz, not a horizontal one. Don't you ever think about anything else? (Come to think of it, dear, what else is worth thinking about? Money?) He saw that he had committed the prime sin against survival: He had indulged in wishful thinking. The best thing about the future was that it was unknown. Cassandra's one good quality was that she was never believed. TIER 1 - Crazyhead Mainstream conspiracies and "unsolved" mysteries.

This is like the time I- this reminds me of a story.... or a movie- no a story. It was me, Bobby three-thumbs, and Ralph Lauren. We were on Ralph's boat and we were sailing out of Chicago. We were drinking a few rootbeers and eating beans out of cans when suddenly we saw something coming out of the water. Bobby three-thumbs said hot damn! It's a sea monster!. I said dammit Bobby that aint no got-dammned sea monster it's a German U-boat. This ticked Ralph off something crazy and so he took me down into the hold, gave me some black pajamas. Now these were premium silk pj's, they smelled like they had been worn. Uh..... Uhhhhhh where was I goin with this..... oh yeah. So Ralph drops me off about 300 yards off the coast of South Africa and tells me there's a secret Nazi U-boat facility that I need to take out if we're going to sail to Reno. So I swam to shore, oh boy did my shoulder hurt do any of you know doctor Liebowitz? He did a bang up job getting me back on the squash court. Anyway that's what I'm saying. We need to heal the nation. Look, having nuclear ? my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart ? you know, if you?re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I?m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world ? it?s true! ? but when you?re a conservative Republican they try ? oh, do they do a number ? that?s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune ? you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we?re a little disadvantaged ? but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me ? it would have been so easy, and it?s not as important as these lives are ? nuclear is so powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what?s going to happen and he was right, who would have thought? ? but when you look at what?s going on with the four prisoners ? now it used to be three, now it?s four ? but when it was three and even now, I would have said it?s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don?t, they haven?t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it?s gonna take them about another 150 years ? but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us, this is horrible.
