->You're not Good, at least not any definition of Good that I would want to follow. You follow the letter of the alignment description while ignoring its intent. Sure, you fight Evil, but when was the last time you showed a "concern for the dignity of sentient beings?" You're just a meanfa, socially inept bully who hides behind a badge and her holier-than-thou morality as excuses to treat other people like crap.

->'''Sir Morris:''' I'm hungry Boris.\\
'''Sir Boris:''' So am I, Morris. Breakfast isn't until 7:00.\\
'''Sir Morris:''' We could have seven o'clock a bit earlier. At "now" perhaps.\\
'''Sir Boris:''' No, we'll just have to wait.

->The laws were made to help us govern ourselves...but it's been left to rule on it's own. Somewhere along the line it's been twisted into...scripture! And it's used as an excuse not to think.

->If that's how Kilgore fought the war, I began to wonder what they really had against Kurtz. It wasn't just insanity and murder; there was enough of that to go around for everyone.

"I fix the roof."\\
"And when you're finished?"\\
"I jump down."\\
"You'll break more than bones at this height."\\
"I see no reason to change my decision. I have not finished mowing the lawn. I must remain loyal to the mission."

->I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their stringent execution.

->In the SovietUnion it was illegal to take a photograph of a train station. Look what happened to them. They tried to classify everything.

->For some strange reason, straight edge is treated as a gang by law enforcement in at least one locale (Salt Lake City, Utah). Bizarre! -- the police want kids to say no to drugs and alcohol, but when a group of kids comes along who actually do, they are treated as a gang anyway. Oddly, straight edgers are probably the only youth in Utah (Mormons included) who actually follow the Mormon 'word of wisdom' concerning alcohol, tobacco, and coffee.

->My friends in Los Angeles got these letters warning they could be fined if they water, and I got a letter warning that I could be [[MortonsFork fined for not watering]]. I felt like I was in an alternate universe.

->Paul Joyce was a very technically-minded director, meaning that although the designers and visual effects team have nothing but praise for him, others are less enthusiastic... Joyce also got into a dispute with the lighting director, John Dixon, because Joyce wanted to include the lights in a shot of the privateer set (implying that they were part of the privateer) and Dixon wound up stopping the show for two hours in protest. Joyce would later describe the incident as '[[KafkaComedy Kafkaesque.]]'

->The Pertwee book should be out towards the end of next week if all goes well -- I've just gotten the last edits back, and am typesetting and doing the requisite fighting with Amazon's system. (Let's see if they accuse me of plagiarizing my blog again).

->After some farcical manoeuvres, the Australian Senate has passed the Abbott governments legislation repealing the carbon price/tax/trading scheme...In reality, Abbott and the rest want to [[HeadInTheSandManagement do nothing]], and the motives for this desire are entirely base. For a minority of the do-nothing group, it is simply a matter of financial self-interest associated with the fossil fuel industry. For the majority, however, it is the pursuit of a tribal and ideological vendetta. Their position is driven by Culture War animosity towards greens, scientists, do-gooders and so on, or by ideological commitment to a conservative/libertarian position that would be undermined by the recognition of a global problem that can only be fixed by changes to existing structures of property rights.
