->Major Barkison had a sure method of foretelling weather, or anything else for that matter: He would, for instance, select a certain patch of sky and then slowly count to three; if, during that time, no sea gull crossed the patch of sky, the thing he wanted would come true. This method could be applied to everything and the Major had great faith in it.\\\
He looked at a certain section of sky above a distant volcano. Slowly he counted. At the count of two a gull flew across his patch of sky. The Major frowned. [[MovingTheGoalposts He had a way, however, of dealing with this sort of thing.]] He would use the best two counts out of three. Quickly he counted. No gull appeared. The trip would not be bad.

-> The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't change their views to fit the facts. They change the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs changing.

Of course, now that the Bucs have procured Winston, theyíre taking it one step further by trying to change the narrative and paint him as some kind of mutant football savant...Not only is this cynical--even craven--but it could also all be a pack of lies.

->The free market has told the producer John Aglialoro they donít want any ''Film/AtlasShrugged'' but apparently he has responded back with essentially ď[[{{Hypocrite}} Fuck you, we are making Part III!]]ď.

->If Zamenhof didn't mean to name his creation [[UsefulNotes/EsperantoTheUniversalLanguage "Esperanto"]], what name did he intend it to be known by? The answer is, ''la lingvo internacia'' = "the international language". Here the definite article [[SmallNameBigEgo is an absurd boast]], since there were already plenty of other tongues with a history of use as an international lingua franca. [[OlderThanTheyThink Esperanto wasn't even the first]] ''constructed'' auxiliary language to attract a cosmopolitan following. And yet I still get emails denying the existence of any other international language. From foreign countries. In English.
