Most of them usually appeal their convictions.

Nature also abhors a dust mop.

everyone has to be somewhere- said the boyfriend to the husband, when the latter came home unexpectedly and found him hiding under the bed and asked him- 'what are you doing here"?

"The wise learn from the experience of others, and the creative know how to make a crumb of experience go a long way."
fredsevent on 2012-02-05 15:21:55
No. you're totally wrong dude. The wise learn from solving cryptograms and absorbing the quotes. The creative...eh...who knows, they're weird.
spellbinder on 2012-07-07 11:53:09
The creative...those weirdos utter sentences that become famous quotes and end up on this site. Then we, the wise people solve it .
wordfairy on 2014-10-09 12:31:36
Hear, hear! :)
Quizzical on 2014-10-22 13:53:54
And we the wise people pick them apart for their nonsense.
marnita on 2016-05-04 12:23:34
And complain about their grammar and word usage.
"Isn't it marvelous how those scientists know the names of all those stars? "
bansaisequoia on 2010-05-27 19:39:34
Like Betelgeuse, Procyon, Antares, Fomalhaut and Torcularis Septentrionalis?
pootie49 on 2012-07-03 13:46:31
um yup those!
montyb on 2012-07-30 22:05:02
Don't forget Altair, Deneb, Algol, Arturus, Barnard's star, Spica, Wolf 359. Yes there really is a Wolf 359, but we're a few centuries from meeting the Borg there.

The Borg are here on Earth! Yes! There's Bjorn Borg, and Sven Borg and Annika Borg and Haakon Borg and Kirsten Borg...

From this cracked egg to another, Bansai.
momof7 on 2013-10-19 14:42:22
I feel more scrambled.
wvwoman on 2013-11-30 03:39:34
cracked AND scrambled here.
SippyGurl on 2014-06-02 10:13:29
soft boiled am i
nothing on 2015-01-26 16:00:18
Ahh - my true identity - I am all types of eggs: sometimes hard boiled, sometimes poached, benedict. souffle or flambe
oddcouple on 2015-05-01 01:33:58
Fried for me.

An egg is not of much use until it is cracked.
My lord, what have I created?
"A mind all logic is like a knife all blade."
montyb on 2012-08-28 00:58:18
I can't quite get a handle on this one.
wvwoman on 2012-12-06 17:16:45
the full quote is: "A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it." is that helpful? (it doesn't help me much.)
geeko321 on 2013-10-21 09:17:20
Monty's comment was a joke. And a quite clever one I might add. :)
universalmom on 2014-06-09 12:46:46
(can't believe I even got hereβ¦:P)
chopstix on 2014-07-03 06:38:51
hahahahaha to the thread of the first 3 comments!
kb83 on 2014-10-20 06:46:57
As a user of logic, I feel shafted.
tjsrc on 2015-02-19 06:39:03
And a mind without any logic is like a knife with no blade: useless.
LLapp on 2015-07-04 14:02:36
And a mind all anecdotal evidence is a knife all handle. (What a fun metaphor -- it can work all kinds of ways.)
judy100 on 2015-07-27 12:14:47
There are many dull logicians.
GtrZan on 2016-05-06 04:47:15
a) I really like this quote. b) I really like montyb's comment, very punny. c) I got nuthin' to add but Mr Spock would love this conversation
