as far as Kim being brain dead, I just googled Dennis Rodman, twitter and he hadn't tweeted anything in awhile so I figured they were out partying together somewhere under the radar, incognito.

"I sometimes think that God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability."
"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
"Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes"
"When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is"
"The basis of optimism is sheer terror"
"Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people we dislike"
all Oscar Wilde

"Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel" Samuel Johnson

"Don't sweat the small shit, and it's all small shit." Mr Natural

"God gave us a penis and a brain, but only enough blood to run one at a time." Robin Williams

"Try not to be a dick" the Buddha

"Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up." artist Chuck Close

On the subject of all things being one: Suppose we are at home sitting in a comfortable arm chair and reading the newspaper. On the roof is a jay bird singing. Perhaps his singing is not so good and we are a little annoyed. But if we will just open our heart to the jaybird, then he is sitting in the armchair reading the news paper, and we are on the roof singing. Shunryu Suzuki

I would say I’ll miss you, but when you were around, I pretended I didn’t know you.
Damn,what a great post to put in the quotes, but I guess it has to be viewed from the perspective of, well, you just have to picture what Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane would be saying about now:

If you wanna get yourself killed, be my guest. Darwin Awards await you, but dont encourage other people to kill themselves because you're too much of self concious fool to do the right thing.
You know, the thing I said earlier that you called stupidity was when I suggested riding safe equipment at safe speeds, so you don't need crash gear. As in riding a bicycle at bicycle speed.

So who's indulging in stupidity, really?
That's a bullshit argument.

No matter how safe you are, you're sharing the roads with a population of morons.

If you're happy to wear minimal equipment and put your life in their hands, good for you.

But calling someone stupid for taking the risk more seriously isn't cool.
