None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I used to have the first quote on the door at work, and watched it definitely confuse the boss of the next department over. I think that means it was a successful message.

I was going to type something awesome, but the fueng shwei or some other damn thing was so wrong I wound up shooting my keyboard, ten times, with a .45. All you eggheads happy now? Shit, hows a man supposed to have a bowel movement with a bunch of buffaloe rifles pointed at him?
