"II.7 (gladiator barracks); 8767: Floronius, privileged soldier of the 7th legion, was here.  The women did not know of his presence.  Only six women came to know, too few for such a stallion."

From graffiti of Pompeii

"And when they found they couldn't answer even these simple questions, the punks became angry, and their anger grew, and grew, until it was rage. Their rage burned brightly, filling South Street with something like light, but redder than the moon and hotter than the sun..."

I love these. nothing has changed (in a good way!)

VI.14.43 (atrium of a House of the Large Brothel); 1520: Blondie has taught me to hate dark-haired girls.  I shall hat them, if I can, but I wouldn’t mind loving them.  Pompeian Venus Fisica wrote this.

Special quotes for today:

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."

"A man who won't die for something is not fit to live....A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan."

MLK

On errors of the narrative fallacy (also called illusory correlation) and overconfidence in consensus:

"I see men ordinarily more eager to discover a reason for things than to find out whether things are so." - Michel de Montaigne 1532-1592

"The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking." - John Kenneth Galbraith

"The narative fallacy addresses our limited ability to look at sequences of facts without weaving an explanation into them, or, equivalently, forcing a logical link, an arrow of relationship, upon them. ....

The more you summarize, the more order you put in, the less randomness. Hence the same condition that makes us simplify pushes us to think that the world is less random than it actually is." - Nassim Taleb
>"When some one eats an Epi paleo Rx template and follows the rules of circadian biology they get plenty of starches when they are available three out of the four seasons." -Jack Kruse, MD
>"I recommend 20 percent of calories from carbs, depending on the size of the person" -Ron Rosedale, MD (in other words, NOT zero carbs) http://preview.tinyurl.com/6ogtan
>Finding a diet you can tolerate is not the same as fixing what's wrong. -Tim Steele

This certainly explains a lot;

United States of America and Judge Dawson vs Irwin Schiff

Prosecutor: "Objection! Irrelevant!"

Judge Dawson: "Sustained!"

Irwin Schiff: "The income tax law is irrelevant?"

Judge Dawson: "I will not allow the law in my courtroom!"

Irwin Schiff: "But the Supreme Court said in the Cheek decision . . ."

Judge Dawson: "Irrevelant! Denied!"

Irwin Schiff: "The Supreme Court is irrelevant?"

Judge Dawson: "Irrevelant! Denied!"

Ya because they do not give a fuck.
They have convinced our neighbors to be mercenaries in exchange for green paper.
All the while believing that they are doing the right thing.
Good news though... they eat junk and will probably be sterile in a couple generations.

"Look, you fools, you're in danger! Can't you see?! They're after you! They're after all of us! Our wives, our children, everyone! THEY'RE HERE, ALREADY! YOU'RE NEXT!"  from the film "Invasion of the Body-Snatchers".
"So close — the infinitesimal and the infinite. But suddenly, I knew they were really the two ends of the same concept. The unbelievably small and the unbelievably vast eventually meet — like the closing of a gigantic circle. I looked up, as if somehow I would grasp the heavens. The universe, worlds beyond number, God's silver tapestry spread across the night." from the film"The Incredible Shrinking Man".

Why would anyone want to ruin a good relationship with the institution of marriage?

Yes ,I have been with my lady for about 5 years and she has been asking about marriage, and I tell her half jokingly why would you want to ruin a good relationship with marriage. :)

We didn't get married after our first child because we like having our babies on her mothers insurance. But now that the universal health care bill went into effect the insurance company has to cover her birthing an prenatal cost for the next 4 years regardless of her marital situate, pretty much giving us the green light to marry.

But now she is 8 months pregnant with our 4th and she wants to get married sometime next month, either before or after the child is born, so I am being set up and am still not wanting to go through the ceremony out of some superstition that marriage does somehow change the relationship.

Glad it's you..... Just kidding.

I wish you all the best and I'm sure you will do the best thing.

Marriage is not so bad. It's a good place to learn about yourself. But that's another thread.

However one parting quote on the subject of marriage...

"Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free......"

Sort of a cheap shot and there are lots of replies for that mouldy oldie LOL

"If a woman respects what you do, what you represent, how you speak, how you carry yourself. You don't have to be overly macho. You don't have to be overly complementary. Gain her respect. Treating her as an equal. Don't bullshit her. Treat her as a human being. Treat her as you would treat yourself. As soon as you have that respect from her, she'll treat you with the same respect that you show. Then, you fuck the shit out of her." -John Holmes

Nassim Taleb on the "Everything in Moderation" Fallacy and the Hidden Cancer of Debt:

> I always remember my father's injunction that in medio stat virtus, 'virtue lies in moderation.' Well, for a long time that was the ideal; mediocrity, in that sense, was even deemed golden. All-embracing mediocrity.

> Debt comes as a product of overconfidence. The more confident you are, the less it makes sense ... to issue equity and dilute your profits and the more it makes sense to borrow. The problem ... is that we humans cannot be trusted with knowledge because we tend to be overconfident ... and that's sort of the message of the Black Swan.

[T]he religions ... Judaism, the Ecclesiastes, [don't] like debt. ... Christianity early on did not like debt, and Islam banned debt. It's not without a reason and then I looked and I realized that you had ... turmoil coming from debt from Babylonian times.

The Romans had problems with debt and ... a lot of wars caused by debt. So debt was not necessarily a good thing. Now people say "Well, in moderation ...," but we don't know what moderation means. If you ... asked someone in Lehman brothers ... two years ago they would have said "Oh, we have a moderate level of debt." We don't know what it means. So we have to watch out. Debt is something that is very toxic and can hit you very quickly.

In everyone's life at some time, our inner fire goes out.

It is then burst into flames by an encounter with another human being.

We should be thankful for those people who rekindle the human spirit.
