Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other

Marcus "They don't know the first thing about ethics! Okay, when a stripper takes £150 as a tip, is there or is there not a blow-job implied?!"

Rev. Adam Smallbone "I'm not a legal expert."

Marcus "It's understood, right?!"

Rev. Adam Smallbone "My wife is a lawyer though, I'm not sure she'd want to take your case 'cause mightn't blow-jobs contravene their no touch policy?"

Marcus "Let's get shit-faced!"

Besides, as the vilest Writer has his Readers, so the greatest Liar has his Believers; and it often happens, that if a Lie be believ’d only for an Hour, it has done its Work, and there is no farther occasion for it. Falsehood flies, and the Truth comes limping after it; so that when Men come to be undeceiv’d, it is too late; the Jest is over, and the Tale has had its Effect…

The problem is, Nigel, if we both of us stay in this room, I'm going to cut your genitals off and burn them in front of you in this mug.

One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don't go into government.

Donald Trump
The point is that you can't be too greedy.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

I've had the song Cleopatra by the Lumineers stuck in my head all day, so I looked up the lyrics. Damn depressing.
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

There are three signs of senility. The first sign is that a man forgets his theorems. The second sign is that he forgets to zip up. The third sign is that he forgets to zip down.
