safety gear: overrated?

Hunter S. Thompson:

“I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes.”

“There are times, however, and this is one of them, when even being right feels wrong. What do you say, for instance, about a generation that has been taught that rain is poison and sex is death? If making love might be fatal and if a cool spring breeze on any summer afternoon can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison right in front of your eyes, there is not much left except TV and relentless masturbation. It’s a strange world. Some people get rich and others eat shit and die.”

“Good people drink good beer.”

“I wouldn’t recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they’ve always worked for me.”

“There is nothing so unusual, they tell me, about coming back to your car and finding the radio aerial torn off, the windshield wipers bent up in the air like spaghetti, and all the windows smashed… for no particular reason except to make sure you know just exactly where it’s at these days. Where indeed?”

“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”

Moody night, you know?

I noticed you weren’t wearing any safety glasses. Please be more careful next time. Imagine not being able to see porn or hot chicks ever again.

(off-topic) Any chance you could jump from twitter to an open service like there is a bridge available ( thats run by someone who appears trustworthy (lots of dev time on laconica, sw that runs and others).

That’s a hot picture! I almost killed my high school shop teacher with a lathe.
