"How in the HELL could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 AM by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush his teeth and hair and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were expected to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"
- Charles Bukowski, Factotum 1975

"Imagine walking into a casino where 98% of the machines and tables will never ever pay out. That's marriage."
"I am a Man. Hath not a Man eyes? Hath not a Man hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Woman is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"
- Triklops after Shakespeare (The Merchant of Venice)
"I have much respect and love for this website. I’ve been lurking and reading the collective wisdom of my brothers for several months.... making daily (sometimes hourly) withdrawls from this “bank” of knowledge that is life-saving. Rarely have I found it necessary to add further. The wise sages that regularly impart wisdom here simply articulate their thoughts in a way that has me nodding my head in agreement without any idea of how to improve upon them."
