"- Warren Eckstein "A home without a cat- and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat- may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove title? " "If animals could speak the dog would be a a blundering outspoken fellow, but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much "A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime.
" "I simply can't resist a cat, particularly a purring one. "Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the leash. "I like pigs. The love of a parasite is worth nothing. In May of 1948, author Ayn Rand received a letter from a fan named Joanne Rondeau.
In it, she asked Rand to explain a sentence in her bestselling 1943 novel, The Fountainhead, which reads: To say 'I love you' one must first know how to say the 'I'. Rand responded with the following letter. (Source: Little Big Book Of Life; Image: Ayn Rand, via.) May 22, 1948Dear Ms. The 7 Greatest (True) Johnny Depp Stories Ever Told. Somehow Johnny Depp always seems to commits the weirdest crimes.
Even when the guy is doing something "wrong", he does it with style. He's never been arrested for doing anything outside of the realm of what you'd expect from him, even with all his money. In 1994, Depp was staying at a fancy New York hotel and completely wrecked his room. Like, furniture everywhere, broken glass, the works. Roger Daltrey (lead singer of The Who) was staying in the room next door and complained of the noise Depp was making. When police arrived at the scene, there was a smashed glass coffee-table and other destroyed, mangled furniture in the $1200-a-night suite. The alleged creature was never found. Johnny Depp's cavalier attitude about his brushes with the law and incarceration make him even more awesome. The other crime Depp was caught committing is just as unexpected, and pretty damn awesome (not including that paparazzi brawl he had, because really, who could stand those people).

Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult. Barbara Stanwyck: "We're both rotten!
" Fred MacMurray: "Yeah - only you're a little more rotten. " -"Double Indemnity" (1944) Those lines of dialogue from a classic film noir sum up the state of the two political parties in contemporary America. Both parties are rotten - how could they not be, given the complete infestation of the political system by corporate money on a scale that now requires a presidential candidate to raise upwards of a billion dollars to be competitive in the general election?
Both parties are captives to corporate loot. But both parties are not rotten in quite the same way. To those millions of Americans who have finally begun paying attention to politics and watched with exasperation the tragicomedy of the debt ceiling extension, it may have come as a shock that the Republican Party is so full of lunatics.
The debt ceiling extension is not the only example of this sort of political terrorism. John P. The media are also complicit in this phenomenon. 1. Abandoned on Everest. In 2006, a lone climber attempting the summit of Mount Everest for the third time was, purely by chance, caught in an amateur photograph taken by another climber of the scenic mountaintop ahead.
The climber in the photograph was making his way up what is known as the Final Push of the Northeast ridge, between Camp VI at 8,230 m and the summit. It was late in the afternoon, a foolishly reckless time to undertake the lengthy and dangerous route. It would be many hours before the the photographer and his climbing team saw the man again. Leaving the camp at the recommended time, shortly before midnight in order to reach the summit at daybreak, they were first in line of a total of roughly 40 climbers attempting the Final Push that day. A long train of men, all tethered to the lengths of rope permanently in place to keep climbers on the right track.
For decades, this rope had taken climbers within a few feet of what became known as Green Boots cave. & The Changing Face of Beauty & Premiere Vanities Blog.

11 Things the Wealthiest Americans Can Buy for the U.S. Viewpoint: American English is getting on well, thanks. 26 July 2011Last updated at 03:52 American and British English are siblings from the same parentage. Neither is the parent of the other There's been much debate on these pages in recent days about the spread of Americanisms - outside the US. Here, American lexicographer and broadcaster Grant Barrett offers a riposte. When Matthew Engel wrote here earlier this month about the impact of American English on British English, he restarted a debate about the changing nature of language which ended in dozens of suggestions from readers of their own loathed Americanisms.
Most of those submitted were neither particularly American nor original to American English. But the point that Americans are ruining English is enough to puff a Yank up with pride. We Americans lead at least two staggeringly expensive wars elsewhere in the world, but with a few cost-free changes to the lexis we apparently have the British running in fear in the High Street. Soon we'll have Sainsbury's to ourselves! Point of enquiry. Which of the All-Time Top 100 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books Is...

Location, Location, Location. I could have kissed you under cherry blossoms, pale petals drifting down like the trees wanted to pretend they could be snowclouds.
I could have kissed you in the rain, drenched to our bones and not even caring that the skies opened up above us and tried to wash us out. I could have kissed you in a clearing in the most secluded woods, with just the sound of wind rustling through the leaves and a few voyeuristic finches peeping at us. Instead, I kissed you in the parking lot of a Waffle House, just shy of 2 a.m. in the middle of a hectic week, with our waitress grinning at us from the other side of the window, because, honestly, how could I not?
