" He's not dead, he's just Electroencepholographically challenged" "Cogito Eggo Sum" (I think I am a Waffle in Latin) "We are a paranoid Schizophrenic and we outnumber you two to one!" "If everything is coming towards you, you're in the wrong lane" By the way... sorry for all the separate posts

Good collection (except the Latin is obviously wrong) L

Just out of curiosity, what is the correct translation? (I heard it second hand from the son of a Latin professor)

I'm not too good, but I can translate what you wrote to: (think) (me) (am) Ego has been corrupted, probably to infer 'waffle' - for which there isn't a classical Latin word. I'm sure the forms of the words are also grammatically incorrect, but I was hoping for someone who knew Latin better to explain... L

in the sentence just eggo is wrong... its a quoth from rené descartes 'cogito ergo sum' means 'i think, thus i am'

Thank you for your correction, I'll try ask the professor...

Aye, let us know what they say - I'm interested. L

oops, I guess I got it wrong, it's apparently "Ego reputo sum Eggo" I don't know how I got Cogito Eggo sum from that... Thanks for noticing by the way

Can you give us a word-by-word translation? (I'm not good with Latin, so I'd appreciate the insight) L

my winning slogan is 'Genießen und weitermachen' which should roughly translate to something like 'enjoy and proceed'

if it's not cool enough for me, it''s not cool enough for the site

What do I care? (about anything?)

What difference does it make? L

If at first you don't succeed, don't try skydiving!!

Does it seem strange to you that the prefix "poly" means many, and ticks are tiny bloodsucking insects, and when you combine them you get "politics"? If the opposite of "pro" is "con", then what is the opposite of "progress? I used to be sane, but I got better If life gives you llamas, make llamanade Isn't it disconcerting that what Doctors do is called "practice"? Anything not nailed down is mine, anything I can pry loose, is not nailed down If you wish upon a star, your wish will come true- unless it's really a meteor hurtling towards Earth that will destroy all life "If you come to a fork in the road, take it" -Yogi Bera Procrastination- never put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after If you're good, I'll give you the antidote

"Never, ever, question the Geek's Judgment"

GOVERNMENT: If you think the problems we create are bad; Just wait until you see our solutions....

"There are 10 types of people who understand binary: those who do, and those who don't" L

I showed that to my wife....apparently she is one of those that do not ;-)

Ha ha, I think that's why tech-geeks buy and wear the T-shirts L

Dale Gribble: "Guns don't kill people, the government does." L

An optimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half full". A pessimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half empty" I see a half a pint of milk, I make cheese out of it!

Another good one. Perhaps someone could make a small amount of money from a book entitled "101 ways to look at half a pint of milk"? Nah, it's a bit 80's isn't it? L

It might be. Now hurry up and go shift some paradigms and think outside the box ;-)

mmm, but it isn't. I'm an advocate of "If you don't make plans, nothing can go wrong" L

almost like: If you have no destination, you're never sure if you have arrived. ;-)

No such as thing as "a bit 80's"! Any way to get money is a good way to get money my friend! Especially in this economy! Lol saying that's 80's is like saying: An optimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half full". A pessimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half empty" I see a half a pint of milk, I say, "That's so 80s!"

Well aye. Go ahead and and some money (I can't motivate myself) L

mine is, "Don't tell me what to do." The other one is, "Don't tell me what to do"

Life is a sucking, swirling vortex of despair.

(with thanks to my graduate school office-mate).

So, I suppose it is your opinion that gravity sucks LOL

I didn't come up with it, but it's been my slogan ever since :-) What would you prefer, "Be a pepper"?

I personally have to go with: "When life gives you lemons, you make batteries" Also: "If you give a man a fire, he will be warm for an hour, but if you set a man on fire, he will be warm for the rest of his life." :-P

Never ever go in without knocking.

Unless your family has the unnecessary habit of leaving the door open because "they didn't think anyone would go by". *shudder*

(that's the habit my family has, especially my sister) (definately unwelcomed visions, that temporarily blind me)

Ergh, I was just speaking of spoiled surprises, not sights best left unseen...

Haha, I can't even remember. Some gift or...something like that, I don't even recall anymore.
