Day 1: Better to be poor and honest than a rich person no one can trust.

But because it's first day here's another for all you leechers...

Some people dig a fork into the pie but are too lazy to raise it to their mouth

Hobbit
12-24-2007, 12:12 AM
Sure :)

And just for kicks this sorta relates to your idea..

Day 4 (bonus :p): A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.

Now you can leave a mark by answering questions:rolleyes: :D

Hobbit
12-24-2007, 12:38 AM
Lol okie dokie, Maybe I'll do a few more then just one a day if I'm in the mood, but 1 keeps it suspenseful ;)

Day 8: Only the dead have seen the end of the war. - Plato

I'm gonna start putting who said it (Sometimes it gives it more meaning)
And no its not to get my post count up, if I wanted that I'd post in the "Love" thread as much as I used to. I new quotes on their own post because that way people who are subscribed know when a new one comes.

day 11: The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one. - Hobbit

Thread hijacking is when you take over someones thread for another topic. So say you and someone else started talking about cars on this thread, then you've "hijacked" my thread.

And fine I guess I'll double post cause then it will alert the subscribed people (thats my excuse :p)

Quote - I liked it, infact, I liked it better than some of the others (bad grammar?) you posted.
DPing - I don't think you should worry about it. This is a special case, not some narb annoying my ass off by triple-posting the same thing.
&&& thanks for explaining the thingy.

Dude, you should put more of yours here.

It takes me a long time to think of stuff like the last one, and its usually when im angered and dealing with people, this time it was yanix on a different account (http://www.villavu.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23158?p=307707&post307707)

Hobbit
12-29-2007, 01:51 AM
No just saying it's a service I am providing by posting them

example: Bob's book store, they aren't his books, the just sells them.

And I did post some of my own, and only like 3 have been from world of quotes, all their quotes suck.

Jackrawl

..
I'm sorry, i understand how frustrating people like that can be.

..

I, eh, said some stuff to him.
Are you angry because of that only?

And what did Yanix1337 or 1337Yanix do anyway?
Add me on MSN if you want..

He made fun of gay people on CS and a lot of other stuff, apparently. I asked about this myself - it's somewhere on the first page of General News titled 'Yanix'
and trust me. That kid is not 1337 if hes dissing people who hump others on CS.

Hobbit
12-29-2007, 06:06 AM
It was not only that, he has had many previous incidents in the past and his thread discriminating gay people and his sig were what pushed it over the line.

Really?

Not many would. The human mind is designed with selective (if thats the word?) vision/hearing. People only see what they want to, so if you were honest with that statement, I envy you. Because I would probably take the stuff I wrote as an offence towards me if someone wrote what I wrote to you, to me. Yeeeah. So, with other words, I want to be as open-minded as you. =/

Hobbit
01-15-2008, 03:47 AM
Who you are as a person, as in if you are trustworthy, good, bad, mean, selfish, helpful, etc, are all your character. So if the don't remember you by your character they can only then remember you as how you looked and your name. I have a feeling your rebuttal to that would be "What about if they remember what you did". What you do, and what you make of your life as a person creates who your are...which is... your character.

Although I know its your "Quote Thread" Hobbit but my Signature is probably one of the best quotes (from a book) that I've heard.

"People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool." - Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander

"The Hacker Manifesto

by
+++The Mentor+++
Written January 8, 1986

Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...

Damn kids. They're all alike.

But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?

I am a hacker, enter my world...

Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...

Damn underachiever. They're all alike.

I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms. Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..."

Damn kid. Probably copied it. They're all alike.

I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me.. Or thinks I'm a smart ass.. Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here...

Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.

And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...

Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike...

You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike."

Although this may not apply to all of you it really says a lot to those of us who it does.

And that has made all the difference.
