Which reminds me, Mr Pid

That I was channel-surfing last weekend and ran into Ferris Bueller's Day Off just in time to hear one of Ferris's monologues that dovetails with your Lennon quote...

"I do have a test today. That wasn't bullshit. It's on European socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they're socialists? They could be fascist anarchists. It still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any "ism" for that matter. "Isms" in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an "ism", he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off of people."

"act of God" since 1635 AD

"Courts have recognized various events as acts of God—tornadoes, earthquakes, death, extraordinarily high tides, violent winds, and floods. Many insurance policies for property damage exclude from their protection damage caused by acts of God."

'It's a funny thing about looking for things. If you hunt for a needle in a haystack you don't find it. If you don't give a darn whether you ever see the needle or not it runs into you the first time you lean against the stack.'

-----ENTHUSIASM--------(-----@

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines
of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your
might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own
personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and
faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great
was ever achieved without enthusiasm."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
