It sucks to sit in traffic for 3 hours to go 40 miles.

Coffee; the industrial lubricant of society.  I'm much too tired to imagine my toil without this potent tonic that so generously replenishes my efficacy.--MQ

 

Knowledge is power but only when it leads to comprehension.

 

You, me and millions more rationalized smoking even though we knew the deadly consequences.  Use those same disciplined rationalization skills to justify quitting smoking.  Think about that for a minute.  If we could rationalize smoking knowing full well the damaging effects it had on our health, why can’t we rationalize quitting smoking knowing full well the health benefits of quitting?--MQ

When Vin Diesel was 7, he broke into a theatre with his friends, intending to vandalize it. They were stopped by a woman who, instead of calling the cops, gave them each a role and 20 USD on condition they come for rehearsals after school. That was the unusual start to Vin’s successful acting career.

For every human on earth, there are 1.6 million ants. The total weight of those ants is roughly equal to the weight of the humans.

 

I'm off to the hardware store to buy some more ant traps  :P

This is my one & only quit attempt. If I relapse, I will die a smoker!

 The oldest condoms ever found date back to the 1640s (they were found in a cesspit at Dudley Castle), and were made from animal and fish intestines.

In the course of an average lifetime you will, while sleeping, eat 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders.
