Quote of the day

“Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic.”

― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray


A woman’s love is like the morning dew. It’s just as likely to settle on a horse turd as a rose .” — Larry McMurtry


There is, perhaps, another version of Clarke’s Third Law (“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”) which is this:

  • Any sufficiently intelligent and profound pronouncement is indistinguishable from hogwash.

Borges was one scary smart guy, IMO.

TT stands for Taipei Times. @Belgian_Pie is quoting a remark from the comments section of a Taipei Times article published on October 3 of last year. WHAT’S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LINK IS NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK OR MIXED COMPANY :nsfw:.

It’s on the list:
Top Teacher?
Trump Touter?
Taipei Times?

I’m pretty sure the TAIWAN NUMBA ONE and the CHINA NUMBA 19 parts are inspired by an exchange from an online game that was captured in a video a few years ago (again, :nsfw:):

Except that in the video I think it’s CHINA NUMBA 4.
