All in all though, they're pretty cool I guess! Why do I always attract these types like flies lol?

I've always considered atheism as another kind of religion, both have similar MO, just propagate different ideas

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I've met a lot of supposedly educated people who throw their opinions around like a sledge-hammer, having little regard whether someone might hold something as sacred.

I suppose I'm unintentionally a hypocrite like the next guy but this deserves quoting again:

I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.


Where would we be without the insight of poets?

p.s: I was just dicking around with that "do you have a portrait of D.M on display prominently?" I spoke to Siniša and he confirmed that you are not the UN anti-Christ. We're not sure about Vucina though.

Gee, I'm flattered

Forgive me my blasphemy, but why does God need genitals in the first place?
