Favorite Quote:
"'If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight.' Sun Tzu said that. And I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it. Then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honour. Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth. And then he herded them onto a boat. And then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo!


. . . unless it's a farm!" ~ Soldier (TF2)


I'm thinkin' that we're thinkin' everything's all right
While you're thinkin' what I'm speakin' is something not quite right
And I'm thinkin' that we're thinkin' everything's okay
But what you're doin' is misreadin' everything I say

So why don't you tell me what's on your mind
So I can explain one word at a time
How everything you're thinking is wrong

Why does everything I say have a certain meaning and
Everything you hear is something completely different
And it's as if you never truly understand
Do I need to speak sign language

We were talkin' the other day and you said somethin' that made
Me come up with a couple questions that I could correlate
But for some reason you were thinkin' my words were meant to sting
And now you're holdin' a grudge against me while I'm left wondering

So what did I do to make you mad
I just am trying to understand
Why everything you're thinking is wrong

Why does everything I say have a certain meaning and
Everything you hear is something completely different
And it's as if you never truly understand
Do I need to speak sign language

Now it may be that I'm really the culprit here
Because of how it sounds when I say things
And I may need to practice the art of tactfulness
But you've no need to be carping
