    "If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with." - Lao Tse, 500 BCE

    “... what a horse does under compulsion he does blindly, and his performance is no more beautiful than would be that of a ballet-dancer taught by whip and goad.“

    We are all on death row.
    People who believe that the universe was created by an intelligent deity should pay closer attention to the evening news.

    "People ask me why I write horror stories," said Stephen King.

    "I tell them it's because I have the heart of a little boy. And I keep it in a jar on my desk."

    When did Joe Rogan become a guru? He spent the first half of his life getting kicked in the head and the second part dousing himself in mind altering drugs

    Chewing tobacco, for people that think smoking is gross, but doesn't involve enough spit.

It's largely disappeared since the decision in the early 1980s to allow regional accents on BBC news broadcasts. It's that obsolete accent that most Americans think of as "the British accent"; Oddly many of the people who most famously spoke with that accent were born outside Britain, in places such as Jamaica and India where the BBC World Service was popular.

    And if you want to know what "Fuck off" sounds like in RP, read it forwards, correctly. Or get Trinidadian broadcaster (and master of the accent) Trevor McDonald to tell you to fuck off.
    Naw, I hear Peppa Pig saying it like the Meme says.
