The rotation of the Earth really makes my day.
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

“I spent half my money on gambling, alcohol and wild women. The other half I wasted.” ― WC Fields.

One of my favorite quotes of his.   Another one is from the scene at a candy store,  something like,  "Little kids standing around reeking of lollipops and candy, get out of here you bother me".

WC was the best, the one I liked was his mother In law was cranking at him one morning,
She says"why, you're drunk"
He says "yes, yes I am. And you're crazy. Tomorrow I'll be sober and you ,  you will be crazy for the rest of your life!"
"The SOHC4 uses a computer located about 2-3 ft above the seat.  Those sometimes need additional programming." -stolen from  Two Tired

If that 'truth' about you hurt, you probably just learned something useful.
The demons are repulsed when a man does good. Use that.
Blood is thicker than water, but motor oil is thicker yet...so, don't mess with my SOHC4, or I might have to hurt you.

My first boxing coach told me "boxing is like swimming you cant do it without getting wet. You dont have to do a dam cannonball into the pool. MOVE YOUR HEAD SOMETIMES"
 Never was a elusive fighter, I've always been the banger.

I know a guy addicted to brake fluid, but it's OK he can stop anytime.

I'm reading a book about anti gravity, I can't put it down.
