Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

He coined the term "mod".

So, my blue scooter is in the shop. Hopefully, it will be all up and awesome by the end of the day. Yesterday evening was lovely. I saw "True Romance" with Kim and Aaron, on Jesse's flat screen. Jesse had to work. So, Kim decided to experiment on me with some Jiffy Pop popcorn, since I find microwave popcorn to be vile. Jiffy Pop is so much better than microwave popcorn. Not only does it taste better, but it is a more satisfying and engaging experience to prepare it.

Faster is not always better.

Ah, yeah... True Romance. True Romance is one of the most violent movies I have ever seen. That being said, every scene is its own microcosm, strung together with the finest of threads. I only wish there was more Samuel L. Jackson.

Ah, Crap. Kim, I left important papers at your house. We shall discuss.

Wasn't that a romantic movie? Would you kill my pimp without me having to ask?

Yes, I would plant drugs on him, and then spread rumors about him being a child rapist in prison. Work smarter, not harder.

But Scoot, sometimes a lady likes when her man isn't afraid to get a little blood on his thin, pasty hands.
