"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Here is an interesting little twist of language, at least to me it's interesting. A palindrome is a word, line, verse, and so forth, that reads the same forward and backward. Here is an example: A man, a plan, a canal, Panama! Here it is again all in lower case and without punctuation: amanaplanacanalpanama. Another example is: Madam, I'm Adam. Do you know of any other palindromes? Can you make up any of your own? (I admit, neither of the two examples above are my creation.)

I'm a photographer, so this one gave me a chuckle:

Oh, cameras are macho
