Sorry to go off topic, but I just had to put this here.

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Australia - "You mean there are other things apart from sport and beer?"

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

I know filthy, the joke was that "where?" is what most people say when you mention Liechtenstein, and therefore may as well be its motto.

I guess its not much of a joke when you have to explain it though...
