This thread created to keep and preserve all the memorable quotes and aphorisms ever said by this forum members. Feel free to post here the pearls of other's (not your own!) wisdom... or other's madness :) So far i can post three quotes that immediatelly coming to mind:

 

 

"Countries evolve, their borders change. America won't be the exception. China won't be either. And especially your sweet Mother Russia." - Raklian, 31 October 2013

 

Although sounds trivial, this is actually the very accurate prediction of accession of Crimea that took place six months later.

 

 

"If you don't see how Soviet endeavors to create a human-chimp hybrid are evidence of a Marxist love of low intelligence, then you can't be reasoned with" - Voluntarist, 20 October 2015

 

No comment...

 

 

"Violence is the only thing that has ever brought about real social change. Slavery, apartheid, fascism, colonialism, these things weren't overthrown by peaceful marches and petitions; they were overthrown with guns and bombs" - Joe00uk, 17 February 2016

 

Amazingly rough and expressive, but essentially, very true thought not everyone dares to voice.

"This is the typical behavior and self-excuse of our homegrown "liberals": if someone is disagree with them - they immediately stop the debate saying that opponent is simply "dumb and brainwashed". Very comfortable position, btw, allows them to feel yourself the "intellectual elite" resistant to this mythical "brainwashing". By "free discussion" they only mean the free discussion of some nuances of their ideology. If you go further and cross the red line, you're just getting banned and kicked out from "liberal" forum... tested on my own skin.

 

And then the "intellectual elite" are fail to understand why the majority of people despise them or making fun on them." - PhoenixRu, 19 August 2015

 

This is definitely one of my favourite quotes of this forum and the number of times this has proven itself to be true since is staggering.

On Italian UFO's thread: "What kind of new pleasures we may create in the future?"

 

"I suppose it depends entirely on how you define pleasure.

 
"If you are talking about the four F s (fight, flight, food and reproduction) type of pleasure, there will likely be plenty of that.
Zero g  martial arts competitions, asteroid cluster capture the flag in space suits, VR mortal combat, VR dinosaur hunts.
 
Jail break style man tracker challenges, survival games where you are loaded into a scenario of a disabled ship drifting into a sun and you have to find the way to get out and have the best chance of survival.
 
Using artificial tounges to taste what toxic things would taste like and then trying to make recipes with sulphuric acid and uranium as flavors and eat them in VR, or taste liquid hydrogen or molten rock, learn the flavor of cultured human flesh and the best way to prepare it, grow foods that have never existed before.
 
And for the last ... see the miriad fetishes on the internet, and imagine being able to safely and annonymously try them all out, even just once to see if  you might understand why others might like it.
 
"If we include other things like reading, movies, smells, and games; then there are an infinitude of options; even more so if all the future is included.
swim across the surface of a red dwarf star.
wear clothes mad with cut and polished solid CO2 gems,
see the entire electromagnetic spectrum and use it to watch the visual symphany of a stellar system conjuction of planets.
be a wizard in a campaign against the dark dragon Garthaynoth in person on the fantasy planet.
quick evolve an octopus to be able to have conversations with it over tea.
experience you favorite books in person by being the main character. maybe even rewrite the story by changing the course of events.
give yourself super powers (though unless you're on a planet where others choose not to have powers or artificial people are made to resemble powerless people it wouldn't mean much because everybody could have them) and go around being a hero.
be able to cut off and arm or other body part and still have it live, move and feel like it did before only able to do it from across the room.
swap body parts or whole bodies with people.
sky dive from space.
be two people at the same time.
become a liquid.
 
 
"for me the idea of just turning on the pleasure centers of the brain would feel hollow. Some of my greatest pleasure are things that has good stories to them and fond memories, not just a feeling."

Yes, please read...as well as my rebuttal.


The principles of justice define an appropriate path between dogmatism and intolerance on the one side, and a reductionism which regards religion and morality as mere preferences on the other.   - John Rawls

"Ironically, I think that existence can be equated to a negative number (because as Zeitgeist123 eloquently said, great experiences of life are simply islands in the cosmic ocean of struggles and suffering. Everyone that exists almost always suffers; happiness and pleasure are just fragile flashes of ever-transient flicking flame), and non-existence can be equated to 0, so non-existence is greater, so childbirth-causing sexual intercourse should be banned around the world, because it is severely immoral"  - Tina, 28 February, 2016

"This thread may have destroyed some of my faith in humanity, but at least its entertaining.
 
MarcZ: Lets discuss normal people things & such.
 
Phoenix: Blah
Ralikan: Blah
Phoenix: You'd kill an imaginary child!
Ralikan: You lie! See a psychologist!
 
Awkward silence

'Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.'

"Capitalism at its best is the most efficient, though. It's more of a matter of economics - how resources are best utilized and allocated, rather than politics."- Raklian
"Capitalism is a necessary evil in a world dogged by resource scarcity. Some of us can live with that."- Raklian

I'm a middle eastern OG, fuck the west side. While you younguns were still in your diapers, I was out there, finding the truth; making the truth boy. Get on my level.
