People will ignore their misfortunes and their interests when they are in competition with their pleasures.

French Proverb

If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you. If you really make them think, they'll hate you.

Don Marquis

Young men think old men are fools, but old men know young men are fools.

George Chapman

I exist as pure energy, but you depend on food and water to survive. Frankly, I find it disgusting. Look at you. Look at you! Grinding up bits of plants and animals with your teeth. Secreting saliva to force it down your esophagus into a pit of digestive acids. You can't even stand to think about it yourself. What a repulsive creature you are! Constantly shedding your skin and hair, leaving your oily sweat on everything you touch! You think that you are the height of intellect in the universe but you are no better than any filthy animal and I am ashamed to be made in your image!

'Dejaren' from Star Trek: Voyager (Revulsion)

The average teenage girl says, "I absolutely hate haters and hypocrites!" Most of them cannot see the humor in that. They are what they hate.

Duane Alan Hahn

A stranger loses half his charm the day he is no longer a stranger.

Genevieve Antoine Dariaux

There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.

Warren Buffett

People can be divided into three classes, the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no idea what has happened.


There are two types of people. Those who come into a room and say, "Well, here I am!'' and those who come in and say, ''Ah, there you are.''

Frederick L. Collins

The ordinary man is an anarchist. He wants to do as he likes. He may want his neighbour to be governed, but he himself doesn't want to be governed. He is mortally afraid of government officials and policemen.

George Bernard Shaw

As for my reflections, what I think I'll most remember about the blackout: I guess it's the surprise, the surprise and wonderment of our leaders and the media that somehow there was no violence, that in 9 hours of darkness we didn't kill each other. What amazes me is have we really set the bar that low? Do we really as a nation and as a city deserve a gold star for not allowing a momentary power outage to instantly propel us towards cannibalism? What a night of people pulling together: "Hey, that guy helped direct traffic through an intersection instead of crushing my skull with a brick! He's a saint!"

Jon Stewart (from The Daily Show about the August 2003 blackout)

It is the nature of people to love, then destroy, then love again that which they value most.

God from Conversations with God (Book 1) (#ad) through Neale Donald Walsch

Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is, with thoughts of what may be.

John Dryden

All people have three characters, that which they exhibit, that which they have, and that which they think they have.

Alphonse Karr (adapted)

Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.


The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.

Charles F. Kettering

Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road.


A coward is a man in whom the instinct of self-preservation acts normally.



In Case You Didn't Know


Trump's Jab = Bad

Did you know that Trump's rushed experimental rona jab has less than one percent overall benefit? It also has many possible horrible side effects. Some brainwashed rona jab cultists claim that there are no victims of the jab, but person after person will post what the jab did to them, a friend, or a family member on web sites such as Facebook and Twitter and they'll be lucky if they don't get banned soon after. Posting the truth is “misinformation” don't you know. Awakened sheep might turn into lions, so powerful people will do just about anything to keep the sheep from waking up.

H Word and I Word = Good

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I have been taking those two supplements since summer of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses (or at least make them less severe).



B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking Jarrow B-Right (#ad) for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by Ken D Berry, William Davis, and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: Undoctored (#ad), Wheat Belly (#ad), and Eat Rich, Live Long (#ad).



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.


Eliminating farms and ranches, eating bugs, getting locked down in 15-minute cities, owning nothing, using digital currency (with expiration dates) that is tied to your social credit score, and paying higher taxes will not make things better and “save the Earth.” All that stuff is part of an agenda that has nothing to do with making the world a better place for the average person. It's all about control, depopulation, and making things better for the ultra-rich. They just want enough peasants left alive to keep things running smoothly.

How to Wake Up Normies

Charlie Robinson had some good advice about waking up normies (see the link to the video below). He said instead of verbally unloading or being nasty or acting like a bully, ask the person a question. Being nice and asking a question will help the person actually think about the subject.

Become a Better Human

Opinion by Duane Alan Hahn

Did you know that some people spit on the disabled? Some people also throw rocks at them and set them on fire:

People With Disabilities Open Up About Hate Crimes

Just in case nobody told you, if you're the kind of person who attacks the disabled, you are a horrible person. It doesn't matter if you get all puffed up by your toady friends and you believe that you're the king of the world and can do no wrong. You are wrong. Your little group is a cancer on society that must be transformed or destroyed.

Instead of attacking the disabled, how about choosing a different path? You can be a force for good. Your actions can improve the world instead of helping to make things worse.

If you refuse to change, one of your toadies may develop a conscience and decide that everyone in your group must die to make the world a better place. If you don't want to be poisoned, set on fire, or blown up, you better become a better human in a hurry.
