"I had rather be a canker in his hedge than a rose in his grace, and it better fits my blood to be disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob love from any: In this, though I cannot be said to be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied that I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and seek not to alter me."
- William Shakespeare, _Much Ado About Nothing_

"Make no friends with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul."
Proverbs 22:24-25 (KJV)

"The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are."
- HL Mencken

"Too many people in this gutless world have come under the impression that writers are a race of finks, queers and candy asses to be bilked, cheated and mocked as a form of commercial sport. It should be noted, therefore, in the public interest, that some writers possess .44 Magnums and can puncture beer cans with 240-grain slugs from that weapon at a distance of 150 yards."
-Dr. Hunter S Thompson

"You are a sick, twisted, sadistic, monsterous fuck. But you know, these are your finer qualities."

"I was told when I grew up I could be anything I wanted: a fireman, a policeman, a doctor-- even President, it seemed. And for the first time in the history of mankind, something new, called an astronaut. But like so many kids brought up on a steady diet of Westerns, I always wanted to be the avenging cowboy hero-- that lone voice in the wilderness, fighting corruption and evil wherever I found it, and standing for freedom, truth and justice. And in my heart of hearts I still track the remnants of that dream wherever I go, in my endless ride into the setting sun."
-Bill Hicks, _Revelations_

And yet amazingly, it still stands, and no one gets flung to their well-deserved deaths.

Best. Ride. Ever.

"Well deserved"? Where is this, Coney Island or the sixth concentric circle of Dante's Hell?

bronxelf says:

Nige- If you want to see what riding the cyclone is like you can view it here(linky)

And I can (and have, many many times) done the whole ride with no hands.

bronxelf says:

I shot that last year, with Wombat527- that's his wrist on my left. He'd never been to Coney Island, which clearly needed to be corrected.

Apparently I've surprised a few people lately by being a rides person, but I love roller coasters.

This one is great fun. Really throws you around.
