I was made stupid so God would have a reliable friend to ask him or her for help once at least once in a while.
I’m pretty sure only God knows the difference between accomplice and negotiator.
In the Garden of Eden, before the apple of knowledge was bitten, money existed but was not used for things like impure thoughts, since they didn’t exist either. Therefore, bookkeeping must have existed before the other old profession.
the temptation to plug your sayings that you think will be quoted “greatly” centuries later. Avoid plugging anything that has nothing related to the plot.

Sports with violent contact are a risky endeavor. I do not engage in heavy contact-sports, nor do I condone any of it. However, I would like to draw attention to a related topic- gender inequality in film. It could be said that The Rocky I-V series was a period piece about the Cold War-at least Rocky IV. But what is to say of the gender equivalent? Million Dollar Baby featured a German (East or West) Billie “The Blue Bear” Osterman and Mary Margaret “Maggie” Fitzgerald. Perhaps it is a subtle nod to a world-series matchup of differing cultures. Or, it could be said that the protagonist- ostensibly, a proper Westerner, lost simply because she was the lesser-valued female. Perhaps screenwriters let the “dirty” “Blue Bear win because she was more liked by males. Has this theory been tested? In Rocky II, The American loses to Russia, but in the Rocky IV rematch, the American wins- it may have been just a symbolic gesture as an economic and political defeat of the Soviet Union, however, a male was able to win. It is almost imperative that a rematch of Million Dollar Baby occurred, with the proper minority winning a fair representation in her capabilities, or at least a “dirty” fighter be penalized or disqualified. The fighter, Maggie, did not lose the fight against the Blue Bear, but lost because she fell over an improperly placed stool in the corner of the ring and became a paralyzed paraplegic. Maybe it was a cop-out to avoid saying who should win when subliminally the male writer wanted the politically incorrect Blue Bear to win. This is not to say a movie can’t be realistic and depict those who win unfairly or by default, but there should be no conscious effort to glamorize them. The intersection of inequality also crosses minorities of other types, including gender, disability, orientation, and race. It would be fair to say some other movies have attempted to bridge the gap in providing equal representation, but not many.
Sartre abandoned his love affair with communism after seeing Cuba’s treatment of gays. So my spiel is, as long as communism welcomes a gay party, I have no beef with them. Or any government. That includes all orientations in between straight and gay.
