"The motor starts up with a crackling hiss that deepens quickly. The
brilliant exhaust jet is studded by "mach diamonds" - the dramatic mark of
high engine efficiency. In the plasma-like exhaust, they stand out like
pearls on a string. Just before burnout the diamonds crowd together and
disappear one by one back up the nozzle."

found that defendant Jerry Irvine breached a contract with each of the
Plaintiffs..." --- Honorable Burt Henson, Judge of the Superior Court
"With respect to Plaintiffs claim for conversion, the jury found that
Jerry Irvine interfered with the money and profits of Powertech as to
each of the Plaintiffs; that a portion and share of the money and
profits of Powertech interfered with by defendant Jerry Irvine, was a
portion and share which was owned, due or should have been fairly
distributed to each of the Plaintiffs; that defendant Jerry Irvine took
the money and profits of Powertech exclusively for himself without
sharing it with his partners, and without sharing it each of the
Plaintiffs..." -- Honorable Burt Henson, Judge of the Superior Court
"With respect to Plaintiffs claim for fraud and deceit, it was
stipulated and agreed that as to each of the Plaintiffs, that cause of

the time that defendant Jerry Irvine made the promise, that Defendant
Jerry Irvine did not intend to perform it as to each of the Plaintiffs;

This was fun...then it turned into a "beat the shit out of Jerry" thread.
Damn guys, sometimes it's like a bunch of "Tommy One notes" around here.
Can't we at least be clever and talk about something new?
Here's a fun quote, from a Chinese spammer:
"Newest moving is stored , the price is low , capacity is large , can
be according to the needs of yours the wanton size of adjustment
capacity. This kind of equipment is to move a hard disk of boxes.
Moving the box appearance of the hard disk exquisitly, succeed through
alloy material, anti-vibration is designed , to dispel the heat is
good, little volume, easy to hold under the arm and bring and to
install is convenient, Namely insert and use USB interface promptly,
This next one is from the instruction sheet which came with a string of
"You will plug and invert. Sparking is badness."
Then there's these classic gems from the 1962 Honda Cub Instruction
"1. At the rise of the hand by Policeman, stop rapidly. Do not pass
him by or otherwise disrespect him.
2. When a passenger of the foot, hooves in sight, tootle the horn
trumpet melodiously at first. If he still obstacles your passage,
tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth, warning Hi, Hi.
3. Beware of the wandering horse that he shall not take fright as you
pass him. Do not explode the exhaust box at him. Go soothingly by.
4. Give big space to the festive dog that makes sport in roadway. Avoid
entanglement of dog with wheel spokes.
5. Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
Press the brake foot as you roll around the corners, and save the
collapse and tie up."
This is one of my favorite quotes:
"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills a woman, and
then teams up with three strangers to kill again."
