"I'm sorry Augustin, I just didn't know.
I tried to resist, but the urge was too great. Not very manly of me I'm ashamed to admit.
You are right of course.
C'mon people. Don't feed the trolls, no matter how funny it is."

Ommegang is from upstate NY, and I can't get enough. If I had to pick one it would be their "Three-Philosophers Ale" it's a Belgian Quadruple…"
"I just spent an hour of my time reading this, and not only was it hysterical, but I loved every minute of it. Thank you josh for being such an obvious, and unrepentant troll. Watching Jack Bauer, Average Joe, and honestly almost everyone just…"
"Jack I can't reply to your comment so I'll try here.
You just word for word quoted my favorite observation. "Throwing tables is a viable option."
I know that in all likelihood you are a man, and that I am very much attracted to…"
"We should all try to understand each others paths in life but sadly some people just want to mock and ridicule others for having alternative views on things that is what I cannot stand. -Josh Allen
Religion is nothing more than a control system…"
"Joe the metric system is a prison of the mind, and the fact that you are defending it shows that you are just another one of the helpless sheeple clinging to a prison you cannot see and do not completely understand. Unlike me, I totally get…"
"Why can't we upvote on this forum? I really want to upvote the hell out of this. If we could upvote I would create multiple emails, and multiple accounts and sign in and upvote this over and over and over again. Then I would comment about how i…"
"FIGHTING URGE TO ENGAGE..... ah damnit, I guess my religion has brainwashed me into defending it. Oh well, here I go.
Would you mind telling us which oppressive free-thought-restricting religion you managed to escape from. Also, how were…"

There are way too many great quotes to pick just one. I'm somewhat of a quote collector, and I pull them out all the time. For some reason, when the great Men and Women of History say something people give it more attention. But there is one quote I use the most. I might even say it's my favorite.
