Those familiar German sounding words at the beginning of Def Leppards ‘Rock of Ages’- what do they mean? Well, unless you consider Mutt Langian a language, they mean- nothing. Producer Mutt Lange, who had apparently grown weary of the traditional 1,2,3,4 count to start a take, threw out those made up words during a take. The band thought it was funny and decided to go with it. Example of proper use of Mutt Langian: Gunter: dig a hole Glieben: remove plant from pot Glauten: place plant in hole Globen: water well. All right. I got something to say.
Psychos love to hear each others psychoses; it makes them feel all warm and schizophrenic- Bondo
“I never said it would be easy- I only said it would be worth it” These are fantastic words that I have seen attributed to many through picture caption, especially Jesus. One day, as I read these words under a Jesus, I thought to myself ‘I don’t recall Jesus ever saying that?’ So I looked it up. And the author of the inspirational quote that extols the virtues of endurance and long suffering?- Mae West. Which makes me wonder- who really said it- “Come up and see me sometime”?

Flashback 80’s Aggie joke: The Aggie walked into the bar. He saw a pretty girl, and sat down and said ‘so how are things’. The young lady looked at the Aggie and decided to use a blunt approach ‘I’m fine. It is only fair for me to warn you that I am a lesbian.’ The Aggie thought for a moment and then said ‘oh okay. so how are things down in Beirut?’

The early phonographs- the ones with the horn for a speaker- didn’t have a volume control. It became common practice to place a piece of cloth into the horn to try and muffle the sound when lower volume was desired. A popular item for this was a sock- thus the expression “Put a sock in it”
Man does not live by bread alone. If you got bread man, you won’t be alone.
In many states, a person can be prosecuted for causing the death of the unborn. Scott Peterson, for example, was convicted for killing his pregnant wife Lacie and causing the death of the unborn child. So it is murder unless it is purposefully done by the mother, then it is abortion.

You cannot live a long life without having been forced to change your mind many times about people and things — including in some cases, your whole view of the world- Thomas Sowell

REM’s hit song from 1994- What’s the Frequency Kenneth?- is based upon a real 1986 event in which two assailants attacked Dan Rather, one of them asking him over and over while kicking and beating him “whats the frequency Kenneth?” The assailant was later convicted for murdering a stagehand at NBC studios- from whence he believed the low frequency waves being used to control him were emanating from.

Once, a merchant traveled a new road in search of new markets. Along the way, he passed a city. At the gate, there sat a little grinning devil. The merchant traveled along, and soon he passed an old man. The old man was accompanied by seven of the coarsest, ugliest devils you could imagine- yelling, taunting, berating him every step of the way. By and by, the merchant arrived at a market, and saw a familiar face, Jasper, from other markets. “How was your journey my friend?” asked Jasper. “All went well,” said the merchant. “Along the way I passed a very good city. The only evil in the city was a little devil, who hardly looked menacing, who had to sit on the gate without. Soon thereafter, I passed a very evil old man. He was accompanied by seven of the coarsest, most wicked devils.
“My friend,” said Jasper “you have got it all wrong I’m afraid. You see, the city you passed is a very wicked city- so wicked that it takes but one little innocuous devil to keep the whole city in subjection.
And the old man that you passed – he is so righteous that Satan has sent seven of his coarsest, most wicked devils to remove the man from his righteous path, but they are unable.”
