Two from my best buddy, Isom:

He's so dumb, he couldn't poor piss out of a boot even if the instructions were written on the heel.

If it costs a nickle to sh#t, I'd have to throw up.

On Mikhail Tal by his first wife:
Misha was so ill-equipped for living... When he travelled to a tournament, he couldn't even pack his own suitcase... He didn't even know how to turn on the gas for cooking. If I had a headache, and there happened to be no one home but him, he would fall into a panic: "How do I make a hot-water bottle?" And when I got behind the wheel of a car, he would look at me as though I were a visitor from another planet. Of course, if he had made some effort, he could have learned all of this. But it was all boring to him. He just didn't need to. A lot of people have said that if Tal had looked after his health, if he hadn't led such a dissolute life... and so forth. But with people like Tal, the idea of "if only" is just absurd. He wouldn't have been Tal then.

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure." Helen Keller

^^ Yes, folks - this is the woman I love. And yes, it really *IS* her favourite quote.

Lawsy lawsy lawsy.... We're off to Bon Echo climbing this weekend, 85m high right out of Mazinaw Lake, access via canoe. Looks like I have to step out of Free Climbing Retirement. Terrifying.....
