"Even if animal research resulted in a cure for AIDS, we'd be against it." - Ingrid Newkirk, National Director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

"I am not a morose person, but I would rather not be here. I don't have any reverence for life, only for the entities themselves. I would rather see a blank space where I am. This will sound like fruitcake stuff again but at least I wouldn't be harming anything." - Ingrid Newkirk, National Director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

"The passengers were scaredy-cats because they were mostly white. If the passengers had included black men those killers, with their puny bodies and unimpressive small knives, would have been crushed by the dudes." - Michael Moore on Flight 93

Why did you post this contest Arorrr? I am wasting entirely too much time finding idiotic quotes...

"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our Founding Fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well - by creating the international child of the future." - Professor Chester M. Pierce, M.D., Professor of Education and Psychiatry at Harvard

"The numbers we have right now suggest that about 1.6 to 2 percent of priests are sexually involved with minors sometime during their career. So what we see is this number is probably the same or maybe even less than in society. So it's not really a "priests" problem.´" - Father Stephen Rossetti

"There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."

"I'm the master of low expectations."

"I couldn't imagine somebody like Osama bin Laden understanding the joy of Hanukkah."

"The war on terror involves Saddam Hussein because of the nature of Saddam Hussein, the history of Saddam Hussein, and his willingness to terrorize himself."

BTW, mrchaos. What is SWIS anyway? I do not get it.


mchaos August 23 2005 5:36 PM EDT

it was an acronym for our high school's email/bulletin board service (School-Wide Information System) and he was trying to point out that it wasn't 'SWISS'. Since he started and ran the system, everyone (including me) thought it was really funny.

Galileo was no idiot. Only an idiot could believe that science requires martyrdom - that may be necessary in religion, but in time a scientific result will establish itself.
David Hilbert

[T]Vestax August 23 2005 7:21 PM EDT

J Carp. that sounds more like a witty joke and not a quote from an idiot. It refers to what we call people based on how they drive in comparison to ourselves. If they go slower then us, then we are likely to say something like, "look at this idiot".

[T]Vestax August 23 2005 7:27 PM EDT

In fact it does turn out to be the case that he is a comedian, and I may have heard this bit before from someplace.

V...its under i consider its a quote...

Arorrr August 23 2005 10:18 PM EDT

And the moment of "idiot quote" is.... *hold your breath*

Inferno for the famous DC Major...

Glory comes in second for his "Britney Spear" quote, but the runner up only get to win an acknowledgement.

BTW, J Carp. The quote should be George Collin, who is a famous stand-up comedian. He cracks me up all the time. HBO has his shows one in a while. I think he's the BEST comedian.

Thank all for playing.
