I'll have to depart from personal quotes for this one:


There is one, and only one, Doomsday prophecy which I actually believe is true. As prophecied by the great humor-fantasy author Terry Pratchett, the end of the world will be immediately preceded by the setence "I wonder what happens if I do this..."

Anyone seen Lady in the Water by Night Shayamalan? I love the last words by the writer with the glasses. I dont remember the exact thing but its that he believes that every story nowadays is the same. And he sees a wolf or something.. and he starts to narrate how he would turn his back, and rush to the door, and with split second accuracy the door would hit the creature and hurt him.

But when he turns his back.. he just dies. :D

IF taht didnt make sense.. watch the movie. lol.


OK.. .so how abt this?

how cold could it be in antartica? Im wearing a thin jacket.

WTF was that????

"And as we can see here, I am precariously poised atop this sleeping volcano. At any second now, she could erup--"


That makes me think Steve Irwin will give us some great famous last words eventually, we'll just have to wait for them.

IIRC, these actually were the last words of someone immediately before a battle: "There's no way they could hit anything at this dist-"


Actually it was "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."


General John Sedgwick, Battle of Spotsylvania.


Not his final words, and not cut off, though it makes for a good story. He died shortly after uttering them. http://www.civilwarhome.com/sedgwickdeath.htm

Greedo: THUD.





For shame, CPL.Luke.
