    By the way : Who is in line for Quote no. 7000, Jan . . . would that be Glindros ?
    I think Marsden should have the honor this time. So let's keep this going, shall we?

    Oh, and for those interested in the hisorical aspects of this thread, I began this little conversation at 04-02-2007, 07:36 PM so it's been ongoing, with a few fairly short gaps for almost FIVE YEARS!

    I think we should all take a bow!

      I collect secrets: black projects, conspiracies, secret organizations. They fascinate me.

      (Hurray to all of us! Can't wait to see what it is. Ok Marsden, no pressure for an amazing quote)

        "And what kind of head of Security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I mean, I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."
        "Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

        "I try never to get involved in my own life, too much trouble."

          "It's good to see you down here again. Didn't know whether you'd still hang around with us grunts now that you've been promoted."
          "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "
