"They trust me. Dumb fucks." - Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with
the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the
same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult.
To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is
to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will;
to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals."
- C. S. Lewis
"There has grown up in the minds of certain groups in this country
the notion that because a man or corporation has made a profit out of the
public for a number of years, the government and the courts are charged
with the duty of guaranteeing such profit in the future, even in the face
of changing circumstances and contrary to the public interest.
This strange doctrine is not supported by statute nor common law.
Neither individuals nor corporations have any right to come into court and
ask that the clock of history be stopped, or turned back."
- Life-Line by Robert A. Heinlein, 1939

Teleport beams across the autumn night
the future is full of marvels
still no cure for baldness

www.Rotary13B1.com is a great shop that sells all kinds of Mazda Rotary Engine themed goodies, some parts and supplies, jewelry, t-shirts, and some stuff for other cars. I've bought a bunch of things from them over the years and have been very happy with both the quality and the service. Please consider giving them your business.
