First step: allow yourself the possibility that you might have a different destiny or ... God forbid ... you can affect and change your own destiny.

Perhaps they never understand you because your reasoning makes no sense. Hmm...I sense I'm becoming part of the throng right about now.

Yes, Sting utters "All I see is an Atriedes I want to kill". He's awesome. "My blade...will finish you".
This is true. When I get into a great book, I can finish it in about a day or two and just want to move onto the next thing. Just not in the mood right now. Oh, thank you, I'll have to take you up on that.

I wish David Bowie was somehow in that movie. Somehow.

Come on Screwy, you can do better than that. I know many fundamentalist religious types who wouldn't even say that they're "destined" to be who they are, God or not.

Destiny is what you make it.

Correct. My computer is on 24/7 and one of the tabs I have open all the time is this thread. LiveJournal, this thread, Gmail, my Wikipedia watchlist, and Railpage Australia tend to be my five tabs that I always leave open.

Well, it's still a mess, but now it's at least got some context rather than just being a single disjointed sentence in cyberspace: Rail privatisation in New Zealand - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

(Who's shocked by the topic!)

Zoolander and Extras prove that David Bowie cameos are fucking epic.

No, I think adding "Lynne Kosky is the stupidest person in all Melbourne" would be considered adding a verifiable fact.

Ha, I assumed, but you never know. So, you get a Wiki alert when certain topics are modified?

And Labyrinth and The Prestige. Well, they're not cameos, but I love Bowie.
