Or they're written by Quentin Tarantino:

Jules: There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you. I been sayin' that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never really questioned what it meant. I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before you popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice. Now I'm thinkin': it could mean you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could be you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be a shepherd.

^I think you can pay pretty much anything with your cell phone today.

As for Bono's speeches, I am particularly moved by the Miracle Drug speech. There is one where he showed his rosary and talked about meeting the pope and how we can "make God smile" and that "God is a fan of science". I thought this was very special.

That plus he said you can bet on sports teams with your phone.

I didn't even know such a service existed, unless he's referring to a direct line to the TAB

^Here you can play the lottery, pay for your train ticket or take part in all kinds of games in competitions via cell phone, there are many services. I don't do it because I am quite old-fashioned when it comes to mobile communications, I just don't have the right phone, but I know that a lot of this stuff is possible. So I don't think Bono was just joking.

bono's speeches are mundane and pedestrian, he hardly transcends the third thoughtplane at all and besides, what dredgery of existence must we partake in order to suffer the illusory mendacity of reality? he never answers this clearly. leave the thoughtsphere explorations for true mindbeings.

i don't know anybody who uses the internet on their phone to pay bills.

all i'm saying is to me, it doesn't make logistical sense. first of all what is a gas bill? i don't get a gas bill that comes in the mail regularly from sheetz. i pay my gas with my debit card or cash. it is a charge, just like going to the liquor store. i don't get a liquor bill for buying liquor at a store.

now, i know you can call the electric company or somebody to pay one of THOSE bills. but i've never had a GAS bill to pay, nor do i think they exist.

i'm just trying to either a) find out how it is possible to pay a GAS BILL (which i'm not convinced exists) on the phone b) discover that bono was probably talking out of his ass and just trying to come up with a list of things to pay

Okay, this thread is getting clearly derailed now, but I just want to say that I am getting a gas bill every three months to pay and yes, I can pay it via internet.

Plenty of people still use gas to heat their homes, therefore people still have gas bills. And yes many people use the internet on their phones to pay bills. My friend is attached to his phone and hasn't touch a "real" computer in months.

i'm sure you can pay anything via telephone and a credit card nowadays.


as regards to the quote saying
the best bono speech is none at all

while this may be true
we all know he is going to give a speech
about something
somewhere along the line in the concert

whether it be about keeping it real and no bullshit for you/us (popmart)

the song
about letting go of somebody
you dont want to let go of
(kite)
or thanks for spending hard earned
on rock show (one)
-elevation

or miracle drug's unicorn typist,
africa africa africa

or the little suicide speech/dedication before 12/4's stuck

he will speak

and i was just curious as to everybodys
favorite bono speeches

from this past tour.

I love Bono's speeches, not all of them the same, but to me, Bono wouldn't be Bono and U2 wouldn't be U2 without these speeches - or "ramblings" as some say.

clearly you haven't heard the Bono speech where he goes "It's alright to be arty now and then you know...if you put a p on that you get party! That's kinda cool."

that's what you'd call "sucient genius" ))>.bonoismorevisionarythanyouknowdonotjudgemeremortalxx{
