You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Seems like quite a dignified question.  Get out.

Why is there no space between Bluf and Purdi despite the capital letter?

The answer to James' question is simple, I do not know.  It just seemed appropriate and it stuck. 

But POOT?  Disappointed mon.

I've got a non-toilet related question. It's about travelling.

Ahem.

When you're travelling in a foreign country and you stay at a hotel, do you abide by the signs in the toilet which say don't flush toilet paper? Are you supposed to put s***-stained toilet paper in the bin? :lol:

:lol: yeah, that’s fairly common I’ve found. They should have a little bin next to the toilet for your s*** rags, in addition to the normal trash bin.

FYI if you’re going to Chile, they operate on the doodoo bucket system.

DNA? Its a bone of contention. Jack Horner had to saw through a 65 million year old T Rex thigh bone, to get it on a helicopter. They noticed it had soft tissue still in the deepest part of the bone. From this, it is speculated, that DNA can be harvested. I dont know what happenned further but it seems like DNA can survive 65 million years under the right circumstances.

No.  Overture to Marriage of Figaro for me, like.  Obvious choice but I'm not a huge Mozart fan tbh

Its generally completely f***ed after a couple of million years.  Starts to degrade earlier than that, although you won't get a really good sequence from it.  Also depends on how it's stored - spunk on a motel bed will degrade a lot faster than dna from a frozen mammoth.

Human DNA should still be readable - Richard III was identified from his dna and he's been dead over 500 years.

As a slightly related note, does anyone know a murderer? 

Other than Branko, obviously.

I know someone who's killed someone, just not murder. Younger sister's best friend ran over a sheriff's wife while DUI. Said wife was herself intoxicated as a pedestrian on a 6 lane highway.

edit: This was a decade or so ago. She got a few years for vehicular homicide. Was really torn up about it for a long time. Has gotten on with her life now.
