No idea if that's the right John Berry !

As for the quote, it doesn't quite work out right, does it ?

The bird referred to only alights on hands that don't grasp, but it would only discover if they did, or not, after it had landed !

Edward Teller [3].jpg
Edward Teller [actually Teller Ede] - Hungarian-American theoretical physicist who is known colloquially as "the father of the hydrogen bomb" (see the Teller–Ulam design), although he did not care for the title, considering it to be in poor taste.
Throughout his life, he was known both for his scientific ability & for his difficult interpersonal relations and volatile personality.
January 15, 1908 – September 9, 2003

I bought a record called "Sounds wasps make" but when playing it did not sound like wasps.
Then I realised I was playing the bee side.

Yes, it's like when religious faiths, whose members have to abide by their silly rules on how to live, try to impose them on others.

Jeph Jacques.jpg
Jeffrey Paul "Jeph" Jacques - US cartoonist who writes and draws the webcomics Questionable Content, Alice Grove, & DORD (& formerly "Indietits").
Born June 17, 1980


_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

At secondary modern school, the older boys said "Don't worry, the first time you're sent for the stick, the headmaster lets you off with a warning !"

When it was my 'first time' he never asked me & I got a stroke of the cane on each hand !

Haven't gotten over the injustice of it yet...

Those bastards ought to be hung drawn and quartered, or at the very least, put in the stocks and pelted with dog shit.

We had one at my school who took immense pleasure in beating the boys. I don't know what became of him, but I hope it was something nasty.
