In reality, you only need 2 items in your 'around the house' toolbox.

Duct Tape and WD-40

If it moves and it shouldn't -- use Duct Tape
If it should move but, it doesn't -- use the WD-40

:lol: works for me

Just 1 question: does topic name means this about man's quotes only or men like people?
Because I know some very clever women also :idea:

...much cleverer than some men... :wink:
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.

A very significant comment, Elisa. :)
I hope that the new heading for the topic will correct our omission.

A belated welcome to the Mint forum too. :)
Cheers,

Genuine, sound capital accumulates in a country in no other way than by being based upon a general labor prosperity; otherwise only capital owned by kulaks and Jews can come into existence. And thus it shall be if the people will not come to their senses and the intelligentsia will not help them. If the people should fail to come to their senses, they, as a whole, will find themselves in a very short time in the hands of all sorts of Jews, and in such an event no commune is going to save them : there will be merely uniformly equal paupers, mortgaged and enslaved as a whole commune, while, in their stead, Jews and kulaks will be providing the money for the budget. There will emerge petty, depraved and mean little bourgeois, and a countless number of paupers enslaved by them--such will be the picture! Yiddishers will be soaking up the blood of the people and subsisting on their debauch and humiliation; inasmuch, however, as they--these Yiddishers--will provide money for the budget, they will have to be supported. This is a bad, horrible dream and, praised be the Lord, it is merely a fancy! - Fyodor Dostoevsky

Entire ignorance is not so terrible or extreme an evil, and is far from being the greatest of all; too much cleverness and too much learning, accompanied with ill bringing-up, are far more fatal.

Some more quotes : A man can be short and dumpy and getting bald but if he has fire, women will like him.
My theory is that men are no more liberated than women.
