Welcome to the personal space of Don Quixotic
Thanks for stopping by. Take a look around and make yourself at home, just shut the lights off when you're done. Oh, and be sure to leave me a quick reply before you go, even if it's just to say 'hey', I'd still like to know you dropped in.
About the H2G2 Community
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'" - Jack Kerouac
That quote pretty much sums up how I feel about this site and the people on it. It's a mad enterprise and I'm excited to be part of it. My name is Don, I'm 38, and I live in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA, which is a lot more interesting than you probably think. I'm currently self-underemployed and I spend most of my free time riding my bike or drinking Guinness at my local pub. My favorite color, and my towel, are green. Here are some more quotes by people who have said things better than could.
About the Guide
"Whatever talents a person may possess to amuse or instruct others, be they ever so inconsiderable, he is yet bound to exert them: if his attempt be ineffectual, let the punishment of an unaccomplished purpose have been sufficient; let none trouble themselves to heap the dust of oblivion upon his efforts; the pile they raise will betray his grave which might otherwise have been unknown." - Jim Sundeen
"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people." - Karl Marx
"Death should be held of no account, for it brings but two alternatives; either it utternly annihilates the peron and his soul, or it transports the spirit or soul to someplace where it will live forever. What then should a good man fear if death will bring only nothingness or eternal life." - Marcus Tullius Cicero
"While there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free." - Eugene Victor Debs
"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." - Freidrich Nietzsche
"There can be no daily democracy without daily citizenship." - Ralph Nader
