Personal quotes


"What would happen if you melted? You know, you never really hear this talked about much, but spontaneous combustion? It exists!...(people) burn from within...sometimes they'll be in a wooden chair and the chair won't burn, but there'll be nothing left of the person. Except sometimes his teeth. Or the heart. No one speaks about this, but its for real."

"My name can't be *that* tough to prounounce"

"When I don't feel free and can't do what I want I just react. I go against it."

When told, "You'll just have to bite the bullet", his reply was, "Yes, but I don't have to eat the whole rifle"

"I'm a meathead man. You've got smart people, and you've got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb."

"I'm sorry my existence is not very noble or sublime."
