    Favorite signature lines?

    What are your favorite signature lines on BFN? There are quite a few that get me to chuckle or even get me to think, but here's my personal all time favorite:

    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard, by stonecrd. I just crack up every time I read it!

    One of my favorites is from Nermal... I actually sent a PM to say that every time I see it I chuckle...

    "Someday, we'll look back on all this and plow right into a parked car."

    Another is a Groucho Marx quote, I forget who uses it (I'll try to remember to edit this when I notice it again)... something like:

    "Thank you for the enjoyment you've taken out of it."
    Slow Ride Cyclists of NEPA

    I have a couple of favorites, unfortunately I can not remember to whom the credit goes:

    “I have a photographic memory....unfortunately I am out of film....”

    “How do I know what I think until I hear what I say?”

    “They're beautiful handsome machines that translate energy into joy.”
    "Beautiful, handsome machines that translate energy into joy."

    I've seen a corrollary to that one somewhere: Someone shoulda put more chlorine in his gene pool.

    There are so many good ones that I rotate mine--all other peoples' words. Among my favorites:

    You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough. -Mae West

    A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding. -Marshall McLuhan

    A comprehended god is no god. -John Chrysostom

    Until we are all free, we are none of us free. -Emma Lazarus

    Those are my principles and if you don't like them ...well, I have others. -Groucho Marx (or was it Karl?)
    Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

    -Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Some time ago I used "I never let sound logic stand in the way of my plans".

    Don't remember where that came from.

    I don't have a sig on this forum, but I use this one on my personal e-mail:
    I would rather regret what I did do than regret what I didn't do.

    I think of it when I get jitters about doing solo bike tours in Europe. My two trips turned out great and I only regret that I didn't do more when I was younger. Hoping to get in 2 or 3 more while I am still in my 60s.

    Don't let what you can't do, stop you from doing what you can do.

    +1. I actually commissioned it onto a T-shirt.

    An all-time favorite quote of mine is from Lee Trevino, "The older I get, the better I used to be."

    And then there's the age old question: "If a man speaks in the forest and there is no women to hear him, is he still wrong?"

    When the group encounters a long downhill and I'm the only "bent" I find it humorous to hollar out in my best Jim Carey voice, "Somebody Stop Me" as I blow past everyone. It must be annoying since no one has ever laughed.

    My boss currently uses, "Reality is the main cause of stress among those who subscribe to it"

    And I like the cerebral one "Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien." from Voltaire.

    Not a sig line, but I used to have a T-shirt from St. Louis Recumbents with a picture of a bicycle seat on the back and underneath the pic, it said "Does it hurt, yet?"

    That seems to apply to this forum a lot.

    Now if you could ONLY explain why there hasn't been enough time since the earth was formed until now for chance mutations to have developed the extensive gene pool we presently see.
