Courage, Brains and Heart

I'll be in Las Vegas October 23-27, returning October 27 evening.
I will be watching from 40000 feet and other locations, so behave...


I'll be leaving some things for my fellow Moderators to use while I am gone.

First for Myk (Avel du)... a brain.

Why, anybody can have a brain. That's
a very mediocre commodity. Every
pusillanimous creature that crawls
on the earth -- or slinks through
slimy seas has a brain!
Back where
I come from we have universities,
seats of great learning -- where men
go to become great thinkers.
And when they come out, they think
deep thoughts -- and with no more
brains than you have.... But! They
have one thing you haven't got! A
diploma!
Therefore, by virtue of the authority
vested in me by the Universitatus
Committeeatum e plurbis unum, I hereby
confer upon you the honorary degree
of Th.D.
Dr. of
Thinkology!


For Len (LeonardoDaBenz)....courage.

As for you, my
fine friend -- you're a victim of
disorganized thinking. You are under
the unfortunate delusion that simply
because you run away from danger,
you have no courage. You're confusing
courage with wisdom. Back where I
come from, we have men who are called
heroes. Once a year, they take their
fortitude out of mothballs and parade
it down the main street of the city.
And they have no more courage than
you have. But! They have one thing
that you haven't got! A medal!
Therefore -- for meritorious
conduct, extraordinary valor,
conspicuous bravery against wicked
witches, I award you the Triple Cross.

For Tim (Woz53)...Heart

As for you, my galvanized friend,
you want a heart! You don't know
how lucky you are not to have one.
Hearts will never be practical until
they can be made unbreakable. I could
have been a world figure, a power
among men, a - a successful wizard,
had I not been obstructed by a heart.
...back where I come from there are
men who do nothing all day but good
deeds. They are called phil...er --
er -- phil -- er, yes...good-deeddoers.
And their hearts are no bigger
than yours. But! They have one
thing you haven't got! A testimonial!
Therefore, in consideration of your
kindness, I take pleasure at this
time in presenting you with a small
token of our esteem and affection.
And remember, my sentimental
friend....
...that a heart is not judged by how
much you love, but by how much you
are loved by others.


Good people of SLKWorld,
I, your Wizard par ardua ad alta, am
about to embark upon a hazardous and
technically unexplainable journey
into the outer stratosphere.
To confer, converse, and otherwise
hob-nob with my brother wizards.
And I hereby decree that until what
time -- if any -- that I return, Avel du, by virtue of his highly
superior brains, shall rule in my
stead...assisted by Woz53,by
virtue of his magnificent heart...and
LeonardoDaBenz, by virtue of his courage!
Obey them as you would me!

Nothing, not even the forum, can drag me from my chocolate cake.

But this one has the best topping of all!

Enjoy your break my friend.

I'm sure the gang will behave...ROFL
