     There is an unrecognized tyranny to uncertainty.

                               ***

     When the combination between the knower and the knowledge is 
just right, revolutionist data can work not unlike a psychedelic 
drug, forging new neural connections, except these are not 
transitory.

                               ***

     All deals are big deals to little dealers.

                               ***

     Are there really any nouns?  For instance, in a 
sentence/idea such as, "Men (noun) run (verb)," does run actually 
exist outside of a noun doing it?  Does "run" exist when no one 
is there to do it?  Are all verbs just nouns alive?  And nouns 
just verbs in potential?  To a revolutionist, these areas would 
be of interest in regards to his mind's mutual captivity to its 
perceptions, and not merely on a linguistic basis.

                               ***

     Said one sad case in the city, "I survive by apologies 
alone."

                               ***

     Part of the benefit, and unrecognized intrigue of civilized 
sports is not simply in the physical movements, but also in that 
it causes one to look around more.

                               ***

     Jealousy can be seen as a mis-diagnosed city awareness that 
man doesn't really ever own ANYTHING.

                               ***

     One guy said, "I saw it coming," and all around him nodded 
and agreed.

                               ***

     In a more complex sense, a revolutionist knows that what 
took place was true yesterday, and that what must take place will  
be valid tomorrow; it's what people call "now" that will forever, 
to them, remain vague, uncontrollable, and generally useless...  
almost as though there were no such time.

                               ***

     I've got one more personal submission for the ole Safe 
Statement Award:  "May I then rely on receiving any suggestions 
or corrections you may have?"

                               ***

     While numbers are a necessary tool, they can also furnish 
the basis for pleasant hobbies; but nothing matches the hearty 
laughter in a revolutionist as when city folks turn them into 
serious statistics.

                               ***

     One ole sorehead declared, "If god hadda wanted us all to be 
Christians he wouldn't 'ave given Jesus such a funny last name."

                               ***

     Overheard a chap in that new little bar over near that old 
little bar say that in regards to his overall environment, he's 
finally come to the conclusion that his brain's wired up to a 
different area code.

                               ***

     Here's one you can inscribe on a coin to flip during the 
next triaxial solar wind storm:  If you only do what you've always 
done, you'll always be who you've always been, but-and-
furthermore, if you're only who you've always been, you'll only 
do what you've always done.  (Tidy, eh what?)

                               ***

     It is the rulers and leaders of governments and institutions 
who most eloquently sing the joys of necessity for fidelity and 
patriotism, yet they feel it the least.  What'dya make of 
that?...internally, where it counts?

                               ***

     I heard one man in the city recently proclaim that he was 
surely suffering from "cerebral cellulite."

                               ***

     In the city, some methods of distinguishing the ruling, 
upper classes is by their interests and hobbies which are totally 
useless, and that their time seems continually ill spent, if not 
wasted, and that much of what they consume is questionable for 
its price.  Sounds not totally unlike some revolutionists, what.

                               ***

     Don't look for enlightening transport in systems that 
require "exact change."

                               ***

     A revolutionist should -- no, make that MUST be a moving 
target.

                               ***

     The answer is, Life, genes, and accidents. Now what's your 
question?
