For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Shown a picture of 100 people, 50 smiling and 50 frowning, a sad person will see the frowns and a happy person will see the smiles - both will tell you that the picture is happy or sad based on their prejudice and so the picture has two moods even though it never changes.

This seemingly obvious experimental result can be read about in depth in various spiritual philosophies, Sutras and works that date back to civilizations who had no email. Walk into a room with a happy outlook and (unless you also have a shotgun) you will experience a happy room.

"Honk if you're happy" is really a modern day mantra of the "Unaware, Average Man, Atheist Who is Actually a Yogi". UAMAWAY is a title rarely used, the person you meet who seems to be quite average and normal but unflustered by life they announce little sayings that get them by.

"Things always work out in the end, unless they dun't" is almost the finest philosophy ever and was announced by a friend of mine when he was as drunk as the vodka he just drank.

"The world is blue and mainly inhabited by fish and dead chickens" was the epiphany I had after one particular evening on LSD.

Famously God said: "let there be light, whoa hang on a minute, who put all those other things in space and why is it still dark on the other side even though I've turned the light on?, Me Dammit I'm gonna have to wait for Edison to incarnate and invent that funky light bulb thang".

"Yesterday is always easier to plan for"- Dave.

"The only issues I have with what you said are; the words, the order of those words, and the tone" - John of Dark.

"All the action of the infinite universe through all of time has lead me to have this piss." Is what a friend of mine said whilst urinating off a cliff over a beach about 1 hour after the magic mushrooms kicked in.

I love divine truths that make me laugh. They are the very truest kind of truth.
If it doesn't fit on a bumper sticker, you just have to wonder if it's true at all.
