From our towers we cried, "Every man shall bear a soul, a right no other beast shall bear." And in the shadows, dogs shook their heads. "Shame upon those apes. Pride comes before the fall."
-Fall of Efrafa
When a man makes a beast out of himself, he gets rid of the pain of being a man.

The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is it's last day on Earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. To know you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take... inventory. Outgunned. Outnumbered. Out of our minds on a suicide mission, but the sands and rocks here stained with thousands of years of warfare... they will remember us for this. Because out of all our vast array of nightmares, this is the one we choose for ourselves. We go forward like a breath exhaled from the Earth. With vigor in our hearts and one goal in sight: We will kill him.
"If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it."
— Frank Zappa
"A slow death awaits us beyond a barbed-wire tightrope called 'life' that we troll upon so heavily. The pressure is killing us! The stress on the Earth is suffocating our spirits, causing misery to the heart. Illness and disease are certain to follow. We are old now, before we were even born. My womb is filled with cement and I am still hungry! My heart pounds wearily with a blood of lead and mercury. I am not strong; my hands are sharp and jagged as daggers. Not good for touching, or holding or helping. This is the mutation of tomorrow's pollutants and we no longer cry for the disasters that we've created, sustained, perpetuated, pretended. There is no Judgement Day, only reckoning which can no longer be ignored. We lay awaste our bodies. We lay awaste our minds."
"Want only what you need, need only what you want"
"Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost" - Charlie Chaplin
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. -Albert Einstein
"And now Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure." - Dumbledore.
The miserable have no other medicine but only hope - Measure for Measure, William Shakespeare.
The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
Buy Matt a Beer
$75.00 of $75.00
Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$100.00 of $100.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$105.00 of $200.00
Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
