            The trees will go out (yawn, long bs story involving bloody fireworks and a knobber that lives next door to a pine plantation, yawn, think of looking at moron firing rockets beside a pine plantation then looking at trees and wondering aloud "the wrong barsteward is planted here")

            Have a happy day, if you can't, make a real good mess of it, if it is going to stuff up you may as well do it BIG.

And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.'
