So this gal, Jenny, has taken some of the things I have said and slapped them on images and pushed them onto the fan page at facebook. The one she put up this morning has really taken off.

Let's see if I can paste some in:

I hope that, someday, grocery stores carry only permaculture food because the farmers make more money growing permaculture food and monsanto dries up and blows away because nobdy will give them money





So Jenny emailed me a little while ago and said she can't think of anymore and if there is anything I can think of. But I don't really know. It seems like I don't say anything all that profound until it appears on a pretty picture like that.

Here is my latest "elevator" blurb to describe permaculture: "permaculture is optimizing the symbiotic relationship between nature and people so I can be lazier."

Not sure if that helps.

Can anybody think of anything I've said somewhere that seems worthy of going on a pretty picture?

the monent you put an animal in a cage or behind a fence, you are taking responsibility for the welfare of that animal. if you are a person of conscience, then you want to treat the animal well. Possibly better that if it were living in the wild.

my overalls have superpowers. they repel people who think fashion is important

In the last podcast, Paul was asking Geoff about his famous quotes.

Apart from the ones in these memes, what would be other Paul Wheaton's great quotes?

Ok I know Paul has said lots of great things worthy of a pretty picture, but my all-time favorite is: "I am coffees Bitch".
In our house it has now been adopted as a Family Saying.

Ahh, this one is definitely worthy of a pretty picture.

"The moment you put an animal in a cage or behind a fence, you are taking responsibility for the welfare of that animal. "

Not quite a quote but more paraphrasing Paul.

Paul has ironic and obnoxious humor needs. Imagine a picture of something toxic, or inappropriate in a way that will obviously go down a poor path, and there is Paul, giving a cheesy, thumbs-up and hearty "good luck with that!"

Might not be meme worthy, though it's something I hear him say all the time.

I think his comparison of politicians with scary clowns would be really good as a meme. I just have to get back to the podcast to write it down correctly.

Permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier.

In few of the last podcasts, Paul talked about is political circus theory, so someone made a meme out of it.

I think that politics is a circus made dominantly of scary clowns whose purpose is to distract you from what is really going on

I like the one about Weeds: resistance is fertile
which only makes sense if you think of the weeds as the resistance.

These quotes are in no particular order and they deal with a variety of subjects. Wherever there is a blank line, a new thought begins. These nuggets were gleaned from all over this site. Most are from --- tinkering with this site.

Therefore, in my personal experience, and doing a little math, I predict that every person with their finger out, pointed at somebody with "greed" on their lips is actually the greedier party. I think what they are actually trying to say is "I want your stuff. But I don't want to do what you did to get it."

Rather than seeing themselves on a path where there are lessons ahead and lessons behind, they are certain that they have arrived at the knowledge destination. Further, now that they know all that there is to know - anybody that has a thought that is not perfectly aligned with their own is wrong.

The question "why not?" has always bugged me. It's as if I have to do a thing unless I lay out a convincing proof to the alternative path.

Once in a long while, somebody says they are not comfortable with forums or they really need an immediate answer from me. That's cool. Please see this page about my rates on one-on-one consultation. And keep in mind, using the forums is always free.

What is not allowed is feeble minded nitwits telling me what to do because of their relationship with God.

I am certainly not God. I am a doofus who is trying to figure out how to do good things.

And, if anybody tells you that you cannot raise squash without irrigation, slap them and show them this video. I think he meant that figuratively.

I deleted a coupla posts here.I wanna remind folks of a few things...

But, of course, nobody likes to have their stuff deleted. So I will always be the bad guy.

Yesterday I learned "everybody thinks paul wheaton is impossible to work with".

"s.h.i.b." is "stoned hippies in the basement pontificating about the way things ought to be."

I am glad that there are folks offended by this approach - those folks are clearly not a fit for these forums and now they will stay away.
I will continue to try and drive traffic to this site - in search of that one person in ten thousand that is a fit for our little community. An exaggeration, I hope.

Rather than standing on a soapbox and trying to tell people to "stop being bad", I am trying to build a better world one brick at a time.

Some sites on the internet will publish anything that anybody submits. This is not one of those sites.

I still do lots of stuff for free. And I'll continue to give stuff away for free. And I'm going to try to pull in enough money to move all of my projects forward. I have things to prove.

It's not my photo unfortunately. It's one of my backgrounds, but it's beautiful and quiet like the thought.

I don't actually remember. I remember him saying it, but I can't remember where it's from.

Love this thread!
Would it be ok to use the circus image and quote on a t-shirt?
Actually I'm planning on up cycling a few garments, I'd love to use some of this stuff on patches here and there if its ok.
