Notable and quotable

Post by T-Pee » Sun Jul 06, 2014 3:19 pm

The last time this was done was back in '05 (I think) and I'm positive that we have had lots of memorable quotes since then. Post your favorites and the author if you remember who it was. I'll start with this one from today:

The truth is that this site is very unsafe. You will find that the longer you stay here the more addicted to this silly hobby you will become. -blanikdog-

The best thermometer to use on a pot is one that you can hit with a VERY heavy hammer!

-blanikdog-

The best location for a thermometer on a pot still is under a twenty pound hammer.

Ahhhhhhhh Goodie! Another thermometer mashed with a Twenty pound hammer.

From a new post by prairiepiss I had to post this here because I almost choked laughing when I read it:

"Ethanol has a flavor. It tastes like a hospital to me."

Made me think of hospital food...

Ignorance describes the mental state of having the ability to learn at a time when you have not yet learned, not to be confused with stupidity which more accurately describes a total inability to learn...

Goose Eye needs to publish a book. "Words of Wisdom as seen through the eye of a goose" for a title perhaps? Love his short, too the point and no bs sugar coating insights.
