Give a man a fire and he will be warm until it burns out.
Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life.

Saw this somewhere else, works better in my opinion.

It's originally from one of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, Jingo. Great book.

jingo is the one in their Australia, right? or is that the lost continent? or wait is Jingo the one where they go to the abandoned island through the guys bathroom window?
User avatar #17 to #16 - pipeworks (08/05/2014) [-]
The not-Australia and the island through the window are both from the same book, The Lost Continent

Jingo is the one where a creepy island rises from the sea, and Vimes has to prevent a war between Ankh-Morpork and not-Arabia.

Of the two, I prefer The Lost Continent, because of the whole Mad Max parody thing, but while Jingo isn't funny it's very poignant.

Man, Jingo is hilarious, what are you talking about. I've got Al here who'd like to disagree.
User avatar #57 to #43 - pipeworks (08/05/2014) [-]
Jingo had funny moments, it was just more serious in general. The Lost Continent is a whole stew of hilarity.

I haven't read a lot of books outside of the Sam Vimes ones. I guess I really should, but I only really get by those books when I'm travelling abroad.

I read Snuff recently and I don't know. There were parts where it didn't feel like it was written by Terry, which is understandable considering his trouble with Alzhaimers' I think.

Yeah, it's kinda sad, actually. If you read the whole series, you can tell the exact point where it....changes.

I think the Sam Vimes books are probably the best, with a few exceptions. Small Gods is incredibly moving, and both Interesting Times and Lost Continent are hilarious.

You can survive a skydive when your chute fails...... but would you really want to? i mean, **** dude, i'd rather piss glass.

he did break his back and some other stuff, but hes still alive

Imagine that though. You just see the ground coming up really ******* fast and you know you're ****** . knowing MY luck, i'd probably just die of a heart attack on the way down
User avatar #53 to #52 - admiralen ONLINE (08/05/2014) [-]
the impressive part is not fainting, usually the brain just shuts down before you hit the ground in those cases
User avatar #54 to #53 - brothergrimm ONLINE (08/05/2014) [-]
That's probably how people end up surviving. relaxed body flexes easier and one locked in "OH **** !" mode
User avatar #55 to #54 - admiralen ONLINE (08/05/2014) [-]
if you faint you cant stop yourself from landing headfirst though

Not if he doesn't die. Not all poisons are lethal.

okay maybe I'm not a genious like others but if you give him a toxic fish won't he die how you feed him?
#10 to #2 - alexanderh (08/04/2014) [-]
Give man a fish = fed for a day
give man a poisoned fish = fed for a day, dead within a day. Fed for the rest of his life.

if you give him a toxic fish he will eat it (he has now been feed) and die soon after wile he is still full it would be like the good guy in a movie saying to the bad guy this mistake will be your last and then killing the bad guy
