Heraclitus, one of his fragments of writings that were recovered.

How can I "remember" it, if I never fucking heard it in the first place?

This is the problem with quoting obscure sources; not only does it mean you wear Buddy Holly glasses and a tribly, it means the conversation goes all fucking pear-shaped when people don't know what the fuck you're on about.  Self-derail, just add pretention.

I had to look it up myself.  And I've read a fair bit of Heraclitus (admittedly, a few years ago now).  It was not the best chosen quote, I agree.

I can think of about 30 more relevant ways of saying the same thing.

But then I couldn't say I quoted some old Greek bastard whose drivel nobody bothered to write down.

Fine, you crank:

"Italian dressing sucks unless you shake it."

But then again, I think anyone who read the rest of my comment could have inferred the meaning based on the words that preceded and followed (what us Buddy Holly types call "context") and it would've been a missing tie rather than a full derail. Plus, you could do 2 minutes of reading and learn Heraclitus' small body of recovered work is quite aligned with some of the philosophies of Discordianism, directly referenced by RAW on one occasion, and enrich yourself a touch.

That is, if you can find time around your busy schedule of yelling at clouds and freebasing Mylanta.
If I had a million dollars, I'd put it all in a sensible mutual fund.

6/10, if only for my new favorite phrase, "freebasing Mylanta".

I approve of this moment of rage.

However, your mileage may vary when it comes to "the philosophies of Discordianism", which to me sounds like "the underlying motives of a bad train wreck" or "the philosophical beliefs of a planet-killing asteroid".

I am not required to look up Heraclitus.  The Greeks were all hairy barbarians and dumbfucks anyway, and I can prove it.  I am not required to admit that RAW has any bearing on my Discordia.  He was basically just a mouthpiece for Tim Leary, anyway.  And his novels sucked.

And since when has yelling at clouds been a bad thing?  They're too fucking slow.

Clouds are more fragile than other meteorological objects,  because they were born that way. Have a little compassion.

Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.
