I just realized your pic. I recently learned what all the little lines surrounding the yin yang mean. Yay how exciting! Also, may I steal the pic to use?

I didn't create the pic and don't remember what permissions were granted, but as long as its personal use, your golden. :)

Lots of people don't know about the lines, very cool that you do :> If I remember right, the movie Fifth Element uses four of them...

It's the I Ching, innit? I don't know what they mean...but I did once, a long time ago.

Had a ninja video game that used 'em as copy protection; as a by-product, I learned 'em. Heh.

But, uh...wouldn't a straight path reach its destination, you know...faster?

Just sayin'...

Yeah, well...I have to admit that that particular saying sounds more like consolation for delays rather than, you know, good advice.

Life is VASTLY more interesting taking a slow winding path than a straight & narrow freeway ta death.

Who really wants ta get THERE quickly anyway?

Ah-hah. You assume death is the destination; I'm not so sure.

I'll happily take the slow and winding path to death, but there's other destinations I'd love to reach more efficiently, yanno?
