This Week… Power Trips, Wasted Hours & Free Speech


"With great power comes great responsibility" – Uncle Ben

"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." – Groucho Marx

"De rabbit is de slickest o' all de animals de Lawd ever made" – Former slave, referred to in Malcolm Gladwell's 'David and Goliath'. 

"So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said "Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."" – Tim Vine

"Dance like a child, think nothing of judgemental eyes" – Faux Chateau

Why are my arms so weak? It’s like I did that push-up last year for nothing!” – Liz Lemon

"Yes, technically you're in charge while I'm away" – Wil Troup (May not be actual quote)

In case you thought you'd had a productive day – "Andrew Stanton conceived WALL-E during a lunch with fellow writers John Lasseter, Pete Docter, and Joe Ranft in 1994. Toy Story was nearing completion and the writers brainstormed ideas for their next projects – A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo – at this lunch." Source.

This is what our society has come to.

Only one more week of this before Wil's back. Honest.
