"shitpisscuntfuckcocksuckermotherfuckerandtits": You say it like a secular prayer...

George Carlin, 1937-2008.
Seven words you STILL can't say on Television.

But you know, I'm pretty sure 'tits' made it a couple of times...

"Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll to to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you! ...And he needs money! He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!

I've begun worshipping the sun for a number of reasons. First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the sun. It's there for me every day. And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money, I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry. And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to God are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate.

Religion is sort of like a lift in your shoes. If it makes you feel better, fine. Just don't ask me to wear your shoes. And let's not nail the lift to the natives' feet."

My childhood heroes are starting to die off, first Stan Winston(I never went to Jr High school without a copy of Fangoria or Starlog)and now George Carlin. I guess this is all part of that "getting oldder" thing.
