You quoted Star Trek and yet you profess to not watch it .
Does that every time you start up a terminal? Nifty.
I like to use fortune to get random nuggets of wisdom. You should try it out.
"We are upping our standards ... so up yours."
-- Pat Paulsen for President, 1988.
Who the hell is Pat Paulsen?
Yes, it replaces the boring "Welcome to Darwin"
I don't know, thats just what fortune spit out for me.
here's another one:
It seems like the less a statesman amounts to, the more he loves the flag.
Oh yeah, doesn't fortune come with most linux distros?
In 1967, the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour premiered. Pat was hired because he sold them cheap songs and would run errands. At first he was cast as their editorialist and his double talk comments on the issues of the day propelled him into the national consciousness. "I felt I was saying real important things and also I got a lot more money."
Pat was later approached by the Smothers Brothers with the idea of running for President. Pat's reply was "Why not? I can't dance - besides, the job has a good pension plan and I'll get a lot of money whan I retire."
Pat's campaign was based in comedy and he ran it using outright lies, double talk and unfounded attacks on his challengers. Who would have thought this style would be the method of campaigns in the future? His work on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour earned Pat an Emmy in 1968.
I think I read a book by him about running for president once.
A Loser... he must have lost
It is better to have run and lost than to never have run at all. (Poetic license was taken with this quote. Copyright police, please don't shoot me)
Arrest that man!

I've only seen it in Slackware 8, which is what I use. Surprisingly, its listed under BSD Games, so I guess its a really, really old app.
I saw a variant of it once called sex, or something. It would throw together random nouns and verbs to come up with a really funky sentence.

Fortune gave me some really good advice for this thread, amazing how its appropriate for every moment:
"Apathy is not the problem, it's the solution"
