Since this post is already sticky, I'll make use of it.

Looking for fandom stuff? Check the fic tag, the icon tag, or the vid tag. You might also like fanboy moment and reviewish stuff.

Additional info:
If you like my posts, you're welcome to friend me. I'll probably reciprocrate, though sometimes it takes me a while to notice I've been friended.

Also, feel free to comment on old posts if they tickle your fancy. I especially love to hear feedback on my fics, though any post can be considered open for discussion.

That's all for the time being.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled post.

Exactly what it say on the tin, folks. This post is a big list of profound and/or funny quotes that I like. Looking for a way to make this a sort of 'sticky' post on both LJ and Facebook; can anyone help me with that?

ETA: I've cutified the bulk of the quotes, but I'm always bumping into newer quotes that I enjoy, so I'll try to keep a few fresh ones outside the cut as I come across them and once I get a few, I'll probably cycle older quotes under the cut with the newest quotes outside of it.

I feel honored. :) And props on quoting Sagan.

This is a bad ass list of quotes, dude. How long have you been collecting these?

You should post this as a Note on FB!
26th-Nov-2009 02:09 am (UTC)
My LJ posts are automatically imported as notes on Facebook.

I've been working on these quotes since around fall 2006. I had been adding them to the various info boxes on my Facebook, but it finally overflowed last night, so I decided to put them all together in a big LJ post.

I think I actually got that Sagan quote off one of your LJ posts from a while back. And your people with the power remark rang too true to ignore.

Omg! Lj-cut plz! 8D

If you'd like to make it a "sticky" for your journal, I would suggest changing the date to sometime in the future! (BE A TIME TRAVELER, YO!)
I usually list mine as 2027. Tis a good number.
I would suggest 2042, though.. As it would be partially the appropriate answer to any question. ;)

I'm not sure if you need to check/uncheck backdating.
But you can always make another post after and see what happens. It, essentially, should remain at the top of your posts.

I'm not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for.. but that's how I would do it. :)
26th-Nov-2009 02:30 pm (UTC)
What's really, really weird is I was once having a conversation with my mom about how I seem to see the number 42 all over the place. She countered with the logic that I only noticed the 42's because of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but that any other number was just as likely. After which she tasked me to start noticing another random number as well. That number was 27.

I should have realized the future date thing. I'll have to give that a go.

And I don't know if I wanna do a cut for this post or not.
27th-Nov-2009 04:04 am (UTC)
That's what the movie "The Number 23" is about. It's pretty good.

There's actually a whole website devoted to the omniprecense of 27.
30th-Nov-2009 02:43 pm (UTC)
I think most numbers can be subject to "popping up everywhere" if you're looking for them.
27 and 7 are just my favorite numbers. ;]
So that's what I use..

I ask for an lj-cut because it stretched my friends page the fug' out. lol Most people get annoyed with that sort of thing, I think..
Maybe cut it for a few weeks until people don't need to scroll past it. And then de-cut it?
Please? D8
