Quote of the Day
A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.
Robert A. Heinlein
I hold the world speed record downhill, in a Rover. I think it was 17 kilometers per hour, downhill.
But each time I seemed to be climbing into a roller coaster and finding myself coming through the downhill run with that sort of dazed feeling that we all know.

When a woman reaches twenty-six in America, she's on the slide. It's downhill all the way from then on. It doesn't give you a tremendous feeling of confidence and well-being.
Alzheimer's is a disease for which there is no effective treatment whatsoever. To be clear, there is no pharmaceutical agent, no magic pill that a doctor can prescribe that will have any significant effect on the progressive downhill course of this disease.

I do uphill skiing; I don't do downhill skiing. I think that's for nerd amateurs.

Raymond E. Feist
