Rum! Yar, you be as smart as paint my lad! (Apparently that was a compliment in the old days.)

I've been listening to Treasure Island this week. It's brilliant! I can see why it's such a classic.

You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God.

Dude that 13 year old girl is freaky. Crying about how clean everything needs to be.. Jesus. And "like ohmigawd it takes so long because I need to do my make-up and pick out the perfect outfit according to the weather!"
