    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    How come I'm not in the poll?

    Because I'm half Finn and half English, that's why!!!
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    I'm sorry, but any poll on Poles that doesn't include Mariusz Pudzianowski or Robert Kubica is incomplete!

    But my FAVORITE Pole is the North Pole.

    No Barber Pole? No Totem Pole? What kind of pole poll is this anyway? Someone needs to be impaled on a torture pole! Pol Pot wasn't anybody's favorite pole.

    I saw him playing 1st base for the Pirates when I was small. He had arms like tree trunks.

    Such silly nonsense. They don't have meaningless polls on Planetizen. Instead, we have articles written by the brightest minds in the planning, architecture and real estate fields. That is why Cyburbia continues to fall behind Planetizen. I used to post here a lot back in the late 1990s, but no more. The signal-to-noise ratio is too low around here now.

    Dang, I was born in one county named after a Pole and lived in another. I guess that makes me a pseudo Pole.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Doesn't two counties make you a Pole-ygamist?
