Endear yourself to others and one of the consequences is that they tend to remember some of the more flamboyant moments.

A crack in the facade?



I don't know what you're getting at here, but I'm pretty sure it's both rude and condescending, so I won't bother to figure it out.

I know I haven't "endeared" myself to either you or the aforementioned poster who got in an anti-teacher lather, but I can live with that--c'est la vie, sic transit gloria, and all that.
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.---George Bernard Shaw

The Republicans revolt! They want to leave California (roughly 1/3 of the population of the state). I guess San Diego would become the new state capital.

From the LA Times:

"Secession proposals are just ways of thinking about California, and are also ways for people who feel neglected get the attention that they deserve," said USC historian Kevin Starr, who has written extensively on California. "It's never passed, and it will never pass. It's been up to bat 220 times and struck out every time.''
"In my own case, when it seemed to me after a long illness that death was close at hand, I found no little solace in playing constantly at dice." -- Girolamo Cardano, 1563
