How unfortunate

One of my favorite programs is fortune. Enjoy some goodies.

Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you.
Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch to be sure.

Ambidextrous, adj.:
Able to pick with equal skill a right-hand pocket or a left.
-- Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"

Your goose is cooked.
(Your current chick is burned up too!)

The Following Subsume All Physical and Human Laws:
(1) You can't push on a string.
(2) Ain't no free lunches.
(3) Them as has, gets.
(4) You can't win them all, but you sure as hell can lose them all.

Men often believe -- or pretend -- that the "Law" is something sacred, or
at least a science -- an unfounded assumption very convenient to governments.

A 'full' life in my experience is usually full only of other people's demands.

Creativity is no substitute for knowing what you are doing.

Mental power tended to corrupt, and absolute intelligence tended to
corrupt absolutely, until the victim eschewed violence entirely in
favor of smart solutions to stupid problems.
-- Piers Anthony

We have not inherited the earth from our parents, we've borrowed it from
our children.

EDIT: This one is absolutely beautiful.

Hear me out. Linux is Microsoft's main competition right now. Because of
this we are forcing them to "innovate", something they would usually avoid.
Now if MS Bob has taught us anything, Microsoft is not a company that
should be innovating. When they do, they don't come up with things like
"better security" or "stability", they come back with "talking
paperclips", and "throw in every usless feature we can think of, memory
footprint be dammed".

Unfortunatly, they also come up with the bright idea of executing email.
Now MIME attachments aren't enough, they want you to be able to run/open
attachments right when you get them. This sounds like a good idea to
people who believe renaming directories to folders made computing possible
for the common man, but security wise it's like vigorously shaking a
package from the Unibomber.

So my friends, we are to blame. We pushed them into frantically trying to
invent "necessary" features to stay on top, and look where it got us. Many
of us are watching our beloved mail servers go down under the strain and
rebuilding our company's PC because of our pointless competition with MS.
I implore you to please drop Linux before Microsoft innovates again.

What is "fortune" exactly, a quote generator? What's the platform?

It's a Linux program that comes packaged with a lot of popular distros.

I had it in Mint but I never used it.

I also have it tied into my squirrelmail.
