"I'm thinking of buying a monkey. Then I think, "Why stop at one?" I don't like being limited in that way. Therefore, I'm considering a platoon of monkeys, so that people will look at me and see how mellow and well-adjusted i am compared to these monkeys throwing feces around." - Robert Downey Jnr.

Love this one. Famously this is one of his stonkers:

"there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. ... But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know."

^ that's fine:
known knowns: things we know, and we know we know them
known unknowns: things we know that we don’t know
unknown knowns: things we know but don’t realise we know them
unknown unknowns: things we don’t know that we don’t know

She's released two of the finest albums ever, but I don't think she was all that bright. "I made a mistake. I said in Melody Maker to some interviewer that I didn’t like negroes. That’s all. They took it so personally…although it’s a whole different race. I mean, Bob Marley doesn’t resemble a negro, does he? He’s an archetype of Jamaican, but with the features like white people. I don’t like the features. They’re so much like animals… It’s cannibals, no?” - Nico

it's just the structure of it that strikes me as sounding more stupid than it is. also Rumsfeld saying anything comes across badly.

The implication of Owen's is surely that it wasn't 'deliberate handball'.

‘Like Thatcher, Mike Skinner from The Streets helped the British middle class find their self respect again’ - Gavin McInnes.

That’s a paraphrase from memory as the original tweet is long gone, but it was words to that effect. Anyway I remember it as being a notably cringeworthy attempt to (coming from
a Canadian with UK ancestry and connections) impart some ‘insider’ insight on these UK - specific subjects to his young and mainly American fanbase and getting the specifics bizzarely ‘off’ in the process. I think it was meant to be provocative but the comparison is such a non sequitur it falls flat on its face.

"The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory, is that conspiracy theorists believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is actually chaotic. The truth is that it is not The Iluminati, or The Jewish Banking Conspiracy, or the Gray Alien Theory.

The truth is far more frightening - Nobody is in control.

The world is rudderless." - Alan Moore

Much-quoted and very admirable and all that, but the idea that no one is in control and political conspiracies don't exist at all, just because some of the well-known ones are egregious and offensive, is complete crap. Nothing to do with finding the alternative too frightening.

I like how this never stopped him from making these ideas cool in the first place through writing popular, critically-acclaimed stories that involve conspiracies, secret societies, false flags, totalitarian governments, and hidden hands directing major plot points and entire societies.

The man's a genius.

"Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war."

He’s not saying that mirrors aren’t real, he’s saying IF our eyes aren’t real then how can mirrors be. If, mate. IF.

If you can’t even read properly, how can you not be the world’s biggest peodo?

Post-match interviewer: "Disappointed, Kevin?"

Keegan: (sighs) "I'm not disappointed, no. Just disappointed."

I'm sure this happened. Can't remember when/which match.

“The Germans only have one player under 22, and he’s 23.”

“Shaun Wright-Phillips has got a big heart. It’s as big as him, which isn’t very big, but it’s bigger.”

“The 33 or 34-year-olds will be 36 or 37 by the time the next World Cup comes around, if they’re not careful.”

“You can’t play with a one-armed goalkeeper…not at this level.”

“He scores most of his goals when he’s got the ball.”


This thread could easily just be Keggy quotes.
