A friend of mine gave me an excellent idea, but you have to do some prep, so this is more for the next "want to kill someone" day.

In pie pans, freeze plate-sized sheets of ice. Voila, dishes anyone can afford to break, and no sharp invisible shards to look for!

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

No matter how long he lives, no man ever becomes as wise as the average woman of forty-eight.

It is impossible to imagine the universe run by a wise, just and omnipotent God, but it is quite easy to imagine it run by a board of gods.

An idealist is one who, on noticing that roses smell better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
--H L Mencken

The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.

And what is a good citizen? Simply one who never says, does or thinks anything that is unusual. Schools are maintained in order to bring this uniformity up to the highest possible point.

A school is a hopper into which children are heaved while they are still young and tender; therein they are pressed into certain standard shapes and covered from head to heels with official rubber-stamps.

– H. L. Mencken
