Upbeat Cynicism

what do you mean i lost my mind?

Quote of the day

with one comment

“Of course, this is assuming that none of your ship Minds were lying.”

“Oh, they never lie. They dissemble, evade, prevaricate, confound, confuse, distract, obscure, subtly misrepresent and willfully misunderstand with what often appears to be a positively gleeful relish and are generally perfectly capable of contriving to give one an utterly unambiguous impression of their future course of action while in fact intending to do exactly the opposite, but they never lie. Perish the thought.”

— Iain M. Banks, Look to Windward

(He seems to have had business dealings with the Chinese…)
