"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, co-operate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein.

"No matter how confident a government’s assurances may be, or how persistently it may dissuade its citizenry from attempting to solve their own problems, or how suffocating its blanket of regulations may become, there will eventually come a day when the power goes out, a hurricane or tornado appears, the police are busy, or a wildfire threatens – and government help is nowhere to be found.And when that time comes, everyone has a choice to make. Do you meekly accept the situation in accordance with your government-mandated helplessness? Or do you and those you know and trust take matters into your own hands − do you turn and head into the fire? "

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” - T. Roosevelt

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self. -Ernest Hemingway

Saint Hubert is my favourite saint. Through his accomplishments and work in different fields he is named the the patron saint of:archers, hunters, dogbreeders, houndsmen, mathematicians, metal workers, forest workers, smelters, precision instruments, optics, & trapping.He also managed to have 3 military orders formed in his honor, a town in Saskatchewan named after him and his personal crest on every bottle of Jägermeister.

This Is The Hunters Badge Of Glory ,
That He Protect And Tend His Quarry
And Hunt With Honor As Is Due ,
And Through The Beast To The Lord Be True .
Weapons Of War Are By Hatred Run
Yet Love For Game Fires Our Gun .
Therefore Ponder Your Daily Bread ,
Did Your Game Not Suffer Dread ?
Guard Game From Man And Beast Alike ,
Make Brief It's Death, Make Sure Your Strike
Be Outside Rough Yet Mild Inside
And The Badge Of Glory Pure Abide!

One thing now,
