There's a tobacco company that uses the slogan, "Veni. Vidi. Vici." That's Latin for, "I came. I saw. I conquered." Julius Caesar said it after he kicked some army's butt. Seem like kind of an unfriendly thing for a company to say?
Imagine that meeting. Bunch of guys sitting around a table going, "We need a slogan. Something that really speaks to the public."
"How about, 'We rode into town on horseback, hacked everyone up with swords, and then burned their houses to the ground?'"
"Nah, too long. How about, 'I came. I saw. I conquered?'"
"Oh yeah, that's real nice. But let's do it in Latin. 'Cause Latin's like, way classier n' junk."

Whose face is on a gazillion dollar bill? [/color]
How can we put this?
You know those music videos that show hip-hop artists dripping in diamonds and gold and throwing fat wads of cash out the windows of their stretch SUVs like confetti while rhyming about fat wads of cash and giving fat wads of cash to strangers and thinking about all the fat wads of cash they make and how bad they are with all their fat wads of cash?
The tobacco industry could afford to buy any of those hip-hop artists, all their stuff, and all their family's stuff, and then buy them all new stuff, and send them and all their new stuff on a brand new private jet to an island nation.
Then they could buy that island and pay the artists to sing Irish folk songs until their vocal cords exploded. And they'd still turn a profit that week.
And those hip-hop guys can brag all they want about killing people. The tobacco industry makes a product that kills 1,200 people in the U.S. every day. Tell that to your parents the next time they hassle you about your musical choices.

Fun with mind control. [/size][/color]
Wallpaper's always there. It doesn't make a noise or move or anything. It just sits there on your desktop - staring at you. Observing your every mouse click. Watching you. Judging you silently like a damned silent, judgmental thing. Getting inside your brain with its patient, persistent patterns until you're lulled into painless submission. And ours are way cool.[size=12][/size]

I just got back from the movie theatre (it is a paid holiday for me. :D ) Anyway, I took my teen aged kids to see the Dare Devil. It was a noctch above Spider Man and the action was incredible. The movie starts out as a narrative and ends as a narrative. The events take place in "Hell's Kitchen." At the end of the movie there is a really poetic line that is spoken by the narrator. I forgot everything he said but the statement ends with, "I am the guardian devil." That is really poetic for 'Hell's Kitchen."

... and I am the guardian devil.

I reckon I'll have to go see it again because I enjoyed it and I also want to remember the last line because it makes a remarkable quotation.

Some other lines that I can remember

"a man without fear is a dangerous animal."

"How do you stop a man without fear?"

The critics here in SF panned it, but the ads look great. Based on your review and the fact that you would see it again, I'm sold. I'll have to check it out.

Daredevil -- also known as the Man Without Fear
http://www.nlgaming.com/media%5CXbox%5C ... index.html
A man without fear is a man without hope, Matt is told by his neighborhood priest, Father Everett (Derrick O'Connor).

"A man without fear is dangerous; even the Gods know fear."
~from Aesculapius by Madhuram Nagarajan
http://www.freshlimesoda.com/fiction/ma ... arajan.htm

"...I know you're mad as all hell, but you can't let the anger control you."
There is no response forthcoming as Daredevil's head lowers slightly.
Then, Peter Parker, the amazing Spider-Man, sees it. The quiver of Matt Murdock's lip, the wetness appearing on his cowl beneath the eyeslits. He puts his other hand on Matt's free shoulder.
"Sometimes, you just gotta let it out."
He falls to the ground, and Peter Parker watches as a devil cries. For not even a man without fear is a man without emotion.
~ "SILENT NIGHT" Starring Daredevil By Dino Pollard
from Issue #31, Marvel 2000 Presents....
