Wild Fact About Me ....I have spent MONTHS trying to come up with an impressive answer to this one, but the inescapable conclusion that I must reach is: there is nothing wild about me whatsoever. *tries not to look TOO pathetic and geeky*
My Philosophy An' it harm none, do what ye will.
What Gives Me Hope Small acts of kindness from strangers or those I don't know very well, whether it be a smile or a kind word or a wry observation or whatever. ..."those whose kindness leaves you without debt"...
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by ...well this is a tough one. My greatest concerns with the modern world seem to stem from two places, (1) the increasing loss of respect that people show for the people around them, the world around them, and themselves; and (2) the unwillingness of most people to consider and take into account the consequences of their actions (we want everything for free, without inconvenience, without any sacrifice, without consideration of any costs to anyone except ourselves). I refer to it as the "Me! Now!" mentality.
Unfortunately I have no answers for reversing this.
What/who changed my life and why Book: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. It taught me to laugh more, to look at things and see the humour in them rather than the tragedy.

Quotation "Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are like us.' Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: 'Because the animals are not like us.' Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction." (Professor Charles R. Magel)
"Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money." (Cree Proverb)
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
"To be nobody-but-yourself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." (e.e. cummings)
"The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn." (Gloria Steinem)
