I think about 90% of the people in that movie were wearing those shirts (or variants of them).

Glad you found it.

Nothing worse than trying to find a quote where the words are slightly different to the ones you recall. The obsessive-compulsive in me once spent days trying to find a quote from a movie, and I had not just the wrong words - I also had the wrong movie and the wrong actor in my memory. In the end I had to do searches on quotes about the general topic, and the one I was after eventually turned up in one of the lists.

Of course, the quote could also have come from the original author of "Crime and Punishment", Fyodor Dostoevsky, but I couldn't find any quotes attributed to him that use similar words to the ones that you mentioned.

The movie probably took some artistic/literary license & paraphrased St. Padre Pio's original quote (which would be why you could never find the original author - it would likely be the scriptwriter of director or the movie).

That occurs a lot in films & television shows as it can make it simpler for the audience to understand the meaning of the quote, or make the original quote more relevant to the plot of the movie.

I don't really know any clothing brands. Though I did buy a Lacoste "penguin" shirt back in the 1980s & used to wear Levis jeans in my teens & twenties.

I just do a shop once every one or two years at my local (Aussie) K-Mart or Target. I'm really a t-shirt, shorts & thongs (flip-flops, not undies) sort of guy. If it is cotton, fits, doesn't look too daggy & doesn't cost more than $25, I'll buy it.

They just don't really make fashionable clothing for men like me who look like a shorter version of George Costanza carrying a few extra pounds.

The closest I can find is this one:

"The sinner who is sorry for his sins is closer to God than the just man who boasts of his good works."

- St. Padre Pio

I would presume "the just man" could be applied to be a person who considers himself to be saintly or pious (not an actual saint).

This one has been bouncing around inside my head for days now. Must have heard it in the background on the radio or something, but it has become an earworm that doesn't want to leave:

Survey payment reversals :( » Post #4

Thu Feb 16, 2017 14:15 in General Talk

I think I have had 3 or 4 reversals in the past 5 years (and the most recent of those I thought would be reversed as it looked dodgy from the start - $4 for a 5 min survey).

I really try to make sure that I do not do the same survey twice through different routers, even if they are a few days apart. I would much rather drop out of a survey that I am 95% sure I have already done when only a couple of questions into it than watch the money I spent time earning disappear from my balance a few days or weeks later.

A majority of the satellites have earth-imaging capability and belong to a US company named Planet.

An Indian cartographic satellite, believed to be capable of taking high resolution images is also on board. It is expected to be used to monitor regional arch rivals Pakistan and China.

@msblahms, in that other topic valerie was just confirming something that is clear to most people. If a sponsor has chosen to hide their contact details from their downline, then they clearly do not want to be contacted by their downline. Simples!

It is the job of moderators (who are unpaid volunteers) to moderate the forums and provide basic help, not wet-nurse those members who need every single thing about the site explained to them in great detail.

In my 16 years of frequenting forums & their predecessors, I consider valerie to be one of the most patient & helpful moderators I have come across. The amount of abuse and rudeness she has had to put up with from members who are too lazy to look for information themselves or use the forum's search feature over the past week is quite shameful, and those members really should be disgusted with themselves.

Whinge whine whinge whine whinge whine whinge whine whinge whine whinge whine.

Don't you have any other tricks?

I bet people don't invite you to parties. Don't like the food. Don't like the drinks. The music's too loud. Always something to complain about.

Get on with life. Adapt. But stop bloody complaining all the time, and then complaining more when people ask you to stop!

My Kettle Died :-( » Post #1

Thu Feb 09, 2017 07:43 in General Talk

Bad enough hearing the news that PayPal had done the bolt on ClixSense. Then I am making my pre-bedtime herbal tea, and suddenly my place is in darkness. What is worse than a kettle carking it at midnight?

Could have nuked a herbal tea in the microwave, but suddenly, after all the stress, the 6 beers in my fridge looked like a viable alternative. Some days (or nights) are just like that, aren't they?

Anyway, used my PayPal balance to buy a click-and-collect kettle from the local Target. Gonna be too hot to make a cuppa for the next 3 days here in Sydney anyway.

I think Skrill required about the same amount of personal info as PayPal did when I signed up with them many eons ago.

Give Skrill a try tasman1. I was downhearted initially today, but then I decided that I would not give up on ClixSense. It only took a few minutes to sign up with Skrill & my account was activated the moment I confirmed the amount they withdrew from my Mastercard debit card. It costs about $8 to transfer your balance to your Aussie bank account, but if you let your balance build up, obviously that fee will have less of an impact.

Had emergency surgery and just got home » Post #13

Tue Feb 07, 2017 19:53 in General Talk

I had my gall bladder taken out in 2010 & haven't had a single problem since then valerie. One of the nurses in the emergency ward a few weeks earlier told me that she'd had no problems after hers was removed either, and that reassured me a lot.

Experienced the pain badly on & off after meals for about 3 months beforehand. It was excruciating a few times & I had to be taken in an ambulance to hospital to get a couple of doses of morphine. The first time I thought that my years of drinking in my 20s & 30s had caught up to me & my liver had burst. Seriously - I thought I was going to die.

My mother rolled her eyes when I told her how bad the pain was (apparently, only women can experience real pain - men are just moaners). Then she was talking about it to her friends at the volunteer shop, and one lady told her that she'd had her gall bladder removed too, and she told Mum that the pain of gallstones was much worse than childbirth. My pain attacks were taken a little more seriously after that conversation.

Modern medicine is amazing. I had my gall bladder removed late in the morning, and that night, in the hospital bed, I ate chicken breast & steamed vegetables for dinner, and I was discharged the next morning. My whole time in hospital for the operation was approximately 24 hours (and I had an umbilical hernia repaired at the same time, so I had extra holes in my belly). Though, unlike you valerie, I was able to get all of my tests & scans done in the weeks beforehand.

Anyway, relax & take it easy for a while. At least laparoscopic surgery takes a lot less time to recover from than the old, more invasive, surgical methods.
