Eyecandy Monday


I have discovered Pinterest.  This was the very frst picture I repinned from someone else's board!

This is bad. It appeals so deeply to the anal streak in me - I am using it as a backup file for my eyecandy. All those pretty faces. All those tattoos. Minotaurs. Book covers soon. Then smartarse wisdom quotes swiped off the Internet. Story inspiration. Places I want to go on holiday ... And they can be organised and filed and refiled and reboxed  until ... Argh!

The only restriction is that Pinterest has a "no nudity" policy (I'm assuming that means no cocks, no pussy), so I'm being slightly more careful about the pics I pop up there.

I'm trying to take it slowly. Otherwise I may very well disappear up my own arse.

I'll give you a nickel for every Internet-found quotation you vet for authenticity (correct attribution, correct wording, specific original source documented) before reposting it. Cumulatively payable in drinks when we meet in person someday. (:v>

No cocks, but there's a board for up your own arse?! :)

I want to do it, but I don't want everything I pin be put up on Facebook, Is nothing private anymore??

But seriously, bad quotations are a widespread plague—and it's a phenomenon that's been with us since long before the Internet. Fly-by-night columnists would take old public-domain witticisms and put them in the mouths of notables, or even just make stuff up and casually suggest this or that famous person was "believed to have been overheard saying" this or that. Then other newspapers would reprint this stuff, and then these items would make it, in one form or another, into the shoddier quotation books, and thence into the next generation of shoddy quotation books—so that now a lot of bad quotations are "supported" by bad reference works. Thank goodness for Wikiquotes and Quote Investigator! At this point, if I don't see evidence as to where a famous wit wrote something or, if it was oral, what credible firsthand witnesses documented it, I am reluctant to believe.

Love this anal/pernickety discussion, guys!

Sorry I'm being a bit lax at the moment (ooh-er missus), but I'm on a campsite in the middle of nowhere and have been neglecting my websites cruelly. Back to normal tonight though!
