Me: Maybe I should write some rants to go on my website. Problem is, I'm not very good at writing rants.
Mark: No way. You rant all the time.
Me: Oh, OK.

An oft-repeated comment--
``Linux is only free if your time is worthless.''
(I think one of the Unix Haters people said this first)
Well, duh. This one qualifies as `true but irrelevant'. It is like saying,
``Windows XP only costs £250 if your time is worthless.''
Another oft-repeated comment--
``An armed society is a polite society.''
(attributed to Heinlein)
This is extremely silly. It's only true if you believe that shooting people is polite....
You might also want to take a look at Tom's page of rants about films. You'll probably like it. And you should read `How do drivers suck?', especially if you own or operate a motor car. Some of what I say on my `web log' could probably be described as `ranting', too.
