In My Own Words: safe-at-last's Convoluted Comedy & Logical Irony

Updated on September 4, 2011

The question is not "To be, or not to be?", the question is "So, just how far down the rabbit hole do you really want to go?". (A Mel Stewart Original)

MA - Mature Audiences Only

WARNING: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HUB CONTAINS OCCASIONAL COURSE LANGUAGE Please do not read any further if you are offended by course language or are under 18 years of age. Thank you. Mel Stewart (safe-at-last)

In this hub I have included some of my more bizarre, convoluted, pedantic and/or amusing one liners and quotes. Please feel free to use them, but please remember to credit me (Mel Stewart or safe-at-last) for all quotes as all my writing is under the following copyright:

"Every activist needs a good rant every now and then." - Mel Stewart (safe-at-last)

  • DISCLAIMER: Any post on this page is not intended to offend any person, of any gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, political opinion, body type, blood type or hair color, in any way, whether directly, indirectly, or inadvertently.
  • To be a fruitcake or not to be a fruitcake? THAT is the question! Um, OK, truth is that personally, I would prefer neither to be, nor not to be, because I am in fact quite happy being a rather fine nut instead. Nuttiness is not a sign of insanity, as many non-nuts may think, but a sign of intelligent insight that enables all nuts to affectionately appreciate fruitcakes everywhere!!!!
  • When you ASSUME, you make an ASS out of U and ME. In other words, [(misunderstandings x miscommunications) + (misspoken feelings x misinterpreted words)] + [(misprioritized efforts + missedopportunities) ÷ misconceptions] = missing-the-whole-bloody-point!!!!!!!!!!
  • The greatest thing about finding someone just as weird as me is that he thinks I am COMPLETELY normal!

No matter what - hang in there! Never panic! The trick is to remain calm in any situation, not matter how alarming it may be or how helpless you may feel. Of course, there are some situations that leave you with no choice; In such situations, the best thing to do is just sit back and relax...

  • In my defense, the intent behind my politically incorrect outburst was itself politically correct.
  • Wow, you learn something new every day! As usual, one of my comments turned into a thesis length essay, and when I hit the "comment" tab to post it, I was informed by FB that the maximum length allowed for a comment is 8000 characters..... oh dear, another Mel Moment! Too much coffee again me thinks....
  • Captain Jack Sparrow has commandeered my thump thump. Why? Because I love the pirate's quirky sense of humor, his surprisingly respectable set of moral ethics and the undeniable logic of the conclusions he draws from his convoluted deductions and deceptively simple reasoning.... Though the fact that I love all that may quite possibly mean I have a convoluted sense of reality!

"Don't be a puppet - unless you're a Muppet of course - Muppet's RULE! };-p" - Mel Stewart

  • Hypocrites are usually the ones who are unable to see the absurdity of their duplicitous views...
  • Don't judge a sentence by its noun... or its verb... or its adjective...or its conjunction...
  • Psychopaths and sociopaths must have it soooooo easy, I swear, my conscience drives me INSANE sometimes!!!!

  • Most people "get" it, while others just don't. Some do, but refuse to admit so. A few don't know there is anything to get, and yell "fire fire" no matter what instead. Then there are those who put quail eggs and eagle eggs into the same carton, label it "rooster sh!t", and then take offense when you refuse to eat the omelets they cook!

  • Baz: "Would you still be with me if I had to have a lobotomy?" Mel: "Well, I have heard they can sometimes be quite successful..." (bahaaahaaaa WTF? Where did that come from?)

To all the misogynistic neanderthals out there who refuse to accept that a gal can do things for herself; think all women need a "man" to look after them; forcibly take over when they see a woman pick up a screw driver or a drill; make blanket statements about slow women drivers; believe that women should be seen and not heard; or scoff at mum's who take their kids fishing; I say this: "I am a woman! Watch me do, eat my dust, hear me roar and screw you - get your own fish!

  • Sorry about that folks! I had a brief but terrifying moment of sanity. Thankfully, everything has returned to normal....
  • "My apologies to all my fans for my lack of proactive activism and extremely selfish, complete self absorption in the last few weeks. I now have 5,417 unread emails, which I have to admit is a bit of a record for me, especially on this relatively new 'puter. I have not forgotten you all, and as soon as I find my brain, I shall be answering emails, forwarding links and responding to comments like I usually do...
  • PS: I am offering a substantial reward for the return of my brain, or even any information that leads to the recovery of said gray matter. The organ is about the size of a football, is light gray in color and somewhat resembles a walnut. It is quite possible that it will be on the verge of dehydration by now, so feel free to chuck a bucket of water on it if you feel the need.
  • PPS. If you DO happen to see my missing brain, please note that it responds well to music, laughter and intelligent debate, though not always; If all 3 of these fail, then I advise you to resort to drastic measures, for example: bribe it with the promise of multiple roller coaster rides (this should render it completely pliable). In the mean time, if anyone needs me, I'll be on cloud 9, wherever that is... - Mel Stewart

P.T.S.D. explained in 7 words:

"If you hang on, NO MATTER WHAT, then it won't matter when you wobble: You may get a bit dizzy, but you won't fall..." - Mel Stewart

  • Moderation is the key, therefore I like to maintain a healthy balance of sanity and insanity!
  • Toaster manufacturers need to produce a line of PTSD friendly toasters that warn survivors of abuse that the toast is about to pop up so they do not get "triggered" every morning before breakfast when the toast pops up and scares the absolute crap out of them, making them spill their coffee all over themselves yet again!
  • EMDR = Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing OR Extremely Maximized Daydreams Reprioritized
  • AD/HD = Always Dreaming / Hardly Diplomatic
  • EHD = Excessive Humor Disorder
  • OCFD = obsessive compulsive fishing disorder
  • OMIFD = open mouth insert foot disorder
  • OMAIOFD = open mouth again insert other foot disorder
  • I like to define myself as a Fine Nut (specifically of the sub-genus oak, the scientific name for which is Quercus, which sounds quirky, just like me), as opposed to a fruitcake.

The problem with reality is that there's no background music, so you never really know whether something mysterious, dramatic, momentous or exciting is about to happen...
