    some really good stuff. many romantics on this forum.

    i've been told by many older folks that health is most important in life. i am lucky to have plenty of it as of now.

    Ousting a counter-revolutionary.
    Seeing him at the gallows.
    Furthering the cause of international communism.
    Seeing the bourgeois pigs choke on their own filth.

    I just saw Conan the Barber, and I always loved this scene, it cracks[​IMG] me up everytime:
    Khitan General: We have won again. That is good! But what is best in life?
    Khitan Warrior: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcon on your wrist, wind in your hair!
    Khitan General: Wrong! Conan, what is best in life?
    Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women!
    Khitan General: That is good. All the men go "yeaaaaaaaa!!!!!" and cheer


    If you had to say what is Best in life? What would it be?

    tail end of vacation, the do-nothing days punctuated by good late night TV (we get 1963-era Avengers here)
    email from Tony that the bespoke shoes are done.
    a decent cup of coffee.

    sitting on my porch, bespoke head to toe, with a nice fat, dark cigar and a nice cold cloudy beer, with my wife next to me, and some good friends around me, talking about life, while watching my son and some of his friends run around and play, after a good meal, knowing that I am going to have some good sex later on that evening.

    The moment when you know you've got the Judge on your side (or jury, if you're into those kind of trials), and you turn around and give "learned counsel opposite" your best sh*t-eating grin.

    Killing an idle hour shopping, and stumbling upon something perfect, where you'd never thought to look. On sale.

    Biting into that perfect piece of steak. Or duck. Or chicken, if you really must (and trust me, you mustn't...).

    Washing it down with a red which matches just so.

    Going home to "work off" your meal, if you get my meaning. And I'm sure you do...

    Best in the life:

    *Good Cuban cigar after a good meal (maybe some portwine with it)

    *Glass of some Ardbeg in winter evening and a good book

    *Sauternes wines, and also good clarets with good food

    Thats my "good Life" [​IMG]
