  • Channeling is just bad ventriloquism. You use another voice, but people can see your lips moving.

  • Wanna really get rid of this bullshit racism? Stop seeing yourself as white, or black, or even American! Be yourself and fuck the tribe! Not just yours, fuck everybody's tribe! Everyone fuck everyone! In a few generations, no more races, so no more racism.

Removal of incorrectly attributed quote[edit]

I removed one of the quotes, as it was incorrectly attributed to Mr. Jillette. I welcome someone to prove me wrong, citing the proper episode number, and approximate time it occured.


On Penn's radio show, 1/3/2007 http://penn.freefm.com/episode_download.php?contentType=36&contentId=197700 about 10:30 to 12:15 minutes in, he says that the "Luck is probability taken personally " was coined by Chip Denman, not himself. (for context, he is discussing a recent issue of "The Atom" where the quote is attributed to him, and says that he did not originate the quote.) 198.115.64.20 15:59, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
