Considering what came next, I wonder if that settles the "do loud pipes save lives" debate as well. I guess it depends on whether or not you believed Ra brought the sunrise.

I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

I know it is a joke, but I thought the quote might have actually been in the Bible.

You’d say to the wind when it took you away:
‘Thats where I wanted to go today!’

Psalm 58:10,11 "The godly shall rejoice in the triumph"
... Amen

And then we have the biblical shopper comparison between Victory and Triumph, whereby the prospective buyer will "taste" the Victory, but will shout with (choose) Triumph:

Quote:
Zechariah 9:15 "They will taste victory and shout with triumph."
Wise...

Of course, there are many references to "Harlots & David's sons" in the bible, but rarely in positive way...

Now go forth and prosper.
