Some Words To Learn 

A quick note to: "That Bastard, Whose Name Is Too Long To Write Out""

ABSTAINER, n.
A weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure. A total abstainer is one who abstains from everything but abstention, and especially from inactivity in the affairs of others.

IDIOT, n.
A member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs has always been dominant and controlling. The Idiot's activity is not confined to any special field of thought or action, but "pervades and regulates the whole." He has the last word in everything; his decision is unappealable. He sets the fashions and opinion of taste, dictates the limitations of speech and circumscribes conduct with a dead-line.
Both from: Ambrose Bierce (The Devil's Dictionary)

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that every Idiot is an Abstainer, but I am saying that every Abstainer is and Idiot - enjoy your life man! - and BTW: I won't be returning that phone call, so don't hold ya breath, you'll only suffocate!
