Well, the masses these days do seem to often represent more of a common denominator.

Kind of like a bell curve skewed to the left, they may be populous, but they are far from the median.

Not a Churchill fan myself, but the man was quotable.

That was one of the best posts ever made and curiously it was done by the one person on the planet, outside of germany, that is not a fan of Winston Churchill.

What website did you pull those from?

I don't know if the website I culled those from has ever been mentioned in this forum. It's called "The Art of Manliness."

http://artofmanliness.com/

I'm sure that some will dismiss it as being a little cheesy or a little to fond of nostaligia for times past, but I think it's a great site with some really good stuff that men of all ages would find amusing and useful. The Churchill pics are from a series of motivational posters that they have on their site. There are others that include Teddy Roosevelt (another overrated leader), Paul "Bear" Bryant, and a black history month edition.

Black History Month: http://artofmanliness.com/2010/01/31/mo ... h-edition/

Teddy R: http://artofmanliness.com/2009/05/17/th ... l-posters/

Here are a few others....
