    That would be Charles Dederich, sports fans, founder of the Synanon organization. It started out as a drug rehab program, but things got weird. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synanon

    Related: what I used to tell my kids when they would be pestering me: “when can we do/eat/whatever?” Me: “Five minutes after the last time you ask.”

    Didn’t Hubert Humphrey use that line while running for pres in 1968?

    Wrong- not “20” years ago. I dont know who started it but I remember that line on posters and such in the Seventies. Quite a few hippies still around then, hungover from the feel good era of flower power, Smiley Face signs, and Hang In There posters

    I prefer, “Always remember that this may be the last day of your life.” One day you’ll be right.
