Anything Goes

AnythingGoes. AsLongAsThereIsMoneyOrSexInIt.

Note: page last modified in 2001. I think when GenerationX becomes TooOld, they will also put their hands up and exclaim AnythingGoes


Quotes from philosopher PaulFeyerabend (AgainstMethod).

		'anything goes' is not a 'principle' I hold...but the terrified
		exclamation of a rationalist who takes a closer look at history.

...

The only principle which does not inhibit progress is: anything goes.

And from philosopher ColePorter?:
   Times have changed
   And we've often rewound the clock
   Since the Puritans got a shock
   When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
   If today, any shock they should try to stem,
   'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
   Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days a glimpse of stocking Was looked on as something shocking Now heaven knows, anything goes

Good authors too who once knew better words Now only use four letter words writing prose Anything goes

The world has gone mad today And good's bad today And black's white today And day's night today When most guys today that women prize today Are just silly gigolos

So though I'm not a great romancer I know that you're bound to answer When I propose, anything goes

The world has gone mad today And good's bad today, And black's white today, And day's night today, And that gent today You gave a cent today Once had several chateaux. When folks who still can ride in jitneys Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys Lack baby clo'es, Anything goes.
