        It takes several acres of dirt to figure out you're not gonna be finding any gold.

                Romance must always exist, therefore, defying all accounts of history, Pocahontas must be made into a full grown woman in order for romance to exist.

                  yeah, and John must be made into an handsome young man. Which in reality, he was not.

                The 'colors of the wind' can be viewed in ways that have nothing to do with drugs.

                Painting colors in the wind and floating with transparent deer is what you call being on 17th century ACID.

                          Showing movies with cliff-jumping (totally safe), colors in the wind (not drugs), and racism (totally not unacceptable in society) to young, impressionable children is okay. Oh, and there was no gold in the end.

                              Corn, though delicious, is not gold. Shame, that.

                                Some trees are family. Others make for good shelter. Choose wisely.

                                  Raccoons are still the best animals on the planet. Even though they have the attention span of a 4 year old.

                                    When shooting someone, make sure both eyes are open for better aim.

                                            Your best friend will screw you over unintentionally, but somehow, things will turn out okay. Kind of.

                                                          Pocahontas was really 14, they obviously needed to change that for the movie.

                                                            I don't know. I think movie Pocahontas could pass for a 14-year-old nowadays.
