What's your favorite anecdote to tell?

Mixed, polite, low, or hostile company, as you prefer.

You could have reenacted that scene with Luke Skywalker at the end of Star Wars. :)

I'll never understand how the concept of having to produce things to have things becomes some sort of appalling anathema thrust upon us by, like, the man, man. 

I hate work more than the next guy, do as little of it as I can get away with, but the bottom line is that the economic functionality that's so reviled is what gives us the luxurious way of life that has somehow become so normal that people think working for it makes you a sucker.

Make war horrifying enough that your enemy sickens to experience it, and it will be brief, infrequent, and effective.

Dear Europeans,

I've been to your countries. Please tailor your lies accordingly.

Love,

There's no such thing as a serious threat. If it was serious, it wouldn't be a threat, it would be an incident report.

Gabriel's Happy Thought of the Day!

We're being digested by an uncaring universe. Become the digestant.

I'd rather be the antacid. I hate it when the universe burps.

I'm genuinely beginning to forget what it was even like to enjoy this network... whatever intellectualism and verve it once had is altogether gone, replaced with the pissy pedantry that was always a background din and no longer has anything redeeming to drown it out.

I try to keep my feelings on parents [in general as a species] locked up, but you guys seriously do not make it easy.

That moment when you want a whiskey sour enough to order one in a country that doesn't really "do" pasteurization. 

Meanwhile, if I die, put on my tombstone that I died of deliciousness.

Intellectualism is, by and large, competitive. The flaw becomes immediately apparent. If we presume Truth to be the goal, admittedly something of a leap in many circles, we must then surely acknowledge that the pursuit thereof through rhetorical means disadvantages those who cannot perform rhetorically. Having done so, we have created artificial selection in which it is not the best ideas which rise to the top, but rather the ideas espoused by the most eloquent speakers.

Plato spoke on the subject at length; I'm hardly unique. Yet we still seem to be making the same mistake, so perhaps my glib address to it remains necessary, if self-indulgent.

Were the judges possibly in a different ring and maybe just all black people look alike to them?

Ah yeah, not been watching the Derby. Horse racing just never quite grabbed me. I have been drinking mint juleps in solidarity with those who enjoy it, however ^.^

Impromtu survey for those who enjoy the fairer sex:

Do you judge and consider quality of women's bodies throughout the courtship and sexual experience, or does it quit mattering when you get to bed?

Feel free to answer whether you're male or not.

(in pursuit of +Kitten Holiday's post, the few responses to which surprised me quite a bit)
