fish." --20 Past Midnight
My love of haiku
Was small as a cicada
And then got smaller.
"You killed my mammy! You killed my pappy! And you split my lip!"

Men are like a fine wine.
They all start out like grapes, and it's women's job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you'd want to have dinner with.
Here's where (possibly) Asimov's fiction guessed well-- I think he mentions Positronic brains can not be copied, just like the evolved electronics were so efficient yet dependent on the minutest factors of engineering.
You would need something evolved for transportability as well as functionality, very tough to do in hardware. But since the whole point of hardware was a richer feature set in the first place...
God damn my blood pressure.
It used to be just fucking peachy.
(And then I started excercising. Probably unrelated?)
watching almost-blind Mark Davis lumber around outside (waiting for a lift) gave me a twinge about my dad and his walks on Glen Ridge.

Q: You're also involved in the Humanitarian Reform Movement.
A: I see you scanned my website. You worked really hard. Did you
listen to the record too?
Q: Yeah. And I watched the short film you made to accompany Ophelia, in
which you speak, like, four languages.
A: Five. Six, if you include English.
Q: Six languages? Are you showing off?
A: *Oy vay!*
Q: That's, like, a seventh language.
A: You're annoying me. It's like being interviewed by the biggest snotty bullyboy in the world.
Q: It's just that you seem kind of serious. What do you do for fun?
A: I don't really have wacky moments. It's more of finding the humor
in people and situations. I don't wake up in the morning and say, I'll
be wacky today. What do you do to be wacky, Joel?
A: Ask annoying questions of female vocalists.
--Joel Stein interviews Natalie Merchant
"I am a thing of beauty."
My favorite is The Invisible Man, because in great scene Invisible Man

Me like that.
--Cookie Monster, asked by Time to name Favorite Movie Monster.
"I'm a good influence on everyone I meet-- but they don't realize it until decades later. That's what I keep telling myself."

"The other name for that is executive."
--Dave + Bob
"It's hard to get excited about a company that has delusions of mediocrity."
John Lammers on IDD
not better than sex,
pretty ok afterwards.
--Pete's ESP Lager
The biggest problem with y'all is that you are riddled with sin. I'll betcha you've got unicorns, rock'n'roll records, secular books, Nintendos, Smurfs cartoons on them fancy VCR tapes, and other stuff that draws you toward Satan's stronghold."
"Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. And my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it."
--W. Somerset Maugham
"As they say in my country, the only thing that separates us from the animals are mindless superstition and pointless ritual."
--Latka Gravas in "Taxi"
