Polygamy and killing babies

"Hey, can you marry two people at once?"

"Um, no, that's polygamy. It's illegal."

"Oh, well, that's stupid! You should be able to do whatever you want, like kill children."

GLobal warming

"I read this thing where the gas companies did some "research" and their scientists say that instead of ruining our atmosphere, all the Carbon dioxide we're releasing by burning fossil fuels will create a Greening Effect and transform earth into a fertile paradise. Even the deserts and the arctic will be green and covered with flowers."

"Oh, well, That makes sense."

-My roomate, explaining why some people don't "believe in" global warming, and someone listening to her overwhelmed with disgust. In a Sheri's restuarant in Tacoma, WA at midnight.

I hate it when people claim not to "believe in" things that don't require their faith, as though by making that claim they could just will it all to be untrue. I defeat you, Global Warming, with the powers of my MIND!

Seen on S. 10th Street in Tacoma WA at 11 pm:

A large group of girls, all wrapped in blankets, standing in a small boat which was parked on a trailer at curbside. Just standing there. In a boat. In the street. At 11 on a Thursday night.

"Go down, yeah, go down and down and down and then you'll see it."

"Down? Like DOWN?"

"Down. Go Down."

Wow! I've never eaten a Rolo like this before, if you bite through them, you can see the caramel inside. I'm glad it's really caramel instead of, like, caramel-flavored nougat.
Ted Bundy
Submitted by Alice on Wed, 02/18/2004 - 9:16pm. Bizarre
"So, what would YOU, the ethical subjectivist, say to Ted Bundy when he announces that it is right for him to rape and kill you because he will derive pleasure from it? Anyone?"

"Uh, isn't there another way we could discuss this chapter?"

Crazy Spaniards

"I wanted to see the Holy Grail, but there was a wedding."

"Hmm, crazy Spaniards, always getting married."

"They're catholic like that."

Embarassingly enough, two of my friends and me standing outside the chapel of the holy grail in Valencia, as we tried not to interrupt the first of many weddings we witnessed that weekend.
