Maybe you've heard it before, but I hadn't.
Science will fly you to the moon. Religion will fly you into a building.

A co-worker had an absolutely horrible day yesterday. As I left for the day I reminded her,
"It's not worth heading to the roof unless you're carrying a sniper scope."
The book I'm reading has a chapter titled, "How to Not Have Your Face Eaten."
It's an excellent book.

We're 6" below average for the year, so the steady rain we're seeing is very welcomed.

I expect powerful writing from this author, but this struck me as unexpectedly beautiful.

I have given up my democratic prejudices and have willingly set the lower classes free to be completely taken care of by the upper classes. -- Robert Frost
He was only half-kidding, I think.

This week at work:
Boss: Where's Mary?
Me: On the roof.
Boss (laughing as he walks away): I better go and talk her down.
Mary (from her cubicle): What was that about?
Me: I lured him to the roof. Now go do your part.
Spotted while surfing the net:
If someone hates you for no reason, give the motherfucker a reason.

I don't actually *live* in the city, but I work downtown.
This morning after parking my car, as I'm walking to my place of employment I see this guy on the sidewalk. Shirtless, pants half-down his legs, acting like he's freezing to death and desperately trying to open the side door of a van. He knocks, looks around, jiggles the handle, knocks again, does the popsicle dance and then does it all over again.
At first I wondered how this fool managed to lock himself out of his work vehicle (it was a company van), especially since he was barely half dressed. When I looked back, he had moved down the street and was trying to open a car.
I hate the city.
