The Fabled Land of the Lost One-Liner

When I'm engaged in debating with some person particularly disinclined to use thier cognitive capacities, whose chief arguement against abortion appears to hinge on the killer clause:

*I think women should choose life because otherwise I wouldn't be here*
I am always so tempted to respond I support abortion for that very reason

I never have.
More's the pity.

I had a theory that lost socks and lost hairpins and earrings and the books that go suddenly missing all go off to some other place through a wormhole in space and time, and occasionally they make their way back and reappear obviously changed by thier journey. Or else they have so much fun they just stay in happy sockland forever and wait to be reuinited with thier other half.

I kind of hope that if there are infinate parallel worlds and countless dimensions then in some other possible realm of existence some other self gets to say them.
And not get punched.

I usually put it into a story :D

Immense backlog of Friends entries to catch up on - wanted to ask: what was the ball for? Who invited you? Did you enjoy it? Pics of the red dress?! ;)

Ball was a fancy dress thing, and it was very fun, and I enjoyed it. Even though I don't have any pictures from it there's probably a few other people took floating around. I will ask and endavour to track some down.

"women should choose life because otherwise I wouldn't be here"???

Oh... so, had safe, legal, abortion been available to your mom, she would have aborted you? Did she tell you that? If so, that's a hell of a thing to grow up with.

My favorite is, "you wouldn't be here if your mom had gotten an abortion!"

Um.... duh? Oh, no, wait-- you've totally changed my mind! Because if I'd been sucked out when I was just a clump of cells, I'd spend eternity truly regretting the life I could have had.

I also wouldn't be here-- meaning, the me that I am now-- if my father had ejaculated 15 seconds earlier.

There's an argument you can use.

school dinners and concrete chips on shoulders


I think you need to learn to release your anger immediately without thinking about it, and take it out on the person who's angering you immediately. Women have too much to do without having to worry about being polite.
