“All men naturally desire knowledge. An indication of this is our esteem for the senses; for apart from their use we esteem them for their own sake, and most of all the sense of sight. Not only with a view to action, but even when no action is contemplated, we prefer sight, generally speaking, to all the other senses. The reason of this is that of all the senses sight best helps us to know things, and reveals many distinctions.”—Aristotle, first lines of Metaphysics (translated by Hugh Tredennick) – It becomes apparent, though, that Aristotle didn’t watch much TV.

Just don’t do it. It doesn’t matter what the “word on the street” is in “guy world,” this is not sexy or cute.
The Life Rules girls generally don’t judge the sexual proclivities of others, but if this approach gets you laid, you need to head down to your nearest free clinic STAT for a full work-up because you probably are the proud new owner of a serious case of the clap.

But we’re going to pass next week. No sarcasm. I mean that.

BTW Kathleen Sullivan failed because of hubris…she did not study because she thought she was all too cool for school
To be fair, if I had famous and/or well connected parents like John-John or Pataki’s daughter, or if I already had a job and was licensed in another state, I wouldn’t be overly concerned about passing the bar exam either. -MATC
“I believe that the magic and power of a story can encourage and fascinate you. In prehistory, outside the cave it was dark, but inside they had a fire and somebody was good at telling stories. Every time I write, I think of the cave. We are one group, outside it’s dark and wolves are howling, but I have a story to tell.”—Haruki Murakami (via supersonicelectronic)
“- Why do we feel it’s necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
- I don’t know. That’s a good question.
- That’s when you know you’ve found somebody special.
When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.”—Pulp Fiction (via saintsorsexaddicts)
