“Do you have any more pictures of yourself with a beard? I’ve jacked off to the first one about thirty times, and it’s starting to lost its novelty. Maybe with a goatee? That would be irresistible.”—an OkCupid message I got in 2007 and just read today. Thanks guys!
“What happens between two people who’re attracted to each other is so complicated and full of weird intangibles — even two great, nice, attractive people who get set up with each other don’t necessarily have chemistry or even get along — that what you think you know almost certainly isn’t enough of a reason to potentially kibosh this guy. And while it’s annoying, a lot of times a guy who you think is a completely awful fit for your friend could in fact be her perfect (“perfect”) counterpart.”—Good point, Ask A Dude

“all my feelings come in waves like nausea and have the effect of making me feel tearful and weak. I realized that when I was away from home I was always aware of myself, of my bodily feelings. On the other hand, when I was at home or in a safe place I was able to concentrate on things other than myself.”—someone i know from the internet liked something on the internet from someone i’ve never met, quoting a book i won’t read, about agoraphobia
“Over the course of the last year, it has become clear that the legalization of marijuana is no longer a question of if but a question of when. Because of this campaign, millions now understand it’s time to develop an exit strategy for the failed war on marijuana. Across the state our opponents, including many newspaper editorial boards that failed to properly understand Prop. 19, repeatedly stated that their quibbles were not with legalization in general. When we come back with a new initiative in 2012, there will be a seat at the table for all of these new stakeholders. And we will be coming back, stronger than ever.”—Oaksterdam founder Richard Lee, on the loss of California’s Proposition 19, the initiative to legalize marijuana. (via newsweek)
