Comments: Quote(s) of the Week

Finally, I am unchained from the Aristotlean ideal!

I can charge as much as I want on my, er, our credit cards, eat bad food, quit my job, nap in the afternoons when eating and drinking have overtaken me until it's time to rise to eat, drink, and charge again! Woo hoo!

Sarcasm? No, she's serious!

Atkins diet: Cut out carbs now, eat meat, bacon etc. Lose weight in your 20s/30s, have heart trouble in your 40s & 50s.

Smokers diet: Smoke now, lose your appetite. Lose weight in your 20s/30s, have lung trouble in your 40s and 50s.

What's the difference?

I'll agree with the won't & don't. I'm wondering if the "can't" was just a verbal flourish thrown in because it sounded nice.

You're in favor of personal responsibility? CAPITALIST!
At least a partial non sequitur, but it's the best I could do.
