    Laughing at those who observe this, other than to laugh at those who observe it.

    Moderation.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    The most beautiful paintings in existence today are the ones which were not painted by anyone.

    It's Lent already? No, not doing anything.

    Edit: I guess today was/is Fat Tuesday. And I skipped lunch today. Does that make it Fast Tuesday?

    I gave up Catholicism for Lent.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    No. I ate a hot cross bun today with my afternoon snack and my coworker gave me an entire catechism because apparently eating hot cross buns today is totally wrong. I wouldn't know. I'm not Christian. I just like hot cross buns.

    Fasting is probably my least favorite part. I'm glad we only do it twice a year.
