"Many smart people say only cockroaches will survive a nuclear bomb even though humans can't, many ignorant people brush it off, and then there are the people who are educated and stupid that made the bombs in the first place. But, cockroaches are cold-blooded and would die in a nuclear winter. Humans would adapt to it... poorly, at first, but we've done it before and humans never change the habit of adapting, whether or not we agree with the change. Even in the radiation, many survive, many mutate to prolong the little life left. We humans love to fight, and the fight we will always hold above all others is the fight to survive. So I have to say this: fuck the roaches."-Kathryn J. Blair

"We humans love to fight, and the fight we will always hold above all others is the fight to survive."-Kathryn J. Blair (small piece of previous quote)

"Other than death, I think there is no balance that is absolute. Everything is a double-edged knife. But when I say "double-edged knife" I don't mean just the negative stuff- though a great many people find the negatives easier to see- but more like walking a crooked tight-rope made of sharp steel. If someone make a misstep, they cut themselves... and the effect that cut has is different for everyone. There are almost infinite, if not infinite, ways to deal with any one situation. But even if two different people chose the same way to handle that same situation, and did it the exact same way, the outcome would still be different, due to countless factors- many of which are always unknown."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I'm a wanna-believe skeptic."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I have hi-jacked your attempted grasp on sanity."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Pets? That word, or plural noun if you prefer, is so demoralizing and vague. Our "pets" are just another part of us. Elvis belongs to us all, the rat belongs to my mother, and I belong to Lila just as much she belongs to me. Freyja fits in comfortably, though I can think of no label that would fit her place inside the torn puzzle we once called a family."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Ignorance is bliss, because knowledge makes you aware. With awareness, eventually comes understanding. Understanding rapidly progresses into realization, and you realize about what you see, instead of just watching blindly. If at this point you still retain some dim amount of optimism, you see everything retrospectively as a cynic... This is why there are many cynics and few realists. Yet, though intelligence brings so much depression, few of the wise would trade it back for the stupidity and ignorance they once thought was bliss. That is an unavoidable truth that I know. That is the conclusion almost everyone who reflects upon life, knowledge, or truth eventually reaches."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The truth is not right, just, and good. However, neither is it wrong, immoral, and evil. It's just... there. Many writers and philosopher say this. We can see the base and it's reasons, the cause and effects, and even the eventually outcome. We often break it down, bit by bit, to the smallest level. But when doing it, we concentrate on the thing first asked about or the example given. Or we use human notions to color the very purpose of discoloring it at all. But, when concentrating only on the truth itself, the complete impartiality and utter uncaring of what's what, one can see that truth is just an existing concept."-Kathryn J. Blair

"No concept is a truth."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There must be a matching truth behind all thoughts put into the link connecting personal human thoughts and a somehow consistent concept."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If, at this point, you still retain some dim amount of optimism, you see everything retrospectively as a cynic... This is why there are many cynics and few realists."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The reason we are born is to learn the hardships and struggles of life, and the joys inbetween. The reason we live is a purpose we must each carve out for ourselves. And the reason we die is so we can finally get a little damn peace."-Kathryn J. Blair

"As a kid, I focused my maternal instincts towards stuffed creatures and inanimate furs. I seem to have worked my way up to small furry house pets that purr. And I'm pretty damn sure it should stay that way."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I'm not that big a nerd anymore. I'm more of a geek these days."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I've had this body a long time. I've learned lots about it. Just don't ask me what goes on beneath the surface- I failed anatomy five times. Hey, Latin words are hard to memorize!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Difference between a realist and a cynic? The depth of knowledge."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Oh yeah, that was... I can't even think of a word that fits here."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Most of humanity is stupid. The world never stops breeding perpetual ignorance. The only scholars these days are people who have enough money already to continue learning, and the ONLY use for a philosophy major now is for becoming a philosophy teacher yourself. Philosophy has no use on resume in modern times- unless you pull a double major in therapy or something. But that would cause you enough stress to need your own therapist."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The only thing holding that dress up are two miracles of plastic surgery at work."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Since when do I talk for other people's amusement?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Superman's not retarded, just a bonehead."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Run awaaaayy! It's something you don't understand!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"The fact that I got so worked up about a wrecked statue in a Marvel- sorry, DC- cartoon tells you either I have layers upon layers of issues, or that those chimichangas finally decided on their revenge. And since I don't remember the last time I actually ate a chimichanga, the layered issues is the safest bet."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Anyone who's done nothing wrong is doomed for failure. Hell, we're all doomed to fail in the end."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Of all the bad ways to go, I don't think you can beat being eaten by a T-Rex on the crapper."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Where do all these super-villain lunatics find their minions?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"The real difference between accepted society and criminals is timing. High-ranked criminals are the ones who learn the truths of life too early. Small-time criminals and flunkies are those who learn too late. But the members of that so respected society are the lab rats that turned out like they were supposed to."-Kathryn J. Blair

"That anyone has control over another is an illusion. Even parents don't have control, only influence. If a young child realizes this, they do as they please, never looking at how that will affect the course of their lives in the future. I know this to be the truth, because I speak from experience."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You can't give advice on women, because each woman is a different person."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's comforting to know I'm not alone in my opinion... or maybe it's depressing to see that I just have the same thoughts as everybody else. Whatever."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Well, that kinda worked itself out."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Does anything about ANYTHING makes sense anymore? The more you analyze something, the more you see all the flaws in logic."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If I compared America to anything, it would be a family. A very fucked up family. We compete with our sibling states, rebel against the government's so-called guidance like any child against a parent, and don't give a shit at all if we screw each other over despite how it affects the one being petty. But if someone else pushes us, we unite to crush them completely and make sure they regret it forever. Then we go right back to in-fighting. But we never let the ones who pushed our buttons forget that we will destroy them entirely if they ever try again. In short, we love to hate each other, but if someone gets in our way, our wrath is terrible and relentless."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The Japanese, for instance, are well-known for their unending politeness, and I realize that Americans are best known for our rudeness, but it just saves time. While the Japanese would be drinking tea sip by sip, then sit down and relay dishonest pleasantries, followed by small talk about nothing of consequence, before finally doing a doe-si-doe chore of negotiating, we've been deep in the water of work already. After all, America's relatively new for a nation, and we want to get things done for all the time we lost getting into this world."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Everyone in America knows the nation and government is screwed up, and we wouldn't have it any other way."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Art and writing are two sides of the same coin, bonded together by their common principle- inspiration. The same way a designer sees a single section of a sleeve, then builds a whole dress around an idea, a writer can hear four words in a pleasing order and create layered poems."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Why is honesty considered a virtue when no one likes hearing it?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Don't bother buying a mystery novel. It's only a mystery the first time."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The root of all immaturity is self-centeredness."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Just because I studied doesn't mean I learned. Learning would require finding something I didn't already know."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It is a thin line between pride and arrogance."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If you could live forever, it would quickly become a curse for ANYONE. So many people say things like; "I wish I could live forever" or "I wanna to become immortal", but do they even think about how they feel about it? Few do. Most just say it because it has such a popular fantasy. And almost all the rest never think really about it before they voice this desire."-Kathryn J. Blair

"How could anyone stand to live for so-called eternity? Time would pass, leaving everyone and everything you know would be left behind. Your memories of them would fade... becoming so vague they might have well never been at all."-Kathryn J. Blair

"In my personal opinion, life generally sucks."-Kathryn J. Blair

"What kind of Chinese Emperor isn't Chinese?!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Philosophy is but yet another time-killer."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's true, no one can hurt you like someone who loves you- they know all your dirty secrets."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Pride is important, but it does nothing for the dead."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I've learned to look for the best in people and every situation, because there is no other way to retain any sort of happiness when you're stuck in reality."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Why do people cheat? If they manipulate a game, what's the point in playing? It's not fun if you know the outcome without the experience."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I now have much wisdom, but have lost the conviction to do anything with it."-Kathryn J. Blair

"But it was state-of-the-art when we bought it!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"I used to say I couldn't be drafted because I was a girl, under 18, and labeled as Special Ed. Now they draft women too, I'm 21, but at least my mental and physical disabilities still protect me."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Just because I'm a fan doesn't mean I'm blind to your flaws."-Kathryn J. Blair

"My cat is like a barnacle, but my computer is like a lesser vital organ."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Unless you're acting as a meat shield, don't try being the hero in a life-or-death situation. If you die, you can't help anyways. In fact, your death may just up the ante for the rest. Do what you can, and nothing more."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If you have to think it through, it isn't really an emotion."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Only in Gotham do Halloween masks announce that you should fear any freak that wears them."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I'm always straight to the point... except when I'm on a tangent."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The best part of having a stalker is knowing they'll always be there for you. Unless you decide to run them over or something."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Slang is degrading our language to mere grunts and noises. I guess those 'dawgs' finally found a way to be literal."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Of all modern religions, I'd have to say the Amish are the most reminiscent of that of ancient Egypts'. They center around the afterlife more than any other concept and greatly about living life for the sake of what will happen when it's over."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The references to "the innocence of a child" are complete bullshit. Children are more selfish than any "well-adjusted" adult, which is a cause and effect for them to see in black and white and little if any grey. That "innocence" people speak of is because this. But the fact that they make no moral compromises is mostly because they never bother to look outside themselves, not because they harbor little corruption in their own hearts."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If America's power goes, so will we. Let's face it, nobody else likes us."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Three thousand years from now, assuming a nuclear holocaust or something like that does not occur, no one will care if we set aside our morals, as long as we survived. When people look back on ancient wars, they see the outcome, not the morals of long-dead people."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If you think about it, excess is the root of evil deeds. I guess that makes an obsessive person like me evil. Huh. How 'bout that."-Kathryn J. Blair

"What's with this "20% less sugar!" crap? If I didn't want sugar, I wouldn't have bought poptarts!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"What's so great about J-Pop? Why do the Japanese insist on making people with weak voices into stars? On a related note, the same can be said for most anime songs too- and THAT is unforgivable. It lowers the quality of animes like Gundam Seed to a small extent, where one of the four main characters is supposed to be a worshiped popstar."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You all suck. So sayth the Queen."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Yes, knowledge is passed around making it hard to tell fact from rumor, but the sharing of information is even greater as a strength than as a weakness. It is known many in the same way, instead of feeling something was done for a personal reason. It is uncolored by emotions other than those you find on your own, giving a clearer definition to it's role affecting later events. And it continues on through the ages."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Personal experiences mean nothing to the people who write the history books."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The solution for economic problem of building the pyramids and Egypt's wealth was an obvious duh(- yes, I'm aware that's an oxymoron. It's just a neat little term I like to use.) The money was recycled. Grave robbers of the Pharaoh's tombs came in many varieties. There were notorious criminals, priests, people hired by the Pharaoh in times of need, and of course the guardians to the tombs themselves. That's why the SMART Pharaohs decided to get buried in the Valley of The Kings. The pyramids are flashy and show up to the inhabitants even now, but that attracted thieves like mosquitoes to an open vein. But the Valley of the Kings is made up of countless pits and caverns. Even with modern resources, we haven't yet found all the tombs there."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There weren't many people back then, true, when compared to the present. But Egypt had a long, long history, and much of it held them as the top sphinx. But those people were always ruled with no toleration to treason of even the very smallest of crimes. Any word that could imply anything but reverence the Pharaoh, and being killed where you where stand was the best death you could possibly hope for. The Pharaohs were second only to the gods themselves. They were like the demi-gods of Greece. Literally- it was believed that the very first Pharaoh was a god himself. Knowing that, it's easy to compare such an example to how the Catholic Church ruled in the Dark Ages."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Incredible knowledge from Egypt is MUCH easier to lose than you seem to think. Things that are lost in translation alone is what would seem as distant as the Earth to Jupiter. After all, you ever see a subtitled movie? That's with current translators that have thing in a guided format. The Rosetta stone couldn't possibly cover everything, since scribes where schooled rigorously from age 7. And then those hieroglyphics were translated in to ancient text, so that had to be translated as well just to turn into something anyone understood before. And that goes on for a while. And so each archaeology team has to work everything out together, trying to decide what the hieroglyphics say at all. And of course, not everything was written down."-Kathryn J. Blair

"In the old days, a wide girth was considered attractive, showing you had great wealth. Now, you show you're rich by looking like you start everyday by yuckin' it up in the toilet."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Every day for two years, I'd ask myself, "Will someone kill me today?" then follow that thought with "I half hope they do.""-Kathryn J. Blair

"If you take no action, guilt is only another form of self-pity."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There is no such thing as unconditional love. Unconditional kindness, maybe, but not love. Anyone who says otherwise is just repeating an expression, stupid, or merely full of shit. No, not even the best dogs have that so-called unconditional love. If you are cruel to a dog, they won't love you. See?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Here's the thing about powerhouses; As long as the frame still stands, any power lost can be restored one way or another."-Kathryn J. Blair

"As they used to say in the days of old, "ye all suck.""-Kathryn J. Blair

"I don't care about your traumatic past. All of us have had painful experiences in our lives, so that's hardly a valid excuse. It's what you do now that defines you."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Boredom is the bane of my existence."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I'm no shrink, though I've been seeing one or another since kindergarten, so I know the gist of their mind games and mental tests pretty well. Me, I'm more of a philosopher. I've found this to be the answer: Everyone has terrifying, depressing, and perverted thoughts. It takes courage to admit them, but more useful is the wisdom to know when not to."-Kathryn J. Blair

"What constitutes an author anymore? A 6-year-old could write the worst story ever, complete with almost every spelling error there is, and post it online. But more and more official books become 'online only', so what would that make the 6-year-old kid?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Most that are self-righteous can also be called judgmental fools."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The only just part of life is the part to just try, no matter what. That's why I hate life, by the way."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Who hits a fan fiction writer up for money anyways?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"When a reader of my caliber is really inside the world of the story, being pulled out just because of a mere spelling error makes the disappointment devastating."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Hey! Cat! Decide whether you want to play or be petted. I can't do both! I'm just a frail human with easily punctured skin."-Kathryn J. Blair

"We all have natural faults and talents, cultivated vices and gifts. Compatibility among these things is how a friend is found."-Kathryn J. Blair

"My life has well conditioned my nose for any natural smell of my own. Well, unless you cut my intestines out and shoved them in my face. I'm pretty sure that would make me gag... if I still had enough air."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The sensationalism of swearing has been reduced to being a cheap, trivial gag."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There is just no way I'm wrong, absolutely NO WAY in the hell that is life!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"I prefer to put more emphasis on my opinions than on facts. Only facts can be reformed without your consent."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Never piss off a bulimic. Their retaliation can be frightening."-Kathryn J. Blair

"That's new. I've never heard of a Chinese man being mistaken for a tree before."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Of course light can be dark. Ever hear of black light bulbs?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"It was just a kick in the head from my old friend, OCD."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Wherever there is power, danger lies hidden."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Without control, there is no such thing as power... only chaos."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Book genres are a lot like music. Even if there are certain kinds you don't care for, there are always a few pieces from it that you still like."-Kathryn J. Blair

"No one can cop an attitude like a cat."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Mom! The Nazis ate my jellybeans!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Don't get on the plane. Just think upon that."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You can not change the past, only the way you view it in hindsight."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Behold the three most powerful creatures in anime; an angsty action hero, a magical schoolgirl, and the all-mighty plot device god. This piece of wisdom is sponsored by plot holes."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You only have dignity if you intertwine decency with your pride; when the decency is broken off, all that is left is a hollow ego."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I prefer sounding like an ass over sounding like an idiot."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I tend to feel bad for comic relief characters. It's like being born somewhere where your race, gender, or some other innate quality is considered inferior through no fault of your own."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Anime is notorious for being full of plot holes and faulty logic. But anime shouldn't be blamed for those problems. No, it's the fact that anime is fiction, and ALL works of fiction have errors of this type. A writer could spend 20 years writing a book, consumed with putting together every small detail, and there would still be things that don't mesh perfectly. So why does anime get singled out?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"In my book, if you don't love explosions, there's no way you can really be an American."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There's something very wrong about a legendary bandit bringing a stray girl to a kleptomaniac help group."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I love your stylish dementia."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The only time one can control everything is when they write a story."-Kathryn J. Blair

"War tends to bring out emotions in unpredictable ways, to say the least."-Kathryn J. Blair

"One who is ruled by confidence becomes arrogant; one who is ruled by depression is filled with despair; one who is ruled by desperation ends up pathetic."-Kathryn J. Blair

"When did it happen, I wonder, that everyone's one expectation for me was to expect me to fail?"-Kathryn J. Blair (thought up while in a character's mind frame)

"I have several nasty flea bites, courtesy of my precious little one... wanna see?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"To all those who believe in the 'that which does not kill you makes you stronger' crap, enlightenment can be found in one word: paralyzation."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Something doesn't have to be a good thing to be cool. I mean, refrigerators are cool, but they contribute to the greenhouse effect."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Ugh. I hate acoustic versions. I can't think of a single song that sounds better that way than the original... or even good at all, for that matter."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I have yet to decide what I am the Queen of, but I definitely have a throne, made of the finest white porcelain."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If you can find a flaw in my logic, I'd be happy to hear it. That way, I could argue my point some more."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The macabre carries it's own type of beauty."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Despite what most think, I love efficiency. After all, it's possibly the best way to prolong my periods of laziness with the least amount of effort."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Why are rabbit feet considered good luck charms? They obviously didn't work for their previous owners."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Inflation has attacked my strawberry milk! Dammit!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"The fact that I got so worked up about a wrecked statue in a Marvel- sorry, DC- cartoon tells you either I have layers upon layers of issues, or that those chimichangas finally decided on their revenge.

"Did he just change his pants on the spot?!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"They turned a prisoner in a pad-locked straight jacket loose in a stadium full of people to play a card game? What message is 4Kids trying to send here? Not to mention, the last episode revolved around the notion sleeping through physics class is no big deal as long as you believe in the luck of the draw... 4Kids turns one of the top 5 mangas (the original one) into pure crap to create future criminals and gamblers?"-Kathryn J.

"Did anyone else notice that fish was still squirming around when it was being thrown in the curry pot?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"So-called "ultimate" attacks can be misleading. The one called "Saotome Ultimate Final Attack" consists of running away until you figure out a way to beat your opponent or actually get away and train to fight another day. Then you have endless different kinds where they are only the "ultimate" attack until the writers think up a new one. And then you have the one most often applied at anime conventions: "Fangirl Ultimate Attack: Glomp of Doom!""-Kathryn J. Blair

"Great, a whining dragon."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Everyone is lonely. This is because being selfish eventually brings you that feeling, even if you are surrounding by people who care. And everyone is selfish, whether or not they mean to be or not. Yet selfishness is not necessarily a bad thing in it's own right. Your personal thoughts, beliefs, and feelings color your every action, and your resulting choices. Any choice you make is ultimately made you. Being selfish is, effectively, acting for yourself, for one's own reasons, sometimes despite the fact someone else may be hurt in the process. But, though someone is hurt, you gained something by your choice, even if all you had brought yourself is self-inflicted pain- unintentionally or not. Whenever anything is gained, by choice or circumstance, it comes at a price. The magnitudes of a price can run from seeming insignificant to things that are later labeled the means the was justified by the end. After you understand these facts, you see that all of the choices every person has ever made was influenced by their own view of themselves, causing them to feeling like no one truly knows their "real" feelings. And this cycle shall continue, never ending, for as long as sentient beings draw breath. THAT is the reason loneliness exists and always will."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's good to see the age-old practice of embarrassing your younger sibling is universal."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Pride is like an inner-ego. Or more specifically, it's usually a combination of the light you see yourself in and honor. Sometimes people mistake pride for honor, but honor lies in doing the right thing, whereas pride is more like an ego turned inward to justify any doubts you have if things might go badly."-Kathryn J. Blair

"'A hero's not afraid to die.' It's a pretty common thing to think. And in many situations, it's a noble thing to do... if not necessarily true, due to basic instinct. But few can discern the difference between a noble death and giving up in the face of death. After all, excluding martyrism, you're not very helpful dead."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Cutting long hair always has a greatly symbolic meaning, from a need for a change in the way you view yourself to a lesser form of masochism. No matter how you spin it, your hair is a part of you and for it to be long, you must have taken great care of it for a long time."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Lucidity is never the first priority when you get woken up abruptly."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It seems very ironic that the majority of the people who consider 'hell' to be a curse word are mostly Christians and Catholics, who actually believe the concept as a real place... and I doubt it's because they are thinking that way because the literal meaning of 'curse'. Of course, it stops being funny very quickly, and stays annoying for the rest of your life."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Writer's block is a bitch. I personally find positive results by bouncing ideas off some, even the one they don't really seem worth mentioning. Find someone who will listen, but not say anything back unless bluntly asked. I've that works wonders. I've come up with many great thing by just going over random ideas out loud when a second party is paying attention. Most of the time, what they say in return really doesn't matter at all, just having someone listen and knowing they CAN help works, even if you decide even their truly great ideas aren't relevant to your final decision. And keeping their ideas, both good and bad, in back of your mind is more useful than you realize even when you're done."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Every piece of information, no matter how factual, is tainted by perception even when passed on by the impartial. So if rumors hold a kernel of truth at their core, does that mean that they are just as honest as a written report if you look deep enough? But if words are taken at face-value, how does that affect the perceptions of the next piece of information? How do you know what is real and what is not? Obviously, it is inevitable that gossip left unhindered will spin out of control."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There's no bond stronger than one born from mutual loneliness."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I hate it when people pick on beginners; such blatant hypocrisy is disgusting. Obviously, no one starts off with experience."-Kathryn J. Blair

"With the death of so many of their loved ones, people always blame someone for it, even if they have to create a scapegoat from nothing that resembles logic. The only exception are natural disasters- and sometimes they still blame someone, like with Hurricane Katrina.

"Never promise someone you won't get angry, only promise not to take any anger out on them."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The government thinks I'm speicl."-Kathryn J. Blair

"The attractiveness of superheroes has nothing to do with emotional vs. physical. First and foremost, they staying in shape in their line of work is a do-or-die. Then there is the fact that they need to look good in tight and/or leotards. And finally, DC is imaged-based, and looking at ugly characters the whole time is not a very appealing notion."-Kathryn J. Blair

"When you mentioned how you still remember the first time you saw the ocean, a vague memory came to me of my first time seeing it... I was only two, or three at most, and even though I had to have had a short attention span like any toddler, I was enthralled and watched it the whole time we drove to the beach through the car window. Reaching the beach was even better, because I could SMELL and FEEL the ocean on the wind."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You know, the OCs were worked in so naturally it didn't occur to me to reject them. I must say, that's truly impressive."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's rather ironic that if someone makes a few choice comments they get called perverts, but even if that same person has sex, they aren't considered as such during the act."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Never call your brother a son-of-a-bitch. People look stupid when they insult themselves."-Kathryn J. Blair

"You know, I think I've figured out the secret behind the success of book series like the Sweet Valley sagas and whatever replaces things like the old 'The Babysitter's Club' for now: The root of it is because they are read pretty much almost exclusively by 10-year-olds and up to 16 or 17 if you push it- personally, I started on that stuff around 7, though that was mostly because used reading as an escape and had no friends. In other words, the age-range of the readers begins with those starting puberty and ends with those finishing puberty. So it doesn't really matter how minor the drama because the hormones do most of the work. The writers don't really have to put in much effort- as long as they release the books quickly, the quality of their half-assed writing doesn't matter too much."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Looking back, I have to say puberty, at least for a woman, is almost the same as being on being on our period. Except it lasts for years instead of being over in days."-Kathryn J. Blair

"That was... strange. But hey, you managed to pull it off- though I'm STILL not sure how..."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Personally, I don't think homosexuality is wrong, but fully admit it goes against the natural order. But self-awareness DOES affect sex. Many animals feel only pain during intercourse, but don't rebel against the instinct to procreate. But the closer to sentience the animal, the more pleasure they find in the act. And humans are the only completely self-aware species on this planet. Besides, I think we need a little LESS reproduction, what with the current population."-Kathryn J. Blair

"All pranks are essentially traps, no matter the variation- NEVER underestimate a prankster."-Kathryn J. Blair

"'You can only have one home.' If I had thought any other way, I just knew I'd never get home again, no matter how long I waited for my parents to come back for me. If I was patient enough, if I survived even long after I gave up, I was almost sure my parents wouldn't leave me in that hellhole forever- or at least until I died. ...Too bad that by the time I got back, the damage was done."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's rather annoying how many people ask if I like bungee-jumping after telling them I love heights. How does enjoying high places translate to enjoying falling from high places? I love explosions too- that doesn't mean I want to be caught in one!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"I don't get why some people are so against accepting charity... why turn down free stuff?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Do you know the difference between lying to yourself and denial? When someone tells a lie, there a chance it will be accepted as the truth; when someone denies a possible answer, it is because they believe it but refuse to acknowledge it. So if one lies themselves, they tend to alter their perception of the world they live in, and those in denial know the truth but reject reality."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I think something just died inside me. Hopefully, it was just a nasty germ."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Did the scary weasel get bopped on the head a lot during that song? No, wait... that's Little Bunny Fufu."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's true, it doesn't matter how smart you are, if you don't do the work, you fail. I had a similar problem in school; I never did homework, and that lowered my grades to barely passing."-Kathryn J. Blair

"There are exactly 7 reasons why humans will always be Earth's reigning species: self-awareness, external comprehension, the ability to adapt, experience, opposable thumbs, elimination of competition, and imminent destruction- we'd so decide to blow up the planet before letting a bunch of bugs take our place at the top after we finish making it damn near uninhabitable."-Kathryn J. Blair

"I never get to complain enough!"-Kathryn J. Blair

"The beauty of IM is that you can close the window if you don't want to deal with the person anymore, but it goes both ways. If you insult someone, they might leave so it's natural to fear insulting others if you only talk to people online, even if it's not a constant."-Kathryn J. Blair

"It's kind of weird that my social skills are better now than when I was around others. On second thought, that's not weird at all- I don't have to put up with their BS. It still seems like it should be weird though."-Kathryn J. Blair

"Hormones make us all crazy."-Kathryn J. Blair

"If scent is 95% of taste, why does coffee smell so good but taste so bad?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"Blame the deceased and do not repeat their mistakes. Blame the killers and succeed where they've failed. Blame the reason and strive to get stronger.

"America is definitely a free country; surely you've heard the term 'the price of freedom'?"-Kathryn J. Blair

"I hate rap, I hate it so much. There are songs that are exceptions of course, but for the most part, rap sucks. The most common problems with rap are that the lyrics are uncreative, it enhances the worst parts of slang (being in context others might not know because of location and constant changes and so on, regressing actual words to grunts, attempting to push it into legitimate English where it DOES NOT BELONG), is full of references that people who don't read trashy tabloids have no clue about, is racist (only black people aren't made fun of for attempting a career for it, but are in turn stereotyped) and, as general rule, religious or shallow and vulgar, usually in very demeaning ways."-Kathryn J.

"Asking someone if English isn't their first language when it turns out it actually is ranks somewhere between asking when the baby is due then finding out a woman is just disproportionately overweight and asking someone if they are a certain gender but end up being wrong in the 'potentially awkward and possibly even violently offensive depending on mental state' questions category."-Kathryn J.
