"The essence of Christianity is told to us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your fucking mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions." Frank Zappa

No-- even if you offered $1 million, on your knees or other things?
I'm just not interested in you-- you are shallow, uneducated and, frankly, boring.
What's worse, is you have a masochistic streak that is frankly, disgusting.
Your first post to me, was after I had posted a silly reference to Monty Python's "The Holy Grail".
My reaction to your comment? Disgust.
I haven't forgotten that.
That wasn't you I posted to you moron.

You've spent so much time down at the ToolBox you no longer know how to interact with females. Sick.

What is funny is that I just got blocked by a YouTube channel for informing them that the book that they were trying to get pulled from a school curriculum was a modern rendition of Shakespeare's 'King Lear'. They didn't like finding out that most of Shakespeare's work was pretty pornographic.

Wasn't he called the "bawdy poet"?

I think he would have been a fun lay. It's always good to laugh *during*.

I was born far too late in history. I would've made a great milkmaid.

Hey strangers! Been a while. I got tired of the trolls, so I quit posting. However I'm looking for a quote. I could swear it was Asimov and I know for a fact it was in the introduction to a scifi story in one of his anthologies. It was on the question of whether it was possible to know something in some way other that observing or measuring. I've look through a number of my current anthologies but can't find it, and Google turns up nothing. Anybody have the original quote or a good reference?
