“But now I just sit around and think. I can’t sleep at night, and I wake up in the morning feeling worse than I did the day before. It takes me hours before I don’t feel as if my body was cranky with me. I sometimes think it gets better during the day only because I go numb, not because the crankiness stops. I never feel right. I’m always full of aches and paints that come from nowhere. I look at myself in the mirror, and a sick man looks back at me — the kind of man I wouldn’t trust to do his share, if we were on a job together.” Rogue Moon by Algis Budrys

app idea

social app that connects people who want an STD test with other people who want an STD test. then you have unprotected sex and just one of you gets tested and you split the cost. 

since you presumably have whatever your last partner has, both of you getting tested is redundant and wasteful. this saves money, and you get to have some fun!

“she’s my nightmare: a liberated, sexually adventurous urban woman”

has anyone ever considered the possibility that line (often mis-attributed to Herman Goering and others) “When I hear ‘culture’ that’s when I reach for my Browning” is actually about Robert Browning, and not about guns?
