{Intensely Dislikes}
Mother Teresa, and yes I'm serious. Prednisone, Plath's The Bell Jar, and the movie Se7en -- they make me want to kill myself and that's bad. Communism. Horror films / scary movies. The smell of weed. Politics. Close-minded, hypocritical religions/people. Spelling mistakes and bad grammar. Insects, especially spiders and bees. All the stupid people, especially if they're running the country. Obnoxious children and their (likely equally obnoxious) parents. Drunk people being loud and/or acting stupid. Fire alarms going off in the middle of the night, especially when it's cold out.

"I believe that people who make strides toward the future are rejected by those clinging to the present, or even worse, the past. It seems ideas presented to those without the foresight or intelligence to understand them are often rejected as pure lunacy or in the worst case, crimes." -- Chris on the VHEMT Yahoo list

VIRGO: "Dear God, please make the world a better place, and don't screw it up like you did the last time."

"Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind." -- Bertrand Russell

"To me, those who can justify the cruelty and neglect of a divine power either lack morality, or they possess a morality so foreign to me as to be completely incomprehensible." -- [info]rpeate

"I...hunger, Scott--for a joy, a rapture, beyond all comprehension...It...consumes me." -- Dark Phoenix, Uncanny X-Men 136

Oz: We should figure out what kinda deal this is. I mean, is it a -- a gathering, a shindig or a hootenanny?
Cordelia: What's the difference?
Oz: Well, a gathering is brie, mellow song stylings; shindig, dip, less mellow song stylings, perhaps a large amount of malt beverage; and hootenanny, well, it's chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny.

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move." -- Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, 1980
