Quotations with links

"One large problem with selling our private information is the ratchet effect. Once you have divulged a piece of personal information to a party, it is out of your control for all time, since no piece of information is ever forgotten anymore (the ratchet). That party now can sell the information bit along, as well as aggregate it with other information you previously sold (or they otherwise obtained) to draw a much more detailed picture of you than you might wish to be known. What is the cost to me of this aggregated dataset about me that will exist into perpetuity? I have no way to even begin calculating that. So I try to never give anyone any information anymore."--R

"Ancient Hebrew did not have written vowels. The phrase 'evening and morning,' in Genesis 1, might have originally been 'chaos and order' or 'conceal and consider.'"--JL

"We have no effective opposition party in the United States, but we are all of us here on the Internet, pledging holy allegiance to the passionate insane delusion of a two-party, representative system."--John Lockwood

"And even though I promised I wouldn't lie to the gatekeepers to get what I want... I take it back. I'll lie as much and as often as I need to. I'm a greedy little monster. My body is MINE, and if I want to alter it, then I will. Fuck having Trans Enough reasons."--Ryan

"Pagans have seen first hand that the religious opinions of Presidents have been used in the past by government agencies to deny us our legal rights. What would happen if our vice president thought we should be supernaturally eradicated?"--whatsername

"It overcomes the severe deficiencies of the numeric scale, particularly the bit about 10 pain being 'the worst pain you can imagine,' as no matter how bad your pain is, you can always imagine it being worse so in theory level 10 pain doesn't exist."--Payne Hertz

"Our companies are happy to outsource jobs to lower wage countries - maybe we should outsource American CEOs to other parts of the world."--Rev. Paul Ratzlaff

"It's better, paraphrasing Gene Debs, to vote for what you want and not get it than to vote for what you don't want and get it."--Bill Perdue

"What are you asking? Why certain cis women are 'hurt' by trans women claiming equal status as them? -shrug- I figure I'll understand it about when someone also can answer the question about how it is exactly that gay marriage threatens the institution of 'family values,' etc. etc."--belledame222

"It's not about getting noticed, it's about being found. I maintain this site so I can be found when you google my name."--Jeremy Stein

"For George Will, whether something is worthwhile or not depends on whether it expands government power and spending or not. For normal human beings, it depends on whether enough good will come out of the program to justify the money it would cost to create it. And while the American elite have borrowed libertarian language like Will's for decades, what they really think is that a government action's value depends on whether it gives them more money or not."--alex

"I'd live in a goddamn cardboard box under a freeway overpass before I'd submit to a goddamn "homeowners" assholeciation. Same goes for a gate community."--Dr. Phair and Balanced Fill

"The thing I love love love most about the typical North American university campus is very simple: this is the only place left in society here that's physically designed for living without cars."--Sean Savage
