You guys are leaving out a bunch. Check McGill University's Queer student association:

I want reboots that begins inside a currently running reboot. Parker gets bitten, falls asleep, wakes up and it's a totally different actor who gets bitten again, then falls asleep again, and wakes up ANOTHER different actor.

commented on Fox News: The Pope Doesn't Know Anything About Economics
From the article:
If you give until it hurts, freely and out of love, and seek nothing temporal in return, you have built up treasure in Heaven. But if the government takes from you and redistributes your wealth to those whom the government has decided to benefit -- rich and poor alike -- what merit is there in that for you?
Republicans showing their true colors again... to them, charity is all about "what's in it for me?"

seandr @28 nailed it as usual.
Seriously, your comments almost always make me: 1) despise the human race even more than I normally do, and, 2) nod in agreement.
nice job you magnificent bastard.
commented on Why Is America So Unequal?
Perhaps it's because one of the major political forces in this country is constantly telling people that the be-all, end-all of human achievement is to be on the top of the hill, that too much is never enough, that you have to own everything or you're not working hard.
Their competitive, me-vs.-everyone mentality creates a society resembling a lottery, where one person wins a grotesquely overinflated jackpot while the remaining 300 million get a little poorer.
