    Very true... I look forward to a new Marvel or DC movie release as much as anyone. You can steadily move the boy to the year 2015, but you can't completely remove 1970 from the boy.

    Just read a quote on facebook: "If you haven't grown up by age 50, don't bother."

    its the yuppies fault - they started wearing designer sweat suits to nice restaurants in manhattan, acting like skyscraper incinerator fodder, and it's been all downhill from there. does anyone teach their children about behaving in public anymore?

    darkyr on January 19th, 2017
    I behaved in public once. Very awkward.

    jimdgar on May 2nd, 2018
    Behaving in public is vastly overrated.

    • Fishbum's finish cracked me up.

      throbbing and pulsating. music is not the first thing that comes to mind.

      skeeter on March 12th, 2015
      Yes, wvwoman! On my screen, the last word was below my line of sight so at first all I could see was "one big pulsating . . . ." My mind reeled with possibilities until I scrolled down and saw "symphony."

      universalmom on May 28th, 2015

      Is that a symphony in your pocket, or did you get a new ring tone?

          a tragedy just died yesterday. His name was Hawking.

          LLapp on March 17th, 2018
          That he invalidated your world view makes him an important challenge to your understanding of the world. Your reaction does not make him a tragedy. Rest in peace, Dr. Hawking.

                  if you're sensitive to "blue" humor, just overlook this one!

                  Is this meant to be kinky? I don't get it. Do any of you ladies have an explanation that can be written here? If so, PLEASE send me a PM....only God knows when I'll get back to this quote!

                  universalmom on March 6th, 2013
                  What in blazes does this mean??

                  gryhnd51 on April 15th, 2013
                  Well, here I am. More than a year later. And I'm so bummed that I still don't understand this quote.

                  slow1 on August 11th, 2013
                  soooo, quotes are sometimes repeated? That might explain how some folks who've been doing this a while - get them so quickly. BTW, this quote is stupid. No wonder they don't take credit for it.

                  abra on November 4th, 2013
                  Maybe we're just looking at it the wrong way. Maybe dental floss is just for flossing your teeth. This is an unattributed quote, so maybe it's just stooopid. But I'd like to be in on that PM otherwise.

                  Barnabas on November 8th, 2013
                  Remember that movie (can't recall the title) in which Rosie O'Donnell is asked, "Tell me your fantasy," and she responds by saying, "Paint my house." Maybe the quote is something along those lines. Sometimes a person's desire isn't always sensual in nature. Or maybe in this case... it's just kinky. Who knows?

                  kb83 on July 17th, 2014
                  Maybe the floss is for the man who is feeling inadequate.

                  I still don't know what the dental floss is for, but I think I know the movie, Barnabas means. I think Rosie says that line to Dan Akroyd, in Exit to Eden.

                  my curiousity is whetted. I have to check out the urban dictionary too. I suspect the quote has something to do with oral sex- and I don't mean talking about sex. Now, I wonder who this can be attributed to. Maybe someone like George Carlin?

                  JenDiaz72 on July 17th, 2015
                  I was thinking the same thing Dovid1946 but I didn't want to be the first one to bring it up... I was thinking of the fact of using dental floss to clean up after oral sex...

                  Oh my, folks. Your comments sent me on an internet search. I finally found the quote attributed to a person but I can't find anything about who the person is. Here's a link: (link) (Apologies and a warning to anyone who cares to look at the link--it's a whole lot of quotes about men that are meant to be funny, but all lumped together in one place feel very sexist)

                  Yeah, the quote has to do with getting hair out of your teeth..

                  fishbum on October 31st, 2017
                  Maybe flossing can be an excuse for not going to bed.

                  seastar228 on January 5th, 2018
                  Hmm. I never put the dental floss idea with sex before.... I won't be able to floss without a smile ever again.

                  gryhnd51 on August 30th, 2018
                  Here I am, after almost 6 years, and your comments all point at KINKY! How can it be that I sometimes get the same quote twice in a row and the ones I don't understand take so long to come back?? About as weird as thinking about sex and dental floss in the same moment!

                      • Andy Rant hits a nerve on New Year's eve

                        In response to this quote:

                        "Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?" Erich Fromm

                        Andy451 went on an extended rant about his opinion of public education and the people who provide it. I won't include Andy's comment because it was typical Andy451.

                        What really caught my attention was LLapp's response, which i assume was directed at Andy's wonderful comments in general. It occurred on the last day of 2016, a time when the end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it was expected to happen in January 2017 and was probably the culmination of many years of LLapp withholding her comments to Andy:

                            Gee, thanks for assuming that I'm normally patient. I seem to recall that I had hit a whole bunch of Andy's overlong rants all in one crypto-session and it was enough already.

                              Andy's rants frequently crack me up. I admire his e-energy.

                              But I also almost always like whatever Llapp writes and also admire her patience and thoughtfulness and wisdom.

                              So I dunno. Maybe I just like everybody.

                              No, that's definitely not it.

                              I do admire many of you though, you wild, crazy, frequent Crypto-posters, you.
