“Religion is still the very best way to get someone to accept something unabashedly ridiculous.”
Gene Doucette, Hellenic Immortal

“I was suicidal for two solid centuries once. That was during the early part of what they now call the Dark Ages, in medieval Europe. Suicidal tendencies were de rigueur at the time, and I’m nothing if not trendy.”
