(08:37:05) Laura C: mechanical.

(08:37:20) Laura C: I wanted to see what happened if you lit the lead on fire.

(08:37:29) Laura C: except i caught the plastic on fire

(08:37:39) Laura C: and the top part kinda melted off.

(08:39:33) [me]: I thought you said it didn't work?

(08:39:51) Laura C: Well, the tip of the piece of lead pokes through the plastic

(08:39:57) Laura C: So i can technically still write with it

(08:40:28) Laura C: But it's not like i can reverse the damage i did. When that peice of lead is through, it'll be completley broken.

(08:47:54) Laura C: this is the coolest pencil EVER

Peter: "How many do I need?"

me, Adam: [laughter] "Uhm, Peter...."

Peter: [humbled voice] "I'm serious."

(16:50:56) Оберон: now that I think about it, it's odd I passed max300 on a 36 hour caloric intake of probably about 500 C

Cem: "I wanna throw this awesome party in my Ziv, with like a mad DJ and strobe lights and everything and we'd have to hand pick who came and have a guest list, and you could hire this huge black guy to be a bouncer for like a hundred dollars for the night and he'd make money off people bribing him to get into the party."

Me: "I'd almost go to that party, just for the DJ and the strobe lights."

Cem: "You'd have to get past the bouncer though."

"Within the deep enigmatic craters of the human mindset, exists a belief of an ideal world; inconceivable in reality, an almost intangible paradise is found to be a constantly recurring notion. The previous sentence meant nothing; it is only a structural perception of the implausible."

Rameez: "You know, I've got five missing socks. The laundry must've eaten them"

Jonathan: "The laundry doesn't just eat socks. It just seems like it does."

Rameez: "It must be the dryer."

Jonathan: "Yeah, you know, there's a vent that goes outside. It must just like suck the socks in. Like, you know, it'll be spinning [waves hands and makes whirring sound] and then it goes like 'dounk' and sucks it into the vent, and then blows it out the other end outside."

Rameez: "If we were ever to find that, that would be like the motherload of socks."

Jonathan: "I should make a comic stip about this. Like in the first scene clothes spinning in the dryer, and in the second, like the same scene, but then 'dounk' and the sock gets sucked into the vent, and then in the the third scene, like a sock shooting out into someone's lawn, or onto a pile of socks or something. If I had any artistic talent at all, I'd so draw that up right now."
