Best one so far, filthy.

How about pagers? There is really no need for them anymore since we can all just have cell phones. No?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Yep, and while on the subject of cell phones, I nominate for consideration those annoying ring-tones everyone has now. It's bad enough everyone has a cell phone, but do we all have to hear annoying "music" every time it rings?

I would like to say "no shit." But that wouldn't be the case with low-flow toilets. Now you have to flush them twice, probably using more water than the old water waster...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?
