I had no idea that Dumas could be so, well, juvenile:

Milady was no longer for him that woman of fatal intentions who had for a moment terrified him; she was an ardent, passionate mistress, abandoning herself to love which she also seemed to feel. Two hours thus glided away. When the transports of the two lovers were calmer, Milady, who had not the same motives for forgetfulness that d'Artagnan had, was the first to return to reality, and asked the young man if the means which were on the morrow to bring on the encounter between him and de Wardes were already arranged in his mind.

But d'Artagnan, whose ideas had taken quite another course, forgot himself like a fool, and answered gallantly that it was too late to think about duels and sword thrusts.

Oh yeah, I bet it was.

Even with everything that they warned us would happen if gay marriage were allowed to come to pass, no one pointed out the inevitable giant squid/castle Hogwarts slashfic.

LJ's [livejournal.com profile] news page posts announcements periodically, including a sample of recent answers to the LJ Writer's Block "Question of the Day".  Today's announcement included some answers to the question "Which character from any film, television show, or book would you most like to take on a date and why?"

You just know that's going to be good.

Anna Marie Darkholme AKA Rogue Because I love her, because she deserves it more than anyone else I know, and you don't get to know the rest.

I have to admit that sex with Rogue could be pretty amazing.  That whole power absorption thing is potentially like the ultimate erotic asphyxiation game.

Polgara the Sorceress from the David Eddings books. She is well aged, infinitely wise, imminently powerful, and gorgeous.

Well aged?

This one is SOOOOO easy. I would date Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a second. My obsession with Donatello is probably not healthy but I dun care.

The proviso is my favorite part of this.  Probably not healthy!  But I don't care!  We're in LOVE, dammit!  And if you can't see that all the other problems in this crazy world don't amount to a hill of beans...

I pity you and your "conventional relationships."

I would most like to take Michael Madsen from Reservoir Dogs on a date. Particularly his character, Mr. Blonde. I enjoy his undying cynicism and craziness. In essence, he's sexy.

Oh god.  I can't get the image out of my head now of two teenagers in bed, humping away in adolescent frenzy, whispering, "Are you gonna bark all day, little doggie?  Or are you gonna bite?"

Edward Scissorhands, because I probably love him more most than other fictional character and possibly more than a good amount of real people.

You know, I have a feeling he could say the same thing about you.

Oh, it's NO CONTEST there! I'd choose Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs. He's real smart, perceptive and has a gorgeous pair of eyes. Oh, and he seems to have some interesting recipes.

Shaggy, from Scooby Doo. I've always had a crush on him. How fun would it be to smoke some weed and then investigate haunted houses? BEST DATE EVAR!

OK, you know what?  Now my faith in humanity has been restored a little bit.

10:28 <[livejournal.com profile] mangosteen> I wish there was a compact way of saying "I've
        already searched the web.  I will have an undefined reaction if you
        decide to answer my question with an uninformed opinion derived
        from looking at the first three results on Google."

One of the newer geek memes seems to be coming up with new variants on Chuck Norris Facts:
Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
The chief export of Chuck Norris is Pain.
Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves.

etc.  For example, see Bruce Schneier Facts:
There are no finite state machines. There are only a series of states that Bruce Schneier allows to exist.
Bruce Schneier knows the state of Schroedinger's cat.
All infinite sets are countable -- by Bruce Schneier.
In a fight between Ron Rivest and Adi Shamir, the winner would be Bruce Schneier.

The latest addition I have found are Richard Stallman Facts, most of which are pretty stupid but some of which entertained me:
Whenever Richard Stallman points at a Windows computer, it segfaults.
Richard Stallman wrote a program that divides by zero.
Richard Stallman's compiler is afraid to report errors.
Richard Stallman doesn't write programs, they write themselves out of reverence.
Richard Stallman can make infinite loops end.
Richard Stallman's first words were actually syscalls.
Richard Stallman gets 9 bits to the byte.
Richard Stallman can tell you if your program will halt.
All your base are belong to Richard Stallman.

But maybe the best one of all, for pure subtlety:
Richard Stallman wrote Emacs.
