Is There Any­thing More In­spir­ing Than That?!

Guy look­ing out win­dow on train: Oh! Those are the bike trails I want­ed to tell you about. See how they are sep­a­rate from the road there, then they join back up. They go all the way down­town.
(short lull in con­ver­sa­tion)
Woman: So, I’m re­al­ly proud of my mom for be­ing sober…
Guy, cut­ting her off: Look! There’s the bike trail again, go­ing un­der that bridge!

Pro­fes­sor, in mid­dle of lec­ture about DNA: If I’m sick, I’m not go­ing to give any mon­ey to the god­damn med­ical… Well, nev­er mind. I’d rather go to Thai­land and blow it all in one good go… Un­like women with the breast can­cer gene, you think a 20-year-old man is go­ing to go to a doc­tor and re­move his prostate? No, he’ll say “I’ll give it a run, ar­rrgh!“
and par­ents can se­quence a fe­tus’ genes! They say “you know, I don’t like that com­bi­na­tion, let’s abort lit­tle Bob­by!”
