I don’t know how you guys are spending your day, but I just started a debate with the following:
(In response to someone antisexual being against free birth control and digusted by seeing flavoured condoms for sale in Wal-Mart.)
“I think that solving world hunger and finding a cure for cancer is somewhat out of the strawberry condom manufacturer’s ball park. HIV/AIDs and general STD protection with a funky, fresh strawberry flavour? They might be on to something there though.”
Never thought I’d say all those words in that order.
A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume.

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard. 'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Devil deals the cards. And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold, But if you lose the devil gets your soul.

Devil’s Flower Mantis - one of the largest types of praying mantis, they can measure up to 13 centimeters in length and have a range of coloring that allows them to mimic the Devil’s Flower, a type of orchid.

“But perhaps, you know, we should believe in Adam and Eve. Geneticists have established that every woman in the world shares a single female ancestor who lived a hundred and fifty thousand years ago. Scientists actually call her “Eve”, and every man shares a single male ancestor called “Adam”. It’s also been established, however, that Adam was born eighty thousand years after Eve. So the world before him was one of heavy to industrial-strength lesbianism, one assumes.”
