I’ve had more human contact this August than last month, but I still had trouble finding quotes. I guess I wasn’t in a quote-finding mode. I think there may have been some candidates, but they’ve long since disappeared from the remembering part of my mind.
There isn’t even a real quote for you today! It’s just a snippet of instant messaging conversation:
schizo killer: I kind of like mild fruit scents, but then I again, I also liked the smell of that stuff they used to preserve dead cats.
Chops LM: I like the smell of skunks and stink bombs.
Chops LM: Also chocolate.
There isn’t even a real context:
Chops LM: You know what’s weird? Today I read in Psychology Today that the factor that affected whether women were attracted to men most, second to a nice personality, was scent. And that people’s scents are determinded by their immune system genes, and people are atttracted to people that smell different from them, so their kids will have a wider range of immunities. People who get pregnant by someone who smells similar to them have a higher likelihood of having a miscarriage.
Chops LM: and When people are on the pill, their body thinks it’s pregnant, so they’re attracted to people with similar smells to them, and scientists think that’s so they’ll stay with their family, because that’s the safe thing to do when you’re pregnant. So women who are on the pill, and then marry a guy and then get off the pill start not liking their smell. And one of the most common reasons that therapists hear for women wanting to end relationships is because they “can’t stand his smell.” Isn’t that weird?
schizo killer: woah
schizo killer: yes
Chops LM: I feel the need to tell everyone that. It’s hecka weird. And it is supposed to work the same way for guys, minus the pregnancy part, but just to a smaller degree.
That was just the text that came before that snippet.
I guess that’s it for today, unless something randomly comes up, or something randomly jogs my memory.

Random flash of inspiration! Actually, this was prompted by the comments.

My cousin uttered this quote when commenting on her brother’s ability to instantly improvise in-jokes along with my sister.
