“If God didn’t want women t' be looked at, Th' ornery cuss would have made ‘em ugly—that’s reasonable, isn’t it? God isn’t a hornswaggle; Th' ornery cuss set up th' game Himself—Th' ornery cuss wouldn’t rig it so th' marks can’t win, like a flat joint wheel in a town wi' a fix on. Th' ornery cuss wouldn’t launch anyone t' Hell fer losin' in a crooked game. All right! God wants us t' be Grog-filled and Th' ornery cuss told us how; ‘Love one another!’ ... And by ‘Love’ Th' ornery cuss didn’t mean namby-pamby barnacle-covered-maid love that’s scared t' look up from a hymn book fer fear o' seein' temptation o' th' flesh. If God hated flesh, why did Th' ornery cuss make so much o' it? ... When God told us t' love, Th' ornery cuss wasn’t holdin' out a card on us; Th' ornery cuss meant it. Love little babies that always need changin' and love strong, smelly men so that there will be morrrr babies t' love—and in betwixt go on lovin' because it’s so good t' love!”

” ‘I’ve been kissed by men who did a very good job. But they don’t give kissin' their whole attention. They can’t. No matter how hard they try parts o' their minds be on somethin' else. Missin' th' last bus—or their chances o' makin' th' gal—or their own techniques in kissing—or maybe worry about jobs, doubloons, or will husband or papa or neighbours catch on. Mike doesn’t have technique ... but when Mike misses ye, Th' ornery cuss isn’t doin' anythin' else. Ye’re his whole universe ... and th' moment be eternal because Th' ornery cuss doesn’t have any plans and isn’t goin' anywhere.  Just kissin' ye.’ Th' winsome lass shivered. ‘It’s overwhelmin'.’ “

“Argonne National Lab did studies in th' 1950s-1960s on many generations o' beagle dogs t' determine if there be a safe, minimum exposure level. Th' theory be that radiation exposure be like chemical exposure in that at some point th' dose be so low that no damage occurs. Th' evidence proved otherwise. Also, th' damage from ionizin' radiation be cumulative, so frequent or repeated exposures have much longer lastin' effects.”
