"I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays."
|S:||How many exemptions do you have? Zero or one?|
|S:||Oh, are you single?|
|R:||[Looking over A's shoulder.] That's how much you have in your bank account?! You need to stop spending money on stupid shit.|
|A:||You bought a $100 cape so don't tell me about stupid purchases.|
|R:||Russia is just like Scary Canada.|

"I know this isn’t going to be a popular opinion, but I’m gay, and I don’t think there’s nearly as much discrimination as people claim. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve experienced discrimination. But it hasn’t been a huge factor in my life. I feel like a lot of people bring discrimination on themselves by getting in people’s faces too much. They like to say: ‘Accept me or else!’ They go around demanding respect as a member of a group, instead of earning respect as an individual. And that sort of behavior invites discrimination. I’ve never demanded respect because I was gay, and I haven’t experienced much discrimination when people find out that I am."
"My wife left me and went to Georgia."
"Why’d she leave you?"
"We’d just grown apart. I’d recommend getting married as late as you can. We got married because we had a baby. Then we both changed a lot, because both of us still had a lot of growing left to do. You should give yourself plenty of time to grow before getting married."
It’s always nice when your opinions are validated by the mistakes of other people.
