Thus the word 'seriously'. Many of my friends and associates have
severely inappropriate internal fantasies. In fact, so do I. But it's
the person who doesn't realise that this is a... well, not BAD, but an
INAPPROPRIATE fantasy to pursue that should be handled in some decisive
and extreme fashion.

I also don't have any problem with the games consenting adults want to
play behind closed doors. It's when you start telling people about it or
doing it in public that I start to go, no, wait, uh-uh.

 You see me now, a veteran of a thousand psychic wars. I've been 
 living on the edge so long, where the winds of limbo roar. And 
 I'm young enough to get involved, too old to see, all the scars 
 are on the inside; I'm not sure that there's anything left of me
