Ain't no such thing as an original sin

I am looking forward to the results of the 'philosophical chat up lines' competition.

But wait... here are some suggestions already. Oh dear.

Hobbes:

"Life is nasty, brutish, and short. But down where it counts, I'm only nasty and brutish."

Nietzsche:

"A living thing seeks above all to discharge its strength"...know what I mean??

Hmmm... Remarkable on this evidence that the human race has succeeded in reproducing itself.



John Nash:

"Speaking generally, one might say that a relationship is a game in which a "cooperative" outcome obtainable only when every player violates rational self-interest is unanimously preferred to the "selfish" outcome obtained when every player adheres to rational self-interest. We can characterize the selfish outcome either as the result of each player pursuing its dominant (strongly dominant) strategy, or as the unique weak (strong) nash equilibrium. In a two move game the two characterizations come to the same thing -- a dominant move pair is a unique equilibrium and a unique equilibrium is a dominant move pair. As the payoff matrix below shows, however, the two notions diverge in a game with more than two moves. So how about it baby?"

Actually I nicked that from the Stanford on-line encyclopedia of philosophy.
