  3. Do butterflies have livers?

    Now I have a question for you – do you like liver?

    I don’t think I’ve ever had it.

  4. That quote is from Zhuangzi, a chinese philosopher of the Tao.

    Prometheus’ response is much like the Buddha’s in a way. Here’s why:

    “Questioned one day about the problem of the infinity of the world, the Buddha said, “Whether the world is finite or infinite, limited or unlimited, the problem of your liberation remains the same.” Another time he said, “Suppose a man is struck by a poisoned arrow and the doctor wishes to take out the arrow immediately. Suppose the man does not want the arrow removed until he knows who shot it, his age, his parents, and why he shot it. What would happen? If he were to wait until all these questions have been answered, the man might die first.” Life is so short. It must not be spent in endless metaphysical speculation that does not bring us any closer to the truth.”

  7. The only thing I’ve eaten with liver in it that I enjoyed was a liver knish. Other than that, forget it.

    Frogman: Stay off the wikipedia!!

    Ross: How many people have told you you’re awfully punny?
