Cthulhu, dinosaurs, Kim Sharma and uninterested men

Some great lines that please me in different ways:
You know what killed off the dinosaurs, Whateley? We did. In one barbecue.
From "I Cthulhu," a marvellous Lovecraftian story by Neil Gaiman.

Speaking of horror, let's talk about Indian cricket. Rahul Bhatia writes:
If it were a woman, we'd be advising Indian cricket to pack its bags and leave its belligerent lover before the mental strain of satisfying a savage started to show.
Heh. Not if it were a man? Anyway, speaking of satisfying lovers, here's Kim Sharma's policy on kissing:
Movies are ideally not the place for a first kiss.
Indeed, Ariel Levy would have you know that some men aren't even interested in getting physical:
[A]ll along, men were in it more for the conquest than for the bumping and grinding that used to follow it. Now that sex is offered freely, they wonder, can it really be so great after all?
"Offered freely?" Are all my male readers as befuddled as me?

Anyway, that'll be all for the moment, I need to go out to a social gig, where I will no doubt be mobbed and molested. I have eight links I'd like to blog about asap, so hopefully when I'm back this evening, I shall explode upon my hapless laptop.
