Quote of the Day

"I have experienced a few situations where a little cold, calculated retaliation seemed appropriate. For instance, I once purposefully puked on some homophobic boys on a boat. This probably wasn't the healthiest approach, but I considered it a political tactic more than a revenge per se, and it was certainly effective! Even in that situation, I'd still say the question—to puke, or not to puke?—was up for debate, but it did give me an instant feeling of relief, and I can't say I've ever regretted it."—Beth Ditto, on revenge.
