    My friend and I were talking about something and he mentioned my girlfriends two cats. I was like, "what are you talking about?" And he said, "her two cats; I hate them! They always make me sneeze." And he said it in a tone like I was stupid or something.

    I started laughing hysterically and said, "uhhmmm.. Her dogs?" (She doesn't have two cats; she has two dogs)
    Then he started laughing.
    I guess he felt a little stupid.


    And another one:

    A few days ago I was getting out of my car late at night and couldn't find my phone. I figured it fell under the seat so I reached in my pocket and pulled out my phone and opened it so that I had some light to look for it.
    It took about 5 seconds for me to realize it was in my hand.

    Tuesday. Me, walking around the lab with the specific parts I need in my hand, asking "Did anyone see where I put the pistons for the new pumps?"

    Two nights ago: I was out walking Inge and this really cute girl next door finally has a nice coversation with me. I've had my eye on her ever since she moved in. It was awesome, she was smiling and joking with me and didn't grab the pepper spray. After about a 10 minute conversation I walk into my place only to realize my fly was down the whole freaking time. I'm an idiot folks.

    My favourite quote has to be, "They could not hit an elephant at this distance"

    As I was typing that correction, I realized that there are two ways of interpreting it.

    FYI, Gore is known for his dry sense of humor.
    I see unexamined people. All the time. I don't think they know they're unexamined.

    I was at a bus stop once, a car pulled up, so I tried to get in.

    The car was there for the other person at the bus stop and I didn't know the people in the car. I have no idea what I was thinking and boy, did I feel like an idiot!
