Susie Lillis from the laundromat

"Hey, Jim, it's me, Susie Lillis from the laundromat. You said you were gonna call and it's been two weeks. What's wrong, you lose my number?"
A unix fortune... But can anyone tell me the reference? Where is the quote from? Is it a song or a move or is it just random?

The Right To Die

A dying Jehovah’s Witness has been granted the right to refuse life-saving medical treatment on the grounds of his religious beliefs.

[An Australian Judge] today found Mr A’s directives should be followed “even if the likely consequence of giving effect to Mr A’s wishes … is that he will die”.

AdelaideNow via ReligionNewsBlog

Conservative Christianity wants the right to choose to die from preventable natural causes. Sometimes they want this for their own children. But they get all "righteous" when people with incurable, life-crippling conditions look for medical intervention to help them choose to die.

The difference is, they say, that death becomes God's choice, not mans. And yet they say God gives us free will. But then why expect rationality from a position that isn't rational to begin with?

Giraffe Sex

"...the female giraffe urinates and the male drinks a small portion of her urine... The male can tell whether she is in season based on the taste and smell of her urine...

Once it has been determined by the male that the female giraffe is indeed in season and fertile, he begins a courtship. There is nothing special or fancy about the way he courts her. In fact, he just follows her around for several hours or several days. Every once in a while he gets up on her hind quarters to see if she will accept his penis. The female typically plays hard to get for a while, walking away when he jumps up on her. In fact, she plays hard to get mainly to see if a larger, more dominant male will come around to mate her instead."
