My favorite favorite favorite quote:

Current rules prohibit the FBI from hiring anyone who used marijuana within the past three years or more than 15 times ever. They also ban anyone who used other illegal drugs, such as cocaine or heroin, within the past 10 years or more than five times.

“That 16th time is a killer,” McCaffrey said.

  1. The 16th Time
    I do wonder, sometimes, whether people (like the guy saying “That 16th time is a killer”) are being deliberately stupid, in some sort of Winston-Smithish attempt to run the entire government/country/society/planet into the ground, as some sort of insane dare or reductio ad absurdum.
