    Let's see...most of the things used amongst my friends are inspired by a long history of combining science with danger.

    "Gotta catch 'em all." I actually used to watch the Pokemon cartoons. And I was an adult. Ah yes...I welcome your disgust...I wallow in it... Er... Anyway, but I was really baffled by the people I knew who bought the toys or games. The whole thing was so obviously a marketing ploy. Continuously evolve the characters so each iteration was a new thingummy to buy. Brilliant. Who ever came up with the idea had better taking his baths in cash or I'll be sorely disappointed with the possibilities of conspicuous consumption.

    Anyway, that's my standard response to dead clever marketing that incites people to buy!buy!buy! absolute crap.

    "It's the nature of the beast."

    Seems like whenever I, or someone I'm talking is discussing something unpleasant, it's chalked up to "the nature of the beast."

    'Not my first barbecue' to be said knowingly and with no little smugness.

    I say this a lot.

    "Get out of my teeth."

    My roommate and I have started using this in lieu of "jinx!" whenever we speak in stereo or finish each others sentences. That we have developed a phrase for it should tell you something about how often it happens.

    From my old friend John Lindqvist (author of "Let the Right One in"), a maxim that has comforted me at many difficult times of life: "It will work out - maybe not for the best, but it will work out".
