so much for the categorical imperative

So act that the maxim of your will could always hold at the same time as a principle in a giving of universal law.
Immanuel Kant, The Critique of Practical Reaon

She: [entering the door] you have to go to this yoga class with me next week.

LoA: i can't; lectures start back next week.

She: but there was this guy hitting on me during yoga class. i shouldn't have to be harassed during yoga.

LoA: introduce MB as your partner. that should shut him down.

She: [ponders] i'm sure not she could handle that.

LoA: was he cute?

She: uh, no.

LoA: that's too bad; if he is going to harass you he ought to at least have the common decency to be attractive.

She: it isn't harassment if they are cute. [evil grin]

LoA: [ponders on where to begin....decides to go back to reading kant...]
