First, we assume that all girls take time and money.
Girls = Time x Money
Furthermore, we take the statement, "Time is money", and we get:

Evil = the square root of money
Girls = (Evil)^1/2 (Evil)^1/2
which reduces to...
Girls = Evil

Obligatory Verse:

How I love to watch the morn,
With golden sun that shines,
Up above to nicely warm
These frosty toes of mine.
The wind doth taste of bittersweet,
Like jasper wine and sugar,
I bet it's blown through other's feet,
Like those of... Caspar Weinberger.
Obligatory Song Lyrics:

Religion and sex are powerplays, manipulate the people for the
money they pay, selling skin, selling god, the numbers look the
same on their credit cards. Politicians say no to drugs, while
we can pay for wars in South America. Fighting Fire with empty
words. While the banks get fat and the poor stay poor and the
rich get rich and the cops get paid. To look away. As the one
percent rules America.
Obligatory Quotes:
"Your petitioners are Atheists and they define their ideas as
follows. An Atheist loves his fellow man instead of a god. An
Atheist knows that heaven is something for which we should work
now--here on earth--for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist
knows that he can get no help through prayer but that he must find
within himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to
grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An Atheist knows
that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow
man can he find the understanding that will help to a life of
"An Atheist seeks to know himself then and his fellow rather than
to know a god. An Atheist understands that a hospital must be built
instead of a church. An Atheist knows that a deed must be done
instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in
life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered,
poverty vanquished, war eliminated. He wants man to understand,
love and accept all of mankind. He wants an ethical way of life.
He knows that we cannot rely on a god, channel action into prayer,
or hope for an end to our troubles in a hereafter. He knows that
we are not only our brother's keepers--but keepers of our own
lives foremost, that we are responsible persons and that the job
is here and the time is now."

"I cannot convince myself that there is anyone so wise, so
universally comprehensive in his judgment, that he can be trusted
with the power to tell others: 'You shall not express yourself thus,
you shall not describe your own experiences; or depict the fantasies
which your mind has created; or laugh at what others set up as
respectable; or question old beliefs; or contradict the dogmas of
the church, of our society, our economic systems, and our political
"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already
earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake,
since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace
to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at
command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance,
how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is;
I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action!
It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing
but an act of murder."
