Life can suddenly be made to work for you if you employ this theory in everything you do

The new mind-busting games such as “Hexed” and “Instant Insanity” are a progression of the old puzzles, and depending on how you view the uselessness of spending hours to master an intricate puzzle, you’ll love or despise these games when stoned. Without question, you’ll get involved, all hung up, and either not be able to put your puzzle down for hours, or get hopelessly frustrated in a minute and throw the whole thing out a window. Whichever way it goes, it pays to have a puzzle or two around that you have mastered, so when you go someone’s house someday who has the same puzzle, you can pretend to be a novice and dazzle the crowd with the dexterity with which you put the thing together. Life can suddenly be made to work for you if you employ this theory in everything you do.

Shhh, Virginia is going to speak

VIRGINIA:  Are you hungry?
ANDY:  No.  (Long reflective pause.)  Wait a minute.  Did you mean am I hungry for food, or am I hungry in the abstract, like hungry for knowledge or adventure?
VIRGINIA:  What were we talking about?
ANDY:  You asked if I was hungry.
VIRGINIA:  Did I?
ANDY:  Yes.
VIRGINIA:  Well, are you?
ANDY:  Am I what?
