g = grand. I have no idea why $1000 is one grand though.

Your name must be Daisy, 'cause I have the urge to plant you right here.

This is because "G"rover Cleveland is on the $1000 bill?

It doesn't mean 20 gigadollars :)


G is for "grand" which means "1000".

Bah. Having 20 Grovers sounds so much cooler than 20 grand 8)

If your natural log grows exponentially for values as low as 4, you should see a psychiatrist. My natural log grows exponentially for values X > 16 and forms a parabolic arc, where dy/dx = 0 for X = 21, at which point Y = 10".

Better:

A: "If I asked you to sleep with me, would the answer be the same as the answer to this question?"

B: "No."

A: "So will you sleep with me?"

B: *kicks him in the crotch"

It's not the same answer...

just maybe... the line would be delivered so awesomely that the girl falls into a stupor to do your bidding amazed at your intellect; as you swoop her up onto your stallion and gallop away across the tundra to etch out a new life of adventure, mystery and surprise; to meet new culture and traverse new boundaries, and see sights that neither would have thought possible

Oddly enough, whenever I chat up a girl, exchanging names is the last thing that happens--just after we make plans to see each other again but just before we part. "Oh, by the way..."

The closest thing to a pickup line I've ever used: She was studying for the LSAT at a table in the on-campus cafe. I waited until she put down the book and let out one of those heavy sighs indicating she'd been at it for hours, then I walked over and sat down opposite her. "You look like you could use a study break."

Actually, never mind. That is a pickup line.

It did work, though.

Science pick-up lines are bad. Mangled science pick-up lines are just horrible.

Mangled literature lines are worse.

In my freshman year of college, a girl post-it noted my door and left bad pick up lines on a few of them. They inspired my to come up with this one:

Hey, baby. What's your Chinese zodiac? Mine's the cock.

...funny enough, My Chinese zodiac really IS the cock.

reminds me of a when my cohabitating then-girlfriend said to me "nice pants!"

I was going to say "thanks! i bet they'd look great crumpled on your bedroom floor" but then i remembered... she's seen them crumpled on the bedroom floor, along with some horts and assorted other laundry and frankly, she knows that it doesn't look that great.

The cowardly lion is probably the worst name one could possibly have for that, but I can't think of a good line to accompany it.

This comic might be a spinoff of the date project. http://xkcd.com/date

he Current Top Date Ideas:
1. Pretend you've never met, then loudly try out lame pickup lines in a swanky bar. Act like they worked.

As I watched my suggestion rising up through the top twenty, I realised I have no way to prove it's mine. If there's a next time for a simliar competition, maybe you could have a signature option or something. I don't know how possible that is or if it would mess up everything else, but it'd make it easier for the winner to brag.

This thread inspired me to think of the following dialog:
  • If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put you and me together.
  • It's "you and I" ( 'U' and 'I' )
  • No, that's hypercorrection.
  • I know grammatically it's "me", but the line doesn't work if you say it because "me" isn't a letter.
  • What's that got to do with.... ohhh, alphabet - I was wondering about that... so you say it doesn't work with saying it that way, does that imply that it does work the other way? because, if I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.

Have fun with your pickup lines, but always remember this.

Girls are like squares. If they're 13 or smaller, do them in your head.
