I've enjoyed frites with aioli -- wonderful stuff, made with olive oil, egg yolks, lemon juice and/or mustard, and about a thousand garlic cloves!
(Time to move this conversation to "Food!")
I eat Thousand Island dressing on my french fries. And sometimes, aioli.
As for being attracted to someone in the laboratory setting, I don't know. White coats are kind of a turn off, regardless of gender. :-)
On a lighter note, some cuteness from Buzzfeed:

Note again the language of NOM's attempt to channel Martin Luther King in support of bigotry:
we will march for a true and just cause, for the civil right of Americans to enjoy the benefits of natural marriage, the union of one man and one woman, the foundation of society and the cradle of civilization.
Religion Digest published an article today by Eric Miller [WILL “RIGHTS” CLAIMS TIP THE SCALES AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE?] that's a bit disturbing in this regard. It's worth reading in its entirety, but the main point is that conservatives have come to the realization that framing discourse in the language of "rights" amounts to a cloak of invisibility for extreme candidates and positions, and ultimately an invitation to lie.
For years, same-sex marriage supporters have successfully framed the debate in terms of the “right to marry” and “marriage equality.” Rights and equality are the trump cards of political liberalism, and these are arguably the two most potent frames in American political discourse. Supporters of traditional marriage have lacked a counter-argument that could stand up to these effective declarations. Arguments regarding tradition, nature, and children seemed to lose to those of rights, especially for the young who are more susceptible to rights frames. Recently, however, activists have been reframing their support for traditional marriage using the language of rights, arguing that children have the “right to have both a father and a mother.” Some recent research suggests that this might be effective.
No wonder the big guy's so ugly!
Ya gotta love the Alabama GOP lionizing St. Clarence Thomas for what he does best - being a dick.
Bertold, marriage equality and nondiscrimination laws, etc., do threaten one thing: some people's perception that their religious traditions and dogma are obviously right because even the civil government is going along with them.
Anyway, I just read that the Alabama Republican Party chairman unwittingly wrote one true statement in his diatribe against same-sex marriage, after a federal judge struck down Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional:
"We have made God in our image."
Daniel, you could dress as the guy in the parable about the man who was to marry 10 virgins on the same night. IF you can find 10 genuine virgins to go along with the joke....
So true, Carl. I've yet to hear a coherent answer to how same sex marriage "threatens" any other marriage. The California judge said it best - "There's no such thing as gay marriage, there's just marriage, and everyone is entitled to it."
