Boys in their twenties are a waste of time. They have nothing to offer conversationally; they're immature. I feel like I have a better shot with someone in his thirties.
I always felt that if someone shot me, it would be great for the environmental movement, because they would make me a martyr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
