2: 2015-11-23: 3 cannibals & 3 missionaries crossing a river in boat holding only 2. How do you keep the missionaries from sexually abusing the cannibals?
3: 2014-08-16: It's fun to toy with Mormon missionaries, corner them with arguments they just can't win, but the only humane response is, "No thank you."
4: 2014-05-09: Cannibalism would be much more refined if the French did it—not just throw 'em in a pot and boil 'em but fine missionary cuisine.

7: 2013-05-14: In traditional cannibal cuisine, missionaries are stewed in a big metal pot. They always say something funny to each other while simmering.
8: 2012-12-10: The curse of success: It deluges you with temptations that draw you away from your original mission.
9: 2012-11-23: I was on an anthropological mission on a primitive planet, but my cloaking device failed and I was forced to assimilate. Very traumatic.
10: 2012-05-09: There is no love without music, but music alone cannot sustain love. There also has to be a common mission.
11: 2012-05-02: There's some Wile E. Coyote in all of us, constructing ever more elaborate schemes to perpetuate a flawed mission.
12: 2012-04-30: The mission of the remainder of my life is to spew out the wisdom I have learned along the way until death turns off the spigot.
13: 2012-04-12: Wile E. Coyote is just like the rest of us! One Acme device backfires so he tries another and another, never rethinking his deluded mission.
14: 2012-04-04: Couples without a common mission usually make one up, such as raising children or pets or interior decoration.
15: 2012-04-04: For a relationship to be sustainable, people must not just be compatible; they must have a common mission.

17: 2012-03-31: No relationship can be sustained without a common mission.

28: 2012-03-07: If you have no mission, then your mission is to explore the world to find one.
29: 2012-03-07: Many missions are delusional but not all. The more you live, the more missions you see in front of you.
30: 2012-03-07: The hedonist says, "There's no point in any mission. They're all lame!"

40: 2011-11-24: Love cannot last without content. You can't just "have a relationship". You have to have a common mission.
41: 2011-10-20: People, like dogs, are happiest when they have a mission and are surrounded by a structured environment that tells then how to pursue it.

52: 2011-03-19: In my early days of travel, I had a simple mission: collect bumper stickers for my car. It was a silly goal, but it gave me structure.
53: 2011-03-19: Always travel with a mission—some specific goal you want to achieve. Adventures can be found along the way, but the goal keeps you focussed.
54: 2011-02-20: Hardship is much easier to endure when you are engaged in a mission rather than stuck in a loop.
55: 2011-01-29: MISSION ABORTED! Not going to Cairo right now. This WAS my intended bus route on Feb. 10 but there are too many risks.

59: 2010-10-10: No one can give you a meaningful mission in life. You have to find it on your own.
60: 2010-10-03: Perceived loneliness is usually a mask for other things. What makes us lonely is not a lack of people but a defect in our mission.
61: 2010-09-25: You need food, a safe place to sleep, medical care, community with others and a meaningful mission. Every other "need" is negotiable.
62: KilroyCafe: 2010-08-20: If you don't know what to do with your life, then your mission is to explore. You want to collect experiences but not commitments.
63: KilroyCafe: 2010-08-14: You need: food, medical care, a safe place to sleep, community with others and a meaningful mission. Almost every other "need" is imaginary.
64: KilroyCafe: 2009-11-27: No one can give you a meaningful mission in life. You have to find it on your own.
65: KilroyCafe: 2009-06-03: I love being cornered by Mormon missionaries or Jehovah's Witnesses. I start preaching to them, and soon THEY'RE squirming to get away!
66: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-22: Loneliness is an absence of contact with others, but it's compounded by a lack of mission, which others can't really provide.
67: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-22: What seems to be loneliness is often just the pressures of not knowing what to do with yourself. With a mission, loneliness fades.
