L&S: Great Libertarian Pick-Up Lines

Tom has told the story of meeting his wife at an IHS seminar in 1988. He introduced himself and said "I'm trying out anarcho-capitalism for a year." He reports "for some reason, she found this to be a turn-on." I don't recommend this strategy. Ex ante, Tom might have been better off betting on being hit by lightning than having that line work.

High risk, high return, Steve.

And almost no down-side risk!

Oh, yeah, Glen, she hit that one right. I was lucky enough to both have a good pickup line *and* get struck by a dgm-bolt.
