i humbly submit:

It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary...but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything any more if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch. -Steve Martin

Definitely Steve Martin.

Close, but Carlin.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

I know the reason for your preference.

George Carlin. Steve Martin is just a little too bland for me. Plus he keeps that sheepish grin on his face all the time, he looks like my dog when she's pissed in the floor behind my back.
