My mom's more of an amorphous irregular pentagonoid structure.

Well, we could put two and two together and write a book: "The Shit that Hans and Max Did: You Won't Believe This Shit."

Yo momma's so fat, her topological teapot has more than four extra handles.

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

Not true. A coffeemug would not have (or would only have) a nostril or the other nostril, to start with. Two-handled teapot, then. Before you add the tearducts (two more), and a woman technically has a trans-fallopian space that I don't think exists between tesyes. So teapot with four more handles than usual. Not sure about eustachian tubes. Probably not. Lungs don't change anything (unlike the vills of fish), nor normally belly-button, but an active piercing of the belly-button (or indeed other places, common or less so) would add to the count to arbitrary degree.

They're developing pills to cure loneliness.  Such an american way to solve the problem, really.

Technically "they" (by which we both mean Cacioppo's lab, but why start caring about who's doing research now?) are testing orally administered pregnenolone's effectiveness in reducing the exacerbating effect of loneliness on cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disease, but hey, if you want to boil everything down to "stupid Americans keep trying to solve problems with science", we have a pill for that too.

Still better than Japan's "friends and family rentals."

I'm kind of curious what the preferable way to solve the problem would be, as opposed to the American way.

I'd assume he wants some kind of nationally accessible database of lonely people, but dating sites already exist.

We throw pills at a lot of things, really.  Opioid epidemic and all that.  You can call it science, but American healthcare is a private operation that seeks profit.  Pharmaceuticals are doubly that.  Seriously time how long it takes between turning on the tele and some commercial prattling on some pills side effect list.  If it isn't that its selling you insurance so you can ask your doctor if Prilozac OTC is right for you.  Or you can look at how epipens and insulin can go up in multiples of price, because there's profit to be made when your consumer base is literally held captive with their lives.

Frankly, its treating symptoms, not disease.  There's a societal problem when massive proportions of the population suffer from depression, anxiety, and loneliness.  Tackling social issues typically isn't profitable in terms of short term quarters, so pill prescriptions it is.
