dglenn quoting xiphias in today's QotD:
"When the aliens come, it will be fen who communicate with them.
"And you know why? It's not just because, well, science fiction fans have THOUGHT about aliens more than most people.
"No, it's because, at a science fiction convention, you can expect that a shomer n'geiah Orthodox Jew will talk to a leather-clad dominatrix and someone dressed in Regency garb. As friends. About hobbit pornography."
