Haha I just saw some mfs on twitter complaining that “yes” campaigners should be focused instead on “sepsis awareness.”

Re: Orange is the new President

Last year federal officials managed to "lose" almost 1500 migrant children. No idea where any of them are.

A hot dog is a sandwich if it is eaten sideways, so that there is bread on the top AND bottom of the meat. Otherwise, it's a wrap.

Re: The Abortion Thread

It is still surprising how shockingly quick and complete the destruction of the RCC's moral authority in Ireland was. They did a lot of the same stuff everywhere, but there wasn't that big of a shift. I take it to be due to their near Monopoly on religion combined with a vast increase in living sta...

I wonder if she'll identify as white or black for her trial?
That's the least of her problems. She better figure out how she's going to identify in prison.
If she goes on trial as a blonde white woman she has a better chance of avoiding prison.

Is it maternity clothes?
It is for a maternity and nursing clothes store, but that still doesn't explain why her torso is three feet long or why her boobs are trying to burrow into her armpits.
Or why her pregnancy bulge is rectangular.

I really like that trendy look where you make flooring out of pennies covered and held in place with some type of clear enamel. (Granted, I also have lots of shiny-red copper decorative items.) There's one shop in the trendy part of Decatur that used shiny new and older-brown pennies to make pattern...

No matter how much you need a kidney donation, the law will not force another person to give you one. C...

That's got to be a messed-up Photoshop. Or did I miss the latest fashion trend wherein "push-up" bras were replaced by "push-apart" versions, plus you're supposed to stack five heating pads under your navel before you get dressed?

The writing for TOS was pretty bad. There'd been 20 years of narrative development in television between the end of TOS and the start of TNG.
Which makes it mysterious why the firs couple of seasons of TNG were so dire, writing-wise.
Because Roddenberry.

So being caught on video beating your wife or girlfriend is fine, but peacefully and silently protesting police brutality is beyond the pale. Nice to know where the NFL's priorities lie.

To be fair, he can still mute people on Twitter -- he's not obligated to see or read what you post, nor should he be IMO -- but he can't block you so that you can't read his.

Re: Star Trek Wankery

There are exceptions in both cases, but: for the most part, when watching TV episodes I prefer TNG to TOS, but when reading novels ( original novels, not novelizations of movies or TV episodes), the TOS offerings are far better than TNG (except for a couple of Peter David works).
