Spelling?

I never heard or read the word until today but my google-fu tells me that hot and brain-dead seems to be the winning combo.

Himbo = hot + dumb + good alignment (in the D&D sense, not his car) or at least good-natured

ohh ok.

bimbos are generally not held to be "good" per se, though generally harmless and materialistic.

eta: wife was offended i called darcy a himbo. apparently "boring dipshit" has also been rejected.

This was my thinking. I think it was Bingo Little who immediately came to mind.

I rarely tweet, but for fun I decided to do a thread about the human microbiome, language, and literal erasure of humanity. Because that's what Twitter is for.

I know I'm going to regret asking this, but is there some reason to think Marion is 22 during the events of the movie?



I find it bizarre that anyone wouldn't just assume "child" was hyperbole, the way all right-thinking people now talk about 8-year-olds as "babies" when they're murder victims.

No, there isn't, as far as I know. This is looking for things to complain about. They probably took it from some stupid fanfic. Karen Allen was 29-30 when the movie came out.

While I'm sure there is someone on Insta calling it that, back in those days they probably would have said you "bought" or just "got" a dog.
