Re: Pant Thread (because we need more panting)

spaz out Don't use those words, especially not like that, please. I live in the US and I was astonished when the word "spastic" was filtered in a UK-based game I was playing. I can't recall what the connotations are at the moment due to a critically low blood caffeine level, but in the US...

Re: Today I Learned

If I'm going to a Coffee Bean I'm going to get coffee. Tea is far easier and cheaper to make at home, but a Coffee Bean latte is goooood. I've almost given up on drinking tea outside home, both hot and iced. I know hot is only going to get me a random bag of dust (unless they bought a Bigelow box or...

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

I have used disposable ones. I mistakenly thought I had bought a reusable one from my local drug store. They're ok, but I had the same problem with them as I do with the reusable one-it's noisy and I could get it out without getting blood on my hands. They were more comfortable than my reusable one...

Re: Nudity and Lighting Yourself on Fire

Definitely naked. Clothes have a nasty habit of remaining a separate entity from one's body, and if my only motivation is to become one with the flame, it doesn't make sense to have clothes in the way.

Re: Screechings of the Great Unwashed (Meander to the Morgue

Some gas stations pass debit card fees onto their customers and then post the cash-only price on their signs. Some stations, most notably ARCO, do not allow credit or debit. That's odd.
