From the sack or not?

I might have some wine... not from a sack.

Because I'm endlessly classy, from a sack. I've got a week off work to coincide with the election and other activities so I bought bulk, a box of white wine and $5 champagne. Like I said, I'm classy.

Standard for sure. Being super bright and sunny forever when it's already 100 degrees in the shade all summer in the worst.

The sun being up and the birds chirping at 4 am is the worst, actually.

People saying we ought to do away with DST are silly. We ought to do away with "normal" time.

My partner is pretty damn good at sleeping - mostly because she is on a cocktail of medication. She can do 12 hours and then have an hour and a half nap on some days. Bushie doesn't have that excuse. He is just psychologically 15 years old.

Speculation of the sexual orientation of a specific person based on rumours and particular traits is shameful, ignorant, and lazy (I am not invited to parties)

Please post within this thread links to YouTube videos that you find funny, interesting, bizarre, or otherwise worth watching for whatever reason.

Please give a short description of the content.. or make it a mystery. It's your choose, as long as it results in distraction.

2 Thessalonians 3:10-12

For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.

At the Melbourne airport, nearly time to board our flight to Adelaide to see the wrinkly old Rolling Stones.

Not that I know him very well, but I imagine we'd leave each other alone most of the time, which is all I ask for in a neighbor.
12  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Is this passage ironical? on: October 23, 2014, 01:07:21 am
No, and the adjective form of "irony" is "ironic." The -al suffix is superfluous (unless you're trying to sound ironicalisticish.)

Your story has just a somewhat wry humorous observation.

I can tell it's summer because the mirror ball I hung at the kitchen window only makes a light display inside when the sun is at particular angles in the afternoon from this time of year until mid March. Today it began. It wasn't done on purpose this way, it was a happy accident a couple of years ago. We call it "fabulous hour." Added bonus: from torturing our two cats playing with laser pointers they've learned to randomly attack the spots of light that twirl on the walls and floor. Life is good.

I had no idea he existed until he posted about me in the parody the previous poster thread with "I exist, guys!" which is a pretty cute observation. He genuinely hadn't crossed me radar until that point. Looking through his posts, he seems like a generic conservative hack, but I don't really have any opinion of him as a person. FF by default.

Hey guys I wrote a rhyme

I loves me some LeBron
My knees go weak for Fitzgerald
If he gave me gay marriage
My virginity'd be imperiled

I'd Kasich him on the lips
Let him O-hi!-o! up my valley
And if the press came calling
I'd tell them all about me

I'm a real straight shooter
You can put that blunt down
That's right, get your act together
Because Adam's in town

I've got no time for that freedom
I'm not that introspective
If sexuality weren't an issue
I'd be ultraconservative

Beginning the week with Monday is upsetting to the Seventh Day Adventists and therefore I ask that infraction points be handed out for religious bigotry.
17  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of "All About That Bass" on: October 20, 2014, 01:36:47 am
I had never heard this song.

I like poppy music, but I like varied instrumentation and lyrics too. This is very bland to me and, as mentioned, I found the actual lack of bass pretty silly. This was very straightforward and didn't inspire any emotions (though the dancing obese man was good for a smile).

As for the idea behind the song, it is okay. It's good to be positive about what you're stuck with. But it's not good to be proud of being unhealthy (or thinking that being a massive sweaty tub of bipedal grease is "perfect." Not that the singer herself is outrageously overweight.)

Overall, I'll be glad not to hear it again.

Interesting to hear that comparison with Toledo. The last time I was there I had this feeling of despair, it felt so lifeless and hopeless, like everyone had given up. The only maintained buildings in the city were public. That Lima feels even worse...

Today we traveled to a small town south of here because my partner had a craving for a pie. I enjoyed a steak and curry pie, and met a bulldog outside the bakery. Her owner said his name was Jelly Beans. Adorable.

On the way there we'd passed some signs advertising fresh fish so we had an adventure finding that. Once there we waited patiently for an older woman to finish banging on about her late husband, then managed to convince the man we didn't need a whole kilo of whiting, thank you. On our way back to the car the old lady suddenly popped up to offer us fresh donuts she'd made for a church fundraiser. Free donuts. Win.

Then this arvo I dicked around in .NET while my partner napped. After she got up we cooked the fish in the actifry, and now we lounge until bedtime. Life is good.

FB, but I couldn't stand listening to more than one song of theirs, say, a month? anymore. Were I still 15 sitting at a drum kit, I'd try and play through Dookie. Were I 18 and upset with George Bush, I'd listen to American Idiot. Now, maybe every now and then I'll enjoy a song for nostalgia. That's about it.

We don't really disagree. I think you just came across as a little unforgiving of the older generation who complain about the jobs drying up and don't do anything about it. The great majority of my own family who have remained in Ohio have done so almost exclusively because the living matriarch is there. Otherwise they'd be in Texas and California and wherever. Nevertheless they complain about how run-down and depressing it is and how hard it is to find a good job. But they can't abandon family in good conscious like I could, being only 21 and full of beans (kidney beans). In any case, tales of the particular particles of rust in the rust belt make for good reading, especially when they voice individual opinions of political affairs and figures, especially especially when Islamophobia and ideological inconsistencies are used to paint a portrait of being salt of the earth. Hilarious stuff.

It's still amazing to me how people in Ohio think that a quarter black population constitutes some sort of negro ghetto. A quarter black here is a mass affluent McMansion suburb.

People in Ohio (people in general actually) don't think about towns as "a quarter black." They think "there's way more black people than what I normally see" and connect that to run down, urban environments. I would hope most of them don't think one is a cause of the other, but they probably do.

I've only been through Lima a handful of times but it's similar to Toledo, where I grew up. NW Ohio is an unbelievably depressing place. But, like what Torie said (an excellent post by the way), your connections to family and friends can be an overwhelming force to keep you put. And isn't that kind of just fine?

dead0, Ohio is bleeding population like crazy. Texas is being overwhelmed with Midwesterners looking for work. The people who are not moving shouldn't be blamed for clinging to the lives they've already worked their asses off for just because they lost the arbitrary geography/prosperity lottery eventually (say that five times fast). Their kids will probably gtfo though. I got waay out, obviously, and my other siblings ended up in, well, Texas.
