OK, enough about the porn - it's getting too inappropriate.
Do you dislike porn, Inks? I find it hard to believe any healthy guy in his 20s would. Perhaps you just haven't found your particular niche interest yet. There's a cornicopia to choose from. No need to starve yourself out of self-hatred. Embrace it.

Inks is right. Whether or not it's ok to discuss porn, Bushie said he was done with the topic and people should leave it alone.

No; his wishes have nothing to do with it... that was the agreement he made when the thread was reopened.  Short of a death threat, people can say whatever they want about him, but the discussion right now is inappropriate for the site.
Just to confirm, we have carte blanche on personal attacks on this thread, so long as there is no explicit threat of violence?  I was unaware that a moderator can suspend ToS selectively on one thread.

It's just way too messy to deal with? Are you resigning your duties? That's not how admin systems work. On a related note, if that is really how the police in Detroit operates, they are partially responsible for that town's epic fall. The really bad neighborhoods are where you want to go after people for things. It is the worst possible place for leniency.

Having established that this thread is a red light district of sorts, why then is mentioning porn disallowed?

I've never liked the inaugurations. I'm not much on pagentry. I wish they would just swear him in and call it a day.

I think I have figured out the key to my eyesight. When I'm tired and sleepy, my vision gets steadily worse until I go to bed. By the time I go to bed, my vision is pretty lousy, actually as everything is blurry. When I'm awake, my eyesight is quite a bit better. I still have a little blurry vision, but its mostly pretty sharp.
Have you been to an optometrist? That doesn't seem right.

My last eye exam included a pair of glasses and was $99.  I'm fortunate to say that's a fairly easy pill for me to swallow, but if you can volunteer for VTO, you can get your eyes checked out. It's one of the few arenas of healthcare where costs are reasonable. Probably beccause there are far fewer insurance claims.  What could possibly be more important than your vision? If you've had multiple checks for diabetes, I'd take the doctors at their word. The odds of multiple false negatives as astronomical.

I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I suspect the percentage of people without vision insurance is north of 50%. There's not much point to it. Regular health insurance will typically cover a severe eye problem. A basic eye exam is only about $50. You don't need vision insurance to get your eyes checked out. You need to go to work for a few hours.

Don't Baptists meet on Sunday nights too? And is there a one visit per week quota that needs to be filled? Is going every week mandatory?  Can you just watch it on tv or do you have to physically go?

Who the hell would want to watch those nuts on tv preach?
I don't see it as any crazier than going in person unless you're going to church to see/meet people. I remember jmfcst used to post youtube videos from his church. Same idea. No need to fuss with prettying oneself up.  Just kick back, knock church off the to do list, and get on with the day.

In Bushie's defense, a lot of people get screwed over in real estate. They borrow enormous sums of money because renting is stigmatized and "home ownership" is heralded as the be all end all adult status. Never mind the huge costs of closing the deal, the property taxes, the insurance, and the never ending responsibility and maintenance costs. In deciding whether to rent or to own, one, ideally, would consider factors beyond the advertised price, like how long one intends to remain at a property, whether or not one prefers to do the maintenance himself, and whether or not one can afford to be locked in to a property should a job or family change require a move. Especially should the housing market decline as it did a few years back. Plus, a prospective buyer must consider the opportunity cost of tying up capital either in a large down payment or private mortgage insurance, which protects the bank in case you default. Instead, most people quickly look down their noses at renters and buy the most expensive house a lender will let them. Which, in turn, drives up prices for everybody. Don't get me wrong. I like the idea of buying a house very much. I like comparing styles of houses and complaining about those I do not like. But it just doesn't make a lot of sense for many people, including me, to be buying right now.

I love the Fresh Market too! But I don't shop there much because I'm a cheapskate. I do have to go there to buy alfalfa sprouts because Kroger doesn't carry them. But you can buy ok food at WalMart without breaking the bank. Just stick to fresh foods as much as possible. Anything that resists spoiling is usually bad news. Stick to produce, lean protein, and whole grains. Don't go overboard on potatoes and rice, and avoid flour and sugar as much as possible.

It's a shame that Bushie hasn't found a nice lady to settle down with. He's managed to get all these jobs in the past 2 years, why couldn't he find a woman? Is it that they are all Mormon? Dish!
Even in today's economy it's harder to land a woman than a job. I feel pretty confident that romantic unemployment is >8%

Holy crap. He must've followed my advice and loaded up on booze and pizza.
His over the top euphoria is more in line with stimulants than depressants. Maybe Bushie has taken up meth.
