Seems to be a lot of mention of male reproductive organs lately, both here and in the Republican debates. Does size really matter? Does even having such a slab of muscle mean anything?
Sure, this site is heavily visited and used by women to express thoughts and ideas. But if a male steps in and says something that goes against the grain, instead of being called out on it, as would be done with a female user, he gets raked over the coals. It's as if the women of the Amazons have declared
Does this bother anyone else? I mean, when you see people using the handicapped stall for no other reason than because it is "the Cadillac of toilets?" And just how much toilet paper does one person really need? When I hear the person in the next stall hitting the roll 10, 11, 12 times, I gotta wonder what they are cleaning up over there! Did Chernobyl strike again?
Sorry to bring this down to a level of seriousness, @Destiny, but I just have to say how the way things work in the world today are so messed up. That there are actually people who think that they get the upper hand by bringing down innocent people with such crazy and ridiculous actions!
Never mind the recent drama here. The terror attacks in today in Belgium put that into perspective. Lives were lost. Families are ripped apart. Innocent lives. People who were doing nothing to provoke
Seriously? Who isn't buying this stuff? It's not like we need 30 second spots to remind us, "hey, we need something in the bathroom that we can use to clean ourselves up a bit after we're done in there!" No! It's not like you have to send the kids out into the woods to gather up usable leafage as a suitable replacement! Sure, there's different kinds, some thicker or softer than others, but basically, toilet paper is toilet paper! If it's not made out of sandpaper, it's fine!
You know, just because the Duggar family, and other families like them, live and lead a different lifestyle, which makes them subject to ridicule, they are still human beings and worthy of basic human decency. If you took the kind of abuse that it heaped upon the Duggars, you'd be plenty upset about it, I kid you not. Yes, they have done some awful things, some of them illegal and disgusting, but we all have sinned and none of us are perfect.
I have nothing against the Black Lives Matter movement. Nor do I have anything against Blue Lives Matter. But when I get called out for suggesting that ALL lives matter because it "belittles" these causes, that's when I get upset. I don't care what color your skin is, what religion you believe in, what your gender or sexual preference is, if you treat people with basic human respect and decency, your life matters!
Until we all start acting like humans and stop labeling each other, a
Not all cultures believe in a practice of innocence until guilt is proven, but I happen to find it the fairest way to judge a defendant.
Just like when everyone was convinced that OJ Simpson killed his ex-wife and her friend, the facts that were presented did not conclusively determine his guilt. Similarly, the "facts" presented here by some of the members have not proven a damn thing. The fact that people would dig into a person's personal life, based solely on not believing their words
Credit here goes to Wikipedia...
Toe cleavage is the partial exposure of a woman's toes in shoes that are cut low enough at the vamp.
The implied sexual aspects also come into play for some. Dominatrix Claudia Varrin references the attraction to "stiletto pumps with the low vamp" that allow "lots of toe cleavage". And Frederick's of Hollywood has promoted open-toe shoes as "sexually suggestive" due to the toe cleavage.
Does anyone really find that tiny exposed crack between
I will admit to being lazy about doing cleanly things around the house. When I get properly motivated though, I can do a pretty decent job of getting things in order. It even feels good to get something accomplished once you're done and you can admire the effort you put forth to complete the task.
But one thing I can't get over is making the bed. What's the purpose? To impress the people who are coming to see your bedroom? Who in the world would that be?!?! My bed isn't at some swank
What is with ear wax, toe jam and belly button lint? Are there any more worthless things our bodies could create? You can't even collect the stuff and make something good from it. Who wants to buy this collection of grungy ear wax I've been saving since 1978??? It's not like you can decorate it and hang it on your wall. It doesn't even have an appealing color to any of it. I mean, imagine if you wiped something out of your ear that was a bright neon blue. That would at least be something
Why is it that we always dread going to the dentist? Never mind that 99% of the reason for seeing a dentist is not for good reasons. You just know that the one tiny problem with one tooth is going to result in root canal and laughing gas after effects!!! It doesn't help that the guy has a master's degree in drilling with an overly large object!!!
Some dentists are just demented and have that look about them that tells you "something just ain't right here!"
Fortunately, I have a dent
You know those times when you stub a toe, or you've had a high anxiety day and just nothing seems to go right, or when you slice your finger with a kitchen knife, and the only way to express yourself is with at least one foul language word? You need something that allows you to vent out and screaming out "fluffy pink tissue!" just doesn't get it done. When that bowling ball lands on your foot, you have to let out an agonizing string of obscenities that would embarrass even the roughest of sail
If a man plays with himself, it's called masturbation. Then why when a woman play with herself is it not called mistressbation? Furthermore, if you have someone do it for you, shouldn't that be servantbation?
Sorry @Destiny, no memes for you on this one!
On this Memorial Day in the United States, I want to remember Harambe, a rare western lowland gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo, who was shot and killed by zoo staff to save a 4-year old boy who had slipped into the gorilla enclosure. Zoo officials say tranquilizing the gorilla would have been too slow and a staggering 400-pound animal could have stumbled and/or fallen on the boy. Commotion from the crowd made the animal more agitated. However, it appeared the animal was trying to protect the chi
No sure if @HerNameIsBuffy caught this one yet, but there is a very special holiday coming up on May 2nd
That’s because it’s World Naked Gardening Day, an annual event where people are supposed to drop their drawers and get down and dirty.
Now in its 10th year, World Naked Gardening Day is traditionally celebrated the first Saturday in May.
Pervert aviators are also working on making it World Fly Your Drone Day!
So 19-year old model, Bella Hadid, showed up at the Cannes Film Festival in this very revealing dress...
Not only does she have the looks and figure to pull off this look, but she has the confidence in herself to wear it in public, sans underwear!
I know when I was 19, I did not have anywhere near this kind of confidence! Back then, I was still spelling my name Cray-zee, just because I did not know who I really was as of yet. But this woman appears completely comfortable in thi
What if... one day you woke up and everything was completely opposite of what you knew your entire life? Left was right, black was white, up was down... Imagine eyes in the back of your head, which is of course what you use to walk with! Or how about Monday as the last day of a 5-day weekend! The Earth rotates the other way and the sun rises in the west and sets in the east, all at night of course. It could be so maddening that attempts to end your life would only make you live forever!!!
We should all be more like NFL football players. Why do I say that? Because every time they execute a play, like they are paid handsomely to do, they celebrate like the clock just struck midnight on New Year's Eve! They point, they strut, the high five, and they dance. Boy do they dance! They must think those tight uniform pants showing off all 300 pounds of their junk in the trunk maes them somehow adorable.
But wait, perhaps this somehow gets you started on a second career. Take fo
So I guess there has been some speculation over who I am, what I am, who I know, who I am having relations with, etc.
I'm here to set the record straight so that there will be no more rumors. I am outing myself to all of you right here, right now.
I am a 418-year old vampire from Transylvania. I will suck the blood of anyone I find delicious, including trolls.
I currently possess the Gem of Amara, which allows me to walk in daylight.
So I' watching television last night and an ad comes on for this show called "Chasing Destiny." I'm thinking, really, they are going to follow @Destiny around and make a show about her daily routine and stuff? Then I find it's just this:
Some kind of talent search show. So disappointed. I was thinking something more like this:
Three astronauts crash down on a planet and emerge from their capsule to a world of clean air, blue skies, beautiful beaches and clear, glistening water. The environment appears glorious, as if never destroyed by human activity. As the three men gather themselves and brace for life on this new world, they notice that they are very alone. They look around and see no other people or movement of any kind except for the soft waves trickling onto the sandy beach where their capsule washed up.
Despite the number of scientific studies done showing that climate change due to human conditional factors actually DOES exist, many Republicans aren't buying it. Never mind all of the factories that they want to build will pollute the air and cause more greenhouse problems. Never mind that the Arctic ice caps are measured smaller than in the past and ocean levels are rising. That just all happened by coincidental chance.
But what if we mad climate change a real voting issue? I mean, fo
You know, this forum is presented as a place to snark on the Fundies and their practices and ideas. It's not about snarking, or worse, on each other! We just get over the emotional roller coaster of one drama and then another one starts! Can't we all just be kind to each other, thoughtful of one another's feelings, and stop with the hurtful rhetoric?
Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.
Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator? Why can't they ask for a range?
Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there? She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here. I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly. My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.
My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us. (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown)
Bribes still work, right? In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics. How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?
I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath? Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly. Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt?
I've been married twice, both times to Catholics. First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something. I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently. I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.
The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are. I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget. Member for at least four months. Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful. That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc. That church shopping for the aesthetic is a sacrilege or such. I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid. But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
This is how I'm rationalizing it.
I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.
They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.
I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is. They owe me.
Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.
You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster. If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us. One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me.
When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one. Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa. Wish he was here now to handle this.
