Fine by me.
Fine by me.
Wait… Frigid Tosspots? Are you referring to the Packers as chronic masturbaters or something?
Oh, sure. Go on and be reasonable on the internet. How dare you.
Half of these are lies. LIES I TELL YOU.
For #1, I think Alton Brown was on to something with his idea of using tins instead of glass jars. Light not be as bad as air exposure when it comes to keeping spices fresh, but it’s certainly something to eliminate when you can.
Counterpoint: I’ve never had sex after being in bacon.
Let’s not go overboard here. Nobody (male or female; gay, straight or otherwise; in any body type that there is) looks good in mens formalwear once it gets all loose and sloppy, like it is in the first two pictures of Ms. Page in menswear here. I have no other arguments, though. Being YOURSELF when you dress is the best fashion sense there is (not to mention… shouldn’t that be the point, anyway?).
Oddly enough, it drives me up the wall for reasons that have little to do with grammar. (Sarcastic translation: “It annoys because not grammar” :D) It bothers me more because I think it is a half-assed way to make a point. It tells us why the author thinks the video is trending without really telling us anything at all. I’ll admit that there’s a part of me that appreciates the fact that I’m trusted to connect the dots so the author can use fewer words, but I still feel like the “because ___” line of reasoning is just a shorthand for the inability to articulate one’s ideas. (Sarcastic translation: “It bothers me because lazy, but I do like dots”)
I mean, it’s not the craziest leap of logic I’ve come to accept in this show (I enjoy it despite it’s logical flaws), but I suppose I don’t think we need to count out Ezra as A just yet.
The show is a lot more fun to watch when you don’t care about logical stuff like that. I see it more as a fun, slightly pulpy distraction. I have my grown-up shows that I watch when I want to take a show seriously. For this show, I often just forget about most of the things that happened more than a season ago so I can focus more on how entertaining the show is and less on what a convoluted mess the show’s central mystery has become.
“Where can I find this magical place?” -My dogs
I don’t get it… how is Ezra writing a book about Alison mutually exclusive to him being A? And if he’s not A, then what’s the deal with his uber surveillance lair?
“This video was originally uploaded in 2011 but it’s trending this week because obviously.” “… because obviously.” I’m not even an English major (quite the opposite, I went to school for Engineering), but this kind of thing just drives me up the wall.
Does this count as irony?
“Don’t sass me… food.”
Looks more like a Five Legged Caribou, if you ask me.
#18: I’m pretty sure that’d be a good way to ruin even canned goods. There’s a surprising amount of heat that can come off of a refrigerator, to say nothing about all the dust that gets trapped back there.
Pelmeni is without question one of my favorite foods on the planet. When I was in college, there was a little hole-in-the-wall place near campus that served pelmeni and only pelmeni, and I was actually depressed when it went out of business. The guy who ran it now has another shop open, but alas I live elsewhere now so I have to subsist on homemade dumplings made with a mold that my wife got me for my last birthday. The traditional way to serve it would be not dissimilar to what’s in this article, but the place I went to served with butter sauce, a hot sauce (basically sriracha cut with rice vinegar), curry powder, cilantro, sour cream and some rye bread on the side. Just describing it makes me both happy, hungry, and then sad that I just ate the last of my most recent batch of frozen homemade pelmeni.
Nyuk nyuk. You’d think if there was ONE time when they would’ve thought it wise to have the singers mime, it’d be with the Black Eyed Peas.
Let me break the news to you: Almost every performer in every Super Bowl halftime show is miming. Some (but not all) of the singers and drummers are the only exceptions, simply because it’s hard to effectively mime singing or drumming without looking ridiculous. The simple fact is that these shows are massive undertakings, and getting the band set up for sound isn’t as simple as plugging into an amp and turning it to 11. There are a lot of elements to coordinate and not much time to do it in. In theory, it ought to be possible to effectively set up a band to play live in the few minutes that they have between the end of the half and the start of the show… but I don’t think the powers in charge of the Super Bowl halftime shows are bothered enough to try to figure it out.
That’s good on you, and I have no doubt you worked hard to hold that distinction in your family, but that hardly reverses the overall trend of how often a lot of humanities degrees don’t end up seeing a lot of application in people’s careers. (This is the part where I sheepishly admit that I’m a Mechanical Engineer whose job is at most 10% engineering these days. Maybe I”m not one to talk, but a lot of my classmates could!)
1) How is this a “snub”, exactly?
2) He’s not wrong, you know.
3) [Make assumption about what Kaczynski studied in college, insert snide comment here]
Let’s take a moment and reflect on the notion that The Object Of Buzzfeed’s Affections is no more worthy of being put on a pedestal than any other actress in the world. Yes, she’s delightfully quirky, highly entertaining, and she has a self-depricating streak that your average actress will never have. But underneath it all is just another insecure actress, standing in front of a camera with a contractual obligation to talk about her dress and complaining about her body fat despite the fact that she is clearly in pretty damn good shape.
Ugh… will Kate ever bother trying to give a normal life to her family? It’s a shame that neither of their parents seem to be able to provide a good, stable center for their kids’ lives- but both parents have brought it on themselves to varying degrees.
This post shatters many stereotypes about gamers (and wives, for that matter).
I, on the other hand, could totally believe that Ms. Swift cannot handle a joke. It’s got the surprise factor of a politician lying.
Team Amy and Tina, naturally. If only because Taylor Swift fans are evidently caricatures of the worst teenage girls you’ve met.
I think there are obvious corruption charges that could be laid here. Example: The part where one councilwoman was able to singlehandedly merge the town with a neighboring town (and help them out with tons of debt).
One of my dogs stopped doing this about three months after we adopted her. I kind of miss it, although that’s mostly because she howls if you leave her in the back yard too long, and it doesn’t take very long for that to happen because she’s such a baby.
Let’s not be hyperbolic here: anorexia is a dangerous problem to be sure, but that’s hardly the only way that one could “eat less”. That’s like saying that the only way to use less gas is to never drive a car.
We were offside on the field goal attempt anyway, so even if Davon had gotten a piece of it, SF would’ve had another shot. It’s okay, though: We weren’t that good of a team this year (we had tons of injuries that held us back, but still…), we probably got a better post-season than we deserved, and the most important part of all: THE BEARS STILL SUCK.
In my opinion, Big ANYTHING is a pretty substantial risk to ANYONE’S way of life. Big Government will tax and tax and tax because they don’t know how to balance a checkbook. Having a strong government can do many great things for nation: keep it safe, help provide basic human services to those who need it, provide infrastructure that keeps us functioning at a high level with a high quality of life. Unfortunately, a strong government doesn’t know when to stop throwing money at a problem instead of a solution. A strong government also sees fit to spend obscene amounts of money spying on it’s own people. As liberal as many of the readers of this site are (and although I consider myself a moderate, I certainly lean towards liberalism), I don’t think we can deny that there is such thing as TOO big of a government. Big Business will not rest until the fewest people have the most money. They don’t value your community, they don’t value your way of life, they value your money (and in the case of the tech industry: your privacy) and will take as much of it as they can while giving you as little as possible in return. You think bankers learned any lessons after the bailout in ‘08, or did they laugh their asses off as they cashed their government checks and faced no consequences for their role in the mortgage crisis? Do you think the insanely wealthy people who run our sports leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, etc.) give a shit about the fact that they bleed on average $2 billion a year in public subsidies to replace perfectly functional stadiums? Big Labor… well, I don’t have as much to say about Big Labor. They’re just not as much of a threat as they used to be, but I defy any of you to tell me that you’ve worked in both a place with a labor union and a non-union place (albeit one with a good relationship between labor and management and a profit sharing plan… that’s kind of a crucial caveat) and tell me that the latter doesn’t function better.
I absolutely love that the league does this. I still think they aren’t as consistent as they could be with their supplementary discipline (ahem… Shana-bans), but this is a very good start.
I hate tequila, and therefore am not a big fan of this list.
As long as he’s still in love with the works of Ayn Rand, I’m not going to believe that he’s capable of finding God. Ayn Rand’s Objectivism and pretty much any reasonable interpretation of Christianity are wildly incompatible.
Won’t happen until people choose to go those establishments instead of chains. People speak with their wallets.
Okay, I really wish I could edit this: - “But if A&E is not the government” ought to read “But A&E is not the government”
- My aside about Robertson’s comparison between homosexuality and beastiality is not an attempt to validate the comparison. I think a direct comparison between the two is flat out stupid and ridiculous. My point in my little aside was just that my understanding of the context was that he believes homosexuality is a sin, and then he named other things that he believes are sinful (beastiality, drunkards, swindlers, etc.). It seemed to me that he was simply pointing out sins from the Old Testament to say that sinners won’t inherit the Kingdom of God. Not exactly the direct “comparison” that some people are making it out to be, although you could probably make some safe assumptions that he does see them as being similar.
- The main point here really is just that this kind of story has nothing to do with the first amendment.
