This is a boil on the butt of humanity.

By the time I heard enough about this “sex” thing that my curiosity was piqued we had a computer. I don’t think there was Google yet, so I guess you could say I AOLed it. Quite an education.
I came here just to make sure stuffing was #1, because stuffing is the only acceptable option for #1.
“Why do you shower at night? That’s so weird?”
Because if I showered in the morning I’d have to get up at 5 AM to have my hair all done and blowdried by the time I need to leave for work, that’s why.
Actually quite accurate, but for the love of your sanity, you don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving morning to start everything! Almost everything on a Thanksgiving table can be prepped beforehand so that all you have to do day-of is get it all in the oven and cooked (make an oven schedule). Then when your parents show up early (and they probably will) you can smile and say “All under control, have a drink and watch the parade with me!”
I’m so glad for you that you’ve never had a catcaller attempt to follow you and actually make you feel terrified. No one deserves that. But some of us have experienced it anyway.
I once had a service station employee politely compliment me, I said thank you and went about my day. It was one of those older service stations where they still have to take your card and swipe it rather than there being a swiper thing at the front of the counter. When I got home and got on Facebook I learned that he had found me on the internet and started harassing me online by using my name from my card. So, guys, if you give a woman who’s a stranger a polite compliment and behave in a way that maybe your women friends have told you they consider nice and non-threatening and the woman still has a “fuck you” attitude about it, they might have something in their past that has taught them to be suspicious of any strange man approaching. All I had to do was block this guy from my social media accounts because I don’t have my email address or phone number public on them and that particular encounter ended up not doing any damage to me, but plenty of women have had a lot worse done to them by someone who seemed as polite and respectful as they could be. I see a lot of men here asking how to compliment women in public and I see a lot of answers, some of them contrasting. That would be because women aren’t all the same. We can no better answer what women want than a man can answer what men want, because one individual can’t speak for an entire group of people. The trick to complimenting strangers without being disrespectful is reading their body language. If everything about the way they’re carrying themselves says they want to be left alone - either clearly walking with a purpose and headed somewhere without looking with much interest at their surroundings OR wearing a hoodie, earbuds, etc and generally appearing closed off - there is no way to compliment that person without either annoying them or making them feel uncomfortable. Their body language is telling you that any approach is a violation of their boundaries. If a person is smiling at the people around them, clearly open and engaged with their surroundings, you can try a “Hi, sorry to interrupt your day, but I just wanted to let you know that your hair/eyes/whatever is really beautiful/your shirt is really cool” or basically any compliment that’s not sexual and doesn’t imply that you expect them to respond and chances are that person will take your compliment as you intended (assuming here that your intention is simply to give a compliment). The creepiest thing that has ever happened to me was driving with my windows down. I was stopped at a light and this guy pulled up in the lane next to me, rolled his window down, and said “Where you goin beautiful?” I gave him a “fuck off” look and rolled my windows up. I tried not to make eye contact with him again but I had to look over at something in my passenger seat and as soon as my eyes met his he made the tongue between the finger V gesture. Thankfully the light turned green but he followed me for fifteen minutes as I drove around everywhere except where I had actually intended to go (which was my house, so.. duh) until he finally gave up.
22/27 because I turned my houserobe around backwards and made a snuggie and I don’t avoid a social life ENTIRELY. And I’m not going to waste all of that effort it took to put on party clothes and makeup just to go home early.
What the fuck dinosaur is that? That is a REALLY pathetic looking creature…
I would hope they wouldn’t put a character’s actual death in a trailer, but that’s definitely what it looks like.
It’s a US corporation that handles bagillions of dollars in student loans.
No, the person who wrote this article knows the mid-2000s high school age emo/scene kids and what kind of music they listened to. They’re the ones who didn’t know shit.
Can’t tell if troll or paranoid NRA member….
I love how the people who are apparently still emo kids feel the need to judge this list for not being hardcore enough or REAL emo or something. Grow up guys, seriously LOL.
Aside from the college ones (college is not for everyone), you might be sick of hearing them but that doesn’t make them any less true. Except #9, which is absolutely NOT true, and if I ever become one of those people who says that I wish to be taken out back and drowned.
Yesterday I went to Lowe’s to get one little houseplant. I left with so many plants, pumpkins, planters, potting soil to finally do something in the outside planters…. and then I planted, decorated, cooked a REAL dinner, got ready for bed by 10 PM…. and I ENJOYED it. And then I had a glass of wine and an existential crisis.
No like…. You really do not know how much laughter is possible until you click on this high not really knowing what to expect and you see someone casually trying to get some business done while being annoyed by a brobdingnagian cat
Matt Smith was definitely the easiest to guess.
Looks like a great idea for packaging the leftovers into lunches to take to work the next week. For the actual holiday? Nahh… plus this way you have to actually cook each component yourself. The traditional way I get to outsource everything but the turkey and dressing to my friends and family.
Community college: Well, I did cram a 4 year degree into 2 years, so I guess other than how busy I was the experiences are comparable. I actually did the boring thing and just went to the university in my hometown and pretty much refused to set foot on campus for anything other than class.
I never really got why jet lag is that big of a deal. I mean yeah, it kind of sucks, but just force yourself back into your routine and it’ll catch on in a day or two. I never found it to be much worse than what I feel like after a couple of nights of insomnia. Unless you’re a surgeon or something and need to be at peak performance not long after landing, just use common sense with eating right and hydrating and tough it out.
I guess I’ll add plans to ship a big box or two of books back to the states to my list of things to do when I finally make a trip across the pond…
Can you not tell that this is a joke? I wasn’t sure for a minute but when I got to 16 it became pretty obvious. (Also, this post is by someone in the UK, as evidenced by the fact that they call math “maths,” so your commentary on the US educational system is misplaced here.)
Where did you find that decent recent photo of Lindsay Lohan? Must’ve taken hours.
Totes forgot Mighty to Save. Memorable for: the louder people sang the higher the notes got.
“Wine Taster”…. no see, you got this wrong - wine tasting is what I do AFTER work.
I don’t know why the race of the baby needs to be an issue beyond the fact that it made the mistake obvious and they might not have known otherwise. They should be able to sue on the basis of the fact that the sperm bank made a huge mistake and used different sperm than the sperm she selected without having to go into this long explanation of why the baby being half black made their lives more difficult. That sounds like either blatant racism or it’s them trying to prove long term damages in order to get more money from the sperm bank, which is also a damn shitty thing to do (and also racist). If I got inseminated with the wrong sperm I’d sue the shit out of whoever was responsible, but I really don’t see a reason for the baby’s race to be a large factor in the lawsuit.
