Re: The Bar 2014 Edition

Re: cops taking pics

Wow. Paranoid much? Law enforcement personnel should be able to enjoy and appreciate the art, too. It's how we get them. Eventually, many of them become ONE OF US. Also, if you're not comfortable being photographed, don't climb the fucking art, you goddamned hippie. Unless a person is the subject of...

Re: The person below me

I haven't unpacked a fucking thing but my electronics and my toothbrush. My laundry is probably ripe in that garbage bag.

TPBM should really get that looked at.

Song Lyrics

Sometimes the lyrics from a song you like (or don't like) will strike a chord with you and you just want to share them. Normally, you find some flimsy pretext to work them into an Eplaya thread or post them, apropos of nothing, as your Facebook status. Well, stop that. Post them here instead. Thread...

I use "bugger" a lot. I actually use "fuck" relatively sparingly so that it retains its power when I do. I like "damn and blast," "Jesus Christ on a Pogo Stick!," "curses" and "excrement" as interjections of displeasure. For cursing at someone, I enjoy "I defecate on the grave of your whoring mother...

Actually, AntiM had her name removed from the rolls, so she's actually not a Mormon anymore.

Advocating electric cars because you oppose fossil fuel use is a bit dense, since 80 percent of our power comes from coal. Make it electric cars and nuclear power, and you may be on to something.

I think you're giving the human brain far too little credit.

Personally I'm a little bit on proscriptive side, grammatically speaking. Most of the rules we have are there in order to promote clarity and dispel ambiguity. For instance, the double negative rule.
