I'm hoping this doesn't make anyone feel uncomfortable (the intent is quite the contrary) but I find it weird that the media's expectation of "beauty" is so warped they have to change models appearances so much to attain that "perfect form" that is unrealistic.  I feel bad for the models, sure they get paid but really the people who edit and manage the shoots are still saying you are unattractive on your own.  :-\

on a separate note, I need to watch attack of the show more often

Conversations with my mother

"In a way it's kind of like grieving."

Ugh. I hate this attitude so much.

Depending on what words you choose, it links to relevant tweets (the ellipses at the end are links). If you go the therapy route, it links to a tweet about how she hates that attitude as well.

I found that insanely cute. I want that outfit, it looks fun :) I think that's Venus... with the orange outfit.. it's been awhile since I've seen it. It was always on after I came home :)  That and then ReBoot.



This looks extremely painful.. but she does look extremely beautiful.. so that evens it out, right?

I don't really know where I was coming from either. I just know it looks really painful and she is really pretty.. and reminds me of the girl from Alice: Madness Returns (Alice..) :)

And it also reminded me of the Highlander movie where the guy has staples in his neck.

From a Marine Corps Quarterly counseling form.



Yeah... I need clarification. Is the goal of this counseling to IMPROVE my sarcasm, or to eliminate it? Because quite frankly, Staff Sergeant, I feel like I could be more sarcastic if I set my mind to it.

Otto Dix is one of my favorite artists.  Though some of his paintings are morbid and people may find disturbing....so I put a few of them in spoilers! He was a WW1 vet and you can see the impression it has on some of his art. Truly captures how horrible his experiences were.  :cry:

This is a real thing.
Not only Kirk but James Kirk? I do hope that as soon as he was promoted to Captain, he legally changed his middle name to Tiberius. If that was already his middle name, then it seems that he has lived up to it.

I don't know how the Navy works. Can you be temporary captain of a commissioned but inactive ship? They're probably too Serious and Businesslike to put him in command of CVN-65 for a day.

Hahah that would be cool, but unfortunately Captain Kirk does not qualify for the command of a United States Navy carrier. He's a black shoe (surface warfare) and to command a carrier you need to be a naval flight officer. Captain Kirk seems to be on his way up though (being the plank holder on a new ship class is a BIG FUCKING DEAL, especially for the Zumwalt class destroyers) so by the time the new Enterprise (CVN-80) joins the fleet, Captain Kirk has a good shot of being Rear Admiral (lower half) Kirk and could conceivably take command of the Enterprise group. Thus taking the Enterprise as his flag ship, and getting to command her that way. In the Star Trek primary timeline, there have been nine space craft named Enterprise, starting with the American space shuttle Enterprise and the V.S.S Enterprise, Virgin Galactic's first commercial space craft.

Interestingly, as of CVN-80, there have also been nine commissioned ships of the United States Navy that have carried the name U.S.S Enterprise.

Military?  Serious?  lol...

The stories one of my instructors (who worked on a sub), the ones he could tell at least, say no.

Then again, submainers are an...eclectic bunch.

There's also combat dining-ins that afaik all branches do, which are basically big food/water balloon fights.

Unless my eyes are really screwed up, while the MOVEMENT is terrifying the cobra doesn't actually strike once. It is totally wrapping that kid up for a snack though. For you non-animal types who didn't watch Steve Irwin growing up, cobras are stupid lethal snakes. They are easy to identify by their hoods. (that flared portion just below the head) when the hood is deployed it means the snake is knowing even more hatred then normal, and if it's looking at you while the hood is deployed, it means YOU are the target of that hate.

Here's a video of a kid who's best friends with a massive Burmese Python.
the kid and the snake have literally been together since the Chambath was in his cradle.

Oh! Hey look! Explanation for that gif found!

Children in snake catchers families in Srikakulam district of Andhrapradesh play with dangerous snakes. These people are very poor to purchase toys, so that they give snakes as toys to their children to play.

The video also clarifies that the snakes are defanged.

Wouldn't that fuck with your head if you were the cobra? You're one of the baddest motherfuckers on the planet, but some dude catches you, defangs you and now you're a children's toy.

In other news happy Samhain everyone!

Didn't know that. Probably wouldn't have posted the gif if I did.

Darwin at work.. I really think we should just take the warning labels off of things and let the population thin itself.. along with invalidating any lawsuits that arise from the result of stupidity.

Yes, I'm sure there was a warning label on it that said "Warning: If kicked may spin around and hit you in the face!". That's totally the aspect which would be safeguarded by doing such things, not, say, murdering people with allergies for the grand cause of Social Darwinism.

It definitely wouldn't confuse lack of knowledge with stupidity, either!* That's even provided you're fine with saying "Stupid people should die".

I consider all of the above to be far more 'stupid', though, so good luck with that.

* I've genuinely heard posters here completely flabbergasted that a bag of "Monkey nuts" had a note saying it contained peanuts, as a warning to people with allergies. Even though it's a local name for them that I had no clue referred to peanuts. If I bought those thinking they were a different kind and had that allergy then that's a really bad situation. They just had the good sense to realize certain words aren't universal. But that's apparently ridiculous.

I'm with Valdis on this one.

Also I never heard of monkey nuts referring to peanuts.  Peanuts and Gober peas are the only names for peanuts I have heard.  The "Gober peas" one I learned through a song in music class back in the 2nd or 3rd grade.  I have yet to actually hear anyone else refer to it as such.

I can see why people were "flabbergasted" because if I knew I had a nut allergy (whatever type that would be) and I see "Monkey Nuts", I would connect the dots and stay away from it; that's just my opinion. 

I didn't intend for it be taken as broad as that. There are some good warning labels like the ones you mentioned, but when talking about Darwin it's usually associated with the "Don't stick your finger in this, it'll hurt" type labels :)  I have been "poisoned" by the movie Idiocracy and whenever I see stupid crap like what that person is doing.. it makes me fear that we are just heading there that much quicker.

Peanuts aren't nuts, though.

Hint: Not a scientific document. Doesn't work like that. :-)
