Perverts

I recently joined a dating website - Cupid.com. I like the way it is set up and it really does filter people who live near me versus people clear across the state. However, it has a darker side . . . some of my fellow posters are complete jackasses.… more »

You're always supposed to be thankful. Even when you hate the gift, you smile, nod and thank the person telling them that you love it. Even when it looks like reindeer dung. I get my fair share of crappy gifts. Hell, one of my aunts has made crappy… more »

'Tis The Season

These stories are local to me, but I have to wonder how much of this stort of stuff goes on across the country. While the Fundies are worried about big business taking the Christ out of Christmas (nevermind that they co-opted a combination of pagan… more »

Pot. Kettle. Fuck it.

Saddam please just shut the fuck up. Because no one cares if you were roughed up by your captors. I don't at least. more »

Cheney is an ass. Really. I don't think he has to try either - I'm betting it just comes naturally. His latest comment that "it's not accident that the United States has gone four years without a terrorist attack" is at the same level as a late-night… more »

Equality. Enh.

While America continues to attack its own citizens at every opportunity, those who were once known for flagrant human rights violations, now seem to be more tolerant than "the land of the free". S. Africa's Top Court Blesses Gay Marriage more »

When I stepped into the hotel room it hit me like an un-gloved fist. Stale cigarette. It was literally like walking into a Jersey refinery, yes it was that thick. Now I've travelled a lot. As a kid in the days predating the official "smoking section" I… more »

I’ve commented before on my hatred for ad campaigns. In nearly any given commercial break, you’ll hear a stupid ad. It’s like clockwork. After reading a recent thread on another forum, and blatantly ripping off some of their examples, let me take a few… more »

Sick Of The God Damn Cryassing!

You know what I hate - ENDLESS BITCHING! "Someone cut me off ... Commercials are annoying ... You got your chocolate in MY peanut butter" -- BOO FUCKING HOO! Shut the fuck up and deal with it! It's amazing that the people who bitch and complain the most… more »

They are persistent...

Is there even a market for these things anymore? I mean, I would suppose someone would have looked into it at some point. I mean, there is no way they’d keep doing it if they didn’t get results from it. Even AOL isn’t dumb enough to keep sending out… more »

RTFA

It’s a simple idea. Just read the fucking article. In my constant attempts to kill time at work, I spend a lot of time reading forums. Politics, general life, video games, all manner of topics. Generally, they have new posts often enough to kill a… more »

But it's crap...

I've never really understood some people's choice in beer. I do not consider myself a beer snob. Honest. I drink what I drink because it tastes good. Has a good beer flavor. But what makes a man decide Natty Ice is the best beer? And defend that choice… more »

I'm struck blind!

Ok, not really. In truth, I clawed my eyes out. Or maybe I should have seared them with hot irons. You see, as a youthful male, I have ventured out onto the internet for the purposes of gathering and viewing pornography. For years, I've done this. I… more »

Late night pickup

So, my coworker headed out to McDonalds. He decided to buy some extra food in case we're snowed in. He goes through around 11:30 so they're on their late night, reduced item menu. Let me give you the conversation he had at the drive though. Buddy: Can I… more »

A small dose of reality

It’s not too much to ask. At least, I don’t think so. I know Hollywood loves to stretch the limits of reality in order to keep the drooling masses enthralled, but every new movie I see goes a little further into bizarro land. Yes, it’s a movie. Yes, I… more »
