I've got two, namely

That Doom feature in Wax Poetics was interesting. He was all like, "I'm just a regular guy

which I thought was too boring to post, and

GOD CUTTY WHY DON'T YOU QUIT

which was supposed to be a funny post on the lose weight thread, but I thought it might be interpreted as serious.

That phrase is interesting because it adjusts the emphasis so the sentence is more iambic. But it would have to because

I was gonna post on the '"500 Days of Summer" thread that I thought it would make a good back story for Cobra Commander, but I didn't feel like searching for the thread, coz what if someone already made the comment? I'd have to do 'edit' 'find' 'cobra', and display all posts. So, I posted it on facebook anyway.

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

a big problem with the future of the universe is that we can expect things to get more complex (law of entropy), while at the same time people prefer things to be simple. there is always going to be a battle between those who recognize the complex truth and those who exploit those who need things to be easy and binary.

i honestly have no idea what is acceptable anymore ... I feel like the biggest differences on ilx are between "idealism vs. pragmatism" along with differences about expressing/handling trauma and anger.

sarahell, Friday, 13 November 2020 21:00 (two weeks ago) link

one thing i believe I've learned over nearly twenty (20) years on ilx is that taking aggro or obnoxious people on the internet too seriously is almost always the wrong way to handle the situation, even and especially if it causes the dreaded IRL fight or flight reflex

There's a BBQ at John Gacy's house
His neighbors are all invited
With Gacy cooking all the food
Everyone will be delighted
To make the BBQ
Annual Gacy has decided
For all his friends and neighbors
With the drinks and food provided

The annual party at Gacy's house
Everyone had much fun
He invited his friends and neighbors
And Gacy cooked for everyone
The BBQ at John Gacy's house
Everyone was outside
But nobody knew of the dead boys
That Gacy stashed inside

Gacy cooks the food at a furious pace
His BBQ pits ignited
While contemplating great BBQ
Everyone's very excited
The food is served, and they take a bite
Everyone is delighted
But they'd have a fit if under the pit
They knew dead bodies resided

There's a BBQ at John Gacy's house
Come on everybody let's go check it out
There's a BBQ at John Gacy's house
With free drinks and food we'll scream and shout
There's a BBQ at John Gacy's house
Where all the dead boys are buried about
There's a BBQ at John Gacy's house
Come on everybody let's go check it out

Now I have to pee

When you walk in there you best prepare, the smell of deaths all around
He was the clown who made boys frown at Gacy's house it was stinky
He's over the pit as the flames emit the favorite all over town
The hit of the day till you go urinate everyone knows it's stinky

It's stinky, stinky because of all the dead boys
It's stinky, stinky he didn't kill girls only boys

It's stinky, stinky because of all the dead boys
It's stinky, stinky he didn't kill girls only boys
At Gacy's house it was stinky
Everyone knows it's stinky
