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.

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.

I recommend putting garlic in your salsa, avocado, and queso. It sharpens a rusty breath detector!

Sufjan Grafton, Saturday, 20 January 2024 00:42 (one month ago) link

Also nearly 100% effective against vampires. I have been eating garlic for 50+ years and haven't encountered a single vampire (as far as I know).

Wine not? (Ye Mad Puffin), Saturday, 20 January 2024 01:12 (one month ago) link

I've always wondered about that belief. Does it have anything to do with garlic's properties as a blood thinner?

immodesty blaise (jimbeaux), Saturday, 20 January 2024 01:13 (one month ago) link

No idea.

My suspicion is that vampirism is associated with eastern and central Europe. Garlic is more associated with western and southern European cuisines.

So if you're a Transylvanian or Romanian vampire, you might find the cuisines of France, Spain, Greece, and Italy a bit offputting.

(I sincerely apologize to any vampires who are reading this. I try not to stereotype, but vampires are not historically very skilled at public relations.)

Wine not? (Ye Mad Puffin), Saturday, 20 January 2024 01:24 (one month ago) link

Someone once told me that if you rub garlic on your feet, you will be able to taste it before too long.

I've never actually tried to verify.

immodesty blaise (jimbeaux), Saturday, 20 January 2024 01:29 (one month ago) link

You are probably safe from vampires who also have a foot fetish. Just sayin.

Like I said, I do agree with Scott Adams that... like, I personally do live in a state of war.

i should probably clarify this bit lol

i've never been in nam or iraq or any shit like that and maybe i'm, like, diminishing people's actual experiences in actual wars by saying that. i don't know. has anyone here been in an actual war the way people usually think of it? well, if i'm an asshole for saying i feel like i'm in a war, i'm an asshole

with scott adams war is "kill or be killed", it's that old patton quote where "war isn't about dying for your country, it's about making the other poor bastard die for his", and i guess i'm the other poor bastard. i think that patton quote is bullshit, the way generals look at it. to me war is about one thing and one thing only - not dying. i feel like it's a war because there are a lot of people in power who very clearly want those of us who fly the good ol' pink white and blue dead and and are putting that power to use in organized ways

it feels like a war because you never see the one that has your name on it. it feels like war because any of us could go at any time for no reason at all. it feels like war because there's some nebulous idea of "normal life" out there but i don't know where it is or what i'd do if we got there. it feels like war because i have no idea what's going to happen, good or bad. it feels like war because we could _lose_, and i'm very aware of it, and very aware of the possible thing that could to us if we did, and i try not to think about it. it feels like war because i try to make some meaning in my life besides survival but it feels like a ridiculous charade. it feels like war because the idea of being a "civilian" is ridiculous and absurd. it doesn't matter that i don't carry a gun and don't actually want to kill anybody. i'm one of _them_.

so yeah i do feel like i'm living in the middle of a war. it's not one i want. it's one i hope ends soon. i'm not the one fighting it, though, so it's not up to me. all i'm trying to do is continue to exist in the face of people who are very very upset, like scott adams-level upset, about my existing.

While the eggs are frying, prepare an ice bath: fill a bowl full of cold water, with 1 cup of ice cubes. This ice bath will stop the eggs from cooking when you remove them from the pan. When the timer goes off, kill the heat and immediately move the fried eggs from the pan with a spatula to the ice bath.
