Lest we forget these were the guys who ended up forming motorcycle gangs when they got home. Dig those popped collars.
Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)
Body functions are gross, y’all. They’re normal, they’re natural, they’re also gross. Nobody wants to hear about any of them.
James May is obviously the mature one.
How much difference really is there between McDonald’s super-processed food and molecular gastronomy? … If you put a Cheeto on a big white plate in a formal restaurant and serve it with chopsticks and say something like “It is a cornmeal quenelle, extruded at a high speed, and so the extrusion heats the cornmeal ‘polenta’ and flash-cooks it, trapping air and giving it a crispy texture with a striking lightness. It is then dusted with an ‘umami powder’ glutamate and evaporated-dairy-solids blend.” People would go just nuts for that.

One Of The Last Confederate Veterans From Florida- Having Claimed To Have Served With The 4th Alabama Infantry From 1864-1865.
"Uncle" Bill Lundy lived in Laurel Hill and Crestview.
He was reported to be one of the last living Confederate Veterans in Florida. The Okaloosa Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the William Lundy Camp, is named for him.

this is better than any television show i have ever seen
I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t as good as what I actually got
For Halloween, I dropped in at the Comedy Cellar as Thomas the Tank Engine.
The Best Little Hell House in Texas
Brother Thomas turns to me and says, “We’re shorthanded in the abortion room.” I’ve gone to work as a volunteer at a Hell House, an evangelical Christian haunted house in Cedar Hill, Texas, designed to scare kids away from sinning. “I’m either going to put you in the abortion room,” Brother Thomas says, “or the drunk-driving room.”
“The abortion room would be great,” I say, feeling mildly uncomfortable that I’m much older than the rest of the teenage volunteers.
“When the visitors come in,” Brother Thomas says, leading me to the room where a fake abortion performed by actors using grocery store meat to simulate a discarded fetus is supposed to scare kids away from premarital sex, “what I need you to do is yell in a strong voice, ‘Watch the steps!’ If we don’t say, ‘Watch your step,’ and they fall, we’re liable.”
At Hell House, Jesus steers kids toward the Lord. But he can’t prevent lawsuits.
What the hell is a “hell house”? If you’re not familiar, Hell House is a Christian alternative to the standard haunted house. Instead of Freddy Krueger, these costumed evangelists scare the holy Jesus into you—literally.
In this house of horrors, being gay results in dying of AIDS and premarital sex can lead the homecoming queen down a slippery slope of prostitution. Youth groups visit and are led through a series of “real life” horrific scenes designed to create terror and revulsion. Hell House outreach manuals include astute tips on creating authentic abortion room scenes, such as: Purchase a meat product that closely resembles pieces of a baby to be placed in a glass bowl.
I went to one of these one time, thinking it was going to be a straightforward haunted house deal, as it was advertised. Nope—abortion, suicide, domestic violence and other way-too-real scenarios that weren’t scary, just deeply disturbing. The scary part was that the people coming up with these totally deranged and real-world-based set-ups were so intent on getting US to “fix” our own sick minds.
It ended with a group prayer session.
Oh, cool, Russel Brand took a freshman poli sci class.
