Reporting in from the Midwest: Everything is broken out here, too.
So...sensation-seekers are sensation-seekers?
The Hot Springs, Arkansas, ghost tour is worth the $13; the guy who does it is a totally earnest ghost-hunter, and he tells a good story.
I definitely work with someone who is demonstrative and outgoing...and their sneezes reflect that.
omg artisanal pocket sundial—that is where we disagree.
So the coroner is reported to have written, "...the fact that one or more of her children were born without enamel on their teeth...should have been treated by her, and by her family, as a warning."
But (human) children aren't usually born with teeth, period. What the hell was he talking about?
This is why it was so amazingly dumb for Google and AOL to mess up Gchat/AIM functionality the way they did in the name of "fixing" it.
Also, Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday is November 11. It seemed SO MEANINGFUL in high school when I learned he had the same birthday as a real-life crush of mine... See also: numerology and horoscope kits for high-school girls.
This reminds me of the "stalker theory" I came up with in college, when a lot of my friendships changed significantly, and so there were suddenly all these people I USED to be friends with who I had to come to terms with losing in some sense. When you spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about, talking about, and even writing publicly about people who you've actually once known in real life, but who perhaps you haven't been in contact with in a while, people tend to label that as "stalking" or "stalkerish behavior," even though it has almost nothing in common with actual stalking.
Wanna freak out the normals? Tell them you've been THINKING ABOUT THEM. It's a trespass to care about—or even maintain curiosity about—someone who doesn't care back.
But making it a "crush" makes it different, even if (as in the case of the Columbiners) the subject of your deliberations is a socially unacceptable mass murderer—'cause there are enough other girls doing the same thing to make a community. So you have someone you can FEEL things about, and you have people you can talk to about that. I can see where this would make some young girls very happy; it's like watching "Heathers" and crushing on a young, sociopathic Christian Slater, or watching "American Psycho" and crushing on psycho killer Christian Bale.
Well said. As they say on MetaFilter: .
