As a straight man I'm very happy you used lingerie models to illustrate your point where you could've easily used the troops. Thanks for your support!
@erikonymous "It's my hope that some indie stores still cater to the cult film crowds and survive on renting DVDs that Netflix still doesn't stock, but I admit that may be a pipe dream."
Facets in Chicago and Videology here in Brooklyn are surviving on a simple idea of combining the rental store with a big screen (although in Videology's case, the fully stocked bar plays a bigger part, but still).
@scrooge "Perplexed, though, why you should care who your ex was dating, if she was your ex."
You just failed the Turing test.
@bg In that it makes global warming deniers look like dangerous idiots in a language idiots may understand.
"What's the etiquette there?"
Just stay away from the subway, weirdo.
@Matthew Lawrence Likewise, reading this comment of yours is the thing I hate the most about having the shoe size of 9.5
"Like most guys our age (seriously, it's fucking infuriating), he's commitmentphobic"
For what it's worth let me just point out that "commitment" is worthless. You want the guy to be with you because he loves you, not because he "committed to you". I think this "commitment" thing is all the rage among people who've somehow concluded they can't be loved and thus they demand some sort of a contract that would guarantee them the satisfactions of a relationship where those satisfactions wouldn't be granted to them spontaneously and naturally - out of love. That "commitment" thing is hard to get because it's total bullshit and doesn't exist (and no, marriage isn't it, people get divorced just as resolutely as they get married). So don't be upset about not being able to get it, you are only making yourself less ready for real love.
So this shows how much we consider ourselves to be part of our virtual reality more than of the actual reality. Even when someone is shooting at us, it's not real to us until we verify it on our phones. We will tell our Twitter followers the bullets are coming, but not to the person standing next to us.
I don't think that's just because we are too polite. I think it's because we are insane.
"That slowed him down, but it actually didn’t stop him."
He's got places to be, he's got no time to not get killed!
Reminds me of what someone who ran out of WTC in time said on the issue of why (supposedly, I'm not sure that it's actually true) proportionally more of the blue collar people managed to get away by dropping everything and running as soon as they heard what was happening: "white people don't think anything bad can happen to them".
There's a reason they make a lot of New York movies in Toronto: it's just like New York!
Only without all the places and the people, so you don't have to bother with closing the shops and clearing the streets.
