SIGNORA SAYS TO ME, SHE SAYS "EY, FUCKPIG. HOW YOU WANT TO GET NAILED?"
ME, OF COURSE, I COME RUNNING IN, WIDE WIDE GRIN.
BAM. NAIL STRAIGHT THROUGH FOOT. CAR KEYS STOLEN FROM POCKET.
NO MIGUELS COME TO MY AID EVEN AS I SHOUT "MIGUEL".
OUT OF MIGUELS AGAIN. PERHAPS SHE HAS GONE TO GET MORE?
I have a young friend who has been all dramatic and moany lately about how hard it is to date when you're kinky, and how will she ever find a kinky boyfriend, blah blah blah. I'm like, how about you start by finding a guy you LIKE?
She discovered bondage six months ago. That's it. Bondage. It's not like she has some weird specialized fetish that's hard to get people to indulge. It's not even anything I think most people other than the most straightlaced would consider kinky, any more than spanking or cross-dressing or threesomes.
I am starting to think that for some people, their kink is thinking of themselves as kinky.
Junkenstein, this might be helpful... I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but given that the annual rate for all gun injuries in the US is around 100,000 http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/16/16547690-just-the-facts-gun-violence-in-america?lite, 65-ish is a very low proportion.

While "school shootings" are certainly the flavor of the moment, I'm not convinced their heavy presence in the media is anything other than a political fulcrum.
Oh my god you've got one of those geodesic thingamawhatsits in your backyard! I loved that shit when I was a kid.
Little Orange toned her perfect abs on that thing. She's mostly moved on to scaling the apricot tree now, though, so I think it's about time to pass it on to my best friend who's kid is about to turn one.
One more tiny step toward convincing white Americans that American indians are actual people.
Doubt it. This was a symbolic issue. The outrage machine, however justified in this case, doesnt deal in actual change, only in ratings. The problem most American Indians face isnt sports mascots, its crippling poverty, drug addiction and a lack of healthcare. Currently reservations have an infant mortality rate double that of the rest of America. You cant tweet a problem like that away, and more importantly, theres no bad guy to feel morally superior too. The media will move on to a new target and most of America will forget that Indians even exist.
I probably have a better understanding of the situation than you're assuming.
