My friend found a video somewhere. It's called "Anal Massage for Health and Pleasure", and it's from the 80's. It features people from the 80's doing stuff to each other's butts.

Right on the cover, it says that Chester Mainard has over 20 years of experience teaching anal massage, and also that the video contains over two and a half hours of hands-on instruction.

Seriously, I tried to find this video on the internet. It's amazing! I'm going to scan the cover when I get a chance. Holy shit.

I did find this snippet of Chester Mainard talking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzDcou5il-A

We are entering an era where “way of life” music genres (genres which stand oppositional to other genres) are rapidly losing their hold over consumers’ aesthetic choices. A love of heavy metal does not now preclude a love of gay disco, just as a love of jazz doesn’t preclude a love of rock anymore. However, to an older generation to whom these walls still stand, it can seem as though the only explanation for the liking of oppositional genres is “irony”, when this is not the case.

The Oregonian's coverage of yesterday's Red & Black anarchist press conference includes this fantastic photo that can really be nothing but a publicity shot for Portland's newest hit indie-rockers.

How about a poor mom being robbed of her education, her, dreams, and her ability to secure a better future for her kids by a FELONY CONVICTION for using her father's address to send her kids to a better school?

I'd like to petition that all the subs be merged, because apparently we're really just looking to post our "serious content" in whichever sub gets the most views, so more people can see us and high-five our cleverness. That way, there will only be one sub so it will get ALL the views.

Also we should start being super-nice to n00bs and rename the remaining sub "23ae".

Thanks for your consideration.

Where was that thread? I got a couple of good links from a doctor friend today... one who is alt-medicine friendly but doesn't put up with bullshit. In my experience, these kinds of things are good against fundies, hippies, New Agers, AND Teabaggers.

I just looked on another board and saw this:

Anyone else see this post on facebook? I'm late with it and just saw it yesterday but the bizarre factor is rather big..

from fb
do you know the significance of 111 yesterday's date 1/11/11? Take your birth year (last 2 digits) + CURRENT AGE + 1 = 111. Try it!!!! It's true! (got it from a friend)

It's true..why is it true. anyone know?? What's even stranger is that my husband and I have numbers that mirror in this year 2011. His birth date is 1954 and he will be 57 this year, while my birth year is 1957 and I will be 54 this year..

Is that not BIZARRE..

I feel like I might cry.

I have a pet peeve. A conversation that I have heard far too many times over the years. It is based in the idea that if a language doesn't have a word for something, that the people don't have that concept.

OK, sometimes that's true. No automobiles? Never heard of 'em? Then there's not going to be a word for something nobody's ever thought of. We didn't have a word for "spaceship" until we came up with the idea of spaceships, and even then we just took two words, one for the vast mystery of what's "out there" and one for a vessel that floats on the water, and glommed them together.

So what's up with the mythologies of people so simple that they don't have a word for, say, rape? Or a name for the color orange? Or words for numbers more than three? Does that actually mean they don't have those CONCEPTS?

In most cases, no; that's not what that means. Sure, in the case of equatorial people, they probably couldn't describe snow, but for many such words, the concept exists and can be described. So, Western civilization didn't call the color orange "orange" until the 16th century; they called it yellow-red. Does that mean that they didn't see orange? That they didn't know what it was? Fuck no. That's stupid. They saw the color as clearly as we see yellow-green before we know it's called chartreuse. And then someone comes along and says "That color's called chartreuse" and we go "Oh, cool."

Societies without a word for "rape" may call it, in their language, "assault and forced sexual penetration". People who don't have a word for nine may call it "Three threes". Sort of like we didn't really have a word for thirteen... we just combined three and ten. Does that mean we couldn't count above twelve? Or that we still can't?

My point here is that people need to examine their assumptions about language and concepts, and stop assuming that just because there appears to not be a word for something, that is by no means an indication that the concept doesn't exist or cannot be described. How many times in your life have you been thinking about something, and when you try to describe, say, a set of behaviors or assumptions to another person, they say "OH yeah, that's called "________".

And then you go "Oh cool, there's a word for that!"
