You’ve never heard of exploding casket syndrome (ask your mortician if it’s right for you), but funeral directors and cemetery operators have. They sell so-called “protective” or “sealer” caskets at a premium worth hundreds of dollars each, with the promise that they’ll keep out air and moisture that — they would have you believe — cause bodies to rapidly deteriorate. Like Tupperware for the dead, they “lock in the freshness!” with a rubber gasket.

But, in reality, you can’t protect a corpse from itself. While you’re insulating grandma from the outside air, she could be stewing in her own fluids, turning into a slurry from the work of anaerobic bacteria. When the weather turns warm, in some cases, that sealed casket becomes a pressure cooker and bursts from accumulated gases and fluids of the decomposing body. The next time relatives visit grandma, they could find her rotting remains oozing from her tomb in the form of a nauseating thick fluid.

Well that COMPLETELY exacerbates my horror at the whole modern American burial process. I just want to be stuck on a scaffold for the carrion eagles to pick at the old-fashioned way, thank you very much.

I bought a truck.

A diesel that smokes like a... uh... It smokes a lot.

I think I figured out why but I'm stuck at work and can't work on it and it's driving me crazy.

the funny thing is that, i'm pretty sure the reason that my truck is smoking is because it is retarded, literally

What kind of truck?

--Nigel, fapping.

'93 F250 Super Cab Long Box 7.3L IDI Diesel 5 speed manual.  Its seriously like 20 feet long. 

I advanced the timing a bunch and now it only smokes like a diesel is supposed to.

Niiice! I have a bit of a Ford truck fetish but it's generally localized to fifth and sixth generation.

Also, I strongly suspect that I am falling in love, which is a bit disquieting. But I finished off another term with a 4.0 and I'll be starting a new term again soon enough to hopefully head off having time for it to really go anywhere. Love is nothing but trouble.

Well if you don't fall in love with him, I will, and then what? Do you really want to see the world where "The Triangle" becomes the new "9/11"? Where 30 years after the event, people are still trying to clean bits of food-cart burrito and matted hair from the scorched remains of their once great institutions? 

I think you really just need to take one for the team here, Nigel.

Yeah but love is scary and I was drunk last night so my fear of commitment was rising to the surface.

My old home tops the list of safest places to drive...Boston bottoms:

Portland comes in the lower quarter (177 out of 200). I have contributed to that.

I've driven all the fuck over the western United States between the West Coast and Texas, and select patches of New England, and the only place I have ever been terrified for my life on the road was Boston.

It's only a small part of the shoot, there were nipples in part of it so I didn't post those.

I have an idea for another shoot I want to do, probably next weekend.

I've been merrily rolling through TDS (new) and TDS (closed), pissing people off, making friends, and ultimately siphoning the membership off into Pussy Shots, which hit 10,000 members today.

Also, I strongly suspect that I am falling in love, which is a bit disquieting. But I finished off another term with a 4.0 and I'll be starting a new term again soon enough to hopefully head off having time for it to really go anywhere. Love is nothing but trouble.

All I know is I keep trying to do all kinds of shit that no sensible person would do, given the odds.

That makes sense.

Oh, and fuck you jokenstein. I'll keep asking questions. Dickbag.

Junkenstein is right, and you are a shitfence. The end.

As a singer, I think it has potential as a song. I heard it as a commentary on border violence, interested in how it was meant.

I'm not sure I've heard a better musical interpretation of US global hegemony:

Lyrics here:

edited to add: any of the tracks on the album are topical if you remotely subscribe to the classical interpretations of Eris.

Yep, pretty much. This.

Goldman Sachs have a new advert campaign, which has been leaked 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ON-7v4qnHP8

Rumour has it this ad was inspired by actual conversations overheard in Lloyd Blankfein's office.

Is there really no anonymous confessions sub here? Somehow I never realized. There should really be one.
