Aneristic Illusions / Re: Utah can't into filters on porn searches

It's actually pretty progressive tbh. Porn is a health crisis because it has a lot if common themes that worm into your head. And effects how you sex and treat people.

But I mean. Instead of declaring it a crisis I'd just fund some of the making love tasteful porn. Or you know. Tell people that porn is an industry that caters to anything so see the subliminal messages in each genera and choose your poison

And as always fuck pedos.

Leaving the pedos aside, obviously, there is no argument for criminalization of porn involving consenting adults. 

I feel that porn of ANY kind is the commidification of human beings and therefore immoral, but for one reason or another, my morals are not binding on other human beings.

That was another thing the governor said, and I am in agreement with you both.

Did not read the bill, but the article says the bill is mostly about who is now obligated to report child porn.  Which is not nearly as batty as I was expecting.

"That was a lovely camer move, Jim!"  "Thank you!"

With regard to threadsplit, meh.  Have at it.

Also, today I learned from a customer that the governor of Tennessee VETOED THE BIBLE!

I thought he just vetoed a bill to make the Bible the official state book of Tennessee, but the customer corrected me, and I understand now that the governor did, in fact veto the Bible.

I actually said out loud "What the shit?" when I read this.  I do not understand your people.

However, think of this test as designed by a Hoover Institute academic to paint everyone as "out of touch rich coastal elitists who listen to fancy music and watch documentaries on Netflix" except REAL MURICANS who vote Republican while drinking cheap beer, driving their pickup truck around.

-snort-  That's basically it.

So, not directly related to this particular test, but on the subject of bubbles: went to see Midnight Special (which I highly recommend) with The Man From Texas and I had to ask him afterwards about when the movie is supposed to be set, because look at all these landlines and old CRT TVs, but they're saying dates like 2011. He had to explain to me that in the poor-but-not-Hunger-Games-poor parts of the south this is still completely normal. Of course, this was news to me because where I live poor-but-not-starving folks have garbage cellphones and itty bitty HD sets or no TV at all.

You mean those TVs that have a rounded screen and have that high pitched buzz?  I got one of those.


3 seems like it defines poor. 


3 does define poor, but you get penalized if you, essentially, MADE yourself poor by getting edumacated, or got a little edumacated and couldn't find a job, thus being unable to pay bills that let you live on your own.  Because that kind of poverty doesn't count.  Because reasons.

However, I don't think this is about "penalties", and I don't think it's about the "kind" of poor one happens to be.  Even if you've gone to college and made yourself poor that way, you're still going to experience the world as someone who can't pay their bills and perhaps drink cheap beer, regardless of "reasons".

Well, yes.  I might be interpreting things incorrectly, but "Have you ever lived in poverty, being in massive debt after grad school doesn't count and neither does living with your family after college" strikes me as "You're not REALLY poor." And that, among other questions and explanation of questions that exhibit a certain bias that I can't put my finger on to name, is what I take issue with. 

Really, I guess at this point I'm just bitching since the subject doesn't seem to be interesting and it feels better to vent.

Did Kurt Russel really say that?  That's upsetting.

I remember when that was just a silly video on Youtube.

That they managed to turn it into that level of a production - and get Shia LaBeuof himself into it - was nothing short of amazing.

Right?  So awesome.

All of that up there.  ^^^^

This is the most amazing thing I've seen in months.

Right, so today weíre going to talk about pasta...of the evening.  Thatís rightóPASTA PUTTANESCA!  Itís fast!  Itís cheap!  Itís easy!  Itís boozy!  Itís comforting after a shitty goddamn day!  Letís all gather round and make some goddamn pasta puttanesca.

To begin with, find a mortar and pestle.  Or a cutting board and a meat tenderizer.  Also find some ingredientsógarlic, cherry tomatoes, anchovies (YES GODDAMMIT!), olives, and capers.  Stick a heavy skillet on very low heat and give it a few serious glugs of olive oil.  Peel the garlic, drop it into your mortar, and start smashing.  Crush it real good, like itís responsible for all of the bad things that happen to you.  Then throw it in the olive oil and let it sit.  Cut the tomatoes in half and throw them in with the garlic.  Then smash the rest of the ingredients and add them to the party.  Turn up the heat until the liquid pooling in the bottom of the pan starts to simmer angrily, then toss in some FUCKINí GHOST CHILIES!  Or some red pepper flakes.  Yíknow.  Thatís okay too, I guess.  Leave it at a low simmer until the tomatoes are mostly broken down and the pan is basically saucy.  The anchovies will melt and magically make everything justÖbetter.  But not fishy.  Itís a mystery.  Deglaze the pan with a healthy pour of wine.  Let it simmer down again.
   
Drain the pasta that Iím sure has just finished cooking to be a little underdone.  I like spaghetti.  Find what you like.  Throw it in the sauce, tear up some fresh basil, and mix it all together.  Let the pasta finish cooking in the sauce.  Mix it up again, dump onto a plate, top with more fresh basil and grated cheese and serve with crusty garlic bread and the rest of the wine.
   
Note: My audience for this meal has suggested that even though she ďdoesnít like shrimp,Ē shrimp would go well with this.  This will be an entry in the future because that can only end well for me.

I was hearing this in the style of a BRAWNDO commericial.

So.  Wasabi jello.

They said I was mad.

That sounds facsinating.  And awful.
