You couldn't find anything? Bill Murray? Mr Rogers? Doctor Strangelove? Not even Siouxie Sioux?

Nah, it's a sports thing. Used in tournaments, the winner of the matchup advances to compete against other winners, etc.

The joke here's that the things "competing" are only related by similar sounding names and/or pop culture references, and "better" is completely subjective.

I can't find shit on the right that's worth a damn.  It comes down to Eugene Debs vs Thunderdome.  And we know how THAT would end.

It really does work well. I've walked into many site cabins with a couple of bags of ice and a fan in warm summers and been treated like jesus.

See, LuciferX?  This is actually useful advice.

Admittedly, I'll have to find some containers for said ice, and use my bedside table to place the ice on, but it doesn't involve hosing down a building of 200+ people, that I don't own.

Wondering how I slept through a full blown gunfight in the neighborhood last night. My cup runneth over, really.

I heard that's what they use instead of bird songs at 82nd & Beach.

This has shaped up excellently. Feels like a 7 parter? Or Ongoing?

7-8, depending on how much time I have available.  I find myself in the horrible predicament of having to do a job I am planning on fucking off from, for reasons to ticklish to tell in the amount of time I have while not doing said work.

I need a crowbar.

Just a small compilation for the lulz

1: I hate to say it, though it is abundantly clear, monogamy remains the path of least resistance to developing meaningful relationships.

2: Yea, I'm cool with a split too, however, the bolded is false beyond what you can conceive, Mnkay? :roll:

3: Really, honey, I think monogamy admits to more than that to which you or I may realize.

4: Right on.  The condescension is only proportional to the extent that you may have denigrated my understanding of the subject.

5: I tend to celebrate difference, and yes, that makes me quite alone.  For one, because monogamy admits the victory of love over any imaginary division we so delicately contrive.

6. Fine, I think we're ready for that ridiculously over-consumed punch-line:  given how I'm not yet equipped to do better, the best I can be is a serial monogamist.  That is not to say polyamory beats swinging, I just want to figure how holy a threesome needs to be in order to count for either, or, how fast can I switch between partners before I no longer qualify for monogamy.  But there I go, lowering the bar again, right?  Just say the word and I'm out.

Conclusion: I think its trying to communicate, what should we do?

Literate Chaotic / Re: Excerpts from the Next Great American Novel

Enjoyable!

Just one comment... in one paragraph you say that the currency glands were designed to prevent people from saving currency, and that the fluid doesn't keep outside of the sacs. But you conclude it by saying that Vinny is saving for a third currency gland. What is he saving?

Err, nothing, surely?

He's saving for the gland, right? Which means he will have to pay for it. Are you suggesting that such an economy would not thrive on, nay require, advance payment?

Imagine a culture where loan sharks charge you in advance for the loan. It's not as far away as we would realistically like to pretend.

So, this finished.

Somewhat ambivalent about the end. Probably due to the "more in a year" bullshit.
