You guys have to come to weddings in Ohio.

The groom literally flipped the bride off and said she was a whore because, and get this, SHE HUGGED AND KISSED HER COUSIN AFTER THE CEREMONY (of course, not in a weird way at all, as the cousin was congratulating the bride).

I couldn't make this shit up if I tried. More details will come in the Ohio thread.

Ohio, man. My dad's from there, I have relatives from there. Relatives I prefer not to deal with pretty much ever. Last time I had them over there was a father-daughter fistfight in my back yard.

That's pretty fucking special.

Ha! That's hilarious! This reminds me that when my friend Primefactor and I were deep in the midst of constant moneymaking schemes, one of our schemes was writing highly specific fetish porn novellas to publish on Kindle. I can write good smut but am shit at plot and character development, and Primefactor is great at those things. So she would just send me pages of plotline that had highlighted holes in it that said "[porn]", and I would fill it in. If I had a good idea for some weird smut, I would write it out and send it to her with highlighted holes that said "[plot]". We didn't finish even one novella, but it was funny while it lasted.

After 10 years in this business I am finally saying goodbye to table humpers, arm fondlers, leg patters, and other assorted gross and creepy dudes.

I'm one month in my new lease at a chiro and going to very carefully run my 3rd Groupon and no more questions as to whether I offer "service to other areas". If this doesn't work, weed shops are aplenty in these parts and I have tons more sales/smoking experience than these hippies.

Good luck, man. You deserve a sainthood. After 9 years in the bodywork biz, I quit because I was sick of being broke. My second job morphed into my primary job and now I am trying to figure out what my next move is. Weed shop probably isnt my thing....at least not since I had my hair cut short. In my 20s my long hair was practically a sign that read "By all means, please approach me and ask for drugs".

Thanks! I am working my way to exit the business at the right time. I thought I would do this forever, but in the last few years have worn me down. I dream of working in an air conditioned lab where people don't fuck my shit up, or I get to yell at them regardless.

I find this a weird criticism of TNG. (Been rewatching them since they were added to netflix), while I agree that many episodes have the tech as a plot device to push the dramatic effect, the majority of the show is about exploration of various concepts from religion, politics, culture and history, to more complex themes about identity self image and sexuality with this blind optimism behind it.
Each episode follows a template format: a overarching story focusing on a member of the cast, this makes up the majority of the episode, and a ship wide threat which would fall into the technobabble category.

Science fiction is about exploring more then just technology, it would be very shallow if it did, and ironically those parts are the shallow part of the show.

In contrast, when looking at the later shows like voyager, the exploration of complex ideas takes a back seat and the body of the show is a drama set in space. I see his criticisms and would say that it is present in so much of science fiction on TV, but for the Next Gen I just dont see it.

I agree. I think I found that when I was looking into the writing process and how different people handle it. I think it's amusing, but love TNG, it was really well done and they worked hard on those stories. I even enjoyed Voyager, even though the technobabble is by far the worst compared with the rest of the franchise. They stick to their own vernacular REALLY HARD.

Yeah. Ohio sees family fistfights the same way Texas still sees Revolutions. You gotta have'em every once in a while or everything falls apart.

Which reminds me, the Father of the bride would've beat the shit out of the groom if he wasn't sitting on a few felonies, himself.

Have a good time.  Watch out for the Prude Ranch.

Alright, I've narrowed down my potential PhD research program to one of 8 proposals.  Like to get some thoughts:

Quote
1.  How did the National Socialist Underground go undetected for so long?  LE and intelligence implications in the wake of the NSU killings.

2.  The internationalisation of far-right terrorism in Europe

3.  How does far right terrorism and political parties and organisations interact?     Institutionalised cooperation or creation of a conducive environment and narrative (re: Paul Wilkinson’s study)?

4.  Shifts in public debate as a precursor to far-right violence?

5.  Does right wing terrorism have unique strategic characteristics that make it harder to detect and counter (terrorism versus hate crime, rhetoric mirrored by government etc)?

6.  Russia’s response to far-right militarism

7.  Comparing Germany’s far-right anti-immigration terrorism of the 1990s with today’s terrorism: similarities and differences.

8.  Cumulative terrorism?  Assessing the validity of the concept and associated risks.
