    I once read a study about how tanning beds are more hazardous to one's health than arsenic.
    The only tanning I ever do these days is an occasional spray tan, after two precancerous moles at age 24 the sun is no longer my friend. That woman looks like leather! Being pale is awesome

    Hey, some of us like pale girls instead of tanned ones.

    And I like them mixed!!! by that I mean that I like girls who are not all tan, not tan girls and pale girls together. But girls who are not tanning in the nude necessarily, but....oh screw it. I'm not talking about this anymore.

    Women can be sure of a few constants in life: gravity. . . the rotation of the earth . . .the changing of the seasons. . . taxes. . . and somewhere, somehow, there is a man who will sleep with them.

    Men just will. That will never change. We are not that discerning.

    If a guy becomes more desperate, women around him will become more attractive. Alcohol helps too.

    ugh.
    An urban planner? With a Subaru? That you modded to stage 2? Very nice

    If you've gone down that road, then you're aware that it's pretty easy to get to the turbocharger. I hope that it is just those pipes, since it would then be a fairly easy and quick repair. Bummer about the guardrail though.. is it one of those "it'll buff out" moments?

    I thought about posting this as a new Caption Contest thread, but I think it just too obvious.

    Pretty sure he just got off with a warning.

    You also know the trooper's reaction when he walked up besides that truck was, "what have I done"

    Two phrases I would like to introduce into the popular lexicon are:
    "surrounded by tiki torches" and
    "having a Midol moment"

    Feel free to make use of either as you see fit.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I will try to put one or both in my staff reports this afternoon.

    I'm all about supporting the popular lexicon (you and my linguistics major friend McBride are the only two people I know who use the word "lexicon" with any frequency...)

    He and I also use the term "obnoxicon", for my tendency to speak in pop-culture references and quotations.

    Man it's been slow around these forums the past few months. At least it seems to me.

    I've thought the same thing...


    I was able to use 'surrounded by tiki torches' in a conversation about a used car lot which planted palm trees onsite.
