Take a shower. Start out with cooler water, for immediate relief. Gradually increase the water temperature to hot, for comparative comfort when you're done.

This Pride weekend is gonna be hard to top...
May 18, 2015 Ben commented on SL Letter of the Day: Squirt Toys Incorporated.
The bigger concern in my mind is matter of back-flow. Female ejaculate going into LW's ass probably poses a minimal risk, true. The contents of LW's ass moving in the other direction? Much more of a concern.
Jan 29, 2015 Ben commented on Savage Sitcom Sells to ABC.
@34: I may be wrong, but single-camera generally implies a tighter, more edited and polished production, while multi-camera is looser and less edited. Multi-camera is more likely to have a studio audience, single-camera is more likely to have no laugh track. Multi is faster to produce, but requires compromises in production.

Beyond literally what camera setup they're actually using, it generally implies a difference in style or approach. Think 30 Rock or Better Off Ted versus Everybody Loves Raymod or Cheers.
Jan 22, 2015 Ben commented on I Couldn’t Be Happier About the Patriots' Illegally Deflated Balls.
Pats fans may be objectively more insufferable than Seahawks fans, but they're all the way at the other end of I-90. I don't have to deal with them every day, at work, on the bus, out in public. And on the off chance I do actually see a Patriots fan, odds are about a thousand times lower that they'll give me shit for wearing Vikings colors. Seahawks fans think they're rivals with everyone.
Dec 11, 2014 Ben commented on City to Crack Down on Pot-Delivery Services and Consider New Rules for Dispensaries.
Marijuana delivery seems like the ideal to me. "Oh no, we don't want pot shop storefronts near our churches or schools or whatever." Okay, so let people open delivery-only businesses; no storefront needed. The pot buyers are happier because they get their pot without driving across town, the pearl-clutchers are happier because they can pretend pot doesn't exist. I really don't see the downside.
Sep 23, 2014 Ben commented on We Asked 12 People at Fremont Oktoberfest: Who's Your Favorite German?.
Fffffffff I would happily, eagerly, ebulliently provide whatever amount of unreciprocated oral sex that aerospace engineer fancied in exchange for being lectured to about orbital mechanics or whatever. Jesus of fucking Christtown that is probably the sexiest thing I have ever seen/heard of in my life.
Jul 17, 2014 Ben commented on Russia Accused of Shooting Down Malaysian Passenger Plane in Ukraine, Killing Nearly 300 People.
@22: If Ukraine were proven correct, that the plane was shot down by Russian air-defense missile systems, would it still be incredibly irresponsible journalism to say that this is not a Ukrainian civil war?

Because that's what Mr. Kiley actually, you know, said. "If this, then that."
Jun 18, 2014 Ben commented on Amazon Announced the Fire Phone Today: What Do You Think?.
Recognize songs? Read barcodes? Gosh! What other features of my three-year-old WP7 phone does it have?
Jun 13, 2014 Ben commented on CNN Says It's Not Officially a School Shooting If You Have a Reason to Shoot Someone.
If you're mad at someone in particular and you shoot that person, your gun violence doesn't count as much as a person who walks into a school and starts shooting indiscriminately in the count of incidences of people walking into schools and shooting indiscriminately.

15 is already too many. You don't need to start counting anything involving a gun at a school, or near a school, or in the same town as a school, or involving someone who once went to a school. Inflating the numbers is disingenuous and doesn't do anyone any good.
