Heh. "Go off grid" is the whacko Alex Jones audience version of "Moving to Canada" I guess. But then, this same crowd has been doing crazy shit like that ever since about the 1930s if not earlier. They've also stockpiled canned goods in their personal underground bunkers as well. Same shit really, different bunker.

Also kind of describes half (at least!) of the people who live in Backwoods Alaska.

@5: There's no reason to resort to Godwin's Law here. There are so many examples of this kind of thing in *America* that it would make your head spin.

"Let's pretend guns are as just as dangerous as lawn darts and ban the fucking things already."

Most epic Dan quote ever.

After "It gets better", of course.

@1:

Canada has such a law. There are lots of firearms that aren't allowed in civilian hands at all.

You know what our last "terrorist attack" looked like?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_shoot…

Guy runs into high-security building with an 8-round .30-30, gets killed. Body count: 2, including the shooter. This guy couldn't buy a gun to save his life (because we also have laws saying that people with a violent criminal record aren't allowed to buy guns or get a license to own them), so it was probably stolen. This was literally the best he could do: an outdated, lever-action rifle from the 1890s.

Nevermind the fact that this happened two years ago and that's what qualifies as "most recent", the entire incident is a demonstration of the stark difference between what happens when a crazy person shares his pain in a country with strict gun laws, vs one without them.

@30: I have to wonder if his superiors and peers ever caught on to *why* he was so enthusiastic about staking out the gay parks. ;)

PARK needs better advice:

Find a couple of gay or bi guys to get it on with who are enthusiastically consenting to being watched by you.

That's what my wife did. ;)

Oh god, HUH could have been writing about my sex life right now. My wife's going through some issues on top of being exhausted from work and the kids and such.

But you know what HUH? A couple of months ago, we got away on a vacation in Mexico without the kids. And holy fuck. She started her period about two days in, and we've barely ever had sex when that was going on (she's normally either squicked out about it, or the side effects turn her right off), but she was all "Fuck that noise, we're *FUCKING*! Damn the torpedoes, let's ruin some towels!" It's been a while since I saw her so enthusiastic for getting laid. A week with a complete lack of any responsibility whatsoever (and like Dan says, a significant amount of alcohol) was all she needed.

So yeah, that's proof plenty that the passion is still there, it's just been crushed by her overall exhaustion lately.

But I'd also have to admit that every once in a while, we still get away for some group sex action too. I highly recommend letting the kids "go camping" on grandpa's living room floor for a night or two every once in a while.

You know what's funny?

I wasn't sure what "demagogue" meant, so I went to merriam-webster.com to look it up. AND THERE IS LITERALLY A PICTURE OF DONALD TRUMP IN IT!
Apr 29 gromm commented on The Return of Youth Pastor Watch.
Don't forget! These are the guys that were actually *convicted*. Considering what rape statistics are like (about what, 20% of rape trials result in convictions? And the number of rapes grossly exceeds the number of charges), it's likely a vanishingly small fraction of the number of actual rapes by youth pastors.

If that thought doesn't make you throw up in your mouth, you have no soul.

Thanks Dan, this advice was spot on. Yes, size does matter, and it matters for different reasons to different people.

Personally, I like big dicks. There's a limit of course, but still, there it is I personally think that 8 or 9 inches is just perfect.. And I've been with people (women mostly) who think that my 7" is way too big for them. And I'm all like "Whaaa?" I've also been with women who think I'm exactly perfect for them (my wife included). Any longer or thicker, and she's just "no way, uh uh". She physically can't take my biggest sex toys, even vaginally.

So there you go people. More fuel for the debate.
