I had a similar problem, a cyst in my testicles that got infected and swollen. It was painful, but not cripplingly so; certainly not enough to put me off sex. If he managed to wait six weeks before going to the doctor, I can't imagine it was much worse than what I was feeling. The guy is making excuses.

Wow. I love the attitude of, "We have no solutions, only demands". Stellar work people, you'll really stick it to the man that way. Yeeeeah.

@13 I think the question of "green or purple" skin would be quite relevant in the context of a sci-fi convention, don't you?

"This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand."

Because there's no chance that you might see an actual, real-life gay couple at Toys R Us, right "Mom"? Honestly, I think these women's heads might explode if they saw "the gays" in person...

"'O, be respectable, write about nice people, show how good we are,' say the Negroes. 'Be stereotyped, don’t go too far, don’t shatter our illusions about you, don’t amuse us too seriously. We will pay you,' say the whites. Both would have told Jean Toomer not to write Cane. The colored people did not praise it. The white people did not buy it. Most of the colored people who did read Cane hate it. They are afraid of it." - Langston Hughes

If it's that big of a deal for her, she should just woman-up and break up with him. There's a ton of background stuff we don't know about this situation, but when it comes down to it, she's just asking for permission to cheat, and that isn't cool.

Ummm.. Am I really the only person to notice that Super Grover is *not* Elmo's alter-ego, but Grover's? Gods, I feel old...

“If conditions were right, we could stay here in the long-term,” Neel says. “With teepees and yurts, we could live here throughout the winter.”

And if conditions were right, we probably wouldn't need to be having these protests in the first damn place. Seriously, how blindingly obvious and meaningless is this statement?
Oct 10, 2011 Frankie23 commented on Seattle's "Superhero" Unmasked.
Is he fighting crime alongside the Juggalo, or was he just in the fray.

And seriously, people actually dress up like Juggalos on a day-to-day basis? Gods, that's terrifying...
