maj, I now officially yield this misbegotten thread to you and your cgi (as if I had a choice). I hope you've got plenty of surplus bandwidth, because in a few hours, EVERYBODY'S going to do it. In fact, I am going to STFU and let Genefilter:wendell do all my future comments for me:

Don't mean to be ashamed of... Stealth Disco. Disturbing underground movement or merely some guy who played Captain Kirk, said Tom in a coalition with America's Middle East allies. Bush wasn't interested. He waved his hand dismissively, recalls a participant, and neatly summed up his mind. I'm NOT criticizing Cam; he was one of her (which was pre-sitcom). Also, the Bad Sitcom Experience Syndrome (BSES) affects different people in different ways; Ms. Cho has had sex with a fear of Kenny Loggins? (music on front page some may consider annoying... someday I will not give up their Big Lies unless forced to, and true defenders of Freedom of Speech know that you can enfold your favorite dead rock star in the kicking ass debate. In my college edjukayshun. On my top ten list of people at the age of seven, I was definitely NOT The Onion). Not bad. 90-plus posts and a half... Most of my credit card and medical debts. In other words, Satan really IS behind it. Pear pimples for hairy fishnuts!!!! This is not a pretentious designer in sight? Come on, is our popular culture so anti-feminist that we have to lay-off some of the two...

I see q-ball has beaten me to it. As usual.

specialk420, I have to say, you haven't been paying attention. Sure, I
haven't. But this is the coolest thing you've seen, I have to be
addressed. If I had to pay for this very website - and I wouldn't feel
even the slightest bit guilty about doing that either. Would you? No.
But you and matteo are still skirting the issue: if you discriminate
between rewarding people who are bad, you can use money to people that
we support. interrobang - a better analogy to what I'm suggesting would
be chemotherapy. It's unpleasant for the entire country want to destroy
the United States? We're their biggest customer! Hustler !=
garden-variety porn. We're talking about RIAA-shills Metallica here.
Were talking about women being raped on pool tables and put through
meat grinders. You don't have to say, you haven't been paying
attention. Sure, I haven't. But this is the marketplace, and you
thought that her statement that rose is a direct correlation between
artists eating and artists talking. Very mysterious! The people of the
weirdest things about metafilter. The place is full of liberals,
atheists and Jack Vance fans - and I'm of the woodworks to brag about
how much...

P.S. As a certificate of honorary gayness, twas only the day before yesterday I started throwing whole Fijian vanilla pods - with the little black grains scraped into it, of course - into otherwise innocent bottles of Wyborowa vodka. You have no idea, judging by the unforgivable behaviour of my guests last night, how popular this little infusion has proved. I'd previously tried the usual suspects: malagueta and piri-piri peppers; autumn lemon, raspberries, blackberries and coriander seeds. Too intense and sectarian... Vanilla, on the other hand, is unarguable bliss!

this bias doesn't occur? Bias is not interesting, Mr Thompson. It could
only be explained from the Metafilter pilot yet. Casting for the day

such a velocity would tear a man's genitals off. Perhaps some sort of
detachment, is that a lot. Sorry, by the lord. Oh yeah. I quite liked
the linked article, myself. And UncleFes is a virus. Besides, Tarantino
is a little mildly put. The situation, any situation, always changes
rapidly in Korea, Cheju-do (Cheju island) is famous for this. The pigs
ate the poop. The people ate the poop. The people pooped into holes
above the pigs. The pigs ate the pigs. The pigs ate the pigs. The
people pooped some more. And so on. Ah, the timeless beauty of it all.
