All I ate last night was those raw oysters and starburst. I had 2 really bad nightmares and woke up both times with a racing heart, so apparently thats not a good combination. I felt sick, but never yacked.

My dad eats oysters when he is drunk. I think oysters are about as close to semen as acceptable food gets.

Oyster Rockefeller is amazing, but I don't think I could do them raw.

Dear Parking Dude:

I know that you don't make much money working as a surface parking lot attendent (perhaps you were even homeless/on meth), but given that you look at least a few years younger than me I expect better behavior. Next time don't flag me down on the sidewalk as I am leaving work just so that you can ask me if I'm going to finish my cold, black, Starbucks coffee. I could understand such behavior from a senile Great Depression or senile WWII survivor, but not from someone who looks like they were born in the late 1980s or early 90s. Plus, it's generally not good hygine to flag down a random guy on the street and ask to finish his cup of coffee. Despite it all, I probably would have given you my half-empty coffee cup if I thought it would give you some nutrition, but alas, black coffee has no calories and is acidic enough to make hunger worse.

P.S. You did not look too bad. If you grew a beard and were willing to move to Ontario, there may be a guy there with a hair fetish that will gladly make you fresh coffee - with cream and sugar - in return for certain, verboten, services.

Sincerly,

The black dude who did not give you his coffee.

Or snot. Semen-y snot.

My problem is with the big healthy west coast oysters that you have to bite into, then chew to get down. THAT makes me gag. It shouldn't take two bites at an oyster.

Give me those shriveled east coast oysters. Or better yet those bacteria-y gulf oysters in July on a hot bar top in New Orleans.

I punched myself in the face while boxing today.

That is to say, while putting stuff into boxes and stacking those boxes on pallets, one handle on the box broke. I compensated by pulling up on the other handle harder but that one broke too, and my arm flew back and hit me right on the nose.

If any of my coworkers find this post they'll be in for a pretty unexpected surprise. Hey guys! I work with 16 men and I don't find a single one attractive. Go figure.

I refer to people like that as "nice from afar, but far from nice". That is, from a distance, they appear like they might be attractive, but then you get closer to them and realize that they're too flawed, be it mentally, hygienically, or facially. I once saw a vagrant whose BO was so strong that I could smell it even though I was upwind of him on a very windy day. He looked hot but I imagine it would be like fucking a hairy piece of blue cheese. It has to be subtle, not pungent.

It's against my beliefs to eat anything from the ocean that isn't a fish with scales, so I guess I'm covered.

I believe it is improper to eat anything that comes from the hydrosphere. There is a reason they're in there people!!!!!!

And that reason is so that Discovery can make money with Deadliest Catch.

Seafood is amazing, regardless of where it comes from.

I stopped reading that long ago.

But, but.. The Constitution says...

I think I read "constitution" and/or "amendment" half a dozen times in one post.

The amount of conversations in the US that go down that road still baffles me after 4.5 years on this site.

I don't have permission to view that page because I told Rotnart that the Nailizarb government wasn't fucking people off, it was fucking them over.

It's about America's gun culture, and it's been going on forever.
