hungover is the only way to fly.
i know i'm preaching to the choir here, but wooow don't read the comments on the MSNBC article. an astounding display of cognitive dissonance with people saying that she selfishly aborted the child as a form of birth control/for her own convenience, and at the same time saying that the parents are poor and uneducated and already have 3 kids and where do they get off thinking they should have another?
@PrimordialToothpaste is this actually important? i cook with lentils a lot and have sorted them approximately zero times. i pull out ugly-lookin things when i see them.
On Which Name Is Weirder, Saxby Chambliss or Barkevious Mingo? The Answer May Tell You Whether or Not You're Racist
@OhMarie combining mothers' and fathers' names is common among my peoples, too (puerto rican). juan + maria = jumari, carmen + luis = caris, etc.
On Frosting or Icing? Firefly or "Peenie Wallie"? Brew-Thru, Beverage Barn, or "I Have Never Heard of This Concept"?
As an Army brat, I enjoyed punking this quiz. I grew up all over the southeast and midwest, with some years in Puerto Rico (my dad is from PR and my mom from Virginia). My results are nonsensical: top cities are Boston, Newark, and Fort Lauderdale--never lived near any of them. My least similar cities are Flint, Akron, Toledo, and Cincinnati...and I actually lived in Cincinnati for 3 years. I guess I'm a contrarian.
@Li'l Sebastian yeah those studies are relevant to public health policy debates but not really personal safety decisions. i didn't mean to call YOU snooty, either, i've just heard those arguments from too many snooty folks.
@TheDragon lol everyone i am a girl and in a long term relationship with a guy who wears a helmet. i'm just saying, no helmet wearing is a risky behavior i couldn't tolerate in a partner because i wouln't be able to deal with the repercussions if something went wrong...surely everyone has standards like these (won't date smokers, stuntmen, whatever)
@Slutface JUST SAYIN
also, if you do not wear helmets, i will not date you. sry. too stressful for me.
@Li'l Sebastian yeah bike advocates always snootily tell me about these studies, of which i am already aware, and i still wear a helmet. "the net health impacts are more positive if we were to get more people to bike than to get more people to wear helmets," they say. ok. well, i am not a person who is deterred from biking by wearing a helmet. is it going to make me LESS SAFE to wear a helmet? no? then i'm gonna wear it. and i think we can advocate for more bike riding AND try to get rid of the uncool stigma around helmets at the same time. i've been in an accident (hit by a bus) that cracked my helmet but my head is fine...these studies aren't gonna convince me of shit on a personal level.
