1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Except that the expression is very often employed as a way to naturalize a situation and thus avoid looking at potential contributing factors and possible alternative options. In other words it is almost never immutably what it is.

    You presuppose that there are alternative options and that there is more to do than to cope. Naturalizing a situation and not looking further at the matter is precisely what the world needs much of the time. I find the assumption that there is hope for "progress" to be perhaps the most corrosive and destructive contributions of western, modern, liberalism.

    moar, better =/ progress
    failed political schemes for progress =/ progress is a bad goal
    seeking progress =/ malcontent.

    Yeah my biker is size 54 and I'm normally a size 50. I also wear 54 in a1923. Both just fit weird. The downside to m.a.+ is the sleeves are extra long so 54 sleeve length hurts and I wouldn't want to mess with the sleeves especially with the spiral zips.

    You may be a bit bigger than me. It's just that one jacket in that one leather. Everyhing else, every other leather, it's a 52.

    Also, I have a good long reach, and the sleeve length on the 54, while long, isn't overly long. The sleeves end halfway between the base of the thumb and the palm on me, so, no need for adjustment there.

    Maybe I should get a CCP grey scarstitch instead. Those are pretty cool.

    I dunno what twitter you are reading, but his stuff is nearly completely like that.

    For example, this is something one of my meathead friends would say, and is one of his tweets:
    Sometimes we care about the faces we make... and sometimes we're fresh out of f*cks to give.… http://instagram.com/p/yPmyBGoh35/

    Or this:
    Howlin' at this moon again. AM cardio starts now.. good morning.. #MoonsStillOut #LilNipplyOutHere

    Or of course, this:
    Intimidated? Nah. #ExceptAroundBrownies #AndAWoman #AndYetIDevourBoth

    I mean, I don't mean anything negative by it. I hang out with a lot of these guys, and it's refreshing. There's no mincing, there is essentially zero sense of irony, and what irony there is is the obvious, meathead, kind "I had my cheat meal yesterday, and now there are brownies. #IRONY"

    I never said any of those things.

    I just think that there is a price for everything, and the not nearly enough consideration is taken to think of what that price might be, and how truly dire, or worse, things can get.

    Yeah I'm definitely a little bigger in the torso. The 54 m.a.+ is a little tight. Size 50 CCP is tight if I've been eating heavily lately... probably would fit you perfectly. Grey scarstitch would be awesome. Especially if its that pale grey he does. Or you could go the nicelynice route and aim for a white scarstitch.

    I'm probably going the light grey or white for the high neck I'll get at some point.

    Also CCP construction is farrrrr nicer. Outside of his footwear, his clothing construction has not particularly impressed me. MetroBulutDodo once commented to me that she too felt it was as if put together by a child.

    Man, I want a CCP high neck. Feels like wearing Guyver. Do they really come in white?
