    I have a redneck aunt who owns her own tanning bed and wore big see-thru heels to my grandfather's funeral. :brick:

    I've (unfortunately) been to a couple of funerals in the last six months or so, and I've noticed the same thing. The sunglasses are the worst. It screams "look at me, I'm a tough guy in mourning, so I can't take off my shades to reveal my tough-guy eyes. No one can see such a badass show weakness."

    One weird thing I noticed at the last funeral I attended: A lot of the friends of the deceased were musicians and the sort of "counter culture" type. One might have expected that group to show up the least properly dressed, but, by and large, they made the most effort to put on their Sunday best. There were more suits and ties, per capita, among that group than among the clean-cut parents' friends who came to show support.


    I've read the same thing about long-term use. I wonder if it's just a cost-benefit thing for you.

    Either way, I'm glad you're using it. I don't use mine all the time, but I was shocked at how much I liked it when I started using it during colds and the like. I hope you get to feeling better.

    I am often surprised at how many people do, in fact, dress nicely and make an effort at funerals. I hate attending funerals with my mother because she gets pissed off at me for not crying and being stiff and awkward. :rolleyes: am I supposed to ball my eyes out and do fucking cartwheels?

    It might be time to let the girlfriend jump your bones Patrick. You're sounding rather pentup today.

    I'm actually pretty ok. I do feel the slightest tinge of horniness though. She might get lucky tonight. But, probably not.

    How about a funky hat to show people how you're so unique and a free spirit that celebrates the soul moving on? I'm thinking about it.

    what's wrong with sunglasses? people use them to hide their tears.

    i usually wear my yarmulke or sometimes also my j00 hat, but then again everyone else is wearing the same so it doesnt make me very unique at all really.


    its a funeral, someone just died, often someone people in attendance loved dearly. why hide your tears? ive cried at funerals and im not embarrassed in the least to be seen doing such.

    it seems the glasses just make it more annoying. everyone can tell the person is crying and they have to keep adjusting their glasses to wipe their eyes. doesnt seem to accomplish much. different strokes i guess.


    i have never seen booze at a funeral in my life. j00s are so boring.

    ^^^No booze at the funerals I've attended either. And no tears, I tend to be rather stoic.

    I'm getting hot flashes.

    As a follow-up I just googled this and apparently men who are castrated get hot flashes. Now we know what my problem is...
