    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.

    I wonder if the wife would be upset at the fact the husband cheated vs. engaged in incest. I know both, probably, but I'm curious whether he would be labeled a "cheater".

    I have represented many clients who had sexual relations with their children. The wives were always more upset at the incest/rape than the cheating.

    Heston blumenthal did a show on this.

    Got a recommendation about always ordering special food, as its better than the regular food.

    Interesting. I am thinking of a more consensual sexing though. No rape involved. Like a hot dad and a hot daughter with the hots for each other's sexy parts.

    They still serve food on airplanes? Last time I flew business class, all I got were some warm nuts, which had a fancy feel but IMHO were not as good as some southwest honey roasted peanuts (god forbid you are on a southwest flight were they only have plain peanuts).

    Actually, the last time I got real food on a plane was some sort of Delta commuter flight from ORD to JFK that gave you a bagel with multiple spread options. Also, the food I have had on SAS flights is fantastic.

    Starfighters don't need to be aerodynamic...duh

    Incest can't be consensual in most jurisdictions, and if the hot daughter is under 18 it's still statutory.

    Incest can't be consensual between two adults? That's wack.

    Depends on the jurisdiction but generally no.

    Edit - or I should say, if both are adults and are siblings it is likely they will both be charged. If it's parent on child incest then usually it's just the parent that is charged.

    Further edit - see for example



    "ยง 4302. Incest.
    A person is guilty of incest, a felony of the second degree,
    if that person knowingly marries or cohabits or has sexual
    intercourse with an ancestor or descendant, a brother or sister
    of the whole or half blood or an uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of
    the whole blood. The relationships referred to in this section
    include blood relationships without regard to legitimacy, and
    relationship of parent and child by adoption."

    It's very rare to have the child, even an adult child, charged with incest with a parent. At least 'round these parts.

    So lame. Who do I write a letter to to get that changed? So, basically having sex with your 18 year old daughter can get you thrown in state prison?

    Really? That's weird. In texas adult incest is a felony, but it's not rape.

    Adult incest is just incest. I put the incest/rape thing there because I wasn't sure at that time if pB was speaking of adults or minors.


    What I posted is indicative of PA law, but I'm fairly confident it's the same in En Why state so you should contact your local state congress people.

    Yes.

    what's with the vegans treating coconut butter/oil/manna as the a super healthy alternative to regular oils? A single tablespoon is more than HALF of your daily recommended value of saturated fat. I do like the way it tastes, but not in place of actual butter.

    I think because it has other supposed benefits. It makes you poop good being one. Also, it acts as a kind of antiseptic on your body. Kills a lot of germs and so it. I rub the shit on my face after I shave.

    My issue with it is that it doesn't have that high of a smoke point, so I find it useless for a lot of things that require a hot pan. I use macadamia nut oil for most cooking. It is expensive as fuck though.

    Coconuts come from areas where the indigenous people are not northern European or descended from them. I find vegans tend to find wisdom, strength, and meaning in most anything food related that have origins in such places.

    i've heard a heap load of "other supposed benefits", but none seem substantiated.

    There is so much conflicting science when it comes to food and nutrients. Almost not worth looking into all that much.
