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.

    "blumpkin" is the word you're looking for.

    I do not understand the proclivity of people to decide that the best place to stop and do things, from cell phone calls to searching through your purse, is right smack in the middle of busy entrance ways. WTF people? Move your fat arse off to the side or at least out of the eff'ing doorway.

    i want to punch those people in the head. or when you are walking behind someone like that and they abruptly make a complete stop to get their phone. is it really that hard to get your phone and walk at the same time?

    Parents that allow their four year old precious flowers to help themselves in an unattended fashion at a buffet. Do you REALLY think it's "cute" your germ carrier just sneezed on all the sweet and sour pork? Do you REALLY think it's "okay" Chuckie pulled his finger out of his nose, picked up an eggroll, then put it back? Did you REALLY just get upset I told you your kid needed a real parent?

    This.... I have adapted a technique for crowded places, where I put my fist out in front of my face, people tend to move, when they see a fist coming towards their face :devil:

    That or I whistle so they look up and realises they are in the way.


    I can't imagine it has gotten better, try googling british night out, that is some disturbing shit.




    Have you guys seen the Football Hooligans International documentary WTF

    Agreed. The only reason I would find acceptable is that you have them completed but owe money. I'd hang on to that cheque until 4/15 too.

    Filing taxes is not always a good thing for people. Also, some companies take forever to send W-2's. I guess you can do it with your last paystub as well.

    People, that amazingly, think nothing of clipping their toenails in public.

    I'm amazed you go to buffets.


    My "thing I just don't get": people who drag their feet everywhere they walk. Are you that fucking incapable of lifting your lazy leg an extra three inches up so that you take normal strides like nondouchey humans?

    Yeah, gross, but the food at your run-of-the-mill buffet probably has more cooties growing in it than what the little kids add.
    You ever read a health inspector's report from a buffet?

    I'll never, ever, step foot in one again.

    I crossed buffets off the list after our son ate so much that he threw up in the parking lot. I kept stopping him, he kept sneaking food past me, and eventually I decided that experience should be his teacher. I chuckled while he moaned and groaned and eventually disgorged the contents of his stomach onto the pavement. His friend dared him to do it.

    Of course, it wasn't the buffet that was the issue: a year later we were at a going-away party for a friend's son who was joining the marines. Our son bolted down 7 plates of finger-foods. We left at the end of the night and - again - he vomited once we left their subdivision. We've since clamped down a lot harder on portion control.

    he fucking loves chicken wings. would eat them at every meal if given the choice. we sometimes use them as compliance tools (i.e. - have a good week, we go out for chicken wings). I detest them for a number of reasons, most notably how fucking hard it is to use a fork-and-knife to eat them.

    Apparently you're less likely to get audited if you file on the 15th.
