Meeting Larry Flint next month!!

The wife wanted to stop by our local misogyny emporium (aka Hustler Hollywood) again last night to cash in on her membership rewards. While we were browsing, one of the fine, er, exploited, young saleswomen who knows us from our many visits informed us that the bossman is scheduled for an in-store next month.... I think we`re going to pick up a copy of "The People vs. Larry Flint" and maybe his newest book and have him sign them. Should be a fun afternoon!

I`ve been watching entirely too much Gordon Ramsay lately...

all my snark has a decidedly British tint to it... at least it does in my head lol

Need to sell my car... 1974 BMW 2002.

Mostly restored/rebuilt. Previous owner put TONS of work into it. I have a file folder full of the work he had done, including complete interior, rebuilt engine with high performance camshaft, ignition, carbs etc. NADA lists at $9900 low, $14,000+ average. Looking to get $7500. Olympia, Washington area. PM for more info. Thanks.

Mariners! No-hit Dodgers in a combined effort.

Millwood left the game early with a pulled groin.

Shibari anyone?

Personally, I find it a fascinating art form...
Kinbaku (緊縛?) means 'tight binding' Kinbaku-bi (緊縛美?) which literally means 'the beauty of tight binding'. Kinbaku (also Sokubaku, bakujojutsu, and senyojo jutsu) is a Japanese style of bondage or BDSM which involves tying up the bottom using simple yet visually intricate patterns, usually with several pieces of thin rope (often jute and generally around 6 mm in diameter, but sometimes as small as 4mm, and between 7m-8m long). In Japanese, this rope is known as 'asanawa'. The Japanese vocabulary does not make a distinction between hemp and jute. Dictionaries will usually translate the word 'asa' as hemp and 'nawa' as rope. However, this rope is not hemp rope, but jute rope: the allusion is to the use of hemp rope for restraining prisoners, as a symbol of power. In Japan very few bondage practitioners, if any, use hemp rope. Though jute and hemp may belong to the same family of fibers, and they both have good properties for holding knots and for not stretching, they do differ in looks, weight and especially in smell.
The word shibari came into common use in the West at some point in the 1990s to describe the bondage art Kinbaku. Shibari (縛り?) is a Japanese word that literally means "to tie" or "to bind". It is used in Japan to describe the artful use of twine to tie objects or packages.


He'll F*** you up...

Broccoli question...

Hi all... so, we have a broccoli plant which currently has one huge (approx 6 inches across) head in the center of it... I was told that popping that off would lead to other heads sprouting on the rest of the plant... is this right?

howdy.. I`m Opie.

or, Rick if you`re nice. I first came to DU back in `03. I`ve had periods where I posted quite regularly, and others where I went months without posting anything. Despite the occasional snark, I really don`t harbor any ill-will for anyone here. My main haunts are atheists/agnostics, mens group, GD and once in a while I`ll post music videos which nobody seems to want to hear in the lounge lol.

Elegant and funny insults....

I could read this all day... some great stuff.

husband I'd give you poison," and he said, "If you were my wife, I'd drink it."

A member of Parliament to Disraeli: "Sir, you will either die on the
gallows or of some unspeakable disease." "That depends, Sir," said
Disraeli, "on whether I embrace your policies or your mistress."

Highland, Speyside, Islay or Campbeltown?

I've just recently begun getting my feet wet in the world of Single-malts. So far, I'm partial to the Speysides. Particularly Aberlour and Balvenie. Any other Scotch fans feel like weighing in?
