It's Been Resolved? This Week Is SI Cover, Next Week is the 50 Shades of Grey Movie?

Last edited Fri Feb 6, 2015, 08:09 PM - Edit history (8)

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Hassin Bin Sober (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I just wanted to get the schedule straight here, since my stores of popcorn and bourbon are running low.....

This week is the SI cover, right?

Next week is the 50 Shades of Grey Movie?

Who are we sending in as our designated "50 Shades" watcher?

I nominate malaise, but I fear we might not get more than "go to the theatre, right fuggin' now."

There's always The Magistrate. I can't even begin to imagine the awesomeness of his movie review. "Whereupon the ubiquitous Mr. Grey began to oscillate the whip....."

Sid Dithers could write a review completely in smilies.

woo me with science would just give us 17 insane blue links.

So would ProSense.

Octafish would probably demonstrate the link between JFK and Christian Grey, via crop circles.

steveleser would make us listen to his radio show.

Skittles---now there's a poster who has long been into BDSM. But the ALL CAPS would kill us.

Third-Way Manny? We'd all get alerted on if we disagreed with him.

Aerows? Somehow it would come back to the damn raccoon.

Mineral Man? Hell, if I wanted to read an appliance manual.....

Trumad? He should stick to other balls. Footballs, baseballs.....

pinboy3niner would do it all in puns.

So would pintobean.

zappaman would just turn it into an anti-Jenny McCarthy screed.

ADDED---

sabrina1 would just drone on about drones....

sheshe would post Obama pics.

(Name redacted per request), seabeyond, bostonbean, redqueen????? Not going there, folks.....

Luminous Animal would just post whatever Glenn Greenwald had to say about how we shouldn't judge 50 Shades, because Obama probably tied someone up, somewhere....

Purveyor would let us know the RT point of view on this Western decadence.

Will Pitt would post a paragraph or two, then make us click over to Truthout.....

xchrom would post a review, then never come back to the thread.

Robb would just be a dingbat about it.

Hannah Bell would link to the WSWS review, and prove that Christian Grey was allegory for the Bilderbergers. (So would her latest incarnation. We see you!!!)

Skinner would post a review in ATA, then forget to reveal the thread.

graywarrior's shown an affinity for duct tape--I wonder if it would translate.....

rhett o rick would accuse us of enabling the cryptofascistauthoritarianscorpratists. Or the Stasi.

HERETIC I AM would post a complete review in pictures taken in his kitchen.



Who would you nominate to be our designated 50 Shades watcher?

TO THE JURY----This thread is COMPLETELY IN FUN--I will remove the name of any person who is offended....they can PM me.

37. You just motivated me to do a web search...

Women who smoke during pregnancy are more likely to have children with high-functioning autism, a new study suggests.

"It has long been known that autism is an umbrella term for a wide range of disorders that impair social and communication skills," lead researcher Professor Amy Kalkbrenner from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health said in a statement released on Thursday.

“What we are seeing is that some disorders on the autism spectrum, more than others, may be influenced by a factor such as whether a mother smokes during pregnancy,” she added.


http://www.medicaldaily.com/smoking-during-pregnancy-may-increase-autism-risk-children-240277

She's a known smoker. Could this have anything to do with her kid's condition?

145. Ha!

My username was my last radio callsign in Vietnam. Before that we were on the 6 system and I was Itchy Click One-Six, designating the company's 1st platoon leader. Eventually they figured out that by using the 6 system we were giving valuable intel about our units to the enemy, so they switched to random callsigns.

We knew they were monitoring our radio transmissions. The NVA once transmitted a fake order, in perfect English, supposedly from our higher HQ, ordering our company to move into their ambush.

57. I'm looking forward to the film

I suspect it may be that rare case where the film is better than the book, since they're ejecting a lot of the truly awful stuff - and the dialogue, and can make something more interesting.

The book is utter trash and a real problem with its portrayals of what it thinks BDSM is and bad power dynamics in a relationship.

But the world isn't made up of couples that are equally balanced, with many on both sides of the relationship that don't want it to be equal.

So seeing different lifestyles is interesting.

HEAR the popcorn melt under the intense heat of lava hot liquid butter!

A raccoon bit her and it turned out that it was a better situation than being forced to watch 50 Shades of Grey. Aerows lucked out by only getting a shit ton of rabies shots in various painful parts of the body.

She preserved herself from mental illness.

Mental illness related to being a fan of 50 Shades of Gross.
