    That is such a good movie.

    "I'd known her for years. We used to go to all the police functions together. Ah, how I loved her, but she had her music. I think she had her music. She'd hang out with the Chicago Male Chorus and Symphony. I don't recall her playing an instrument or being able to carry a tune. Yet she was on the road 300 days of the year. In fact, I bought her a harp for Christmas. She asked me what it was. "

    So, the other month Bart Ehrman released a book called Did Jesus Exist wherein he takes Acharya S to task for claiming there is a bronze statue hidden in the Vatican entitled "The Savior of the World". The statue depicts a rooster, with a human penis for a head.

    Everyone assumed Ehrman is right, but Acharya S keeps producing source after source discussing it. Looks like it really does exist.

    What a world.

    so, like

    what is it

    where is it from
    @Evil Multifarious

    Apparently it is a statue of the god Priapus - http://freethoughtnation.com/images/stories/sotercosmou.jpg ...maybe not safe for work.

    Acharya S thinks it is directly connected to the Apostle Peter, the scholarly consensus is sceptical.

    has anyone seen The Virgin suicides? watched it in class today. I thought it was excellent, it was maybe the most I've ever gotten out of class discussion too, made me realize how much was really going on in the movie (through what other people said and my own thoughts)

    her butt is pleasingly rendered i guess but it's also kind of weird-looking

    she is poorly written and executed though as a character
    But then, who do you choose?

    Ashley is religious and space racist
    Liara is all over the place and a weirdo. She's nice I suppose, but she's fairly lacking in personality.
    Jack is ANGRY and has no hair (or dat ass, or bosom).
    Tali. Don't even talk to me about that. The worst!

    I don't know if there's someone new in 3.

    Do ancient Greek poets count as philosophers?

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    I saw it. I found it darkly humorous at time, and at others rather depressing. Apparently it was the done thing amongst the mopey girls of my peers to watch it at parties and cut themselves.

    I would like to know more about what was going on. It has been a while though.

    Usually not. I'm sure there's a poet that crossed the boundary though somewhere.

    I'm trying to decide if Gilgamesh, Sophocles, euripides, Aristophanes, and Ovid go on my philosophy bookshelf or not. I'm tempted to put Aristophanes on there, but if I include him I have to include the others...and I'm afraid that if I include these guys i'm obligated to include Dante.

    I may be a xenophobe, but I definitely went Ashley/Miranda/
    Spoiler:

    There was very little about Liara or Tali that appealed to me and Jack vs Miranda, not even a question.

    that's frightening

    I shouldn't have said it that way, it's not like there's a secret plot or something. it's just a lot of the inter family stuff developed as we talked about it, the behavior of the parents and stuff.

    Tali. Don't even talk to me about that. The worst!

    I don't know if there's someone new in 3.

    the only reason not to pick tali is that she has legions of creepy nerd fans

    thing is, she is the best written female character, and also the best voice-acted. plus she is an interesting character who has a bunch of great scenes if you romance her that tie in with the greater storyline really directly.

    i think the romance with Tali that I saw in ME2 and ME3 is the best video game relationship I've seen, and there were even a few moments that made me go "awww!" and exchange cutesy faces with my girlfriend

    the weak point was definitely shepard of course, in those scenes

    i also found that romance scenes in general are kind of creepy in video games, and the more immersive the game the creepier they are - like the game is trying to make me attracted to this fake person, not as a sexual image-object but as a person

    and also that when shepard starts hitting on the ladies it really dissociates me, as a player, from the character - i'm no longer shepard, i'm just watching shepard and inputting decisions

    haha aw

    thank you! and yeah it is a very fond one for me. I don't think I'd ever laughed that hard in my life, and I don't think I had ever seen that side of my dad before either.

    the hardest i've ever seen my father laugh was one sunday morning when I was maybe ten or eleven

    we were all having breakfast and my dad was reading the paper at the counter, chuckling at the dave barry column

    and then he starts laughing really hard, and tries to read this one section

    and he gets to a sentence, something about "singing songs about roofing," and he just starts cackling uncontrollably (we both have high-pitched laughs), double over in his blue robe, taking off his glasses and wiping his eyes, laughing so hard that he starts drooling a bit and finally has to drink some water to recover

    he was a carpenter and contractor so i think the subject matter struck him just so

    it is a very endearing memory

    that moment in a young man's life when he and his dad laugh at a beaver joke together

  • FeralFeral Who needs a medical license when you've got style? Registered User regular
    My dad had a seriously raunchy sense of humor and was making lewd jokes as long as I can remember.

    I actually suppressed my sexuality quite a lot when I was around him during puberty because I didn't want him to make jokes about it.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
