    no, i just don't like talking to you

    So...don't? Going out of your way to make a post about how much you don't like me seems pretty juvenile to be honest.

    Esp. for a mod.

    man, you've really lost your mojo

    Come on. I know we get the occasional whining about the mean ol' mods from ignorant new folks, but you've been here. The mods are probably more likely than the general population to call people stupid fuckers if only because they have to wade directly into the morons.

    at least the one taking the medicine was able to figure out the correlation and stop

    but dang, that was some crazy stuff

    it really does explain how the addiction happens, though...

    i get super addicted to this really cheap risk-type game on my phone that randomly assigns your army units so it's like if gambling and risk were mixed together

    I love that episode because it also has the story (I think) of the two girls in Britain with the same names who found each other by random chance and were close in age and what they wore and had similar hamsters and everything.

    I have my episodes mixed up. I am thinking of radiolab's The Good Show, and the theme is altruism. The story is about George Price. It is a neat show.

    So on All Things Considered this morning, they did a little Story Corps thing where they get regular people to tell a story and the full version gets put into the library of congress.

    This one was told by an aging, crass woman who was talking about her crazy ass dad back in the sixties. She was pretty funny and had this really dry, old lady voice.

    So after her bit was done, the host said "No, that wasn't David Sedaris describing a new book, that was (whoever), telling her story for blah blah blah"

    I was like, damn Robert Siegel. Sick Burn.

    Petty Tyrant was really, really good.

    Haven't listened to Toxie yet.

    The first act of The Super is really funny.

    Act two of Neighborhood Watch was also super tense.

    Neither invisibility or flight are that great. How fast can you fly? Can you go faster? How much higher? I do not like most amusement rides I doubt I would like flight. And people will see you and shoot you down. Also the higher up you get the windier and colder it gets and also BIRDS.

    Invisibility doesn't work unless you take off all your clothes. Which is lame and cold. Maybe kinky I guess.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    yes, it is an awesome story too. It was in the avengers initiative after civil war

    his power is that his body cannot be harmed or change state at all.

    guess how you get stronger? you break down muscle mass and it grows back.

    whoops, my body can't be harmed in any way.
