I love the bagpipes and I used to walk to work past a playground that had a piper who practiced there every morning. It was a JOY. A JOY! Don’t let the bastards grind you down. Read more
But can the worst white people READ posters? This is a joke as much as it is a serious concern....
Good for you for maturing. From one Scot-American to another of Scot-descent, I’m proud of you. After years in the Navy, I’ve got minor hearing loss and tinnitus. I always carry ear plugs now, which has been super-useful as Ive started attending group classes and the instructors have a devil-may-care attitude towards… Read more
I was about to make the same suggestion. When I was a regular spinner, I wore ear plugs and could still hear the instructor and music just fine but without the pain. Read more
Just be aware 12 steps is a religious cult, and they’d like you there for life. If you’re not able to “pick” a god and pray, find another option. Read more
I’m sorry, they can’t comprehend irony?
Is this you talking to them in sign language, or you expecting deaf people to hear you speak?
I’ve been getting comments about how beautiful my now-11 year old daughter is for most of her life, have also gotten variations of “you’re going to be in trouble when she is older.Yes, while I’d rather focus on what a kind person she is and what a great hardworking and intelligent student she is, and how she likes to… Read more
What is up with people here consistently projecting their own sexual associations towards children? When someone says “You’re gonna be in trouble when she grows up,” what they’re saying is “She’s cute now, and I bet she’ll be beautiful when she’s older”.

I love that absolutely everyone answered in exactly the way you just chastised them for. The Gawkerverse is nothing if not predictable. “Agree with me or you’re wrong.” Read more
No. No they didn’t. They stayed neutral and expressed thoughts on a completely different issue: judgment. So fuck you and fuck off. Read more
Agree with what you said. I do find it harder as an adult to make new friends. It’s just so much easier to get stuck in a rut and not get out and meet new people. Read more
This is great advice! Hell, I wouldn’t let 18 year old me pick out an outfit for myself, much less my friends. Read more
This. All day. Make new friends. And don’t consider it as replacing the old ones. Think of new friends like listening to new music - there’s lots of space in your life for new people. Read more
Yeah, downsides...like life. Or sequestering carbon. Or not pissing away water. Or not creating an ecological nightmare with unregulated agricultural chemicals. Read more
It doesn’t take ego: some of them are also just big and stupid. Quit making people that do jobs heros. They are people doing jobs. You would most likely be saved by the inventor of the fire alarm, windsheild wiper, seat belt or helmet more so than a fireman or policeman. I appreciate the jobs people do but they are… Read more
Good lord, how can I like this more. Why do I have to be the one who feels guilty when asking someone else to be considerate and not blow something disgusting and smelly in my face. If you smoke in a crowd, you’re a bad person. Go home. Read more
