I just saw Barney Frank on TV with a white beard and thought his neck had grown mold.

Why is that the first thing that comes into my mind when I read something like People Encourage College ‘Women to Say They Were Raped When What They Really Were Was Regretful’ is "Now what could make Girly think to write such a thing in the first place?" Consider

Here's a random thought!

When Pence/Trump outlaws abortion with exception to rape cases, why not have every woman wanting to terminate a pregnancy claim rape... and that Trump did it! Sure the first few hundred would have to take one for the team, but after a million cases? 10 million cases? Evil_monster

Yeah, I know; it'll never happen! Dodgy

I don't think Pence will allow for exceptions. I like the way you're thinking though. Thumbsup

RE: Random thoughts
I think Trump/Pence should work its way into the lexicon as a noun/adjective meaning to abstain from logic and reason:

"The trumpence movement set our country back 50 years."

"My mother attributes our country's failures as a trumpence in all things government-related."

Hippopotami would make a good band name.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Thought it was just this Barnes and Noble that hires people who have no clue how to shelve in alphabetical order; was disabused of the notion when visiting another store an hour away today. A's were next to S's were next to G's. Also subject matter was weirdly misplaced too; like I found Jerry DeWitt's Hope After Faith in the Christian Life section, and a Star Wars novel in Biography.

Oh come on man, Pence won't allow a rape exception. Those jerkasses in Arkansas aren't now, they're letting (or going to let, rather) the rapist sue the doctor who does the abortion. Censored

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Random thoughts
I'ma give about a 70% chance that there will be news reports of some kind of act of violence occurring at the superbowl tomorrow, committed against someone wearing a MAGA shirt or hat and/or setting at least one inanimate object on fire, because people are dumb and allow media fads to dictate how strongly they should feel about particular things.

Actually, no, bump that up to 80%. I'm feeling particularly sure of myself on this one.
and an 85% chance that a car with a Trump bumper sticker gets vandalized after the game.

Anyone want to place bets?

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Have you ever gotten real high and listened to a blues guitar solo so fucking mean and raunchy that you say "gaddamn!" out loud?

I recommend it.
