Table Top Episode 1: Small World (by geekandsundry)

Give me a tab →

Lou: You gonna order something, kid?
Marty McFly: Ah, yeah… Give me - Give me a Tab.
Lou: Tab? I can’t give you a tab unless you order something.
Marty McFly: All right, give me a Pepsi Free.
Lou: You want a Pepsi, PAL, you’re gonna pay for it.

Kids today watching Back to the Future would be just as confused as Lou. What the fuck is a Tab? What the fuck is Pepsi Free?

Full circle.

Joel Stein - Adults Should Read Adult Books

The only thing more embarrassing than catching a guy on the plane looking at pornography on his computer is seeing a guy on the plane reading “The Hunger Games.” Or a Twilight book. Or Harry Potter. The only time I’m O.K. with an adult holding a children’s book is if he’s moving his mouth as he reads.

Translation: I am insufferable cunt.

Honestly, there’s not a sentence in his article that I don’t find absolutely hateful. Using Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace to show us how well-read you are is total bullshit (I know this because it’s the exact kind of total bullshit I pull myself).

Should have sent a poet

For all the complaints about the Smithfield Horse Fair, what happens if they take it away? We miss out on pictures like this.

Pushed into a pile of horse shit.

With a massive horse wang hitting him on the head.

Amazing.

Running

While more than a million humans run marathons voluntarily each year, most animals we consider excellent runners — antelopes and cheetahs, for example — are built for speed, not endurance. Even nature’s best animal distance runners — such as horses and dogs — will run similar distances only if forced to do so, and the startling evidence is that humans are better at it, Lieberman said.

Modern humans and their immediate ancestors such as Homo erectus sport several adaptations that make humans, instead of some ferocious, furry, or fleet creature, the animal world’s best distance runners.

Sex in San Andreas

Unfortunately, here is the situation,” Donovan wrote in an e-mail to Sam on Aug. 16, 2004, and proceeded to list the necessary changes.

“Hooker in car blow job — we need to show much less of the critical mouth to penis area.

“Hooker Stand Up Blow Job — this needs to be removed or implied.

“Sex with girlfriend — essentially this is all beyond the bounds of M and 18 ratings, and needs to be removed or implied.

“Sex shop workers need to have slightly more nipple coverage particularly for the States.

“Key to her heart spanking date scene needs to be removed, as it constitutes sexualized violence which is a huge problem.

“Blow job in back room of dealer’s house is cool however.
