Spewing Mountain Dew out my nose used to be kind of my thing.

I experienced bacon up there and I found precious little to recommend it to others. Salty, smoky grease does not play well with the delicate tissue within.

Then I blew a tiny chunk of meatball out of my other nostril.


A similar thing happened to me involving bits of half-chewed hamburger.

Hot coffee is also not a great thing to shoot out of your nose.

almost anything flying out of your nostril is unpleasant. Even just regular old snot has to be forced out with sneezes.

Yeah, but at least snot is supposed to be there. Can't say the same about Tabasco sauce or legos.

When I told my niece about it, she said, "Oh, he's just a 15 year old boy, they're all like that."



I was at a wedding a year ago where the best man speech went something like this:

You know, hunting in Pennsylvania is different than hunting here in Maryland. I remember when GROOM and I were up hunting in PA... Something about tree stands and hunting deer... And once we tracked the son of a bitch down, GROOM grabbed that deer by its antlers, wrestled it to the ground and slit its throat.

That was the point where I had to go to the bathroom or else I was going to laugh at how inappropriate the speech was. But the worst part was that everyone but me was nodding their heads in agreement that yes, hunting in a different state is different and talking about someone slitting a throat is perfectly normal for a wedding toast.

I hate to be that guy but if you're tracking a wounded animal (even if you wounded it) cutting its throat is literally the best possible thing you can do for it. First of all it kills it quickly and, along with hanging it from a tree, allows you to drain its blood for proper field stripping. It might not be wedding talk but its not wrong.

EDIT: Hey don't get me wrong I'm actually completely against hunting, I'm just sayin'...

Hunting is a lot like getting married.
You find the one with the biggest rack and wrestle the life out of it so you can parade it around like a trophy in front of your buddies.

You take life from something else to feel better about yourself.

Oh, I know, I grew up in hunting communities, but for it to be a best man's toast? Seemed completely ridiculous.

On of my college roommates - and avid rural PA hunter and democrat - was watching a hunting show in our apartment once. The guy on the TV said something like "you gotta hit the wingbutt and get the goodies."

I never really took hunters seriously.

Hunters are not more or less retarded than anyone else, which makes them, on average, real fuckin' retarded

I'm having a burger at a place that's advertising that they use "Himalayan sea salt". Even if such a thing exists, I feel like this is the equivalent of, say, mountain-grown coffee from the Maldives.

It is indeed a thing, though whatever sea that the deposits come from is long, long gone. As to what benefit there is, eh. Looks pink. Might taste ever so slightly different.

Usually it's just called Himalayan Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt. Since it's rock salt, not sea salt.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Yeah, "came from a sea millions of years ago" is not in fact the meaning of "sea salt".

A friend of mine orders birdseed online for delivery; normally he buys 10 lbs.

Today, he received a delivery of 300 lbs of birdseed.

Image

He confirmed that neither he nor his wife ordered it. he also made damn sure he hadn't been charged for it. Now he has 300 lbs of birdseed.

I guess he's good for a while.
