I think I'm going to start randomly PMing people "we will be friends" after they reply to my posts.

I'm now wondering if down the road I'll have to explain the action of blocking picture posts from a certain friend of mine on Facebook.  I know I'm going to miss something good, because she occasionally posts awesome geeky stuff, and I get the feeling that she's going to ask me "Why didn't you react to that Batman thing (or whatever) I posted?  I figured you'd love that."  And I'm going to have to tell her "Well, it all goes back to the day I logged on during my lunch break at work and noticed the Tumblr pic you shared with the world of the hardbodied guy with the giant erect cock."
This is why I have safe dash on tumblr, I haver a friend on there who posts great things on neopaganism and pop culture as well as gifs of gay porn and just hugely endowed fellas. Now some of that can be aesthetically pleasing certainly, but it's difficult to tell what's going to be in the mix and it's not where my inclinations mostly lie so it's nice to have the buffer of the safe-dash windows in place.

Which was directly followed by many protests of all the Bible thumpers and Mormons (of which there are . . .  were a ridiculous amount of in the BSA) declaring they were quitting.

Actually, the Mormon church supports this change.

Quote
SALT LAKE CITY -- The LDS Church said Thursday it will continue its long-time association with the Boy Scouts of America, even after the organization voted to lifts its ban on openly gay youth.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints posted a statement on its website saying sexual orientation has never been, and is not now, something that precludes young boys from being in Mormon Scout troops. As long as youth refrain from premarital sex - a strict church rule - they can participate in Boy Scouts, church officials said.
"Willingness to abide by standards of behavior continues to be our compelling interest," the statement said.
The LDS church teaches its members that marriage is between a man and a woman, and that same-sex relationships are sinful. But the church recently launched a campaign encouraging members to be more compassionate toward gay and lesbian members of the church.
The Boy Scouts of America voted Thursday to ease a divisive ban and allow openly gay boys to be accepted into the nation's leading youth organization. Gay adults will remain barred from serving as Scout leaders.
More than 60 percent of local Scout leaders voting at the annual meeting in Texas supported the proposal.
The Salt Lake City-based Mormon church - which has more Scouting troops than any other religious denomination in the country - announced last month it was satisfied with the proposed rule change.
Thursday's statement said church officials appreciate the Boy Scouts of America reaffirming its commitment to the central principles that the church also teaches young men. That includes service to others and moral behavior.
"As in the past, the church will work with BSA to harmonize what Scouting has to offer with the varying needs of our young men," the statement said. "We trust that BSA will implement and administer the approved policy in an appropriate and effective manner."
Utah's two main Boy Scout councils also support the rule change. The Great Salt Lake Council and Utah National Parks Council vote sent voting members to the national meeting in Texas. They are two of the largest councils in the country, with the majority of troops sponsored by the Mormon church.
"This is a win for youth and a win for the community," said John Gailey, spokesman for the Utah National Parks Council, which covers central and southern Utah. "It gives all youth the opportunity to take advantage of the values instilled by Scouting."
The Great Salt Lake Council, which covers the Salt Lake City area, said in a statement that the new policy allows all children to be part of Scouts while at the time sticking to the "long-standing virtues of Scouting."
"While people have different opinions about this policy, we can all agree that kids are better off when they are in Scouting," the statement said.
Gailey emphasized that Boy Scouts is a youth program, and that sexual activity - heterosexual or homosexual - goes against the values of Boy Scouts. The council is fine that the ban remains in place for gay Scout leaders, he said.
"It is a little more complex when you get into the adult arena because of various lifestyles and such," Gailey said. "That's something that may take some additional time to understand."
He doesn't know if they'll lose any Scouts or leaders due to unhappiness with the new policy, but predicted most members of the church will follow the lead of church leaders.
"I would hope that members understand and pay attention to what their church leadership is saying and follow in that support," Gailey said.

Wow, kudos to them. Much more tolerant of a reaction than I expected. Which is more than I can say for the fundamental Christians I've heard from. We had at least one family who has been with our pack for years say that they're quitting scouts. My wife wondered how exactly they were going to explain that to their son, especially since, as far as we know, there aren't any gay scouts in our particular group.

I thought 23 was too young to have glaucoma.  But we now have a patient that was diagnosed at 17.  Seventeen friggin years old.  She's only 19 now.  Was sent to us because her doctor retired.

"Oh, Master Wayne, I'm - oh..."

"What is it, Alfred?"

"It's just the Joker and The Riddler, sir. They're here."

"My God, man! Do they want tea?"

"No, I think they're after something more than that, sir. I don't know what it is, but they've brought a flag."

"Damn, that's dash cunning of them!"

A honeybee landed on my foot a few minutes ago.  I love the little creatures and let it bee.

However, if it had been a wasp or hornet the fucker would have been dead before you can say stupid fucker.

Usually it's not to bad let a honey bee land on you, I've only had one bite me once, I probably moved too much since it was on the tip of my finger...

And since I just watched the movie this is from last week:

"Was you ever bit by a dead bee?"

The following is an exact quote from the Subway website:

Quote from: Subway
The Cold Cut Combo is stacked with turkey-based meats - ham, salami and bologna.

Does someone need to tell Subway what a Turkey is?
