Topic Timeline Information. Is it too much information?

I like the Timeline exactly as it is.
As for as comments to vote or not, that is a good option that each individual member can either turn on or off. I like options.
Topic Browsers that work best with Lush, specifically Mac users
07 Mar 2014 20:32
I recently purchased a brand new Mac computer and soon discovered that Safari, the preloaded browser, was terribly incompatible with Lush. Using Safari is a nightmare. The pages jump almost uncontrollably. Typing comments and Forum posts is like playing a video game so to speak, the results highly unpredictable. Voting on stories... well that has been tricky. So far I don't think I've accidentally scored anything wrong. I next downloaded Firefox and discovered it was pretty much the same. Gav has suggested Chrome. I will download that tomorrow. If that one does the trick, I will recommend it to Mac users.

I usually grow a winter beard and trim it very short and keep it for a month or two. I have one right now.
Topic things to do naked

The Garden of Eden. The rooftop portion of the Bull and Whistle bar in Key West is clothing-optional.
Well, Mr. NudiePants, you do almost everything nude anyhow. I know that was you I saw jogging naked down Peachtree Street Sunday, and just when people were driving home from church too.

That right you hose head, you know your stuff eh?
Who is calling who a hose head, you hoser? You're the Canadian. One of those that keeps plundering our hockey teams before we can even figure out what the hell 'icing' means. What does 'icing' mean? I attend hockey for the fights. Everytime my team scores I yell, "TOUCHDOWN!" I know, I know, the Canadian transplants give me a funny look. But I yell, "They've got Moosehead beer half off at the concession stand" and they take off running.
The problem with Canadians is that you never know they are Canadians, They are so sneaky. And you can't make them mad. I try pouring beer on their heads and 'WHAT?" They love it. Now I'm their best friend. Damn Canadians... you can't stay mad at them long either. Shit, we don't even guard the border with them.

I've never ieare of such a thing as a British accent!
There are several aren't there? I'd like to know the regional differences, broken down smaller than just English, Welch, Scottish and so forth. I'm sure it's much more complicated, just as it is over here in the USA and Canada.

Severe economic pressures could well work against the Putin regime at this time. The economy is for sure an Achilles Heal he may not be able to defend for long. I hope that works. I think he mostly wants to play bully.

I have a southern drawl, the Georgia variety. There are several different southern accents, and those bad imitations from Hollywood and TV aren't them.
I love Brit accents on women. You can throw in Aussie, Scottish, French, and most European accents too. I like 'em!

Saying he's just a friend now... NO! Not that they can't be friends, but it's only okay if I go along or its with a larger group of friends.
I also I don't do that to her. I used to be fuck buddies (friends-with-benefits) with her best friend, who is also married now. We as couples are very close friends, but I don't do the lunch thing or anything with just her.
However a couple handles this, they should be on the same page with it and they should expect equal behavior and tolerance from each other.
Topic cock rings
04 Mar 2014 16:40
I've worn both the 'cock & balls' and the 'just the cock' rings. I prefer rubber or whatever its made of, something that I can take off without too much trouble. Make sure you get the right size. If you put one that is too small on, well, it will be too tight and you might feel like panicking to take it off. And if its too big it won't do you any good.
Topic What are you wearing right now?

Hope it's a cock sock
Just guessing you'll need the jumbo size!
The jumbo of course.

Talk about memorable, you should see me when I show up wearing my trademark, one sock.
Topic The Ukraine Crisis
02 Mar 2014 14:13
I hope you're wrong about that result. A few weeks ago I looked at the demographic map of Ukraine and saw the pro-EU and pro-Russia sentiment almost split the country down the middle geographically. My first thought was that Ukraine should split into two, though I doubt that would work ethnically or nationalistically. Still, it might have solved some of the problems.
That would be sad, but it is a real possibility. The Ukraine's chance at building a free nation, a democracy, a nation of civil rights, may be lost. But splitting ethnically may work out to be better.
The EU though has the ability to put economic pressure on Putin, the EU itself have very little history of anything as for as military. NATO is still the number one military alliance in Europe (which includes most of the EU nations) and that includes the USA amongst other non-European nations. The EU isn't a scary get tough organization. But really, I don't see this getting that deep. WWIII is not going to break out over Putin running rough shod over Ukraine. And those neighbor countries of Ukraine aren't really strong enough to take on Russia. Their need for Russian trade, etc. may be stronger than their desire to see the right thing happen in Ukraine. They were after all, the subservient countries in the days of the old Soviet Union.
I would love to see diplomacy work this out, but Putin seems more like one who would use that as an opportunity to extort something for his gain. More than likely if he pulls out of the Ukraine it is because European countries have given him something he wants. They'll have to give him something he wants more than the entire Ukraine, so I wouldn't doubt that he ends up with at least Crimea and something else (who knows what.)
I'm not a Reagan fan, though he was entertaining, he had his good points and his bad points. As far as Reagan the Cowboy, he did do a pretty damn good job of taming the old Soviet Union, and that was a much more intimidating power than the current Russia. Of course that huge white elephant was looking for any excuse to crush under its own unsustainable socialistic weight. All it needed was a Cowboy to give it a thump.

Kind of silly to say that. Putin wouldn't have been intimidated by a McCain admin or (yeesh) a Romney one either. Hell, he wouldn't have been intimdated by Reagan or a Prez Cheney. Putin may indeed only understand power vs. power. And frankly it's the EU, and Poland, Belarus and Romania that really need to be pushing back.
They don't have anything to push back with, unless they are backed by the US, Britain and the Commonwealth. No Putin, still a KGB bully, would not have been intimidated by Romney, McCain or Cheney, but I disagree, Reagan would've made him piss in his pants. And Putin didn't mess with that crazy fuck George W. Bush. You don't mess with dangerous lunatics who might push nuclear launch buttons. Putin is not a lunatic nor is he stupid, he is a calculated bully who wants to empire build. He spent 90 minutes on the phone with Obama yesterday and then sends more troops to Ukraine. He is not worried about it. He may end up with all of Crimea or at least a puppet government in Ukraine. He'd be very happy with a puppet government.
I seriously doubt any large military action (other than Russian occupation forces) will take place over any of this. No one is going to stop Putin unless some backdoor deal that makes it worth his while is worked out. Of course that's just paying him off.
Unfortunately, a few million people may be stuck under Putin's anti-civil rights, anti-gay rights, anti-women's rights policies.

I don't think Putin has ever been intimidated at all by the Obama administration. The situation for Ukraine is dire. For Ukraine to have any chance at all of creating a real and democratic government, now is the time for it to be accomplished. Putin doesn't want that, he'd rather have a puppet nation sitting on the Black Sea.
President Obama needs to line up support from a large coalition of nation's to force Putin to back down. The only thing Putin understands is power. Gather enough of it that he believes will act and he'll back off. If he doesn't take it seriously he won't. Diplomacy must have something scary to back it up it or its useless.
Now is when we find out if any of our western leaders have any balls.
Topic Pick up lines???
01 Mar 2014 22:26
I'm married now, so no. But when I was single I didn't use pick up lines. Usually just 'hello' worked fine. If the girl is attracted to you, she'll start doing all the talking after that.
