Maybe so. I am not a real movie buff so you may be right. I didn't think that Clint Eastwood's character dying made for such a traditional happy ending though. In my day, if he had been victorious over the gang and survived and everyone else lived happily ever after, would have been a traditional happy ending. On second thought, you're absolutely right about that. The traditional happy ending usually doesn't involve a firing squad LOL.
I'll repeat what Sprite asked. What is a Loe? You don't want to know. Trust me. The less you know about the loes, the better. Walk away, and count yourself lucky for it.
Shawshank Redemption How? That movie has a textbook traditional happy ending.
Gran Torino But under its own circumstances, wasn't this ending a fairly happy resolution? Same with Sling Blade, really. In both movies, the crisis resolved itself in arguably the best realistic way. Come to think of it...those two movies are really similar thematically, too, right down to the ending. http://images3.static-bluray.com/reviews/1689_5.jpg sniff, sniff..... Great movie, though.
I love this response , http://www.buzzfeed.com/summeranne/abercrombie-fitch-ads-re-imagined-as-attractive-fat , it is ten times better than the whole exploitation of the homeless thing! So a Buzzfeed bit on overweight people shilling for A&F is better than actually clothing people? Admittedly I do detect a bit of unseemly pandering in both the Buzzfeed link you provided and the 'A&F for the Homeless' campaign, but to take meaningful offense here on behalf of the homeless sort of depends on a homeless person giving a fuck about the politics of fashion douchebaggery, and whether or not they've become a pawn within it. More than likely, your average overpass resident will wait until he has clothes on his back, a steady paycheck, and a roof over his head before worrying about whether he's become an internet meme among hipsters and college kids. Only then, with the aid of a smartphone and a wifi connection, might he mildly resent the ironic origins behind the designer shirt that actually kept him warm and dry at the time it was given. Though I think it's more likely that he'll strongly resent the mall-peddler who openly disdains the less-attractive, the poor and the overweight, and is dumb enough to express it publicly.Now, if we take a bunch of .jpgs and start a Tumblr of homeless dudes in A&F gear, I agree that's a little weird. But to subtly but steadily, one consumer at a time, poke this dickhead in the ribs, and help somebody in the process? I fail to be outraged by that.
This headline says everything you need to know about Yahoo, and more importantly, illustrates what Yahoo knows about itself: Yahoo on Tumblr Acquisition Deal: 'We won't screw it up." This is what it's come to for Yahoo, your grandmother's email and search engine provider. They know that we all know theyr'e in the straw-grasping business lately, so when they finally buy something of value and relevance, they immediately go into pre-emptive damage control, because they have to. It speaks volumes that Yahoo didn't have a Tumblr of their own until they fucking bought the interface, yet nobody should be surprised by that fact. And yes, they'll ruin it, because they have the reverse midas touch, with a trail of carcasses to show for it. So enjoy Tumblr while it exists in its current form. Soon it will be bombarded with ads, merged into some half-assed social networking scheme, censored heavily, and eventually die a slow death. And the funny thing is, the demise will be completely unforeseen by its owner/perps when it happens.The good news is, there's plenty of minds out there inventing the next outpost on the frontier. Tomorrow's Tumblr is just getting its legs under it out there, somewhere.
Or does it say somewhere in the constitution that you're allowed a certain amount of drinks before you get behind the wheel of a car? Sadly, no. :( I looked and everything. I read somewhere that when they lowered the limits from .10 to .08, there was very little effect afterward in terms of lives saved or accidents prevented. That said, I think having it at the .05 might sway certian drivers from drinking so much and/or getting out onto the road after doing so. I've seen it suggested, and I wholeheartedly agree, that to really move the needle in terms of drunk driving, they need to provide incentives to not drive drunk. Potential punishment only goes so far, and whether it's .08, .05, or .01, people are going to roll the dice and drive anyway, since all they're trying to do is avoid trouble (and will almost always get away with it). We can talk all we want about how safety of others should be reason enough, but the reality is that it's not enough. The girl that parked at the bar doesn't want to leave her car on the street to get ticketed. The guy doesn't want to leave his car in a bad neighborhood. Taxis are expensive. People don't want the embarrassment of showing up at home without the car ("I'm that drunk guy, apparently...") only to have to catch a ride the next morning to go get it. There are things they can do that will help. The city can choose to waive parking tickets for those that choose to leave their cars instead of drive home in them. Restaurant and bar associations can pool resources and join forces with taxi companies to offer "safe ride home" discounts. Tow trucks in certain places have already teamed up with alcoholic beverage companies to provide free tows home, and it seems like it's in Budweiser's interest to see that alcohol doesn't get demonized in society any more than it already has. I'm sure other ideas could be put forward as well, but the fringe benefit of these things might be that it wouldn't be so uncool to choose not to drive home. Sure, roll your eyes...but this is America we're talking about LOL. We'll sacrifice a lot as a people to not self-identify as losers and outsiders. Familiar with the phrases "can't handle his liquor" or "lightweight"? This is what I'm talking about, at least in part. When a city wants a once-vibrant neighborhood redeveloped, what do they do? Do they lay guilt trips on developers and tell them that it's in the best interest of the city to develop in a certain place? Or do they offer tax breaks, regulatory incentives, and other treats to entice them? It's something to think about.
Like most things that offend, its not what was said but how it was said, and the underlying worldview that was exposed. I hope enough AF clothes get donated to clothe every homeless person from coast to coast LOL. All he had to say was that their marketing vision has always been consistent with what's in the stores now. There are a hundred ways to spin it to not openly offend plus-size shoppers, and he chose none of them.
I may have to modify my statement if a "Mediator" is different or has different powers than a "Moderator". If a mediator's jobs and powers are less than those of a moderator. It's more or less the same thing. I think we've spent enough time on this flap by now, don't you?
And one more thing...I've got this moist, smelly pile of liquid crap on block and this isn't his thread so how does that work that he continues to see anything I do? I thought blocking scum like him made my posts invisible to him? Oh well, doesn't matter. For what it's worth, the block option doesn't really work that way. They can't contact you, but they're still visible in the forum. It's time to put the mudslinging to rest, and stay on topic. That goes for everyone, regardless of whether a member volunteers their time to the site or not. Keeping score on Internet slap fights is a waste of everyone's time. Besides, your positions are well thought-out from what I've seen. I'd much rather see you share those opinions than never-ending expletive-laden retorts. Let's put that in the past and all move on.
Something powerful stirred inside me when I heard the groan of carnal satisfaction over the gentle waves. That something had been trying to return for a while, nudged toward life with every sultry glance and beautiful body that I encountered or imagined. But when I turned the corner that night and saw her on his lap, rolling her hips, unmistakeably fucking, that was when...

The lingering scents of warm shower water and body lotion lingered in the air when I slowly awoke, still nestled comfortably in the cottony cocoon of our sheets and comforters. As my senses powered up, one by one, the events of the day before dawned on me anew, ending the peaceful morning amnesia even before my eyes opened. I’d spent the afternoon and evening in a mental battle with...

“I miss having sex with a man sometimes.” We were sitting in Gato del Sol, our neighborhood Mexican restaurant, having what passes for Sunday brunch, just like we did nearly every Sunday. I was skimming through the ads in the weekly alternative paper when she looked up from her iPhone and said that, breaking a good five minutes of comfortable silence. “I mean, I can’t handle a...

"Seriously? Forty-five minutes from the house, you decide not to start? Just like that? Come on!" I pleaded at the dashboard, which stared blankly back at me, both of us cooking under the harsh July afternoon sun. For what must have been fifteen minutes I turned the key in the ignition, over and over, and each time my 20-year-old BMW compact car was obviously no closer to starting. For now, I...

I woke up on my back, with no idea where I was. I felt the heat of the sun on my face before I even opened my eyes, and when I finally did, I wished I hadn't. My head pounded, my nose was both stuffy and runny. My body felt battered without even moving a muscle, and I felt what must be depression for the first time in my life. I was naked and cold, even in the warmth of focused sunlight....

I had to lose almost everything before I came to my senses, sitting there at the dining table with my boyfriend Todd - watching him gamble away everything he owned and, as it turned out, a few major things that I owned too. I never considered myself to be stupid, but much as a frog stays in water that slowly warms up to a boil without noticing what is going on, it somehow didn't concern...

"I'm gonna cum, honey! I'm cumming- ahhh!" Loi tensed his whole body, holding himself stiffly before rolling off and collapsing on the mattress beside me. I carefully pulled the condom off of his penis and got up to throw it away. I didn't cum before he did, which means I wouldn't cum at all; when he cums, he's finished with sex. It's okay, sex isn't everything, he loves me very much, but...

“When's she gonna show up? I'm ready to go!” Ramon, my boyfriend, was yelling at me from the living room. He was ready to leave two beers ago, but it was okay with me that Ashley was late; I was still trying to decide what to wear, and the fact that it was Ashley that we were going out with made me more self-conscious than usual. I'm a dancer, which is short for 'exotic dancer', which is...

My night was going way too slow until you came in. Just a handful of regulars that say the same creepy shit to me every dance, and a few scrubs that pay ten dollars at the door just to watch us undress on stage or get a sneak peak at some other guy's lapdance. You came up to give me a few dollars during my dance, even asked me how I was doing when I leaned into give you the close up. I...

I'm the bad girl who loves the ballers. I love sports, I love hip-hop, and I love the boys that do both. When I got to college last year, the first thing I did was find out how to get student tickets to the football and basketball games. I had to support my team, and if I could meet the boys, even better. Ours is a big school and I never did meet any that first year, but just as final exams...
