Topic What did you have for lunch today?
Posted 26 Feb 2015 10:26

Independently owned and operated diners are the best! And the messier the burger the better.

Double hamburger with grilled buns, loaded down with sweet cole slaw, onions, pickles, mustard & ketchup, plus an order of onion rings and a sweet tea.

Each bite was a delightful mess!

I'm sure this will all be worked out soon, after Gav gets finished with the new server transfer. He warned us about this. Also Forum signatures are disappearing and I'm sure that is connected to the server transfer as well.

Topic Celibacy In Religion.
Posted 26 Feb 2015 08:20

Celibacy practiced by the Roman Catholic priesthood is Catholic doctrine, it is NOT Christian doctrine. In fact the robes and tall pointy hats worn by the Pope, Cardinals and Bishops is Catholic doctrine and many consider it to have come out of Babylonian paganism. The concept of confessing to a priest is also not considered Christian practice by most of the other Christian denominations.

I think the profile and stories should stay. In fact one profile is a friend who passed away. Its a great remembrance. Their stories are still here. I think that's what they'd want.

I know if something happened to me I'd want my stories to remain. I write them to be read and enjoyed.

And in some cases people come back after a year or more away. There are all kinds of reasons for taking an absence.

Maybe when it comes on HBO, Cinemax or something and there isn't a good ballgame on TV.

But I must say, I am very disappointed in Miami Vice's Sonny Crockett for letting his daughter do a titty shakin' and showin' sex movie. Shameful! What kind of example is he setting for all the other vice detectives?

Posted 24 Feb 2015 08:07

Seriously folks, in the USA, with the often gross overreaction of our legal system, you can get arrested for that and labeled as a sex offender. We're so screwed up that District Attorneys go after teens for sexting and try to charge them as adults.

You do know our prosecution system is run by politicians. So DO NOT expect fair justice.

Topic Have You Ever Insulted A Stranger Because of Their Looks?
Posted 24 Feb 2015 07:57

No. Only a small minded, cruel, bigoted asshole does something like that. If we witness someone being a jerk like that to someone else, we should speak up. Bigoted jerks should know that most people in society do not accept their cruelness.

I once had a stranger insult my accent. Funny, I didn't say anything about how his looks changed to being pale as a sheet and the tears that welled up in his eyes when I placed my arm gently around his shoulders and told him I would kindly shove his testicles down his throat. I am not always as good as I should be at turning the other cheek.

Truthfully, I just grab whatever water bottle is available. At one time I would drink from the water fountain at the gym, but after I noticed how unsanitary some people or I quit doing that.

I usually wear just gray gym shorts and old t-shirts with the sleeves torn off to work out in and I wear old sneakers. I try to remember to bring a clean towel, but sometimes I forget so I often have to rent one from the gym. I generally like two towels, one to wipe myself off and one to wipe off the equipment. I get really pissed off at people who don't wipe off the equipment when they are done and have been known to tell them that they better do it the next time. The gym I use now has paper towel dispensers placed conveniently around the gym along with sanitizer dispensers, so there is no excuse for people to not clean off the equipment when they are finished.

Topic Tanning Bed Awareness and the effects it can have!! STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!
Posted 22 Feb 2015 16:33

I live in the deep south where it is warm most of the year. Growing up, my parents had a swimming pool and we lived on a large lake. So I was always swimming and going shirtless in the boat, water skiing and jet skiing. Spending so much time outside I would get very tan. Now at age 29, I've already twice had to have basil cell skin cancer cut off of me. The last time left a 3-inch scar across the top of my shoulder. The first time was on my head, near my face. All of that was from the regular sun, I can only imagine how much worse it would be from using tanning beds.

Buz, I have seen quite a few poems accepted on lush that were made up of several haiku.

I've mentioned that before. A traditional Haiku is only 3 lines. That is it. If its longer than that then its not a traditional Haiku.

If you write a poem based on the 3 lined meter style of a Haiku with multiple stanzas, as if it is several Haikus, making up a longer poem, then its just a longer poem based on that metered format. But do make it long enough to be worthy of submitting. Front page space is precious and its not fair to people who spend a lot of time and effort creating stories and other kinds of poems to be bounced off by something very short that took 5 minutes to do.

Plus, I would like to state for everyone to know, there is no kind of vendetta going on against any member on Lush. Our verification queue has been bombarded with submissions. We're desperately trying to get your stories verified. The current wait time may be much longer than any of you are used to. If we ask any of you to please be patient or to temporarily slow down any submissions, it is NOT a personal attack, insult or anything negative at all. Please don't misconstrue things. We just need some breathing room to get the job done. We are all just members like all of you and we have jobs and families to try and spend time with. When we get this busy and submissions bombard us, we have no time at all to write any of our own stories or poems. We're just frantically verifying and trying to catch up. This like anything else will pass. Please be patient.

A Haiku is a traditional Japanese poem style that is only 17 syllables long. It is written in three lines. The first line is 5 syllables, the second line is 7 syllables and the third line is 5 syllables. So it is a very short poem of only 3 lines. It has become popular in English.

Being that it is so short , it is not allowed as a submitted poem here on Lush. We have a thread here in the Poet's Corner where members can post their Haikus.

You can see samples of Haiku poems at the above link. You are invited to post Haikus there if you wish.

Topic cigarettes - smoking
Posted 21 Feb 2015 07:50

Cigars can cause lip , mouth, and throat cancer even if you dont inhale. Lot more tabacco in cigars in than cigarettes especially if you prefer the big fat ones.

One can definitely get cancer from smoking cigars. Also chewing tobacco and snuff can be bad to cause lip or mouth cancer. And let's not forget second hand smoke.

But then again how about all the additives in food, steroids in meat, insecticides on vegetables. And who knows what will be discovered about genetically altered foods in the future. We do know that cigarettes contain tobacco that was genetically changed to make it more addictive in order to enhance the profits of the tobacco companies.

Did y'all know that much more damage has been done to the Gulf of Mexico by the insecticide and fertilizer run off coming down the Mississippi River than happened from the BP oil spill. That is all thanks to the massive corn belt and wheat growing in the midwest, which is protected by some of the most powerful lobbyist groups in Washington, D.C.

With cigarettes & tobacco you have a cancer causing product that also takes massive amounts of fertilizer and insecticides to produce. That run off is draining into the Atlantic Ocean.

Topic Time to Ban and Burn confederate flags
Posted 21 Feb 2015 07:20

This thread is getting redundant, plus when I see some of the hateful things posted it makes me want to puke. Just talking about banning something gives it fresh life and publicity. Let sleeping dogs lie and die a slow forgotten death not to ever be repeated.

Some really awful bigoted prejudices have been revealed by some people on all sides of the issue. Pathetic!

Threatening and evil things posted about the president is disgusting. Whether you're a fan or not show some decency and class. Disagreement is one thing and okay but wishing someone death or harm is unacceptable.

Topic Time to Ban and Burn confederate flags
Posted 20 Feb 2015 07:39

Banning something always gives new life to it. If you live in a nation that has true freedom of speech then you're going to have to put up with things you don't like or agree with. but you have the right to say so.

It is not illegal to burn a flag in the USA, not even the Stars and Stripes, as part of a protest.

Slavery is and always has been evil and has been with us throughout history. It should never be acceptable. Probably everyone, if they could do the research back far enough, would find slave ancestors as well as slave owners in their ancestral heritage. Unfortunately it still exists. It still is very common in parts of Africa. Plus, unofficial forms of slavery exists all over the world, even here in the USA, especially in the sex and prostitution trade. It exists in sweat shop labor, and slave wages in foreign factories, farms and plantations. Stronger efforts should be made to stamp it out.

Unfortunately broken hearts and jealousy fuel great creativity. A lot of the greatest literature, both in the novel and poem form was born out of that. We all can name more hit songs that are about sad love than we care to. A lot of great art comes out of those emotions too. Just remember that your writing here on Lush needs to be erotic or romantic love or a combination of that.

OK...I'm quick to admit I do not know the technicalities of writing style(s), but I did figure out the 5 - 7 - 5 thing with haikus and have seen some rater creative writing(s) in that format ... better than just rhyming for rhyming sake. Thus ... why / what is the problem with haikus...?? dontknow

Accepting 3 line poems would overwhelm the front page and it would not be fair people who write stories and serious poems. No one would receive significant prime front page time for their newly submitted work. Not to mention it would probably hurt overall site readership. Most people come here to read erotic stories. We really aren't looking for quick and easy. We desire authors to put some serious effort and thought into producing quality submissions that people want to read.

Like we've said before there is a thread in this Poet's Corner set up for Haikus.
