Topic Elliot Rodger kills 6, injures 13 others. Is it rape culture, guns or something else?
04 Jul 2014 11:35
Women, actually waitresses of a diner in Colorado wearing "loaded inanimate object" at their waist. Them and their patrons, are only exercising their right, .. the article says. That the US have NOT an inanimate object (gun) problem was established here in other threads. It is just a finger happy problem. Read it here.. if you wish!
The diner's name? Shooters. As a nod to gun policies.. as some have said here, it has become a joke and it has desensitized people.
Make sure not to bet too skimpy on the tip... if the finger pulls the trigger on the inanimate object another inanimate but smaller object may come out.
Topic When Lush friends just disappear.
28 Jun 2014 20:56
That says it all for me. You think you know someone and then they are gone. Who knows why, and why they would not say something on their way out. Sad, but I am not going to worry about it. Life and Lush goes on :)
Great way to deal with it, but I would add... You never know someone EVER, till the moment of need come.
Topic When Lush friends just disappear.
28 Jun 2014 20:39
I agree, it's absolutely sad. Especially when you had exchanged thoughts with the LS internet friend. Certainly not everyone would terminate a relationship with just an empty silence... but hey, it is still a huge part of internet behavior.
... about enriching the profile with this pledge: In the event of me deleting my account, you my LS friend can rest assured that you will notified.
If you put the pledge, you would probably never leave without a goodbye anyway.. but the pledge its for the friends.
We cannot fix the past but can always do something for the future... if we wish.

When we start to create rules on anything we lose the human side of things. Than if a rule is created it should also be enforced?
The reason I'm here is to read some erotic writing.. on this site, if you wish you can leave a note to the author.. most time I do.. but no way I must get a thank you for reading it.. after all it was my pleasure to do so.. especially if I was entertained.
I believe I got a thank you from only two peoples... (RUDE haaa no it's a joke) it's fine. I didn't expect it either.

sourdough bread, sliced and toasted
mozzarella cheese, shredded

I must admit its sounds deliciously hearty and I’m assuming that is your real pic.
Time ago I was not a fan of fried eggs to complement a sandwich but my views have changed. I have a batch of sourdough that is now two days old to make focaccia height bread. I can definitely try your sandwich. I also must admit that I might skip the bacon, and I might try also to pair it with sharp provolone cheese. Thanks.

No place for guns in a civilized society, and as long as our society is filled with guns, we will never be civilized!
I like this, even if is wishful thinking.
I believe that no one should own a gun because they can… unless they must because of their line of work.

14 Jun 2014 20:17
Only one? Than I'll go "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" hmn now that I think of... Lush is about the same
Please forgive this my other mention. "Going to Extremes" was a show about American students attending an unconventional medical school on the tropical island of "Jantiques" fictitious name. It was filmed on location in Jamaica. The scenery was what you may imagine, plus coupled with the great writing.. to me it was a fresh and original new show. Unfortunately it looked like I was one of the only few to think so. It remained in my memory after all of this time.
Topic What do you tip at a restaurant and how is that figured?
12 Jun 2014 10:32

Topic The Gun Control Debate Thread.
11 Jun 2014 19:01
June 11, 2014 cover story of the NY Daily News.
No need really for much discussion as we have seen plenty of it on this subject on here and other threads. Besides the result of much discussions point to the fact that many do not feel that there's a gun problem in the US.
Pres. Obama cites Australia’s gun confiscation program as possible example for the US.
In Tasmania, AU about 18 years ago there was a mass shooting in which a single man killed 35 people (at that moment) and wounded tens of others. Upon the overwhelming support (95%) of the Australia population the 1996 National Firearms Agreement was passed. Also the government offered a gun buyback program. Yes, many who turned the guns in wouldn’t probably use them.. but if you do pull the trigger a bullet would come out. The result was that the total guns in the households were cut by more than half. Australia has not had any similar horrific incident ever since and lets hope it stays that way.
So, even for the die-hard that say "it's not the gun that kills" it is still a great result that was achieved.
As I have said in other threads it will not be supported in the US. Sandy Hook in Newtown CT made lots of news because of the young children. Few cares or even know that less known events are happening at a rate of once per week. Horrendous and other definitions are an understatement.

As far as the current articles go, I think her photos were tastefully done, but again, if you don't want negative press, don't write a book....don't lay on a couch for Vanity Fair...etc.
and why right at this moment? Not so good for someone who wanted to go away from all of it? Again and again.. money talks and bla bla bla.
A mistress is a woman, other than the spouse. So "mistress" rules always apply.

1. I’m loyal all around, always been.. especially on friendship, (no.. it’s a curse)
2. I eat dark chocolate.. Hmn, OK. I can have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, oh and in between.
3. I’m a sucker for expression of love; give it in a daily occasion or in a movie, I try to keep a straight face but embarrass myself by tearing copiously.
4. At times I read a story or poem and do not leave comments and or vote. Yes, it’s baaad. I'm correcting it.
5. Sometime I joke too much. I'm controlling it.
1. I am a bisexual ( congrats lush world you guys know first!)
2. I am the bastard daughter whose father abandoned her
3. I am fighting depression it's a hard battle but I'm trying
4. I'm a virgin! For those of you who know me that'll be hard to believe but I honestly am
5. I'm petrified of talking in front of people or really even talking to a lot of people.
Well those are my top five. Please comment or share yours.
- Bisexual? Checking the books here… hmn not a crime. Hmm, how do you know?
- Bastard? Other terminologies: Child born (no child fault) out of wedlock. Hmnnn wait, better: Love Child.
The bastard, as a despicable person it’s him that chose not to be in your life.
-Depression? Keep on trying, never succumb. Hope by you being here helps with it also.
-Virgin? You’re 18. Yes, you have dishonored the “sweet 16” rule and for that you should be publicly lynched in a HS gym, so to teach the new students. Where were you that night when all the boys (and girls) were looking for you? Again, hey.. you’re 18. Since you are disgracefully still a virgin might as well maybe hold till you feel very comfortable with someone.
- Petrified.. lots of peoples? Congrats, you fit right in. You may find that lots of peoples are.. unless you’re a blabber mouth, it is an acquired practice.

22 May 2014 21:25
Time ago when I used to drink it, I would choose only Pepsy. It looks like that coke so far has won in this thread. I like to however share the following.
Years ago at a fair, I participated into a contest to guess correctly which one were you offered to drink.. Coke or Pepsy. By far most peoples were not correctly guessing, so I went up thinking that instead I will be definitely guessing it right. I was wrong. I didn’t 3 out of 4, so the only right guess was just luck.

Topic If you could remember literally everything, would you want to?
21 May 2014 18:34
Absolutely yes. Be able to remember (hyperthymesia?) and recall past event and experiences? Oh yes, I would. It’s my life.
I remember the really great and real awful events regardless without any help of a super memory, so why not remember it all. It would only help further into the present.
The "I want to forget" does not help at all. How can it be? Also, I cannot change it. It's how I interact and forgive myself of others (not forget) with that horrible experience that it's helpful.
I cannot see why everyone would not want it.

Topic What's on your culinary bucket list?
17 May 2014 22:26
I want to get a food dehydrator and make my own dried fruit (banana chips, apple slices, pineapple chunks, etc) because it's so much cheaper and healthier than buying the prepared stuff in the store.
Yes, you're right, also because you can buy organic fruits. A food dehydrator is convenient and pretty cheap to buy. If you however have a gas oven with a pilot light you can do it there. I used to dry the fruits slices and they came out good, just remember to turn them. I no longer have that oven and the newer one has electronic ignition.
I miss the old one as I used to also make yogurt and many other uses... with just the warmth from the pilot light. The lowest temperature of the newer oven is still too hot for many uses.

It is happened. Well at least we did talk to each other.. briefly.

Topic Amazing Vid. Family cat saves 4 year old boy from dog attack.
15 May 2014 18:53
Why are they video taping this whole thing - even two cameras?
The video is from always running security cameras. Without the cameras recording the fast incident the boy’s family would have not found out of their hero cat… and us included. That dog was strong to be able to drag that boy, he could have done more. Sad occurrence, but I agree with the law if it was an unjustified attack. The website has also a picture of the boy stitched up.
