I don’t care if he slept with three thousand women, a donkey and a 1987 Volvo wagon. He is an admirable athlete. If Nike sponsors him, they are sponsoring his athleticism, not his wang. Please go elsewhere with your self righteous blah blah blah because personally I don’t care what you think. I’m going to go buy a new Nike tshirt for the gym.
And two pair of pants
Discussed this today with my wife as we passed yet another plastic bunch of flowers and a homemade cross at the side of the road. Why do people do this? Maybe I, we (I’m dragging her into it as.well) am/are evil or sociopaths, but if someone hung themself, you wouldn’t put a plaque up on the branch… If someone had a heart attack in bed you wouldn’t memorialize the pillows. What happened with flowers on a grave where the corpse lies patiently awaiting the zombie apocalypse and a poorly written, over-glowing review of their life (“everyone loved him!!!”) In the paper?
When will it end? If there is a mid air collision will we have geosynchronous hot air balloons marking the spot? Will water in which a person has been eaten by a shark collected, frozen and put on display?
I don’t get humans.
My bad. Apparently I have been referring (to the chagrin of some more sensitive colleagues) to “homeless people” as HOBOs when in fact most of them are properly referred to as Tramps (who will work if forced) or worse yet, BUMS who do not work.. I never knew there was such a wealth of knowledge available on them.
Sorry Geek Dad but this just goes to show you that humans are silly pack animals. Of course we are happiest if we grow up with plenty of social connections but hate to tell you that says nothing about geek lifestyle. I fact, those if us who are geeks grow up with less social connections because we are fewer in numbers than the plentitudes who go en-masse to football games and pep rallies. And no, no matter how cool being smart and geeky is nowadays, band geeks are still laughed at by everyone, including true, academic geeks.
I know, I know, as a parent I should be dismayed if not concerned at the new cover to B & V’s digest for October but I am not. Every single mother and late 30s / 40s cougar in north america dress up all slutty at Halloween nowadays so it’s not like it isn’t prevalent. Who am i to tell two fifty or sixty year old high school students how to dress? Also if anything this cover has made me at least temporarily change my preference to Betty after who knows how many years I have wanted a bit of fun with Veronica.
