  1. Oh, Ms. Bachmann, when will you ever STFU already?

  2. When I was a child, A Wrinkle In Time was my favorite book. Hopefully Disney will do a good job of making it a movie.

  3. Is there a story that goes with the Goff/Looking photo?

  4. DASTIUS - I guess it's a test of intelligence or ingenuity. My bet is Groff is there because he's 29, in relation to the story about having the most friends in life at that age.

    Jonathan Groff was born on March 26, 1985 = 29 years old.

    Mind you, I suspect Groff himself may have a few more than 80 friends, whether he knows them or not...... :)

  5. So Mrs. Bachman wants to institute a 100% tax on money that immigrants send back to their families in their countries of origin? OK, I'll tell you what Michelle. I'll support your idea just as soon as congress votes to impose a 100% tax on all money sent to the Caymans or Switzerland and on all companies who transfer their "headquarters" out of the country in order to avoid paying taxes.

    About the homophobic father on Facebook, what is his point exactly. Obviously most gay people have heterosexual parents. Is he afraid that everyone will somehow become gay and that no more children will ever be born if gay people are allowed to exist?

  7. @Dastius, I was thinking the same, but then thought the pic speaks to itself, nice looking guy is always nice to look at.

  8. Liam, if you are reading this please know I think you have just the right amount of meat on your bones. Too skinny or too muscle bound ins't attractive to me AT ALL. YOU are attractive to me just as you are although I do wish you would put down the cigarettes.

  9. WTF Liam Payne fat LOL? He's not skinny, neither is he fat. I'd do him in a heartbeat.

    Russia? I would have thought Greece would be #1 for anal. Yes, lame, but I had to say it.I wonder what countries rank the highest for things like S&M and bondage?That would be ? interesting to know from a sociological perspective.

  10. A Wrinkle in Time is a odd Christian tract of a book for young girls. It's appeal to young boys is about nil. The cartoon version is probably better than the book overall.

    To say you are most popular at 29 is a bit disingenuous. You might have more friends at that age, but you're also more likely to hurt people do to immaturity. And this ties together nicely: you're immature so you lose friends as you age. By the time you're a nice guy you have fewer friends. However, as a nice guy, you should be "more popular".

  11. "but then thought the pic speaks to itself"

    It would save confusion if the pics actually did speak for themselves, as in making them clickable, linking to the story they illustrate. It's easy to do.

  12. Bachmann does get that most undocumented laborers are paid under the table, right?

    You can't tax what you don't know about, idjit...

  13. Bachmann continues to add to the mounting pile of evidence that she is clinically insane.

  14. 100% tax on church revenues!

    The boy looks fat because he hasn't shaved his face. Beards, even scraggly ones, add 40 lbs. to a young guy's face.

  15. I'm with Mike: I love love love "A Wrinkle In Time." Lots of 5th & 6th grade boys read it as one of their early introductions to science fiction. And the religious (I'd say spiritual) subtext is beautifully done: the core message is to embrace joy and love fearlessly, and everything else will follow.
