Would you two just kiss already ;)

Thanks for the comments. I just thought I would share a little ditty.

After posting that one, someone unsubscribed. No biggy. It happens all the time after articles. It makes me laugh, knowing I hit a nerve or challenged an un acknowledged prejudiced. That I had done my job. I only with I could be there to see what particular line I wrote that triggered their apoplexy.

What I have learned about playing the Grinch for a bunch of years, longer than the blog, is that people get violently angry when I mess with their Christmas. It's amazing how much people NEED christmas and how they need it to be unsullied.

Don't mess with peoples Santa. Peace on earth be damned. Thems fighting words.

Then again.... it might have been the porn comment and "I'm pulling for you". :evil4: ;D

Just my thoughts of the day

When you say, "I'm pulling for you," the reader at least can know hew's in good hands.

Yes, pretty twisted he is.

Iím going to miss porn. Thanks for sharing. Iím a richer man today. I cant go back to tattered Playboy magazines. I just cant do it.

I wont miss it.  Most of the time it is about the wrong hole and I'm not into that.  It is not only not a good fit for me, the people doing it are not very good at what they do.  It lacks the human warmth and joy of the real thing.  An old Playboy was more interesting and sometimes there were good things to read.

Once porn not having any plot or theme made sense.  Those days are long gone and now it is an empty wasteland without the joys and sorrows of real human contact.

If the internet were gone a short wave connected Diner could be possible.  It would transmit as a slow scanned video signal and a receiver would listen to digital traffic coming in on another receiver.  Comment packets would come in on the receiver and then be sent to the blog/forum.  We would all have to be smart enough to use radio equipment.

I actually studied for the HAM test and learned the basic bs they teach, much of which I'd known and forgotten from school....I was all ready to test out, and then let it slide. That was before the Harbin fire, because I remember I was studying while I was  there....maybe 2014.

I really should get that done.

I never found porn to be the least bit interesting.  I went to a couple porn films in my teens on 42nd St in NY Shity.  They didn't check IDs, if you had $5 you were IN!  I was bored to tears and grossed out, and on both occasions walked out of the theater after about 15 minutes watching it.  It held absolutely no interest for me.

The static pictures in Playboy and Penthouse did better at giving me a Woody, but I still preferred most the Penthouse "letters" which described various sexual fantasies being played out.

In my Cyber World Diner Menu fantasy life,  Soros bought me the HAM radio and server in a suitcase you need for this task.  I actually could afford this IRL too.  I bet you could put together something cheaper than I can buy it commercially though.

Yes, that first pitch black theater.  I had to go through the whole loop before I got bored.  Then it was hard to move.  The weirdest thing was a 3-D film that made the rounds back then.  Nothing sensual about a naked thirty foot tall woman in 3-D glasses tinged with red and blue.  Nothing at all, at least not for me.

If I was an action figure I'd be one bored doll.  More than twice as tall as I am, is a turnoff for me.

Porn is a cottage industry now. Another internet job in the gig economy.

As I get older it's harder for me to get a good fantasy going about sex with anyone. Too much reality. Reality based people know porn isn't real. Even good quality porn, which is very rare, is fake,

And if you aren't some exceptionally physically attractive person yourself, you know that supermodels aren't lining up to jump into bed with you. Sexual excitement comes from imagining that some desirable (and perhaps new) partner is interested in getting you in the sack. Most of the time, for most people, that doesn't happen a lot.

I have a partner who is very fit and good-looking and interested in sex. But for high emo guys like me, it's easy to let resentment get in the way. I'm not against porn in principle, but it can be a crutch that men use to avoid real intimacy. If it is, that's harmful.

It looks like a lot of young guys now can't get laid, and so porn is all they've got. Or porn is easier than trying to find a real partner. Sad. That is just flat sad.

Fit and good looking doesn't do it for me, it never did even when I was pumping half the dancers in Twyla Tharp's dance company.  They also had to be young, reasonably able to at least fake an orgasm and also at least fake an interest in what I would talk about over dinner.  If they could contribute something worthwhile to the conversation that was a bonus, but as long as they nodded at the right times and looked at me with adoring eyes and didn't slobber the very expensive dinners I was buying I was IN LOVE 😍, at least for the night anyhow.  Oh, they had to be able to handle a pair of Chopsticks well also for dinner, this was important in not slobbering the food offered up down in Chinatown.

Realizing this fact of life made it much EZier for me to become a Monast.  I wouldn't enjoy sex with anyone who would have sex with me, unless i paid a shit load of money for it and I'd rather spend what I have on Preps.

So take a deep breath. Not that Eddie needs a lawyer.

He doesn't need a lawyer, and if he were tried under the current set of laws he would be found innocent.  I just try to point out the criminal nature of such things, which many others have done before me.  Probably Al Capone said it best though.

So did Smedley Butler, using other words. So has John Perkins, Chris Hedges, and plenty of other observers with whom we'd likely all agree.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

True enough, but some Diners don't even realize they are part of a parasitic mob.

Well, I recognize that a flat income tax would put me out of a job, but I would welcome the change.

Same, same, big guy. Just finished the solstice party in the - C5 Rule of survival- the single greatest survival skillsest is the dinner party.

Canadian Bush guys get this. If I may quote a stoned Joe Rogan interviewing the late Michael Ruppert, "The survival of the human race rests in the hands of perky hippy chicks. If not for them it is just a bunch of agro dudes hanging out in the woods together... and that is not a future worth surviving".
