I've watched many seasons of Monsters Inside Me (parasites) and Dr. G: Medical Examiner (celebrity coroner extraordinaire), so I strongly believe that I am something of an expert in this area. My diagnosis is indeterminate, and I would like to refer you to your PCP for further evaluation. Please let us know what happens!

Oh! Consider it! And watch this to get the reference or this friendship is over.
I watched it, so let's be friends.  :p

I never saw that movie, I ought to track it down and watch it.  
:eek:

Consider that your homework. You can rent it on Amazon for $2.99. I'll send you some quarters.

The backs of my hands...the wounds have to start somewhere, I guess.  
That is bizarre. I was definitely expecting palms. Are they relatively located in the same place?

Northeast of I-71 is supposed to the worst, so it makes sense you have bad weather. I am sure I will be able to go to work, which makes this very late.

The one time they did shut down due to weather I showed up and worked without know it had been.
That is a bummer! I hope you got paid at least.

Evidently, using Madiba to refer to Mandela is the hip thing.

Noah yelled it out in a strange moment after his post-game interview.

Goofs.

Also apparently available on Netflix for streaming to TV, or at least that's what the website indicates...  Been a while since I watched that one...

Isn't not like I am transgendered or gender dysmorphic or anything. I just swear that .gif is simply who I think I was born to be.

I have no idea who it is. I can't wait to find out. She is probably a Disney / Nickelodeon product. I do have some 14 year old girl trapped inside of me somewhere. And she isn't scared, she is just really vivacious.

And like way cute.  
THIS makes me view that .gif in a totally different way.  Now I can't stop laughing...

But if it's the stigmata, they're just going to accuse me of doing it myself.  Just ask Padre Pio:

Hold off on sending me money until I confirm I can't watch it free...

See the photo of Padre Pio.  They are roughly there on my hand, but closer to my wrists.

I usually find singers who do hand movements to be annoying (especially rock/metal guys), but this I find acceptable.
I dunno why, but it is awesome. Shiny is a swell gal. I am lucky.
And I can't stop laughing about what is happening in the background.

LOL!!!
You got some bunny in the back crunking while letting me know to be fun. Then black dude glides in reppin' cred with some move pulled outta rhythm gymnastics only to reveal a George W. thoroughly enjoying himself behind it all.

That, or I am beyond tired.

I never heard of that until today.  Where does it come from?   
I'm not in the twitterverse or whatever. I have no idea. But all these white people in America are going to make sure I know about it before I fall asleep tonight.

Ah! More accurate to where the nails probably pierced Our Lord (or so I've heard).

It's not fatigue.  That is exactly what it is.

I think it's obvious that you need to start wearing fingerless gloves for awhile and just see what happens.

And Shiny, your current avatar freaked me out. The first 35 milliseconds I saw of it caused me to think a skeleton from closet appeared on the forum.

Maybe this is just the miracle I need to kick start my Mortheism religious movement.  
Come up with a catchy slogan I can yell and I'll be the first martyr.

Yes. That's exactly what this is. It's so clear.

He needs to come up with a middle name first.

As was made evident in the thread where I hoped to have us all create an OCNet creed, I'm not so good with this sort of stuff.  Do you have a slogan to suggest?  You can be the Protonorm, a vessel of election to take my name to all the internetz.

With such miracles, attracting followers won't be that hard.  But I will need to figure out how to get people to surrender all their wealth to me and gift me with a fleet of Aston Martins (like Osho, but better), etc.

You should be charismatic, of course. You should also have a clear enemy. Nothing unites people faster than a shared hatred for a third object or person, so pick something that you can really market... Something that will make people feel like they have the moral high ground, like shopping on Thanksgiving. The wallets will open to you.

Feel free to use my prolific work on this site as a target for your criticisms. "Do you see how the frivolity of this age has corrupted people? Do you see to what depths of stupidity and narcissism people sink to? What muck of flippancy they roll around in like a pig before the slaughter!"  That sort of thing.

Consider adopting the name Hezekiah the Thrice-Blessed. It sounds so legit.

This would be at odds with the currently available stories, I'm afraid...

"One day the monks wanted to test Abba Hezekiah, so they gathered for the customary meal after liturgy and began to question him. 'Abba, I have heard that you throw small stones at people in the market and then blame it on the vendor next to you' one said. 'Yes, it is as you say' Hezekiah replied.  And another one began, 'We have heard it said that you are secretly a self-indulgent mirth maker, and that your asceticism is merely a facade.'   Hezekiah nodded that it was so. The plan of the monks was not working as expected, so they boldly asked even more exaggerated questions.  'Is it not true that you are quite ill of head, and curse your shoes for not fitting and your clothes for being too loose?'  Hezekiah sighed and said, 'I cannot deny what you say.' This went on for several more minutes, and finally one of the oldest among the old men said: 'Well tell us, then, oh wicked man, if all these things are true, why don't you just go off and start your own religion? Clearly you are not a follower of Christ!'  At these words St. Hezekiah turned red with chafed fury, and said: 'Do not dare say such things! You may call me mad, you may call me a sinner, you may say I lack sobriety, but I will not allow you to say that I should start my own religion! I have but one religion: asceticism; and I have but one Lord: Christ! Take your polytheisms and henotheisms and mortheisms and be gone with them!'  After that many of the old men went away ashamed, but once the sting of the rebuke wore off they were greatly edified." - St. Hezekiah the Thrice-Blessed

Why only a better show than iCarly on Nickelodeon:


And the girl on the right, Ariana Grande, is a very talented singer, her debut album came out this year and it is probably my favorite...

Ariana Grande - The Way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sV0S8qWSy0

(Mac is a loser, but is it possible for a girl to be beyond cute? She's not technically gorgeous, but just so dang adorable)

The irony being the show was cancelled so the main star can do her singing career, and who was the one that usurped her in popularity? Why Ariana...









I would imagine taking her on a date would be a blast.

She is almost a splitting image of my girlfriend in the 8th grade Sasha.

She skirts the fine line of jailbait, but she is 20 or 21?

I wish I was kidding, but I'm not.  I have these circular spots of dry skin on my hands: no amount of any sort of moisturizer will heal them, even if the rest of my hands is normal, and the dry spots are breaking open, bleeding from time to time.  I decided to post it here hoping that bragging about stigmata would make it go away just in case it was a sign of my own holiness.  
My guess is ringworm (dermatophytosis).

I wish death upon all motorists in Cincinnati.
Worst city ever for driving under the best conditions.
I would like to enter a nominee.  Was once on a bus in Sofia, Bulgaria.  The bus driver missed our hotel, and decided to do a U-turn on a six-lane road.  (The road was not marked as six lanes, but it did have six lanes of traffic.)  He stopped traffic in both directions.  Except that he didn't actually stop anything at all -- there was still traffic going in both directions on one side of him, and traffic going in both directions on the other side of him.  It defied the laws of physics.  All of which I guess might indicate that these are not the worst drivers in the world but the best, so I technically don't know which I'm nominating for.

Either way, two decades later I had my first experience driving in Sofia.  I really don't want to do it again.  Cabs, buses, and streetcars are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Well the show ran since the start of 2010 and she would have been 18...so yeah.
When Victorious first aired in 2010 she would have been 16.

What are you going on about? Age of consent varies by State, I'm staring at 16 from where I sit. And that has little to do with comments made about people rather actions taken with them.
