So at the dinner table, Daughter 1 asks what tv show everyone would want to live in. We go around the table and the last to answer is Daughter 2. She says Joy of Painting so she can paint with a baby squirrel in her pocket like Bob Ross.

Am I the only one who thinks at least some articles about weird/sexy/offensive Halloween costumes might be some kind of native advertising?

Either way, I have just realised that Jesus is God's... Skinsona, I suppose. Which of course would mean that this overall situation is basically a furry Inception sort of thing.

Do you think there's a parallel reality where actual furry anthro characters live and instead of fursonas they have humansonas?

The Easter Bunny is Jesus Christ's fursona.

Of course not, Aslan is Jesus' fursona.

I had no idea that Skylanders was related to the Spyro franchise.

I have been aware of both but haven't played either. It's just that I was bored and watched a bit of the Skylanders cartoon on Netflix and noticed that the dragon is called Spyro and quick wiki check confirmed it to not just be a coincidence.

And here I was thinking that loot boxes in the form of whores were a thing long before Overwatch was but a shapely bum in orange tights in every angry and frustrated neckbeard's eye. Ah, well there go all of my hopes and dreams.

First of all, don't forget the Orthodox nuns.

Second, it's more that during the Victorian era when doublespeak and false modesty were the thing "nun" and "nunnery" were slang for prostitute and whorehouse respectively. And during medieval era many old prostitutes ended up as nuns (Though they were treated really badly and kept from interacting with anyone outside the monastery.) as a type of retirement.

There was? Fuck my nipples, I really was born in the wrong generation.

Oh wait, does that mean nuns are the loot boxes of prostitutes? You know, because you can't tell if they're actually hot until you get them out of their habit. Which would mean they actually figured out how to combine gambling and prostitution into one activity. Holy shit, that's absolutely ingenious. It's no fucking wonder the Catholic Church is as rich and perverted as it is.

Nowadays that may be true. There was a time when they were the same.

The head of a nunnery is basically the opposite of a pimp.

That's probably what inspired the Wright brothers. "What if we did this, but with wood instead of paper, and make it like... *Inspects folded piece of A4 paper* ...three times bigger?"

I was reading a certain erotic story and at some point it turns out that the French guy in the story has been circumcised. And here I am thinking that there's no implication of them being Jewish so is this yet another Yankee writer who doesn't know how rare circumcision is in other countries.

Also found out elsewhere that paper planes as a toy predate the invention of the plane.

Obviously they weren't known as "planes" in the early days.

It depends on how many classes you take per semester.  The typical range for a full-time student is between 8-12 credit hours split roughly evenly between Fall and Spring semesters.  I know my typical semester of university has ran me around $9,000 US or above (I admit, I need to check my statement to be totally sure, but I'm in the ballpark).  Of course, I'm a bit luckier than most because I get several grants due to various circumstances (no expected familial contribution, living on my own, studying full time, etc) that pay for around half to two-thirds of my tuition.  Still, though, the rest needs to be covered by subsidized student loans, which will likely be well in excess of $10,000 by the time I'm done at the end of the year.

And I did the smart thing and went to community college, first, to get my general education credits out of the way.


So, I got my personal, actual numbers.  I'm taking 5 classes, this semester.  It is also my last semester of university.  All told, after fees and other nickle-and-dime bullshit, I'm in for about $8,600 US in tuition fees.  That's not counting books or any other additional expenses.  This semester will also see about $1,400 US tacked on to my student loans.  So, multiply that out by two, and you're looking at about $17,000 for a year's worth of university-level US tuition, assuming 5 courses in both Spring and Fall, and with no Summer classes.
