I mean, the sea lion is kind of an asshole by following people into their homes. But yeh. I have grown to strongly dislike every reference to it.

I like seals. As in the animal.

They're like adorable water-puppies.

Shall I be the dick who mentions that seals and sea lions are two different animals?  Actually I think technically I already have...fuck.

Today, I learned that Little Rock, my hometown, is literally over 10x bigger than the city in which I currently live in terms of total land (and water) area.  302.5km^2 vs 27km^2.

God, I miss that city.

Oh I know.

I just felt like saying I like seals.

Again, adorable water puppies.

It's not about size, it's how you use it.

Seals will sometimes follow you, a bit like a dog or puppy.

I'm a little tired right now and I might regret even typing this post later, but you don't know 'till you do it I guess.

I figured out why I think some people who claim they present a position they don't actually agree with out of some kind of "devil's advocacy" or "intellectual exercise" are actually just arguing their own position. It's in the wording.

Example: Someone (let's call them Final Rolemodel) is currently partaking in an Internet conversation over racism in video games, and they feel that "being a devil's advocate" is called for. If they ask the opposition "why do you think it's bad to allow gamers to have racist dialogue options towards these nonwhite characters in this game that's not set on a historical Earth period where racism was rampant", then I, the person reading the conversation, could conceivably buy that they're just arguing from that position out of an interest to advance thought or whatever. But if they instead said "why do you think black characters should be treated with kiddy gloves" then at that point I'd start raising an eyebrow.

I am amazed at how bad Fifty Shades of Grey is. Like honestly so astonished that the disgust at the poor writing is not the strongest emotion I feel when reading it.

Though I have only read random lines as I was trying to find an appropriate quote that I could use in a certain situation (I swear that I only had good intentions) but it's just simply impossible to find quote that would be worth the salvage efforts...

I mean, it's not even erotic. The characters try to talk dirty but they fail so badly that it ends up being embarrassing.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

How come whenever Russian Spambot comes by, they don't post in Confidential Confessions?  It's the only subforum that's not touched (minus Lox Box).

I wonder what booze tastes like in a world without corn.

Most of western civilization made booze without it until 1492.
