I was reading this story about the girl who got punished for wearing sneakers to her graduation , on the MP, and wanted to talk about it (I’m banned on Jez so...).
As for the linked story, I do think the girl in question was kind of intentionally pushing it, but of course, dress codes are wildly sexist so I’m kind of in favor of everyone pushing those boundaries anyway.
I also wanted to tell a...View more »
Quick mock up (lights ziptied in place) of what I’m thinking. Started clean-up today. Don’t really have much time for it since I have a lot of other stuff piled up that needs to be taken care of ASAP... but I couldn’t resist getting a glimpse of what it’ll look like when I’m done.
Popped the old windshield out and poked around a bit with a screwdriver. Rust-wise seems more solid than I...View more »

El 6 de noviembre de 1971, Estados Unidos realizó su prueba nuclear subterránea más poderosa hasta la fecha. La explosión de cinco megatones detonó a más de un kilómetros por debajo de la remota isla de Amchitka, en Alaska. La explosión levantó el terreno unos 7 metros durante unos segundos.
No sólo eso, tras el test,...View more »
Since I don’t have authorship privileges at lanesplitter, I figured I would ask everyone in oppoland.
I’m considering getting a bike, but was curious what kind of costs go in to a good set of gear.
First I need to take an MSF to see if I even want to ride, but assuming I do and I enjoy it, I’d want to get myself outfitted with proper SAFE gear. I kind of like my skin, and would like to keep it....View more »
Did something really impulsive after ending my freshman year of college, I order a couple of dozen Hot Wheels (sold in a lot) as a sort of therapy. It's a mix of goodies, half of cars are what I don't have; the other half which I already do. Since having everything would be shipped at a very agreeable price, I leaped at the offer; there are some cars which are my grails.
The cars are from a...View more »
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old Latina who ran an unabashedly progressive campaign and unseated a powerful incumbent, officially became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. That’s the national context. But closer to home, Ocasio-Cortez represents the district where I grew up, and her victory is the kind of thing I’ve waited for a long time to see. So as work let out for...View more »
My dad was a large, brawny wrestling coach, known to his students and friends alike as “Big I” (the moniker is even on his gravestone). He started cooking rather late in life (I was already in grade school), but once he started, having people over to marvel at his culinary creations—like deep-dish pizza made in a cast-iron skillet, with real Caesar salad, down to the raw egg in the dressing,...View more »
After nine days in the Celebrity Big Brother House, Rodrigo Alves, aka the Human Ken Doll, has been evicted for “incidents,” raising the question: Has the Human Ken Doll gone too far?
Is this-a bit much?
Is using the n-word not once, but twice, on television utterly indefensible, and then trying to defend it even worse?
Or is it that, at age 35, swinging a liquid filled condom over your...View more »
CNN Newsroom’s Brooke Baldwin ended her Friday afternoon program with a monologue, giving voice to survivors of sexual assault sharing their truth in the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Brett Kavanaugh.
“We all have our stories,” Baldwin said, voice steady as her eyes became glassy with tears. “The spiked drink. Waking up on the cold tiles of a hotel bathroom floor. The...View more »
