My Ugly Dress

Some people simply will not say Yes to the dress.

Skinny and Single

We can still be friends, right? No?

So I bought this “cute” orange dress and learned some of my friends think it’s fugly. They were with me when I bought it and said nothing at the time.

They created signs, hats and costumes to protest my wearing of the dress. They littered the streets, looted businesses and shattered windows. They signed petitions, they whined and found safe spaces. They gathered by the thousands; burning flags, attacking police while chanting “Not My Dress.”

They went on twitter and facebook and name-called each other day and night. One group made the dress sound “cute”, another called it “slutty”. Do I impose a 90 day ban on wearing the dress to prove a point? Do I go to a higher authority for a ruling on the dress?

Sigh, life is way more than my…

Anticipated downtime

Says my Web host:

Our Network Operations team will be performing a proactive scheduled maintenance starting at 10:30PM Pacific Standard Time on February 8th, 2017 in order to further improve network reliability. This is expected to last up to four hours, and will result in server unavailability of up to 45 minutes.

Once the maintenance has begun, please avoid adding or modifying databases on your MySQL server, as we will be unable to process any database-related changes during this time (and those changes may be lost).

That’s half past midnight here in Central time. I’m hoping I’m asleep by then and won’t even notice the downtime.

Secret naturism… it exists…but why? And is it worth it?

I’ve always been quite out front about it, and some people don’t actually run screaming from the room when they hear it.

Bare Thoughts

This is something in the online naturist community that always got my attention. And not in the judging kind of way, but more in an eyebrow raising kind of way. The secret naturist. And one in particular. The one that’s a secret naturist to his or hers partner ( mostly his ).


We all have a naturist friend that can’t talk openly about being a naturist because of family, work, religion or law ( in some countries, social nudity is against the law ). But what about naturists that can’t even be open against their partner about it? Why is that? And is it worth it to lie about it? This is something that fascinates me a while now. As many of you already know, I’m very open about being a naturist and naturism in general. And I think everyone in my life knows it aswell. Friends, family, colleagues. Even…

And this is what we’re left with

From “Hell Racer” by Dystopic:

The car was the one beautiful thing in his life. His apartment was a junkheap, and his ration allocation was barely livable. He could only just manage enough energy credits to keep the thing running. But it was all worth it to John, it was the one thing that made life interesting for him.

“Race time in 20 minutes,” the announcer’s voice came over the loud speakers. It wasn’t an actual race of course, for safety regulations forbid real racing. Instead, contestants would enter their personal attributes and their car’s specifications into the computer, and it would determine the winner in an interactive display. The winner, of course, was always whoever won in privilege points. John was always last place.

Who knew there’d still be white guys in this fabulous future?

You’ll want to dodge this one

I’m sure it’s possible to make a film worse than this, but I don’t even want to imagine it:

How bad is it? This bad:

Apparently, the film is so awful that Paramount Pictures has delayed its release three times and taken the odd step of booking a $115 million impairment charge, Automotive News reports. A write-down, in other words.

According to Wikipedia, the budget was $125 million. It would have been easier to get several stacks of $100 bills and set them on fire.
