the_dark_side's Eve 6 Yoda

Not In My House.

kitaloon talks about the true nature of LJ hacking:

"The thing is, people who *do* hack seem to treat it as the virtual equivalent of TP-ing someone's house, when in fact it's more like BURNING THE HOUSE DOWN and then doing an EVIL VICTORY DANCE on the ashes. And then performing a dramatic reading of shitty Russian poetry.

I love the internet, but it somehow doesn't seem to cultivate good manners, on the whole.

heavens to betsy!

An imaginary fly on the wall at eHarmony.com.

As per NJ, eHarmony must make a parallel service available to the LGBT community.

The bad news? As capulet_rose observes,

The name just makes it sound like they've been reading too many science journals. In a very roundabout way, they may have been inspired by Chemistry.com when figuring out a name. Hmm...

Context (in comments at rm's journal) is casting for eHarmony.com: The Movie.

Look out for the handbasket behind you.

wishwords has a sharp tongue to go with her sharp pen:

I'm expecting a delivery today, so when the doorbell rang, I opened the door. There stood two ladies who wanted just a couple minutes of my time to share the joy of Christ's word with me. I told them that actually I was working and didn't have the time. One of them asked what I do. I said, "I'm a ghost writer for Richard Dawkins."

Posted in its entirety. Context is sharing the joy of her acerbic wit. Flocked, QWP.

Lysol as Douche

I know medicine was weird back in the day, and I know concern for women's health took a backseat to aesthetics back in the day, but what the fuck made anyone think, "Oh, this chemical cleans floors so well, I think I'll toss some in my vagina?!" I see the connection between "Lysol sterilizes floors" and "A sterilized womb has no babies," but I just stop when I consider that it's a caustic effing chemical. Like...wow.

salmon_pink can't know everything:

So, I'm making my way through season two of Torchwood, and I'm watching the episode with the lad from 1918. And my thoughts basically go like this -

"Huh, he kind of looks like Matthew Lewis, only a bit older."

"Wow, he even has the Mancunian accent. Oooh, spooky."

"Okay, this is starting to weird me out. He looks so much like him. Only a couple of years older."

"WHAT IS HAPPENING?! IT'S A TIME PARADOX! THEY'VE SOMEHOW EMPLOYED MATTHEW LEWIS, ONLY IT'S MATTHEW LEWIS FROM A FEW YEARS IN THE FUTURE!! OH GOD, HE'S GOING TO WATCH THIS EPISODE AND BREAK THE FABRIC OF TIME AND SPACE!!!!"

Heh, never knew he had an older brother. Good genes in that family. Does that make me a perv? Oh, I don't care, he's legal, right?

gracewanderer, in a comment on this locked entry, about the way one sentence can have very different meanings:

When I got back from Europe I joked that when a French person says "I speak a little English" they mean that they know the words "I speak a little English". When a German person says "I speak a little English" they mean "I have been studying English for ten years, have read more classic English literature than you've ever heard of, and have a larger English vocabulary than you do. I also speak French, Italian, Esperanto, Mongolian and Aztec."
