Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Yes it was. First I was going there and then I wasn't and then by chance and duty I had to make a quick trip. Had lunch at the Britannia (the establishment at: 1 Allen St, Kensington, London) of bangers and mash. Had the draft IPA made in merry old England. Very good. Forget the name. My friend had the American IPA they had on tap, the all day IPA from Founders Brewery out of Michigan I think. I smirked a bit when the barkeep went on about how good it was. He is unaware, I think, that it is available by the case in handy cans and that redneck lumberjacks from the north woods drink it. Strike up that old Monty Python sketch.

We also had time to sneak in a visit to this place:

Churchill-war-rooms/cabinet-war-rooms

Fascinating. Their finest hour in full display.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

I grabbed The Daily Star (20p cheaper than the Sun and home of the page 3 girl) to arm myself with the latest news, a necessity when traveling, especially to slum cities like London. Though only doing a quick in and out of a one night stand useful news is paramount. Star Headline:

80 MPH hurricane blasts UK. HELL STORM, 3 die as sun turns blood red in yellow sky.
Excellent sport and racing news and human interest stories litter this lusty news mag. Back pages also had pithy adds for: Proper Filthy Girls, sex with grannies, and the best one of all:

18 Just Barely Legal, young, dumb and ready to come.

***************

Not their finest hour in Journalism but an understandable one.

I have no comment. I have better things to do - like drink in London and make fun of the Irish with two English wacko friends (wasn't Chez or Lastcard) and one sot of a Scot over dinner in a Peruvian restaurant. The food was almost as good as the conversation.

Appears some people are planning to run me out of town. May have to get back to Europe sooner than I planned.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

I looked up that hurricane article Zeno, ended up here, the number one article in that newspaper (NSFW):

Spoiler:


Seemed topical. Shout out to Howard.

The human race is doomed. I might have to upgrade my alleged racism to a general misanthropy as you have done. Seems more enlightened? It's also impossible to be racist if you hate everyone equally, I have no idea what that cuck in ATF is going on about.

Don't muddy the waters of understandable and somewhat misguided general disdain with prejudice and authoritarianism.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

My approach is generally non complementary to approaches of general disdain. A case of been there done that combined with one thing led to it's another.

That's the beauty of it.

Presumptive logic? I guess I except it works itself out in the end?

I'm writing a country song tonight titled "where are the cries to turn Texas to glass?" It's country sad, I promise.

I was just informed that last night I decided that a lobster tail makes an excellent hat. Mat may be able to confirm this.

I'm fairly sure that most people know what a lobster tail shell looks like, so a picture isn't really necessary
