I just had some delicious Outback for dinner.  Then I got home and checked the calories...  I should just eat thallium.  Same effect, just gets it done quicker.

Why would you ruin Outback by checking calories?  :(

Wasn't me.  I've only reported one person to a moderator because I wanted to see what it would do.  It told me that you cannot report yourself, as that would be silly.  I actually had said a naughty word in that post, but all the same, it's good to see that the admins have a strong anti-self-narcing policy in place!

I tried reporting myself once as well. I love self-reference.

You could actually "friend" yourself and learn stuff about your own via habits.

Dangit, James, when I said earlier that eating thallium had the same effect as eating unhealthy foods I wasn't suggesting you actually go out and do it!

EDIT - I should mention, this is a joke too.  Thallium is tasteless.

Do you really need a reason to drink that badly?

If according Sam Clemens that golf is a good walk spoiled, then certainly, softball is a good drunk spoiled.

Have one dozen for me.

Being drunk and playing softball is one of the best things to do on this planet.

I had a buddy who made me a frap one time at starbucks.  He always made me free drinks, but this time he came out with this green, sludgy lookin thing.  He was famous for making his "experimental" frapps when the store wasnt busy to share with his co-wokers, but I had never had one until this one.  He literally put everything he could find it in, including a pack of almonds that was for sale by the register.  Not just the almonds though... but the WHOLE package.  I was pulling plastic out of my teeth for a week and I only tried one sip!

I will no longer be posting on OC.net.

I just wanted to apologize to all the people I have met here over the years.  I wanted to apologize because I have been a liar.  A charlatan. 

In my numerous posts regarding relationships...which I realize have been taking up a disproportionate amount of my posting effort...I have always passed myself off as the kind of man that women would want to be with.  A good guy, so to say.  I have always prided myself on not being one of those guys who think a woman's only place is Kinder, Kuche, Kirke.  I have been lying to all of you.

Any woman I end up with will have to spend a large portion of her time in the kitchen.

Primarily in a supervisory role.

What I'm trying to say is, tonight I messed up a hard boiled egg.

I set it on fire...

Just kidding.  I dropped it into the water a bit to hard (shouting "hurdy gurdy gurdy gur" the whole while) and it cracked, spewing forth the yummy white bits to float about in the water.  All things considered, it didn't taste all that bad, despite only being half an egg in a shell by the time I was done with it.

As to your pic...I LOVE Red Bull.  I actually like the flavour.  I used to drink one every morning...but alas, I am on a diet now...

I drink the sugar free Red Bull! Only 15 calories a can, and it tastes just as good IMO. Or, they have a new zero calorie version that is also quite tasty.

All the wings, none of the calories (just super healthy aspartame  ::) )!

I drink the sugar free Red Bull! Only 15 calories a can, and it tastes just as good IMO. Or, they have a new zero calorie version that is also quite tasty.

All the wings, none of the calories (just super healthy aspartame  ::) )!

Ugh.  I have a very (very) dirty joke about diet soda, but I won't post it in public.  I have pretty much restricted my drinking to black coffee, water, and beer in semi-moderation...

Really?

I've been trying to wean myself off the blue V ...

Yes. The newest Red Bull (called Total Zero) has a... fruitier?... taste than the original, but not in a bad way. And the sugar free is just as good (better, I think) as the original.

PM me your joke. Inquiring minds and all that.

Black coffee is the way to go, although I do take mine with a sugar. As for beer, as long as it's not Bud Lite Lime, I won't judge you. If it's Rolling Rock, I give you an approving nod.

on the topic of 'healthier' energy drink options, Monster Absolute Zero is great, IMO

I tried a Monster once, and I thought it tasted like play-dough.

But that was years ago. Perhaps another try is in order.

try the one i mentioned. the regular ones taste like sugary, calorie-infused gasoline mixed with carbonation.

Okay, I will. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the regular ones were gross.
