If I ever entered a contest to reproduce a 90s style website, with the goal of it being as annoying as possible, I would have a 20 second loop from this song of just him saying "Gary, Indiana" over and over.

I don't understand the movie Indecent Proposal. I'd gladly sleep with someone if I got paid a million dollars. What's the problem?

And?  ???   I mean, maybe you'll have to talk sense to your partner if they are hesitant, but in the end who's gonna turn down that kinda cash?

This differs from person to person. Obviously if it's a beautiful person the price goes down. For the ugliest person in the world my minimum would be $800*. Please don't tell them, though, as you'd ruin my chances of getting more.


*I am speaking for sleeping with me. Obviously it will be very traumatic for them, so I don't think it'd be fair to charge them a lot. Now, if we are talking about a beautiful wife or something, then we might reach five figures.

And it is early 1990s $1MM. Tax free I imagine.

For you the more interesting question would be what wouldn't you pay to sleep with some someone you found charming and attractive?

Cancelled services, catechisms and confessions are part and parcel of Orthodoxy. It's a good patience-builder.

That happened with my attempt to go to Liturgy this morning.  The schedule was not changed, and I saw parishioners' cars parked near the church, but ALL the doors were locked and I could not locate a single human.  Weird.

Is Narodnaya Volia still active in Finland  ?

A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine

It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

I had to goole that one. I don't rememer hearing of it despite somewhat extensive teaching of history of that period in elementary school and upper secondary school.

When I succumb to sickness induced by an overabundance of alcoholic solution which has permeated my bodily constitution, I tend to have liquid projectile exiting from both the entrance and rear exit, but only the front middle exit as a secondary path. I wish to expedite this process.

Jagermeister. Though I rarely drink nowadays, partially because of the aforementioned problem, though mostly because alcohol makes me as sick as a dog for the next day or two afterwards.
