Well, this isn't good. Is it normal for my saliva to be brownish-yellow? Is it a result of cigar smoking? I didn't think one of those little Punch cigarillos a day would/could have such an affect. Perhaps cessation from smoking would be a good idea.

No, colored saliva is NOT normal.

It's only within the first hour after smoking.

And what does that tell you?

My oral health is probably getting nasty and I'm becoming like my grandfather.

So, what are you going to do about it?
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

While you're at it, tell him about your snus habit.

Maybe OC.net should filter that word or replace it with snuff.
Yes, the brain does play tricks like that.

Strangest thing about New York to someone on the West Coast in California like myself is how New Yorkian men will wear capri pants/shorts. Over here on the West, that is almost a dead give away that a man is from New York.

Some men, women, and children are starting to wear these facekinis.

They are supposed to protect a person from skin cancer, and keep one anonymous too.  :laugh:

I wonder if the bathing suits and the facekinis will protect against jelly fish and their venom.

The truth In Posting department points out that that is in China, not California.

I know it's confusing because they both start with C, and are both odd places, but can we at least only take credit for actual Cali wierd?

It was in one high fashion magazine.


Until you show me pictures from Santa Monica or Malibu or Huntington Beach with actual real life people and not crazy high fashion models wearing it, it's not 'spreading'

I had to -tape- a wool sock to the metal frame of my bed, right at the bottom corner.

After hitting my leg on it not once but twice (the second time made me see stars and cry) this week, the now goose egg sized lump and bruise on my calf demanded that i remedy the situation post haste.

so now both I and my bed wear socks to sleep in.

ouch.

I have done that before, but I ended up with a blackened little toe.  I finally got a new bed without a metal frame.. Yes, there is more risk of bedbugs who can hide in wood. If that happens, we have cedarcide.

Oh, I did pick up bedbug in a brand new rent-a-car. Only one customer had used it before us. The critter crawled into my shoe, onto me, and then climbed into bed with me where it could not control its appetite for blood. When we washed the bed sheets early the next morning, I found it impaled in the dryer lint trap. Rest in peace little bug!

To be fair, we have a huge Asian American population in California. It's already common to see people wearing plastic-billed hats to block the sun and white gloves--I think paleness is a sign of beauty in their culture or something--I haven't been to the beach in a few months, but I wouldn't be surprised if people were wearing this.

Unsubscribing for the time being.

Why are you posting this everywhere? I don't think anyone really cares who is or isn't subscribed to a particular topic.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

The truth In Posting department points out that that is in China, not California.

I know it's confusing because they both start with C, and are both odd places, but can we at least only take credit for actual Cali wierd?

To be fair, we have a huge Asian American population in California. It's already common to see people wearing plastic-billed hats to block the sun and white gloves--I think paleness is a sign of beauty in their culture or something--I haven't been to the beach in a few months, but I wouldn't be surprised if people were wearing this.

Yes, pale is something women are supposed to be, and skinny as well. We had a variety of Chinese and Korean students at the university my wife attended, and sometimes sociology students would interview them in the coffee shop. It's surprising what all you can learn by eavesdropping. :P
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are

I have never been selected for POM.  I have decided to remedy this obvious oversight by going through my posting history and nominating every single one of my posts for POM.  Surely one of them will make it.

Mods, better get ready, 'cause here they come.   :-*
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I've been on this board for five years, give or take, and I still see this when I read POM:

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Thanks to a joke Punch — or maybe Punch Jr., or maybe someone else — made once, I almost always read "fasting" as "farting" on this board.

How do you know? One of the ways of nominating a post is by reporting it while filling in "POM" as reason.

That he would know. He is attempting to increase his odds of being selected by nominating more of his posts

Yes. It is possible that I have been nominated, but I have never had the laurel crown placed on my head and honors heaped upon my shoulders as I strode through the streets of oc.netville.  Therefore, I need to "encourage" these mods to take a closer look at my posts by spamming them with "Report to Moderator" requests of every one of my posts.  Now quiet, Cyrillic, I am only up to post 357 of 7,483. It is going to be a long night, and don't spout off any silly nonsense like "maybe you should improve your posting quality".  Such proposals are most unwelcome.

Quality is not what you should improve to get a POM. Just make your posts so long that nobody would ever bother to read it whilst pretending to know it all. That's what most others seem to do, and it works. There hasn't been an entertaining or truly lucid POM for months and months.
