  1. Quote I have no answers for you. Why do men and women have low self value? Why do I? Is it "the media"? Is it conditioning? Is it parental/friends/..... reply] i think it's all of these things, depending on the person. for me, it began as a parental thing. i can remember being less than 10 and being told to suck in my tummy. my mother, at a size 2, made it known that pretty things come in small packages. i can vividly remember being 13 and being a size 6 and trying on clothing with her. she would try on something and say she looked fat in it. if, at a size 2, she was fat, i was massive. i can remember when the eating disorder started at and when the negative feelings began at 14. so here i am at 30, and still going through the same emotional bullshit associated with a low self-esteem and restricting what i eat out of fear of getting fat, despite not being under the influence of my mother anymore. i teach my students not to fall prey to the power of the media, and yet i still do. i teach them to feel good about who they are and that healthy and beautiful come in different packages, and yet i am terrified to gain a pound. so, like kbordson, i do not have answers, but merely have experience to share.
  2. sauteed fennel 3 TBSP olive oil 2 cloves garlic, sliced 2 heads fennel, thinly sliced salt ground black pepper Heat a medium saute pan over medium-high heat until just smoking. Add the oil, garlic, fennel, and start tossing, to coat fennel in oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. As the fennel starts to caramelize, add a splash of water to steam for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

  5. Donnie: You are such a fuckass. Elizabeth: Did you just call me a fuckass? You can go suck a fuck. Donnie: Oh, please, tell me Elizabeth, how exactly does one suck a fuck?
  6. Ronald Fisher: Beer and pussy. That's all I need. Sean Smith: We gotta find ourselves a Smurfette. Ronald Fisher: Smurfette? Sean Smith: Yeah, not some tight-ass Middlesex chick, right? Like this cute little blonde that will get down and dirty with the guys. Like Smurfette does. Donnie: Smurfette doesn't fuck. Sean Smith: That's bullshit. Smurfette fucks all the other Smurfs. Why do you think Papa Smurf made her? Because all the other Smurfs were getting too horny. Ronald Fisher: No, no, no, not Vanity. I heard he was a homosexual. Sean Smith: Okay, then, you know what? She fucks them and Vanity watches. Okay? Ronald Fisher: What about Papa Smurf? I mean, he must get in on all the action. Sean Smith: Yeah, what he does, he films the gang-bang, and he beats off to the tape. Donnie: [shouts] First of all, Papa Smurf didn't create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel's evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village. But the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario, it just couldn't happen. Smurfs are asexual. They don't even have... reproductive organs under those little, white pants. It's just so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. You know, what's the point of living... if you don't have a dick?
  7. Agreed. I don't, however, wish to fall into the elite camp and proclaim that I 'get it' and that proverbial others don't and therefore certain images are inappropriate for mass consumption.... It is systemic, I suspect. It is not a secret, nor is it new, that Americans are politically unaware and media hungry. That pairing is ripe for opportunities if in either politics or the media, but also ripe for being the recipient of manipulation if a consumer. And, I'm a ma'am... or was that satire I didn't catch?
  8. Sorry, took me some time to respond since I had to get the sand out of my clit... My problem with the cover is that there are people in this country completely swayed by media representations, however false. I recently had a family member send me an email diatribe against Obama which essentially stated that if he were to become president we would experience 9/11 everyday and that since he is in bed with the Middle East we should stop at nothing now to correct his campaign efforts. People like that fill our country and they vote. That is what scares me most about covers like this. I appreciate satire, truly I do... this just seems really potentially dangerous, but perhaps Squeak is right that American's just don't really get satirical wit. The only positive to come from it, in my estimation, at least, is that it is clearly engendering discussion.

  13. I have about 15 fewer jumps than you, but I had several landings that looked like that and then it was discovered that the brake lines were too long, so no matter how I tried to flare, NOTHING happened. Could that be it?
