are you joking, patapon…?
damn double post
always the joker…
now watching Will and Kate wave to a crowd of random people was very exciting I wish I could have been there for that. When they kissed it was magical. It lasted a whole 1.25 seconds! They should have a Royal wedding ceremony every day.
Let me add a third choice here. The Americans celebrating Osama bin Laden’s death.
Funny… I thought of this very thread when I saw this ↑ image today. Thanks Blue.
Were these people all drunk?
That girl on the right looks pretty hot.
And the guy she’s mounted on looks like Jack McBrayer.
thread convergence time….
Can a non-citizen living in the UK become King? Because until I see the long form birth certificate of Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus, I’m not convinced he’s eligible to become King William the Fifth, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and His other Realms and Territories King, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, etc. etc,
For how do we know that he wasn’t really born in Kenya to a Hawaiian mother? After all, why else did he propose to Kate Middleton while in Kenya, strumming a ukulele, singing “Tip-toe through the Tulips?” Paging Donald Trump on line one!
Lol! That’s sex terminology for animals, Dada!
and here I thought ‘mounted’ was a Linux term….what a computer geek I am…
I vote for American celebrating Osama’s death as the biggest morons. I’m not saying I’m pro-Osama. I’m anti-mindless patriotism.
@Prudence — for real! You’ve not been watching enough nature shows!
Haha. I wish I could stake claim to this as being something of a Freudian, but I’m afraid not even this is the case. Never thought I’d see the day I should be thinking MORE about sex.
The whole scene in the photograph is rather animalistic, though, and as for sex, there is Erich Fromm’s notion of patriotism as incest.
Nah, the whole thing’s just Dionysian pushback against Apollonian restraints of life in post-9/11 US:
“maenads . . . were the female followers of Dionysus (Bacchus in the Roman pantheon), the most significant members of the Thiasus, the god’s retinue. Their name literally translates as “raving ones”. Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by him into a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. In this state, they would lose all self-control, begin shouting excitedly, engage in uncontrolled sexual behavior, and ritualistically hunt down and tear to pieces animals . . ."
For many the regret for bloodlust will have set in soon enough. That’s why you see so much of the MLK quote today:
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars." — Martin Luther King, Jr.
This thread: hate for hate multiplies hate
This mean there’ s a Post-Osama baby boom on the rise?! Will the name ‘Seal’ see a massive spike?
Yes, and yes.
