planes: My dad was in New Guinea during WWII, and he told me they lost a couple of guys in his outfit to headhunters. This part of the world is still in the Bronze Age.

At least they got good jobs.

As someone who grew up in PNG, that would be a misleading statement. While certainly no first-world country, it is not in the Bronze Age.


No, GIF is bronze age. DDS is the way of the future.

MsInterpreted: FTA: "My wife, who was about seven months pregnant, delivered the baby while struggling to free herself.

"It was a painful experience for me and her," Mr Yekum said.

Why do men always try to share in the pain of childbirth, like they did it? Geez...


To piss you off. Now get back in the kitchen!

/+200 misogyny xp for me.

I thought she was talking about her and her baby when I read it.

studebaker hoch: I once saw a little kid accidentally pop out a turd while trying to get out of a carnival ride.It was an insta-turd. One second a clean seat, the next, a perfectly placed steamer. /kids eyes got as big as quarters when 1) he did it and 2) knew I saw him.

I believe you.

I saw a kid do something like this in the 5th grade. He was just standing there and it fell out his pant leg. I have no idea how he did it. It was kinda small, round, and hard. Maybe some turd physicist can figure it out.

/he got stuffed into a few lockers in jr high, too.

As someone else pointed out, I think he meant the whole ordeal, i.e. being dragged from his home. But one of my biggest pet peeves is when a couple says "We're pregnant." No. You, the female, are pregnant. You, the male, have a wife/girlfriend/whatever that is pregnant. You are both expecting a baby. But dude, you are not pregnant.

I'm surprised that after 7mths the kid is "doing fine" especially in that area of the world and the circumstances of the birth.
Of course there will be NOTHING done to the people who did this, since either the govt. probably believes in witchcraft as well and would support the action, OR they will just consider it something to be dealt with within the local village

damn you. I thought I was going to be clever by posting a guts picture. I guess I will just have to commend you for your awesomeness for being a berserk fan.

I continue to torment my friends with the vicious cliffhanger at the end of the anime.


Awful, simply awful. at least Miura finally started back up again.

What makes you think she is a witch?

Well, she turned me into a newt.

A newt?

I got better.

After the 95th "Holy Grail" reference, it really stops being funny. If you were looking for the kiddie pool, it can be found here.

The couple denied practising sorcery.

But have you stopped beating your wife? Answer yes or no!

So you were running carnival rides for kids without pants?

How long did you work at Neverland?

Ex-Republican: 40oz_A_Knight: Isn't primitive culture great?

/c'mon, cultural relativists, convince me this is a perfectly acceptable practice

I'm no cultural relativist, but do you think it's perfectly acceptable for people living in one of the most technologically advanced countries on Earth, with access to more information than anyone has in history, to still believe the Earth is only 6000 years old?


No, I think that's retarded. Anyway, that's not the culture I belong to, if that's what you were insinuating. Culture doesn't follow national borders - if that were the case, our crime rates would be far lower.

How did it get out of his underwear, and then his pants? Was it beamed out, or what?

He was wearing shorts, it went out one of the legs.

/I would guess he was going commando that day.

I like the last line, as if it was possible to practice sorcery.

So, can we use the word lynch here? Or would that be insulting to the people that were strung up?

jruland: The couple denied practising sorcery.

best closing line EVER!


I was just thinking, "Why do they even have to state this? Isn't it understood?"
