Is it just me, or have the headlines today . . . sucked?

i wonder how much they pay their web designer.

Why does this link to an .exe file?
2003-03-29 09:36:36 AM  
Link? Link? We're expected to read the link?

ACK! Between getting Lance and getting lanced, I'll take the blade.

The desire to meld metal with our biological frame is indicitive of our genetic preference to ascend/evolve into the Mensch Maschine.

Helen Chang, a veritable expert in the body piercing movement with five earrings, a diamond-studded nose, and a pierced tongue.

"And I'm going to get two more earrings," Chang volunteered.

that makes her an expert? *sigh*

I'm not surprised Mr Psychiatry Professor Guy didn't enumerate the #1 reason for the superfluous piercings:

"I like attention. Look at meeeeeeeeeee!"
2003-03-29 10:35:22 AM  
The attention thing actually was mentioned. But he mostly said that most people do it for that reason, but a precious few don't.
2003-03-29 10:47:07 AM  
Just the thought of a pierced wang gives me the willies. Ugh.
2003-03-29 11:19:54 AM  
i like shiny things, and i have an oral fixation. bam... those are my reasons. although attn can be nice, people rarely give a damn as to what I've got pierced.

The problem with doing it for attention is, you don't really get much. Piercings are so mainstream now that one or 2 don't really get noticed much. I do it for the feeling of it.
2003-03-29 12:29:54 PM  
Dang. I thought I was going to read that Britney finally admitted it....

Oh, wait. I guess that would be "Getting Justined".
2003-03-29 12:38:42 PM  
Dang, and here I thought this thread would be replete with piercing pics. I'm so disappointed.

Make that "spiritual"
2003-03-29 12:42:27 PM  
I'd put pics up if I had a camera, which I don't, or and existing picture, which I also don't.
2003-03-29 12:43:02 PM  
this is the farking worst article ever. PIERCINGS ARE POPULAR isnt news, its not even an OBVIOUS tab. Its falls more under the category of EVERYBODY ALREADY KNOWS AND DOESNT NEED TO READ IT.

/end pissy freakout
2003-03-29 01:28:52 PM  
attention whores, get silly peircings and the same old wannabe tattoos, that daddies credit card pays for.
2003-03-29 01:39:26 PM  
Hey Lance is my name.
2003-03-29 02:05:27 PM  
I knew a guy named Lance once. He was an idiot.
2003-03-29 02:27:43 PM  
This article is hard to mastrabait to.

Some women think makeup makes them look good, I think metal rings in the face and body make people look good. To each his/her own. Which is why I've been getting needles stuck in various parts o' my body for the last 10 years.

Although, I must admit...when I was in high school and used saftey pins and paper clip chains to connect my eyebrow and lip rings (and got detention for it), yeah THAT was for attention.

Picking on people for conforming is all well and good, but we all do it. Just because the trend that some people like happens to be body piercing, which a lot of people think is rebelious, doesn't mean it's any worse than any other form of everyday conformity. Like women shaving their legs or men not wearing skirts. It's a conformity you choose if you get pierced because you want to. It certainly has more dignity than removing a piercing just because some people don't like it.

There once was a guy named Lance
Who came from a place named France
2003-03-29 04:13:56 PM  
OK people, Im not an idiot and I hate France.

This thing is an ad.

Why did the marauding censor remove everybody's dip posts except mine? I can't decide whether to feel priviledged or left out...

2003-03-29 05:33:32 PM  
They just had to leave some of the dip-y goodness.

SquirrelWithLargeNuts: I happen to enjoy skydiving. Are you calling me an idiot? I think it's one of the most incredible feelings on earth. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Did anyone get to see BME for real before they went passworded and prolly subscription only ??

I remember it. Freaky stuff. Google on 'rethreading urethra sit down to pee' if you want to know what i'm talking about.

You probably don't ;)
2003-03-30 06:52:51 AM  
I had a limited subscription after I submitted the story of getting my labret pierced, and some guy friends ordered a regular subscription due to morbid curiousity. People do some effed up things to themselves, huh?
