Because it's funny. Just my opinion. I'm kind of warped but apparently some Fark admins share my idea of funny.

On the other hand, let's discuss something about the article. How many images of Michael Phelps in a Speedo do you have stored on your computer? Let's compare? I will count mine. None. How many do you have?

Now, how many images of Kate Upton do I have on my computer? Brazillions. And I enjoy every one of them.

Exactly. If the person you were dating/married to was such a loser, then unless you were only together for no more than a month it's because you CHOSE to be with a loser. That means, if nothing else, you have horrible taste in men/women. And that's not the other person's fault.

2013-06-22 11:15:22 PM
Seriously this is so fake.

I could write out 150 weird and annoying things about my SO, but I love him all the same. So if the annoying quirks aren't worth the person you're with, you know, being a good person- then you shouldn't be dating them in the first place.

Yea, if Waterworld is on, then my SO is watching it and insisting it is 'so bad it is good!' but, shiat, the guy puts up with my *insane* rules like 'only eat the ugly cookies I make- the rest are for my coworkers/family/friends' and spazzing out when (specifically, I will suddenly grab the door and the armrest as if preparing for impact) riding in the car and he goes 1 mph over the speed limit. That is exactly what matters in a relationship- you know exactly how annoying the other person is, and you just deal with it because they rock. Plus, everyone is annoying. Even you.

MrHappyRotter: there's nothing gross about pouring water on cereal


Many years ago, when I was in college and the milk I'd bought had gone bad, I tried Diet Coke on cereal. This did not work at all. Water on cereal would've been an improvement. I never repeated this experiment, and kept a much closer eye on the expiration dates for the milk after that.

Of course it's fake (unless it was written by an 80-year-old).

Nobody under the age of 40 would bother committing a list like that to actual pen and paper; they forget those things exist after Grade 8.   It would be formulated as an email or a Facebook post instead.

There are no major spelling errors.  That would be a) impossible for today's workforce, unassisted by spell-checking, and b) atypical of ad-hoc notices composed in the heat of the moment by a person suffering the heightened emotions of relationship termination.

/Yes, I have an onion in my belt.  You could have one too, if you weren't standing on my lawn.

I do not believe that there is a man who wears leather pants, calls his cockatoo his baby, and has too many pictures of Michael Phelps junk-- & THIS SAME MAN---wears sweat pants to a funeral, likes predator 2, wears airbrushed clothing, and enjoys kirk cameron.
CONCLUSION: She is dating identical twins, one of whom is a homosexual and is doing his christian -conservative brother a favor by spending time with his deranged fiancee.

She isn't dating him, she dumped him, or did you miss that part? Unless the person is someone you've known for a while, these are the kind of things you find out about by dating them.

2013-06-23 12:45:46 AM

MBK: Why the hell would you date someone like that in the first place?


Because in the beginning they seem normal. That first kiss was sweet and everything you'd hoped it would be. He wasn't what you were looking for, but now you can't imagine your world without him. You begin building dreams around him.

As things progress you notice a few things that annoy you, but hey, nobody's perfect, right? But those minor annoyances don't go away. And he adds new ones. But hey, it's his quirks that make him who he is. And he does have some endearing qualities. The sex is great and his friends and family are accepting.

But the sex becomes routine. Or loses passion. Or just isn't as great anymore. And he's selfish in bed. Or he's too rough with your clit and won't listen when you tell him to ease up. Or he has a foot fetish. And he suggested that maybe your jeans are getting tight. Really? You haven't said shiat about his expanding beer pouch. Let alone the nasty beer burps. Those annoyances and quirks are becoming more like a festering sore that reveal the innermost workings of his mind.

And who knew. He's a sexist, psuedo Christian conservative jerk. Who eats cereal with farking waterl. I mean really who the fark does that?!

And all his endearing qualities just don't outweigh all the shiat he does that gets on your last farking nerve. And besides there are several cute guys who've been giving you the eye. You can do better.

And you make the list. And tell him to kick rocks.

At least that's what I think happened : )

3) Lots of idiots have a kind of superficial charm. He might have seemed funny when she first met him
4) They're both very young

Nothing in her letter implied that he treated her badly. He is apparently just a general, all-round eejit. And, as aforementioned, they're both very young. Good on her for realizing he wasn't someone to waste her time on.

Circles over the i's is a tween/teen thing.  They turn into little hearts when they get their first crush.  Most girls grow out of it before they leave high school.  If you meet up with a grown women (twenties or more) who still does it, think twice before dating her.  If she's grown and still drawing cute little hearts, RUN AWAY!

Alright, I read TFA.  The girl is dumping him over some pretty petty shiat, though the Phelps posters and one direction thing does highly suggest he is gay.

Does everything I need it to do. Is it really a big problem I never officially switched over?

/oh well

Lady Indica:Thurston Howell: /Yes, I have an onion in my belt.

Is it a big yellow one?


Yellow onions are copacetic for a gambol around town, but if you're really putting on the Ritz you'll need a more formal white or red onion.

ladyfortuna: I'm 33 and I use paper and pen all the time. Mostly for the grocery list, but you get the idea.


I'm about a decade your senior; my wife and I compile and share the grocery list through our phones.  That way we each have it, can split it up by aisle/section/etc, and have the shopping done in half the time.  My mother, who is about twice your age, writes her list on 5 or 6 post-it notes throughout the week, then panics once she's in the store and inevitably loses one of the notes in her purse.

Circles over i's and j's. I did that for about one week in middle school. My father saw it and put a stop to it with a quickness.

Just liking Snow Dogs would be reason enough.

I come from a Catholic New Orleans family. When coming through the door on a visit we always kissed each other on the lips. Everyone.

Lordfortuna is discouraged from accompanying me to the store, because shopping always takes twice as long if he's there. The list plus mental map of the store gets me in and out generally in 30 minutes unless it's a huge list. I know there's an app now for Wegmans but it didn't agree with my phone so I'm sticking to pen & paper until they fix it...

Wegmans? I didn't look at your profile, but Western New York is your haunt? I WISH there was something like Wegmans here in Wisconsin.

It was the exact opposite with my ex.  When she grocery shopped, she read the labels of everything she bought.  Even if it was something she bought every damn week she just had to read the complete label.  It drove me nuts.  The only time I read the labels is when it was something new and I as comparing brands to see which one looked better ingredients-wise, but once I settled on a brand, I would only occasionally check the label to see if anything had changed.

I'm like you; I do read labels the first time and maybe every other month I'll 'browse' to compare products, but usually I'm pretty brand loyal unless something changes (like major price increases).

And yeah, Western NY FTW, most of the time. Lame government officials not withstanding.

MrHappyRotter: I mean, I don't eat my cereal with water, but I'm going to disagree with that centipede infested coont and say, there's nothing gross about pouring water on cereal rather than the more typical use of milk.


You are 100% correct.  What *is* gross is eating the cereal that has water poured on it, instead of milk.

Could he be lactose intolerant?  That would be a valid reason for not using milk with cereal.  Though I would normally assume one of the many non-milk alternatives would be a better choice.

I went through that phase (actually, worse: hearts *shudder*). A teacher I really respected told me to stop doing it, so I did. I haven't thought about it in years. It's not high up there on the list of why he was one of my best teachers, but it's certainly on that list.

/Higher on that list: Assigning us to make models of arthropods out of household objects. I'm still proud of my straw and pipe cleaner lobster.

Grape nuts is just as good with water as it is with milk.
