(Salon)   The "craziest OK Cupid date ever." No, it didn't end with a dead hooker, a threesome, or even a glass of wine tossed into someone's face. No, it involved traveling to 8 countries in 21 days while wearing the same clothes   (salon.com) divider line 85

If you don't find yourself in jail after it, I have still had worse.

Oh ho ho, aren't you interesting.

The only thing worse than the breathy writing is the edgy shoe store circa 2002 photography.
 
2013-11-11 08:36:21 PM
More like "OK Stupid," amirite?

I just looked at the photos.  She went on a date with Elvis Costello?

I miss the days when people could only bore their friends and relatives with stories.

Y'all have a bad case of the Mondays. It's a cute story.
 
2013-11-11 08:42:07 PM
Yeah, I believe that........
 
2013-11-11 08:43:28 PM
Bet you they were stinky as hell...
 
2013-11-11 08:44:05 PM
Could you imagine wearing the same underwear that long?
 
2013-11-11 08:45:18 PM
Started reading, got bored very quickly. Did it explain why they're standing so far apart in all the photos?
 
2013-11-11 08:45:36 PM
I went to a bar and played pool on most of my OkC or Match dates. I'm good with my decisions.

Honest Bender: Could you imagine wearing the same underwear that long?


Unfortunately, any consideration given to the cuteness of this story was overwhelmed by that thought.

Guess I'm not cut out for that kind of date.

I like this and will be stealing it and...

Honest Bender: Could you imagine wearing the same underwear that long?


...no. That's disgusting and I hope that they at least swapped out pairs that they washed in the sink. Maybe they did, but I didn't get too far in that article,

Good for them, I guess.

MisterTweak: Y'all have a bad case of the Mondays. It's a cute story.


Yeah.  It's a skosk bit twee, but still sweet, and sounds like a blast.

(I'd have taken some backup shiat tho - could have easily ended up cold, lost and miserable)
 
2013-11-11 08:54:38 PM
And to think I get annoyed when it shows me matches more than 5 miles away, despite my filter settings >_>
 
2013-11-11 08:56:01 PM
Damn, the Salon website has turned into an utter crap-fest.  Interstitials & pop-overs, really sketchy ad content, clunky layout.

Buck Henderson: ...no. That's disgusting and I hope that they at least swapped out pairs that they washed in the sink. Maybe they did, but I didn't get too far in that article,

I am here to inform you ... no underwear.

// JK, I didn't get that far into the article either. But now the above thought is stuck in your head FOREVER.

They were wearing the same pairs of clothes for 21 days in a row.

I want to beat these people until there is more blood in their piss than piss.
 
2013-11-11 09:02:30 PM
Those pants are beyond ugly. The only reason to wear them is to show off your hipsterness. Or maybe they were pants left over in the bottom of your drawer that you didn't mind grunging up for this little trip of yours. But I'm going with hipster.
 
2013-11-11 09:03:27 PM
Why did nobody in any of those countries beat his ass?

The comment directly above your post probably explains it:

"Could you imagine wearing the same underwear that long?"

I would be happy to tell a person like this, "Your life is way too exciting and energetic for me, you're obviously a superior species of being, now run off and leave me alone."

I skimmed TFA for you sorry bastards.
" Jeff and I boarded the Heathrow return flight as closer friends than ever (despite the questionable state of our undergarments"

At least the Europeans wouldn't have noticed their smell...

That.

/feel bad for the poor schmucks that got stuck on the plane with them.

Product placement is fake.

/not reading it
 
2013-11-11 09:06:45 PM
Wow. didnt even make it to the first sentence before I closed the page tab, thanks to that douchetastic hipster photo to start the article.

Thanks, Salon, for not letting me waste my time.
 
2013-11-11 09:10:23 PM
That article was painful to read.  It read like hipster/apple porn (if there is a difference).  I'm all for not bringing every item you own while traveling but taking it that extreme isn't impressive it's just obnoxious.  I also can't really wrap my head around hitching rides in eastern europe instead of riding the awesome trains.

/Just visted brooklyn for the first time this weekend.

This is awesome. Wish I would have done that when I didn't have so many responsibilities. Good on them.
 
2013-11-11 09:14:36 PM
Sounds like fun, though I'm not optimistic enough to travel without at least a day pack...or some good cargo pants.
 
2013-11-11 09:19:13 PM
Wow, that guy looks like a total douche. And a hipster. But I repeat myself...

I'm guessing the sleeping arrangements were fairly intimate given that neither brought pajamas and the underwear was usually drying on a line.  Creative way to go from 1-10 in the intimacy department.
 
2013-11-11 09:25:51 PM
I call shenanigans.  No one goes on a 3 week trip with someone they've never met, especially if their only contact is an online dating site, and comes out alive.

I believe you can get your ass kicked for saying someone has a bad case of the Mondays.

A Confederacy of Dunces II: The Adventures of Ignatius and Myrna

Why am I not surprised this drabby-gross cowgirl is from Austin, God Bless Texas? Hellava trip, ramblers, hellava trip.
 
2013-11-11 09:36:01 PM
I need bigger versions of those pictures. I can't tell if the girl is hot or not, which will have a significant impact on my opinion of this story.
 
2013-11-11 09:41:23 PM
The night before we left Jeff and I had painstakingly cataloged the items we deemed crucial for our 21-day journey. Passports, credit cards and iPhones made the cut

an iPad Mini

What we discovered was that after a certain base level was met (water, food, shelter and a fully charged iPhone)

Aw, com'n Grandpa, can you tell your grandkids what rotten crotch smells like in Budapest, Hungary?
 
2013-11-11 09:44:09 PM
What's wrong with going out for a beer and watching a baseball game?

I don't want the next chick I ask out to expect me to take her horseback riding from the Dzhungarian Gate to the Gansu Corridor, or on a six month hike thru the Brazilian rainforest wearing only what we can kill with sharpened sticks.

That's why it's known as Plenty of Dicks.

Seriously lady dicks EVERYWHERE! Like Tarantino in the opening of Reservoir Dogs

She likes him for his bitter, cynical sense of humor.

Or the heat he seems to be packing in those red pants if his.

I instead found "goofball", "unusual", "risk-taking", "very much not my kind of fun", "cute, maybe" and "memorable".

The following image is only about half appropriate, but like this story, the image search ended up in a place I didn't expect though it's better than I would have found had I followed my original plan

Cute story, but could use 2 less punchable hipsters...

Oddest first date I had involved flying to Dallas, then driving her 100+ miles to go swimming. The date must have gone well, I got oral sex in the parking lot of a Dairy Queen in Paris Texas, and again in the parking lot of a Korean BBQ the next day.
