I'd say they should be good to go. Not like they're skydiving or doing scuba.

I didn't think Steampunk outfits and tropical climates would mix all that well...

What with malaria, consumption and yellow fever. They're not allowed to use modern medicine... right?

I'd go dressed as The Doctor; because why not.
 
2014-03-14 10:31:15 PM  
Why do you need those goggles when you are in door?
 
2014-03-14 10:32:42 PM  
You'd think they'd at least use a steamship.

How many hats with goggles can you have!?

Even if I was steampunk, you wouldn't be able to convince me to go on a cruise.

My experience with this: Really fat chicks in corsets and socially inept old guys perving on them.

Match made in heaven if you ask me.

I'm old, 63, and these mopes seem slightly younger than me.  I must have missed it.  Something bad happened 10 to 15 years after I was born.  Too much fallout from the H-bomb tests?  Chrome poisoning from the cars of the day?  There should be an investigation to explain this shiat.

/I thought steampunk was for the kids.
//One of my 19 year old's likes her steampunk novels, but, if any of these old creeps show up at the door, they're going to have to carry his top hat, missing some of the gears, to the funeral.

The author needs to figure out what a "score" is.  It was 60 people, not 600.

For me it's less about judging them for being fat and more about the 'LOOK AT ME, I'M FAT AND HAVE BIG (FAT) BOOBIES, SO THAT MEANS I'M HOT' attention-whoring. That gets old real quick. No, sweetie, a corset and 6 miles of dress don't make you look sexy, they make you look delusional.

I would have loved to see them and spend some time with them on a cruise.
/people on land who are landlubbers spend too much time judging others.

Cruiser... and met some of the most interesting people on them.

Last cruise I was on, I met a blind person who was blind from birth who knew more about the world than most of you ever would.
/My wife and I took her all over Bermuda because the goddamn ship would not provide her with an escort to go on land.

Careful with the judging there, Judgie McJudgerson, people might think you're a 'landlubber'

The first one is pretty good for a RealDoll. "Uncanny valley", though.

The reality certainly knows how to work with what she's got, but she also looks to be middle age and a large woman.

I'd probably befriend the reality, then gang up on the fantasy girl, tie her up and uhm.

But enough about what I did last week.

Oh, I don't know - there is definitely a ratio out there between big tits and just plain fat tits. Case in point:

Abbi Secraa (NSFW)

Obviously, there are personal tastes involved, but if I wanted to go the death by titty route, I'd attack her boobs until I drained all the fluid/moisture from my body.

From what I've heard of cruise ships lately I doubt that's the reality at all.  It sounds more like everyone's shiat is flowing quite liberally, even when they don't want it to.

Where to start?  Where to start?

I'm guessing your have to be under 35, maybe under 30

Ever notice how popular the fantasy genre has become in movies and even TV shows these days?
The late 60'sand early 70's, fantasy was an 24/7 thing for a large swath of the population.

The world is kind of shiatty these days.
Large portions of cities on fire.  Assassinations of leaders.  Weekly KIA counts of 300+ in Viet Nam.  Rampant crime.
AIDS outbreak, with no cure in sight.  Yup, things sure are shiatty today.

Your normal life back then is something we fantasize about today.
That was the "normal", so fantasize away, dude, fantasize away.

zimbomba63: The world is kind of shiatty these days.



I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, God damn it! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!' I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad!... You've got to say, 'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!' Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

No way man. This is far. You're only allowed to think women who are or appear to be 18-25 and have a BMI in the proper ranges, as well as the correct fashions, are 'nice', let alone express any sort of attraction to a middle aged, plus size, woman.

We're leaving out the obvious failing of being 'in' to such a horrible socially unacceptable thing like steampunk, which all of Fark deems to be worse than hitler's warm semen.

Aside from the 'insult' aspect of your post, what cross am I supposed to be carrying here?

Because if you are going to tell me with a straight face that what I posted isn't true, I'll call you a damned liar to yours. Fark has a type. Only 'that type' is acceptable. Admitting that anything other than 'that type' is attractive is frowned upon, and open to mocking (hey, look at your post!)...
