vicioushobbit: AbiNormal: vicioushobbit: I'd be willing to donate an up close visit with my EE twins. I could probably write the plane fare off my taxes.

Prove it.

Show me documentation that you're about to go blind.  I have no compulsion to prove myself to a FARKer whom I don't even have favorited.


Could you really do that?

Fine I'm here vicious hobbit. It's tough being a. 9 year old who is going blind. Now please put them on the glass.

I am hoping you aren't a 40 year old 500 pound guy!


Just in case you are the 9 year old, here's A pair of tits on glass to hold you over.

I don't know.  Let's send the IRS a pic of my tits with the refund, and see what happens.

Cool. I'll file your taxes for you. Don't forget to send me a pic of the twins along with receipts and tax forms.

They are pretty nice but I don't get what all the fuss is about.

Now i just need to see a pair of hooters, a nice can, some big jugs, a couple milk wagons, and some fire bush. At least that's the list my uncle gave me.

And here he is trying to unsee Robert Duvall for some reason.

And then they took his photo. The last thing the boy saw were those annoying green blobs from looking directly into the flash.

Gunther: lindalouwho: If not that means there was at least one man who bought Playboy "for the articles". Ha!

Go back a few decades and Playboy really did have excellent and famous writers working for them - it's a cliche because people really did buy it for the articles at one point.


Ok, I did know that authors like Mailer, Updike, and Capote had written for Playboy and it ran book excerpts but I was astonished at the list when I googled. Allen farkin Ginsberg?!! Kerouac!! Just for starters. And the early band/musician interviews! I did know it was well repected, remember guys in the 70s and 80s asking each other if they had read a certain article and discussing it. I guess because it was Playboy I paid them no mind. I saw that they have the whole archive online, since I know those old ones will be longform there are a few I'll have to look up.

/csb/s

When I was around 5 (1961) I was getting something in my parents room and discovered my dad's Playboys in the bottom of the night stand. Wasn't shocked by the "pretty ladies" on the cover - had seen Gina Lollobrigida, Charo, Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe on tv. Giggled at the little icon of the bare boobied, long gloved little icon sitting in the champagne glass. Then....BOOBIES!!!! Ok, now I knew I could get in trouble. I knew my mom and other women had boobs but never thought about, being 5 and all. I was amazed and fascinated. How did they get there? I thought they were just lumps? Then it dawned on me that OMG I WAS GONNA GET BOOBIES o_O When? How? Nooooo I'm scared!

Looked at them 2 more times before I got caught, trying to figure it out. Yep, I have those things that they have on the tips. Then mom walked in. I had no idea how much trouble I was in then after her initial PUT THAT DOWN she calmed down and tried to field the questions pouring out of me. Why does daddy have these? What about boobies? I don't think I want them, do I have to? When? How? Can I see yours? NO. Go play and don't ever talk to me about the magazines again. Or breasts.

My poor mom lol.

They disappeared after that. They were the first place I looked. Yep, under the mattress. Saw grandma put money under hers once, knew it was a hiding place. They were the same ones I already saw, so I lost interest and forgot about them altogether in a few days. Still looked at my little chest when I took a bath for a few months tho, befuddled.

dragonchild: lindalouwho: Do they make Braille centerfolds? What would that look like?


Wait. The Ray Charles Playboy was also much larger than a regular one also, and the cover was plain like that. Now that I look again. I realize that it is 'shopped or a joke pic, but is that a real Braille Playboy? At first look I was just amused by the junxtaposition of feeling Braille boobies (is there 3D Braille?) with Venus boobies right there.

/boobies lol
//I'm a bad person for forgetting the boy who is going blind - I would be terrified and hope he has enough strength to not only deal, but be happy

camaroash: Hopefully his vision lasts a while.  Specifically, until at least August 21, 2017.  A total solar eclipse is one hell of a sight to behold.

↑ THIS! ⇑ I came here to say this. Read more about the first total solar eclipse to hit the USA mainland since 1979, and the first to hit any part of the USA since July, 1991 (that one only hit Hawaii, which had one of its very rare cloudy days that day ― it also hit Guadalajara and Mexico City, the latter being the largest city by population that humankind had had then-to-date, meaning that more people saw that total solar eclipse than saw all previous ones in human history combined!).

If his eyes won't last that long, there are of course others before then that will happen in other places. If he could only hold out seven more years past the 2017 one, the next one to hit the USA will pass right over parts of Texas, where he lives. It'll pass right over Austin, Far West of San Antonio, Kerrville, Killeen, Temple, Waco, most of the DFW region (including McKinney and Plano but not Denton), Mt. Pleasant, Tyler, and Texarkana, among others.

I've had a subscription for more than ten years, my sister gets it for me for Christmas. Aside from the occasional celebrity issue, I don't really care about the naked women. I can get unlimited and superior porn right here on the internet.

Oh kid. Don't you know it doesn't go dark when you go blind?
You'll learn just like I did. Blind isn't a color.

Very sorry to hear that.
I've had blind spots in my vision, for various reasons, and understand what you mean. Can you describe what it's like for the whole of your visual field to be affected?

I was born 3 mo's early back in 83 so mine was caused by a careless nurse before I could remember it (too much oxygen = detached retinas to varying degrees.) The best way I can describe it is like an absence of vision. There's supposed to be something there... but it's not.  Or to put it in computer rgb terms, if black is 0,0,0 than blindness is a,$,* It's literally something incomprehensible to the system.

Calling it "darkness" is oversimplifying it.

EvilEgg: I want to see some of those things too. I have to do it on my own dime.


Ok. I'll send you, but I get to gouge your eyes out with a spoon after, deal?

Tillmaster: Can you describe what it's like for the whole of your visual field to be affected?

You can experience it for yourself.  There's a bug in the human vision where the eyes have to constantly stay in motion or you will go (temporarily) blind.  So, what you do is you pinch & press your eyeballs with your fingers (through the skin around them, you just have to press hard) such that your eyelids and eyeballs can't move.
The first thing you'll notice is just how strong your eye muscles are as they violently twitch to try to keep your eye in motion.  If you're not pressing hard enough, this will actually prevent the effect.  Once you've got the hang of it, within a few seconds you go blind.  Not to worry; once you let go your sight is restored within seconds.

The first time I succeeded, I almost panicked.  It is not like closing your eyes.  It's more like your eyes have "crashed", a biological equivalent of static.  If I was to give it a color it'd be gray, but instead of just seeing gray, there's a horrible sensation that your sight is missing.  Your brain goes crazy for signals it's not getting.
I actually recalled the description of the Nothing in The Neverending Story.  In the book, they say (paraphrasing), "It's not darkness, it looks as if one went blind."  When I was a kid I thought nothing of it.  Now I understand, in retrospect, just how horrifying an abomination the author was trying to describe.
