DownDaRiver: So let me get this straight.
Its OK for black people to paint their faces white.
But, it is totally raciast for a white person to paint their faces black.
Ok, got it. ;|

Okay, I'll bite.  The white people in blackface are doing it to denigrate black people.  This use of whiteface is being used to reference porcelain dolls, not white people. In the same way, a white soldier blackening his face is not being racist, because he isn't trying to mick black people, but not have his face give him away*.  There is such a thing as "context", and "being a racist-ass cracker" is always bad context.

*Though the intermixing of these two ideas of blackface in O Brother, Where Art Thou did lead to some amusing bits

DarkSoulNoHope: The Lords of the New Church?

I might have. I dont remember. I have had friends tell me things we did and I just draw a blank.
I dont do hard drugs anymore, or try to drink my weight in drinks when i go out

tinfoil-hat maggie: Oh, and were getting off the thread topic.

Sorry. Nice pics, and good read, subby. Some Krews really make me want to deal with the hordes and actually go to Mardis Gras. This is one of them .

Smgth: GranoblasticMan: Smgth: GranoblasticMan: Smgth: GranoblasticMan: LDM90: Relatively Obscure: I thought they looked alright.  *shrug*  I don't care for the makeup and costume, but they don't seem all that physically unattractive to me.

This is Fark. Everyone is ugly and I stopped liking your favorite band two albums ago.

F*ck you, I stopped liking my favorite band before they released their first album!

Seems like a really shiatty use of a time machine!

I was really drunk, and I could only make one trip.

Did you AT LEAST do the 'nasty in the pasty'?!

If by that you mean molest myself when I was a child, yes.

/It certainly explains why I have so many issues
//Like why I'd use my only trip in a time machine to molest myself as a child

Ethically, CAN one molest one's self? If so, wouldn't EVERY masturbator be a serial molester? By the time you touch yourself, the nerve impulses from your brain have triggered in the past, so you're ALWAYS touching the past you....

/Time travel is fraught with ethical quandaries, but I think we've hit on a new one.
//Could be a scholarly paper in this...

Something like Wikihistory, perhaps.

I heard "baby dolls" and my mind went straight to EGL.

I will now attempt to steer this thread toward the proper direction.

gunsmack: You sure those are women?

/ FSM, if I had thighs that size I wouldn't show my face in public either.

Nice. Lets start bagging on Asians and their eyeballs now.
