1) Post from the past: What it means to be a Turk.


2) Weird search query of the week: “clothedporn.” 5 hits from this! Weird.

3) Comment of the week, in response to <a href="http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2011/06/dances-with-dragons-t-minus-month/#comment-74748Dances with Dragons, t-minus ~ 1 month":

Maybe I’m a terrible person but I’m waiting for GRRM to either finish the series or die. I don’t want to get sucked into several thousand pages and then have to wait years for more of the story.
I recently read all 21 Aubrey/Maturin books and they were wonderful — but looking at the copyrights I can’t imagine having read them contemporaneously and having to go years between installments. I guess I am a terrible person, or at least a terrible book lover.

4) And finally, your weekly fluff fix:

    Weird search query of the week: “clothedporn.”

    There’s a porn genre known as Clothed Female, Naked Male, usually identified by its acronym CFNM, which typically involves a naked man in the presence of two or more fully clothed women. Sort of like Le dejeuner sur l’herbe in reverse. It’s weird, but some guys really get off on it.

    Oh you’re right. Now that I look at it, it is a paper towel rod. Silly kat.

  • this is spam!

    What i do not understood is in reality how you’re now not actually a lot more neatly-appreciated than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore significantly in relation to this subject, produced me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated until it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs great. At all times handle it up!
