Can a man sit on his balls accidentally?
Watching a documentary recently, Pres Clinton sat down and quickly got up, down again and squirmed, crossed, uncrossed his legs. Finally sat on one hip, obviously uncomfortable.
I suppose that is possible, but you'd have to have a REALLY long scrotum and really skinny legs.
Which celebrity or athlete has the most feminine looking butt?
Maybe he was having some hemorrhoid pain r13.
R13, it's happened to me a handful of times - you don't literally sit *on* them, but rather at an angle where the balls end up weirdly smushed against your thigh. I suppose it's also possible for older men to have particularly low-hanging nuts, and Clinton is now in his late 60s.

When I was young I respected older people, including older gay people. I was also conscious of the fact that I would one day be middle-aged as I am conscious now that I will one day be old.
Do those who are so dismissive of older gay people have no sense that they will one day also be older? Do they plan on shooting themselves at 35?

how do I forgive someone? my mom said "sorry" but she didn't think she did anything wrong. She mentally and physically abused my father in his last days.
I've cut her off in my life but am still angry at her.
I'm 40 years old and still find mused only attracted to straight men. Just this week I was rejected by a 21 year old (yes I'm ashamed of the age thing) whom I thought may be gay, but not only did he turn out to be straight he is in love with another one of our co-workers. My heart is so tired of being broken. I've reached a level of sadness I've never experienced. What is wrong with me? :-(
Why are gay men so bitchy?
Why do Tranys have so much baggage
No you aren't. I have always preferred the guy next door over the built, the pretty and the shaved. Perfect and pretty to look at is boring to me, I do like to look but for me is like doing a blow up doll
R33, I don't believe in 100% forgiveness. You may never forget her cruelty either. Just understand that she was a very damaged person, possibly mentally ill, and likely had a miserable existence. Compare it to all of the meanies on DL who often express their anger at life, by abusing those requesting help or emotional support. Perhaps you should focus on trying to be the complete opposite of your Mom. Instead of forgetting her selfishness, use it to inspire you to be more charitable.

Who put the ape in the apricot?
So what's a good site for single 50-somethings to find friends to travel and see arts stuff and culture that might turn into something more.
I'm a recent widower that was straight and monotonous (autocorrect of monogamous, but I've leave it in for irony's sake) but when I honestly look at the sort of arts and culture I like I'm thinking gay guys are an option. Maybe I'm bi-curious so I won't rule that out but I'd rather start from friendship.
Why do some waitresses, who are just employees, when asked what the specials are, says "I have.." as if she is the restaurant owner? Or the retail salesman who when asked if something is in stock says "I have..."?
thank you R38 for your reply, I really appreciate it.
[quote]So, what happens now?
You'll get by, you always have before.
That's a complicated question R42.
There are changes to Medicaid eligibility, and some subsidies that will be offered based on your income level. So I would say for the lowest earners, the premiums will be *more* affordable.
There are some efforts to address waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare, so that would theoretically lower Medicare premiums.
But for the general public, I would say not to expect big changes in premiums for medical coverage. There are now rules that insurers have to implement a minimum loss ratio of 80% or 85% (based on some variables). This means that 80 cents for every dollar of premium has to go towards the medical care (the claim). The remaining 20 cents go towards other costs (state taxes, administration, profits for the insurance company). But the 80-85% loss ratio isn't very different from what insurers currently use, so I wouldn't anticipate a big drop in cost. The legislation does more for access than it does for cost.
Your best bet is to find an employer who will pick up the tab for most or all of the premium, but that's becoming increasingly rare.
I know that doesn't answer your question directly, but like I said, there isn't an easy answer. It's not like the legislation says: You can't charge more than $50 for this policy.
Why does Jeanne Cooper get top billing on Young & Restless
R43, R44, Only fools season with bacon grease. Healthy people use garlic, onions, even a little generic curry powder, tomato paste, or perhaps creole seasoning. Don't forget the hot sauce. To be a good cook you must discover what flavors you like, and then try them on almost all bland food. Don't need pork fat for greens either.
Will the latest mass shooting affect the box office for The Hobbit?
Thank you, R55. I sort of got to the same answer by looking things up on the internet. It's all so vague. For some reason I thought that more people paying in would mean lower rates for everyone. Why call it Affordable Care then when not too many people will qualify for subsidies?
If the body's temperature is 98.6, why do I feel hot when it's 98 degrees?
R42/R59, I think there is a theory that more people being covered will lower rates, thus the name "Affordable" Care Act. It may be true, but I don't think it's a certainty. And if it's true, it will be an effect that occurs a couple of years down the road.

What is the most overrated film performance of all time?
Yes and no, r64.
The Roku allows you to stream netflix, amazon, hulu and has a lot of different channels available. However, if the person already has a blu-ray that they are using to stream Netflix and Hulu, there really is no point.
Unless, of course, they want obscure *free* movies and some crazy channels like back in the first days of cable TV.
R63, I'll bet she means Christmas Crackers. Do you have Cost Less Imports, or a discount international store near where you live? I'll bet they carry them. I remember laughing when Queen Elizabeth talked about using poppers for the holidays. Then she demonstrated pulling the string. LOL

If people have Guardian Angels, why do people get hit by buses or fall off cliffs and such. Are they asleep on the job?
[quote]If the body's temperature is 98.6, why do I feel hot when it's 98 degrees?
Your body continually generates heat. If the outside temperature is lower than your body temp, it's easy for heat to dissipate and be replaced by newly generated heat and your temperature is maintained at 98.6.
Raise the outside temperature to equal your body temperature, and your body has to work to dissipate heat - you have to sweat so evaporation carries the heat away.
To expand on what R80 said, you would feel normal naked at about 84 degrees, and with clothes 72. Individual results vary, of course.

R86, Instead of changing the ingredients, try letting them cook in a covered tin.
Or, r86, put a piece of bread in with them during storage. The cookies will take the moisture from the bread and keep them soft. You can also use less flour than the recipe calls for.
You're not going to die, r83. It's probably just an infection. Take the antibiotics they give you and don't push yourself.

[quote]Do celebs, in the throes of lust, really make their prospective partners sign confidentiality agreements, or is this an urban myth?
Urban myth. No "confidentiality agreement" of this type would be legally binding. You can't defame or disparage someone, true, but that's true regardless of the existence of an agreement. In reality, it would be an illegal infringement on free speech to force somebody to simply not talk about another person. It's not against the law to tell the truth!
R93, Euclid is also the name of a tree. Many streets are named after the trees that used to be there.

Yes, especially if he's into CBT and wearing a ball stretcher.
The US does not have a sophisticated system as R108 described and some states do not comply with Homeland Security rules and regulations for travel hence the need for passports. There is probably some corporate corruption going on also but in the future, TSA will not accept drivers licenses from those states. My state allows illegal immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. It is so lax, one can use an address of a smoke shop to get a license. The corruption is so bad, in six month's I'll need a passport to travel to NYC.

R89 in Scotland the first person to cross your threshold after the bells should be a dark haired man to bring luck. He should be carrying a small gift of either black bun (a type of cake) or coal - to ensure prosperity for the year. He would also bring a bottle of whisky. You should also open the windows at both front and back of the house to let the old year out and the new year in.

R I don't know the answer to your question but for the US and the rest of the world to use facial recognizition as a form of identification would require worldwide, technical cooperation. Does any country have the financial abilty to convert to that sort of identication?

I met a guy online we talked n connected deeply for about six months, in this time I gained shit lots of weight and when we met, he said I wasn't his type. We still spent 2 weeks together on that vacation ( a friend of mine was with us) and sometimes there was def something we also made out (once) when both drunk. I felt like he was totally stopping himself from developing any feelings at all, as we wld talk n connect n than he would say something to kinda distance himself. I've started loosing the weight, is it possible for him to like me again if I'm slim? N yeah I know to look for someone else n I am, but I do like him n wld like him to atleast remember me as slim.
This should be easy because I'm a woman & I gave some questions about men and obviously, I would never ask anyone I know:
Can you tell if you have an erection? This comes from all those jokes heard when the kid stands up & doesn't know.
I've noticed, when giving blow jobs, the balls shrink. Is that normal & what is it?
I switched to women after "being curious" and ending up loving it. Does that mean I was a latent dye or bi-sexual? I still find men attractive & wouldn't mind fucking one, but for sure my preference is for women.
Lastly, do guys really lick each other's assholes? Any fear there? Smell issues ? Please be honest.
Did anybody ever give his dad a spanking or spankings growing up, in fun, as in birthday spankings or otherwise? What goes on in hunting/fishing camps when all those guys get together? Is there spanking there too? Did any of you guys regard your fathers as handsome or good looking and did you get your looks from him?
R125 Men are very conscious of their erections. Trust me we are very aware when we are stiff.
Balls shrinking. It depends, sometimes the balls are big and sometimes they shrink. Then again you might have teabagged some small balls then!
Where you a latent dyke? Ummm you were probably bi. You are attracted to both sexes and still wouldn't mind being fucked by a guy so you were at the very least bi-curious.
Yes,rimjobs do happen. Some women actually rim too though it's rarer. Our mussy feels good when someone has their tingue in it. Oh and when they stimulate our male g spot at the same time as well by licking or using their hand on it.BTW you want to make sure the rimee's ass is clean. Make them take a shower. You don't want any ass cheese in your mouth,it's rather disgusting!
R69 Condom use is very important. Especially when it comes to anal. Penetrating our lovers and your partner has health risks just beyond HIV. God knows how many STDS one can get by screwing around on your husband. Some people like the thrill of blowing,sucking and swallowing and they are not worried by getting something.

R83, what you're feeling under your jawline is a lymph node. The fact that is enlarged means that your body has mounted an immunity defense, ie, fighting an infection. Hopefully your lymphatic system will triumph and you will have no symptoms.
R131 Yes, Google can be YOUR friend, too. There are exactly ZERO other mentions of a "euclid tree" on Google; only that photo, which someone obviously mislabeled. And nothing on Wikipedia either.
r124 - Go on a diet and lose weight for yourself.
The problem with online relationships is that appearance and physical chemistry is left out of the equation. It usually is one of the first hurdles to clear in a relationship. Online relationships can blossom on compatibility and then wilt on first look.
It might work -- it might be one of those moments when the heroine takes off her glasses and the hero realizes she beautiful. But, don't count on it.

Regarding Euclid --
Civil engineers setting up a town's streets would name every 13th street Euclid, because people were superstitous about living there.
12 Avenue, Euclid Avenue, 14 Avenue
Oh ... Google is your friend.
R124, Physical appearance often, but not always, reflects lifestyle and personal priorities. People who are significantly overweight view themselves and their world very differently. You might appear more confident if you were happy that you lost weight, dressed better, paid more attention to your grooming. Whether or not that would be enough to attract a specific man is an unknown quantity.
R136 Well he did say I had a beautiful face when we talked about things in person and we did get on well and when he was drunk he would sit next to me or touch me a lil. Whole different story when he was sober tho. Thank u for answering. The thing is I am giving up although I find it hard as the way we came to know each other was unique, I saw him in a documentary and liked him n contacted him online we connected pretty well and once we talked for hours n he started saying he likes me and so on. On the vacation I kept giving up and then we would talk and we had so much in common... It made me sad that we can't atleast give it a try. R138 Yeah my confidence was absoluetly Down, what I was wondering is if ist Ever happened to anyone Here that they found someone attraktive After loosing weight.

R155, I had a coworker who weighed over 400 pounds. He was a really nice guy, but he almost always stank, and his desk was about two feet from mine. He doused himself in cologne, which only worsened the sickly smell of sweat and something like a whiff from a distant trash incinerator. I'm pretty sure he showered every day, because his hair looked clean, but his lousy diet and all those rolls of fat were breeding grounds for stink.
We went out once after work, and I drove. It took more than a month to get his stank out of my car. I never went anywhere with him again.

R1, could be a lot if things. You may be stressed and cannot switch your brain off. Could be your diet. If you spend too much time in the room you sleep during the day, it isn't so good. Maybe you don't get enough fresh air/exercise. Try some herbal sleeping tablets they do work.

How come we haven't had any airplane threads lately?
BOSTON January 7, 2013 (AP)
An electrical fire filled the cabin of an empty Japan Airlines Boeing 787 with smoke on Monday after it landed in Boston following a non-stop flight from Tokyo.
The Massachusetts Port Authority's fire chief, Bob Donahue, said the fire began in an auxiliary battery pack that supplies the plane with power when the engines are shut down. Fire crews using infrared equipment found flames in a small compartment in the plane's belly and quickly brought the fire under control, he said.
"Something caused this battery pack to overheat, ignite," Donahue said, adding it's too soon to know the cause.
The flight landed normally at about 10:15 a.m. Its 173 passengers and 11 crew members had already gotten off the jet when a mechanic spotted light smoke about 15 minutes later and notified Massport.

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
