I'm relatively new to DL, having decided to give my future $18 of savings to DL rather than just going ahead and renting some more rough trade this month.
I've seen your Caftan and Earrings comments and think they are hysterical. So I googled, "Caftain and Earrings" to find ALL of your posts and there are 3 full pages of them.
But my question to you is: What do you do when you are in a public place and the caftain gets caught tightly between your cheeks in your butt crack? Grab it? Ignore it? Subject it to the 5 second rule? What.
Pay some motorcycle dude in boots and tight jeans to insert his hand in there and keep it there for a few minutes then gradually have him squeeze the buttcheeks hard til they squeak. When he leaves on his merry way, have him pull the caftan back out again.
[quote]you are in a public place and the caftain gets caught
A gentleman always sprays his butt-crack with PAM non-stick cooking spray before donning his caftan.
I find the caftan and earrings shtick quite sad but not nearly as sad as the guy who actually likes it.
I'm sure a grade-school kid wouldn't even find the shtick amusing.
You're able to get rough trade for only $18.00?
you can't even get a decent pair of earrings for $18 - let along a nice caftan!
You can get the earrings, the caftan and the rough trade in Turkey all for only $18. I've done it.
OP, contrary to emerging popular opinion as voiced in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Rough Trade Weekly, it is perfectly acceptable, if not preferable, to present oneself this way as a "Caftan Kootie" in such popular establishments as Dollar Store, Piggly Wiggly, 99 Cents-Or-Less.
However, it is suggested that a darker caftan fabric be chosen, lest you unleash it from your man-crack with a heavy personal stain for the world to observe in the checkout lines of these fine establishments.
R3, You are a HOOT!
Ditto R9, the hoot thing and your personal stains.
Well, I for one think it's nice that we got a new member who enjoys one of our sillier things. Sophistication is so wearying after a time.
"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...
