The model gorgeous streetwalker with a heart of gold as opposed to the reality of a scrawny, scabbed meth head in flip flops and tattered shorts who will steal you blind as seen on Cops.

Hey, penis breath, the thread was from a fucking month ago. It had two parts. The fuck you talking about, 5 years ago, ya sperm burper.

It was from several months ago. Sorry we're not all Aspies who can remember every single thread out of the thousands on here.

by Anonymousreply 2611/21/2020

Several months ago? The last post was last month, until someone found it and posted 15 minutes ago.

It had almost the exact same title.

And almost every post in this one was mentioned in that one.

If a CNN movie takes place in 1966, every car is a 1966 model and every girl is wearing Mary Quant mini skirts and go go boots, disregarding the fact that society is always a bit more mixed up than that and most of the population was still catching up. A 1960 impala would have only been six years old. Not all moms were wearing Carnaby Street Mod.

So r27 people can't start another thread? Why not?

And every vehicle is absolutely pristine and appears freshly waxed.

Not a ding or a dent or missing hubcap or a spec of dirt (unless the plot calls for it). Almost like they use collectors cars or something.

I worked for ten years with cops.

IME, cops put on weight after recruit school and their uniforms get tight, not in a good way. In their defense, there's a lot of crap they sometimes wear under the uniform, like a protective vest. They also have a ton of shit on the outside of their uniforms: radio at shoulder, pepper spray, baton, Taser, real gun, handcuffs. It's actually not very sexy to see a cop with all that stuff attached to their uniforms.

by Anonymousreply 3211/21/2020

R29, that’s actually a great question. You know what? I was one of those queens criticizing repetition (I’m actually the READ THE GODDAMN THREAD Troll, which I still enjoy being because repetition within one thread is just pure laziness and takes away merit from the original poster), but you are right. Why not?

If you’ve already read too much on a subject, don’t even bother joining in on the next thread bringing up the same subject. Reader fatigue will take care of any subjects that have been trivialized to death, without the need for some snide bitch to be telling anyone off.

The length of this thread will speak by itself, one way or another. Cheers.

For instance, many on DL already know what a Doris Day Parking Spot is (a characterization I introduced decades ago), yet it still managed to produce a chuckle on someone who hadn’t heard the term. Mission accomplished, and not in the Bush way.

People who ring doorbells incessanty until someone opens the door. I've never seen someone do that in real life and it would be considered rude.

Also, people who come in through front door and leave it wide open while they stand in the entryway.

Ending a phone call without saying goodbye, bye, later, see ya, or something like that. On tv or movies they usually just hang up.

If I’m making an appointment I usually end it with ‘thank you’, but at least that’s some sort of closing. I hate when they just end the call on tv. Rude.

by Anonymousreply 5911/22/2020

The TV always being on at just the right time for the main character to catch an important news story that relates to a mystery they're trying to solve. Even worse is the shoebox of newspaper clippings the killer always leaves hanging around that details every piece of backstory the lead character was having questions about. I just watched that Sarah Paulson movie Run on Hulu a few nights ago and this had one of these scenes and it made me ask "why would someone keep that around?"
