    Slurred speech and upside down pictures, someone had too much sake before selling their Kawasaki.

      [humor]The preferred CL usage is “saling” with “saleing” optional (if not too hungover).[/humor]

      [achy morning Nihongo corey]
      Kawa has several meanings, from hide/skin, to area, to river/stream, to moral story.
      Saki is the tip of a pencil/stylus or a small peninsula.

      So, the construction of Kawasaki as a place name probably goes back to a small peninsula with a stream. But, the thought of an Aesop fable as stylus point is amusing.

      Sparky has drunkenly invoked a number of images, though.

      Wa is a counter, enumerator or ring/hoop, or resultant peace/harmony
      Sa is make or help or variance/difference.
      Ka is addition/increase or a chapter/counter or good/excellent/pleasing
      Ka is also a suffix of interrogation or of temporizing.

      So, we can assemble kawa wa sa ka as
      Leather Ring Variant Item (are you interested?)

      Ergo, Sparky is a bait-n-switch Dom in the SMBD crowd.
      (Since being a “resultant good by making a difference chapter” is highly unlikely.)

      It’s my belief that the seller was posting this ad while driving (next ban: Craigslist while driving). S/he lost control, the motorcycle did a full flip, and that’s why s/he typed, “Kawwassaaska” and also why the pictures are not upside down: they’re a full action shot. But it’s the last picture the seller will ever take.

      However, WPC seems to have the most convoluted and odd criteria for banning a site I’ve ever seen. It banned Google Images, but I could still search for something in Google, and then on the results page, switch over to the images page, so that my search was now for images.

          I’m 15, but Parental Controls only has 3 settings: Convent-Strict, Regular, and Off. I’m on regular, all the more because I’m 15, and my dad knows what he’d be doing in the summer were he 15 and home alone on a computer without Parental Controls.

          Okay, good point. Of course, if you’re smart enough to use the word hegemony in context, then you can probably scare up plenty of spank material without running athwart of parental controls. Betake yourself to the public library, young padawan. There you will find many seamy, steamy samples of suggestive prose. It’s educational, and it’s got all the smut all a growing boy needs!

          Being the parent of a 15 year old, I agree with Astro’s Dad. However, I got tired of “Mom I can’t get to this site”. I finally saw the light and agreed with Isaac — there is plenty of smut and junk everywhere else he goes. Hopefully, by now, I’ve raised him somewhat better than that (I know, I’m not expecting miracles).

          I think I’d be a weird parent of a teenager. I’m aware of what a 15-year-old boy might find on the internet when left home alone all day. I’m aware that even one as intelligent as Astro here would at least be curious. But I don’t think I’d care. Say all you want about how it’s different when you actually have a 15-year-old boy, but I really don’t think pron* is bad or unhealthy. I’d certainly have a line, I’d be concerned if he was watching snuff films or something, but I’d probably use monitoring rather than blocking in order to find out if I should be concerned.

          I guess I’ve always found this whole topic confusing. As the parent of five, plus a couple of temporary folks (foster care), I never could really figure out the “panic” reaction some parents have to “nekkid pichers”. We had a couple of very good friends who allowed their boys to watch any and all violent “action” films (killings, explosions, bloodshed) were not a problem, but heaven forbid that a bare bosom should be shown. We were criticized for being ‘bad parents’ because our kids knew anatomy and basics of sexuality at an early age.

          Personally, I’d rather have them exposed to sex than to murder and mayhem – but then again, I’m not.a.prude….

          Well, my parents’ view is anything I’m curious about, come ask them, because the internet has, and I quote “skewed and heavily inaccurate misrepresentations of human sexuality”, and they want to ensure that I have the accurate and correct information.

          Well, Astro, at least your parents are ready to answer questions. I guess I’d go the route of monitoring rather than blocking more because after spending three years in law school, I am very familiar with the “you don’t know what you don’t know” problem, meaning, you can’t ask the right questions without some context. Even if the context is way off-base, at least you have something to ask about.

          However, this is not to criticize your parents. They have a perfectly reasonable approach, it’s just different from what I think I’d do. πŸ™‚

    The Battle for YSaC

    The sky is just lighting up with the dawn, revealing the fertile plain between the hills. Before the day is out, it will be scorched and destroyed, made into a barren wasteland. Drums can be heard from over the hill to the north, and a black banner can be seen slowly peeking over. Within the space of a minute, a line of one hundred brutish horsemen has appeared on the hilltop. Their leader is a grim man with a wispy goatee and a beer belly, and he stinks of cheezburger.

    Suddenly, from the hill to the south, the clarion fanfare of a bugle rends the air. Galloping to the top of the hill is the oddest bunch of beings ever assembled. Among them are Montezuma II, a rat with an unblubler, a large colorful bird, a human Taco in a sombrero, a moose, a Goddess, the Statue of David, a Dahlek in a Tutu, a decorated Captain, a pirate, a pair of eyebrows, a Baconti, a profuse amount of cats and living quilts, and many, many more. The group is carrying everything from swords to shotguns to jumbo-sized pens, the kind you get at giftshops. At their head, on Ostrimu-back, sits a Llama, berobed in a nun’s habit and wimple. Her arm raises, and from the deepest part of her diaphragm comes the battle cry, signaling the charge against the evil forces of the Cheezburger network of sites.

    “Kawwassaaskaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!”

    The ragtag band of YSaCies surges forward with additional cries of “Not.A.Lion!” and “Coffee!”, surprising the armies of Cheezburger. The clang of metal on metal rings out. The sound of gunshots rent the air. Cries of dismay come from the Cheezburgers as they are squirted with all manner of liquids from water guns. It is a long and epic battle, and, like most long and epic battles, would be boring to read all the details of in text, but, were this a movie, would be recounted in full. At the end of the day, a cry of victory comes up from the YSaCies, those denizens of Kclhm, as the Khan of the Cheezburgers presents the Llama-Nun with his sword, and his hegemony over lulz is ended.

I’ve been a worm, the Joker, the Joker, the Joker, an A in a circle with a sword through the middle, John Lennon as a Walrus, Jamie Hyneman as a Walrus, and Montezuma. None of those are feminine.

        Due primarily to newness, I am not yet a fully-versed in the latency inherent in posting. Therefore, I would like you to consider my earlier post (that is actually below) to be located here instead: ____________ . I promise to do better and not be so focused on ponies (of any size or color). When I was about six years old, a pony tried to do a really naughty thing to another pony while I was strapped in a saddle on the second pony. I don’t care to have anything to do with ponies any more thank you very much.
        I promise to not post things about ponies in the wrong place anymore as long as there are no ponies mentioned in the string at all.

    Now that even weekend posts will have a hundred comments, “we” may need some way to keep track of what is going on. Our bossfellas will also need some way to ride herd on the don’t-get-how-to-be-a-corey types that could appear, too.
