Don't even get me started on Special K commercials.
Or ads:


Every single one of them is about fitting into tight clothes and bathing-suits because apparently that already skinny white woman just ain't skinny enough.

The one I hate most started off as what I thought was an Ad for a new jean shop: it was a woman walking around the store nervously at first and then it showed that all the jeans on the racks and shelves where labeled with phrases like "Looking good!" and a voice-over came on and said something like "Ditch the sizes, wear what feels good" and I was SO EXCITED thinking this was something for a new shop or a renovation to an existing department store or something and then it showed that woman pouring a big bowl of diet cereal and it was for Special goddamn K weight loss shit.

Don't tell me to starve myself on your cardboard cereal, Kellogg's.

Reminds me of my dad's understanding of "viruses".

GameFAQs was a chatroom (apparently all forums are the same thing as chatrooms) where young people went. Young people made viruses and therefore GameFAQs had lots of viruses.

It's ok. I was douped by that commercial too.

Exactly

In one breath we're told not to be concerned about size, and then told to starve ourselves on cereal flakes to be thin.

Fuck that noise.

I made the serious move to kiss Boyfriend, which then made us a couple. He and I where talking and doing a pretty equal amount of flirty flirts before that though.

I seriously hope that when I go back to college next semester that, if I haven't just given up on romance, someone else asks me out. I will never be able to work up the courage to do that.

I've had too many things just blow up in my face from me asking...

Even I'll admit, I find that part of the video hilarious.

I was I could scream at a woman's ass and get away with it.

I think the entire thing is pure genius. It's a perfect combination of crazy, sexy and funny.

Dude, we all know why anyone of us can't scream at a woman's ass and get away with it.

I feel you, Bisected. Goodness forbid we have company over for ten minutes, we'll have to clean the whole house! (This, might I add, also includes our unfinished basement that nobody actually goes into. There is a chair blocking the doorway that I have to move if I want to go down there to do cosplay work, and that's the only thing it's used for besides storage.)

SIGH.

Also all of the sentiments about Special K, I completely agree.

Fuuuuck. SOMETHING is keeping my laptop from accessing my wireless (I had to use my phone's portable hotspot), and it's been doing this with increasing outages for days now. I can't figure out if it's my laptop itself or the modem. And I don't have the money to get it professionally looked at.

Is your system actually connected, but you can't go anywhere? Do you get an error message? Is there a little icon next to the wireless icon, like..is it recognizing you have a wireless card?

It could be a number of things, could you give me more info?
