Emerald City Comic Con Panties

Emerald City Comic Con Panties

Nerdy panties found their way into my sphere of consciousness today. I’ll lay out the details here in a much more boring way than what’s really going on inside my head. It will mostly involve pictures.

First, the “featured image” of this post was gratuitously stolen from http://www.80stees.com/categories/batman.

So, there’s Etsy with its plethora of nerdy women:

Nerds With Vaginas

I was caught up in the ECCC traffic this afternoon (on the bus), and noticed how all these really hot girls in super nerdy outfits were being followed by throngs of less sexy nerds. It occurred to me that these women have really carved out their niche.

And I’m probably late to the party. It seems there’s a whole niche industry built up around selling nerd panties.

Ten questions for a Romney White House

Ten questions for a Romney White House

Once the White House is Romney’s home, how will official White House procedure mesh with his religious convictions? Besides the obvious – Will the White House include reproductive health coverage in its insurance package? – as an ex-Mormon, I have a few other questions that have popped up in recent months.

1. Would coffee or tea be served to guests and staff? Would the Romneys keep these items in their home? Will there be religious exemptions (PDF^) to common courtesy when he’s in charge? Will they revise the presidential portraits to reflect the time-immemorial No Smoking policy of the White House?

2. Would he appoint czars posthumously? Would they get back pay? If so, will 10% tithing be surrendered to the Church (as they likely have already been posthumously converted).

3. Will we ever watch a televised address without picturing him in his underwear? Also, is the White House cleaners going to be specially outfitted for handling the family’s special undies?

4. In accordance with not only Church doctrine, but also The Ten Commandments, will he take Sundays off? Will the staff? Not that any other politician who waves the Ten Commandments in our faces every election cycle has ever held themselves to the morals they want to enforce upon the rest of us, but it only takes one theocrat to set a precedent!

5. Does he plan to serve breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner on the first Sunday of each month – “Fast Sunday“? This is the day, once a month, where all Mormon children begin to formulate their opposition to their parents’ indoctrination. So I don’t blame the Romneys if this is one of those tenets they overlook when they’re cherry-picking what to wear on their sleeve and what not to.

6. Is Monday going to remain “Family Home Evening?” I actually liked this part, but it was hard even for my single mom to indulge us with once a week. It’s got to be tough for a busy, busy President.

7. To what extent will he live up to his obligations of service to the Church? Will he be given a political exemption by the Church? Maybe he gets work credit as long as he’s doing LDS leadership curriculum-approved work.

8. Will his Bishop have top-secret clearance in order to hear his confessions? To whom will he confess his war crimes?

9. Will the Church allow non-Mormon Secret Service Officers into the Temple, or will they all be required to be members in good standing, with Temple Recommends? Wouldn’t that violate federal hiring guidelines?

10. And finally, having nothing to do with his White House policies, will he be sworn in on a copy of the Book of Mormon? If so, will it be as it was originally revealed by God to the Prophet Joseph Smith? Or will it be the heavily edited and revised version that Mormons currently call the literal Word of God?

I look forward to finding the answers to these questions and more once our crack journalists and Edward R. Murrow (PDF^) inspired media outlets have  a chance to do their jobs. But now that I think of it, I wouldn’t care about the answers to any of these questions if the media were doing its job.

Hot Summer Day in Seattle

Hot Summer Day in Seattle

Summer finally arrived in Seattle the day after the 4th of July weekend.  That’s pretty normal around these parts.

It’s been getting warmer every day since the 4th, and today the weathermen say it’s going to be 94 degrees.   Too hot for some folks around here.  I can hear them complaining now…

Driving in to work today, (Why is the weather always the nicest during the work week?) I was listening to KPLU, and today’s installment of “Record Bin Roulette” was titled “Summertime.”  One of the bits they played was Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch saying: 

“Let me just go put something on.  I’ll go into the kitchen to get dressed.  When it’s hot like this you know what I do?  I keep my undies in the icebox.”

I went searching for a clip of this on YouTube and did not find it, but I did find this one, and it might even be better.

Lady Gaga Nip Slip at 2009 VMAs

Lady Gaga Nip Slip at 2009 VMAs

In what appears to be a nod to Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga experienced a slight wardrode malfunction (more precisely – a lack of function) during her award acceptance at the 2009 MTV VMAs.  During the show, she changed her wardrobe no less than5 times but only this outfit offered the classic Nip Slip (technically it didn’t slip, but who cares.)

In somewhat related, but weirder news, during her live performance one of her dancers paid homage to the upcoming Swine Flu Pandemic by wearing a white surgical mask made out of a g-string…

We hope this will clear up the confusion over the urban legend surrounding the biological gender of Lady Gaga. Yes, that is her vulva you can see through her panties. Yes, she has a vagina. No, she’s not a hermaphrodite.

 

How to have Sex in a Car

How to have Sex in a Car

Oh how I wish this video were available for me 20 years ago.  I could have used the pointers back then.  After much trial and a few errors I finally got the hang of it…

For those who are new to having sex in a car, this video is for you.

Why it’s good luck to wear your underwear inside out

Why it’s good luck to wear your underwear inside out

The cool thing is that when you wear your underwear inside out…

Now you get to wear that pair twice. Here’s why you won’t go to hell for it.

1st time you wear them, and they’re inside out:

knickers, panties, underwear
Undies, panties, underwear, pants, knickers, underpants

Say you get in an accident and someone notices you have your panties on inside out. You’re dying and the priest who’s giving you last rights asks you to confess all your sins. Toward the end of your list, he looks at you and says, “and, my dear, you’ve worn those panties two days in a row. All you did was turn them inside out so you could get away with it.” You can honestly say “no, it was dark. I, I, sputter, I wear my panties inside out for good luck…arrrrr*cough*gasp.” You’re not lying, therefore you won’t go to hell.

2nd time you wear them (obviously the first scenario didn’t happen if this case ever comes):

You get into an accident and they strip you down to put a tourniquet on your gushing femoral. They don’t even notice the dirty undies since they’re soaked in blood and whatever else might be coming out of you at the moment. And since they’re right side out, there’s really no question as to their cleanliness. Last rights are administered and before your last gasping breath, you say “I wore my panties twice.” No hell for you. Plus, he’s obligated by god and the government to never tell your mom.

If you survive the day…

If you get luckier than simply not ending up in hell, there is a strong possibility that those dirty underwear have accumulated a significant deposit of personal body odors from various sources. A non-insignificant portion of the population have a pleasant, possibly arousing, reaction to their own stench. In fact, there is evidence that our brain chemistry changes a little when we’re aroused and things we find absolutely disgusting when we are in our right mind get a pass when we’re horny. So, lucky you! Those stinky, dirty, crusty and stiff panties you’ve been excusing yourself for because “it’s lucky to wear your underwear inside out!” might actually give you a libidinal boost as you’re getting undressed for bed.

A quickie with your own hand is a perfect way to end the day. Sleep tight.

Apple TV’s 32nd Anniversary Announcement

Apple TV’s 32nd Anniversary Announcement

You Know What You WantQuietly this weekend, Apple, Inc., released a minor update to its so-far disappointing Apple TV software. The update, delivered around 3 o’clock Saturday morning, was quietly announced in a press release on ReutersYE (Youth Education). The computer maker and self-described New Media Darling has struggled to make the Apple TV, once known as the iTV prior to its launch, relevant in an age of Tivo, BitTorrent, Netflix, and XBox Live saturation of the passive entertainment, family-room market.

The previous update, “Take Two”, was meant to herald a new era for Apple’s only foray into the set-top box fray. No previous attempt by any technology company has managed the ubiquity of DVD players, VHS, or even the relatively small console gaming platforms.

This update, however, has responded to the market’s response to their first and second attempts at relevance. Among the user friendly improvements are the following items:

1. The ability to download podcasts from your Apple TV and have them saved to the Mac or PC to which it is synced.

2. Dynamic “genres” list for movies. Any genre you add your personally backed-up movies to will be listed in Apple TV’s movies/genres menu.

3. Better shading of menu items to produce a more “live action” appearance while waiting for the click of the IR remote control signal to register.

4. A reflection has been added to certain interface elements.

5. An “Add to Queue” option has been added to the previous “Play” and “Download” option in the “Podcasts” section.

6. Further enhancing the previous feature, a sort of “Playlist” feature has been incorporated so that you don’t have to return to a menu every time a one or two minute clip ends so that you can choose another one.

7. “Smart” playlists, enabling the pre-scheduling of up to 6 hours or non-stop, successive podcasts, music videos, movies, and television shows, have been added to the iTunes software. These playlists, which can be synced to and played on your Apple TV in an attempt to mimic the standard environment in which consumers of entertainment appreciate their widescreen, surround sound, darkened room home-theater setup from their couch, seem to be an attempt by Apple to “catch up” with the immature, yet persistent, crowd of home theater early arrivals who have offered these features for years.

8. Support has been added for a new remote that looks remarkably similar to the first gen iPod Nano. A small screen for quick menu selection, a circular “click wheel” (a technology pioneered by apple but seemingly abandoned with its recent “touch” products), and the diminutive form factor with a 6 button interface that has served hand held tech from Apple for so long.

9. A revamp of the “search” keyboard for online services. Instead of a square, highly unusable letter grid, Apple has adopted a common typing interface across all of its Apple TV interfaces. Coupled with the new scroll-wheel remote, entering text into search fields has remarkably improved usability, once a hallmark of Apple products, which cannot be matched by any other.

10. Removal of the distinction between the computer to which an Apple TV is synced and the content shared on the network. All content is available by selecting its source, similar to the way it was made available in the previous version of the Apple TV software.

These are the ten most interesting updates. The revision also includes a number of bug fixes from improving the response of the unit to clicks of the remote to close to real-time syncing between the Apple TV and its coupled iTunes installation. In a previous version these features were sorely missing or incalculably buggy.

In the first part of the new millennium, Apple Inc revolutionized the personal, portable entertainment industry. Today Apple Inc is a leader in portable entertainment technology with market leading positions in wireless communications, the iPhone, pocketable media libraries, iPod (Touch)™, and the yet unannounced iWiiPod portable theater system and gaming device.
