This, despite 17 different ways he tried to pull this off. (Go look. It’s pretty incredible.)
He was almost* vice president.
Yes, I would enjoy a compare/contrast betwixt the Rielle and the Monica, in terms the magnitude of damage done, measures taken to cover, psychology behind doing so, etc.
*Exact definition of “almost” exclusive to the mind of Obama, but pretty conceivable to the rest of us.
I was asked a million questions before I signed up, this was not one of them. Hi. You may call me Majority Stagg.
I learned this while reading bayonet training might be axed from Basic Training. And yes, I enjoyed using the sharp metal verb here very much.
In this new life where I take a great interest in such matters, this is another item on the list in my head. Now, I used to write here about the contents of my head, and will continue to do so—but a milblog this will not be.
Bayonets don’t mix well with cute Batman pics.
Add to that, I didn’t actually realize how much I wrote about political opinions. With that impulse no longer an appropriate source of fodder, choosing posts here just got tricky all of a sudden. So. Thank you for your patience while I sort out my content.
And google, “how to win a fistfight.”
Yes. Of course the last two options are my favorite. I’m still me, after all.
- Me: Can you point me toward the laundry stuff?
- Hardware Man: Right this way.
- Me: Would you mind reaching down the bleach for me? Clearly I have a hot night planned.
- Hardware Man: Like my mom always said, "There's no time to start drinking like the present."
The world of social media is flat and I’m pretty sure I just got to the end like the cover of “Where the Sidewalk…” So you can’t friend a stranger on Facebook simply because his reply to one of your friends statuses made you laugh, but you could follow a stranger on Twitter for the same reason, and yet you have no where to worry about such things but your blog.
Lols. Columbus is “Idle.”
With the Pope advocating for an all-out blog-olution, and the top story at the New York Times being a very complicated and thorough step-by-step of how to protect your privacy on Facebook, it might be time for this. Want to keep it simpler and safer?
Here are Five Tips to Keeping Yourself Safe on the Internet:
- You are your own best and only privacy setting. Do not post anything online you don’t want visible to everyone for the rest of time. Privacy on the internet does not exist and all content is FOREVER.
- Don’t announce anything that might be subject to change. This includes and is not limited to topics like marital status on Facebook. Marriage is forever? Not always. Imagine this in your mind’s eye: ♥ Jake went from being married to being single. Want to field that comment thread? I bet not. Similarly the notation of “It’s Complicated” serves only to complicate things for yourself. Abstinence saves.
- The internet exists for two reasons: to entertain and to inform. (I would argue that “communication” is merely a subset function of these.) That said, everything you post should comply with one of these. In so doing you will automatically begin discussing thoughts more so than actions, and the tendency to reveal details that are too mundane or too intimate about yourself will decrease dramatically.
- Don’t post anything that can not be perfectly understood as a stand-alone entity. If there’s a picture of you at an outrageous costume party which appears suspect without the explanation “OH yeah! That was an outrageous costume party, I was dressed as Zombie Miley Cyrus,” don’t. Similarly with text: If you’re not confident what you are saying won’t be misconstrued out of context, keep it offline.
- Protect yourself by protecting others. Develop reciprocal internet trust with people online by always asking permission before quoting private conversations, and use the same discretion you’d like afforded yourself in tagging, commenting, and wall posts.
So! I guess PopeBlog.god was right. The Golden Rule exists, even in digital format.
