How would that even work? Is it that if you vomit once your organs are rearranged forever or would it shuffle them around every time? Could you vomit enough times to get them back to their original positions or would that make it worse until your intestines are knotted around your heart and your lungs are pressed up against your bladder and breathing makes you feel like you need to pee?

I had stuff to do today, but now I'm just going to spend my day contemplating organ rearrangement. Seems productive enough.

Today, I turned on the TV. News was on. They said it was now clear the EHEC outbreak in Germany was caused by E. Coli. No shit. EHEC is a class of E. Coli.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

The "logic" that was used was that your organs aren't all touching each other, which means that there's empty spaces inside your body, which apparently means that when you're sick, the heaving motion makes them move into the empty spaces.

Do American football players vomit more than other athletes? Has only heard of runners vomiting frequently. Would rather not perform a search for statistics on this.

I don't think the heaving motion of vomiting would be the only thing capable of jostling organs. Slamming your body into other people at high speeds as well as getting slammed by other people at high speeds and all kind of angles would, I imagine, give your organs quite the shuffle.

Might pick astronauts before that. Lacks the punch of a focused impact, but a stiff compression of the entire body seems like it could cause permutations. Chooses supermodels first though, due to the measures some resort to in order to remain employed.

Is glad to have selected the incorrect interpretation, at any rate. Apologies for the error.

Heh, it would take quite a bit of padding to save anything from UPS. But yeah, I'd have to say average rugby players get much more beat up than the hardest playing football players. It's too bad rugby isn't more popular, we didn't even have a team at my high-school in Florida. I know they have teams in most Georgia schools.

I always thought the padding American football players wear is more dangerous than not wearing it. Like, if some particularly violent accident happens, your neck could get stuck in a bad position or something, whereas without armour, it wouldn't get stuck because there's nothing to pin it there.

Is it actually allowed for American football players to play without armour? Or do they just call that rugby?

They need to wear the armor, and it is safer but it also allows the players to do more violent moves than the could without the armor. So when players do get injured its usually more severe and takes them out of the game or worse. It's why the officials make penalties for tackling in dangerous ways like with your helmet leading in, or aiming for the quarterback's helmet, etc.

I feel like I would get a lot of these if I could talk to other drivers on the road.

"Yes, a stop sign means you stop the car."

"No, rolling through the intersection at 15mph is not the same as stopping."

"Weaving around ambulances and heavy traffic so hard your jeep is on 2 wheels is, in fact, a Bad Idea."

"If you're too drunk to keep your car in a straight line, driving on the highway at 35mph is not an acceptable solution."

"The left lane is for passing. Do not sit in the left lane going the exact same speed as the people in the right for 20 miles."

"Those lines down the middle of the road generally mean that you drive on one side of them or the other. The same goes for parking space lines."

"This red light is long, but not long enough to do your makeup/type an email/find whatever it is in your glove compartment you're looking for."

"If you pull your car halfway out into the road before stopping to look to see if any cars are coming from the side, it sort of defeats the purpose of stopping."

Hmm, to an extent this depends on whether they were referring to sex work or to sex workers.

If it's the former, an assertion that sex work is not something that they want to exist then I would say that it's not an unreasonable position to take, with various arguments that could be made to justify it (e.g. that sex work is harmful to those involved, that it creates unrealistic ideas about sex more generally, that it is immoral.) I don't necessarily agree with this position - there are arguments from both libertarian & pragmatic bases - but it's not an unreasonable position to take.

If, OTOH, they were saying that sex workers are, as people, unwanted, then yes, that's not fucking OK.

A person is not a profession, unless you're deliberately using very awkward wording. So I'd guess he meant the former.

Take your hands off my light-beating- and remote-stick!

(If you're responsible for somewhere with lights reachable with a stick, then I highly recommend finding a nice boathook of a suitable length for when they need a small twerk and can't be fussed with getting a ladder. Also good for "assisting" with "training" actors who miss their marks for the critical specials - and, depending on design and the venue, solo performances that last just a bit too long.

Some more to add to the list:
  • "No, you're supposed to kill the creepers, not the other way around! *smack over the back of the head*"
  • "What the fuck did I just watch?"
  • "Why are you humping the dog/cat/fish?"
  • "Empty the bins" doesn't tell me anything, which bins do you mean? For all I know, you could be asking me to empty the bins for another house in another country!
  • When someone is using noise-cancelling headphones, getting their attention requires you to get off your butt and actually go tap them on the shoulder, not yell at them from across the house!

No no no no no. The doctors and science were only able to help the little girl because they prayed, and god decided that just this once he would not be a dick. So he gave the doctors all these abilities they never had before! Clearly.

They're not. Just hating on the people who deny a person's achievements (in this case, a doctor's work, and all the medical advances ever made to make it possible) by calling it an act of God. Like, imagine you've just pulled someone out of a flooded river or something, saving their life. And then they turn around to you and go "God saved me!". You'd be a bit miffed, no? You would at the very least be entitled to reply "Actually, my name's xxxxx, but you can call me God if you want".
