5th most painful page on the Internet

Still not posting eh? This page will really hurt you. Fire this baby up in a crowded office and anyone that doesn't recoil is obviously not human.

What's really scary is that I not only clicked on the link, I cleaned it up to see where the corrected version took me.

And if there's not enough posting, it's not even my fault! All I can do is post to the discussion lists.

Yeah that's a really toxic link. It actually broke the editor (it had nothing to do with me leaving a double quote out). The only way I can think to clean it up is too manualy edit the database table and thats one of the few things that would annoy Dan (you know that whole fear of the minestry of truth popping up etc etc).

So Dori are you saying you'd post on the main page if you could? Poke Poke...

Oh, I've hinted about wanting that any number of times. There's things I'd like to blog, but don't want to either under my own name, or on a page that family members read regularly. Oddly enough, all those types of links seem to fall into Flutterby's purview.

I just replied in length (rambling rant) to a couple of posts... but I don't think I am able to post to the main page. I wonder if ya'll would even want me to.. depending on my mood, I can be pretty stupid.

Ow. Okay, I've fixed the link, haven't gone back to figure out how it choked the parser and the editor, but I'll put that on my list. And meuon and Dori now both have post access.

As a result of having worked in a funeral home in one of my former lives, my gross-o-mater is set a bit higher than most folks'. Knowing that, I once ventured into an internet tasteless picture archive to see just what other people thought was so tasteless. Most of the stuff affected me as little as I expected, but then I saw a picture that so disturbed me that I turned off the computer, got up, and left the building for a walk.

Having said that, I've avoided clicking this link particularly because of the description that "anyone that doesn't recoil is obviously not human." I'm curious what it might be, but, since I'm pretty confident of my humanity, and since I'm not sure what kind of physical or psychic pain might be involved, do I really want to see what's behind that curtain?

Idunno, I mean the horror of the link escapes most words. Let me splain...no...let me analogize. Kathy Lee is a 6 on my wigout scale. The Hasselhoff video I linked would be a solid 7. That page is a spinal tap 11! Smile starter indeed. I just (for some reason) followed the link again.....ew ew EW! now I need a dram of single malt just to stop the shivers.
