Re: Thread for the in-Sex-perienced...

I feel the need to preface myself because I don't want to be misunderstood. I don't mean to disrupt the flow of the thread, but this is something I've had to say for a long time, and this seems like the best place to do it. I'm a 21 year old male, and I find sex disgusting. I always have. At least,...

I was long-sighted and had to wear glasses since I was four years old. Then, when I was about thirteen I got fed up and decided not to wear them in the hope of ridding myself of the condition after I read about brain exercises for Alzheimer's patients and thought about the principle. I didn't wear t...

Smoking is a great thing. When I have a free night I ring my mates and we all go out and get pissed. I remember Dylan Moran saying that we measure how good a night is on how damaged we are when we wake up. 'Good night?' 'Oh it was great...

You are 14. Your next five years can best be spent hiding in a little box, outside of which your parents can leave you meals.

Also, if the thought of writing poetry strikes you, don't. Just don't. Seriously, the world has enough of it.

The Russian for wolf (phonetically 'volk') is the same as the German for nation. Gives a clue to the attitude towards Germans in Russian culture. In Latin, 'unsheath' literally means 'to remove from the vagine', exemplis gratia (Latin props!), 'Aeneas pulled his sword from his vagina'. The Russian c...

For some reason the typewriter I just bought came with a strange typeset: it's this funny emulation of handwriting, which is entirely illegible and completely pointless.

It's called Duplais and it's about a half-litre bottle I think. Absinthe is still legal in the UK. The only places I know of in which it is banned are France, USA and Australia. I'm going to put a pitcher of water in the fridge and get some sugar as well for it. It should be nice. My throat won't ha...

My preferred method at night is to flash the headlights so they know it's safe to cross, then floor it about a second and a half later. It's hilarious.

Don't do it during the day though - you might get caught.

One trick with anything that is regularly rhymed is to break from the rhyme scheme at an especially significant point in order to make it stand out.
