Comment How do we get the university to pay for our trips? (Score 5, Funny) 120

"Well, the only thing at amusement parks that causes many rapid shifts in the human body are roller coasters. Now we need a reason to ride them."

"I know, we'll make up some bullshit about kidney stones."

"Holy shit, it actually had an effect. Now we have an excuse to come back here for the next 3 weekends."

The Brits moved out of Benghazi 6 months earlier explicitly because the security situation in the town was completely fucked unless they wanted to invest a shitload more material, soldiers, and money. The ambassador requested more soldiers and a more secure embassy multiple times over the preceding 12 months. Anybody involved paying fucking attention knew damn well that the situation was untenable but either Hillary or the White House found it politically expedient to leave them to hang out to dry. Then they subsequently lied about it in the media.

Three mistakes. The first mistake was making a sex tape in the first place. This can be mitigated by using proper file encryption and not giving the file to anyone else. The second mistake was talking on the sex tape, thus personalizing it further. As above, proper encryption and lack of distribution can stop any consequences. The third mistake was sending it to her ex-boyfriend and three others. At which point she was up shit creek and everything that followed was her own damn fault for being a moron.

Hey, expecting the average pebkac to click a button saying they acknowledge the high probability that the website in question will infest their computer is entirely too difficult. As for TPB, it has been worse than normal recently, enough that I immediately run MWB and S&D after visiting.
