Why?

Annual sales on the porn industry are 2.6-3.9 BILLION. Someone is watching it, err should I say everyone!
That may be true, but I never know what future job I will apply to. The internet is forever, and the ubiquity of porn does not figure into a potential employer's decision. A potential employer cares about how any particular candidate will reflect on him.

Sad but true although the people who protest most about it tend to consume it the most.

My in house vacuum system flooded today - all the way to the turbine, the work of an errant plumber who connected the wrong lines - that's probably a $50,000 dollar repair. One mistake will probably cost this guy his entire business as I do not intend on eating this bill - I sure hope he's bonded.

Yikes that sucks for both of you!

Is in-house vacuum system like an industrial version of a central vacuum?  We had one of those in the house I grew up in.  Several vacuum outlets in the house, just plug in a hose and get to vacuuming, nothing else to drag around.  Drawbacks:  catching your toddler kneeling in front of an outlet and feeding Fisher Price people into it..."Bye-bye.....bye-bye......bye-bye"

Oh no - this is where I work Colleen. It is an industrial central vac system. I am out of the house and it it hers and the kids.

I understood Marty!  Was just comparing my experiences with the central vacuum we had growing up.  Obviously the type you use is a different order of magnitude!

They usually don't show those types of films on Disney.
Fine, FLY, you've broken me. You've made me curious enough about you.

So answer me. What is this Disney-obsessed persona you put on? Given your look — balding adult male — one could easily get ooged by it, associating it with a single male in a white van with a bloody mattress in the back and a bag of butterscotches between the ripped-up bucket seats.



Yes, it's an odd road on which I walk. But I can't help the way I appear.

FLY doesn't know anything about porn, as he allegedly believes that masturbation is disgusting and doesn't do it.

About 1/3rd of this is true, perhaps more.

That people at work hadn't ever eaten tortilla chips with salsa covered cream cheese before. They loved it. Hah.

In my closet I have nine toques and balaclavas of various colours and materials. Amazing what you'll start accumulating when you move somewhere cold.

Americans don't know what a toque is, they call them beannies.
