Things I've Learned on the Internet Lately - the Fashion Mini-Issue

Fashion is becoming very dissociative these days. I'm going for that billowing tailored look, myself, with skirts that are short, but in a longish sort of way. Walking down the street in one of those should elicit a deafening silence.

But no matter how hot the trends are, people in Missouri just won't get it.

Sperm costumes do nothing for the figure. And, seriously, those shoes? Apparently, it was a parade, held in conjunction with the announcement of new legislation: a formal proposal to force all men and women — even those just visiting — to always carry at least one condom. Those caught empty-pocketed could pay a fine of $180 or take a safe sex course . . . Which brings me to these questions: Why fourteen as a cutoff age, instead of twelve or eighteen? Define "carry"? Would keeping it in your purse count? Your car? Wouldn't it be just as easy to require the guys just to wear one all the time? Might make that whole public urination a thing of the past - and be yet another innovative fashion statement. Nope, I think they just rubber-stamped this one without any thought whatsoever.

They might manufacture most of our clothes and home furnishings, but for God's sake do NOT let Taiwan get into design.

The enlightening power of female genitalia: "They all looked so different." Hmm . . . not if these guys get their way: "The majority of women are thrilled with their new, more aesthetically desirable appearance after labiaplasty, and are more confident, comfortable, and sexually active." Am I the only one who finds this trend very disturbing?

Maryland protects your right to wear a thong . . . . or, not.

Via Aprille: which celeb do you resemble?

Oh, and this rather surprising result:

You Are Most Like Charlotte!

You are the ultimate romantic idealist
You've been hurt before, but that hasn't caused you to give up on love.
If anything, your resolve to fall in love is stronger than ever.
And it's this feminine optimism that men find most appealing about you.

Romantic prediction: That guy you are seeing (or crushing on)?

Could be very serious - if you play your cards right!
