Say It. I Dare You.

I'm watching Dan Snow's programme 'filthy cities'. He's in New York. According to the Ford historian horses 'went to the bathroom' on the streets. Animals do not use bathrooms.

I have an image of horses sitting down with a newspaper while on the toilet.

Out of curiosity why do Americans say they're going to the bathroom when they're going to the toilet in a public place?

What is the difference between saying 'going to the bathroom' and 'going to the toilet'? A toilet is IN a bathroom right? Even if we're going to the bathroom (or to the toilet) outside, neither one is really describing the actual event.
But I guess to most people they sound more dignified at a dinner party than saying "Excuse me but I'm going to go take a stinky sh1t now". : )

^^ When I was 14 I volunteered for a wildlife rescue/nature center. My #1 hyper-deluxe favorite thing was feeding the baby raccoons. Held them individually like babies and had them gnaw on cantaloupe slices, for example.

Jeez, I'm getting teary just thinking about it. I loved those little furry so-and-sos.

I see that Hooters has changed its tag line from "delightfully tacky yet unrefined" to "feed the dream". This is part of an effort to revamp their image and lure in more women. Oh and they've added more salads to their menu too.

Slow news day.

Who told Steve Harvey he was a relationship expert? His face makes me sick.
I never really gave it much thought before, but I say either "I'm going to the bathroom" or "I'm going to the restroom".

I'm not really going in there to rest, but I guess since it involves sitting down that's where that term comes from?

I come to the end of the day
and realize that I am rather strange.
I'm not one bit normal or even borderline.
Some of the things I say and do,
Remember others that I have no clue.

My mind isn't based in reality,
I have no concept of the passing of time.
One day or two does not matter
Weeks could pass and my inner clock will shatter!

Splintering silvers of ice-cold life
penetrate my skin and mind.
Frozen from deep within
Only looking out, searching for a spark of life
A warm fire of burning desire to melt
My cold, stony heart.
Kiss my blue, squivering lips. Take my breath into your own.
Breath the hot fires of soul-searching love into my inner most cavern.
Hanging upside down are the bats of doubt. Love and lonely, searching for warm, blood, salty, being quiver with life. A life slowly draining from within,
Quickly catch the lives giving flow...
Drop, by warm delicious drop
It flows does my throat, mixing with my salty, acid tears.
My heart warms for you, my eyes blaze with a glowing, scortching flame of desire.
For an eternity I walk the wretched rock call Earth.
I searched for the green of you, the yellow of hope, and the red of survivial.

One last time kiss me before I must leave -
Open the window and turn your back to me.
Do not feel the breeze that will carry me across
the chasm of time.
Do not be fearful of the warm sprays of rain mixed with blood as I dissolve into the nightmist I call home.

If you want to stay in a relationship with a complete douchebag, take Steve Harvey's advice. As one of the world's leading douchebags, he is eminently qualified to give this kind of advice. It's unfortunate that he and others suffer under the delusion that all men are this awful. It's like a penguin stubbornly insisting that no birds can actually fly and the proof is that he can't.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I didn't want to derail the pee-in-pool thread so I'm posting this rant here.

Soiling? Really!?!

Peeing is bad enough, but we've had pools here closed due to "soiling."

(soiling = delicate way of saying someone pooed in the pool)

All ladies or gents have to do is put on a Little Swimmers Depends and it'll all be alright.
It just seems very odd to me to say you're going to the bathroom when you're in a shopping centre and there are no bathrooms. I just think of a bathroom having a bath in it. That's all.

Over here everyone I know says they're going for a pee, going to the toilet, going to the ladies/gents when they're going to use public facilities. Never going to the bathroom when they're just talking about a toilet. It's just one of those strange differences I'd often wondered about.

And a horse going to the bathroom is hilarious.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Fifi your story made me think of peewee herman in the biker bar, making friends and dancing on the bar. Tequila!

On the topic of Mr Ed and restrooms, I have often heard (and even occasionally said around very close friends) "I have to piss like a Russian race horse." Though I have no idea how Russian race horses pee. I'm suspecting it's fiercely.

OH MY GOSH.

The screaming match somehow turned into a screaming match about why gay marriage shouldn't be legal.

This is coming from a woman who claims she's SO for the "sanctity of marriage" and just wants to protect it...yet she's with a guy with three ex-wives and has been living with him for years without being married.

All I kept saying was that I don't see how it effects ANYBODY's life if gay people get married, and that I have WAY too many gay people in my life that I love and how could I EVER look them in the eye and say, "I love you, but you don't deserve the same rights as me?"

She kept screaming, "MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN! MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN! YOU'RE ALLOWED TO YOUR OPINION AND I'M ALLOWED TO MINE! WHY SHOULD THEY BE ALLOWED TO GET MARRIED WHEN MY BOYFRIEND AND I CAN'T EVEN USE EACH OTHER'S HEALTH INSURANCE?"

(WHAT SENSE DOES THAT MAKE????????? IF YOU TWO WANTED TO GET MARRIED YOU COULD. NOBODY IS STOPPING YOU.)

She said the world and the family unit is just going to hell, and it's all because gays are allowed to get married now.

She said, "LOOK MARRIAGE UP IN THE DICTIONARY! IT SAYS IT'S BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN!"

I read the definition from the Dictionary iPhone app to her. None said anything about a man and a woman.

She rolled her eyes and said, "What did you get that from, a gay dictionary?"

She called me a "pinko liberal". (HUH? I don't even know what that MEANS. I am SO not a political person. I just think everybody should do what makes them happy and we all deserve equal rights.)

She kept saying she's allowed to her opinion, but she couldn't explain her opinion or why she wants to deny people rights.

I asked her if she didn't think it was okay that my friend finally legally married his partner of TEN YEARS recently. TEN YEARS! She said, "FINE, but they shouldn't be allowed to call it MARRIAGE. MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN."

I seriously almost went ballistic. I am BOILING right now.

I don't get this mentality AT ALL. Like I said, she's living with a guy with several divorces behind him. "In sin", as they might say, but she's fine judging other people and telling them what they don't deserve.

How did I come from her?

Her daughter has been given an opportunity, based on excellent grades, to study abroad next summer. She kept saying, "It was France and Europe. Noooo... France, Paris and Europe. (Insert my other co worker and I trying to explain Paris is in France, the countries of ... Make up Europe) No, that wasn't it. It was England, Paris, France and Europe".

Hello, to the British cigarettes are '***s', not to mention 'bangers and mash', .... there are dozens of terms that don't necessarily make sense to others.
