slemslempike: (doctor who)
Victoria demands both supper and clothes for Miss Tyler: "I'm tired of nakedness." (Yeah, and 250 years later you still need a prescription for Plan B, you old bitch.)

So Jacob (Televisionwithoutpity recapper), in addition to misunderstanding at least half of the cultural references in Doctor Who and being too much of a fool to ask about them, thinks that Queen Victoria is to blame for the state of reproductive freedom in the United States? An entirely separate country both then and now? Although he's probably not aware of it, in Britain we don't need a prescription for emergency contraception anymore. And even when we did I don't think that there were many people refusing to sell it. But that aside, what? He also brings up the whole Victorians covering furniture legs for modesty and is generally rather dire. Last series I read the recaps because they were hilariously awful, and now he has sucked out the hilarity. Now I read because I like a nice bit of controlled hatred in my life.

Um?

Um, in the third picture down, is the girl masturbating? That aside, or even included, I do like the drawings she posts.

I swear, this was in an entirely essay-related google (although the lotrips mpreg isn't really, unless you count it as research for having fun with gender, which I just might, although I probably won't go as far as to reference it in my bibliography): Wacky Wet World. Surprisingly, entirely worksafe. My two favourite categories are "poncho pals" and "wet jeans boys".

3625, which feels like the end is in sight, much sooner than I woruld have thought possible.

ETA: Gallery of Grange Hill wet clothes stills! This has become rather less work related.

I am having way too much fun on this. I love how the patterns change, and the unexpected difference. So did you know that Eileen and Aileen, both popular names in the 1990s that dwindled, appear to be experiencing a brief resurgance? That Mary was a top 1000 boys' name? That the name Victoria was more popular in the 1990s than it was in the 1900s?

You know who else would have loved this? Joey Bettany (Josephine most popular 1910s, apparently there's a rise in 2003). Malvina was the 862nd most popular name for girls in the 1900s. Oh, and Josette was on the list in the 1960s and 1970s! My (correct!) spelling of my name is less popular that the Other way of spelling it.

What could someone do to a horse to sabotage it without being obvious?
Sugar in the tank?

quickies, make out session etc in old english?
(this is one of the ones where the thread is mostly rebuffing suggestions “well, I didn’t mean Old English, I meant old English. Obviously.”

A 'home' prostitute? *AND* A place with low mountains, wide valleys and big waterfalls?
Holy juxtaposition!

I really wish that all these questions were for one story. That would make my year.

(Um, "don't"?)

Enforce their chastity!

What's the best sports equipment to bash a shadow with?
(MC is in an English boarding school and needs to beat shadows up with plausible things)

How does a person clean an ukulele?
(...how does one?)

How much time to make a zombie army? - Medieval death rates
(possibly my new favourite. Far fetched, yet meticulously researched)

How to humanely kill a baby?
(full of people saying "no! change the story", and one suggestion of "eat it!")


The fruit thread is puching for coconuts, with wild card additions of potatoes, butternut squash and, yes, a pineapple.

My new favourite nano forum thread is

"What fruit would be the easiest to break someone's nose with?"

I'm not doing nano, but I am enjoying reading the threads. "Help! I'm writing a novel set in Russia (where I've never been) at the turn of the tenth century (which I know nothing about)! Do my research for me."
