Were you in Portland when Jantzen beach was an amusement park, or the I-5 bridge took tokens?



No, but my father in law was a toll collector at the I-5 bridge.

So at Nathan's intersection, one corner has a Walgreens and one has a casino. Whats on the other corners?

I don't particularly mind Nathan as she's harmless. She's not going out and calling people names, stirring the pot, nor being involved in skulduggery in general. The community here should stop niggling Nathan.

One of the reasons I think Nathan is a
female is she puts an emoticon of
some type at the end of 90+% of
her posts. Men rarely do that, but
there are tons of women who do
it constantly.

I'm on a keto forum that's 80%
women and it's an emoticon orgy
there. Women hate being misunderstood,
so they feel they have to clarify what
they say with an emoticon to
back them up. Men don't care that
much if we're misunderstood, so we
don't bother.

Think about it. Nathan takes the time
to think about and type an emoticon.
Do you know any men that consistently
do that 90% of the time? I don't.

Careful man! There's a beverage here! Being good is no fun. I want to make ignorant jokes too! :-| The Cleveland Browns look for another victory to build on their impressive two-game winning streak...Drug dealers got my boy, Jimmy! The story will continue in a moment. If the deal is too good, there is something wrong. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. Oh! through the wilderness You and I we're walking Through the emptiness Oh! my heart is a mess Is it the only defense Against the wilderness They tried to kill us, Jimmy. They did.

Don't tell anyone my secret, but it isn't as beneficial as putting a toy troll on top of the machine. Here is my favorite.



I went to Bingo with my wife at Sunset Station. Some lady had about a dozen of those things. She had one parked on top of a coverall card that needed one number. Somebody else hit it after she missed about 5x. She took the doll afterward and smacked it down on the table and cut the head off with a knife.

It's not a sure bet, but it's a better probability.

To explore the growing role emojis play in our lives, artsy emoji distribution and monetization platform MojiLaLa ran a "State of Emoji National Survey" that asked 1,000 Americans about their emoji preferences.

Women prefer a fingers snapping emoji, men just want a beer can

When women were asked which emojis they wish existed, the most popular answer was fingers snapping (14%), followed by a box of donuts (12%). Meanwhile, the most in-demand emoji among men is a beer can (15%), followed by a fart (11%).

Americans don't like it when Government official use emojis

When asked who shouldn't use emojis, 29% of Americans responded "government officials." Other people who shouldn't use emojis include "my boss" (14% of Americans expressed this opinion), followed by "senior citizens" (10%), "my parents" (10%), and "anyone over 30" (5%).

Women are 16% more likely to use them compared to men

Emojis are significantly more popular among women than men. 91% of women say they use emojis, compared to 75% of men.

Millennials rule the roost with emojis

86% of Americans say they use emojis on a regular basis. That figure jumps to 92% among millennials (ages 18-34) and falls to 77% among non-millennials (ages 35 and up). Emojis are least popular among baby boomers (ages 54 and up) (62%)-although, notably, that is still a majority.

Just as a contrast, I was on a literature/book site in the early days of the net where women were probably 90% of the posters and not only were emoticons not used, they were a banning offense.

I have never known a man who needs as much approval as Nathan seems to need.

Didn't Nathan say she was 4' 10" ?

That's fairly short, from my understanding at that height, one might receive official little person status.
