I found these a bit annoying, actually. Because the subtext I got was "this is satiric because it's funny to think of women wanting to look at pictures of men performing sexual allure!" It's like the critique is supposed to... [more]

VikingSword's diet and relationship to food would make me want to kill myself I guess I'd just say that VikingSword, like Athene, is an outlier - though a different kind. I can't imagine starting my day with protein powder and lowfat... [more]
