The most viscerally horrible movie I've seen is "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover." I had to leave the theater and splash my face with cold water. Literally made me sick to my stomach.

Also probably better than the RCMB thread about how Connor Cook is getting screwed by the media, who have concocted this whole "Cook is a bad leader" story. He's really the best guy ever.

A lot of posts in this thread are saying "let's be real." Men like to look at attractive women in tiny outfits. It is what it is. Ok, then, let's be real. Cheerleading in its most basic form is women merely cheering as men do the work. Fortunately, it has evolved over the years, and become more athletic, more skill-based, more team-oriented. But let's be real. The vast majority of men on here aren't appreciating the skill of it. And while a few may have daughters who participate in cheer competitions and get the same satisfaction as a baseball or football player might out of being a member of an athletic team, cheering, in its most basic form, is atrractive women cheering for the men. Let's be real.
I have no problem with the poster. It's a little ridiculous, but I think it just lays out the job requirements. A womsn has a choice whether or not she wants to be a part of that.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm not angry about this and I don't want to take cheerleading away from people who enjoy it. This is just how I personally feel about it.

Don't feel sorry for me; the last thing I am is a victim.
|1 week 1 day ago||My personal feeling - and I||
My personal feeling - and I usually keep it to myself because I have friends who either cheered themselves or who have daughters who cheer - is that cheering, while obviously athletic, is belittling to women at its very core. It's essentially girls cheering on the boys as they get to go out and do the important work. (I admit that as a young girl, I had fantasies about playing football and making the big play rather than wearing a cheerleader outfit). It also gives men (and other women) the opportunity to comment on women's bodies in a socially acceptable and public way, and that shouldn't be acceptable. Even if you don't say it, you think it -- I know I have. Apologies to any cheerleaders on the board -- I don't like to cut down the efforts of other women -- but that element of cheerleading has always rubbed me the wrong way.

This happened recently, as in the past six months. The day my son got his learner's permit, I immediately took him out driving. He had been out a few times in an empty parking lot on a Sunday, but this was his first time in real driving conditions. I didn't really give this first experience a lot of thought, I just said, "Let's Go!" He was apprehensive, but went along. The streets in our neighborhood are narrow, so when another car is coming your way, you have to pull to the side, usually right near a parked car. It can be nerve-wracking. As we were driving down the street, another car came towards us. I told my son he'd have to pull close to the parked car to let the other car through. He started to pull over but I noticed he was getting awfully close to the parked car, so I told him to stop. It was like he didn't know how to use the brake properly (he didn't; this was his third time driving) and so he hit the parked car. On his first time out. I really felt horrible. I should have eased him in. He was completely shell-shocked, and said he didn't want to drive afterall. Six months and many hours behind the wheel later, he's doing great, and will get his license in June. But I take full responsibility for his driving PTSD.

I think Zingerman's has done an amazing job having a consistent brand over the past 30+ years. From what I can tell, they have expanded appropriately and in keeping with their core values, from their food to the businesses they've added to their space. They don't have outposts in other cities, which can be the downfall of a restaurant. The only knock is probably that the food isn't quite as good as it was 30 years ago, and that might be the result of making 1500 sandwiches in a day now vs. 300 back then.

I have a tie. My first car, a 1979 Z-28. White with blue stripes and a light blue vinyl interior. My first taste of freedom by car. And I felt really cool in it. I had a personalized license plate-- LLROCK (Long Live Rock) -- it was pretty freaking awesome. I almost died when I burned a hole in the console with a cigarette.
Second would be my Alfa Romeo Graduate. It was the most bare bones version of the Spider. No door locks. Vinyl top, vinyl seats, crank windows. But so fun to drive with the top down. I miss that car.
