So recently i lost a bet, originally made a bet with a friend of mine in the socialist youth league about the result of the next election, that bet was heavily in my favor, our mutual friend heard about it and she thought the bet was unfair so she made me another one, which i took confidently thinking I'd win both bets, but end up losing the second bet, the winner of the bet got full control over deciding how the loser styled their hair next, meaning if i win the original bet I'm going to get revenge even though the second bet wasn't really his fault.

But as someone who's used to being the most average looking nerd it's quite a big leap out of my comfort zone.

Rant over here's some pics:

I thought you was exploring places as part of your journey, but it looks like you went as far as exploring a barber shop. I'll let you in on what I learned before - after my near fatal car wreck in 1986 when I was an infant, it didn't take me long to learn that beauty doesn't last forever. It can leave a permanent scar on your face like it did mine.

Sorry to disappoint but I'm working on getting our version of the GED, before i go adventuring. I understand what you are saying the post wasn't meant as some gloating about the cut more just an excuse to talk about going out of my comfort zone on a forum with a lot of people that i admire exactly for that trait of being able to go do things that seem way out there. My fault though for being misleading with having journey in the title, am sorry about that

Good on you for not backing out. Lucky you don't look deranged now.

By all indications, it's a fluid characterization...

And no I'm not being sarcastic either - it's a fair question

I'm hoping @Arnlaugur can shed some light!

I was grooving on the fact there's a socialist youth league in Iceland - I can't imagine any such thing in this hemisphere

I hated AC/DC as a teenager but I've seen the light & must agree: it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll

What's a socialist?

NOTE: I'm not being sarcastic.
In simplified terms it means i believe the means of production should be in the hands of the worker everything other than that just depends on the flavor of socialism, I for example am a libertarian socialist which mixes the anarchist critique of the state with socialism

I must add, I am also wearing an AC/DC shirt right now. Not a big fan of the band it's just a comfortable shirt, and I like the logo and it's reference to electricity, or was it gender bending?
"Malcolm and Angus Young developed the idea for the band's name after their sister, Margaret Young, saw the initials "AC/DC" on a sewing machine. "AC/DC" is an abbreviation meaning"alternating current/direct current" electricity."

"The last time I lost a bet, I woke up in jail. "

Zinger of a line, I laughed.

Yeah, I'm familiar with such.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This dumpster was amazing;I'd often found throwaways of the big liter bottles they ship syrup with codiene to pharmacies in. Because of the consistency of it there would always be an ounce or two in the bottle they didnt get out. I'd get 2 or 3, spatula scrape out the good, make some szrrrp, put on DJ screw and get faded. :)
