    Funny you should mention that, because when I stepped outside to get coffee this morning, I sprained my cremaster muscle.

    Hey! Just like Christians can’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven without being washed in the Blood of the Lamb, Per aspera commenters can’t make dick jokes without posting their own random ten! Hop to it!

    None of the legs of my tripod are in any danger of freezing to any other. Though it should be noted that the medical bills from when I was back east are one of the main reasons I moved out here. Requisite cock and balls joke: check. Bonus Hawaii reference to make people jealous: check.

    1) Release – Pearl Jam
    2) Chicago – Hieroglyhpics
    3) She Runs Away – Duncan Shiek
    4) Turn Me On – Norah Jones
    5) Broken Box – Queens of the Stone Age
    6) Regulate – Nate Dogg & Warren G
    7) The Sun Woke the Whole State – Motion City Soundtrack
    8) Once – Pearl Jam
    9) Precious Things – Tori Amos
    10) El Scorcho – Weezer (this is my iTunes favorite song. It comes on about every 25 songs or so. Seriously.)
    Random Top 10: check

    And Steve, using a Christian simile about not going to heaven to your Hindu friend about why he can’t post. You might as well have asked him to prove he wasn’t a terrorist (though frankly I think Ananth’s possession of Jackson and Buffet would be enough to clear him in most courts).
    Sarcastic comment avoiding substantive debate: check, and that’s a day.

  6. Steve

    Substantive debate in the FRT thread? I’ll have none of it. Neither of the two of us believe in the Christian god, but we both understand the analogy — remission : blood :: dick jokes : random ten.

    When you say cold, does that mean you didn’t go to the beach today? I went to the beach today.
