IamA Top Earning Legal Hooker Ay My Brothel (Thanks to Reddit!) AMA! by BovineOpine in IAmA

[–]BovineOpine[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's rare, but with every guest that I have I am open to this possibility. I am my full self with everyone, so that if I meet one of my people I'll know quickly. I'm not everyone's cup of tea, but when I meet someone cool it's much more enjoyable.

When you experience chemistry / bonding with a customer you have to be ethical about it. You both have to stay within the reality of the situation, and if one starts exploiting the other then it's time to end it. I take the time to discuss boundaries, and I take other measures to make sure things don't veer off into weird waters.

My goal is to have a team of regulars who are all "my people". That way I can have a consistent income, so that when I work it will feel sincere, and most importantly it will feel healthy

Norman, Oklahoma. 1978. A girl came up on the stage in overalls. Dropped her pants to her ankles. Turned around. Put a joint up her butt. And blew three smoke rings. We couldn't finish the show because we couldn't stop laugh. We tried 3 or 4 times to continue. Even took a break and we couldn't stop laughing.

I wouldn't know, drugs aren't my kind of thing. You do you, but I'll pass.

Thanks for doing this, George. It's great to have a chance to interact with such an iconic figure in music. I'm a huge fan of your work and had the privilege of seeing you and the gang in Melbourne, Australia last year.

  1. Why did you decide to revive the Parliament name for this new album? (the single sounds great btw, very excited to hear the album)

  2. Can you tell us more about the conception of Funkadelic's second album? How much of it was conceived of and recorded under the influence of LSD?

  3. Which artists have you enjoyed collaborating with the most and who would you like to work with in the future?

  4. When was the last time you took acid and how do you think it helped to shape and influence your music?

  5. Lastly, which planet is the Mothership heading to next and how can I get a ticket?

Peace and love, stay funky!

Dooloop is that looping of the concept around and around jumping in and out of water. You can't swim but you do it again over and over again. Sir Nose don't have no sense in his brain. Its snot logical. The membrains in your nose don't have any sense. So he keeps jumping in the water not realizing that he can't swim til he's in there.

  1. Because the last album was Funkadelic "First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate". It's Parliament's turn. The new album is "Medicaid Fraud Dog" featuring the PFunk horns Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Greg Thomas and Benny Cowan. The next album will be P-Funk Allstars.

  2. You got that right. All of that album Free Your Mind was recorded under the influence, over the influence, and between the influence of LSD and trendy chemical substances.

  3. I always enjoyed working with everyone. I'd like to work with Cardi B. She's got the funk. And the new Jay Z album is the motherfucker. I like the whole concept. I might write off that shit.

  4. Oh shit. 71 probably. It wasn't Acid after '69. It went commercial.

  5. We're going back to the Dog Star, the planet series, to pick up the Dogun and Nomos and Bouvier

He was one of my neighbors in outer space. Him and Jimi Hendrix. They lived in some cosmic projects not far from me.

[AMA Request] Someone who made an impulse decision during the 30 minutes between the nuclear warning in Hawaii and the cancelation message and now regrets it by c_h_e_1_s in IAmA

[–]8bitmorals 6636 points6637 points  (0 children)

I live in Maui, got woken up by the alert, my wife was in disbelief, so was I, called out for my five year old, he was playing with his Lego and watching TV, told me he only knew how to make cereal with milk, I came into the room where my wife was playing with our one year old, we didn't speak, I kissed her forehead and gave my 1 year old a kiss, told my wife I was going to teach our five year old to make waffles, took out blueberries, chocolate chips, and whipped cream.

During this whole time I was in disbelief, kinda in cruise control, I was casually googling, came to Reddit /r/Hawaii. There was no real confirmation.

Started to rationalize and accept the fact that if it did happen I only wish it was painless for my family and me, I regretted not talking to my parents. I felt at peace knowing I was happy , there was nothing I could do.

"Sorry Jimmy, but I don't think you have the survival skills to last in the post-Apocalyptic world that surely comes after this. I may not either, but I should have significantly better odds. Best if I take the hiding place now, then attempt to make another little Jimmy once I've gained a satisfactory position in a post-apocalyptic biker gang."

IamA former prison inmate currently struggling to stay clean AMA! by valuum in IAmA

[–]tking191919 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Level 1’s, at least where I’m from, are usually two things: 1) sentences 3 1/2 years and under (although they certainly can be longer), and 2) non violent offenders. I’m sure rape and violence do occur on occasion, but they are rare. I mean, youll certainly see fist fights and heated verbal exchanges amongst inmates.. but for the most part, everyone has their release in sight and no one wants to be sent to a more hardcore prison. But at the same time, this is prison. If you mouth off or act like a jackass, you will get your ass beat. Regardless of whether or not people are worried about getting punished.. pride will consistently overcome that. You insult me, I’ll break your fuckin jaw. That kinda thing. However, if you are generally respectful and don’t show obvious weakness (aka make yourself a target), you’ll be fine. Very very small chance that actual violence (including rape) will happen to you. You might see a guy jerkin off. And the first time you have to publicly take a shit in front of your cell is always fun.. I, like OP, was also caught off guard by how prevalent drug use is. The very first night a guy in my cell took out a meth pipe and took just a couple hits. In fact the first thing everyone asked me when I got to my cell was if I brought any drugs. But to answer your questions, you absolutely can avoid being messed with if you’re respectful and don’t put yourself in that position. The only realistic way you’re going to get hurt is if you have debts or if you mouth off - especially in your own cell. Now if you’re in a more serious prison, one with violent offenders and lifers.. that’s a whole different deal.

Edit: to add: honestly you’ll legitimately even make friends. Once you learn the scope of things and relax, you will see that for the most part no one will fuck with you if you don’t fuck with them. Once that happens you’ll also see a bunch of chill guys who just fucked up like you did. Sure, there will be assholes and some dudes who are just... off.. but just try your best to ignore them. If someone does belittle you, you absolutely need to stand up for yourself. Honestly, even if you don’t, you still probably won’t get physically hurt. But you will be labeled a bitch and that will make your entire experience that much more miserable. You will become a target. Guys will hound you for things like your newer boots or clothing items.. for you to buy them things.. or just to fuck with you in general to pass the time. But on the flip side don’t overcompensate because guys will pick up on that too. If you’re scared, stand up for yourself but don’t try to act like a tough guy that everyone can see through. Because guys will notice and test you. Eventually you will do something stupid to try and remain in charge, and that’s when you’ll get your ass beat. Don’t try to be the top dog, just maintain your ground. Last tip is don’t ask questions if it’s something you can learn from just observation. Taking a shit for example. You will see guys towel themselves off beforehand and how they use the toilet paper. Watch that shit and just do the exact same thing. The less you look like a newbie bitch the better. But at the end of the day, while it may be all scary at first.. that will all fade. Boredom is your true enemy.
