Hey, what time zone is used to add the date-stamp to the forum posts GMT?
Can we get it re-set?

I would suggest Northridge, California time
which is also a fair average of the home timezones of our site's founders:
Winnipeg-LongBeach-Maui
(and is conveniently MY time zone)

It's a small issue, but can be confusing if you've ever been trying to sort out the history of multiple threads.

I'm posting this at 4:50 PM Pacific Time (California), February 15

but the forum has dated it as 12:50AM "today"
By "today" I believe it means Thursday Feb. 16 which would be correct for London, Dublin, Casablanca, Lisbonand Reykjavic.
Sounds kind of exotic, but not mucho useful for us North Americans and Canadians.

As an alternative, might just switch the "today" and "yesterday" notations to plain month/date, which would at least be more clear.

Each user sets their own time zone in the user control panel. Yours has not been set and has defaulted to GMT.

FYI - the forum averages the US Naval Observatory and Bureau of Standards atomic clocks to get a reasonable time estimate. :)

Can't seem to find that scowl emoticon. Instead I'll just have to growl menacingly:

Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!

To John: averaging two atomic clocks is completely unacceptable. How am I supposed to reconcile the potential loss of a nano second. I might miss one of Giskard's posts.

He operates in two time zones at once. That's how some of his posts end up being deleted before they're even posted. Then the rest of us are like, "Is there something missing here...?" :confused:

At first, I thought it might be me, but a little research reveals it's not--by a longshot! Thankfully I'm still a JBL slut even if I can't be chief forum whore.

Or, they could just give you a "grace period' while they go through all the old posts and edit them to your liking!! Fwiw, it's apparent nobody goes through all the oldest stuff anyways! :p I'm guilty. If I do a search for something and 44 pages come up- I'm gonna look at the first 15 maybe, and if what I'm looking for isn't there- I post a new thread. It's wrong, I know. I'm getting better at reviving the old threads. My point is- I think if you keep posting like a whore- it'll all be buried too deep for anyone to find!

'bastages' Johnny Dangerously? F-ing CLASSIC!

Dome.. understand the diffference between a Slut and a Whore....

1. A Whore does it because they have to ( for money, drugs etc)...

2. a Slut does it because they ENJOY IT and can't get enough and will do it anywhere, anytime with anyone ( speakers in our case)......

[ and yes, I guess you could be a slut and a whore at the same time...slore???]

I guess we need different words for different levels of Sluthood..... ( like the eskimos have all those words for snow) need a new thread here?

:hmm:

Well, I'll have to give it some thought....

However off the top of my head......in our case here...I'd say a Skank is a person who Posts like a Whore....Enjoys it like a Slut and then feels somehow "Dirty" about the whole thing and then wants to delete all their posts, as if nothing has happened....

Back to skanks-

A skank is a filthy person, synonymous with dirtball. You could say "skanky whore", "skanky slut", or just plain ol' "skank." You could use the word as an adjective/adverb in the following ways: "...dude, your shirt smells skanky." "My ass is skanky- I need a shower" "Don't invite her over to skank up the place!!"

Even at the collegiate level- you could use the word in the following ways: "...dude, your shirt smells skanky." "My ass is skanky- I need a shower" "Don't invite her over to skank up the place!!"

Yes, you did..... :D

Your using "Skank" more as an adjective..where as we were talking about pronouns or nouns.... big difference to ask

Where does skank fit in to the whole whore/slut thing?
This asking more like...WHAT a skank is, particularly when also addressing the Whore/slut issue....

rather than
How it is normally used...


I tried to stay away from the usual "Mr. Fithy McNasty" thing .....

oh hell who gives a darn...I still like my description of Skank......

Look up skank (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/skank) in Wiktionary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiktionary), the free dictionary

Skank or skanky is a slang (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slang) term, and is an adjective or noun referring to one who is undesirable as a result of unacceptable behavior. Most often this behavior relates to drug use, sexual practices, and/or personal hygiene and style. Originally associated with a bad smell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smell) and/or scummy or dirty surface, it has come to refer to someone who is either or both physically repugnant for their filth and morally or socially repugnant for their behavior and demeanor, most often sexually. Prostitutes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitute) are often associated with the term though in reference to a usually non-whoring person. It is pejorative (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pejorative). "Skanking" originally referred to menstruation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menstruation), but today it is usually used to refer to a dance where the dancer jumps in a rhythm similar to skipping and swings one hand out to their side and then back in and across their body while kicking the opposite leg out- then doing the same with the other arm and leg and repeating.

Recent usage of the term in the United States (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) has been to describe a particular kind of female behavior, characterized by wanton selfishness, repeated self-detrimental behavior, flirting and sexual promiscuity.

In the United Kingdom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom), the term has also been used to describe someone who is tight with their money. To be skanked or to skank someone is used as a verb to be ripped off or to rip someone off. Often a term expressed in relation to drugs.

you're taking this MUCH TOO SERIOUSLY, of course we all know what "skank" means ( that's what I meant by Fithy McNasty)


For example, when I spent 3 weeks in the Baja desert studing with an Indian Shaman - YES..MY ass was shanky ( and my pits, feet and everything else).....

I was just answering Giskard the funnest way I knew how......

LOL. I appreciate the concern '59, but I take FEW things too seriously! I'm not at ALL tweaked. This is "text effect". I just saw the definition online and thought that it was worth posting cause it's funny. Did you read it? Skank is a 'dance', too? :p
