Polyamory

different from Polygamy in that it involves multiple relationships which may or may not include a married couple, while Polygamy is multiple marriages

also different from Swingers who hook up to share sex partners but not to share relationships, though some do

I also know of people who went down this road and had it blow up in their faces, which included a divorce by a couple involved and a complete splitting of the entire group

June 6, 1987

I was married at 6 p.m. that evening and ripped as hell by 10p. You know how pictures, the cake and all the bullshit get in the way.

Easy date to remember and all with it being D Day.

I've always enjoyed reading Stephen King books ... I have always been generally disappointed in the movie versions ... and the absolute worst translation of book to film I thought was The Shining ... and it pained me because I am a huge Jack Nicholson fan

apparently, Stephen King himself didn't think much of Stanley Kubrick's movie version either :
It’s no secret that Stephen King dislikes Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of his 1977 novel, “The Shining,” but now that King is publishing a sequel, “Doctor Sleep,” he’s being asked once again to explain why. “I felt that it was very cold, very, ‘We’re looking at these people, but they’re like ants in an anthill, aren’t they doing interesting things, these little insects,’” is what King said recently when a BBC interviewer asked him about the film. He also described Kubrick’s characterization of Wendy Torrance, played by Shelley Duvall, as “one of the most misogynistic characters ever put on film. She’s basically just there to scream and be stupid. And that’s not the woman I wrote about.”

Kin's sequel Doctor Sleep is available in hardcover for $18.00

What was your role in all that? Just curious ... and by that, I mean "interested to hear", but not "curious" in a sexual experimentation way.... lol.

my role was interested observer

I think it is hard enough to keep 1 relationship on a happy even keel ... lots of juggling required for more than 1 I would think

The Car for the Russian Zombiepocalypse: Maximum Maxima

If I had to fight off hordes of zombies, I’d want a good car that could quickly escape, and could also keep me out of harm’s way from the biters. And while the forecast has yet to be cloudy with a chance of walkers, it’s still never too early to prepare for our eventual demise at the hands of these mutants. These guys in Russia seem to have a good head start.

Image

This insane vehicle apparently started out as a Nissan Maxima, but with a little nip here and tuck there in some 3D modeling software – and a whole lot of metal bending and welding, it sure doesn’t look like a Nissan anymore. Actually, if you stand back and squint really hard, it looks kind of like a massive VW Beetle.

interesting design ... wonder if this will end up in a future movie

On this day in 1912 - Oreo sandwich cookies are introduced to the world by the National Biscuit Company.

And from that has sprung many varieties and flavors of Oreos :

Image


and in case you didn't know, March 6th is National Oreo Day
First created in 1912, Oreo cookies have entered their 102nd year of taste bud domination. The snacks have greatly evolved from their humble beginnings. Initially just a pair of chocolate cookies with cream filling between them, the cookies now come in a variety of options -- including Double Stuf and wafer versions. With billions of cookies sold since their introduction, Oreos remain the top-selling packaged cookie in America.

In honor of National Oreo Day on March 6, we've gathered 15 interesting facts about the tasty cookies.

1. Oreo cookies were first created in a New York City bakery and sold in a tin for 30 cents per pound.

2. It remains a mystery exactly why the cookies are named Oreos.

3. They were created with British customers in mind.

4. They were initially named “Oreo Biscuits.” But the name changed to the “Oreo Crème Sandwich” in the 1940s and to the “Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie” in the 1970s.

5. The original Oreo recipe included pork fat for the creamy center.

6. Oreos are the world’s best-selling cookie.

7. They can be found in more than 100 countries.

8. It takes a total of 59 minutes to make an Oreo.

9. When they first debuted, there was also a lemon meringue flavor of Oreos.

10. In China, you can purchase green tea ice cream flavored Oreos.

11. Women rather than men are more likely to pull their Oreos apart before eating them.

12. Oreos became Kosher in December 1997.

13. If all the Oreos ever manufactured were stacked, they could reach the moon and back more than five times.

14. Lemon meringue Oreos were discontinued in the 1920s.

15. More than 450 billion Oreo cookies have been sold worldwide since their debut.

might it be something as simple as how he loads up at the end of a race day?

if you want french fries with an additional prize, you should check out Sonic :
Marijuana found in Sonic french fries

Published: June 29, 2014 12:35 PM
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FREDERICK, Md. - A Frederick, Maryland, woman says she was served a bag of marijuana with her fast-food order at a Sonic drive-in.

The Frederick News-Post reported Friday that Carla McFarland says she found the little plastic baggie in a container along with the French fries she bought Wednesday in Frederick.

McFarland says she complained to a manager and called police. She says a manager later told her an employee had been fired after saying the bag must have slipped from her apron.
