Consumer goods that make your life better
    #2176679 - 12/14/03 01:54 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

There are a few things kicking around my place that truly make my life better and more enjoyable:

HeadPhones : a kick ass pair of Sony head phones (150$), make music sooo much more enjoyable, and are a great meditation device.

SLR Camera: the old school Pentax, I can take awesome pictures of my girlfriend, or a puddle with this badboy, and its super fun to use.

Paper and Pen: I got a dope set of pencils and pens and I like to rock out on them HARD.

Computer and internet: this is the important one, gives me the abilty to access the information/news that I want, the shackles of broadcast television have been broken and a new day is dawning.

sweet, thank you consumerism!!

My laptop. I can email docs back and forth to people I work with, I can do research online, I can see people using a webcam and they can see me, fax over the internet, etc. This is my most favorite piece of technology. Internet, computers.

All goods you choose to consume make your life better, or you wouldn't consume them. At least in the short run.

Weed & Shrooms. They're goods, and are consumed.

I must admit that cd's and my Fostex T20 headphones make life more enjoyable, although it would be even cooler if I could experience live music far more often. I'd trade my headphones and cd's for that any day. Also, my instruments, pens, journals, paints and sketch book are awesome items I prefer to live with.

TV, Computer, Internet, all music-related goods, and aesthetically pleasing artistic objects that add nice tones and shades of colors and vibes to my life. =)

Oh god, i forgot toilet paper. I LOVE that stuff. its one of the few items I'd really rather not do without, and I have used leaves while camping. They do the trick to a degree but really aren't absorbant like that glorious 2 ply wonder.

Yeah... but hookers can't afford birth control AND their crack habit.

*warning: feminist rant to follow*

This is SUCH a male thing to say :smirk: I'm not severely offended or anything, but it's always easier to let the woman deal with migranes, mood swings, and potentially seriously fucked up reproductive system than it is to slip on a thin piece of latex isn't it? The pill fucked me up when I tried it, and it fucks up a lot of women, but we do it because men don't like condoms and no one will market a male birth control pill. I know a woman who had to get a hysterectomy because of the pill. It's bad stuff.

I'm not trying to attack you or anything, its just a point I needed to make. I'm personally as guilty as anyone, I started taking it even though I swore I never would because my boyfriend didn't like condoms the one time he bothered to try them.

hey, my girl would say the same thing as me.
some people are severely allergic to latex (especially in 'tender' areas..), and like the feeling of skin
I never asked her to take the pill, she did it on her own accord. Says condoms suck, she'll deal with the side effects, it's worth it. or something along those lines. oh yeah and she's a hardcore feminist too.

I'm female.  I hate condoms, too.  But not going to tell you how many kids I have.  :grin:

I don't know how unhealthy it is, I'm not the one taking it.
so tell me then, what alternative is there, besides children?
