Break the mirror

senilenoun asked: Hey Chuck- what's your fascination with public restrooms? There's quite a few scenes in your books that take place in public restrooms. My favorite is Madison's experience with the glory hole. Do you have any crazy experiences yourself?

Bathrooms are great because all the furniture is fixed.  Very little description is needed, and I can launch right into action.  Brandy Alexander overdoses in the bathroom — like Judy Garland and Jim Morrison.  The ‘Fight Club’ police chief is almost castrated in a bathroom.  Tender Branson dodges a very penis-like gun in a toilet stall.  The ‘Pygmy’ rape scene.  Bathrooms are places of utility and profane expression. 

What Happens in the Bathroom Stays in the Bathroom.  A place of secret weeping and masturbation.  A place where we don our masks.

People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

Houston, Texas (KPRC/CNN) — Pictures posted on Twitter earlier this week show something floating through the skies over the Houston area.

In one, a circular “thing” appears to hover. In another, it appears in front of impressive clouds. In yet another, the circle appears to stand on its side with an impressive light show.

You can find a lot of things flying through the halls of the Houston Museum of Natural Science, but a real answer to just what appears in these Twitter pictures is a mystery.

"I think the trick in UFO’s is figuring out what else they could be," says Dr. Carolyn Sumners, vice president for Astronomy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. "It’s easy to say that could be the aliens."

Dr. Sumners investigates and is writing a show about UFO’s.

"If it’s a real object and it looks like it is — the more people who see it in different directions, the more likely we are to figure out where it is, what it is and see if we can explain it," she explains.

However, Sumner says all the bad weather the area had on Monday night could have something to do with everything people captured on their phones.

"All the way back to recorded history, there are going to be things we can’t explain. That’s what makes it exciting," Sumner says.

Listen, you fuckers, you screwheads. Here is a man who would not take it anymore. A man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit. Here is a man who stood up.

Marineland august 16, 2014: the water was disgusting in all the tanks. There was a heavy smell of chlorine in Kiska’s tank, the stadium tank and inside the aquarium. The seals all had their eyes tightly closed. Also Kiska’s tank was emanating a smell of fecal matter near the one side where the filter and vent was. The deers were heartbreaking. Apparently scraping their antlers is normal but usually done on trees. There are no trees in their area. Blood was getting every where and no one cared. Parents were letting their small children walk right through the fresh blood and touch the deer while he was scraping. It may be natural but it can’t be sanitary. Kiska has given up. You can see into her eyes. Echo the dolphin had take marks all over her. And one dolphin looked spotty. But can’t be sure. Couldn’t get close enough. No Smooshi in the show. We had Apollo instead. So many Belugas. There were 20 in one tank at Arctic Cove. The other side had mothers and babies. Plus one looked pregnant. There were about 4 babies. One looked about a week old.

This place is repulsive and so is anybody who supports it.

This should spark revolution in the hearts and minds of all people who care.
