The best, least expensive southern BBQ rib joint in Portland ("from the rooter to the tooter") got busted this winter after a years-long FBI investigation proved that the guy was running a $300,000/month (MONTH!) coke operation out of the back of the restaurant for the last 20-odd years.

Explains why the food was so cheap and the place was always filled with guys that looked like they just got out of the joint. One time I asked for a menu and the owner had to fire up the photocopier (which was in the dining area) and print me one. DAMN good food though. ...strangely addictive...

Darshan is ultimately difficult to define since it is an event in
consciousness—an interaction in presence which focuses and calls out the consciousness.

Unverified personal gnosis (often abbreviated UPG) is the
phenomenological concept that an individual's spiritual insights (or gnosis)
may be valid for them without being generalizable to the experience of
others.

SPG (Shared Personal Gnosis) - indicating a mystical vision shared by a
number of unrelated people, preferably, one arrived at independently of
one another.

CG (Confirmed Gnosis) - indicating that substantiating evidence for an
incidence of UPG or SPG has later been found in the lore. This is also
sometimes referred to as CPG (Confirmed Personal Gnosis).

The chi distribution has one parameter: k which specifies the number of degrees of freedom (i.e. the number of Xi).

If what you're saying is that you're worried about you employer seeing what you're looking at. I feel your concern. I believe though I could at least explain to my boss that I wasn't looking for porn, and that some ass had posted some real graphic shit that normally doesn't show up around here and I had no idea it was going to be there.

people do tend to look over my shoulder a bit...
the real bosses act like they get the live feed anyway

side-note, though... if you're going for staying power with you posts,
you might dance the edge of explicit

otherwise the admins are sure to raze, and all for naught

i post pics nearly exclusively from edu sites, as their images are less likely to lose their fervor
