Cut that out!

Was it National Abstinence Day, and no one told me?

Of course, for me, every day is Abstinence Day, so nothing new there. But I was pleased to find the page from the rather antsy folks at the Abstinence Clearinghouse. There you'll find all the materials you need to hook up with people... and not have sex with any of them.

Here's the news from today's front page:
01.18.06 First Lady Laura Bush Endorses Abstinence

Well, she would, wouldn't she?

And be sure to check out "Faces of Abstinence." No, it's not what you're thinking. It's people's profiles. My favourite:
Darren L. Washington, Gary, IN
Secondary Virgin for 7 years

See, the Secondary Virgin is the one they bring out in case the Primary Virgin is injured.

If you can get your entry up there, I will somehow get you laid.

I'm working on mine.


  1. Daniel,
    Siti here, am still in the ACT doing visa fun with my Daniel lol. Anyway came across article that interested me hugely so I thought I'd send it your way link,1518,414291,00.html
    it's about the language issues of a group of people called the Pirahã
    anyway check it out, by the way the blogs great

    Mucho Love(O)


  2. Thanks for the link, Siti.

    I've never known how much Chomsky to accept because I'm not convinced that his theories about language are in fact testable, or indeed even scientific. So it's nice to see UG under more scrutiny after all these years.

    BTW, I wish they hadn't ended the article with the word 'feces'. That was anti-climactic.

    I mean, it's okay if I do it.
