This morning, I was trying to increase my own fluency in English, something that I'm constantly working on despite having English as my native language.
I had been trying to post some nonsense in response to The Lost Nomad's "Girl Wednesday" photos and wanted to compare the model's stiff hair to "the bristles on a boar-bristle brush," a phrase that can twist your tongue into all sorts of tongue-twisting contortions.
But I didn't want to use "bristle" twice, and I began to wonder what to call those stiff . . . uh, bristles.
"Maybe 'tines'?" I mused.
So, I Googled "hairbrush tines." Up came two -- only two -- websites:
fem dom hypnosis... Female spanking male with hairbrush tines of his tongue cut out, so giggly and immature and I could her that time she was at the, isn't saving her it's just.I guess that I can be a bit obtuse, but I imagined that "fem dom hypnosis" had something to do with feminism and that I was seeing some lines of a poem, perhaps of a random, dadaist sort. I clicked and found myself caught in a "female domination" dungeon that I couldn't escape except by closing the browser. Serves me right, I suppose, for being careless, but the punishment of being trapped by dominant females in a "fem dom" dungeon must appeal to some men.
Open Forums of ExChristian.Net - Encouraging Ex-Christians... Keys and pens can be stabbed into places. So can hairbrush tines. Hairspray and perfume can be just as effective as mace and pepperspray.
I opened a new browser and Googled "hairbrush tines" again. Of course, the same two items came up. This time, I avoided the former and . . . after some hesitation ("stabbed into places"?) . . . clicked on the latter. Fortunately, it didn't concern excessive sex by "ExChristians" but self-defense advice for ex-Christian women worried about being raped. Well . . . I suppose that one could classify this as "excessive sex."
So, what did I learn? That there are only three people in the world with enough imagination to call hairbrush bristles "tines" -- a sexual pervert, an infidel, and me.
