This is flat out vulgar! There are minors present!There are minors present
you know you don’t want to get in treble
Don’t be sharp with me, you know this is a bassless accusation.
I was trying to think of a reply but puns are just not my forte.
We need to put this joke to rest.
You just can’t appreciate good jokes. You don’t know the score.
“yeah im a lesbian trapped inside a man’s body” the cishet male laughs as he highfives one of his dudebros. suddenly he gives off a look of pure terror and a piercing shriek as his skin is ripped apart, much to the horror of his crew. his skin falls to the floor and a woman is left standing where he once was. “FINALLY” she roars, kicking one of the dudebros in the dick before running into the sunset in search of some hella fine ladies.
On Dec. 13, 1959, the Times-Union ran an article about 24 Civil Defense sirens being set up throughout the city. They would sound at noon the last Friday of each month. This was to be sure they were in working order in case of enemy attack. I remember stopping mid-game and waiting to see if the wail was a test or the real thing.
And then there were these dog tags around our necks.
In February of 1952 the city of New York bought 2.5 million dog tags. By April of that year, just about every kid in the city from kindergarten to fourth grade had a tag with their name on it. Kids in many other cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Las Veagas and Philadelphia also got dog tags, allowing for easy identification should the unthinkable occur.
Writing in a 1951 issue of the Journal of the National Education Association, assistant superintendent William M. Lamers laid out their options:
Tattooing is considered occasionally, but generally rejected because of its associations and impermanence in the case of severe burns … Marking of clothing is more seriously regarded [but] clothing can be destroyed… and is frequently interchanged. Fingerprinting is… regarded by some as an infringement of privacy… Cards are easily worn out, stolen or destroyed.
NEW YORK CHILDREN TO GET “DOG TAGS” NEW YORK, Oct. 13, (AP)— “Dog tags” will be issued to New York City school children starting next week. Complete with steel neck chains, the tags will be be given out first to some 200,000 second and third graders. Resembling those worn by members of the armed forces, the tags will contain children’s names, addresses, birth dates, parents’ names and a code number designating each child’s school. The tag distribution, announced Thursday, is a precautionary identification measure in case of an atom bomb or other attack on the city.” - THE EVENING CAPITAL, Annapolis, Md., October 13, 1951
[A]t Bluff Park Elementary… all of the children were given dog tags for identification in case of a nuclear attack. The teachers at this time told the school children that the dog tags were needed in case any child happened to get seaparated from his or her parents during an attack. The students were told that officials would be able to identify kids by their dog tags and reunite them with their parents.
I talk about our grammar school dog tags in my class lectures when we get to the Cold War. I have a couple of distinct memories. We were asked to designate our religion, and each tag was stamped with a P, C or J for Protestant, Catholic or Jewish.
The chain was the main attraction. I remember twirling the chain on my finger. What I tell my classes today, however, is that the dog tags were part of the county’s civil defense planning, and the purpose of the tags was the same as the military’s use - that is, for ‘graves registration.’ How macabre that those tags, that were a source of delight and curiosity for us, were in fact produced for a truly grim purpose. And I assume our parents knew the reason.
I was very excited the day I was given my dog tag, I remember, a little disappointed there were no special markings for medical allergies, which made your tag more important. But we didn’t know the real purpose of the tags. How terrified were our parents and grandparents when they hung tags around our necks so officials could identify our burnt bodies if necessary!
Katherine let me wear mine a short time only. It was in bad taste, she declared, like shoes with no socks, nylon party dresses, and permanent waves and nail polish for little girls. My sister and I were allowed no jewelry except the rings we got at the dentist office, because as it was, they only lasted a day or two before breaking or losing a stone.I treasure my military style dog tag that the New York City Board of Education issued in 1953 or 1954 when I was a student in kindergarten or first grade at P.S. 11 in Woodside, Queens… The Board of Education … determined that it was necessary to issue dog tags to identify students in case of a devastating bomb attack from Cold War enemies of the United States.
Throughout my elementary school life, I experienced shelter drills and air raid drills. I don’t think I understood the ramifications, but I obediently followed the teachers’ instructions over the years. We had to practice duck and cover defenses as well as lining up in the halls away from glass that could shatter on us. These activities were just part of the school day. What terrified me were the air raid sirens. I lived about 300 feet from a fire station that operated a siren. It wasn’t possible to hide from that noise.
I can still remember watching a short animated “story” on television that I believe was on the Ed Sullivan Show. In retrospect, this doesn’t make sense, but it was a long time ago. Ed Sullivan, or the actual person involved, warned parents to send small children out of the room so they wouldn’t be frightened by what was about to be shown. I was sent out, but I still watched from a secure position out of my parents’ sight. The movie illustrated what would happen when a nuclear bomb exploded. I can still envision the scene in which sleeping people were melted in their beds.
This Stardust styled shoot is nothing short of magical! The details capture the enchantment of the book perfectly but my favorite part by far is the wonderful camera trick that turned the bride into a luminous star herself!
