  • MrBiscuits

    Yes… I like this page… this is a GOOD page… one of the better internet pages I think…
    Thank you internet!

    • Lauren Gentile

      And thank YOU Mr. Biscuits for being such a sweetheart! πŸ™‚

  • Drew

    How did you know they were turd-flavored? ; )

    Fellow south Floridian here (PB county.) I lived in New England for a few years, those are some bitter winters, so I feel your pain. Why not move back? I did and today there wasn't a cloud in the sky. (Didn't mean to rub it in, well maybe a little.) Stay toasty!

  • Jon

    Lauren, you're very beautiful and props for that, but I know what's important, so all I have to say is…

    WE ARE!!!

  • Jordan

    Wow…didn't know women this hot were into Civil War history. There certainly weren't any in my class in college, it was mostly dudes. Anyway, these pics are gorgeous and she seems like a great girl.

  • [clevernamehere]

    Hey Lauren, Civil War buff?

    Company Aytch, FTW! Best I've seen. Got any other suggestions?

    Nice pics too, BTW. You are certainly a fortunate girl.

  • PrinceWill

    My definition of dream girl: looks like her, quotes Princess Bride in her description of herself, loves the civil war, and has the end all be all of smiles. check, check, check, annnd check. I love the Chive

    Now all she has to do is get her angelic ass to Dallas and we can start tracking Sherman's march through the south.

  • Ichibankakoi

    O.o ….. WHAT…. it is no joke girls like you that give all us guys in the military stomach pains from missing home so much. Thank you for being down to earth!! Chive on from Japan!

  • Ass Grease

    Somebody – somewhere – is tired of her shit.

    • Lauren Gentile

      I sure hope not! My cat may qualify though.

  • Nasharran

    Alas… a woman of great brains and beauty, but no where near where I live.
    You know, Lauren, you could live in the icebox of ND and be the sunshine to keep me warm.
    besides, I play Halo way better than your bf.

  • MrBiscuits

    I think you're onto a winner when you get 590 comments on The Chive!
    Well cone Lauren πŸ™‚

    • Lauren Gentile

      Thank you very much! Chive is probably the most awesome-tastic place on the intrawebz. πŸ˜‰

    When I am not imprisoned in a piano practice room, or in a death-grip with my dissertation, I fill sketchbooks for the "Anatomy for Artists" class I audit. The disconcertingly secure yoga girl peering over my shoulder says there is something special about the gesture drawings I took down from your photos. When I asked her what, she said (bear with me here, I need to think through the translation), "sad melodies, swooping swallows, long-limbed girls–you never fail to appreciate a beautiful line" (her French is a bit beyond me, so I am waiting for confirmation of the translation).

    "C'est vrai," she says.

    So since you seem to be having a high self-esteem Valentine's week, perhaps you will be willing to clarify a discussion we just had about why a cleaned-up hippie who follows constellations, pursues criminology. (It is of interest to us because more than one of our models expressed the same desire). Somehow looking toward stars and chasing bad guys seems un uneasy fit, but obviously I am not getting it. Perhaps you can edify. (And yes, it was the beautiful lines that inspired the drawings–perhaps you should sit for artists, as well as commercial venues.)

  • Money

    BOOM! I want to put that in my mouth. This chick is bad, how do you approach something like that? With a ski mask and some chloroform, especially if you're posting on the chive. I don't buy the inner nerd, but who cares she could be a straight up beyotch and you'd still but up with it.

  • Christopher

    Such a thoughtful, meaningful statement. Though I was being lighthearted last night (in the nicest, possible sense of the term), you answered so genuinely and personally that I thought I might try to reply in kind.

    I guess I tend to feel similarly to your friends–the answers for which we most yearn may well be beyond words. My own experience with life and death led me deeply into language, literature and travel, as a way to understand human experience (my studies this winter have me teaching a literature course in the history of man’s search for meaning); nevertheless, I keep returning to my undergraduate training in classical music, which, for me, personally, is the most direct expression of life’s most urgent matters–it also seems to begin where words end. And then more broadly, when I travel and read, I become aware that the cultural problems that lead to conflict are often deep and complicated. In any case, Lauren, my wish for you is that you continue to pursue your appreciation of astronomy, the earth and beauty, even as you do what is necessary to make sure the forensics team has nothing but slow days. It seems that this balance, an open heart, as well as a keen and protective spirit, is difficult to sustain.

    Okay, enough heaviness (sorry, I know much this website is to be reserved for fun)–peace and Godspeed in your work!

  • MrBiscuits

    I just keep coming back… JUST to make sure….
    and yes….
    it is GOOD!

    • Lauren Gentile

      Haha! That's charming and sweet and funny all rolled into one comment: I think you win at the intranetz (and being a very nice person)! πŸ˜‰

  • kessel81

    #12 is my favorite


    I really still don't believe it.
    "Thou protest to much."
    Is she real?

    • Lauren Gentile

      I swear I am! …How can I prove it to you?! Youtube videos? πŸ™‚


        Yes to the Youtube video and mention thechive and the secret code word. πŸ˜‰
        Maybe then WE WILL ALL BELIEVE YOU……But you never sat at the Geek/nerd/marching band table did ya? πŸ˜‰

        • Lauren Gentile

          I was a huge "geek" in high school and by proxy was friends with a lot of band kids…so…yes indeed I did. I would change the scenery and visit different friends at lunch because I was pretty much friends with everyone but the kids who popped their collars. πŸ™‚

          I was part of a program called the Academy of Information Technology (A.O.I.T.) and because I was an AP and gifted student, I was pretty much immersed in the 'geek' culture. It's made me a better person, imo.

          And here's a video:


  • Luis

    But the weather in MA is so unpredictable…keeps you on your toes, gotta see the fun in that. Absolutely Beautiful though

  • AJ...


    AJ here once again. Not sure what happened with skype but my email is

  • nywolf

    Can't believe I missed this! Must have been because I only started Chive again this week.

    South Florida FTW! Miami-Homestead for me though, can't get much farther south than that. Loves Civil War, can back up what she says (2012), and knows a good quote when she sees one… do you have any faults?!?

  • bmoneey

    B-E-A-utiful! Can't wait for moar, thanks for the morning pick me up

  • CC101

    Very pretty lady

  • mtpuckhead

    Every time I have a long day or just need a pick me up I check out these pics. Totally beautiful.

  • LonelyAirman

    Dear Lauren,
    You fascinate me. First, you introduce yourself with a line from my favorite movie. Then, after reading your introduction and many of your posts and replies to other Chivers, you show yourself to be incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, kind, humble, self-assured….
    And, of course, you're physically stunning (self-evident to all who have seen your photos, of course). Of the above pictures, my favorites are 18 and 23…I can't quite put a finger on why, though.

    In any event, I would love to have a chance to carry on a more extensive dialogue at some point; you seem very worth it.
