Re: Inequality

Such situations being 'rare' in the developed world rather than 'unique'. If it happens in non-Soviet Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia/New Zealand, or at this point in South Korea, it's not unique to America. Hookworm, tho. However, that could be associated with some hippy-dippy new-ager using hookw...

Re: The son of "What the hell are YOU staring at?"

it's as faithful to the source material as starship troopers! Starship Troopers is great! it is! the general anti-consensus on here is that it strays too far from the techno-fascist militarism handjobbery of the book. i'd say it goes all in instead and is great because of it. I think that's just El...

Re: What are you drinking?

Anyone ever drink anything like this ? Looks disgusting, yet I feel strangely compelled (Dio *is* actually a wizard!) to try it for the novelty. Looks like it's in the same ballpark as mulled wine only it's ale and sherry instead? I wonder what sort of modern equivalent would come closest to "ale" ...

No. He’s saying that they shouldn’t say ‘you don’t see this anywhere else in the developed world’ if you do in fact see it elsewhere in the developed world.

Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

There's a line between 'I can explain why you shouldn't' and 'creepy/gross' that turns into a motte and bailey. I can tell a friend, 'don't touch people you just met, even if it's in a friendly way, it's about personal space'. I can't seem to get people to define 'creepy' beyond "I don't like that"...

They usually have a function in a corner of the frame that will expand the video to a larger size or full screen. Facebook reverses those. What the actual ...

Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

I can't imagine this is new, and I seem to remember (but it might be an incepted memory) of similar stories among the players in the near end-game of the 00's housing/credit bubble. I'm pretty sure they weren't 'just' models and went whole hog with ladies of the night. This I suspect I did witness,...

I've lived in Atlanta long enough to note the local youth fashions and can confirm: yes, that's definitely the wrong underwear for those shorts. The current style calls for your underwear to stick out at least six inches above the waistband, and it looks like you've barely got three, there. Really?...
