Re: "Convincing pickup line" Discussion

One girl had sex with (among others) a guy and a girl, who also had sex together. I'm guessing from the first girl's other monogamous flings that this wasn't a three-way deal (especially since I imagine these are pretty rare in high schools, though I could be wrong), in which case there were three ...

Re: Nonsense language moment

Linguafranca - I would have guessed England. But from what you said about your mother, I guess I wouldn't have been ENTIRELY off-base. :)

Re: Nonsense language moment

Semantically, yeah, it doesn't make much sense, but if they understood you, I guess you're in the clear. :-) Sounds to me like it was a conflation of "Are they all to go out?" and "Do they all have to go out?", but I could be way off-base here. Speaking of which, where are you fr...

Re: make your own curse words

...Impressive collection we have so far. I myself am fond of using "pants" in many situations - it earns "wtf?" looks from an entire room if done properly. "Fuckbeans" and "fuckballs", for whatever reason, are also appealing. I guess I just needed that cadence...

Re: Nucular

As a linguistics major at the University of Chicago, the first thing all us self-righteous academics had to get over was the idea that language change was 'bad' or inferior. This in no way means that we're not allowed to be annoyed by it; just that we have to keep it to ourselves. :wink: That said, ...

Re: Rock Band

Those of you that took my above comment and started coming up with the colors for the notes:

Win. So much win. <3

I wish it were actually a rock song, though. That's the kind of nerdy attention to detail that I could really get behind.

Re: Rock Band

Am I the only one whose first thought was, "I wonder what song those notes are from?" Sometimes I can pick things like that out, but I'm not actually _that_ good at reading music. Thoughts? Is it even a real song? @Sartorius et al: Rock on, man. Symphony Hero would be truly sweet. And I al...

It's not a coincidence.

Re: "Pix plz" Discussion

Wow, kids. This thread has started over. A whole bunch of people came in, decided they had to make a further (repetitive) point about how you have to deal with this kind of thing on the Interwebs, and now everything is escalating. Again. You know, we (women) are aware that many guys see it as a joke...

Re: "Pix plz" Discussion

I must say, having spent most of my life primarily with guys, I have been asked for advice many times - frequently in the role as Martian/Venusian interpreter. However, the point is more or less moot, because these are good friends of mine, and it is decidedly NOT an anonymous situation. As to women...

Re: "Pix plz" Discussion

LassLisa FTW. I really liked Belial's argument that the incredulous types are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. That seems to be the root of the disagreement here - women won't remain where they feel disrespected; thus, in those circles, people claiming to be women are trying to dupe you out of/i...

Re: "Pix plz" Discussion

Zecro's point is actually pretty interesting. He seems to have a pretty straightforward and practical approach to the matter. Yes, there are guys that pretend to be girls. This warrants proof from people claiming to be girls. My attitude here, however, is that if I have nothing to lose by being fool...

Re: "Pix plz" Discussion

I find all the (fairly nuanced) positions that are being expressed here pretty fascinating. The facts of the matter are clear, but there are as many potential solutions or attitudes as there are people posting. My tendency is to try and distill discussions like this down to their most basic conflict...

You know, I actually managed to make it through most of my life without seeing Goatse or Tubgirl. I heard quite a few references, so I knew more or less what they were. One day, however, curiosity overtook me... Goatse struck me as not that bad. Tubgirl was the true horror. I still need to bleach my...

Hi all, Name's Megan and I'm a student at the University of Chicago.

Yarg female non-nerd! :-) I've had this happen so many times. Usually it's me and my father at Fry's, but I tend to defer to his superior nerdity. Although, the boyfriend and I have been known to argue for far too long over component parts at Radio Shack. (It was an emergency robotics project! I swe...
