Re: Think Before Naming Your Child

A girl in my TEFL course is named Elizabeth. Her two sisters are also named Elizabeth. Two of them use nicknames for Elizabeth (thankfully there are a fuckton), and one uses her middle name (they all have different middle names). They weren't adopted, they all were given the name Elizabeth by their ...

It's generally a year. Sherlock is a special case though - each episode was 2 hours long! Well, not really. Sherlock episodes are 1.5 hours long, and the times between are variable.

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQA Thread - Queer Support!

The binarist view of the term "bisexual" actually annoys a lot of people. Most are attracted to more than just binary genders, even genders outside of binary. When you look at the people who take the identity, they can cover the same genders as a pansexual or polysexual. The way the phrase...
