Hedgehogs are Cute

I see a lot of parallels between the mid-19th century and today in terms of people moving around a lot, arriving at a new place, and trying to make social/romantic connections however they could when the default (local community and church) was not an option.

I think this is great research and it goes with one of the Read more

It’s not a late 90s isometric, real-time-with-pause RPG, sure. It’s Divinity: Original Sin 2 in a D&D universe with 5th Edition rules that are implemented about as well as in any previous game. But don’t let the name keep you from a game that should be pretty good when it releases! Read more

Step 1 to having an affair is that you stop giving a fuck about your current relationship.

They had different skin colors but not facial structure or hair like you see in the picture at the top of the page.

The original faces didn’t have facial animations for the most part, but the ones in the current retail version do; guessing that’s where the hard part would come from.

Either way, it’s a positive change Read more

I’m not sure what you expect. Do you want someone taking out a firearm and start shooting in a dark, crowded theater?

Active shooters are after one thing once they open fire: body count. They are extremely likely to either kill themselves or get shot by police so self-preservation isn’t an issue. Charging unarmed at a Read more

He did, though. The author said something “never” happens and that’s a strong claim to make...because you need only one example to prove the statement wrong.

TL:DR about Bridge: it’s Spades with varying trump suits and a bidding minigame. The bidding minigame’s entire point is to have you and your partner tell each other what you have so you can end at the best bid.

It’s a lot of fun, though! The hard part’s finding people to play with.

Serena had a good tournament, but watching her in several matches in Wimbledon, it seems like she’s not moving as much or as quickly as she used to. I completely understand why, with her complicated pregnancy and getting older in general, but I wonder if she might be going the way of Federer, where she is still Read more

There is a big difference between a 13-year old having sex with a 13-year old and a 23-year old having sex with a 13-year old, which is why one is illegal and the other one is not. Specifically, the difference in emotional maturity and understanding how sex and relationships work lead to those relationships being Read more

I can give you plenty of examples where violence is approved and beneficial in some way, from anything from the military and police, boxing/MMA/wrestling, football, hunting, or self-defense (unarmed or armed).

Can you give me any examples of sexual acts committed by an adult to a child are approved or beneficial?

I gave an example of 13, which is how old a normal girl in middle school is (the character in the article is in middle school).

You can see how old someone is in ways other than chest size, and to argue that’s what I’m doing is completely disingenuous.

There’s a line between having silly/stupid sexual dialogue and making a middle-schooler be presented as someone that you can do sexual acts with.

I’m not going to complain about Playboy showing tits. I would complain if Playboy showed models that looked clearly underage, which they don’t because showing pictures of a Read more

The problem is that people who actually do pedophilia start with lesser offenses and gradually work their way up. So a pedophile would likely have watched child porn or done indecent exposure or solicited sex from a minor before their first offense of sexual assault against a child.

So it’s not a case of “either they Read more

I think Trump has been decent at following through with his promises: we got a trade war, tax cuts, young Republican Supreme Court justices, and a travel ban on Muslims (excuse me, on people from selected countries that happen to be all majority-Muslim). He was missing the wall, and considering this shutdown became a Read more

That quote is a great summary of why many Blizzard fans were wary of the Acti-Blizz merger back when it was first announced.

Also, from personal experience, “do more with less” results in a cycle of people producing less, management coming under pressure for the lack of results, the work atmosphere turning more Read more

I agree with pretty much everything you said. I’ll repeat the depression thing because that’s exactly how it sounds like to me; she feels guilty and blames herself for the husband being unhappy. She needs to feel like she does good things for him, instead of him confirming her self-hating thoughts by agreeing with Read more

For the first poster, regardless of what you want to do personally or sexually, don’t forget that (at the moment), you are all that your wife has. She doubtless realizes what she can’t do, she is alone with a mental illness (or multiple), without a support network, and she is going through major life changes. People Read more

This is a great article. I’ve had depression, social anxiety, and a few other mental issues for most of my adult life, but at the end of the day, I realize that this is my life and I need to do the things that make my life what I want it to be.

There is a scene in Ratatouille where the critic says that “the bitter Read more
