You can get hand-held “bidets”, basically a squirt bottle with an angled nozzle. I’ve been meaning to buy one and try it out. Maaybe now’s the time.

Seconding Bananabunny’s comment, and adding, if you like to listen, just go ahead and listen. People will tell you what they are passionate about (it may not always be the subjects you are curious about, though!). Read more

I didn’t get that from the article, but a higher percentage of black people live in poverty in the US than white people (although the overall number of poor white Americans is higher because there are more white people in America than there are black people), so an AI program that discriminates against people based on Read more

We don’t have to hypothesize the logical consequences of an absolute legal right to an abortion. There is already a country without legal restriction on abortion that we can look at to see what happens in real life. Are Canadians aborting healthy, close-to-term fetuses? No, they are not. Read more
