From 2007-10 it was run by Anna Holmes, who actually had some journalistic credentials (degree in journalism, staff writer for a magazine).

Interestingly, most of the stupid things it has done have been post 2010.

Ah, that makes sense. I remember liking it, and then all of a sudden being horrified that I'd ever liked it.

Via Cracked I came across this little gem regarding a Jezebel writer and tattoos:

tl:dr Jezebel writer wants neck tattoo, artist refuses (as they often do to people who aren't already covered in tats and want a face/neck tattoo), Jezebel writer decides to whip up the internet mob in revenge and mock other people who got tattoos from the artist in question, tattoo artist responds above.
Gotta love people who think they have the right to be OUTRAGED because an artist won't do what they want. ART FOR ME, ART MONKEY! ART NOW!

For a feminist publication, and all the feminist criticisms of capitalism and how it turns women into commodities, some writers at Jezebel are sure happy to do the same to others.

Jezebel is a horrible, horrible magazine. It's like Cosmopolitan interbred with Huffpo and Tumblr.

Was it always like this?  I remember being impressed early on, but I may just have been stupid.

It was definitely all right early on.

Listen, you guys. I can't be here for this. I stayed off the board all day, hoping it would die down, but... here it is. I asked you to set my permissions to n00b for a REASON. I CHOSE to be locked out of the pogs board. If you want to have this out in the open, like in the old days... well, that's your decision to make. But you know perfectly well that I can't. I can't go back there, I can't be around this. It cost me too much, back then -- I wanted more kids. And yeah, I know I did it to myself, but things are different now. Things are better, a LOT better. I have my shit together, I'm almost done with my degree, I'm going places.

I'm not like I was. And my hands are shaking, writing this. But I don't want to be like I was, either. So I'm gonna take a break from this place, for a while at least.

See you on the flip side.

Dammit. I'm crying now.


A falsehood which preserves order is clearly preferable to a truth which permits chaos.

Leaving aside the rest, I think it is worth reiterating that order and chaos are not opposites. Preserving order can - and often does - increase chaos. Permitting chaos can - and often does - lead to more order. None of these qualities have anything inherently to do with truth or falsehood.

It's that whole entropy-emergence tension, the beautiful dance of the universe.

I've been giving him the benefit of the doubt and assuming he's trolling, but the less charitable possibility is that this kid is actually this dumb but thinks he's smart, possibly as a side effect of spending his formative years on a chan-alike.

Wow guys why the hate?  :cry:

Look I found this really interesting site, apparently you can make your own pogs??

They also talk about tazos, caps, flippos and walkers? Are these the same as pogs?? All that old timey slang is so weird LOL


When Faust sees this I just... I don't even want to think about it.

I tried going outside last night.

Some guy tried to pee in the front door and a bunch of kids were throwing rocks at a car.

Yeah, for you, outside might be a bad idea.

Meh, I suppose it's just the joys of being a hermit and working from home and all, its weird, I find myself less likely to censor myself when talking to work colleagues (when I should), and find myself much more nervous around people I don't know then I used to.

Working at home kind of did a number on me, too. I found that I could counteract  it to some degree by going out and socializing, but that got harder and harder to do and at some point I found myself home alone, depressed and boredom-drinking a lot.


Depends on the zone that you will traverse thru, like, the city is not huge in terms of kilometrical size, but it is in terms of density of things, places and people; traffic and trasportation can become an issue, for example, travelling from southmost to northernmost usually takes 2 and a half hours because one needs to mix buses with metro and vans to get thru, while travelling from westmost to easternmost takes only 30-40 minutes because one only need to use the metro.

I'll be coming from the airport; I can't really tell what to expect of the area from maps. I need to do some reading!

Hows your research going? You can ask me whatever.

Iiiiiiii don't even know. At one point I found a hostel I was going to ask you about, but then I forgot, so I am going to leave this window open as a reminder to myself to find it and ask you about the neighborhood.

That's nice! Who is it?

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK will a mod please delete this thread??


I dont know about lab-type silicone vs sex-toy silicone but what im inferring is that silicone is sanitizable thru the process of "recycling" it which implies breaking it down from its current form into the base material, sanitizing it and then making a new thing out of said material .

No  :? Or is silicone sanitizable by other means?

If you boil something for long enough you'll sanitize it. That's not going to break down silicone products, but it might literally break a vibrator that hasn't been made water-tight (and a lot of them aren't).

You should stop posting on this topic now, because it is painfully clear that your experience with both sex toys and with sterilizing methods is far too limited for you to be opining.

Whether or not a sex toy can be made sterile depends heavily on the material used. Glass dildos? Easy. Silicone? Not so much.

Somehow, I don't think they're limiting their stock to glass and steel.

I'll let my lab know that we have to stop using silicone because, contrary to decades of biomedical understanding, it's really hard to sterilize.

I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about porous silicone foam. The stuff with dimples.

I'm sure it could be sterilized with an autoclave. I wouldn't expect it to be sterilized after being rubbed down with hand sanitizer.

So you're not talking about the vast majority and enormous variety of silicone sex toys, you're just talking about this one weird one that you had once.

That's super reasonable.

I am not sure where you're getting your information, but you can sterilize silicone via autoclave, chemicals, or radiation. While there is some really specialized silicone for certain medical uses, sex toy silicone is not, in general, appreciably different from lab silicone. Dildos can be sterilized in a dishwasher.
