Requiem adventures part 3 is up.  We kill things in this video.

Incidentally, I've been watching these when I work from home.  Just so you know someone's watching.

Management is on the ball as ever, I see.

Eagerly awaiting your missives.

I agree, it was very well done.  I had been experiencing a personal Gaiman backlash of sorts, in that his stories (especially prose) are all of a type, and asking yourself "what's the most fairy tale/mythic/Joseph Campbell thing to do right now?" usually determines major plot points, but his writing always draws me in, despite that.

A combination of Cheddar and Jack.  Swiss or Gruyere is more traditional, but like I said, this was remnants of a taco party.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Picking Cain's Brains

First off, I'm not Cain.  Secondly, this post isn't about whether they should be called terrorists.  Ignore the following if you want to, I understand.

So, what I'm mainly seeing is that people are trying to underline a contrast between how we're treating the White Militants, and the various liberal protest movements (Black Lives Matter, etc).  But for me, they're drawing the arrow the wrong way.  What I see is them saying, "why aren't you shooting the hell out of the whites with guns, since that's what you do to unarmed black protesters?"

It seems to me the question should be framed as, "why didn't you leave the unarmed black protesters alone, like you are doing to the white militants?"  There's still hypocrisy being pointed out, but it sets the level of morality as peaceful law enforcement responses to protest, instead of violent ones.

I dunno.  Just what's been on my FB feed of late.


Anyway, that didn't answer your question.  Just wanted to comment.

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: Mansplaining: Why?

I also want to repeat, again, that I brought that my friend up AS AN EXAMPLE of a commonplace occurrence, and that the point of this thread is not to solve an interpersonal problem.

However, one thing I have gotten from this thread is that if I do broach the subject with any mansplainer, I better sugar-coat the everloving fuck out of it, or it will all be my fault because his feelings will hurt.
 :lulz:


Sorry about that, Nigel.  I went back and realized the OP didn't ask for solutions.  I was thinking of this one, further down the page:

Also, a related question: should I tell my friend that he does this? Should I just be "you're mansplaining, friend, FYI"?


Anyway, I'm not sure I have much else to offer, but I'll keep thinking about it.  Thanks for bringing it up.

Christ, this thread is a clusterfuck.


On OP terms, I'd suggest bringing up the concept of mansplaining to this guy in a neutral space, to get him familiar with the term. Then after, when he starts doing it, reference the original conversation.

In personal experience, it doesn't take well the first half-dozen times, but if he's a guy that wants to be better about this stuff, it'll change.

Same here.

I fear there's also a touch of misogyny here as well, with some men automatically assuming a woman doesn't know as much about a thing as they do. And then there's the times when a woman may not know the minutiae of a certain subject, and doesn't really care to know more about it, but the dude keeps nattering on.
