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

I'm TERRIBLE with this. It's a constant struggle. I'd like to say it's because my dad was a physics professor who enjoyed lecturing, but it's a weak excuse (because he mostly lectured about things he actually knew, and other people really didn't know).

The urge, for me, is to share information, and try to help. At least, that's the "reasoning". There's a lot of bullshit in that. I'm thinking there's a lot of SGitR going on, and the "impress people" dominance position.

My main problem these days is my delivery. I've worked on making sure I don't talk shit about things of which I know nothing, but when I'm talking from a place of knowledge, I can sound WAY condescending. I'm not sure how I do it yet, or how to stop it, but I've found that e-prime seems to help. Really. When I make something about a personal experience rather than a generalized Truthiness, it goes over better.

I'd like to keep talking about this.

Bless my wife, who has not only put up with it, but who has also helped me realize when I'm doing it, with a minimum of violence towards me.

I don't say it enough, but I feel genuinely lucky to have access to a brain and skills such as yours, Cain.  IR is something I have scant knowledge of.  It's like pulling back a curtain.

I first heard Lemmy in Hawkwind, which made me listen to Space Ritual again, for the first time in more than a decade.  It holds up.

And though Lemmy doesn't play on this track. "Sonic Attack" seems to be perfectly made for this board.

In case of Sonic Attack on your district, follow these rules...

 If you are making love, it is imperative to bring all bodies to orgasm simultaneously
 Do not waste time blocking your ears
 Do not waste time seeking a soundproof shelter
 Try to get as far away from the sonic source as possible
 Do not panic... (do not panic)

 Use your wheels, it is what they are for
 Small babies may be placed inside the special cocoons and should be left, if possible, in shelters
 Do not attempt to use your own limbs
 If no wheels are available, metal, not organic, limbs should be employed whenever possible...
 Remember, in the case of Sonic Attack survival does mean every man for himself (for himself)
 Statistically more people survive if they think only of themselves (only themselves)

 Do not attempt to rescue friends, relatives, loved ones.
 You have only a few seconds to escape
 Use those seconds sensibly or you will inevitably DIE.

 Do not panic (do not panic)
 Think only of yourself (only of yourself)
 Think only of yourself

 These are the first signs of Sonic Attack:
 You will notice small objects, such as ornaments, oscillating
 You will notice a vibration in your diaphragm
 You will hear a distant hissing in your ears
 You will feel dizzy
 You will feel the need to vomit
 THERE WILL BE BLEEDING FROM ORIFICES
 There will be an ache in the pelvic region
 You may be subject to fits of hysterical shouting, or even... laughter
 These are all sign of imminent Sonic destruction.

 Your only protection is flight
 If you are less than ten years old remain in the shelters and use your cocoon
 Remember: you can help no-one else.

 You can help no-one else.

 Do not panic.
 Do not panic.
 Think only of yourself.
 Think only of yourself.
 Think only of yourself.

20 days to live life.

What do?
As in bucket list or holidays?

A spiritual bucket list to be my chaotic, nihilistic, assholey self, before I go and get values like loyalty, honor, and honesty installed in my hard drive.

20 days till basic training. I know it won't change who I am completely, but it's going to change some of my core values so I want to give this me a good send off, before a better person steps up and takes his place.

Be compassionate to others, leave a place or person better than when you found it.

Check your significant other privilege, spaglord.

Thank you, Cain!  There's more meat there than I expected.

Merry Christmas and Christmas Eve, you wonderful bastards, you.

Not so merry.  You remember Charley (the guy who kept shooting Dom's character in the back?)

He died today, at age 33, of heart failure.

Between this and Hats closing up shop, this is the worst Christmas in a very long time.

I don't know anyone you're talking about, but you have my sympathies.

They gave then entire cleaning staff the same two weeks off?

That's insane.

In relation to the OP, the Dems are now eating each other, what with this glitch/hack by a Bernie staff member.

"We want a schism too!"
