Can the new intro thread include Nigel's "identify your privileges" thing as well? Handle everything right from the get-go.So helpful.
When I start the new intro thread, I'll be asking people to please state their racial issues, etc, in their signatures. Like a sign, you know, that will tell us all WHAT without the tedium of actually having to read their knuckle-dragging bullshit.
MASH was particularly bad. Here's this Nurse Captain, Hoolihan, and she's trying to run a MILITARY HOSPITAL to deal with HORRIBLE WARTIME CASUALTIES.And the rare occasion that she manages to chase a bit of wartime romance with Frank or someone else, manages to find someone who wants something more than to ogle and objectify her, the rest of the unit prank her and make the tent fall down to embarrass them, or set up an elaborate series of tricks such that they are both running all about the camp and always missing each other and the audience supports them. NOPE, TRY AGAIN LATER, BACK TO THE TRAUMATIC INJURIES AND DYING INNOCENCE OF SOLDIERCHILDREN.
And the heroes are all "NICE RACK, BIMBO!"
Oh, and Hee Haw.
We got reruns of both.Somehow I remember watching a lot of Gilligan's Island but am only 24. This is the kind of stuff they do on television in upside-down land. When we run out of hobbits and wizards, it's reruns from the 70s and curfew is imposed until the series is over.
Good old fashioned values!
I haven't seen any reruns of matlock, or night rider yet.
Who do you thump if the fight seems evenly matched?I don't understand one thing.
If I see anyone getting punched by someone more physically powerful than themselves, I'm probably going to step in. Doesn't matter who the victim is, what gender, etc.
Does this make me a bad guy?
White knight privilege or something like that. Better check Tumbler.
I just like an excuse to thump people and feel good about it, really.
I think there's a problem with your plan.I had to wear a windbreaker ALL DAY today.
I think the moral here is we should live in Portland in the summer and Tuscon in the winter.
Wednesday/Thursday training class, "Situational Awareness", cancelled because the instructor was apparently killed at the airport when stepping in front of a shuttle bus.
Which is even funnier than the original report (car accident).
I live in a James Thurber novel.
