Several times a month, I will be in a store aisle reaching for something and feel a hand going up the inside of my thigh. When I turn around to find myself alone with a woman, and ask her if she would prefer me to hold still so she can get a better feel for the situation, oftentimes she will act "shocked" claiming nothing had happened, it must be somebody else...

Honestly, if you react the way to our teasing like you did above, I don't think anyone here would fault you for making this sort of mistake.

For reals, Honey, I was just funnin'! It was a good opportunity to make a joke. :)

Honey, great response to the teasing!  :)

I saw another thread here or somewhere that said Discordians influenced the naming of the planet.

Prince MuChao of 23AE did send an email to the guy that was in charge of deciding, while it's moniker was still Xena. PMC suggested that Eris would fit the classical naming scheme and highlight the Strife that the 'dwarf planet debate' that Her discovery caused in academia circles.

I think the Naming actually dissolved the controversy through the attention, as the scientists had to wonder a moment about the Strife/strife coincidence at which point they couldn't take the 'dwarf= not real planet' conflict all that seriously.


Good job, and once again, we see who the Real Illuminati are.

Cool.  I gotta use that for Intermittens 7 Operation Mindfuck (see the Think for Yourself Thread). You can't get a bigger OM than naming a planet!
