    Hahaha! Tour guide bras!
    A row of three electronic push buttons running down the centre of the garment triggers audio greetings in English, Chinese and Korean.

    “Furthermore, tour guide flags are inserted on each side of the bra,” the company said. “When not used to guide tourists, the flags act as side stays, providing good support and creating an attractive bust line.”

    The most risque feature is a short skirt attached to the dark blue outfit that flips up to reveal a map of Japan.

    logic, on the other hand, is totally a tool of the patriarchy to oppress women (not joking)

    What? Like the concept of logic or the ideas surrounding logic, like men are logical and women are emotional?

    Cause you can have your touchy feely librul arts women's studies discussions but you leave my buddy logic out of it.

    Yeah playing original Starcraft with the PA folks has basically made me hate playing Starcraft online. I was pretty new and all I faced where rushes, reaver drops, barracks being built in my base etc. Getting your face kicked in over and over becomes not fun very fast.

    When I started playing this and people online were proxying me all the time I thought it was very unfun.

    But that added up and released when I was first able to beat one, and now I constantly take joy from it. (And beat proxies way more frequently).

    I think the logic behind "women don't choose to go into prostitution" is that we have a culture that raises women from birth to view themselves as sexual objects for the pleasure of men, therefore making prostitution seem like a viable 'choice' (whereas it wouldn't be in an egaltarian society, and if it was, it'd work more like it does for men where there are the high class 'escorts'). Basically, the idea is that women wouldn't choose to be prostitutes (or give blowjobs or get Brazilians or get breast implants etc.) if there was a society that didn't make these choices seem viable, even mandatory.

    I don't necessarily agree with it, but that explains it I hope.

    what?
    Logic is the study of arguments, so if we study arguments it follows that we'd get better at arguments, thus removing a tool of the gynocracy to keep us in place with their vaginae and boobies all making us do stuff so we get sex.

    I built several barracks in this guys base and also several bunkers. Then he was like wp gg and I was like ty gg.

    I am going to practice my 2v2 build for Terran in a bit.

    It involves Barracks, and Marines....

    And nothing else.

    :D

    Any tips for 2v2 builds by the by?

    No really smart tips apart from fast units.

    I mostly play 3v3 and sort of wing it, haven't really tried any specific builds. Our most visible problem is when they attack together first, so usually we try to be faster and do our attack early and try to bother them enough to not come running.

    Yeah, I watched the day9 daily on 2v2, and he just did basic concepts, no builds but it was basically. Either mass tier 1 asap and join your army up asap. Or, both players wall off and tech and get an economy super hard and whoever gets attacked first dies as slow as possible and then the other built up player rolls the enemy team that sacced economy for the rush. Rushing myself sounds more my style though.

    It's pretty fun! I like doing early things because I have fewer units then, so I can sort of manage them better - and there is more reason to focus on that if you only have a couple of units to utilize. So that you don't lose them for nothing.

    Also because I begin to not play well after 10 minutes of a game. My pals are pretty sharp though so I can take it easy most of the time.

    yeah but here's where the problem with that mentality is:

    i work in retail. i sell menswear. if we lived in some mythical, perfect society where no person was fashion-conscious, where we didn't require a fiat currency in order to exchange goods and services without selfish people taking all of it, then my job wouldn't exist and i wouldn't need to do it.

    so

    whatever
