The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[CHAT] ME FIVE!

    Did you get self-harm and suicide attempt mixed up?

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    Brer Rabbit is a pretty cool folk character.

    I love trickster type stories.

    As a kid I found the tar baby offensive. It's still kind of offensive.

    Mistaking a lump of tar for a person seems p. offensive, yo.

    If a black cartoon character mistook a snowman for a white person, however, I'd be tickled pink.

    WHITE HAVE THE ABILITY TO TURN PINK! WE ARE CHAMELEONS!

    Hmm. Just beat ME2 for the first time. Pretty unsatisfying ending. Really not satisfied at all with that. The main story in general was pretty weak, and all the side-quests and character focused stuff was way better. Felt more like a bridge between 1 and 3.
    On the other hand, now you talk like Mordin, so that's cool.

    yeah but if they're closeted how are they even part of the study?

    1) If they were previously in the closet, and got a girl pregnant there, they still check that box on the survey,

    and

    2) A lot of kids are out in surveys that aren't out in real life (this is a survey given to all kids, and this is the subset of data from kids who self-identified as gay).

    Edit: yeah, the difference in those suicide numbers comes from factoring in "Asian girl," which turns 20% into 49%.

    It is weird--you'd think that if there was one thing gay kids would beat straight kids at, it would be avoiding teen pregnancy. But nope. The world is not kind in even that one respect.

    Huh, 1959. Sleeping Beauty. So it's been half a century.

    Beauty and the Beast?

    She wasn't a Princess.

    Yeah but she is a "Disney Princess" for all intents and purposes.

    Eh, I guess. That was '91. Twenty years then. Still been some time.

    Looking at wiki it seems that the Tar baby story arose independently both in Africa (where it was Anansi instead of Brer Rabbit) and the Cherokee.

    There were some details different in both stories, but the modern version is a mash-up of the two.

    That is cool!

    Could this just be survey error? I mean aren't sex surveys notoriously unreliable? Or is that just teen boys?

    Ariel the mermaid was a princess. She seemed plenty white after the sea witch turned her human.

    I suppose it's always possible, but it is a big statewide survey, so the data is relatively good.

    * Rapunzel from Tangled has appeared in some Disney Princess merchandise, but as of February 10, 2011 is not listed as an official princess on the Disney Princess website.

    "Disney Princess" is a product line that does all sorts of merchandise, and Rapunzel hasn't made it on any of those little backpacks and bandaids and whatever.

    So hey, I got accepted to the super-competitive academic honors program at my college.

    Then, during the orientation meeting, was told that I cannot be part of that program and the elementary school teaching program at the same time.

    So yeah.

    Saw it. Was pretty good. Fun action movie.

    What was cool was it wasn't so much an alien movie as a war movie with aliens.

    You think they would take away Prince Charles title for wanting to be Camilla's tampon but that didn't happen. So apparently it's hard to stop being a prince.
