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!

    Multi-grain should have a mascot too.

    Like, a black guy, an asian guy, a white guy and I don't know how many grains are in here. I see three colors.

    I have the Gmail addon that tests if you're drunk if you try emailing someone late at night, but it doesn't work for me because I'm good at math no matter how much liquor I've had.

    Alright, I dunno what to do.

    I ask this girl out. Few days later, we go on a date. She hugs me and we set up another one. Few days later, I have to reschedule the date. The next day, I text her to ask her if she wants to do something in the next few days. No response for two days now.

    Do I call now? Just wait until the day before we're supposed to go out again (next Sunday)?

    I've had girls just pretend I don't even exist before, even though they've been very positive the whole time :/

    Call, if she answers invite her to something impromptu, must be within the next two days.

    If she declines, "dang. Well should I just call again next time something's up?"

    Of she says yes then do so.

    If she does not answer do not leave a message, try again in a few days. This can be tried a maximum of three times.

    The key is to keep the ball in your court, but give her no pressure opportunities to back out at the end of each exchange until she shows a clear intent for or against, and then roll with that response.

    Was he racist. John Wayne being racist is a pretty good trip. John Wayne not being racist is a bigger trip, though.

    I just watched Bridesmaids. It was funny enough but I was disappointed. Anchoring effects are very real.

    Not if she hasn't indicated disinterest! If she's unsure, there's nothing wrong with a little convincing. And a little short-term pursuit feels very nice, even if she decides she's not interested.

    Okay so I don't want to sound insensitive because the guy just died, but synching really is the most goddamn stupid thing anyone has ever come up with.

    I just literally MOVED an ICON and iTunes is going through 6 full "steps" to accomplish this gargantuan feat.

    Well, she scheduled another date with him, so it's possible she's interested. I think he should try again to verify, actually calling her to get an immediate response instead of texting. If she doesn't answer or avoids a date, then you're probably right that she's uninterested.

    I pretty much loathe "breakfast food" and generally eat nothing or last nights leftovers. When I was on a fitness kick and had to eat I ate crazy shit like fish and raw eggs. Breakfast basically boils down to quick and easy which is why people dig cereal.

    I guess I am at the point in my life where if a girl doesn't seem enthusiastic, I'm not inclined to be, either. I am forward and excited about the people I like, and I'll definitely try to guide towards another meeting and stuff to do... but if she seems like she could sort of take or leave it, meh.

    MEH.

    I heard it was great so I ended up being disappointed because I was expecting something really awesome. I'm not sure if that is anchoring or negative anchoring. As for anchoring effects in general, wikipedia says

    Calling at 11:45 at night on a Saturday probably wasn't the best idea...

  • OrganichuOrganichu Registered User regular
    It's important to say stuff like,

    "I just... I just really like you, you know?"

    and

    "I mean, this isn't a weird call to make, right? This isn't weird. Is it? No... no, this definitely isn't weird. So yeah, get back to me about when you're free. I hope this isn't weird."
