    I just hope the game you're working on happens to be a dark magic fantasy game set in a desert, so all your time is spent either on sandwiches, or sand witches.

  • NicNic Registered User regular
    The sandwiches are a fringe perk, the job pays in dollars. Plus it's hard to tax sandwich-based incomes.

    Congratulations Fug. Seriously bro i know you could make it.

    They could always implement a fringe benefit tax where the local mayor pops around and takes two bites out of every sandwich you earn.
    Though that would be only if you were earning over 500 sandwiches per year.

    I feel like the top percentage of sandwich earners should be giving more in this economy, but on the other hand, I don't think I'd like it if the revenue service came to my door to take away my hard earned bread and butter, yeah this joke is over.

    So I see someone pulled out the chickitten for the totp... I'm guessing I don't want to read the past few pages, do I.

    I played through Portal 2 finally today, having just last week built a computer capable of running it. Spoilers in case the rest of you are as far behind on these things as I am.
    Spoiler:

    Dude, forget everything you know about Portal 2, and play it in cooperative mode, then download some new maps and try them.

    I finished the single player part faster than any other game ever, and I was in love with the game, but when I got a friend to play it in coop mode, it was a WHOLE different experience, a really enhanced experience. (voice chat is a must)

    So Time has a cover story about breast feeding women. Not sure how you guys stand on this but it's a bit of an odd situation. I mean, I'm all for breast feeding. I think it provides great benefits to the child. However, I have a friend whose wife still breast feeds her daughter and she's about two years old now. The child can talk and ask for the mother's breast. I feel a bit odd about that situation. This is especially true when I'm over at their house and she whips out her boob in the living room while we're all sitting and conversing.

    The article talks about women breast feeding seven year old children and the cover photo is of a women and her three year old son breast feeding. I find this pretty bizarre.

    When would somebody draw the line on this?

    "I still breast feed my son. Just couldn't ween him off the tit."
    "Really? How long has this been going on?"
    "Quite some time. LIttle bugger gets a big excited and nips me with his teeth every once in a while. They grow up so fast. He just got his learner's permit."

    I nanny'd for a family where the mother was still breast feeding her two and a half year old. It's weird hearing a toddler whine about wanting milk. It can also cause weird psychological/sociological "issues" if I remember my old college psych class correctly. Like how your kid could end up having severe cases of Freudian dementia or whatever, haha.

    There are only a certain number of weeks that breast feeding is really necessary or ideal. After that it's probably the mother that has a problem, not the child.

  • GrifterGrifter TorontoModerator mod
    From my understanding, after six months all of the mother's anit-bodies have been passed to the child. There's no real need beyond that. I can understand up to one year old. After that, I feel a bit apprehensive about the whole thing. Of course, I probably wouldn't care except these are probably the same women fighting to be able to breast feed at restaurants and other public places. That's just what I want to see while I'm eating my dinner. Some lady sitting at the table with her five year old child sucking down an after dinner snack from her breast.

  • tynictynic PICNIC BADASS Registered User, ClubPA regular
    six months is the minimum recommended. There's some evidence of benefits up to around a year or so. After that it's not really a useful health thing.
    At least it went out on a high note, tyn.

    My adviser continues to be an idiot.

    I literally taped my USB drive to the outside of the portfolio. I got word back that he pried off my name tag because he thought it would be under it. WHY WOULD I PUT IT UNDER MY NAME TAG FOR YOU TO RIP OFF- THAT IS HOW YOU KNOW IT IS MINE.

    If he just looked at it for 2 seconds, he would have gone "Oh hey, it is TAPED TO THE FRONT OF THE PORTFOLIO."

    Haha. Napp, I was extremely confused until it dawned on me you meant "taped". That is ridiculous though, I think advisers are known for being a little, uh... not all there? I had a horrible adviser all through college until literally my last semester.

    This is killing me though. I need to get this approved to graduate and he is so not even trying to meet me halfway here.

    I should have asked for a new adviser but until now, nothing he's done really impacted my chances of graduating on time so I didn't care that much.

    The good thing about breast feeding is that its free. I can see why people choose it in order to save, but I dont want my wife breastfeeding a 5 year old.

    This reminds me of that saturday night live sketch where a grown will farrel came out of a woman's vagina, "Wow, I sure am hungry. I could go for a denver omelet or maybe some BOOBIE"

  • GrifterGrifter TorontoModerator mod
    Well, my friend whose wife is still breast feeding their two year old has read the book that the mother is following. She's pretty bullish about it so I'm guessing that he's just going with the flow for now. I hope that if it goes on for too long that he'll say something about it. He's a pretty smart guy but I think he's leaving a lot of the baby decisions to his wife.

    Funnily, she's also one of those women who gets pissed if you tell her that she can't change her child in certain places. Like she tried to change the child on a restaurant table once and a waitress stopped her and told her to go to the bathroom to do that. She got all pissed off about that. I had to give her a reality check. If I saw somebody change a child at a restaurant table I would ask specifically to not be seated at that table. If I was sitting at the restaurant eating while somebody did that I would complain and possibly leave if nobody did something. She didn't understand why until I explained that she's introducing faeces and urine into an environment where people are consuming edibles. Major health issues.

  • MetalbourneMetalbourne Tube's Favorite Registered User regular
    Shit, I had to stop a parent from changing a baby on a plane. while it was landing.

    yeah, I'm sure the little bastard will get diaper rash or something if you don't change him.

    I'm also sure his little shit stained corpse will hit the co-pilot in the back of the fucking head if we land just right. Strap that fucking welfare check down for the next five minutes.

    Breast milk is actually quite high in glucose, and can cause kids all sorts of dental issues if they're breastfeeding beyond 2-3.
    Personally I think it's a bit fucking wierd to breastfeed beyond 2. Nobody wants to remember chowing down on Mums cans, you want that shit squelched from your memory bank.

    EDIT: Actually that may not be entirely true, I just heard that from a Mum who felt the need to spill her story to me about long term breast feeding. The entire conversation was incredibly uncomfortable....she breast fed up to 5 years.

    Speaking of kids, I haven't post a pic up of my daughter recently. She's getting plenty big.

    I'm honestly surprised that she didn't get immediately booted and the whole place shut down for the night. Because that's what's supposed to happen when a crazy lady changes a shitty diaper in the middle of a restaurant.

    True, but a new user is also much more likely to get overlooked in there. That's up to you, but I just don't want it to seem like new people aren't welcome. My art probably wasn't much better when I first started posting.
