    I don't know what PantsB is trying to say in the sexuality thread, and I think it is because I keep getting distracted by the image meme

    :(

    tl;dr version (wall of text because I'm getting annoyed at work and needed a reset)

    The study of sexuality is an extremely subjective field, and there's a lot of confirmation bias because it is so subjective, those people who conduct the surveys are largely not dispassionate observers and there's a natural tendency towards Normal=good so to show that non-hetero/unusual sexuality doesn't deserve stigma I will show that its normal.

    gotcha

    oh well guess i need to get some habanero sauce (8k)

    You can get liquid capsacin (I think thats the word its the spicey part of habenero), it comes with huge warning about diluting it though as it can burn your tastebuds out. I recall my father used it while at a bakery and the amounts mixed with food were fairly small for huge batches.

    I used to love sriracha but now it's too sweet for me. They should make a variety with less sugar.

    Try sambal oelek. Less stuff that isn't awesome chilies.

    also realized a long time ago that even though i really do like the penny arcade comic (i post here, after all!), i actually can't relate all that much to mike and jerry as people

    they're sort of a world apart from me, in a lot of ways, and outside of nerdy hobbies i share little in common with them

    so something like PATV that follows around their lives and stuff, i'm just really not that interested in it.

    So what you're saying is you kind of suck and can't relate to awesome people who are amusing and entertaining?

    Dude, that's gotta suck.

    yessss

    yessss get defensive about something i'm mildly uninterested in and take that shit personally

    you are filling my power crystal

    Yes. Because there's no way that was just me giving you crap? It's clearly me getting defensive.

    Jesus tap dancing christ Pony.

    But no seriously? PATV isn't celebrity gossip. Not sure how you get that impression. There are a couple episoides that focus on Mike and Jerry and specific employees but the bulk of the episodes are more about the things going on like PAX/Charity dinner/ping-pong etc. and then of course the 4th panel episodes are just them bullshitting about various topics like the podcasts of old.

    i mean, there are ten millions of ways to be one-in-a-thousand abnormal

    which means that all of us are abnormal in ten thousand ways

    Yeah when he used it to cook with it was like poison. Which made me question using it, but I guess in small amounts it can be used, just again massive massive warnings about dilution.

    A friend had a bottle of pure capsaicin. It has a layer of oil on top because it evaporates in air. :P

    In crystallized form it's pretty damn dangerous to inhale.

    my fridge suffers from emptiness quite a bit

    there is a reason for this; I eat such a small amount of food that if I actually start filling it up with stuff to the point that it feels like I have stuff, then stuff starts going bad or unused. But I do frequently eat something akin to a sub for dinner, making my own tuna sandwiches for lunch, both things requiring little fridge space.

    I just realized I haven't gotten any deli pastrami in a long time, I sorely need to rectify this.
