    I don't want to buy another Windows license right now.

    I'd rather just use my PC if I had to install Windows.

    Yeah, you'd be shocked to find how much more refreshing a margarita is when it's not like 95% HFCS.

    I don't think Pony was saying they shouldn't exist. I think he was trying to illustrate how they can be problematic and allow small vocal minorities of extremists to hold more sway in a movement than is healthy.

    I've personally encountered the difficulties faced with identifying behaviors as psychological pathologies

    I was diagnosed with ASPD, which not only was a diagnosis of behavior but led to a classification of me as a person. It led to legal repercussions (I couldn't get a driver's license for years because of it) and it led to me allowing that diagnosis to define me as a person and I used it as a crutch to excuse some of my worst behaviors. It facilitated me burying emotional responses and reactions that would be contrary to the diagnosis and overlooking facts that would cause it to be questionable.

    Years later it was identified as incorrect and overturned. Had a pretty profound impact on my life, that.

    Currently I have a diagnosis of "Personality Disorder (Not Otherwise Specified)". This essentially says that my psychiatrist believes my personality is aberrant from the norm to the extent that he considers it a pathological disorder to be treated medically, but in a way that currently (as of the DSM IV) is not accurately classifiable in any one category.

    Which is pretty shitty, really.

    Will, I went to this old-fashioned 1920's speakeasy the other day for happy hour. The drinks were delicious. I had a Tom Collins, a mojito, a Moscow Mule (which I loved) and a margarita. They were all fresh and used delicious light ingredients. Nothing syrupy to be found.

    At the end, I was feeling a little bold and ordered a Pisco Sour. My friends were grossed out by the egg white, but I figured why not. In the end I really didn't enjoy it. Did I drink a bad one out of all those good drinks, or is Pisco really kind of gross?

    pisco is okay for what it is. it's basically unaged brandy and really similar to grappa or other eau de vies.

    as such, it's a little harsh and takes some getting used to. mixing it right takes a deft hand, and i still have a hard time mixing eau de vie drinks that don't have a sharp edge.

    also, egg white drinks are unusual to modern tastes. probably you should start with something a little easier to take, like a ramos gin fizz or something. they're going to be frothy and thick and this, coupled with the rawness of the pisco, might be offputting.

    also, the pisco sour is kind of a one-note drink. there's no bitters, no secondary ingredient, not much getting in the way of neutral spirits, sugar and lemon to mix it up.

    so basically, it's kind of a challenging drink i guess. i think they're good, but they're kind of an acquired taste in a lot of ways.

    Well, I actually don't frequent feminist communities directly. Though the places I do frequent tend to have a very large majority of participants self-describe as feminist.

    In other words, I get my feminism from hyper liberal areas, not feminist areas, if that makes sense. Which also leads to different types of safe spaces.

    DK, I never ran into that once living in Japan. Now you don't open gifts as you receive them. You open them after the people leave. That way if you dislike it or are disappointed they don't see it. Everything comes in gift bags, so many gift bags. Now for drinks though, you need to offer at least twice because the first time a Japanese person will refuse even if they are thirsty out of politeness and never say otherwise. So always offer a second time.

    Umm there a few, just google them (I'm at work so I can't really). Every time someone says Cobra (or whatever the malt liquor brand is) is a drink, so in the first five minutes you're already pretty deep. Double drinks for high kicks, drink for punches. You get the idea, it'll get you drunk.
