The Warren [chat]

The Warren Cup is a unique silver Roman skyphos (or drinking cup) featuring two representations of homoerotic sexual acts.

One side depicts a man (the active participant or erastes) engaging in anal sex with a young man (the catamite, eromenos, or passive participant), who lowers himself onto the erastes using a rope or support from the ceiling in roughly the modern sexual position of reverse cowgirl. Meanwhile a boy, perhaps a slave, watches surreptitiously from behind a door — the inferior status of a slave in Roman eyes would make him suitable to this role of voyeur.

The other side depicts the young man making love to the boy who is appears on the opposite side. Both scenes also include draped textiles in the background, as well as a kithara (lyre) in the former scene and auloi (pipes) in the latter. These, along with the careful delineation of ages and status and the wreaths worn by the youths, all suggest a cultured, elite, Hellenized setting with music and entertainment

It is named after its first modern owner, the collector and writer Edward Perry Warren and was acquired by the British Museum in 1999.

[wikipedia has the best descriptions :lol:]

    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.

    Mine was like a colorful, sugared treat. Impulsive and giddy but not that substantive. Something you may even regret later.

    This is like a whole wheat banana nut muffin. Not having the sanguine flavor of the other, but offering more in truth.

    People that put ketchup in the fridge.

    Why would I want to ruin my nice warm french fries with cold ketchup?

    Ketchup doesn't go bad. Go into a resturant, do you see fridges on the tables for all the ketchup? Go to McD's, grab a ketchup packet, did you open a fridge to get it? Is it cold?

    No. Quit putting Ketchup in the fridge you crazies.

    Tums sounds like an antacid, those are just calcium carbonate. And Advil is what Americans call paracetamol? Or asprin? It doesn't really matter. Mix away.

    The packets are likely heat treated and then they are pretty much hermetically sealed. Restaurants will go through much larger amounts, so it's less likely to go off.

    That said, tomato ketchup tends to be pretty loaded with preservatives, so it's probably fine. I wouldn't know though, I don't use the stuff.

    Ketchup does go bad. It doesn't go bad very fast, but in restaurants it's also used very fast. At home, that bottle you pull out every other week will be a new civilization in no time if you don't refrigerate it.

    Feral, have you ever seen files that show up on Windows 7 but not Windows XP?

    They're .pdfs on a CD, and if I copy them to the network with an XP computer, the 7 computers can see them, but they totally can't see them on the CD. They can, however, see the CD, and see some other .pdfs on the CD. And I have "show hidden files" enabled on all of the computers in question.

    Problem with car is depressingly expensive.

    In fairness it is not actually an electrical problem. It is a result of it having sat around not doing much for a fairly long time, which is also probably the reason for its low mileage. So I can live with that.
