    It'd be some name associated with Chavs

    It might just be Chavs

    Chav is basically a slur against poor white people, so no.

    Has anyone considered moving all the heat from the warm places to the cold places and evening it out?

    I say we give Elon Musk a trillion dollars to get started on this right away.

    The average air temperature at earth’s surface is 14°C / 57°F. This is ok but maybe we can do slightly better. Like, omit antarctica from the mixing and get it up a little higher.

    Elon's grand vision is without flaw you Luddite.

    weird that they have parts that respond very specifically to high estrogen concentrations.

    Like I get why, since it's just some tissue that could've been something else if the differentiation went a different way, but it's still strange a f

    Wait did this this discussion actually go somewhere yesterday? I was confused and fascinated but I missed out on the conclusion.

    They have different mouthfeel was the conclusion :P

    What I'm referring to is that the raphe (ridge on the bottom that basically runs from the glans to the anus) darkens when the hormone concentration has a lot of estrogen. You can see sort of the same thing in pregnant women, who sometimes have a dark line on their lower abdomen (I.. think that's where it is). Anyway, it gets a fair bit darker than it usually is, and darker than surrounding tissue, leading to an actual visual distinction between men's and trans girls' genitals, which is pretty cool!

    I was going to say like Oliver or Robin.

    Oliver carries with it no connotations except slight poshness and the name Robin is a glorious moniker for winners and gorgeous people of all genders.

    I dunno. It kind of conjures up a tanned, stupid, intimidating but not overly muscled bully in a high school drama. Someone with boundless self-confidence and a future in dealing roofies.

    I dunno if there's a precise equivalent over here. For a start, they probably aren't tanned. And for another most stereotypes would have to have a strong class element.

    Chad wears a polo most of the time and his family is upper middle class or just plain upper class. He went to a private boarding school for two years of high school but got kicked out for selling chewing tobacco to 14 year olds. Now he attends the most prestigious engineering school his parents could donate his way into.

    Yeah I dunno if we have an equivalent. Maybe a Sebastian that demands everyone call him 'Seb'.

    There is a fantasy series with a lot of it's magic based on music called Symphony of Ages. Though it's pretty much just in service of going between sexual encounters, 13 year old me found it very educational.

    I am kind of grossed out in general by the use of shorthand like Chad to demean a person for what is basically normal human boringness or having a certain lifestyle.

    It is like looking at a person who likes something considered stereotypically boring middle class and using that as shorthand to make fun of them as if liking that boring stuff is worthy of mocking them instead of the actually terrible shit they do.

    DK you mentioned a while ago that one of the big mistakes you made in your early coding career was ignoring established design patterns. I've been idly looking into design patterns and such (while... on my phone walking to my car). They aren't a thing I'm going to immediately know when to use when hobby coding, I don't think. Did you learn them via being forced to at work, or was there a specific set of exercises or things you studied to figure out what was out there and when to use it?

    But it's more about calling out the unearned confidence and societal blindness of an athletic and good looking upper class straight white male.

    I am almost certainly a Chad to someone in this world.

    I think the thing that really drills a design pattern into your head is having a real-world problem where that design pattern is the correct solution.

    There’s no real substitute for seeing it work in action applied to a specific problem.

    So I just went to hospital to get the blood work done that I was meant to have done about a week ago before I passed out

    Well, after five (!) attempts to find a vein without any luck, they sent me to a dedicated blood testing unit

    And fucking hell, I think I met some kind of angel of phlebotomy there

    The first staff member I saw heard my case, straight up said "I'm not experienced enough for this" and made me wait for a bit

    And then this stunningly gorgeous blonde nurse walks up to me, practically tells me to shut up when I try to explain that I might be difficult to draw blood from, jabs me and takes my blood before I even knew it had happened

    I went from feeling like a pin cushion to feeling like my blood has been fucking stolen and I'm not even mad

    Other than jokes on the internet no one stops dead in their tracks when meeting a chad and asks "so when does your collar pop?" because that's foolish and silly to think like that.

    Names that carry stereotypical connotations here are probably ones like Wayne or Sharon, posher names like Miles, ridiculously posh names like, I dunno, Annunziata or nicknames that obviously stem from public school like Squiffy, Pimms or Muffin-Rack.

    I took a course that forced me to learn them, basically. And then years later I realized I was badly reinventing many of them in my personal projects so I went back and reviewed some of it and found them extraordinarily helpful.

    Things like object pools, singletons, decorators, iterators, and observers were patterns I ended up coming to on my own, then going to the text book and reading more formal, airtight versions of them.

    I believe this was the textbook: https://www.amazon.com/Design-Patterns-Elements-Reusable-Object-Oriented/dp/0201633612

    They're fun! Lots of the Eternal Champion books are good reads. They're short, each one literally brimming with invention that would last a lesser writer for a five book saga, have weird heroes who are often half-whacked out on drugs or vampiric swords, and generally fight against stale conventions in fantasy.
