    Oh by the way, kids, take note here. I told my co-workers I determined my level of teasing on how much sex I thought they were having. If I thought someone was getting laid erryday I would tease them more and I'd be nice to people whose love life is best described by America's Horse With No Name.

    It works out perfectly: the people I tease are happy because they know I think they have loads of sex and the people I don't tease are glad I'm nice to them.

    Maybe it works the other way around, and the people that you tease get laid more because of it.

    He should have sex with the coworkers that he thinks isn't having sex and deny sex with the coworkers that he thinks are having a lot of sex to make the workplace more egalitarian.

    I'm going to put this to the test on Monday at my own job and will call it the New Workplace Equality Policy. Everyone will have to sign up with how much sex they are currently having. The people who are having no or little sex will have to make up for it by having sex with me to make the workplace more equal.

    It's progressive.

    the only area of social norms in which i have encountered variable is in chivalry (men waiting on women). Every other area has pretty standard rules where the more polite option is abundantly clear, and the only possible discussion would be how big a deal it is if someone does the less polite thing out of laziness or carelessness.

    Chivalry is confusing. I am personally very traditional and tend to hold doors for women, but I am also a feminist and frankly, chivalry and feminism are kind of opposed. To compensate for it, I try to hold the door for just about everyone. But then I don't want to be subservient to everyone in society, so to balance that out I'll slam doors on children and the elderly.

    Hinduism, I think. My brain's not working right, but generally your right hand is for eating and would become unclean and your other hand is unclean so you don't touch people with it, or something.

    One of those practices that started way back when for really quite good reasons and has become a religious thing that is still followed.

    EDIT: or maybe it is Muslim? God, my brain doesn't know what it's doing today.

    I think that's the wrong way to explain it, but Indians tend to greet each other with their palms held together under their chin. I guess it's more a cultural/religious thing than it has anything to do with their hands not being clean. I know there's some fundie Muslims over here who refuse to shake hands with women.

    Most dudes I met in India I just shook hands with, I think they thought it was nice to do things the Western way. I didn't meet a lot of overly religious people, though. Haven't shook hands with a single female, mind.

    Air juggling in MvC3 is actually pretty easy and only becomes difficult if you are mashing buttons.

    And I'm not saying that like a douche, I'm NOT great a the game by any stretch.

    If you hold up after you hit the S button you automatically follow the character into the air. From there, the window isn't huge, but same rules apply on the ground in terms of connecting. light -> medium -> hard is going to connect 9 times out of 10, or medium -> medium -> hard. Then you just hit S again to knock them back to the ground.

    Unless you are talking about like, 20 hit air juggles, which yeah, fuck that. It's going to take time.

    There will inevitably be people that swear the series is dead, dead, to them because there is a thirteenth Doctor.

    Then they will purchase the DVD box set so that they can watch it with the appropriate degree of disdain.

    The fine will be $100 and court costs amount to $278. Bramblett said he’s in contact with Nelson’s lawyer.
