Ok... So I should read the second and third books then? Maybe I will.

Ok, sooo I'm female (and bi) and naive about gay sex but I totally get where Dan is going here.

I mean, hostess cupcakes are chocolate with cream filling and icing on top, owned by a company with products like twinkles and ding-dongs. If banna's post didn't get you there, I'm not sure what will.

Yeah... If i could fire someone who bitches about customers and co workers and complains of constant stomach aches and head aches I would fire them, and I wouldn't care whether they were feminine, or masculine, or "effeminate".
Jun 26 wingedkat commented on About the Word "Tranny".
Insults come in so many different packages. Banning words or making less informed people feel bad for using them isn't terribly helpful.

The "reclamation" of negative words as positive makes more sense to me than the censorship of words commonly used as much in ignorance as malice. There's even a few moments of occasional satisfaction when twisting an intended insult into a compliment.

I do attempt to follow the most current WP rules as best I can, usually just by not making any assumptions... but sometimes I fail spectacularly despite my best efforts.

I've felt a bit uneasy about the word police since I first became aware of them back in the 90s. The "reclamation" of negative words as positive makes more sense to me than the censorship of words commonly used as much in ignorance as malice. There's even a few moments of occasional satisfaction when twisting an intended insult into a compliment.

The bicycle infographic has an odd idea of "asthetics". I wonder how they ranked everything.
Mar 3 wingedkat commented on Elliott Bay Books Owner Says $15 Minimum Wage Could Be "Possibly Fatal".
What about making a minimum wage which is some percentage of business profit, or revenue? How about tying the minimum wage to a combination of profit and CEO pay?

I want to improve all workers pay, but the real problem is with the companies posting record profits with workers on food stamps.

Spoilers on the dust-jacket are preferable to completely misleading dust jackets. I hate it when the description on the jacket is not the book inside.

EricaP, @8 what do you mean?
