Welcome to the internet...?

I'll see it because it seems to be Woody Allen's take on A Streetcar Named Desire, which is intriguing in a way a totally original Woody Allen film might not be.

Phalloplasty also has an extremely high rate of complications, many of which lead to the removal of the misshapen flesh tube some irresponsible surgeon tried to pass off as a legitimate attempt to recreate a phallus. Transmen (and all other men who live without penises) deserve better.

@8, it seems that @4's reference predates 2001: A Space Odessey. The HAL scene references _that_ which I didn't know before and is awesome trivia. I think you were right about the cat vid actually referencing 2001 though, since they are trying to turn HAL off in that scene.

How easy is it to source a vomit bag in the midst of getting wasted at the block party?
Jul 20, 2011 meggers commented on So I'm on Spotify.
I've been using Grooveshark for a while and so far the only advantage I've found in Spotify is the integration of my local music into search results (which I like) and possibly a larger, more dependable music catalog. I'd like to try the ipod-synching feature because I loathe iTunes. I dunno. I was initially really excited that Spotify found music from a couple of small local bands, but then I realized it was pulling the tracks from my hard drive.

I'm not a big fan of the social-integration element either, but I've enjoyed using Grooveshark to share playlists with friends. Not sure yet if that's possible with Spotify, but if so I'll definitely use it.

In defense of Pandora, I've found quite a lot of new music through it. That won't happen if I'm only playing stuff I already know.

@73, you don't have to be affiliated with a high school to take the SAT or ACT. If you kick the shit out of those tests and submit exemplary writing samples, college isn't a problem.

I was primarily "unschooled" and I earned an AA at age 15 and am currently on fellowship in a PhD program, so...there's that.

I'm sure there's quite a lot of variation in what the process looks like, but "unschooled" is probably a misleading term in most cases.
