commented on Ted: Like a More Ribald ALF
@13 No, you're not. Bridesmaids was not a great comedy. It was an okay comedy that we are required to think is great COZ WOMEN DID IT proving that they don't need our validation or something.
Personally, I think it's okay to say something was just okay without disparaging the funny and talented women who were involved in it. But that's just me.

@10 It's a Microsoft product being covered on Slog, you're not supposed to actually learn any "information" or "facts" about it, you're just supposed to snark about how awful it is using comparison points from 5 years ago! Whatever you do, don't ever attempt to use or research a Microsoft product before dismissing it.
Silly reader, Slog is for Apple.

@10: It's not that arbitrary. "Sexual intercourse", as you put it, isn't just thing A in slot B. You can look the word intercourse up; the dictionary defines it as physical sexual contact between two people that involves the genitalia of at least one person. The same super handy book defines a virgin as someone who has not had sexual intercourse*.
Ergo, if you had anal, you're not a virgin. It's not arbitrary at all, it's totally bitrary. (although now I'm worried that I lost my v-card** after my first handjob and now I'm going to hell)
*It also defines virgin as an unmarried woman, so do with that what you will.
**Yeah, I said v-card, fuck off.

commented on Who Should Seattleites Be Rooting for in the NBA Finals?
Support the team who broke a city's heart with a series of increasingly obvious lies, and now pour money into anti-gay legislation and stand for everything I despise?
Or support the team with some superstars who kind of annoy me, but are public supporters of gay rights and other good things?
Man, tough call!

@6 fine. But to be fair, let's say everyone ignores them, then they show up. Now you've got a perfectly nice lady's funeral being picketed by these fucks, with no one there to shield the mourners from this added grief.
Play it down, by all means, but play up the counter protest and let that be your lead. As @8 said, it's a win-win.
