I've been the guy in this scenario a few times, and it definitely was option #2 for me. All it takes is a minute after she gets off to spend some time getting back into the mutual grove, usually with mutual touching to get that wind back in the ol' sails.

Anyone that says he escalated the situation didn't watch the video. He asked her if she was aware that she was not parked in a parking lane, and she said, "I literally don't give a fuck about anything you have to say." She escalated, not him.

I agree, that she's allowed to do or not do anything she wants in bed, and if she found someone that doesn't mind, that's great.

But how is this laudable? Because there are so many men out there that refuse to go down on women, most of whom do so because they think it's gross or they're selfish? Those are lame reasons to not go down on someone of either gender.

So, she can crow to the heavens that she's not sucking another dick, and I can think all I like that she's kind of a dick herself.

It's in short supply right now, but the Trader Joe's bourbon is better than it has any right to be for $15/bottle.

Here's how I phrased it, @1:

2/5 Seinfeld + 3/5 Girls = Broad City

@2 - You are demonstrating exactly the kind of thinking referenced in the post. If our public transit was better funded and people gave a shit, we'd have more buses running more routes, and not every bus would have to service every stop, because there would be others to do so.

It's almost like I wrote this to Dan while in a fugue state (minus the physical violence)...

Everyone commenting so far is correct. She needs to be in some serious therapy and he needs to get the fuck out. I agree that it /could/ be looks, but that it doesn't matter one whit.

Run, motherfucker. You'll be glad you did.

My cynicism dictates that I view this as cynicism itself. It's about winning, not about doing what's right.
Feb 24, 2014 stealingzen commented on Did Netflix and Comcast Just Kill the Internet?.
I see a lot of people saying there are problems with the article but no one clearly specifying why it's inaccurate.

Basically, Netflix was paying a third party to handle their traffic. This third party got almost all of the internet providers to play nice about giving Netflix more bandwidth when it was needed, but Comcast held out. Netflix has now cut out the third party and is sending their data directly to Comcast; there is no additional cost to have to put on the shoulders of the consumers.

However, this does set precedent that Netflix will deal with ISPs if they hold Netflix's bandwidth hostage, so other greedy corporations might try to start squeezing Netflix. Only time will tell.

Here's a great take on this I read this morning from Seattlish:…
