Feb 13, 2015 pastanaut commented on He Could’ve Been a Rich Fashion Photographer, but Instead He Became a Monk with a Camera.
The text of the article says that he's been a monk for 30 years. That jibes with Wikipedia which says that he became a monk in 1985. However the caption of the picture says that he became a monk in 1972. He might have become a Buddhist in 1972, but he didn't become a monk until much later.

If nothing else this is a very good illustration of why everyone should get vaccinated: Because not everyone is going to have an immune response. And because I don't drink, I'm not going to be as protected as other people.

Now even old-timey racists know they don't own their girlfriend's bodies so... progress?

@Hanoumatoi: The other images are either from stock photos or stolen from peoples' profiles on social networking sites. I did a Google image search and found that both women's pictures were used on other scammy sites. I repeated the search on other images and while most of them were stock photos, at least one of them was another famous person who has not been in college for a long time.

Wait, there is another (semi) famous person pictured here! Apparently Joe Rospars, co-founder of Blue State Digital and Obama's principal digital strategist for both presidential campaigns needed help with his LSATs.

Ohh, there's a link to chat! I wonder if it's a chatbot or a person. I'm tempted to tell it/them that they have linked to pics of at least three famous people. It's probably not true, but how long will they work on figuring it out?
Mar 14, 2014 pastanaut commented on Polyamory Was Definitely the Problem.
The whole thing reads like fiction. I don't seriously believe that it is fact. And the word polyamory in the title was probably an editorial afterthought as clickbait for an excerpt from an unpublished work. Of fiction.

Encourage her to see her doctor. She's probably in perimenopause. Even if hormone therapy doesn't work to improve her libido, she's got nothing to lose by talking to her doctor, and plenty to gain.

I don't think that lying about going elsewhere for sex is the way to go though. It seems like she isn't that interested in the relationship if she's so cold about sex. There is more to this than meets the eye for sure. Couples counselling could get them to a place where either he can honestly seek sex elsewhere, or they can break up without him having to (in her eyes) take all the blame for being a cheater.

I thought it was interesting that Bryce seemed so much smarter than his brother. I wonder if that was just my perception because Corey spent most of his screen time saying ignorant things, or if there is a measurable difference. In turn, that makes me wonder if Bryce's intelligence was raised by the challenges of being gay in that community, or if the differences are just a coincidence.

I strongly believe that children who get to experience other countries and other cultures make better adults. They are more likely to understand the complexities of poverty. They are more likely to be open to hiring, befriending, and marrying people of other colors, cultures, and backgrounds. Keep adventuring, with or without your kids.
