@27: Sometimes, you get the whole story, depending on the feed. It also contains all of the blogs and webcomics I follow, so it's nice to see everything show up in the same place. Sorry, but it just has so much more functionality than Twitter. You can get more than 240 characters and more than one picture! Wow!

It just reinforces my view that Twitter is pretty fucking stupid. (I get my news primarily through an RSS feed these days. Headlines can be more than 240 characters, and accompanying text is normal.)

I assume a straight person unless otherwise stated or inferred for two reasons: 1) Most people are straight and 2) straight people don't tend to mention their sexuality mostly because of (1).

It popped up on DailyKos yesterday as well. I don't remember if it made front page, but the most prominent transgendered person on the site (rseven) had a recommended diary on the subject.

Yeah, that's one thing I think when I hear about affairs: who has time for that? I mean, when I'm not at work, my wife knows where I am, and when I'm at work, I'm at work.

Nah, the ones I knew and know just thought that if you teach good morals enough, then there wouldn't be the teen pregnancy. Seriously, they're decent people in that they don't want teens being pregnant. They're just deluded into thinking that their scriptures totally jive with reality and modernity.

Yeah, I don't think that conservatives are conspiring to get girls pregnant. I grew up around religious conservatives, and generally, they honestly believe that unmarried young people need to stay abstinent and that offering birth control and birth control information will encourage them to stray. The thinking is that teen pregnancy should act as a disincentive to underage sex and that birth control for unmarried kids will condone unmarried sex.

It's stupid and unhelpful, but it's not a conspiracy. After all, pregnant teens are evidence of moral failure, and that hurts Jesus (since He bears our sins.) We have to reject that thinking, of course, but you can't ascribe malice where it doesn't really exist. It just makes your own position seem crazed and unreasonable.

We might not have known it scientifically. It is interesting that the horniness issue relates more to a threshold of what's sexy than any sort of responsiveness degree.

That really seems like something you can ratchet up over time. Maybe he can't spank hard enough without feeling disturbed now, but maybe he can get halfway there now and eventually get the heavier spank going in the future.

@3: My wife and I both agree that being able to blame each other for things when in the presence of other parties is rather useful. It's most useful when you're only dealing with customer service or something, but you can slide yourself past unnecessary obstacles with the trick on occasion.
