Re: Unsolicited relationship advice

Giving "favors" could very well cause arousal though, and that extra blood flow and genital swelling would compound lingering post delivery pains. It's also so easy to get touched out with a baby/young kid around. Especially when merely months have passed and the baby is completely depende...

Re: What career should you have?

I had a difficult time deciding on answers for the quiz. The first time, I got electrical engineer, and a bunch of stuff I'm certain I would hate/have no interest in/be terrible at such as advising other people. I took it again and got botonist. As it is, I have an interview on Monday or Tuesday (wh...

Re: Summer Solstice

I must have lost my vegan membership, no idea solstice was a thing for us weirdos. Around here, everyone disappears into the countryside for midsummer. Most businesses are closed and the cities are eerily empty. So you still might not get that reservation. I have no idea if restaurants are places th...

Re: What does your ideal bedroom look like?

I think my ideal bedroom changes depending on the season. Right now, coming up on midsummer, I crave darkness. I want dark walls, shades, and curtains. In the winter I need something that gets me out of bed. The only constant is a low bed, sparse furniture, and a couple self calming objects. I suppo...

Re: what do you dislike about children?

They're perfect for philosophical experimentation, but can't be used that way for ethical reasons. They have to be taught things like empathy and compassion. So they hit and kick and bite and scream and say mean things, and I'm expected to act like an adult because I am one. When interacting with th...

Re: Workplace seating arrangements - WWYD?

I saw the question and immediately looked at the diagram and thought 2, before I even saw the F and M notations. Then I definitely thought 2, wanting to submerse the new hire in the midst of coworkers instead of on the end of the bench to be overlooked, not letting the other co-workers view her as p...

Re: Another baby stars

Congratulations for when you're excited about the pregnancy, and good luck for all the time. I was depressed while pregnant and congratulations always rubbed me the wrong way. It's really cool that your daughter's excited, maybe it will turn out to be contagious excitement.

how do you travel?

How do you travel with your kids? We recently went on a trip mostly traveling by car and the kid (three years old) was awesome. We're currently planning a trans-Atlantic trip. The last time we made that trip, two years ago, it was miserable, presumably for everyone on the plane. I'm hoping, that aft...

Re: Blue Foods?

^My uncle used to have Ameraucanas (chickens that lay colored eggs)! I don't really think of them as blue food though, since I don't know anyone who eats the blue part.

And Sonic, come to Finland in the later summer/early fall. I'll take you to a bilberry patch and you will be happy.

Re: Blue Foods?

Bilberries, bogberries, dewberries, and crowberries can have instances of blue, generally colored similarly to blueberries. There's also juniper berries, but it's a spice or used in tea, and the color when you eat them isn't so noticeable. There are bellflowers, but again the color range can go towa...

Re: What major life experience changed you?

Although major life experiences probably contributed, I put most major changes in who I am down to small occurrences that pushed me over the edge. For instance, reading a book and finally having something "click", although life changing, isn't a major life experience.
