Re: what would you do with a wildebeest?

I'd ask it "Do most people call you wildebeest, or gnu? And which would you rather go by? Because, to be honest, I don;t think I've ever used the word 'wildebeest'" And, of course, the wildebeest responds 'cause this is my fantasy.

Re: Gender and racial biases in professor's newsvideo

I came across the video from a link unrelated to this post and it took me a few moments after seeing it to make the connection to this post. I did not think "nanny". I thought Mom. And I did not think "fear"; I thought, amused, "I know you're trying to be inconspicuous, but ...

Drink idea: making something green or blue and using glowsticks as cocktail swizzle sticks. (The mixed drink of choice in this case involved blue curaçao and vodka soaked in hot chili pepper.)
