what are you giving for gifts?

what are you giving for gifts?

I usually choose gifts according to person's fav hobbies, well it's almost always the best choice :) For my friends for example I get books, cosmetics, cool clothes, accessories, jewerly, good coffee or tea, tasty chocolate, music CDs, comics, anime figures and wooden models, various art stuff like pencils and sketchbooks, also not too expensive gadgets sometimes. Tickets for concerts, art exhibitions, theatre and musicals are unreal gifts too, personally I adore to get them for holidays too! :) And experience gifts is a smashing thing too, they provide a possibility to get a new unsual experience in your life like Japanese tea ceremony, diving, various art masterclasses etc. The last ones are very appreciated by other people :)

what are you reading?

I just finished The Perfect Order of Things by David Gilmour and it was pretty bad. The writing was decent but the main character was such a horrendous example of straight white man is oblivious that I couldn't take it seriously. by Rayne in Mixed Media

Noisy Hotel Room

I was sleeping in a t shirt, which is about as naked as I'm comfortable sleeping. Had a bit of an easier time sleeping Sunday and Monday, I think partially because there were fewer people revving engines and otherwise using the gas station across the street. I'm pretty excited to be back in my own room, although my upstairs neighbors also have wood floors and are horribly loud so that kind of sucks. by Bork in Ranting

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

Why did kids make fun of you?

I was picked on for:

- Being class nerd, though this eventually became a badge of honor.

- Having buck teeth. Braces took care of that.

- Being short.

- Mispronouncing a word. It stuck. But the main instigator was a boy I liked, so I actually didn't mind that bit of attention.

- Constantly falling. I got nothing for this one. I did statistically trip and/or take tumbles more than average, often in front of crowds. This persisted through high school.

harvey weinstein

so many men with almost no power act like a wannabe weinstein from my experience. it's not surprising a massively powerful guy like him acts like an abusive, repulsive pig. it's hilarious the fake good guys matt damon etc. are coming out now to support women when they've been shitting on them in public and private for all of their shitty careers.

fuck louis ck, weinstein, kevin spacey, and fuck all of the abusive, shit circles esp in comedy that uphold oppression while falsely parading as being socially aware.

Ugh thank you! I keep coming across people who are really proud of themselves for not having a microwave. I think it's a case of not really understanding the science but having a vague sense of unatural = bad. by Enigma in Science & Technology

New Job!

Headphones are the best, I got some nice big ones to block out my (now former) officemate who I love and is a great person but FFSshutupalready

anyway. Is there anyone else in your group that you can get some other things to do? If your boss is leaving you'd think they'd be like "here's a bunch of stuff to do while I'm gone"

gender recognition

You can continue discussing with him the difference of a boy and a girl. Have him socialize too with the same gender. There's nothing wrong if you have go with opposite sex as long as he understands what/who he is.

So do you feel hanging out with the opposite gender at a young age can confuse a person's gender identity?

do you like beans?

I do. Except for black-eyed peas, they just taste weird to me. Giant butter beans with chorizo or sausage and onions in a tomato-wine sauce... mmmm. I think I'm making that tonight. Thanks, spacebot, for the inspiration. by DarkOne in Random
