Re: How do you seduce people?

I dance like I don't care how I look.
I start conversations that other people are interested in returning.
I proposition after we've learned some about each other and feel reasonably safe.

Re: What's your favorite poem?

At one point I convinced myself I disliked Edgar Allen Poe. It was for some superficial reason - disliking the emo fanculture around him. He's great. It's hard for me to pick one because there are so many kinds of poems. So I'll stick to three, one long narrative poem, one lyrical poem, and one medi...

Re: Leelah Alcorn's situation wouldn't have gotten better. (Trigger Warning)

It's worth noting that "it gets better" earned these kinds of critiques at the time it went viral in 2010. It was fine - if you were white, male, and well-resourced like Dan Savage: Many, however, have been struck with how these deaths have been made to serve the purpose of highlighting an exception...

Re: do you know how an engine works?

So an engine converts some form of energy into mechanical force, right? A steam engine uses steam pressure to move a thing, a combustion engine uses gasoline that is injected and combusted in a cylinder in order to move a piston, and so on? On a good day I can explain how a car engine works, and som...

Re: What's your favorite planet?

Aurora, or the various focal planets depicted orbiting the star Tau Ceti in sci-fi. It's one of those stars that is close enough to imagine reaching and colonizing, and so commonly ends up being a first-step system to galactic civilization, as Isaac Asimov showed in The Caves of Steel . Le Guin set ...

Re: When does one become "a local"?

I view being a local as all about social credibility. It's not about being in a place for an absolute period of time, being born there, or knowing the difference between Space Kroger, Sketch Kroger, and Murder Kroger. All of those are qualifications people use to pass as local. So I'd say if you can...

Re: What games have you played lately?

Besides periodic Sea of Thieves, I've returned to Crusader Kings 2. The gist is that I play a medieval noble who has to perpetuate their dynasty through heirs and secure their territory. Meanwhile, Sims-like, lots of events happen that create a fun narrative experience. For example, I became a queen...

I'm right handed. That said, I find it silly that people test for handedness in films by throwing objects at them. If someone did that to me I'd catch with my left hand, because I did that in baseball and other sports.
