Re: Can you knit?

I can do the stitches (and purl) but I lose count and therefore nothing good ever came from it.

Re: The Becky Thing

In my experience, "Becky" is generally used by black women to talk about problematic white woman behavior, though this might be because I follow/read more black women than black men. I think Sonic# has it pretty much nailed. I know women pretty along all of those "types" of Becky, though of course t...

Re: gender recognition

There's really no way to get around kids picking up societal gender norms, but what you can do is continually reinforce that things are socially constructed, continually change, and generally just bullshit. ;) Not in those words of course. ;) In terms of identity of "AM I a boy / girl", I think if t...

Re: How on earth do you keep track of your passwords???

I will say that making password requirements overly complex demonstrably makes things less secure since people do things like this: they just keep the same password and roll the number at the end... beats the point, doesn't it? Like there are actual white papers out there that talk about this type o...

Re: Help A new Friend On Blood Pressure Issue

I think also if you are in the US (maybe other places; I just don't know) you can go to a lot of pharmacies or other places to check your BP while you quit. I think quitting is a very personal process, one which I haven't undergone personally, but the people I've seen go through find it a lot easier...

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I think that's why this one was so fun for so many people in the U.S. is that it wasn't really *that* far for a lot of people here (in the U.S.). Though to be sure there still is an element of privilege involved in being able to take a couple days off for it. I mean the last one that was even remote...

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Pets won't bother. People are being weird about that. Kids, though, will follow what others are doing, so I would be concerned about that. We made a mask with the solar glasses in for the toddler with us, I think it will be cool and fun way to keep him wearing them and safe. PLEASE LET THE WEATHER C...

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

I think some parks are going to be giving them out too, so check with your local places! Libraries too!

If you're at home or taking a car somewhere, a colander with round holes also makes a great thing to project onto the ground with. :)

I am concerned the weather is going to be crap. >.<

Re: How on earth do you keep track of your passwords???

Honestly I have a method but the sites always break it so I often lock myself out anyway. I used the StaplerHorse thing for a while, I should go back to that. What irritates me most though is I forget all the things like what special characters are allowed/not allowed/oh and this site has to be 8 ch...

Timing is always a weird thing and so personal. But I bet it'll still be ticking by then. One thing I will say is that a lot of people have children that late so you're not alone at all! I have a friend who froze eggs, from my hazy memory I think she said it is actually not that bad money wise? I co...
