Beautiful, Bored, and Head: Here's a prime example of "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" offered by an English professor from the University of Phoenix: The professor told his class one day: Today we will ex- periment with a new form called the tandem story The process is simple. Each person will pair off with the person sitting to his or her immediate right. As home- work tonight, one of you will write the first paragraph of a short story. You will e-mail your partner that para- graph and send another copy to me. The partner will read the first paragraph and then add another para- graph to the story and send it back, also sending an- other copy to me. The first person will then add a third paragraph, and so on back-and-forth. Remember to re-read what has been written each time in order to keep the story coherent. There is to be ab- solutely NO talking outside of the e-mails and any- thing you wish to say must be written in the e-mail. The story is over when both agree a con- clusion has been reached." The following was actually turned in by two of his English students: Rebecca and Gary THE STORY: (first paragraph by Rebecca) At first, Laurie couldn't decide which kind of tea she wanted. The chamomile, which used to be her favorite for lazy evenings at home, now reminded her too much of Carl, who once said, in happier times, that he liked chamomile. But she felt she must now, at all costs, keep her mind off Carl. His possessiveness was suffocating, and if she thought about him too much her asthma started acting up again. So chamomile was out of the second paragraph by Gary) Meanwhile, Advance Sergeant Carl Harris, leader of the attack squadron now in orbit over Skylon 4, had more important things to think about than the neuroses of an air-headed asthmatic bimbo named Laurie with whom he had spent one sweaty night over a year ago. "A.S. Harris to Geostation 17," he said into his transgalactic communicator. " Polar orbit established. No sign of resistance so far..." But before he could sign off a bluish particle beam flashed out of nowhere and blasted a hole through his ship's cargo bay. The jolt from the direct hit sent him flying out of his seat and across the ####pit. (Rebecca) He bumped his head and died almost immediately, but not before he felt one last pang of regret for psychically brutalizing the one woman who had ever had feelings for him. Soon afterwards, Earth stopped its pointless hostilities towards the peace ful farmers of Skylon 4. "Congress Passes Law Per- manently Abolishing War and Space Travel," Laurie read in her newspaper one morning. The news si- multaneously excited her and bored her. She stared out the window, dreaming of her youth, when the days had passed unhurriedly and care- free, with no newspaper to read, no television to distract her from her sense of innocent wonder at all the beautiful things around her. "Why must one lose one's innocence to become a woman?" she pondered wistfully Gary) Little did she know, but she had less than 10 sec- onds to live. Thousands of miles above the city, the Anu'udrian mothership launched the first of its lithium fusion missiles. The dimwitted wimpy peaceniks who pushed the Unilateral Aerospace disarmament Treaty through the congress had left Earth a defenseless target for the hostile alien em- pires who were determined to destroy the human race. Within two hours after the passage of the treaty the Anu'udrian ships were on course for Earth, carrying enough firepower to pulverize the With no one to stop them, they swiftly initiated their diabolical plan. The lithium fusion missile en- tered the atmosphere unimpeded. The President, in his top-secret mobile submarine headquarters on the ocean floor off the coast of Guam, felt the inconceivably massive explosion, which vaporized poor, stupid Laurie. (Rebecca) This is absurd. I refuse to continue this mockery of literature. My writing partner is a violent, chauvin- istic semi-literate adolescent. Gary) Yeah? Well, my writing partner is a self-centered tedious neurotic whose attempts at writing are the literary equivalent of Valium. Oh, shall I have chamomile tea? Or shall I have some other sort of F-KING TEA??? Oh no, what am I to do? I'm such an air headed bimbo who reads too many Danielle Steele novels!" Gary) B*tch. (Rebecca) F K YOU-YOU NEANDERTHALI In your dreams, Ho. Go drink some tea. A+ Ireally liked this one. epicjohndoe: A Very Good Example Of ‘Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus’

Advice, Bored, and Children: ,111 88%0 12:05 PM Forums Dear Dish-lt > Boyfriend and Girlfriend Issues "Sabie's Relationship Guide 1 1 2 3 45 6 7 89 12 13 Posted about 11 years ago Saabe Posts: 186 First and foremost I must give credit to Void, not that the ideas in here are his, but that the guide itself is inspired by his. I started writing this a just a guide that l'd post up on Kidzworld, and let everyone there use it once l had left the site, and since I'm pretty much leaving, here it is: 簝 .111 85% 12:20 PM ou may not know, since my topic go deleted, for the second time now, but I've been doing advice here for almost two years. And thus far have been the only person to keep a relationship advice thread running that long. Unfortunately during the cleaning, it was erased, before I got past 50 pages, and the second time a Spamme.r caused the board to glitch so my topic had to be erased after it reached 82 pages. So l decided Imight as well put up a love guide. I will try to keep each "chapter" as short as possible, so as not to bore you, while putting in enough info to get you through if you're dealing with that topic. / would also like to note that credit to the basis of this Guide goes to all who posted questions in either of my threads, and StarF, because this is a little less than a copy of his Guide to Kidzworld Please remember this is my opinion and the advice here may not help in every case, but it's a good place to start, andI've had plenty of experience and success when giving advice. I am not a professional. yet. durnesque-esque: I’m crying of laughter and embarrassment. I was bored googling this morning and on a whim decided to see if the dating guide I wrote as a pretentious teenager was still floating around and it fucking is! 11+ years later and it is STILL a pinned topic in the relationship forum on Kidzworld. To set the scene: at age 14, having held hands with a cute Austrailian boy whilst at summer camp for my dad’s car company, I decided I was well versed enough in the art of love to start a teenage romance column: Dear Sabie (short for Sarahbeth which is another story all together). So I did! Now because I was thoughtful and could compose coherent sentences, my Dear Sabie forum grew in popularity (omg, 50 pages of me telling people things! Omg another 80 pages of me telling people things!). Or maybe I was actually good at it, I dunno. But I got it into my 16 year old head that I wanted a legacy. Being a forum for children, there was an age limit, so I had to work quickly. I spent a summer writing a romance guide for the website that I would post before I got kicked off due to the age restriction. But I had bigger plans, the post would be just the beginning. I was going to write a BOOK! And it would be published and I would be famous for giving EXCELLENT dating advice at such a tender age! I posted, made my grand farewells, and low and behold I convinced the forum moderators to pin it to the top of the board because it was so *wonderful.* And there it sits! I can’t believe they have allowed that relic to remain pinned to the forum. If you ever wanted a time capsul of what a sanctimonious and self-important teenager looks like, have a read! I’m so proud and so embarrassed. (http://www.kidzworld.com/forums/bf-gf-issues/t/15935-sabies-relationship-guide) P.S. if Void is out there somewhere and sees this: hey friend!

It’s upset bc the cage it liked is gone, but the cage was too small for it so it needs to be replaced. The bird is fine. Thank you for explaining that! I’ve been wondering about this video. That bird was livid! @arciifer is so incredibly wrong about the behavior here I can barely form coherent thoughts to explain how and why, it’s just 100% wrong. It is absolutely a myth that “you need to show the bird you’ve destroyed it so it will accept the  new one” or that the bird is angry at all; their whole comment shows a 100% lack of understanding about parrot behavior. I don’t know what facts-I-just-made-up blog that came from, but it’s laughably untrue.  You don’t need to destroy a parrot’s previous cage to ‘show’ it that it’s gone, you could just do what pretty  much every other parrot owner does if they need to replace a cage: Either sell it or give it away if it’s a safe cage and still in good condition, or throw it away. You don’t have to ‘show the bird’, that’s completely and utterly absurd to think that. That cockatoo isn’t “livid” either, it’s having fun and joining in the noise party; that particular bird just happens to have been taught to swear by previous owners and is just yelling along with the noise and having a great time. Our parrot’s last owners taught him to swear and, though he mostly doesn’t anymore, if he gets SUPER excited, he’ll start dropping f-bombs in his excitement; it doesn’t mean he’s “livid”, it  means he’s excited. See, the thing about parrots, and especially cockatoos: They LOVE a good noisy, banging, bell ringing, clanging, screaming, lots of movement and LOUDNESS party and everything about that ‘too’s body language says, “THIS IS AN AMAZING LOUD PARTY I WILL JOIN!” So….is the guy in the vid just trashing a crappy cage to have a good time with his parrot (because who wouldn’t to have a healthy screaming match and noise party with their beloved parrot) and posting it on line because it’s a thing that bird owners do or was he promoting the myth that the bird has to see the cage destroyed and get angry to move on? I can’t really tell what’s going on- I don’t speak bird or bird owner.  I mean, if it’s a guy and his bird having a good noisy fun screaming match time and that’s just what some bird owners do to have fun with their birds- great. I promote this level of pet bonding. Fantastic happy, healthy bird moment. This is also why I will never own a bird.  The guy is destroying the shitty round cage because round cages are bad for all birds (lack of corners makes them feel constantly exposed and stressed), he’s doing it on camera and with the cockatoo likely just for the fun factor and because birds like to be included in safe flock activities, which smashing this piece of shit cage is. It’s noisy, it’s not dangerous, it’s full of movement, it’s fun for the cockatoo. Some random dingus on Tumblr made up the nonsense about “needing to show the bird” and the rest of you non-Google using people went along with it.

Anaconda, Belgium, and Lol: 'All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped Source: Chatham House, https://www.chathamhouse.org/expert/comment/what-do-europeans-think-about-muslim-immigration 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 Total Belgium Germany GreeceSpin FranceayraUK ungary Poland AgreeNeither agree nor disagree Disagree aribelli: c-bassmeow: aribelli: c-bassmeow: Most Europeans agree with a Muslim ban with Spain and the U.K. being the most tolerant. https://www.chathamhouse.org/expert/comment/what-do-europeans-think-about-muslim-immigration The rise of right wing nationalism is not just an isolated US phenomenon. Not only it isn’t just the US, but Europe started much earlier. Italy in particular never got around dealing with fascists (even monuments to the regime are still up), the Italian right is notoriously and literally still fascist (there is even a party called Movimento Fascismo e Libertà - Fascism and Freedom Movement) with parties like CasaPound Italia and Forza Nuova still active, with the center-right being not far off but mostly keeping a public face of only “conservatives”. Mussolini’s granddaughter Alessandra Mussolini is still active in politics and a member of the senate and of the European Parliament for Central Italy. This is 100% true, Europe has a long history with both far left and far right politics, but the far right was still for the most part not that popular except in isolated incidents like in Ukraine or Golden Dawn in Greece, but I make the claim that the far right is making a pretty effective and large comeback because neoliberal austerity measures and other economic factors have hurt many European countries. Since the left in these countries has been ineffective in addressing the grievances of the people or flat out infiltrated or thwarted by the state. The populist right was emotionally appealing in a time of economic need (much like the Nazis were in Germany who scapegoated Jewish people) and has thus surged by blaming refugees, immigration, etc. The left would have been able to counter the right in many of these countries without using economic scapegoating but as I said many were prevented or attacked. So although the presence of the far right has never left Europe I do think there are reasons to believe it’s on the rise just like in the United States. In Austria the Greens BARELY beat the far right wing party and Poland is a good example of the far right taking over as well. Oh yes, absolutely. The combined economic crisis of early 2000’s and the current immigration/refugee situation created the perfect panoramic for fear mongering and scapegoating tactics that the extreme right is so adept at using. They’ve been gaining ground for quite some time now. The ineptitude and infighting common in the European left also meant they were unable to create a coherent narrative and opposition (and don’t get me started on the racism is not a thing here” moderates).I wrote only about Italy because that’s what I have personal and deeper experience with, and to remember/tell people that fascism never really went away. (I still want to go back there and deface that horrid obelisk to Mussolini in front of the Foro Italico…) Well thank you so much, because I learned something today. Had no idea musollinis granddaughter was still active omg thats so scary lol and yeah Europe is not a post-racial utopia and that includes Scandinavia which some liberals claim is the zenith of all morality lol

Beautiful, Bored, and Head: Here's a prime example of "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" offered by an English professor from the University of Phoenix: The professor told his class one day:Today we will ex- periment with a new form called the tandem story The process is simple. Each person will pair off with the person sitting to his or her immediate right. As home- work tonight, one of you will write the first paragraph of a short story. You will e-mail your partner that para- graph and send another copy to me. The partner will read the first paragraph and then add another para- graph to the story and send it back, also sending an- other copy to me. The first person will then add a third paragraph, and so on back-and-forth. Remember to re-read what has been written each time in order to keep the story coherent. There is to be ab- solutely NO talking outside of the e-mails and any- thing you wish to say must be written in the e-mail. The story is over when both agree a con- clusion has been reached." The following was actually turned in by two of his English students: Rebecca and Gary THE STORY: (first paragraph by Rebecca) At first, Laurie couldn't decide which kind of tea she wanted. The chamomile, which used to be her favorite for lazy evenings at home, now reminded her too much of Carl, who once said, in happier times, that he liked chamomile. But she felt she must now, at all costs, keep her mind off Carl. His possessiveness was suffocating, and if she thought about him too much her asthma started acting up again. So chamomile was out of (second paragraph by Gary) Meanwhile, Advance Sergeant Carl Harris, leader of the attack squadron now in orbit over Skylon 4, had more important things to think about than the neuroses of an air-headed asthmatic bimbo named Laurie with whom he had spent one sweaty night over a year ago. "A.S. Harris to Geostation 17," he said into his transgalactic communicator. "Polar orbit established. No sign of resistance so far.." But before he could sign off a bluish particle beam flashed out of nowhere and blasted a hole through his ship's cargo bay. The jolt from the direct hit sent him flying out of his seat and across the ####pit. (Rebecca) He bumped his head and died almost immediately, but not before he felt one last pang of regret for psychically brutalizing the one woman who had ever had feelings for him. Soon afterwards, Earth stopped its pointless hostilities towards the peace- ful farmers of Skylon 4. "Congress Passes Law Per- manently Abolishing War and Space Travel, Laurie read in her newspaper one morning. The news si multaneously excited her and bored her. She stared out the window, dreaming of her youth, when the days had passed unhurriedly and care- free, with no newspaper to read, no television to distract her from her sense of innocent wonder at all the beautiful things around her. "Why must one lose one's innocence to become a woman?" she pondered wistfully (Gary) Little did she know, but she had less than 10 sec- onds to live. Thousands of miles above the city, the Anu'udrian mothership launched the first of its lithium fusion missiles. The dimwitted wimpy peaceniks who pushed the Unilateral Aerospace disarmament Treaty through the congress had left Earth a defenseless target for the hostile alien em- pires who were determined to destroy the human race. Within two hours after the passage of the treaty the Anu'udrian ships were on course for Earth, carrying enough firepower to pulverize the entire With no one to stop them, they swiftly initiated their diabolical plan. The lithium fusion missile en- tered the atmosphere unimpeded. The President, in his top-secret mobile submarine headquarters on the ocean floor off the coast of Guam, felt the inconceivably massive explosion, which vaporized poor, stupid Laurie. (Rebecca) This is absurd. I refuse to continue this mockery of literature. My writing partner is a violent, chauvin- Yeah? Well, my writing partner is a self-centered tedious neurotic whose attempts at writing are the literary equivalent of Valium. "Oh, shall I have chamomile tea? Or shall I have some other sort of F-KING TEA??? Oh no, what am I to do? I'm such an air headed bimbo who reads too many Danielle Steele novels!" Arsehole. (Gary) B'tch. F K YOU-YOU NEANDERTHALI! Gary) In your dreams, Ho. Go drink some tea. (TEACHER) A+ I really liked this one. I wish I had a teacher like him
