The first casualty of the buyout.
I’ve never understood people who said that the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon wasn’t true to the game.
You have a party of people who barely get along and have weapons and skills they don’t know how to use.
They go on quests that don’t make sense and are pursued by a villain whose only goal *is* pursuing them.
And, they are “helped” by a Dungeon Master who never explains what’s going on.
Sounds about right to me…
One thing unanswered: what the hell is the cease and decease order about? Stop talking about Nutella, period? Is she making money off world Nutella day?
Truncate posts fix
Nice; half of it involves things more serious and involved than I want to be, but it’s never a bad thing to learn tricks and ‘hidden’ features.
Sadly, it’s probably going to be moot in the months to come, though…
A Glasgow nightclub has installed a two-way mirror which allows male revellers in private booths to spy on unsuspecting women as they visit the toilet! With no notification or signage anywhere in the venue many female club goers have been left feeling embarrassed and used. Although they do briefly show the mirrors in a promo video, the club has been quickly deleting comments and posts on their social media from club goers trying to alert others to the situation. This is pretty much illegal and hugley violates privacy. Thank you The Shimmy Club for giving us a shiny, new, creative and cool take on objectification.
i’m never leaving my house again, this world is just too fucked up.
gross gross gross gross gross
Good morning disgusting.
- “No space, leave the place” (fingernail test)
- A two way mirror must be set INTO the wall, not placed on top of it.
- If you rap/knock against the mirror, one installed onto a wall (a normal mirror) will make a dull sound, because there’s something behind it. A two-way will have more reverberation.
- Use the flashlight on your phone to shine on the mirror, if it’s a two-way, you’ll be able to see into the other room.
- You can also shield your eyes and see in if you lean up against the glass.
- The room being viewed will have to be brightly lit (10x brighter than the room looking in), so if you’re in a typical dimly lit club bathroom, you’re ok.
Let’s get the Met onto these sleezebags; it’s simply ILLEGAL; no if’s and’s or but’s.

“Can you hear me now?”
I am enjoying watching the Yahoo-Tumblr Freakout of 2013.
I want to pat you all on the heads and say, “Let me tell you a little story about something called “GeoCities.”
Then, I will move onto the Saga of Diaryland.
Then the Song of Livejournal.
And, the Tale of the Day the Blogspot Went Google
Eventually, we’d land on “The Day the MySpace Died.”
And, it would end with a prophecy.
“One day your children will have no idea that Google used to be a noun.”
Yeah, and do you remember DejaNews, Joan? I miss the practicality of that site…before this new little upstart Google came along and absorbed it, and transmuted its essence into something obtuse, bland, and abandoned.
I never got around to using GeoCities (I’d been seriously making plans at one point, but life happens) but I visited MANY a useful reference site hosted by them.
LJ and MySpace weren’t really ‘my bag’, but I used to have…at least one blog with Blogspot; for some reason my memory wants to say I’d started another blog but never updated it.
…and of course, this repetitive tale of death and destruction WILL carry on to the site we’re posting on right now; this is what happens.
No, it’s not the end of the world, just the end of tumblr., arising from inevitable changes to that will alienate the community, and this fruit will wither on the tree. People will stop using it either because of restrictive policies, or altered interfaces ‘crafted by consensus’, or the insidious intrusion of advertising.
…and life will go on; those people that will leave tumblr. will find other sites to use.
It’s just that finding a new sitethat meshes with what you want to do is such a pain in the ass! :)
And, Joan? Please don’t marginalize other people’s anxiety about this inevitable site-death; it might just be another step in an already long journey, and naught more than a nuisance, but remember that we oldies are NOT TUMBLR.’S TARGET DEMOGRAPHIC. We’re not 18-24, and we HAVE seen sites we liked and used and depended on fade away, or crash and burn.
…but they haven’t; this is their first time. And that happened to you once - you had to have experienced that feeling of loss and betrayal and abandonment, and felt it sharply for the (then) unique experience of it to you.
Think of how much better it would have been for you if someone else took you under their wing, was honest about what was going to happen, but supportive and helpful in getting you through your ‘first transition’? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do that for others now, who are facing this sort of thing for the first time?
