A friend of mine is developing a cool thing: A box of generic game components, with rules for different games you can play with it.

Never heard of it. This is made by a guy whose game designs I've played and like, is all I know.

"Sex surveys around the world show a substantial gap in sexual desire and motivation between men and women. This cannot be dismissed as an outdated patriarchal myth as argued by some feminists."

"Male sexual desire is manifested at least twice as often as female desire, with the gap growing over time."

Hello, Beast.

Cool thing: Ireland's official twitter account is currently run by a sex worker. Check out @ireland on Twitter for some informed opinion.

I wonder what it's like for Americans?

I find myself reading stuff about the U. S., retweeting criticism of how things are Over There, and sometimes talking to people (IRL and on the internet) about U. S.-specific problems.

I wonder what people in the U. S. think about foreigners having so many opinions on your country. Trying to imagine people in (for instance) Canada or Moldova or Japan spending so much time monitoring and debating the state of Norwegian politics, culture and society seems absurd... and it would probably make me/us a bit paranoid and defensive, I think.

So what's it like? Do these things even register with people over there? Does anyone care one way or another?

I agree with the above statements, and that's only insofar as people in this country are even aware of people discussing us abroad. It's not as if much of our news really mentions "and here are a few words from across the pond about how daft they find us."

I will say, though, that I found it funny and refreshing the first time I read BBC News covering something (I forget what) in a way that would've been branded as "biased" over here because it only stuck to facts and felt no need to treat "both sides" with equal deference.

+Matthijs Holter I agree. And I haven't read the book so I'm talking out of my ass.
I just don't see how "women should take advantage of their sexual desirability" follows from "men buy/desire sex more". I mean, if men do buy "more" sex (very probable), then they're still buying it from someone, so women are already cashing in on that capital. That's not advice, thats a description of existing unbalanced sexual relations (whatever the cause of that imbalance).

If you care about the fate of sex workers, please consider signing this petition. If nothing else, browse the list of supporting organizations - there are hundreds of them, from all over the world.

These are people fighting for a better life, and the ones we should be listening to; not rich Hollywood actresses, but working men and women with the strength and courage to stand up for themselves.
Support Amnesty International’s proposed policy calling for the decriminalisation of sex work NSWP and our allies take this opportunity to express our support for Amnesty International’s draft policy calling for the decriminalisation of sex work, which is to be tabled for adoption at the International Council Meeting, 6-11th August 2015.

What RPG has made you laugh the most while playing?

One thing before you post...:

It would be easy to just say TOON or whatever, on pure reflex, because we associate "laughing" with "games in the humor genre". And it's fine if you actually have laughed a lot while playing TOON or whatever. But just think a little bit, because who knows, maybe it was that weird late-night Spione game that made you really scream with laughter that one time.

So, has anyone tried Soylent? Or Joylent or any of the alternatives?

I have a bunch of Soylent and like it. I use it for breakfast / lunch on busy days. Biggest complaint is that the purchase turnaround was months when I got it, and it's more cumbersome to make less than a day's worth at once.
