Isn't shaming essentially bullying hiding under righteous indignation?

I've thought about this for the past few months, but like a smart person, I went and found someone else who said it; so you can take it up with her if you disagree, because I can't be taking time off from playing with my stuff animals to argue about this.

Shaming - specifically "online shaming" seems to me to be nothing more than ganging up consensus to your side and bullying the heck out of someone who you disagree with.

I'd rather just go up to the individual one-on-one and say, "dude, why are you dispatching this most penile move?"
Mad at some jerk? Think twice before sending that damning tweet.

I would be simply exhausted if I were in Richards' position just to think of the effort of dealing with every sexist man in the audience (even if it wasn't anything near a majority), because over time, it would be like she had to do that.  Also I can see how the men would feel totally blindsided by the power that ultimately made Richards not-exhausted with respect to opposing them.  It seems like this game (the Twitter-shaming one) is set up to make everyone lose.  Richards can only use too much force or not enough.  So we should back up and not even play that game (but we will still play some kind of game to try to gain the advantage on sexism, etc.)  Richards could just decide to soldier on and re-educate each member of the cloud of tech men, despite her exhaustion, or maybe the solution comes from other people at other times addressing the roots of it, whatever those really are.  (My guess is they're not always the roots that people would immediately think of, because we know about those and simply knowing them doesn't always work.  I think when we go for depth we often take something like the 5 Whys idea (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5_Whys) and stop at the first or second Why.)

The Cleveland Upskirt Law

An old city ordinance in Cleveland, Ohio, prohibits women from wearing patent leather shoes in public. Why? Lawmakers of old decided that shiny footwear could give gentleman an unintentional peep show.

....a city law in Charlotte, N.C., women must be swathed in at least 16 yards of fabric before going out in public.

What the hay? That's 8 yards less than what I normally wear. Wenches!

I love the idea of eco-friendly recycling waste-powered buses. Not sure I'd be so brazen as to advertise it openly. U.K. is testing out the bio-bus that runs on waste, landfill, sewage and poop. Oslo has already rolled it out for years. I have been waiting patiently for America to get on track with the program.

And what have we got so far? Right. A $6 per ride i-Bus to match your i-Pad, i-Life, and venti mocca fappucino complete with American Beauty soundtrack. http://goo.gl/hNYUDr

In my youth and infinite naivete, I thought a spanky swanky haute-couture handbag would change my life and my station in life.

Foolish youth.

Here is the handbag that will truly transform my life... and the many stations I will soon be visiting in my life.

We can do this +Kelleigh E. !

Oh dear! Is this what a rock concert looks like today?

I must confess, it's been a while. Whatever happened to the good old days when everyone spoke to each other and you could give a nice young man a butterscotch candy from your purse, like here: http://goo.gl/tjuxQS

It Began In Afrika-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka....

Update: 3:21AM EST
The piece is from the soundtrack of "Out of Africa." (1985) by John Barry. ( https://youtu.be/eWZ2adCaKo4?t=31s ) I was 6 years off. Moonraker was 1979. That's a true sign of style...Barry has such a signature sound, it's hard to imagine anyone else writing this piece.



*******original post below**********

Obscure music fans, please help me ID this outro of The Private Psychedelic Reel in Open Air Fields Festival from a Chemical Brothers concert in '02!

I'm feeling John Barry, composer of multiple James Bond movie soundtracks, but I've listened to almost all his Bond OST today. Maybe it's just a musical style from a certain decade. Moonraker came so darn close. The musical devices and counterpoint is very similar.

What say you music yodas? +Christopher Wice +Bob Amos, +Ned Hamson, +Alistair McHarg , +Curtis Wenzel, and +Jeff Moore(somebody at WMFU could definitely knock this one out in 3 seconds flat)

Google Doodler Sophie Daio's animation of Momofuku Ando is pure genius. She captures the four faces that I have seen EVERY PERSON make when eating instant noodles. 1) Intense concentration on mixing instant ingredients 2) The msg laden steam enters the nostrils setting off the hypothalamus  3) Consume with ferocity 4) Carb drunk.
