    Wow! I have so much respect for you, and I think that is so...well, hopefully it isn't too irreverent to say cool. Thank you so much for posting here.

    What is your view of gender (such as, are there only two, or do you view it as more of a continuum?)? If you were a parent and had an intersexed child, would you make the same decision your parents did? Do you find yourself involved in intersexual rights? Do you know what caused the hermaphroditism?

    I actually just finished my bachelors thesis involving intersexual identities and society, but not being intersexual myself, I've been incredibly curious about how someone who is actually in that place sees those issues.

    Be well! :)

    You make some valid points. I guess I just hoped that if stupid religious watch dog groups can sometimes change things via letter writing campaigns and being a vocal minority that a few redditors would want to do the same and use the power to increase choice rather than suppress it. It's not commercials that I hate, in a way I like the breaks that let me pay attention to other things. I just don't want to be bombarded with death or sex or scams. Maybe I am naive but if they advertised video games, computer parts, books, motorcycles, and car performance parts rather than "Saw 20 yes we will keep milking this tired shit", I might actually buy something.

    I expected a whole lot of "throw a technical solution at a social problem" but I kind of hoped there would be a few kindred souls. Ah well. Want in one hand as the saying goes.

    I do. His problem has nothing to do with power - which is all rape is - a demonstration of power by someone who desires it. His problem is an attraction to young girls. He is evidently non-violent by nature - why do you assume he would use violence? He is attracted to older women just the same and has that outlet for sexual pleasure.

    You, however, scare me. You appear to have a desire to punish someone who has done nothing illegal and has shown no capacity to commit a crime...punish him for a thought crime? I am empathetic to what happened to you, but that gives you nor anyone else a free-pass to be judge, jury and executioner for every single person in this world with socially unacceptable thoughts.

    Yea, the only reason why I still vote for Democrats is because the alternative is worse. If I had a viable third-party alternative, I'd probably vote that way.

    Of course, for a third party to be viable, you need major reforms to the voting system, and who controls that? The people you're trying to vote out of office.

    I hate to say it, but more and more I feel like major revolution in this country is inevitable (not just because of this issue), and might even happen in the next 20 years.

    This is something that my friends and I discussed at great length during the election. Though I did not do this last year (I think it's pretty unethical). I would like to propose what we called the "Tancredo Gambit"... though at this point I guess it would be called the "Palin/Bachman/Taitz gambit" which involves changing your party affiliation to Republican and voting in every primary for the craziest rightwinger you can find. I think this is more horrifying to democratic apparatchiks than voting for say a Sanders or Kucinich.

    >Having said that: the driver is not at fault

    Absolutely true.

    A colleague and instructor of mine was rolling in to a station a couple of years ago, at about 40km/h, slowing to a stop. Suddenly he noticed a guy lying on one of the rails. The guy noticed the train and how slow it was moving, and tried to adjust himself - situating himself as to lie lengthwise on the rail.

    Then he decided not to, but it was too late. My colleague, of course, had already pulled the brakes and had stepped back from the window. Crunch, crunch, and it was done. He called it in. Went back to look at the mess, and waited. Nothing to do about it.

    Paramedics arrived, and one of them talked to him, another went to the guy down under.

    Suddenly the paramedic exclaims, 'He's still alive!'.

    The guy lost an arm and a shoulder, both legs and a chunk of his pelvis.

    Strange thing is, the guys father refuses to believe that his son was lying there willingly and somehow blames my colleague. For three years now he's been harassing him and he's been forced to deal with the police repeteadly calling him about new charges and accusations.

    >Physics dictates what the shortest distance is

    Yeah. As soon as a new driver understands this the general discussion on suicides/accidents is sort of done. We operators get it, though not all cope with it of course. I think the record in my country is something around 13, maybe 16. After that he quit, I think.

    I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm just the guy pulling levers and listening to beeps.

    I'm thinking your shame has more to do with creating that past account on a 'looking for sex' website versus the dating one. But who knows.

    My recommendation? Go at her directly - this isn't a huge deal. If you're interested in dating her, tell her. If not, just pass. I wouldn't try to manipulate the situation, or try to take advantage or go at the situation sideways. Just talk to her like a human being, the way you'd want to be talked to. Be upfront. It's refreshing and people like it and respond well to it.

    I've read the same thing. A few years ago, I probably wouldn't have really believed it but now, I've come around. You remind me of myself with the music thing; that's how I was then. I quit a band to focus on my electronic side projects.

    I'm sure I'm a bit shy as well as neurotic (everyone says I over-think things) but I doubt I have social anxiety because I've never had any actual panic attacks. Well anyways, I'm inspired...I'm going to leave the house tomorrow and take a walk at least. Thanks!

    The *original* reason for unifying the servers was so that they would all play "reasonably"- that way one server owner couldn't jack up the stats of the people on his server. The original reason for ban-sharing was that if someone was cheating or griefing they couldn't just go from server to server and take forever to weed out of the community. (As a side effect, this is why the standard to ban someone was set so high- XiTorizo felt that if we were going to have a procedure in place to ban someone from all the servers then it shouldn't be trivial.) The original reason for admin-sharing was so that it would be easier for people to find an admin if one wasn't on the server and was needed. This is also why all the admins were given mod status on r/tf2- to make it easier to go "hey we have someone below the map on this custom map could you come kick him?" and the guy would *actually have admin access* to that server; this was done after we had several incidences where people who had admin on one server were asked to fix problems on other servers and were helpless.

    A BFA is a waste of time coming from someone who has one it hasn't helped me at all in the real world. Unless you want to go to an MFA program which you shouldn't do unless you want to compete for a kush job in academia. You would be better off living off the money art school would cost you and making art full time, while taking workshop to learn the specific skills you want to be taught. Of course in order to do this you have to be extremely disciplined but if you are really passionate about art it shouldnt be to hard. Also expose yourself to as much art as you can, read as many art rags and go to as many gallery shows and museum shows as you can. This will give you a large source of inspiration to draw from but will also get you in the habit of comparing your work to professionals you admire which you will have to do if you want to compete.

    1) Project manager douchebags. They don't do any work and just tell you what you should be doing. My PM was always fine, but PMs on teams I had to deal with were always assholes who wanted me to do their work for them. Also, I ran in to a handful of tech leads whose egos were so large, they had their own gravity. Being a professional environment, you can't just tell them to go fuck themselves. Also, without fail, at every engineering all-hands meeting, Larry Page threatens to sue you for tens of millions of dollars if you disclose confidential information. Quote:"I know it's not a lot of money for the company but it's a lot of money for you, so don't talk to the press." Asshole.

    2) I was an engineer on a product that was never released to the public. It went nowhere. Well, at least it hasn't been released to the public yet, and when I left, it didn't look like it was ever going to be because NOBODY could get their acts together. Need machines? Fuck you. Need engineers? Fuck you. Need SREs (site reliability engineers)? Fuck you.

    3) No.

    Also, please upvote me so I can reply to your questions.

    > A boost button is cheating I'm not putting it lightly, overtaking someone only using your boost button takes away from the skill required of the drivers.

    I dunno Heikki, you could say the same thing about pretty much any innovation in the car. What about adjustable ignition timing. Brake balance adjustment, Wing adjustment. Tire selection. Fuel management. It is all part of racing.

    Listening to Kimi and Hamilton, they plan out where they can use KERS and where they need to use it. It becomes part of the lap strategy.

    To me it's no different than planning the entry to a turn to be early or late, depending on your competitive position on the track. To maintain a position, a driver might brake late, and sacrifice exit speed as well as absolute lap time. And Kers is a similar speed management tool. I don't think it's artificial at all. I love the technology - I think it's really cool and it's the biggest tech advance in F1, in years. It's just that its artificially limited, as it is today.

    1. I think the current system is broken. I don;t think we will see wholesale changes in our generation because too many powerful people are making huge amounts of money off the current system (hint: it's not the doctors).

    2. Annual exam varies depending if there are any issues or not. Generally 20-30 min. It's a PAP, cultures and we go over contraception and any ongoing concerns the pt has. Pregnancy visits are fast 15 min.

    3. I have no relationship with drug reps they are banned at my institution. I don't even have any branded pens or other paraphernalia. I haven;t even spoken to a rep in over a year.

    4. Not well it's poor and hispanic so there is a ton of misinformation out there. I see many teens who have been pregnant 3-4 times already. It's a huge battle to convince them to use contraception.

    5. I do them very rarely, one of my colleagues is fellowship trained in Family Planning and does terminations exclusively so I will refer them to her. I don't have any objections to doing them but OR time is a precious commodity so I try and save tt for more challenging procedures.

    6. I don't do any IVF we have a separate group of fellowship trained REI specialists who handle that. I don't think they have any issues denying it to lesbian couples.

    7. We use a standard consent form for all contraception that has info on the effects on mood.

    8. None technically I am salaried to the hospital and they cover insurance.

    9. I used to be a huge gamer, haven't played anything in about 5 years. I went through a divorce in med school and the amount of stress I had from school and the time invested contributed to that. I had a dream of becoming a humanities college professor or a computer programmer when I was in high school but I don't regret my career path.

    Let me preface this by explaining that I'm a survivor of chronic childhood sexual abuse, age 5-11.

    This is the kind of thing that can never become public - it's just too emotionally charged. There are way too many women like me (some statistics say that up to 20% of women were sexually abused as girls). I know that it's an innate urge that you can't control, and that you've never acted on it, but there are a lot of people out there without your self control. There is a lot of fear. I sympathize with you because I know you didn't choose to have these urges, but that doesn't mean I'm any less terrified of you.

    Didn't read far enough down to know if someone has already posted my favorite, so I just will.

    A biologist, and engineer, and a mathematician are sitting on a balcony watching the building across the street. They watch two people go in, then later three people come out. The biologist says "They must have reproduced and created another person." The engineer says "We must have made an error in the initial count." The mathematician says "You're both wrong. If another person goes in the building it will be empty again."

    Wow, never had any idea so many people had tooth dreams.

    I remember having a dream where one of my teeth fell out and I was horrified and embarrassed, but since it was one of the harder to see teeth in the back I buried it and tried to forget. Later I came back and it had grown into a huge crystal. Then all my teeth slowly turned to crystals and as I tried to speak or chew I could feel my mouth hardening and cracking and the crystals ripping through my gums and tongue as teeth became crystals and invaded my mouth. I remember pulling them out frantically, one by one, but the crystals kept on growing and I kept tearing them out and throwing them on the ground until finally I was trapped in an inescapable room of crystal, while the crystals in my mouth kept growing faster than I could get rid of and my whole body transformed into a giant crystal.

    Are you an Indian? You show some astute observations, but some of your points are a little off. Allow me to add my 2-cents to each of your points.

    1. In urban India, the caste system is passe for everything except two important areas - a) when applying to be a student in colleges or applying for government jobs. In India's own version of affirmative action, large number of student openings and govt job openings are reserved for people from castes classified as 'low'. b) arranged marriages. Parents and families are extremely prejudiced when looking for prospective mates for their children. They refuse to consider prospects from other castes. In these two areas, the caste differences play a major role.

    2. Plenty of Indian kids work in their family businesses while going to school. I have known kids doing everything from milking the family cows to working in the family's jewellery store. And yes, that includes the paper route also. But you are right when you say that Indians are not as independent as Americans. The reason for this is simple - small help like housemaids, plumbers, chaffeurs, etc. are *extremely* cheap in India, compared to the US.

    3. Bingo.

    4. There is a very valid reason for this. In *all* Indian languages, words like "please" and "thank you" are *extremely* formal and big words. They are used very rarely when speaking, only on occasions that require that level of formality. In fact, I can't remember the last time I used those words in any Indian language. When some of us come to America, we are shocked by the amount of 'please' and 'thank you' that casually get thrown around here, and frankly we doubt the sincerity of most of it. And you are right about the second part of your comment about some Indians getting mildly offended if you thank them. Just a couple weeks ago, an Indian who has been in the US for over 9 years, asked me in all seriousness why I had to be so formal and say thank you to them.

    5. Right on, again.

    The problem with this model is that the issue, universal health care, itself occupies a position far to the left, therefore Republicans would have to leapfrog Democrats to "win more voters". Unless of course they came up with a viable free-market solution to the problem... since they had the power to do that already and didn't use it, it seems unlikely.

    The actual winning move for Republicans at this point is to do nothing. Health care reform will either fall apart on its own or be passed in a terrible form and end up being an expensive disaster. As the saying goes... the only winning move is not to play the game.

    Sorry bro, you're wrong. MMA math doesn't work. Without saying anything about Nog's chances against Lesnar, I can assure you that his performance against Couture and Couture's performance against Lesnar, cannot in any way --despite what you may think and despite what may seem obvious to you-- be used to definitively determine the outcome of a fight between Nog and Lesnar. With each fighter everything changes and where one fighter's style may be susceptible to defeat by overwhelming physical strength and power, it is a fool who imagines that the same is therefore true of all other fighters who are the same size. We don't use size as a metric in measuring fight ability for the very good reason that it simply does not work.

    MMA is not a linear equation and the sooner you wrap your head around that idea, the sooner you will be able to look at potential fights with real insight.

    No indeed. We moved the country quite a bit to the left in the last election, but the job's not done. Not all the Democrats are Bernie Sanders, to say the least, and there are still plenty of Republicans. This will take time and consistent effort through several election cycles to really change things.

    Also, the left has, I'm sorry to say, exaggerated the importance of a federal public option. As long as there's nothing to prevent states from setting up state-run health care, any US state that wants to can set up a public plan just like the federal one. The claims that this won't work are absurd--it works just fine in Canada (which, though you wouldn't know it from the US media, doesn't have any federal health care).

    Both kinds of people are jerks who don't want to make an effort to learn (1) the English language and (2) communication etiquette.

    There are jerks in India, and there are jerks in the rest of the world. Indian jerks stand out of the crowd because of the peculiar brand of English they speak/write.

    Perhaps I should start a collection of the hopelessly depressing business letters Indians write. It sounds like something from the 18th century. Here's an example from my inbox:

    I was referring to the massive recall Toyota just issued regarding the gas pedal becoming stuck to the floor. The problem resulted in the death of an off duty police officer and his family while they were on the phone with 911. You were talking of your friend's problems he had with one model, and how you swore off BMW because of that. Toyota's problem spans multiple model years and almost every car they and Lexus make. Anecdotal evidence does not make for a strong argument. Compared to what that family went through slamming into a semi head on at 120mph, I would pay any price for a car that wouldn't let that happen.

    The year is 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule, have come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the Criminally Insane, to investigate the disappearance of a patient. Multiple murderess Rachel Solando is loose somewhere on this remote and barren island, despite having been kept in a locked cell under constant surveillance. As a killer hurricane bears relentlessly down on them, a strange case takes on even darker, more sinister shades -- with hints of radical experimentation, horrifying surgeries, and lethal countermoves made in the cause of a covert shadow war. No one is going to escape Shutter Island unscathed, because nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. But then neither is Teddy Daniels.

    I'm gonna make myself sound paranoid — I'm not, really. I just prefer to be over-cautious in a few select areas...

    If I notice a vehicle appearing to follow me, I will simply take an unusual turn - living in a moderately small town, there's a dozen different routes to get anywhere you want to go that won't take but an extra minute or two...

    And if they're behind me when I get to my house, all I have to do is go around the block.

    Usually I find they turn off when we get to the end of the street. Or if they turn the same way, when I turn onto the next neighborhood street, they'll continue onward -- i.e. they were just happening to be going the same way.

    So all this blather to suggest: Go around a block if you think someone is following you. It won't take but a minute or two, and will calm you down. :)

    (Note that if it's a police car doing this, going around a block will probably result in flashy lights behind you :D )

    *Reflection over the state of the Peoples Republic of China*

    I study at a international masters program and we have several Chines students attending the program. They are really good students and very nice and friendly people, however, when ever you try to start up a conversation about how China is being governed it turns awkward. They are almost incapable of reflecting about how china is governed, the most lengthy reply I ever got was that they did not want war and that is what democracy would lead to at the moment. When I tried to follow that up with questions about if the country ever would hold together in its current form and size, they just deflected the question with another "We do not want war".
