This happened in the UK recently, and it went so far that one of the responders actually DID force himself into the woman's home. Luckily, he was a "rape fantasy"-guy rather than an actual rapist, and called the whole thing off when he got suspicious that the woman wasn't the one who placed the ad. I think the… » 9/14/14 5:59pm Sunday 5:59pm

Yes. This discussion was had 2 years ago. We came to the conclusion that it was double two-factor, or possibly 3-factor since one of those things is something I AM, my personal number literally being who I am according to Swedish law. » 9/10/14 1:02pm 9/10/14 1:02pm

Jesus Christ, I seriously do not understand where people like this come from. Makes me ashamed to be a man. I'm also slightly worried about this guy, shades of that kid who shot those cheerleaders with his "recognize superiority" bullshit. I'm off to paint my nails in solidarity with women. » 9/05/14 5:13am 9/05/14 5:13am

I'm not even touching this one, but I told my wife about the backlash against this nail-polish, and her knee-jerk response was "For fucks sake. Sometimes I hate being a feminist, because I understand why we get a bad rep." That was my very feminist wife speaking. » 8/30/14 4:55pm 8/30/14 4:55pm

Can't we just agree that whenever one of these trolly asshats appear in a comment field, we reply with a single word (and only that word) until they understand that they're not wanted or supported? I propose brat, goblin, or simply asshat. Votes? » 8/29/14 2:10am 8/29/14 2:10am

Just to add to this, on the grounds that the actor has to have had at least one movie that is generally considered both good and financially successful (not like that silly themarvelous1310 seems to think, their own opinion):

James Dean - The Giant (awesome film) and Rebel Without a Cause (both successful and hugely… » 8/28/14 5:45pm 8/28/14 5:45pm

Two kids and a demanding job meant I hardly had time to read at all - I had no commute as I lived five minutes walk from work, and at night I was too tired. I'm now an avid audio-book "reader", and can read when I'm doing house-work, driving etc etc etc. I use a Kindle with Whispersync if I ever get a free moment to… » 8/26/14 4:42am 8/26/14 4:42am

To be fair, the Ice bucket Challenge has been around for more than a year, but was only linked to ALS a couple of months ago - so it doesn't "belong" to a single cause at all. The baseball player with ALS ( Pete Frates) who was one of the first (but actually, not the first) who linked it to ALS rather than another… » 8/25/14 8:50am 8/25/14 8:50am

While I agree whole-heartedly that he seems like a racist, misogynistic douchenozzle, he did have a streak during the eighties and the nineties where he wrote many, many excellent comics. Besides the Dark Knight Returns, there's Ronin, his Daredevil run, Elektra Assassin, Wolverine, Batman: Year One, and Give Me… » 8/23/14 2:38am 8/23/14 2:38am
