  • @Groth "with sexual implication" is a good term, which probably would have saved this lady. Not in UTAH, THOUGH! Jesus I wouldn't take my pants off to shit in Utah just in case.

    Also, sidebar, I noticed that Swedish wording doesn't exclude online interactions as "with sexual implication." It says touch or other act with sexual implication



  • In Texas, 'indecent exposure' is defined as genitals or anus. So breasts are A-OK!

    Texas is insanely backwards in some ways, but progressive in others. It's a very strange place sometimes.

    My GUESS is that they lean so pro-life they'd lean being pro-breastfeeding in public enough to want it to be OK. That's just a theory. I grew up in the kind of evangelical circles where women were expected to be able to breastfeed wherever. But I know some fundie circles were opposed to that.

    IT IS A VERY WEIRD KIND OF SOCIETY.

    or anus

    ...oops.

    Well, there goes that idea.

  • Peeve:

    Stop using the Track Changes function in Word.

    Just stop it, people.

    That motherfucking tool fucks with formatting.

    Stop using it.

    Especially you lawyers. If you can't be bothered to read the document carefully to find the changes then turn in your license. It's your job to read things thoroughly.

    Just stop using it.

    I was required to use it by a couple professors in school.

  • @Auspice

    it's just another pain in the ass when you have a global purchase agreement that is ten pages long with attached schedules ranging from 2-4 pages, of which there are 15.

    Stop. Tracking. Fucking. Changes.

    Just stop. Everyone, stop. And read your shit. I have to re-format this motherfucking deal every time you fucking touch it you shitbags and it is a waste of my time because I can read and do not need you to point out what you changed, you garbagefuckers.

    I went to GenCon when it was in Minneapolis. They placed black tape over all the nipples in the artists exhibit. When GenCon moved to Indianapolis nipples were allowed. Like Texas, Indianapolis is more conservative than Minneapolis.

    I think it's evidence that conservatives love nipples more than progressives. :-P



  • @Tyche

    Try to find nipples in an Ohio strip joint that isn’t a private club without alcohol.

    I’ll wait.

    Maybe Ohio is more of a purple state, and that makes it more nipple ambiguous.
    And speaking of Ohio and stripping, the pride of my home town.
    In Indiana, not only do they allow nipples and alcohol together, nipples are allowed to freely roam and bounce off of other living objects.



  • In Oregon, nudity is protected free speech, and thus we have the highest per capita concentration of strip clubs in the country in Portland.

    Perhaps educate yourself before going on yet another one of your ill-informed owning the libs rants.



  • When it comes to adult industry, the hodge-lodge of state laws regulating it is humorously diverse.

    Frankly, as long as everyone is safe and consenting, who gives a flying fuck? That seems to be the sentiment of the people I jive with.

    People who have to pull others down to feel better about their issues. I shouldn't have to spend three hours fixing your cruelty to a junior member of staff who was just getting her belief in her abilities.

    Not entirely sure where to put this. Not a peeve, but not ... anyway, so this happened to me today.

    Me: peruses inbox at work (for a government agency)
    INBOX: Top email subject line: INVITATION TO SHANG
    Me: chokes on coffee, looks horrified, like WHAT THE ENTIRE FUCK. Tentatively click on e-mail.
    EMAIL: INVITATION TO SHANGHAI BALLET
    Me: OhthankyouJesus.

    This is the point of tax season where I basically have all of our stuff entered.....

    Save for our mortgage information, because our mortgage company's website sucks and works on exactly no browsers despite what they say, and one piece of paper from my retirement investments that won't come until more than halfway through February.

    Fuck you guys. I want my refund. :(

    give it to me



  • @Aria Uggggggh. I understand.

    All three companies I've worked for (the one that fired me in Feb, the gap job, and my current company) haven't provided my tax info yet. I'm so fucking annoyed. I usually have my taxes DONE by now.

    Same, except I have all my stuff submitted and the IRS is like "90% of refunds are issued within 21 days*"

    Unless you have the earned income tax credit and then fuck you, we think you are scamming us, you can wait until March



  • Every company should send a rejection notice if they aren't gonna proceed after they interview you. Even if it's a form letter they just hit a button and have auto-emailed.

    But if you take a test (coding test, writing test, whatever) for them? Then they abso-fucking-lutely should do this. It should not be a week after I interviewed and then spent a weekend on what was probably about ten hours of work on a writing assignment without hearing word.

    This is bullshit.
    You can spend two minutes to either acknowledge receipt, let me know you won't proceed, or scheduling the next interview.

    Some companies take weeks to make a decision on who is going to move forward, especially if they have something intensive like that. You might not be out of luck yet!

    During the phone interview I was told I'd hear back 'a couple days' after I sent in the test. :|

    It just always reminds me of this time when I was being walked out after this interview and the guy went on, at length, about how I would absolutely, definitely, hear from them and gosh, he hates it too when companies never let you know and he would personally make sure I heard back one way or another and...

    I mean this fucker went on for a good two, three minutes about how he would absolutely follow up, whether it was good news or bad.

    I never heard anything.
