Cool fact: exploitation rules if the exploited party also gets something out of it

Cool fact: power dynamics are complex and have a lot of variables and there are many situations that can be both good and bad at the same time.

MeFi post: The Vitamin Myth: Why We Think We Need Supplements
G&Ts were for malaria, not scurvy.

Limes, which of course you are using to garnish your G&T, are a decent source of vitamin C.

Unfortunately, lime wedges are quite small. You'll probably need to have a few drinks to get a suitable dosage.

I found F For Fake to be so unbearably and disappointingly unwatchable that it made me physically sad.

Look up promiscuity and sociosexuality on wikipedia for reference.

Well, you know- Jonah Lehrer's no stranger to love. You know the rules, and so does he. A full commitment is what he's thinking of. In fact, you wouldn't get this from any other guy.

MeFi post: Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who
There is a partially-spoken reason in Doctor Who about the "Britishness" of The Doctor. The Gallifreyans, the Time Lords, resemble British People. The Doctor, in several versions, has spoken of a personal affection for Earth in general and England and London in particular. (Probably the way most people are most comfortable around people like ourselves; human/Gallifreyan nature) I don't recall ever seeing a dark-skinned Time Lord

I didn't... [more]

I have to admit, this is a pretty awesome tweet from Mark Towhey, the COS Ford just fired yesterday.
(For those not following along at home, a few days before the crack thing came out, Ford had rather bizarrely bolted from a community meeting in Etobicoke and started slapping ROB FORD - MAYOR magnets on cars in the parking lot...kind of cute how that was a big scandal a week ago.)... [more]

I guess the question is, mathowie racks up some gambling debts to the mob or whatever; at what level would he consider selling mefi to keep his legs unbroken rather than seeking some other source of money?

MeFi post: If it's consensual, can it ever be wrong?
I was especially worried that it was some kind of insane racial euphemism.

2: And then?

1: What, there has to be an "and then"?

Matthew's housemate Christen and I will be finalizing memorial arrangements today. The memorial will be held Saturday in Portland, and I will post other details as soon as they're settled. There will also be smaller, more informal gatherings throughout the weekend and possibly forever.

Xen and I agreed that it would be better to share a little more about Matthew's death, because all of us are united in thinking that this is bullshit, and this should not have happened.... [more]

MeFi post: It made his insect eyes flash like a rocket.
I've always maintained that Hamlet was actually about a fiendish Norwegian plot to destabilize the Danish monarchy: notice how Prince Fortinbras conveniently swoops in at the very end to take control of Denmark because all of the local claimants have killed each other?

There's actually an explanation for that.

MetaTalk post: Woman speaks truth to power; Metafilter shuts it down.
The idea that the mod's careful curation of posts is preventing anyone "speaking truth to power" is a ridiculous conspiracy theory. We all know that a number of users here are responsible for certain threads being extremely difficult for the mods to manage.

So too, I know some of you are thinking that maybe the "difficult users" I've mentioned are the MODS THEMSELVES - purposefully sabotaging dicussions and deleting the resulting trainwrecks, simply... [more]

On the one hand, of course it's shitty that there are racist people. But as a Canadian, I think that's kind of awesome that we can now lay claim to a whole mess of great Jazz, Funk, & Soul musicians

As a black person living in the South, I'm willing to trade jazz for that fablous 20th century invention, "socialized" healthcare.

Keep your cold paws off the Delta Blues, though.
