Rat

ralph
I turned away, it disappeared
the next morning, dog and/or gf had taken care of it
it was a roof rat, not the sewer rats we get in the garbage out front
actually kinda cute

Katya    
so a... higher.. class of rat?

ralph
looked down on the black rats

Frohman    
i bet his rat family is wondering when he's coming home
little hungry rat children
weeping rat wife
brave teenage boy rat, having to shoulder the responsibility of leading the family from now on. a burden he always knew he'd someday have, but... this soon? this soon? he's barely had a childhood.

ralph
he'll marry early in a desperate bid for the stability he never had

Frohman    
squaring his rat shoulders, his eyes shining. no tears now. no tears, ever, anymore. it was time to grow up, time to oh wait he just got run over by a UPS van

In America, This Is Called Cultural Sensitivity

spruce
You know what the great thing about Russians is? They look like Russians. There's a very distinctive look to them.

sallowness mixed with dead, sunken eyes

mouths that look both smirking and disapproving at once

ralph
some kind of color wheel might help diagram this out

Poles - work ethic =russians

germans - good posture + pessimism


ralph
spruce that look you identified--always struck me as "this person doesn't care what you think. And doesn't even need you to know that"

[OldF] Niteowl: just base
[OldF] Niteowl: base looks plenty nuts
stresstwig: indeed
stresstwig: indeed.
[OldF] Niteowl: wow, of the 21 best selling titles on steam at the moment, i only have 8

Baseline

Cyrano
I'm dealing with, "I want to tell you how I thought about you this weekend when I saw another woman's shoes, but I don't want to sound too much like a serial killer."

Don't even try to win this one.

How do you think that would look on a shirt?
Niteowl
pretty good as 'How do you think you'd look as a shirt?'
Niteowl
(don't say that)

(pro tip)

(also don't ask me how to NOT sound like a serial killer)

cheesoning
I was thinking of "Do you lotion your back?"
Cyrano
It's like when I saw that a woman in an elevator at work had a really great pedicure--but she wasn't someone I knew--So I spent the rest of the day thinking, "It's a damn shame there's not a good way to complement a complete stranger's toes..."
CPA-ONE
Just how stretchy is your skin?
Cyrano
"Without sounding like you want to put them in seperate jars."
cheesoning
we have pretty extensive training on sexual harassment for new employees here.

(tips on the best way to harass newbs. Yep.)

but it's crazy - you can't tell someone that their hair looks nice according to the rules.


CPA-ONE
it's funny how sexual harassment takes a sharp upwards spike after sexual harassment training
Cyrano
All I wanted to say was, "Hey, nice work... Good call..."
cheesoning
there's the possibility that they might take it as "I want to fuck your hair"
Cyrano
Couldn't find the words that would work.

(And not possibly get me sued into oblivion.)
cheesoning
"If I was some lecherous foot fetish person, I would probably have a huge boner right now. Thank goodness for both of us I'm not!"

"but seriously, who does your toes?"
Cyrano
I'm not a foot fetish person! Really nice shoes need to have a woman in them!

A woman who's still attached to the feet!

And not being held somewhere against her will!
cheesoning
see? totally normal.
Cyrano
I think I'm clearing the baseline.

There You Go, Talking Like You've Never Heard of a Ford Nova

GXG just poking around about it
looks like you have to show up to vote, but with secret ballots they can't prove that you actually voted
one phrase I saw was "compulsory turnout"
spruce http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_el…
$20 fine if you don't vote
of course you're not exactly getting people more informed as voters, just because you're making them vote
liquidindian No, but it's a start.
liquidindian I don't drive, so I know nothing about cars. But if I had to start driving tomorrow or else, I might do a bit of research on which one the brake is.

Reasonable Reaction

frohman
SIR YOU SEEM UNCOMFORTABLE BY THE MY HAND WRIGGLING INTO YOUR CRACK AND UNDER YOUR BALLS. PLEASE COME WITH ME
they can also use bees to find explosives
so I think added a bunch of bees would help
Niteowl
have we stripped ppl of their epinephrine shots by that point?
Faux R.
can't have bees without bears
frohman
guy with uzi, dogs, bees, fondling from minimum wage earner, magic naked ass-viewing box
Faux R.

frohman

and no shampoo
cheesoning
