TV nudity / violence / death Show more
Fascinated that police procedurals (NCIS binge) can depict heinous violence and sex, but not nudity. The mortician constantly has bodies' chest cavities splayed open, organs everywhere. But the genitals are spotlighted so not visible.
So... a chest cavity, organs, brains, blood everywhere; shooting people in the head: cool for TV. One penis? Offensive! A female nipple? Never!
I don't understand humans.
In case you missed it, and not following along with the looming laws about to hit ad-tech, this "techie's rough guide to #GDPR" from January is an easy and enlightening read.
Frankly, after reading that, I'm looking forward to the web exploding in a couple months.
A gender reveal ceremony on the shore of a dark lake. A hooded figure reveals a sphere of smoke and with great ceremony, gestures broadly as the smoke dissipates.
All attendees nod, knowing no more now than they did before arriving. The child will come. The child will be. Eventually the child will dissipate.

Since this a different account, I should repost my old lesbian alignment chart.
So in Star Wars they explain the Sith as drawing from negative emotion and the Jedi beings stoics, but that doesn't seem like it covers the full spectrum. So I have a question to ask all you Star Wars nerds: are there force uses that instead draw on POSITIVE EMOTIONS? Are there tag team force abilities powered by friendship? Can you levitate yourself up with joy? Are there any twee jedi wearing bright pastel colored clothes and carrying pink lightsabers instead of dressing like a monk or an edgelord, going around the galaxy protecting people with force powers fueled by love and compassion like they're Sailor Moon? I think there's untapped potential here.
It occurs to me it would have been a lot cheaper for fitbit.com to just be a static website: "Exercise more."
