A slicer, but not specifically a meat slicer.

A 24k Kate slicer indeed. I thought the lovely yellow squash I was slicing was tall enough to hold on to without danger. I was mistaken. (Alton Brown is my cooking God, so I don't know what I was thinking...)

And that just made me imagine a bluegrass band destroying their instruments at the end of a show.

Let me guess, you read the comments on a story about the SCOTUS decision on gay marriage?

PS. You probably shouldn't do that.

Seriously has there ever been a time where it was worth reading the comments?

I've a cousin I've never been particularly close to. I "friended" him on Facebook at the behest of my late Ma, but blocked him from my news feed, as his politics took a pretty hard right turn after college. I took a little hike over to his page to see what, if any comments him or his buddies made.



Holy cow!

Up until now, his comments (to me, at least) have been of the "Hate the sin, love the sinner" variety.

Well, let me tell you, the gloves have come off. Bar the doors boys, the barbarians are at the gates!!! They have gone absolutely ballistic over this.They truly believed that the SCOTUS was going to punt this back to the states, and they feel absolutely betrayed.

The issues-oriented sites I regularly visit generally have very civil and well-thought out comments, though I certainly do not agree in full with them. But then, I don't read the comments to get affirmation of my thoughts, but to hear other perspectives, so I expect to find things I do not agree with.

I doubt anyone here advising against reading the comments is doing that to protect people from perspectives they disagree with.

Yeah, we advise against it in order to protect your sanity. Ever here of the theory affectionately referred to as GIFT?

:sigh: If sci-fi writers foresaw the Internet, they probably foresaw it in a fashion similar to Gene Roddenberry: that it would enable different classes/races of people to communicate with one another and in doing so, be able to appreciate and see other points of view better.

My Head Canon regarding Avengers 2: While accessing the Internet, Ultron stumbled onto comments relating to an article on race relations. Because nothing makes you want to nuke 'em all and let God sort 'em out like those comments.

I also wouldn't be surprised if recent scifi writers have latched onto the idea that technological advances are often advanced for the purposes of war or porn and run with that.

The RISFC used to have a Hugo-award-winning artist as a (founding!) member; he was a delight to talk to at the meetings. Alas, over time, his e-mail persona devolved to GIFT levels, and when people (including lifelong friends) called him on it, he... well, let's keep it at, "he and the club mutually decided to part ways".

Before glaring at the person next to at the gym for playing music too loudly, you should check to see if its just background music from the podcast you are listening to which is only being broadcast in the left channel.

Ouchie, Dutch Angua.

My TISHTTM: If those sidewalks are sticky, perhaps it's best not to walk the dog that direction.

TISHTTM: When getting out of your car at a store or whatever, just take a quick second to look down and see if there's anything on the ground you don't want your foot to land on...
