Now, the question is of course whether he meant "hot wife" as in "wife that is attractive" or if he meant "hotwife", as in "wife that is shared with other sexual acquaintances".

@JoshuaFH: sounds like something out of Hellmoo.


Aussie MP gets slammed for objectifying a woman.
Would they have complained if he'd used the word "beautiful" or "darling" or "gorgeous" instead? Sounds like Twitter character limits striking again, but if those delusional greenies are going to be upset enough over someone complimenting their spouse that they consider voting more sensibly in future out of spite, they can be my guest. :P

... People think it's not okay to think their SO is hot anymore...

Guess we should go ahead and start launching nukes now, that's fucking insanity. I love my wife as a person but I aalso think she's hot as fuck which is in fact part of the reason I married her. Granted, not even half the reason but still. Being hot is a thing. I'm not but I compensate with a decent personality, good humor and brains. I don't begrudge hot people. It's okay to admit that every person is different.

I am suddenly reminded of Slashdot's dubious flirtation with changing their layout, and how nearly 100% of the user base basically told them "No. Fix it or we are leaving" because it was broken assed shit that could not handle arbitrary display sizes, would mangle viewing of posts, did not load half the time, etc.

Slashdot's justification was "But it looks so OOOOOLLLD!!",  and the refrain was "If it isn't broken, dont try to fix it.  You know what *IS* broken? UNICODE-- FIX THAT instead!" 

Of course, they never fixed unicode support... But they did abandon their "Beta" UI layout project.
And they actually listened and changed it back??
I guess amazing business practices like *actually listening to feedback* might explain how they're still around after all this time.  They were basically Reddit before Reddit, but without the ability to create subreddits I guess.

If only Google-Youtube and other big sites would listen, but nooo, they have market researchers and UI experts who I'm sure have very nice degrees justifying their outright awful decisions.  And de-facto monopolies so people just deal with it.

People are sufficiently vain, that if a "Clone-o-mat 9000 Personal Cloning Machine!" ever hit the market, people would damned sure be producing Mini-Me versions of themselves, just for the selfie opportunities.
Man, I'm not exactly sure what I'd do with that option.  My mind went quickly to cloning *other* people to raise, then sorta snapped back.  I guess I might not use it, but I really don't know.


I've had a trend of dreams where I'm romantically involved with amazing, brilliant women, but asexually, and apparently allowed to flirt with hot men.  Not sure how I feel about that.  I know it's a "thing", but it feels like one of those hyper-specific things people claim just to look special, and would be emotionally tricky in real life.

BBC almost sounds like it could be one of those porn category acronyms like BBW. So "Th4DwArfY1 working the BBC" could mean

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
That's not something that just sounds like one of those porn categories, it literally is one of those porn categories and your spoiler is exactly what the acronym is used to indicate.

... my wtf is how you'd avoid knowing that without like completely avoiding live action porn entirely. It seems like a pretty popular thing, near as I've noticed.

Actually yes.  Here is an old post from way back in 2014 when they tried that shit, declaring their intent to do the redesign.  Note how they try so desperately to spindoctor the epic tidal-wave of "NO, DO NOT WANT" that crashed into their comment section with their editorial updates.

https://meta.slashdot.org/story/13/10/01/1849218/come-try-out-slashdots-new-design-in-beta

Keep in mind that this also, similarly dated page quite accurately depicts the level of "No, we will pack up, make our own site, and leave you to bleed without a community if you keep on this track" that was being brandied about.

http://www.fuckbeta.com/

Eventually, the management at slashdot finally grew a pair, and abandoned beta.

https://soylentnews.org/article.pl?sid=15/02/27/1010241


Given that the community of Slashdot tends to be old sysadmin neckbeards with the actual moxxie to pull off their threat (create a new slashdot-like meeting place, pack up, and move wholesale leaving the slashdot.org domain holders high and dry without a community), I expect that this outcome is the exception rather than the rule.  Reddit is populated with more.... Normies...  and nerds of ... Other... classifications, that are not typically aligned with actually carrying out an organized threat to return the favor for getting screwed like that.

Still, the whole "Oh yeah- You know the commentary system you have used since forever, and actually works? YEAH! WE DECIDED TO SCRAP IT WITHOUT CONSULTING YOU, AND REPLACE IT WITH FISCHER PRICE GARBAGE! ISN'T THAT GREAT!?" thing was well in effect with slashdot beta when it was forcibly instituted.

Dear gods, what the hell have they done to Reddit?!
This is like, Facebook levels of redesign fail.

There's an option at the bottom of the Preferences tab that you can uncheck to make the old version your default.

... of all the places I expected to find the old pair of crutches these people were looking for, "In a small tree" was not among them. Apparently they'd been sitting on something long enough for greenery to grow over them.

Why they were sitting out in open air as opposed to basically anywhere else, to the point that they ended up as something's impromptu trellis, I don't know.

So, apparently the world record Any% speedrun for Salt and Sanctuary, a game I spent over 30 hours on during my first playthrough, is clocked in at... A little under 4 and a half minutes.

I mean, I know it's Any%, but... Fucking hell.
