That sounds hilarious, I would play.

I used to play with real live humans in the city but now I travel every weekend.

Also Starcraft 2 has an excellent mafia mod so I played that many dozens of times.

Mongoloid actually refers to people with Downs Syndrome, so it's racist and ableist. Yes I'm going to say that unironically, get hosed if you want to start poo poo over that.

It's also a DEVO track with a killer riff but somewhat-embarrassing lyrics.

Apparently it was used to describe the pathology of Downs syndrome as an actual medical term. Just like idiot, imbecile, and moron were medical terms to describe people with varying degrees of mental disability.

Yes, it's not an appropriate word to use and I wouldn't condone it, but that's how this works. The word is used medically, gets picked up by laymen and used as an insult, then can no longer be used medically because of the negative connotation, so the medical community has to find new words to describe medical conditions.

Technically calling someone an "idiot" should be offensive to people with profound mental disability, but nobody gives a gently caress anymore.

a lot of people do, and a lot of people hate "crazy" now

This is why I don't really understand the PC movement. The only reason to be offended by a word is if it's true, and if it's true then you should own it. Having people point out your weaknesses shouldn't prompt you to scream at them for discriminating against you, rather it should present an opportunity for you to address how you feel about the label.

Then again, people are pretty loving weak and pathetic sometimes.

God, being a misanthrope feels good.

I think this loses some impact when the etymology for mongoloid in reference to downs is that "they look like mongolians" and in the 60s they stopped using it because it was too racist for even that period of time

Oh, it's racist as hell, I'm not denying that. I'm just pointing out that it's just words, and if you call someone an idiot, moron, or imbecile it should be offensive for the same reasons.

I don't delete them, that's the thing that sits there if you have no unread private messages. So I sent myself a private message to never read.

I just crushed my index finger between a ribbed pulley and a belt. I was checking the belts tightness after I had just tightened it. My finger got crushed and the only way to get it out way to complete the revolution of the pulley. When my finger broke free of the pulley it had crazy indentations. I've been icing it since and I didn't break it but I think my nail is going bye bye.

It coulda been worse though, coulda lost my finger.

I like the way you related the sequence of events. I kind of handle other people being in sticky situations the same way.

If one were to visit the Higher Pictures Gallery in NYC starting from the 28th through the next 5 weeks, you will see my artwork hanging on the walls. Go, marvel at how people could consider stick figure renditions of famous photographs art and then come back here and talk about how much you hate me.

I'm not kidding, these are actual stick figure drawings on index cards that are going to be framed and sold. I really have no idea how people outside the photography world are going to read it.

I think the best thing to do is spend more time imagining their reactions. You only have 1 more week and it's best to have all your bases covered.
