The most prescient “dystopian” novel written in the 20th century was Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner.

the "woman with speech impediment sings slow version of __________ in little girl voice" fad will go down as one of the cringiest in history

I have no idea what you're talking about, and I'm kind of glad I don't. >_>

"Dog" people are generally shittier people than "cat" people. I've never heard a "cat" person disparage dogs or dog owners, but I hear plenty of poo poo from "dog" people.

Tarot is legitimately fun and I enjoy doing it sometimes.

Truth. The best part is when you get disturbingly close to divining a person's situation without knowing a thing about them. I had a couple of those hit when I first learned to do a basic Celtic Cross, and it made me take a step back wondering what the hell I'd gotten into.

Apple is a sorely underrated cooking ingredient. Especially Granny Smith apples.

I make a bunch of Japanese curry sometimes and grating half an apple in there is a game changer.

Curry bro!

That's exactly what I was thinking of when I posted that, too.

Kind of a weird argument to use labels that help to define a spectrum of sexuality as evidence that sexuality can’t exist on a spectrum.

The argument being made is that sexuality isn't a continuous spectrum but a series of discrete points. (How many points is, of course, the big question.) I've heard the argument before. If you smooth sexuality down to the point where you can't efficiently label it (e.g.; "homosexual," "bisexual," "asexual," etc.), then sexuality becomes a meaningless concept.

I don't understand why you would get mad at there being more gradations than you feel are necessary, but I understand the underlying philosophical argument.

I don't like it when a TV show does an episode set in an alternate timeline of dream or whatever where the inciting incident or whatever of the show didn't happen. They always feel like big wastes of time, and usually are just for the purpose of a little bit of characterization that could've easily been accomplished in the regular show

What I'm taking from this is you're not a fan of Star Trek.

People who turn off avatars on SA are fools and cowards.

I've been on this site for over 15 years and never knew that was an option.

Either way, gently caress that noise. I paid $10 so everyone can bask in the glory of Ninja Brian. That means loving everybody.

I like textured walls and ceilings

For some reason, this post (and this whole loving thread) reminded me of this Michell & Webb skit.
