The cultivation effects of sexist attitudes from a general use of videogames over a three year period from a German population has not resulted in any appreciable changes in sexist attitudes.

Saves you clicking on GamaSutra and reading a ton of pointless writing. Study shows there is NO relation, btw (nice clickbait headline which leaves the "no" out to make the headline more baity)

No shit. It's the same reason people who grew up watching Bugs Bunny cartoons don't go around dropping anvils on people's heads. If you can't distinguish fantasy from reality you've got far bigger problems to worry about than whether something is violent or sexist.

When I was 3 I hit my 1 year old brother in the head to see the stars, after watching roadrunner cartoons. Mom threw out the TV after that, and we didn't get another until I was 10 or so.

hahahaha man kids are so dumb. taking away a tv won't stop kids from being stupid. they'll find a way. i remember one time my brother suggested we play tug-of-war... on our bikes. even at the time i had misgivings about this idea of momentum, but i did it anyway. well, we both went hurtling over our handlebars. no tv involved.

i never claimed LA was any better, was just wondering if NY was as bad as they come across in the news, in particular at the lowest level of one on one interactions where that stop and frisk bullshit was blatant institutional racism.

that us vs them thing seems to be a real problem with police these days - that 'protect and serve' slogan seems to be just lip service these days where police depts seem more interested in protecting themselves and see their communities as nothing but a pool of potential criminals/enemies.

question for our NY friends - are cops out there generally dicks? just from my oh so scientific anecdotal memory, there seems to be a lot of sortof low level police authoritarianism going on out there. like the stop-and-frisk thing (how they ever thought that was constitutional...), or what creston posted, or a video of a bunch of cops verbally abusing some dude who was trying playing an innocent prank on them.

if i remember correctly, your napkin calcs were for total replacement. we don't need that. we'd just need to makeup whatever the shortfall would be for the season, which for most years would be negligible. it's only infrequent droughts that make it imperative, but most years most of said desal plants would be in mothballs which is what makes the economics and politics of them rather tricky. we could nearly bankrupt the state building these things, and then they could be political suicide when short sighted fools see they're mostly not being used, and use that as a campaign platform to push out the long thinkers.

but i'm glad jerry brown is in office. he really seems to genuinely care about doing what's best for the state in his older years above politics and i don't think he'd be afraid of political suicide if he thought this was necessary.

I actually think Google is making me dumber. Instead of remembering stuff in my head, I just remember how to find it.

on the other hand, i'm exactly the genius i think i am XD

no but seriously, i do applaud people that use the internet to better themselves even if their retention of data isn't very long. some of it will stick. and i do believe memory retention is a form of intelligence, as much so as logic and rhetoric.

my wtf moment of the month (waited until the last day)

I am not sure how I feel about this, but I have an Amazon Echo in the middle of the house, so we haev music going almost all the time. My son was hanging out, so I said "Alexa, play children's music" and this came on.....

so.....as a father....not sure if this is good or not. I mean, the sound is actually pretty amazing, and I am very impressed with the quality...but the fact that my son would listen to NIN....as a lullaby.....I mean.....how f'd am I making him out of the gate....I mean.....shit....I just don't know what to think about this....you have to hear it - it is amazing, yet.....f-d up!

nin would approve.

ironic if he didn't XD

yeah but you're more like the happy southern neighbor that talks funny and welcomes everybody with massive amounts of sweet tea. bob's more like the plantation owner that thinks he's better than everybody.

...that was a joke.

So I'm riding on the South Bay Bicycle Path - a part of my 20 to 30 mile daily bike ride -- and I suddenly notice the sand is full people with very pale skin (no tan). It can only mean one tragic thing ... Spring Break! Damn it, that means a lot people will be ignoring the signs and walking on the bike path!

oh a san diegan ey? i knew there was something unseemly about you, damn southern yokels haha.

I'm waiting to see what materializes.

the idea of Trek has always been grand, but i've always found the implementation to be rather bland and uninspiring, with the exception of a few eps here and there. to me there's no surprise that it never lasts - until they get writers and producers that really embrace the inspirational human side of the show, it'll just remain schlocky scifi that most people ignore. that's why i always hated it when enterprise and crew went down the warpath with alien race A, B, or C. it abandoned what made it potentially great in favor of cheap drama.

That's exactly why Babylon 5 is the far superior show.

preachin' to the choir bro. i've been trying to spread the gospel of B5 for years but it's sortof a difficult show to get into what with season 1 being entirely foreshadowing and buildup.

i think an RTFA is appropriate here =D

when used for containers of edibles, they use an edible lubricant.

Here's the quote from the article:
The approach also allows them to vary the ingredients of the textured layer and the lubricant to fit the properties of different liquids — for food applications, the coatings are derived from edible materials. (The company does not divulge the specific ingredients. “We use things that are, maybe, parts of foods, you’d say,” Mr. Smith said. “You wouldn’t make a meal out of our coatings.”)
I'm not sure that qualifies as "edible," and it certainly does not inspire confidence. Ricin is derived from the edible Castor Oil plant, but I sure wouldn't want it in my food.
is no one else here as big an xfiles nut as me? there's so much more material that i can think of right now to fill the show, especially post 2012. the reason they're doing it is cuz they both love the show as much as we fans, and the material couldn't have been that light considering it won multiple emmys both for cast and crew.
I hadn't heard that either of them loved the show. David left, and Gillian has just moved on to better parts. Playing Scully just seems less interesting of a part than what she's currently got in her busy schedule. Not saying they shouldn't, just surprised.

it's not a well known thing, more of a thing they hint at during interviews and such. i've watched them do interviews at various 'cons, and duchovny has said he tends to shy away from half-assed xfiles projects because he views himself as a custodian of an important part of tv history. as for GA, she's constantly bugging him to do more xfiles. like she made a joke that she could've gone on Californication and hooked up with him there as sort of a winkwink to the mulder/scully shippers. but duchovny wasn't havin' it - legit xfiles or nothing for him.

you guys are right that it went downhill after duchovny left (that was about halfway through season 7 i think). but up to that point, it was marvelous television. at its best it was visual poetry. if any of you have amazon prime, i highly recommend rewatching the episode 'The Unnatural', directed by duchovny himself. season 6 ep. 19 or 20 i think. it's free for prime members. dunno about netflix.

With New Nonstick Coating, the Wait, and Waste, Is Over

Okay, is it just me, or is the company name a bit off: "LiquiGlide?" Not sure I want to pour anything edible out of a bottle that's been made by LiquiGlide.

Get anodized aluminum cookware instead. You can use metal utensils with it. It's the way to go.


It's actually not for cookware. It's for the inside of bottles and other containers to make the liquid run out more easily instead of clinging to the bottle. It's fine for nonedibles like paint, glue, or toothpaste. What worries me is this new substance leaking into ketchup or mayonnaise and people ingesting it.

oh hell yes xfiles is back! with only six eps they better not waste any on monster of the week filler like the last movie. and i hope it's post invasion too, like mulder and scully running a resistance a la john connor.

rogue one was the name of boba fett's ship wasn't it?
