Men get to feel hornier because they’re socially supported in this. The whole of society is geared toward titillating men and discouraging female sexual desire. It’s inherent to the Nice Guy® complaint, where men are entitled to feel physical attraction, but a woman who wants more than “nice” is shallow. It’s evident in the way men and women dress, with women always mindful to wear stuff that makes them sexually attractive, whereas men have the opposite problem, and have to avoid being too sexualized lest they seem feminine. Naked women are draped over every inch of public space, and the internet is full of visually interesting porn for men, but our society barely can imagine what it would be like to try to attract a female eye. Men seem hornier in no small part because their sexuality is celebrated and codified. It’s easy for men to know right away how to be sexual, whereas women are still largely expected to figure it out for themselves—-and even that’s a recent invention, because pre-feminism, women were mostly just expected to do what men wanted.

But even with the small amount of freedom we have, it’s worth noting that a 30-year-old woman who admitted obliquely to having had non-procreative sex in Congress created a month long, nationwide scandal. Until that kind of pressure disappears completely, we can’t even begin to measure what the “natural”, unadulterated female sexuality would look like, and how it would compare to the celebrated and constantly titillated male sexuality.

Either way, stop blaming sex for misogyny. If all men wanted was women to fuck them more, the English language wouldn’t even have the word “slut” in it.

But your best friend is still your best friend. Even from half a world away. Distance can’t sever that connection. Best friends are the kind of people who can survive anything. And when best friends see each other again, after being separated by half a world and more miles than you think you can bear, you pick up right where you left off. After all, that’s what best friends do.

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.

It is a great idea, but someone who’s deathly afraid of balloons popping like me , this will be a big nightmare.

This extension really does seem to help with reading long pieces of text on a laptop or mobile device screen; apparently I read 27% faster with it! It’s a pretty interesting, yet simple, concept. Give it a try, might help ya.

Get it here

this could have made research projects so much easier. I could never get through online articles.

do you realize how much more i would be inclined to read and study a textbook if they were printed like this?

holy shit I would actually be able to read again

this fascinates me. apart from the obvious benefit of having a visual indicator of where the next line starts, I think it also creates the illusion that paragraphs are shorter. or at least more manageable bite sized pieces.

my fave thing about graphic design is typography, creating spaces of text that are legible and pleasant to read. and I’ve many a time been overwhelmed by large masses of text. so… I dunno. this is interesting.

i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills

Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide. 

Holy shit

Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.

My wife and I have actually had very extensive conversations about Foxface. Specifically, my argument is that Foxface is in love with Katniss, or had another reason to want her to win, or survive.
Foxface excels in subtlety and observational awareness, she is always aware of where the other players in the game are, but when ever Katniss is in trouble, Foxface shows up to show her the way. She shows Katniss how to bypass the mines at the food cache. She shows Katniss that she can make it to the “feast” and back out safely.

But there’s a question. Why would Foxface steal a handful of berries from Peeta? She was hungry? But she could just harvest her own berries, without needing to potentially reveal herself. I find it hard to believe Foxface would steal 20 berries, when Peeta just showed her what the bush looks like. So the argument is, she wanted to kill herself, to save Katniss, and Peeta (since she knows two can survive). But why not just go eat her own berries? At any point during this whole thing?

My argument is that she ate Peeta’s berries for two reasons. One, she wanted to show Peeta that the berries were poisonous, because she didn’t want Katniss to lose him. And, Two. She wanted Katniss to know, or have the opportunity to deduce, that Foxface was in love with her. There’s any number of ways she could kill herself, but she did it publicly, revealing that she’s not only been following Katniss and Peeta, but to put the question in her mind: Why steal 20 berries from Peeta?

Why?

This is a fascinating theory.
