  1. Because the contraction and release of pelvic muscles during an orgasm can help alleviate cramp pain for some people. There are a lot of doctors who really promote having period sex. I wish your doctor had just said those words instead of the euphemistic "having a boyfriend". Ick.
  2. Your first sentence reminds me of a book I'm reading, Hench by Natalie Zina Walschots. This is actually a major premise of the book! The main character works in the office of a supervillain because she needs a job. She ends up getting harmed by a superhero and starts noting all the damage they leave in their wake and she starts to become an asset for "the bad guys". I haven't finished it yet, but it's pretty enjoyable and this crowd seems like the kind that might like a book like this! At this point I admit I won't be too sad when this show ends. As has already been said by others, it's j
  3. Wow, people have surprisingly strong opinions on Jill and Andy and what is and isn't possible in this world. I also hate the trope of less attractive man dates beautiful woman but it doesn't bother me here. Jill *thought* she was a 10 and that everyone was beneath her but living a sober life and going to meetings has improved her outlook and personality (OK, mostly) and she realized her previous dating patterns were not working for her. She didn't so much as give Andy a chance as he let her have a chance to date him. He was just as involved in this decision and was willing to walk away when sh
  4. This time I didn't love the questionnaire--I didn't feel like the people were fun, but I have to admit I really loved when he had Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep take it (and someone else I'm forgetting I think). They took it "seriously" and didn't take it seriously at the same time (they answered the questions without hesitation but sometimes had a silly (yet sometimes still thoughtful) answer). Ringo just looked like he wanted to be answering anything else. It really depends on the person he gets to take the questionnaire I think. But this question suddenly makes me wonder about things they
  5. Sure, I never disagreed. But there are consequences to free speech, and there are actually limits on it, including hate speech. A person who is intolerant to others because they are a bigot is not someone anyone needs to be tolerant of, and it's even worse when it's the president, no?
  6. No, when white supremacists, in the example Claire used, are the other side of the conversation, no, we do not have to be tolerant of that. There were not fine people on both sides. That's the paradox of tolerance I was mentioning.
  7. I don't have a quote that I actually use a lot with people, but "Euripides, Eumenides" goes through my mind from time to time! I wish Frasier was on at a better time for me--if I could find it at 10:00pm on cable I'd be able to watch an episode before bed. It was on at a good time years ago, but it's been so long since it was in a good slot (for me).
  8. I agree the time and place was wrong, but I don't blame Claire for feeling how she does, and the paradox of tolerance is in play here. Being tolerant of intolerance is not good for society. Some things you just can't reach across the aisle on. The NRA thing was weird too. You can be a gun owner/supporter and not support the NRA. They do not go hand in hand. That felt a little odd and preachy just to make a point, though I guess a lot of the episode felt that way for me, and none if it had any real teeth so the whole thing kind of fell flat. I don't know why there were never any police at
  9. Did anyone else find that Eddie Murphy interview just...bad? I feel like Trevor was fine as usual but whatever he threw out to Eddie Murphy just kind of sank. I could just be cranky from losing an hour of sleep, I don't know.
  10. Does the CW not air the entire episode? A few minutes of the show were wonky on my DVR--nearer to the end, just as Ryan asked something like "Do I look like I just got laid?" while wearing a chicken hat. I went to the CW and watched approximately 5000 minutes of commercials to get back to that point and...couldn't find it! Did anyone who watched this through the CW's site remember seeing that?
  11. I'm pretty sure this question goes all the way back to the TWoP days. I remember threads and threads and threads of frustration regarding this. I have also never understood Marie's position on this. I have photographer friends who do offer mini-sessions, but it's *still* more than 1 photo! It's pretty much how many photos you can get in in 20 minutes. Even if, EVEN IF this was a mini-session, they could have gotten one with this family, that family, whole extended family, and a few more. Even the freaking DMV lets me get a do-over photo if my license pic is bad! I hate they had to write Marie
  12. I'm from the city that was mentioned in last night's monologue where Trump had a "shout and spray" and told folks that he wouldn't have come here except COVID made him need to. And they cheered. As Stephen said, this state has been busy, especially my corner of it. It will be really interesting to see what Stephen's show will be like if the election goes against Trump. He has been the show's focus since Stephen started in 2015. While I doubt it will vanish all at once, Trump has become like a second character on his show (you know he's going to be discussed nightly) and what do you need w
  13. This is so weird. I don't blame her, but at this point it's definitely unexpected. I like Anna Faris but I agree that I'm surprised she'd give up this paycheck, even if she didn't love what the character was doing (which is only just a guess on why she's leaving). Admittedly, there could be many other totally reasonable factors, but she's not really blowing up in the movies or anything (not that there are any movies at the moment. But still.). I didn't love what they did with her character BUT I do find her and Bonnie to be the heart of the show and Anna's quips are usually pretty good and I l
  14. I think the bromance may be over (or at least for now). I think Stephen was even surprised by Christie's stance when it wasn't the stance he had before. When Christie was on other times (when it wasn't election season) I found him actually reasonable (not that I agreed with everything, but it was "reasonable"), much as I assume Stephen did. He was critical of Trump to the point that I figured he would never support him. So now...it's election time and "well, I prefer the republican stuff over the democrat stuff" was just so weak. It almost makes me wonder if someone has photos of Christie and
  15. Like Stephen, there are times when I don't (or didn't) hate Chris Christie, and then he reminds me that he is a slimy, weaselly guy. And last night just proved it, I think once and for all. I'm not saying he had to be pro-Biden, but to still want to help Trump? Ick. And he pooh-poohed all of the legit criticisms and I don't think any of his defenses about what republicans want vs. what democrats want hold any water, especially when Trump is NOT doing those things he claims republicans defend. So. Whatever Chris Christie. I hope you're not invited on again for a good long while.
