Your mention of mixed company also points to another aspect, that women must be protected from mention of a desire for bimbo-ness? Is it because the official stance of our society is for women to not be that way, yet the truth is that bimbo-ness is apparently attractive to many? To go another level down, are you inferring dehumanization? If so, why is that an unacceptable reason to engage in sexual intercourse?

You know, when you hit rock bottom, which was approximately 20 posts ago, it's not a good idea to grab a jackhammer and keep on digging.

As others have requested, I'll send you a pm. Probably tomorrow or Tuesday. The rest of tonight is booked and it's going to take a bit to parse your flowery turn of vocabulary. And multiple logical leaps.

He pretty much said he was looking for a f*ck buddy, I'm not sure what the problem is. He finds a girl who is looking for the same thing, they scratch each others itches. What's the big deal?

If I wanted to keep a blog to serve as documentation &/or mental swapspace regarding my upcoming emigration, would I sorely regret using Blogger?

Please, whatever you do, don't take this to PM. This is great. Don't take away my show. I am riveted.

Wordpress is awesome.

-2. Take this thread dominating crap elsewhere.

Who gives a crap about what consenting adults get up to, lets not refer to adult women as bimbos in the meantime.

That's obviously a definition you agree with. Don't assume that everyone else feels the same way about it.

If he's having trouble finding women who fit his particular description, isn't he, then, by definition inferring that this is the exception to the rule?

Now I'm just throwing gas on the fire. Hypocrisy.

I'm troubled by the idea that one would associate sexual appetite with intelligence? If you're seeking a partner with sexual appetite, look for an athletic, or slightly less feminine woman. Testosterone in women has a lot to do with sexual appetite. So does ovulation.

Of course, I'm nobody to be giving dating advice.

Just to point it out, for those who might not know or have forgotten: There is also a Questions you want answered (P&C Edition) thread.

I don't think there's any reason to assume that a bimbo underwent some of kind of emotional trauma. That's silly.

+1, and much less snarky than I was going to put it.

Oh, I have a question.

DROPBOX STOLE MY BABY!

That headline might be misleading, but Dropbox might have lost a document I was using with Scrivener. I want to better my chances Dropbox will not lose my sh*t so if someone can give me a pointer or two that'd be great.

If all you are looking for is sexual gratification just masturbate for God's sake. Jeez. This will also prevent treating members of the opposite sex as living sex toys.

Did it go poof or did you accidentally delete it in some spring cleaning?

Having been one, it is not fun.

I'm hoping I did not accidentally delete it. A kind Goodjer pointed out a Recovery tool within Dropbox which I'm using now. Hopefully, this works.

If I did delete it, like for good, I'm hoping I have enough rope to hang myself.

I am thinking that if you have a laptop or desktop that you recently synced dropbox to but before losing the file, if you disable the network card or turn off your router, you might still have a copy floating around on it.

I like Dropbox, but it is stories like this that remind me how precarious we perch.

https://www.dropbox.com/help/11/en for recovery from the past 30 days.

I think it prudent to do a weekly, or monthly hard back up of your dropbox folder.

I have learned there are ways to recover documents. I'm using Scrivener for a freelance project. Scrivener also saves its documents in rich-text format chunks. My latest work is still in these chunks so it will just involve some copying and pasting. Whew. Thanks for the tip of backing it up. Right now I'm digging in Dropbox for tools to do simultaneous saves to Dropbox and my computer.

Switch to Google Drive. For some reason I had a file that would only show up on two out of the three computers I was using DropBox with and nothing I did seemed to work. I renamed it, deleted it off the two working computers and added it again, nothing would work for this one file and there wasn't anything special about the file either.

I'll change it up!

I just went back and read all the synopsis (er...plural?) of the Lost episodes on Lostpedia and I totally don't understand the "sideways" flashes off the last season. Was the island purgatory? If so what is up with the 2 different stories in the last season? Does GWJ have a thread about season 6 I could not find it.

The island and everything that happened on it was real. The alternate timeline (where Jack has a son, the plane never crashes, etc.) is an afterlife where the characters are brought together to pass on to whatever comes next as a group. The island wasn't Purgatory, but you could reasonably say that the alternate timeline was in that it was a place where characters went after they died but before they moved on.

The idea, as I mentioned, was that everyone has a sort of reunion in the alternate timeline (pre-after life?) where they then go on to Heaven/Hell/Oblivion as a group because the people they interacted with on the island were the most significant people in their lives. That's why there's that big concert at the end and everyone gathers in the church: that's their launching-off point for the next world.

It's kinda lame.

What is the best/easiest way to set up a last will and testament? I have been thinking about doing this few a while now and, with the passing of my grandmother I see the importance of having things spelled out. For me I want it in writing since I'm single and haven't really talked to loved ones about my wishes.

If you look on your state's bar association website you can find a will and trust specializing attorney or a number to call to assist you in finding an attorney. A simple will does not cost much to set up, a hundred or so usually.

That was exciting. Too bad it got squashed.

Another Dropbox question. There might be a stupid made-up headline at the end of this lesson.

1) Whatever I save in Dropbox I want saved on my computer as a backup file. This backup file will be dated and will be synced with the Dropbox file. Every time a backup file is saved it is a brand new dated file. So, at some point, I'll have a bajillion backup files, which I'm totally fine with.

Sounds like you want some sort of incremental or differential backup solution. I personally use Time Machine on my Mac. Can't really say how effective it is since I only started using it a few months ago after I reimaged my laptop and my backup image was corrupted.

If I'm wanting to stream .avi DVD rips from an external drive (that's not in FAT32 format) what's the preferred method? Xbox 360, PS3 or some Roku-like device? From what I've read the 360 and PS3 both would just use the Windows Media sharing program so, aside from fan noise, I'm not sure there's much difference there. As for stuff like Roku or Apple TV type boxes, I have no idea what those can do aside from accessing Netflix, Hulu & maybe YouTube?
