  1. Just use yellowsub's recipe. It's essentially Osso Buco, except you're leaving the vegetables whole after cooking, and the meat is finely chopped. I would go with lamb shoulder for this prep, because it's cheaper and has plenty of fat to break down while it braises. Serve with any delicious bread.
  2. This: http://www.bma-wellness.com/papers/Addiction_Lies_Rel.html Pretty much spells it out. Though from the perspective of those who have to deal with addicts.
  3. haha! Didn't even see it.

  4. I already beat you to that one. :p

  5. What if the car is black?
  6. I guess I'd have to google a proper definition of "intimacy", to rebut this, but I'm lazy. I have not found vulnerability to be exploitative. Sometimes, yeah, but mostly no. I also consider any relationship outside of blood family, to be mostly transactional, though no one directly bargains.
  7. Intimacy is a byproduct of vulnerability.
  8. rage inducing!

  9. Try checking out Fetlife.com, or if you're brave, there's always craigslist. Though I remember reading somewhere that there were higher STD incidence rates associated with CL hookups. ---------- Post added 06-22-2016 at 12:44 PM ---------- I have 2 play-partners at the moment, so being prepared is essential.
  10. There's nothing creepy about being prepared.
  11. There will be all sorts of peripheral effects, when driverless vehicles go mainstream: http://fortune.com/2014/08/15/if-driverless-cars-save-lives-where-will-we-get-organs/
  12. That's why thing's like this are being discussed: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=13&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjU7OCyq7zNAhUG52MKHYUxDHwQFghhMAw&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Ffuturism%2Fvideos%2F581211105391426%2F&usg=AFQjCNHXfUbJL9zYzt_breFWU0RZnSY7WQ&sig2=MkMVUr1n33mBFXKD42hPJA
  13. Mass automation is coming. Whether we like it or not. The path forward is gonna get real messy. We will get to the point where we have to ask "If the sole purpose of working, is not earning, what work do we do? And how (or why) do we need to earn?"
  14. I'm not really sure if this is even worth discussing, but I've hit a place in my life where I am only ever concerned with "how" things are done. Simple analogy: Two people do the same thing, one is practised, proficient, efficient, smooth, easy, perfect. The other is inexperienced, sloppy, rushed, cobbled-together, in other words, shitty. In both cases, the task is accomplished. I always prefer the first option. I am not impressed by people who choose the second option. Society tells us we should praise even the shitty work, of inexperienced "doers", because they are "trying" and learning something new. Even though I see the value of that educational process, I cannot look at their result and praise it. I can only see the result for what it is. This is becoming a problem for me. No one seems to care about results, but I can't overlook them. Being too-concerned with the qualitative aspects of every outcome (and being objective about it) is not received well. Ever. By anybody. I'm not trying to increase my social capital, or make everyone happy, I'm just wondering how I got to be this way, and why so few other people share this particular perspective.
  15. You're only partly right according to me. I do use masturbation as a form of release (also great for migraines btw), and I do like that it's largely passive, because: In the sexual marketplace, I (the male) am often expected to somehow to "earn" sex, by proving myself "worthy" of whatever set of criteria a given woman holds. And that is a lot of effort, for no guaranteed "good" return. I might get laid, but the quality of sex is a total unknown. So I might spend a good deal of energy, "earning" something I don't even particularly enjoy that much. So in this case, the passivity really just saves me the trouble of potentially wasting my time (however, with potentially freaky partners, I most definitely do put forth the effort). Regarding the "release", I often masturbate because I want off, and don't want to have to consider anyone else's satisfaction. I can take care of myself in ten minutes or so, which is something I really don't want to share with a partner, because I feel that if we're gonna fuck, I at least owe them a reasonably long session. I've had partners criticize the fact that I will still masturbate in a relationship, and I've simply told them "you don't want that. Unless you're gonna tell me it's was somehow the best ten minutes of your life." When it comes time for actual sex, with humans, I like to have plenty of time, be rested and fed, and generally capable of making it worth their while. I have also found that this increases the odds of a return visit. So you could say that jerking off, is for me, whereas, sex is for us/them. Two very different approaches.
