So with Single's awareness day coming up, I'm wondering what everyone has planned for that day? I personally have a day filled with nerd gaming activities. (It just so happens that the MTG league play thingy I joined happens on that day, and the night before is my friends and I's dnd session.) Do you plan to gorge yourself with chocolates and cry? Act like nothings happening? Or do you hunt for other singles on this day and act like for a day you are not?

The only problem I had him though was that he was going to Afghanistan.

It's kinda sad that in middle of nowhere in Finland* we are training foreigners to battle in Afghanistan.. It makes me little bit angry even.

*My hometown's barracks used to have more international thingies going on but I've heard that one Canadian officer said that he was middle of nowhere when his wife called him. So, our hometown has have less these international things going on for some strange reason.

Of course Scandinavia is the utter back yard of wilderness that Hell forgot to Canadians. Imagine, way north in the endless white death there's the Inuit territories with like, negative population; past that there's the end of the world and then the north pole, and past the north pole is the north sea, and after that you get to us. It's crazy when you think about it.

Sure you can just go sideways around across the sea instead, but that only compounds how hella far it is; you can get in trouble trying to find the direction to the direction to Scandinavia. It's much easier the other way, we just go to America and then a bit north.

So yeah, that was some right quotable sleep deprivation I had last night. It could be argued that most people recognize their biological imperatives as the basis for their sexual orientation, but I think that's lazy, letting your body do your thinking and feeling for you. As conscious creatures, we can develop tastes, choose to break tradition and all that. In short, bisexuality is a state of mind. To me anyway.

Sounds like someone isn't secure in their sexuality.

And also in a closet.
That possibility would be welcomed with open arms, having such a large gap is how I perceive social energy is actually fairly debilitating to the growth of my wisdom, and that's super important to me since I spend all my time with artists, healers, philosophers, sages and people who've generally spent a large time to become in-tune and secure.

The author even likes the movie better than the book. That should tell you to give it a chance.


But if you dislike the book you probably are not going to think the author has good taste...

If the author likes a movie adaptation better than his own effing book, I think it says a lot about the quality of the movie. Overcoming bias and all.

But if the author writes shitty books, his taste is shitty thus the movie version will be shittier than the book as his taste works backwards.

Listen, guys, there's no reason to be using fake swears or arguing over this.

Everyone who thinks Fight Club was/is an awesome movie is right.

Everyone who doesn't is wrong.

We can now move on with our lives and get back to mocking single people for their distinct lack of sex.

Shitty is totally a proper swear.

Also single people can have more sex and more varied sex because they can exist in endless hookup streams whereas relationships are built around things besides continual sex ( or at least alongside it).

Not the people on here though- people on the internet are way too ugly for that shit.

Yeah, Smarty, the thing is, people wouldn't bother with having an Awareness Day for Singles if they were busy having continuous non-committal sex.

Therefore all the people posting in this thread about how they are single, are single AND temporarily (if they're lucky) celibate.

Also, shitty is a proper swear, but effin' is not.

Ple'as'e 't'he' a'ph'o'str'o'phe' i's' th'er'e f'or' s'y'm'bol'iz'ing' 'th'at' th'e' d'a'y b'el'on'gs' 't'o' th'e s'in'gl'e h'um'an 'be'ing'. 'T'he' u's'e' o'f' aph'os'tr'o'p'he' in' t'he 't'i't'le' is' g'ra'mma't'ic'al'ly' 'co'rr'e'ct'.

Not really.

Unless it belongs to a single single person, it should be Singles' Awareness Day.

Though, really, the most proper form, though not strictly followed anymore, is to avoid using the apostrophe to show possessiveness and instead the noun should be used as an attributive.

So, Singles Awareness Day is the most correct form.

must... resist...!


Okay, I dunno about you, but here's an example. I do a sketch and can't find anything wrong with it, or I can, but I'm happy with it. CJ takes my sketch and does a sketch based off it, using my position and character, but totally changing the face. If I can get past CJ changing the face of my character, even if it's not what the character looks like in my own work, and admit that her work is better, I have overcome an egocentric bias.

Maybe CJ is better about accepting that kind of thing (in fact, I'm pretty sure she is), but I'm just a dude drawing my own characters with no formal training or experience with the critique process and am personally not quite as humble about work I'm proud of.



To extend this analogy, taking the work of a book into a movie is more like using my position and character, but changing their clothes, face, and hair, then calling it the same thing, only it's clearly drawn straight over my work. If I can sit on my backside and actually say CJ's rendition of the same scene and all her alterations to my character actually improves the piece, that's being pretty well humbled.

I don't know, continual sex sounds irritating.

Hey, that sentence is true whichever way you look at it!

It does eventually cause some soreness and chaffing, this is true.

According to Guinness World Records standards, you may take a 5 minute break every hour in any marathon activity. If I found a man with that amount of refractory period I'd try to convince Guinness to break their ironclad rule of keeping records family rated.

I have sex often enough. Granted, sometimes there are periods during which I'll start to feel like having sex right about now would be nice (ie. I'm horny), but I usually get to have sex again soon enough.

Anyway, I'll probably spend my valentines day working on various school projects. Art does not take a break for love! But it's cool because I don't mind being single TOTALLY TAKEN.

If we're going to get serious here, then I'd say I'm single by choice as well. I don't see the point in getting in to a relationship based solely on "just because". And as of yet I haven't met / made enought effort to meet someone who I would find interesting enough.

Edit: Also, I'll be working assuming it doesn't snow again and keep me from being able to commute again. Seriously, I'm out two weeks in a row here. I'm just fine with working on Sunday.
