As someone who doesn't come to GT anymore and came today only for procrastination, I must say this post made me embarrassed of being away.

Congrats! You seem to be the kind of mom that people should have, so there you go! Be a mom again!

And if you ever feel bad during the deformed (alternatively formed?) phase that… » 12/12/13 12:10am 12/12/13 12:10am

As someone who went to a modernist campus abroad for undergrad, I find this list relevant only if you think college campus implies the classic Ivy-esque look. You what I'm talking about, the aristocratic one.

It is true that we are brainwashed into finding modern campi less academic, which explains why I felt the… » 11/02/13 8:01pm 11/02/13 8:01pm

Hey! I was about to post this. Good job.

I think a great link is Sean Carroll's take on it. He even posted her original banned post!

I never measured my dick. Honestly. I mean, I have a very accurate notion of its size, after all, I see it everyday.

It's not like I'm going to publish the number on Facebook, or starting writing a diary so that I can use that as a… » 9/26/13 1:29pm 9/26/13 1:29pm

1) I think mustaches have a very concrete role on the denial of self harm. You see, mustaches currently lead a century old movement of blade negation; this was handed to them by their parents, the mutton chops, and it is now being passed forward to the Millennial members of the family, the scruffs.

Why would anyone grab … » 9/25/13 11:11pm 9/25/13 11:11pm
