  1. Most people from Brazil speak Portuguese, so if looking to get along with them, knowing a little of their language might help — stereotype. (No, reject that stereotypical thinking and walk up to them and persist with speaking English in their face). Many of those from Islamic countries and those from Jewish descent don’t eat pork, so if you want to invite one over for dinner to make friends, don’t cook pork since there’s a higher likelihood that eating such is against their convictions — stereotype. (No, just be non-stereotypical and cook the pork and let them feel bad for rejecting). How ridiculous will if get? We use understanding of people’s values and culture to find out how to work with them all the time. It’s only negative stereotypes that are a problem. After all, this is the daily banter sub forum.
  2. Please don’t wrongly think by posting this I am supporting negative stereotypes. Fact is different nationalities have different characteristics that often are associated with them. For instance, I’ve learned through experience with several people that if a manager is Italian, loyalty and perceived loyalty most likely is the most important factor of success working for them. What do you think of a manager is Polish? French? Any other nationalities you’ve noticed have specific values that can be used as pointers for success working with/for them?
  3. Maybe write your congressperson? Just kidding!
  4. Naked gardening sounds pretty silly to me. And why do it? Just to offend people who wish you wouldn’t?
  5. Well if it ever was officially a thing it’s not now. But taking a few stories of isolated incidents in the workplace may not be an indicator it used to be a thing. Think about all the other “things” that used to be okay. A consensual sexual relationship with an employee, forms of racism, all kinds of jokes, all kinds of unsafe work practices. Why wouldn’t spanking have been “okay” then and why would it have not happened? And when these things were either okay or tolerated, they may not have been widespread but there were more stories of them. A banker in China recently was fired for spanking all his employees for failing to meet quotas! The British military used to do it.
  6. Oh sorry if some felt I was asking for medical advice. I am actually totally fine with my own health currently. It was just an interesting thing thing to think about.
  7. One thing related to this Chinese virus is the estimates (yet to be proven) of how many have gotten the virus and cured from it without knowing and without intervention. Another recent discovery is the problems with clotting that seem to be able to occur even after people have seemed to have cured from the disease. This might lead one to believe that perhaps in time they will or should be recommending certain home treatments that may be safe to do as a precaution against this clotting risk, for people who haven’t been diagnosed. (Professionals only please), what might you think they may in time recommend?
  8. I’m becoming less convinced that it’s possible to have these stay at home orders and shut the economy down and have a improved outcome as a result. By the economy, I don’t mean luxurious prosperity so much but the engine that allows people to meet their needs. Look at what’s happening with Tysons foods. And there’s no reason to believe that this won’t happen again in factories producing essential food. So they shut them down every time there’s an outbreak and we are likely to see food shortages as a result. This on top of the people no longer able to afford food. I’m afraid it’s possible that the sad reality may be that this virus will keep swimming around while we will have to continue with our lives.
  9. Maybe this forum is different from what it was in 2008. Most wouldn’t have a problem with the op for what s/he wants or doesn’t want. There’s a few, and I ran into one recently, but not many. I think many don’t think spank and go is good or ideal, even some of those who may be accepting of it because they’ve been so long without finding anything or are just novices making mistakes. To those who do think it’s good, we’ll just hope you are able to stay safe.
  10. Wow this is crazy. Where did s/he get the time for this?
  11. The workout time can be made more productive if you find an audio book with some productive topic to listen to while you exercise.
  12. People were smart. They bought all the white rice our first. The past few weeks, I’ve noticed that apple cider vinegar is sometimes in short supply. Word must have gotten out that the stuff might strengthen the immune system. I just hope it’s people taking it for themselves and not to resell at bloated prices.
  13. There’s a few services online, where for $19.99 you can send a pound of crap to anyone. Was thinking of sending to North Korean embassies, etc. That is, until I read this: https://allthatsinteresting.com/north-korea-human-feces
  14. First, sorry for your pain. But I’m not surprised that you found a psychologist that said you had a problem requiring more appointments and associated fees. These folks help sometimes, but often don’t. They have a huge manual with enough diagnosis’s for each of us to have one. Maybe look for a different one or more. There’s a directory of kink aware professionals. Not sure how great it is.
  15. Well I don’t think you can sign up as a supporting member to start without verification. Again, if you have been a long time ago maybe you were grandfathered in. I’m not sure how you’d pay every month without giving them address and maybe even phone info for your credit card. In my case though if it weren’t for this I might have tried the site, but from what I saw from outside with a partially verified and restricted account, it didn’t seem so great.
