I'm not the aerobics instructor.

On Who's the Squarest-Jawed of Them All?

I don't think it'll be that bad. Kind of an odd choice, but nothing to get all bent out of shape about.

I can't read the alt text without hearing Gerald Finley's voice.

On Justin Timberlake, "Take Back the Night" (...)

@Gulf of Finland And, you know, the thing about a Timberlake... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.

On Come Sit By Me: A Literary Alternative to Missed Connections

This is a nice idea in theory but good fucking god I don't want anyone to talk to me while I'm reading.

@Judith Slutler @georgina sorry to throw armchair diagnoses out there but perhaps he has a touch of Asperger's?

Yeah, I agree with Judith Slutler. Can we not call everyone that's slightly socially awkward autistic? Being a jerk doesn't mean having Asperger's any more than having Asperger's means you're a jerk.

If you have to be sorry to throw it out there....don't throw it out there.

On Did We Live Up To Our Yearbook Pages?

"Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever." Napoleon

I was never very social. Also, the picture looks nothing like me. FITTING.

@Cat named Virtute You're right. I probably shouldn't change anything else now - there have been almost 500 responses! - but you're absolutely right. I apologize, non-binary (or genderqueer, or similar) should have been an option. I knew I should include something to make it more inclusive, so I'm hoping that the write in field will cover anyone that doesn't feel the other fields are right for their identity.

Should there be future survey map things, the gender question (if present) will be more inclusive.
