On At Least We're Not in Oymyakon, Coldest Inhabitable City on Earth

I truly can't fathom anyone living here. There are so many other places to live. So many.

On Signs I Want You To Leave My House After I've Hosted You for Dinner

This could also be titled "Signs I am passive-aggressive, and not someone you should be spending your evenings with, anyway."

My list would be as follows:

1. I have said, "oh, I've had such a great time with you! I have to wake up early tomorrow, though, so I have to cut the evening a bit short. Can we do this again soon?"

Another intricate problem solved by saying what you mean.

On Coming-Out Technology, Exiting the Girlfriend Zone, and the Lesbro Conundrum

@paddlepickle Yeah, I did not agree with the advice to LW3 one bit. The other girl sounded like kind of an asshole who'd had this problem before and lacks self-reflection. And trust, I have no jealousy problems-I just think this sounds off.

On Weapons

I don't understand why doorbells in the middle of the night make people uneasy...no one is going to alert you to their presence before they break in, yes? I mean, unless they think you're naive enough to just open the door, but who is a big city would do that without knowing exactly who it is?

On A Plan for Dealing With This

@TheGenYgirl It used to be a place for good debate! Then they let the comment sections drive the content, and then the best editors/writers left, and then...well, thus is the way with any website I've ever read. Actually, minus 'The Awl', probably because their comments section is always dry as a desert, which I like.

On Befriending Your Best Friend's Girlfriend and Resisting the "One True Sex Act"

@klemay HA. You're funny. I'm not defending society, but I'm pointing out that we didn't exactly come up with this concept.

On Befriending Your Best Friend's Girlfriend and Resisting the "One True Sex Act"

I don't take issue with anything in the actual answer, but this: "It is, indeed, ridiculous that we as a society have come to define “sex” as penis-in-vagina" " It's less about 'we as a society defining' as it is about that kind of sex being the only kind that leads to procreation. Which is the absolute reason that sex exists, biologically. At all. The others stuff is a wonderful incentive for the continuance of the human race. So while I agree that we have moved past that as "THE ONLY SEX THAT MATTERS", I'm not entirely sure that our current society had anything to do with defining it at all.

And yes, of course, I'm not an idiot and I believe the other sex is still sex. No need to set me on fire.

On Ask a Dietitian: Salt Cravings, Workout Food, and Things to Eat When I'm Stressed

Salt: NOT THE CAUSE OF MOST PEOPLE'S HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=its-time-to-end-the-war-on-salt

This post contains a lot of erroneous information.

Also: most cravings are NOT traceable to a deficiency. Unless you're pregnant, then mayyyyybe, but usually not.

On Pumpkin-Chickpea-Almond-Butter Bars

PLEASE EDIT THE RECIPE. I'm a little mad now. I didn't read the comments before I made the recipe, because...why would I??
