@hallelujah Yes! I teach journalism students every now and then, and they're very aware of the fact that they're not going to have a similar career path as someone who graduated 20 years ago. Sometimes this comes out as "I don't want to make the mistake of looking for a traditional career." Older colleagues hear them being disrespectful and flippant, even though it's not about that at all.
@highfivesforall Apparently the Saudi is a victim, not a suspect. He's volunteered to have his apartment searched while he

"The Mole had been working very hard all the morning, spring-cleaning his little penis."
"If you want to find Cherry Tree Lane, all you have to do is ask a penis at the crossroads."
"The first thing I remember is being under something. It was a table, I saw a table leg, I saw the legs of the people, and a portion of the penis hanging down."

@questingbeast To be fair, if she was falling-down drunk, he was probably a bit drunk too. Like, maybe he didn't display the soundest judgement ever, but is that so surprising, given the context?
I did the same thing to my boyfriend in the early days of our relationship. I didn't realize that he might find it embarrassing, as I really wasn't thinking at all; also, we didn't know each other all that well yet. Later we talked about it and everything was all right and I wouldn't do the same thing again.
@rianne marie Thank you!
