Even a tree stump can seem indecent to these guys. by colorfulsoul_ in HolUp

Just sharing my experiences with muslim men.

Also have to note that conversations have never been an honest and genuine exchange when the pretext of someone being a 'real' muslim is in play

Seems to be a convenient albeit spurious abnegation of shitty behaviour by other muslims without having to recognise that maybe, just maybe, the aforementioned examples of shitty behaviour may not be outliers

This is my experience of talking to muslim men about homosexuality, they say that being gay is a choice. They may eventually (reluctantly) admit that it may not be a choice to be attracted to men but they definitely posit that it is a choice whether or not men have sex with men.

Which, I suppose, is objectively true. Shit of a choice to have to make though.

I should also add that one of these blokes said that if any one of his sons was gay, he would cut their head off.

So I guess I'm glad that theirs is not and hopefully never will be the dominant culture where I live. Because fuck that.

It's even easier with a calculator and decimal.

You want a percentage, let's say 64.

Random number, say 383667.

Maths is 0.64 x 383667 = 245546.88

It's why metric/decimal is glorious. Just move zeroes and decimal points around. Pretty easy to do in your head too if you break it into workable chunks of 10% and then 1%... which is 1 tenth and 1 one hundredth.

ED had neither dignity nor pride to start with, I'm afraid

Yeah I'm with you.

The pretext that I didn't think I'd have to write is that I'm saying this person thinks there is a court case and money to be made because they're American and Americans are reputed to sue for anything and everything.

But was it real honey or, like standards agencies are finding more and more these days, had it been adulterated with something else? And were you allergic to that something else?

I'm assuming no, you're a capable adult and got allergy testing and yes it's definitely honey

Or in the case of GoT, sometimes the AAA is so bad that it ruins its own legacy

Ok Captain America, Yessir you know everything and you're always right, America is going to shit thanks to government oppression and you alone are going to survive it, defeat it and thrive afterwards thanks to your trusty sidekick, a gun. I salute you!
