Silicon Valley's Love-Hate Relationship With President Obama

AmiAthena Re:Happy Sunday from The Golden Girls! (131 comments)

I wasn't trying to troll, I was genuinely amused by "cosmonaut" for "confidante." Once upon a time, people would have laughed with me :/

Your heart is true, you're a pal and a cosmonaut.

That's the most beautiful interpretation of that song I've ever seen.

California Outlaws 'Revenge Porn'

AmiAthena Re:So... can they do it pre-breakup? (528 comments)

This. A million times this. Unfortunately, you can't ever *really* know a person. Some girls are victims of douches that should have been more obvious than a showdown between Summer's Eve and Massengill. Mrs. John Wayne Gacey had a rather different surprise in store.

AmiAthena Re:... Profit (528 comments)

I absolutely see your point, but it almost sounds like you'd be OK with letting the other 92% off with no consequences, just in case. (Not saying you said that at all, just that it could be inferred.) I have very mixed feelings about laws and false convictions, because it's *very* hard to know where to draw the line. Obviously, I'm against false convictions, but the debate arises at some point because we can't accept that every offense can't be absolutely factually verified, so we can't be sure what does and doesn't merit ruining the accused's life... but we also can't just decide that any offense that could be falsified gets a free pass. There's no one all-purpose, ironclad answer.

AmiAthena Re:Intent is the key word... (528 comments)

Unless the photos in question have been uploaded to a site specifically and explicitly existing for the purpose of revenge-shaming your ex. There are plenty of cases that would be very hard to nail down, but there are also a fair amount where it would be pretty hard to wiggle out of admitting that you were doing exactly what the URL says.

Either you have extraordinarily boring pillow talk, or an extraordinarily... close... relationship with your mother.
