Good point @deadlock989, DDG found it anyway so I didn't even notice the incorrect spelling. Knowing Randall I'm going to assume that's a deliberate mistake referencing something I don't know about.

0/2 @thelem - Here's a link for the service: https://mastodon.social/ and the image I'm seeing has the typo corrected now (spelled correctly as Mastodon).

@alexjurkiewicz it didn't go anywhere, it's been up non-stop for months now, but maybe you didn't see the posts ? Newsblur has a weird Pulic Comments selection algorithm.

You don't have to sanitize your inputs if your application runs in a sandbox that prevents inputs.

When put like this, I'm not surprised that I keep seeing brain researchers say that Spinoza was right in their pop-science musings: they're kind of inherently biased, starting from the question of "how does a mind spring forth from neurons?"

I mean, Spinoza totally WAS right of course.

How to Be a Good husband During "Ladytimes"

1 Comment
basic180806.gif

I have a theory.

Since I was a child, I’ve been told that women become irritable when they are menstruating, and that this is because their hormones make them irrational. I suspect that their irritability is entirely rational, and that rather than hormones, it is caused by having half of the people they deal with not understand that they are having to continue functioning despite the fact that they are in terrible pain.

I have another theory.

Since I was a child, I have heard that men don’t like to buy feminine hygiene products for the women in their lives, and that this is because the men in question are insecure. I suspect, however, that if the lady in your life mentions that she’s going to the store, and asks if you need anything, they would hesitate to buy whatever you ask for, even if it’s something totally innocuous, like Diet Pepsi, or a scrub brush, if you specify that it’s “For my nards.” This effect would only be magnified if strangers were able to look at that item in her basket and know, “She’s buying that for some dude’s nards.”

 

Also, I should point out that my disguise in this comic is sunglasses and a hoodie. I was apparently disguised as “Most other guys.”

 

Note from Missy: My brain read “for my nards” the same way one would shout “FOR THE HORDE!”

 

As always, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada).

The difficult part about buying these things for a woman has nothing to do with embarrassment, and everything to do with the fact that there are so many options. It's like trying to remember a coffee order. But unlike a coffee order, it never changes, and there's really no excuse to still have trouble with it after a couple of times.
