I would probably have to say my Dealing with Death series. There's a lot of me in them and they're actually stories I'm happy with(unlike many of the others I've written) so I think I'd put those there.

But if you just want a single one then CopyCouple is the one. Classy and.... well, go read it. I don't want to give anything away.

Topic Practical Nonsense. Samsung loose suit, to pay $1 B to Apple
Posted 13 Sep 2012 04:34

Be noted that this is just one ruling in the US. Unless Samsung appeals then it will only be valid in the US. And Apple also lost the exact same lawsuit in Japan I believe, because Samsung proved that Apple had nicked the design from someone else first.

Topic Unserious dom/mes
Posted 12 Sep 2012 18:29

I have what I guess is a rather important question

In every community you'll have unserious people joining. I'm guessing that with the BDSM community there is a chance that people that aren't true will join, and I'm then thinking in particular dom/mes that are attracted to the lifestyle not from the bond formed between boss and sub or the sex play, but their desire to control. They have no desire to create a safe environment for their sub, all they want is to satisfy their own cravings.

Are these people easily spotted? What is done once the serious members spot that there is one amongst you that only wants the control and needs it like a junkie needs heroin? And how do you help the sub that has been the victim for an unserious relationship?

What are the signs of an inexperienced or bad dom/me?

Topic Using your freedom of speech
Posted 12 Sep 2012 12:09

Maybe I should have specified it even more in relation to these last cases. If I go out and make more Mohammed drawings with a Norwegian flag on them, post them online under an anonymous name and never mention to anyone that it was me who did it, then I won't be criminally persecuted because I did nothing wrong and if I'm good enough the radicals won't find me so I'll be safe.

But in light of recent events, I know that there will be reactions, violent reactions and most likely the reactions will hit Norwegian embassies/installments in the Middle East, people who had nothing to do with it. Shouldn't I then feel reluctance in posting them, from a moral point of view. What is the most important; my liberty or my moral?

Topic Using your freedom of speech
Posted 12 Sep 2012 09:11

Most of us in the Western world have the luxury of freedom of speech(with reasonable limits). We can say, write and make pictures that says and expresses pretty much whatever we want without running the risk of criminal prosecution.

But, as we have seen, our usage of this freedom can have consequences. The Mohammed drawings made the middle east go bonkers, Theo van Gogh got shot after a movie he made and now a Muslim critic movie(which from what I've heard is one of the worst movies ever produced) resulted in a consulate being stormed and 4 people being killed.

I'm not out for a discussion on whether or not Islam is a peaceful religion, that they're over sensitive or anything like that. We've had that discussion before and we'll probably have it again later on, but I say we leave that for another thread.

My question is; do we abuse this right without thinking about the consequences? Do we just say whatever we want, make movies and drawings and don't think about what reactions it may cause and who it may offend?

Again, please no "Religious people are too snesitive" crap. I'm tired of that discussion.

Topic Are you Romantic?
Posted 11 Sep 2012 16:25

To me being romantic is not "just" loving whoever you're with. I'm not saying that loving someone is a small thing, I just lacked better wording.

It's a continous thing that you throughout the duration of the relationship. It can be just a simple text every now and then saying "I love you and looking forward to coming home and kiss you again", maybe leave a note in her handbag where it says "I love you=)" and then date it with the P.S. "You really should clear out your handbag" or it can be to surprise him and her with a homecooked meal or breakfast in bed.

Romance doesn't have to be big. It can just be words said or written to your partner, BUT in my book one thing is essential for it to be romance; it has to be clear that it comes from that heart and you do it out of love, not that you're just buying a pair of shoes to redeem yourself.

Nothing in the amount of control one desires or needs is unhealthy if it applies to one specific individual.



Just to clarify; are you really saying that as long as the sub wants it, no matter how much control the dom/me has over the sub it will under no circumstance be considered unhealthy?

Topic No private chat
Posted 10 Sep 2012 05:27

Can't speak for everyone else, but in my case, it was my sub who asked for this rule. Since she doesn't like upsetting or annoying people she can find it hard at times to say no to people, so being able to say that she isn't allowed to private chat with people helps take the pressure of her, since it's not up to her in a way.

I have also seen on other sites, not so much here, mentions of some subs being manipulated by people into going into private chats with them. From people using reasons like how 'they'll help the sub better serve their Dom/me' or telling the sub that it is what is expected of them and they shouldn't say no (which I found particularly disgusting to read). Being given the rule that they can't private chat stops this from happening (assuming they follow the rule of course), and like above it means the sub no longer is responsible for that decision, so they shouldn't be able to be guilted of forced into going into these private chats.

I think I can say however that the majority of Dom/mes (the ones I know anyway) who give this rule are ok with the sub private chatting or whispering with friends, so long as they know that the person isn't going to try make the sub to cyber with them.

If the sub asks for the rule then I see it.

But as I saw in the other thread, some gave the rule because they didn't want their sub to cyber with others. Is that really necessary? I feel there's no need to state a rule that extreme to maintain a person's fidelity. As I understand it(correct me if I'm wrong) a sub is to have complete devotion to the dom/me. THen fidelity shoudn't be a problem(at least in my view) if the dom/me asks for it. If the sub gets easily persuaded and manipulated to cyber with random people then fair enough.

BUT I've seen several subs who have no problem at all saying no that still have this rule put on them. In those cases it seems more like the dom/me is moving from just having a light dominance on the sub to trying to have complete control on an unhealthy level. Either that or you don't trust your sub at all.

Again, this is just what it seems like from an outside point of view.

Topic No private chat
Posted 09 Sep 2012 17:48

I'm curious about one thing. I've seen several subs that have it in their profile or telling people that they are not allowed by their Master/Mistress to private chat or whisper to anyone but them. So my question is simply; why? There are several subs who have formed strong friendships with others. Even though this is a sex site, private chats doesn't have to be sexual. What if they feel the need to discuss certain things with others that the Master/Mistress for some reason can't understand because they're not in a situation to understand it. It can be gender questions or life etc. Or just having a banter with your good mates.

This is not meant as a criticism or anything, I'm just curious, because for a person who is outside the lifestyle it seems like the Master/Mistress come off as either a massive controlfreak or they don't trust their sub, and I thought that in such a relationship(like any other) trust was a vital key in such a relationship.

tl;dr(Too long; didn't read):

Masters/Mistresses. Why no private? you come off as this

Last I heard, the gas and oil royalties are largely invested in stocks of international companies based in other nations. In other words, in the success of other societies, rather than being used to pay for the government's largess.



Partly true. A percentage is being invested into the budget every year, while the rest is invested in stocks and other companies. Now tell me how far companies around the world would get without investors willing to put their money in for the business to grow. Add to the fact that many of these businesses are in third world countries are strictly supervised by an ethics council that will advise the government to stop investing in the company if they don't follow the terms given (no child labour, worker safety etc.), then tell me how making third world economies grow is a bad thing, from a neutral point of view that is.


It still amounts to shaking down the upper class and transferring your cost of government to the consumers of the products of the oil and gas companies. So, while your government is building a big portfolio of foreign stocks, it is also raising the world price of energy.



Norway is not a member of OPEC who controls the oilmarket. They control how much oil is to be put on the market which again controls the price. Not to mention that we don't shut down the cranes unless there's fire etc and we're pumping up as much oil and gas as is humanly possible from the sea. Don't try putting the blame on a country that isn't a member of the "elite". Look to your own government instead.



The US absorbed many many economic refugees from Europe after 1850 and it was the loss of many of the productive people who were seeking economic freedom that caused the stagnation that led to the cycle of wars.

Sure. Ignore the fact the tension growing between France and early Germany in the 1870's. Ignore the fact that Germay was growing so strong that British leaders were pissing their pants. Ignore Austria-Hungary's desire to engulf all of Balkan into their empire, not to mention the Tsar of Russia who considered himself "Guardian of Slavs" and came to Serbia's defence once Austria-Hungary attacked. The family ties that were between the different royal houses in Europe and so forth. If economy was the cause, it sure as hell wasn't socialism, simply because in practice there weren't any left wing movements of note until the Russian Revolution.

And why do you think NSDAP was easy to sell? You have a nation that has been given the blame for the entire war(Germans are a proud people, and that one stung like a bitch) as well as a shitloads of factories being dragged out of the country. A massive debt to France, UK and the US as damagerepayment as well as the necessity of loans to try and build it up. Add the global depression(assume that's caused by socialism too, huh?) and suddenly you have a country with an inflation that's so big that you need a wheelbarrow of notes to buy a bread. All you need then is a charismatic leader that can find someone to put the blame on and promise better times, a Germany back to it's former glory, and voila, either it's socialism, capitalism or whatever, he's still gonna get elected.

Topic Socialism an illusion or the real solution?

To give you a point of how the different membership countries related to Brussels:
The EU parliment decides a new rule or directive to be put in to action. Some of these are good, others not so good. If a country(say the UK) is 100% against it they'll either tell the parliment to fuck off in a very diplomatic way or they'll stall it and delay it as well as they can. And we're not talking months, we're talking years, which in practice means they only pick and choose the laws they want. If it's laws that are unpopular with the people they'll just blame Brussels. This isn't a one time thing that happens every now and then, it happens a lot. A whole lot.

And Norway is not a member of the EU. We recognise that it's not in our favour to be part of the EU, especially not in these economic times. We're very socialist in mind, with free health care, free education even on university level, welfare etc. etc.

But, that be said, I think what kind of political system is the best all depends on the size of the country along with what sort of natural resources are available. With Norway, we have 5 million inhabitants and we have a shitload of gas and oil. With all the income from gas and oil it's easy to bring the level of the entire country up on a very high standard of living. A lot of the income is from taxation, not of the middle class, but the upper class and especially the companies drilling up the oil, so instead of milking the middle class we're milking the upper class and the big companies, because even if we put on another percentage on their taxes they will still make enough money for it to be highly profitable to drill up oil and gas, especially when the oil prices keep rising.

I can't speak for other countries, and it is sadly all trial and error with what political system works. Maybe Venezuela would benefit very well from a more socialist model, considering you have a lot of natural resources. What you certainly can't do is give private companies full control of the oil and free hands to work it without any taxation at all, like the ideal capitalism dictates. Then the money will go straight into international co orperations and not to the people. DOn't believe me? Look at Africa...

And 1ball; if you're referring the two World Wars then you should have a look at history and think again before you blame it on socialism. I honestly can't see where you got that from, so please enlighten me.

What you say is true, to a point, they are supposed to work for us, but as Valarie Garrett said in Nov '08, "we are ready to rule." That's the way the Proggies feel, they are rulers not public servants. Yes we are on the path of socialism , both parties want that, but the Proggies have extended the safety net to new highs of "taking care" of more and more, bailing out the UAW, spending billions and billions for what? Employment has risen, less people are in the work force now than during Carter's years. We have gone backward for 4 years, and don't tell me it's all W's fault, Barry came into office, gas was $1.84, 15 million fewer people were on food stamps and we owed $6T less. We need to support Mitt and get Barry out of the White House.

Yes, you are indeed on the road to socialism.... if the road is route 66, socialism is in LA and you just got in your 1973 VW Beetle that has a max speed of 50 mph and it has a dodgy engine. That is how far from socialism you lot are. The parties in our parliment that distance themselves from anything the socialist parties stand for are closer to socialism than the democratic party will ever be, not to mention the republican party. So don't think that you're on the path to socialism, because that's right wingers scaremongering you.

Topic Socialism an illusion or the real solution?
Posted 08 Sep 2012 10:18

What you're describing isn't socialism. It's straight on corrupt dictatorship. It really doesn't matter what sort of ideology they say they stick it, it's always the same result; the population gets fucked over while there's a small percentage that gets filthy rich and they do what they can to get more money in their Swiss bankaccounts while the going is still good.

From what I've seen of reports Chavez has pretty much exterminated everything called democracy, thus you immediately stop being a socialist. Socialism is all about giving the power to the government who in turn will use it to improve the standard of living for the people, either it's by government controlling a lot or a bit less, but the key is that single individuals and/or private companies should not be able to dictate the agenda on what's needed. The people is to dictate and voice their opinion to the elected officials. The power is in the people, not the money, and the people will get it's just rewards from this.

That's sort of what socialism is IN THEORY! This is what teachers of political ideology and so forth will tell you when they lecture about socialism. Not the way Chavez runs your country. That is dictatorship. He just calls it socialism because that sounds a whole lot better than dictatorship.

Now whether socialism is ideal or not, is difficult to say. On one side pretty much every political ideology sounds pretty damn good, but the problem is that theory always differ from practice, and especially when it comes to politics.

A mate of mine said he was sure that Obama/Biden would win. I carefully reminded him that there's not exactly a vast majority in the US that can be considered reasonable people, since there have been so much shit in the media about Obama being a muslim and so forth. That and when they look at the candidates and think "Who follows the Bible most" and pick the candidate out of that then you've got a problem. Religion and politics should be kept apart because sometimes the good of the people is not what's in the Bible.

One thing that does surprise me is how often Republicans will link a strong Washington with tyranny. Just because you have a government that makes most of the laws that go for you, doesn't mean that you're being supressed like some sort of Stalin-subject. It seems to be something that they keep spinning and make people afraid of the Democratic party, not because of the politics but because it's "obviously" going down the line that is Communism, and to all those who think the Democratic party is anywhere near Communism I can tell you that even if they managed to do everything in their program they still wouldn't be anywhere near Social Democrats.

In post above, I was wondering if we, as society, could do something to prevent such a crime as murder. Typing this now, realizing how naive that is, however if, lets say, I have dark and depressed neighbor and if I would pay more attention to her, give her more my time, maybe she wouldn't try to commit suicide.. or if in primary and high school educators would be a bit more psychologists as well, maybe they could prevent damage and discover that kid (that is potential aggressor) has physical problems that can be solved..

Better? I was trying to give simple examples in my English..

Thank you for making your view understandable! I wanna Hugs for that.

And I dunno about the statistics, but I'm quite sure that a lot of the murders aren't premeditated. Those you can't do anything about because it just happens there and then, and I think it could happen to a lot of people. And there are so many serial killers where all the neighbours go "He was the last person I'd think would kill and torture 12 people." Appearances can be deceptive and not everyone are shrinks. And some develop symptoms after school, so even if you managed to have teachers that are shrinks then you wouldn't catch everyone. I doubt you'd catch that many.

That's a tough one. But I'll give it my best shot.

Ok. South America (where I happen to live) has the potential to grow, but corruption and narcos are screwing everything up.

On the other hand, there is Asia, that little by little has been getting a reputation. And let me tell you they are disciplined. They know what they're doing and they're doing it well.

Europe has always had a complicated economy due to political issues. Some countries don't like others. Some for good reasons, others for not too good reasons.

But my guess is that we'll see the rise of the Asian beyond our wildest dreams.They don't like to brag, so they might even have a very nice pandora box in store for us to see.




Just my opinion

Asia is starting to get one big problem; luxury. The reason everything says "Made in China" and so forth is because it's cheap labour. But now the standard of living in China in the cities at least is becoming better, thus the prices go up and the need for wages to go up increases as well. This means that the profit of outsourcing to Asian companies are going down, and then they'll start looking at other possibilities. We'll see Africa and South America on the rise. Several African countries have oil and they're working on clearing out the corruption. Once that happens you'll have an industrial boom all over Africa. Companies will build factories and schools to get workers, kids will be educated and so forth.
