Yeesh. Getting all philosophical now. Ideally the first, but are these even mutually exclusive? Can we not express love by fulfilling the other person's physical needs?

Wonder how many of those 'Kylo' names were at the mother's insistence?

At least they have a unique name that no one will know the provenance of by the time they grow up (I'm kind of assuming Kylo Ren won't survive past Ep. 9 and he is nowhere near as memorable a villain as Darth Vader). Could pass for a variant of "Kyle", too.

Scott, if your man-child likes 'dark roast' coffee, he might want to try some 'Community Coffee, dark roast. It's a regional brand roasted in Louisiana and is just chock full of robustness. It can be order through Amazon or the Community Coffee online store.

So who needs a drink?

Hmm. I'll point it out to him and lie about the source (sorry, strict rule that family doesn't know about this place or my presence here).

Now, I think some Long Island iced tea would go down good, esp. since I just finished reading through part 1 of my new story which involves the drinking of it.

There's 4000 boys named Kylo? From Star Wars? The kid who kills his father and turns to the dark side?

Actually, it was the other way around. He had already gone to the dark side when he killed his father. But, yeah, I saw that and shook my head. "Luke" and "Han" I could see since both are real names and are both heroic characters. Ditto "Ben". "Leia" could probably pass though the source would be obvious with that spelling (Leah or Lea would be a close, more common analogue in English). But "Kylo"? Really?

Topic Turnout At Elections - A Democratic Dilemma
Posted 14 May 2017 13:04

It works that way in Germany too. As soon as you have the right to vote, you'll get an invitation. All it takes is being registered as a citizen. Without that invitation you can't vote, which effectively disqualifies undocumented immigrants. But like Noll already said, it doesn't guarantee a high turnout. The only way to achieve that, is to reach potential voters and to inform and motivate them.

Canada now allows Elections Canada access to the Canada Revenue Agency tax rolls. Basically, as long as you're filing an income tax return, you'll be on the voters' list and you only need to register if you've moved since your last filing. The only issue there is that permanent residents (i.e. people who have immigrated here but haven't taken out citizenship yet) also file returns but don't have a vote though you do indicate on your return whether or not you are a citizen.

There's also the issue of people who don't file but even university and college students, whose income is usually low enough that they don't end up paying anything, need to file to get certain benefits now.

Seeker, what, I say, what is a 'Tim Horoton Dark Roast' and is it available down here south of the border?



Dark Roast is just coffee that's been roasted longer or at a higher temp or something like that. Forget the details. I'm a tea geek, not a coffee geek. Timmie's brought it out years ago as an alternative to their regular coffee and it's become fairly popular. In general, Timmie's coffee sucks tastewise (or so I'm told by my eighteen year-old coffee gourmet) but everyone drinks it because it delivers a great caffeine fix.

Tim Horton's is available in the US but not in all states, though I imagine that will change with time since they merged with Burger King a couple years ago. I know they are in some border states because I've eaten at them in Michigan. There's one that I know of in Florida, but it's in the arena in Tampa so probably aimed mainly a snowbirds going to Lightning games for their hockey fix.

Topic Free Speech
Posted 14 May 2017 09:59



I don't know enough about Canada.

Suppose someone inflammatory was invited to speak at one of your public universities? Would public safety be a good enough reason to cancel? What about postpone? Would public outcry have any affect?

It has happened, so yes. Is it a good enough reason? Apparently the university administrators involved thought so. But it was usually due to outcry or threats from faculty and students, not the general public.

Here in Ontario (universities are provincial jurisdiction so I can't speak for other provinces), universities are kind of at arms-length from the government. They receive government funding and are subject to regulation by the government, but day-to-day are run by independent boards and Senates so the government doesn't get a say in how these things are decided. However, as government funded and incorporated bodies they are subject to the Ontario Human Rights Code and some of these controversies stem from that. For instance, a speaker who advocated treating gays as "mentally ill" would likely run afoul of the protections given LGBTQ in our HRC (yes, trans are protected in Ontario).

Topic Free Speech
Posted 14 May 2017 05:23

Free speech is something I wrestle with.

In principle, I like the idea. Better to get the crap ideas out in the open when they can be debunked and debated.

In practice, it leaves some dangerous doors open. Encouraging violence and promoting certain groups (racial, gender, whatever) as targets isn't something that helps develop a civil society.

Canada has recognized this and, under the banner of a "peace, order, and good government" clause in our constitution, enacted hate crimes legislation, though it is rarely used and frequently challenged under the Charter of Rights. I have mixed feelings about it, but it is at least an attempt to balance the right of free speech with the right of targetted groups to protection. Absolute freedom of speech, such as seems to be the case in the US, can turn into freedom of the loudest, most aggressive voices.

That said, free speech protects speech only from being made illegal or stopped by the government or through legal action. It stops the government and courts from playing "thought police". It does not mean every private organization and citizen is also bound to accept all speech. A Christian church can't be forced to let an imam speak from their pulpit (though I think it would benefit them to invite one). A private university can shut down a talk that it believes violates its values or code of conduct (public universities might be a different matter). I can kick someone out of my house for saying something I don't like. None of those violates the constitutional rights of those affected because constitutions only apply in the public sphere. IOW, your freedom of speech stops at my front door.

Hockey: 66


Interesting. So are a lot of Lushies writing about Canada's "national game" or are those who write about it more likely to use the tag? One of my stories mentions hockey (a woman having a gangbang with her hubby and his buddies after a playoff game) but I don't think I bothered to tag it as "hockey" because it is peripheral to the real action of the story.

In honour of Canada's national game, I demand this place start serving Tim Horton's Dark Roast. I'm sure Bertha is up to the task. Meanwhile, a cuppa joe with some BBB would start my day nicely, Rump.

BTW, sticking with hockey, Ottawa won game 1 of the Eastern final last night. Damn it, we are getting so close to having a Canadian team play for the Cup I can almost taste it (But I'm trying not to get too excited yet. Pittsburgh is, on paper, the better team.) Given that no Canadian teams even made playoffs a year ago, having one in a conference final is, in and of itself, a major turnaround.

Offspring should be out of bounds. They didn't run for office.

Topic Presidential offspring - out of bounds or fair game..?
Posted 13 May 2017 12:29

First off, if a politician's kids are under 18 I think the parents have a responsibility to keep them out of the limelight to some degree. Even Obama seemed to be using the girls as props at times so it was sometimes hard to criticize the press when they did go after them. I much preferred how our PM Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen pretty much kept the kids off the radar. I'm not a big fan of Harper from a policy standpoint, but he did seem to be very on the ball in terms of his family (and he fostered kitties in our "White House", which earned my ever-lasting admiration on that front).

For adults kids, if they are clearly trying to keep themselves out of the limelight and don't try to use their parents' position to further their interests, then I think that should be respected. Again with a Canadian example, our prime minister Chretien had adult children when he was in office in the nineties and other than his daughter's wedding (which attracted attention because she married the heir of a powerful Canadian business dynasty), I don't recall them getting discussed much at all. Similarly, his successor Paul Martin (who had been finance minister in Chretien's cabinet) handed his shipping business over to his sons and then they faded from view after that. There was a bit of a fuss about whether he still had a say in the business (we are quite strict about blind trusts and conflict of interest in our cabinets) but not about the children themselves.

HOWEVER, the older Trump kids were all involved in his campaign, his daughter is working in the White House (official position or no) as is her husband, and the boys have clearly made use of their connection to him in furthering the interests of the company they now run. So, all bets are off. If you associate yourself with your parent's administration, you are painting a bullseye on your ass and should expect it to get kicked now and then. I hope the press would leave Barron and Tiffany alone (Barron's underage and Tiffany's largely keeping out of view) but Eric, Don. Jr., and Ivanka are fair game in my book.

Topic Ever Been to a Sex Club, Hotel Take Over, House Party, Couples Swap, Threesome?
Posted 13 May 2017 08:27

Never done any and not all of them appeal to me. A couple swap or a threesome would. Not sure about the others. They seem to me like they would involve more anonymous contact and I'd feel more comfortable with someone I get to know a bit first, which would be more likely with a swap or threesome.

Topic Potus45 - Will he be impeached?
Posted 13 May 2017 07:51

I think it would be possible to get some Republicans on board, with the idea that Pence would take over as the Constitution prescribes.

Pence as president for three-ish years would be a miserable outcome. Better than Trump, I suppose, as I don't necessarily think he's in the pocket of a foreign power. But that is a low fucking bar.

OTOH, he's an evangelical Christian who has supported, even signed, attacks on LGBTQ rights claiming he need to do so to defend religious rights (what about the religious rights of faiths like UU'ism and liberal Christians that support LGBTQ rights?). Were I am American, I'd want them both gone. But then we're down to Paul Ryan and...

You most likely need a new executive branch AND a new legislative branch to undo this mess, don't you?

Topic Which kind of Point of View would I need to use?
Posted 13 May 2017 06:09


Instead of describing what's happening in a story, could I have a story based on character dialogue, naughty, sex scene. I don't always want to base a story of what's happening, So what kind point of view would you recommend? I tend to stick with what works. It is the third person point of view. Is it possible to mix third person point of view and first person point of view? I heard someone tell me that if I did it, would mess up the story. I started with the third person but not sure if I should switch to the First person for a certain part. Just so i get it right when a character is talking in a story do I always have to space it to a new paragraph? I know it starts with this " and ends with " I seen some stories you didn;t really need to space it when a character is speaking in the story.

Switching between first and third gets confusing unless there's a chapter break or something to separate them. You can't just randomly switch from paragraph to paragraph. For instance, I know I have read stories and novels (can't think of an example right now) that alternate between third person narrative and diary excepts or the inner thoughts of a specific character but they always keep them well-delineated. Now, when it comes to literature, never say never. Someone has probably found other successful ways of mixing the two. But they would have to have been far better writers than most of us to pull it off.

As for dialogue formatting, each new speaker must be in a new paragraph. You could have that character's actions in the paragraph. But when the speaker/actor changes, change the paragraph. So:

"Get down on you knees, baby, and give me some head," John said with a wicked grin. He pushed his shorts down to release his eight inches of man-meat.

"Oh yes, baby, I love eating your big cock," Jill replied as she sank to the ground in front of him.

I really want to see 'Ludwig II' with English subtitles but it doesn't seem to be available.

A movie about Ludwig II of Bavaria? I am down with that. I'm a fan of the German composer Richard Wagner and Ludwig was Wagner's patron for the last part of the composer's life (which is why Wagner built his theatre in Bayreuth, which is in Bavaria).


Aaaand after looking it up in IMDB, I see that the movie actually focusses on the relationship between Ludwig and Wagner. Now I want to find a dubbed or subtitled version, too.

I've started a multi-part story. I might be nuts for doing it. Sometimes I finish them and sometimes I don't. I'm thinking 3-4 installments, maybe.

Mine mutated into one. Didn't set out to make it multipart but after the introductory plotty bits and first big sex scene, I could tell that my plans for the rest would push it well past the 10K limit so it's now in two parts (there was a logical breakpoint, too, which helped). Maybe even three, since the last bit of part 2 changes the characters and tone so should probably be its own story.

Close enough to noon. A pint, please (have you ever cleaned the tap, BTW?).

Topic Trump vs Nixon
Posted 11 May 2017 14:04

Nixon. Hands down. Smarter and meaner.

I've been thinking about Nixon and Trump a lot lately. Reading Hunter S Thompson on Nixon lately - a savage voice we really need right now.

From Hunter S Thompson "eulogy" of Richard Nixon (an era becoming more relevant all the time): "As long as Nixon was politically alive...we could always be sure of finding the enemy on the Low Road. There was no need to look anywhere else for the evil bastard. He had the fighting instincts of a badger trapped by hounds. The badger will roll over on its back and emit a smell of death, which confuses the dogs and lures them in for the traditional ripping and tearing action. But it is usually the badger who does the ripping and tearing. It is a beast that fights best on its back: rolling under the throat of the enemy and seizing it by the head with all four claws.

That was Nixon's style -- and if you forgot, he would kill you as a lesson to the others. Badgers don't fight fair, bubba. That's why God made dachshunds."

Yeah, anyone who picks Trump over Nixon probably wasn't around for Nixon. He'd have Trump seven ways from Sunday before Trump knew what hit him. They didn't call him "Tricky Dick" for nothing.

Topic Turnout At Elections - A Democratic Dilemma
Posted 07 May 2017 11:40



Participation, in and of itself, is crap. Imagine if 100% of the voters turned out and then made completely random choices. Hard to imagine that turning out any better, right? What's needed is voter involvement in the debate on the issues and in the selection of the candidates. If 10% of the people showed up and made wise choices based on the facts I'd be all for that.

This. Yes, a higher turnout would be nice, but it would be better if it was accompanied by a boost in voter education and engagement, else we'd just get more Trumps or worse (think Dutarte in the Philippines). Though it's likely the other way around: Boosting voter education and engagement would boost turnout since voters who know the issues, political philosophies, etc. would be more likely to vote.

Though, to be honest, I'm a fairly politically astute voter and I'm drawing closer and closer to "abstaining" as the French say. The choices just aren't that great anymore and I'm becoming more and more disenchanted with government as we do it.

I have some users on the board I admin who refuse to vote. They are anarchists and refuse to participate in a government system that they don't support. They want a more consensus and community based system. People sharing their goods and talents instead of collecting salaries and that sort of thing.
