It depends how long it lasts. Snow typically doesn’t last more than a few days here. But it’s supposed to stay… Read More Geek Girls Rule! #820 – Curse you, Weather!!!

So the Geek Husband What Rules brought this up, and then immediately got grumpy because I over-thought it. Like a lot. He wanted me to make a blanket judgement of one over the other.

As we all know, I spend a lot of time watching horror movies, and arguably more watching horror documentaries. And it’s a truism of both horror and humor that a large part of what makes them work is surprise. But if that is all you have, then it only works once.

So this story was brought to my attention by someone in the GGR Discord server: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/how-to-know-youre-not-insane-and-how-a-cards-against-humanity-staff-writer-was-fired-40fe07fbbfe4 A Black writer for Cards Against Humanity was gaslit, silenced, and then forcibly committed after his bosses there convinced his family that his being unwilling to be silent in the face of their racism was a mental breakdown. … Read More Geek Girls Rule! #811 – What Will Make Me Quit You.
