A day without touch.

Oh yes, I was wondering why these weren't being posted here

To be honest, I'm not. Even on reddit (yes, I still like reddit, it has some cool stuff) I post pretty freely. I don't post about sensitive issues, but if someone who knows me looks at the comments I make, they could easily find out it's me. Frankly, it's not too important to me if someone knows who I am, since the subjects I talk about are those I talk about irl, and if I wanted to post while remaining anonymous, I would. As long as you're careful with what you post, I think it's ok.

Also, on the karma system, I'm going to go against hubski popular opinion and say that it's not too bad after all, as long as it's only reddit and its clones. It leads to a rise in popular opinion, so you can study what most people of a certain demographic think, like, and hate.

Oppenheimer's speech after the Manhattan project was amazing.

I don't get it, Sanders is running mostly for that issue.

The professor looks like she doesn't know whether she's amused or annoyed.

That's fucking disgusting. There are people who actually support him...

Two shots when Carson says something ridiculous about slavery.

I open my eyes again. This is strange. "Françoise," I utter. "What?" "We won't fuck today." She opens her eyes again. "Is that a question?"-"No." She looks into my eyes, and asks "Why not? No rubber?" I kiss her forehead and reply "It's not that. I think that this is enough. It's a new feeling. Sex would just turn it into lust." "OK," she says, "Lunch?" I smile, and agree.

I get dressed, get my coat, take her hand, and go outside. "I want a kebab," she says, "That stand's the best. Hey, Ahmed!" I look towards the stand. A standard stand, here in Marseille, plain, with a green tarp, and some stupid name. Ahmed looks at us. He's balding, with glasses, with olive skin. The place reminds me a lot of Mexico City's taquerías, who became so similar to these that even their owners look exactly the same. "Hi, Fran, how many do you guys want?" "Two, with fries please." As I eat, I look around. I still have no idea how I got here. "Where are we?" I ask, "We're in the 9th" she answers. I sigh with relief, it's a safe place, and I can get home quickly.

Françoise looks at me, and out of nowhere says "I think you should go home." Surprised, I ask "Why? I thought we were having a good time." "We are, but I really think you should leave." I look at her, puzzled, and ask "Well, can I at least have your number?" "No." We look each other in the eye for a while. I kiss her, for the first time, and leave.

Kind of. When I actually eat popsicles my teeth don't hurt, but when I eat ice, they do. I still eat a lot of ice.

LA FEMME- Psycho Tropical Berlin French band, I've seen the genre described as psychedelic noir, which I think fits perfectly.
