If you didn't want the job, would you have still posted asking us?
I think it sounds like a fantastic opportunity, perhaps see if the grant allows part time employment or deferring a few months? I can't speak to the strength of your relationship, but I would expect five months to be doable for most, and you would always be able to video chat at an AirBnB, no?
Go for it, it sounds like one hell of an experience.
I would suppose that bandwidth, material absorption and environmental noise would be the most important factors here. Doing it with WiFi is 'novel' and gives them great publicity, it's technically impressive if they're able to meet the posited scenarios for use, but it felt like they were exaggerating or being taken out of context.
But hey, even light is just waves really.
What a fantastic man, thank you for sharing this.
Here you go francopoli, the 8bit guy did a review on that thing a few months ago.
And if you liked this, you might like Lazy Game Reviews trips thrifting (mostly at Goodwill). I love these videos, there's something therapeutic about it, like shopping with a friend.
I love that, I'm struggling a lot with my own identity at the moment and definitely need to Glow Up. Heh. I agree completely with the clique aspect, that's something that has always put me off.
I've been reading through Queer: A Graphic History and it's been simultaneously helpful, eye opening, and not entirely unlike having my brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.
The lingo can be so obtuse, especially as this is coming from an academic perspective, but then groups take offence with the use of certain terms, others revere them as symbols of power over hated, sometimes the terms exclude people in one context but include them in another... Ow.
So here's two questions for you:
1) What lingo comes up the most in your day to day life?
2) How do you feel about the QUILTBAG (love it) community?
In context of the article, it's more about being in-the-closet versus being out. The author talks about them refusing to recognise their sexuality because identifying as straight affords them certain civil liberties.
Still, the idea of man on man sex being strictly gay is one I'm not convinced of. Historically it's been accepted as manly when giving but weak / womanly when receiving, it's outdated thinking for sure, but our concepts of sexuality and identity are something that's constantly being developed so I'm interested to see what discussion we get on Hubski about this.
