Don't be offended by my poor English. My French is almost worst.

See for yourself, it look pretty robust: 200 participants, control group, various motivation check...etc

Or aren't you motivated enough to check and debunk the procedure, having realized the futility of the task?

I'm more shallow than you gave me credit. I just consider that "wasting time" is pretty cool (especially when it's about time travel).

Newton wrote twice as much about Alchemy than Physics. We can regret the fact that he wasted so much time on immortality and gold transmutation, or may be.. Newton would not have found anything in Physics if he wasn't so obsessed with Alchemy.

So I guess, let's enjoy our video game and comics readings, it might bear fruits we wont reach otherwise

But nobody argue we waste our best living mind on football?

Lucky you... Botox is one of the only 3 scientific way to look young.

The other two are avoiding the sun, and avoiding sugar... and it's probably too late for that already

It happen with wine, with tea, chocolate, vape/cigar... it is like any mundane addiction go through those kind of spin. Yeah we just need caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and nicotine, but let's be dandy about it

It's just a retell of the alien movie story. No scenario to create: An alien is attacking (the one from the movie) and laying eggs. Period.

You dont even have to gave it proper characteristics, it's just about scaring the players with an evasive powerful unexpected foe striking and disappearing in a heartbeat.

Oh I though Rt, was Reuter.. I was tricked.. at least it's a funny story

My best experience as a player was playing the scenario of Alien (the movie) in a setting without alien... surprising, until we found the eggs (and it clicked ) and we all died soon after.. My guess: it work with any horror movie transposed into any normal setting.

As a GM the most fun I saw my player have, is letting them save the life of a godlike figure (Elric of Melnibonée in the game of the same name) when they were newbs with 2 adventure on their belt.

And they wielded the most powerful (and dangerous ) weapon of the world for a few round of combat.. it make their day... until it corrupted one of them

It worked.. because Elric is nothing without his weapon, I dont see it happening with Elminster.

Have good fun in your new city

It's not about changing advertising business model.

It's more about feeling better.. and telling our own truth (it's hard to be fat, black, mutilated, trans..) should not be censured because "body positivity attitude"

    Nothing has changed in how most people feel about themselves; instead, it’s simply become very gauche to articulate any of those negative feelings. That wouldn’t be very body-positive of you.

But I'm biased against any "positive" thinking since that :

Even more biased against Negative thinking. But the opposite of Negative self-talk, it's not positive: it's objective/realistic thinking.

I still think the article fall apart if you acknowledge that submissive male exist.

I don't see your data, the abstract say nothing about submission proportion in male and female.. but the :

    2.2% of men, 1.3% of women said they had been involved in BDSM

make it feel that female are under-reporting (almost half as much) about the subject than male.

At least the article is right about something: people lie about their sexuality.

The author seems to not little about BDSM.

I dont know much... but I know it's a kink of very powerful woman. They actually control the interaction and the amount of humiliation/pain they desire. The "master" is just a tool.

And the author ignore the fact, that submissive male are common.. and usually are very powerful people, also very directive on the pain/humiliation they want.

The fact that 50 shades, apparently a bad depiction of BDSM, got so much success, might actually mean something. But I wont trust the author with analyzing it.

For once I seems to know something Klein ignore! Onan was a biblical character, very alone.. and Candaulism come from the King Candaules who liked to have his wife taken before his eyes
