Tyrene did that thing to Stanos because of the Davos crap, and holy shit I did not see that coming. Like, what a season premiere man, I read the books and didn't even see that this could happen.

Have you read the books, though? GRRM is a terrible writer. The more they deviate, the better

Do you mean his prose is terrible, or his storytelling (including characterization) is terrible?

 

I agree if it's the former, but I find most modern prose terrible so that's moot. If it's the latter, then I have to disagree very much.

If GRRM was more consistent in his prose he'd be fine, maybe even above average for the genera.  The problem is that he'll pick up something stylistic out of nowhere and then drop it 100 pages later.  Turns of phrase that haven't once shown up anywhere before will get said by entirely unrelated characters in different parts of the world in consecutive chapters.  And then will never appear again.

 

 

That said, he is very adept world builder and knows how to build a good story.

 

 

Related: I'm way behind on the show. Like I'm-on-season-2 behind.  But I've read all the books. Basically just please don't spoil this most recent season/episode for me.  Kinda hoping to read the next book before I watch. If it ever comes out.

 

 

Edit: Oh [bleep], also I'm moving out on like Saturday into a pretty awesome house with two of my friends.  That is as long as the landlord doesn't find out my housemate just got suspended from work because he's an idiot.

Gratz on the house!

 

I feel like the turn of phrase thing plays out better in a the medium of television because there's a shorter pause and allows for a strong juxtaposition that ties the theme together.

 

I'll have to get the books at some point to read them for myself

Game of Thrones is too mainstream. Now, A Job of Chairs, that shit's a masterpiece.

The show you can't stand to sit through.

Yeah but what about the thing that sometimes can change the perspective of them when they are where and when.

I got another tattoo yesterday. It's the Dark Mark from Harry Potter. My other tattoo is "I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good." on my inner right bicep. This one is taking up almost my entire inner left forearm (so it stays true to the placement on the Death Eaters.)

Everyone on my Facebook is arguing about what people can use what restrooms. I never really cared because I'm always going to use the mens' room no matter who uses it. It wasn't until someone suggested unisex restrooms that I suddenly gained an opinion. We should never ever allow unisex restrooms to even be considered in this debate. Ignoring the fact that every public building ever has restrooms designed around sets of 2 and building a new restroom would require a crapton of renovations, unisex restrooms would mean the death of cleanliness and efficiency.

 

"Hold on Riku. Cleanliness? Rarely is a public restroom ever clean!" you say. However I was a janitor for a time, and I've somehow always ended up with the task of cleaning both the mens' and womens' restroom at every job I've ever had. I believe that anyone that's ever had to clean both the mens' and womens' restrooms will agree with me when I say that on any given day, the womens' restroom will always, ALWAYS be messier and more gross than the mens' room. At worst the mens' room will have a little bit of pee on the seat and some toilet paper on the floor. Maybe the guy before you didn't flush. Gross right? But womens' rooms have those problems too but worse. They get pee on the seat and floor because they don't actually sit on the toilet seat, they try to squat and their anatomy doesn't really help with aim in this situation. They'll haphazardly throw their used pads and tampons towards the trash can. No not into, towards, and if it doesn't go in too bad I guess, somebody else will get that eventually! Maybe they'll just feel like being jerks and instead of throwing them into the trash can, they throw them into the toilet, causing the toilet to clog and leaving a gross watery/uriney/poopy/bloody mixture for somebody to find. There's also the much higher possibility of dirty diapers just being left on the diaper change table in the womens' room than the mens'.

 

Unisex restrooms would also destroy the efficiency I absolutely love about mens' restrooms. I don't know how, but at any place where there's a lot of people around (sports games, amusement park, etc.) the mens' room is a quick and easy in and out and the womens' room has a line longer than what I expect it should be. What the hell are they doing in there that a queue forms up behind them? If you go to an event where there are porta-potties you should time how long it takes for men to get in and out and for women to get in and out. It's taking women full minutes longer and I can't even begin to understand why. If unisex bathrooms were to come into play they'd probably get rid of urinals (the ultimate tool of restroom efficiency) in order to make space for more stalls (oppressive barriers that have broken/crappy locks half the time). Sure, turning both restrooms unisex will halve the time for women, but it'll double the time for men, which is unacceptable to me. Women need to figure their shit out without pushing some of the problem onto us.

 

Whatever your stance on the restroom debate is, just make sure you're against unisex restrooms.

In North Carolina, the bathroom portion of the bill was a smokescreen used to hide the gratuitous erosion of worker protections. It's frustrating that bathrooms are the primary focus.

 

No localized minimum wage increases (because Raleigh/Charlotte/Durham has the same cost of living as Rural McCraptown), can't use the state courts for anti-discrimination cases, and no civil rights protections beyond the bare minimum (race/sex/religion/disability/etc; not sexual orientation, or other status) throughout the entire state.

 

Admittedly those agreeing the bathroom provision are wrong. Sexual assault, obscentity, and such are already illegal; the creation of this law is equivalent to forcing saucepans to remain in the kitchen because there's a chance someone could use a saucepan to beat you to death. Assault and murder are illegal already, and saucepans are not used as murder weapons by any measurable quantity, so why make it harder for chefs and cooks? Not to mention it appears women and girls are the only victims of the faux-transgender predator, because there's never any discussion over women using men's restrooms. What about men and boys?! And transgendered people are victims of sexual assault at much higher rates than the normal population, but let's forget about that as well!

 

Regardless, the rest of the bill negatively affects everyone in this state.

 

(To be honest, I'd have no problems with unisex bathrooms if the population at large was barely functional. I worked as a janitor as well, and the women's bathrooms were always worse. But when 100% of some 200+ drivers are unable to handle a traffic jam near an intersection, I question how this world functions when people are just so terrible at functioning.)

The whole premise is dumb. Like, I get that people want to keep men out of women's restrooms...but it literally forces FtM transgender individuals into women's restrooms. You know, the ones who look like, and identify as, men.

The strong taboo of men entering women's restrooms greatly decreases the likelihood for voyeurism.

 

Your argument isn't comparable. It's more akin to gun control where both parties being disarmed in an argument prevents people acting on rash decisions. Think Zimmerman

No, you're wrong. My analogy is flawed in some part, yes, but not as you appear to think (and your analogy makes zero sense). First of all, transgender females (i.e., male-to-female) are not men, so men are not using women's restrooms. Secondly, unless you can show me numbers of sexual assaults committed under the guise of being transgender, your opinion is worthless like those who pushed the "Bathroom Bill" through the NC legislature, sorry to say.

 

A law against a non-existent threat is a pointless law. Even worse, this is a law to disenfranchise a minority further under the guise of a non-existent threat.

 

But since MTF are no longer identify as male and no longer appear as such, and since there is no data supporting predators using a transgender guise to commit sexual assault, you can only attempt to be pedantic or arrogant (you took a discrete math course, wow, good job!) like the last time this discussion appeared. If so, I'm not furthering the discussion.

Except last time I provided an example of an increase in sexual assaults in unisex bathrooms and you ignored it because it doesn't fit your narrative.

Great, but unisex bathrooms aren't gender segregated and are therefore irrelevant to both my recent posts!

 

(What was the example? I'll look for it, but to be honest, I don't remember anyone citing any data or studies.)

 

edit: is this what you're talking about? That's not data.

I never said I provided data, I said I provided an example, which I did. The point is that when a bathroom is not obviously restricted by gender, it makes it more easy for people to take advantage of the rules.

 

I also don't think the complaints deal with actual transgender individuals (which I also mentioned last time); they deal with other people taking advantage.
