Such as the Goa'uld or Ori.
How does this compare to Learnfun and Playfun, programs publicized last year as learning and playing NES games?
Why not functional items as well as toys, or, even better, functional items including toys?
These are people spending weeks to months, and sometimes even a whole year there. Surely they deserve some fun.
Why are you assuming that male sexual assault victims are rare? According to the CDC:
19.3% of women and 1.7% of men have been raped during their lifetimes.
1.6% of women and a negligible number of men had been raped in the 12 months preceding the survey.
Note: Forced or otherwise coerced sex is not rape unless there is penetration of the vagina or anus, or penetration of the mouth by a sexual organ, as per the definition given by the US DOJ.
43.9% of women and 23.4% of men have experienced other forms of sexual violence during their lifetime, including being made to penetrate, sexual coercion, unwanted sexual contact, and noncontact unwanted sexual experiences.
5.5% of women and 5.1% of men had been victims of these other forms of sexual violence in the 12 months preceding the survey.
That does bring up the question of why these other forms of sexual victimization are nearly identical in the short-term (93 men for every 100 women), but somewhat disparate in the long-term (53 men for every 100 women). Even if we assume that the groups of rape victims and victims of other forms of sexual violence are mutually exclusive, that's 72 men for every 100 women in the short-term and 40 men for every 100 women in the long-term.
Not to mention the peredhil.
Looking into it more, prisoners in US prisons get paid between $0.23 and $1.05 per hour.
You say that we can't use forced labor, but we can if someone is being punished for a crime, as is stated in the 13th Amendment.
Thus many prisons in the US run for-profit manufacturing businesses, using forced labor.
During their lifetime, 19.3% of women and 1.7% of men have been raped*.
During the year preceding the study, 1.6% of women and a negligible number of men have been raped*.
During their lifetime, 43.9% of women and 23.4% of men experienced other forms of sexual violence, including being made to penetrate, sexual coercion, unwanted sexual contact, and non-contact unwanted sexual experiences.
During the year preceding the study, 5.5% of women and 5.1% of men experienced these other forms of sexual violence.
Female victims reported predominantly male perpetrators in all categories.
Male victims reported predominantly male perpetrators for rape, female perpetrators for being made to penetrate and sexual coercion, and a nearly even split for unwanted sexual contact and noncontact unwanted sexual experience.
*The US DOJ definition of rape: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”
If only her character were a real person. Not only is she beautiful, but if you remember she got genuinely excited over Unix. My guess is that she'd have a three-digit
Why fix the few existing issues when you can create whole new ones?
We all know how much
I keep hearing the argument that CFLs start out dim and are slow to produce full light, and they die quicker.
This argument is just flat out wrong. I've been using General Electric CFL bulbs for years, and I've had zero issues with warmup or dying.
They come on instantly, and I only replace a bulb when one of the incandescent ones that came with the apartment dies.
It is better to let nine innocent men be extorted than to let one guilty man go free.
Or something along those lines.
Personally, I've been saving parts from old computers I've built for years with the intention of building a HTPC.
Using this year's Christmas presents, I'll finally have enough parts to build one. So, for me, Valve has perfect timing.
I'd suggest watching Stephen Fry: Out There and Stephen Fry: HIV and Me. They give a lot of information about both homosexuality and HIV/AIDS around the world.
One startling point is that South Africa does not believe that there is a connection between HIV and AIDS.
I know that a lot of people hated the original Xbox controller, but I liked it better than any other Xbox controller.
Even at 14 when it came out, it fit my hands perfectly.
