ENTIRE WEEKEND OPEN THREAD DANCE PARTY

Dance, dance, dance!

Man Boobz’ first FRIDAY NIGHT OPEN THREAD DANCE PARTY is now open for business. Most threads here are pretty open, but this one will be even more so. Talk about whatever you want, link to interesting shit, link to your own blogs, go wild!

Or you can talk about this:  Earlier today I was listening to the song Dusseldorf, by La Dusseldorf, one of my favorite Krautrock bands, and I started thinking about bands that write songs referencing their band name in the lyrics and/or the titles of the songs. (In the song “Dusseldorf,” the word “Dusseldorf” is repeated probably a hundred times.) Off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of other bands that have done this:

The Monkees, “Hey hey we’re the Monkees”

Public Image Limited, “Public Image.”

The Fall, “Neighborhood of Infinity,” “Crap Rap 2,” I’m sure others will come to me.

Who else has done this? (I think we should leave out rap, because rappers often mention themselves.)

@Johnny Pez If that said Austin 3:16 I’d be all over you (and if you didn’t have the rainbow wig xD )

@Zombie: Alas, I am Firefox-less (Safari), but thank you!
@Pecunium: Love love love “Bad Company” and “Big Country.” Bagpipes!
I had a great deal of sympathy for MRAL until the groping thread, too, and still feel that there’s hope for him. But pretty much everyone has been very patient and generous with him and he needs to accept that he has a disproportionate understanding of his suffering relative to others. Yes, there was dog-piling and yes, it takes time to digest other people’s perspectives. Hopefully he will pull himself together and acknowledge that other people have vulnerabilities and insecurities, too, and that the dog-piling was caused by him saying hurtful things to people who have suffered a great deal more than he has.
Worst pick up line ever: I really couldn’t tell if he was trying to express interest (which would have been inappropriate given the situation) or insult me, but a guy once told me “The nice-girl routine is getting old.” I didn’t know how to respond…Oh, you are so cool for outing me! That really gives my inner slut the tinglies. I want to jump your bones RIGHT NOW. Hamster-wheel whiiiiiiiiirls. Oh, and the guy who kept talking about when he was a baby in his mother’s womb. Because references to women’s anatomy really turn me on, apparently.

Pickup lines: I don’t know if this is best or worst, but the conversation with the first person I slept with went something like this (we were loosely acquainted before this and there was some lead up conversation):

Her: “So, what do you think about lesbianism?”
Me (shrugs): “I’m perfectly fine with it.”
Her: “What do you think about lesbianism with me?”
Me: “That would be awesome .”

In hindsight, that one is kind of hilarious, but I do respond well to blunt people. Subtle flirting tends to go right past me.

Ooh, DSC, that reminds me of one. I had known this guy for a while, and suddenly out of nowhere, he goes, “Beeslastname, I’m sick of not kissing you!” And I went, “M’yeah … okay.” And then we made out.

My comments haven’t been showing up for some reason. Maybe a different email will help.

Just for funsies since this is an open thread :] Captain Bathrobe’s comment in the last thread

Judging by some of these responses, it appears that the women who comment on this blog are…real, complex human beings, not stereotypes. Who knew?

Made me think about what might be the MRA (or certain MRA) interpretation of my question and what might be the responses (prolly that she’s terribly fat xD ) to the question, what facts might be assumed in.. etc x3

Given that Kirby Warp seemed game on IM, I thought, why not share it if ppl are also game? 😀

like a thought exercise! or a pop quiz, what have ppl learned from David’s posts? xD

if a guy were rly tired from a late night the day before and just finished work and wanted to go home and sleep, would he go with a girl clothes shopping (esp if he doesn’t like shopping or being in a clothing store filled with girls) and stay with her in the dressing room line and give comments on her clothes, if he didn’t like her? :O (and she didn’t ask)

this is the question again :3

Here was my first response:

“You feminazis are all the same! After a hard day of slaving, he comes back to you for a little bit of rest. But you use your terrible pussy powers to mangina him into going shopping with you! You probably have him so whipped that he actually thinks he likes you, poor man.”

I’ll think of more later if my brain starts working again. 🙂

Ooh, the NWO version!

“Typical of you feminists. I’ll bet if it was a man forcing a woman to go shopping with him you’d have him arrested on the spot!

Fun fact: now men can be arrrested if they don’t go shopping with their lady. Title IX has just been given a bazillion dollars, and will soon take over the entire world! Men will be arrested simply for having a penis. *posts link to holocaust deniers website* As if anyone needed any more proof.”

“OK, got it. You’re a hot Asian chick so that makes you an alpha who spits on omega guys like me. Since you’re interested in this guy that means he’s either an alpha or a beta. How tall is he?”

The chick is doing well. The shelf-liner made it possible for him/her to get the adductors strong enough to stand and now it runs about just as the others do. They are starting to get pin-feathers, so open air photography is only possible for a few more days.

Wow, Pecunium, for a second I thought you were doing an MRA response… Maybe in some dystopic future where women are grown in labs as per the “Fear and Loathing” thread.

This the obituary of an acquaintance of mine’s mother.

I include it to show that the idea “women don’t do anything” is a filthy lie.

Dr. Yalow, a product of New York City schools and the daughter of parents who never finished high school, graduated magna cum laude from Hunter College in New York at the age of 19 and was the college’s first physics major. Yet she struggled to be accepted for graduate studies. In one instance, a skeptical Midwestern university wrote: “She is from New York. She is Jewish. She is a woman.”

Undeterred, she went on to carve out a renowned career in medical research, largely at a Bronx veterans hospital, and in the 1950s became a co-discoverer of the radioimmunoassay, an extremely sensitive way to measure insulin and other hormones in the blood. The technique invigorated the field of endrocrinology, making possible major advances in diabetes research and in diagnosing and treating hormonal problems related to growth, thyroid function and fertility.

The test is used, for example, to prevent mental retardation in babies with underactive thyroid glands. No symptoms are present until a baby is more than 3 months old, too late to prevent brain damage. But a few drops of blood from a pinprick on the newborn’s heel can be analyzed with radioimmunoassay to identify babies at risk.

The technique “brought a revolution in biological and medical research,” the Karolinska Institute in Sweden said in awarding Dr. Yalow the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1977.

@Pecunium: That’s awesome. I’m really bad with nobel prize winners so I didn’t know of Dr. Yalow, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if I’ve used a few of her techniques, or advances thereon, in my own work.

And, in honor of Dr. Yalow and that awesome life, I present to you all some biochem (and a few other sciences) pick-up lines. To my knowledge, they’ve never actually been used, but I have been tempted to try:

If I could be any enzyme, I’d be DNA helicase. So I could unzip your genes/jeans.

If I were a neurotransmitter, I would be dopamine so I could activate your reward pathway.

I want to work on your leucine zipper with my zinc fingers.

Hey, wanna put your alpha helix in my beta barrel?

Hey baby, why don’t you get your ligase working on my okazaki fragment and lengthen my strand.

Everyone knows its not the size of the vector that matters, but the way the force is delivered.

I’d like to be the integral to your function so I can lie tangent to your curves.
