Re: “The Erotica of Westeros

he also seems to love the pregnant ladies! at least, his characters seem to find pregnancy quite the turn on.

Re: “10 Minutes to 10 Years: The Lasting Effects of Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead

'That owl movie or whatever'? It's called 'Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole' and it's AMAZING.

Re: “My ONE Problem with the Veronica Mars Movie

when my brother-in-law joined the marines, one of the first things i noted was how cheaply made and ill fitting his uniform was- i think that's just the reality of military uniforms nowadays.

Re: “Here We Come

as a native portlander, the only thing i hate about transplants is how they kvetch about all things 'portlandia'. god, i hate that show. all it does is poke fun at all the wacky things transplants do to try and be 'weird'. ok, that and people who can't seem to drive the posted speed limit and treat every single intersection as though it's got a stop sign. obvs, i could be wrong but i assume everyone driving like a moron is a transplant.

Re: “Therapist Suggests Banning Technology for Children Under 12—Instead of, You Know, Suggesting It

my husband was raised by a working single mother in the 80's and they got by fine without cell phones. though i will concede that giving a younger child a phone under those circumstances is a major convenience for all, it is by no means necessary.

Re: “Therapist Suggests Banning Technology for Children Under 12—Instead of, You Know, Suggesting It

i think limiting children's screen time is wise. i don't know how realistic a total ban is but regardless of age, i think most of us could use more time outdoors and/or being active.

it also boggles my mind that some kids have their own cell phones as young as five or six. people like to argue with me that someday if i have children, i'll get them a phone too for "safety issues". uhm, no. people raised children just fine without cell phones for most of history. it probably doesn't help that to this day, i've never owned a cell phone myself.

Re: “Pet Your Own Rent!

i was once a renter with a dog. i sang her praises to all potential landlords and crated her while i was at work. i finally found a rental home that accepted us both. within a month of moving in, and to my total chagrin, my sweet pup tore up a huge patch of newly installed carpet. of course, i immediately paid to have it fixed but damn! looking back i can't believe how lucky i was to find rentals that accepted my dog without extra charges before i finally bought my own place, though i would have gladly paid extra for the pet-friendly housing. landlords take a huge risk against their investment by allowing animals and i don't think it's unfair to ask for extra fees to cover any potential damage, pest infestations, odors, etc.
