You don’t know?! AAAAAH MUST TAKE YOU. The amphitheater behind the bookstore in the quarry. It’s “off-limits” because it fell out of use and started too break down and become unsafe.

I rang the literary editors of a few ‘respected’ papers and asked them how much space they were giving to women writers in their ‘review’ sections. Perfectly predictable response. They all said the allocation was fair. One said it was equal, and one prominent editor went so far as to say women are dominating the reviews!
… What happened when I asked who was doing the talking in mixed sex conversations? Well, it was the women of course. And then when you get to measure it you find that women get to talk about 10-20% of the time in conversations with men. A woman who talks about a third of the time is seen to be dominating the talk.
And what happened when I asked teachers who got their attention in class? Well, it was all equal, wasn’t it? No preferences there. And you measure it and find that girls get about 10-20% of the teacher’s attention. Any more, and the boys think it unfair - and go into revolt.
So what do you think I found with the reviews?
I would have predicted about 10-20% of the space went to women’s books. Well, it is less than 6% of the column inches. And the reasonable editor who thinks that women are getting more than their share is one of the worst offenders. Poor boys! It really tells you something when they think only 94% of the review section is not enough, doesn’t it? When 6% for women is too much you get some idea how much men think they are entitled to - as a fair deal.
OH GUYS HEY PACIFIC RIM BLU RAY IS GOING TO BE 6$ AT TARGET AS A BLACK FRIDAY DEAL
from my experience, Target’s Black Fridays are super organized and not as stressful as a lot of other places
Still stressful tho and especially the electronics section
but! if your Targets are like mine, they will put the DVDs and Blu Rays that are on sale up front in separate displays so you dont have to go to the electronics section
A PSA for those who don’t have the Blu-Ray yet!
Snowy Alaska night.
HAVE YOU CRIED ABOUT PACIFIC RIM TODAY?
