Casually talking about adult female friends is tricky business. Calling them “guys” can be considered misgendering. Calling them “girls” could be disrespectful. Calling them “women” is bizarrely formal and impersonal. “Ladies” is formal and/or condescending. Calling them “females” is TERF-y and makes you sound like a goddamn Ferengi posting on /r/incels.

Does this… does this mean “dames” should make a comeback? It’s vintage and a little slang-y, but also implies that you’re hanging out with a bunch of knights.

Birds.

Sisters.

Charming humans of the female persuasion.

I have an (adult male) friend who refers to hanging with us (adult women) as ‘the ladies’ and it’s delightfully quirky and kind of sweet. Guess it’s just who you’re friends with

True. I call all women ladies. Madam if they’re married. Ms. If I cannot tell. I call men boys.

Simon have you tried durian, the king of fruits?

I have. For reference it is possible to kill a man with one.

That is all.

Making him eat one, or clubbing him to death with one and eating the evidence like that movie with the leg of lamb?

Have you seen a durian? It’s a medieval siege weapon! The orchards actually have to string nets below the canopy to prevent the fruits from killing the harvesters.

And what’s wrong with durian? Clearly the human nose is weak and silly.

All I have to do is not take my zinc supplements for a week and I could probably eat it no problem. I’ve got a terrible sense of smell.

Actually…if you want to enjoy it with your stupid nose, you’re better off eating it immediately after a zinc pill.

To me theysmell lovely. To Chef they smell like “someone gathered rotten garlic into a pile, downed it with rancid dairy, and lit it on fire”. To Rebecca, it smells like “someone rolled a corpse in the green bin and then left it in the sun.”

To me it tastes slightly like a sweet garlic custard. To Chef it feels like “chewing puss” and to Rebecca, “dying, but not fast enough”

I’m 87 years old…I only eat so I can smoke and stay alive.. The only fear I have is how long consciousness is gonna hang on after my body goes. I just hope there’s nothing. Like there was before I was born. I’m not really into religion, they’re all macrocosms of the ego. When man began to think he was a separate person with a separate soul, it created a violent situation.
The void, the concept of nothingness, is terrifying to most people on the planet. And I get anxiety attacks myself. I know the fear of that void. You have to learn to die before you die. You give up, surrender to the void, to nothingness.
Anybody else you’ve interviewed bring these things up? Hang on, I gotta take this call….. Hey, brother. That’s great, man. Yeah, I’m being interviewed… We’re talking about nothing. I’ve got him well-steeped in nothing right now. He’s stopped asking questions.

[throws up arms] Just tell your crushes you like them! Figure out the rest from there! It’s either gonna hurt or it ain’t!

They can only say no, and if you never say anything the answer is no, you’re better off with the chance of a yes. You’re also stronger if you face rejection and fear.
