Female Fantasy III



May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.

I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.

FDA Approves First Prosthesis Controlled by Muscle Electrical Signals

Dean Kamen’s DEKA Arm is an electronic prosthetic that mimics natural arm and hand movement with an amazing level of finesse. It’s controlled by electrical signals from the wearer’s muscles. This week, the DEKA Arm became the first muscle-controlled prostheticapproved by the FDA for sale to the general public.

In the FDA study, 90% of test subjects were able to quickly adapt to using the DEKA Arm for tasks that were impossible with traditional arm prosthetics, like brushing hair and using keys and zippers.

This is a cyborg we can all support.

DAN: When you do interviews, you’re faced with the choice to either be the most boring person on earth or just get ridiculous things written about you from time to time
JOSH HOROWITZ: Sometimes it might be good to be boring
DAN: It might be but I just get bored of myself

There are two ways I watch anime

  1. Struggles to find the strength to watch a single episode
  2. Watches till there isn’t a single episode left

This dude was a piece of work.  He came in just before closing time asking for towels.  Preferably hand towels, if possible.  I work in a small drug store, so we don’t usually carry any sort of bath towel, but I took him to seasonal where we have some beach towels on sale for summer, but no hand towels.  At which point he completely ignores what I’m saying and asks if I’m married.

Not one for lying in any situation, I tell him no, I’m not married, hoping the unimpressed look on my face is enough of a hint that I’m not interested in where this conversation is going, and quickly comment on the towels again.

Again, he ignores me and asks if I’m single.  Yes, I’m single, but we’re talking about these towels, yes?

He then says the above, and I’m just… flabbergasted for a moment.  I mean… there’s a look?  I look like I live with my (non-existent) boyfriend?  What exactly does that look like?

He then chooses that moment to ask me for my number. “I’m flattered, but no.” I say. 

"No? Why not?"

"Well, 1: Because I’m working, and that’s not really appropriate. And 2: Because I just don’t really want to."

Twice more, I try to bring the conversation back to the towels, and twice more, he asks for my number.  I try to bring the conversation back around the towels again, but he persists, and my patience is shrinking while my discomfort is growing.  He refuses to listen to me, and asks if I would like his.  I tell him no, I don’t want his number.  He then explains that he’s just moved to town, and doesn’t really know anyone.  (I can’t possibly imagine why…)  As if asking for a pity number will make me respect him more. 

It is now past closing time.  I want to go home, so I try to bring his attention back to the towels he asked me about at the beginning of all this, and he proceeds to—without any provocation—tell me his number, saying to “just keep it in mind, okay?”

"Okay, I’ll keep it in mind."  I say, immediately forgetting it.

He then leaves the store without buying anything, and I head back to the cash office to silently fume about persistent assholes who refuse to take no for an answer.

Later, I talked to the cosmetics advisor about the incident after our shift, and she asked me why I didn’t just give him a fake number.

I said, “Because I shouldn’t bloody well have to.”

AU: Claudia Auditore finds the remaining Romulus followers and she helps them out by making their group gather more followers and in turn, help out the assassin brotherhood. They are very faithful to her and call her their “Little Red Riding Hood”.

With such a title however, they make sure never to upset their red riding hood as she’s got a nasty temper and is stronger and skilled than all of them.
