Quiz time: How do you like it?

Quiz time: How do you like it?

After somewhat correctly babbling about it for some time, I’ve found a good online quiz for the Klein Sexual Orientation grid. The Klein grid is a scale from 0 to 6, with 0 being totally heterosexual, 6 being totally homosexual, and 3 being bisexual, or as we say in D&D land, “true neutral.” What does […]

Despite asking for a “midsized” car every time, I normally get something different, like a convertible, or an SUV, or even a full-sized Ford F-250 truck. I am pretty sure it’s because all the tree-hugger enviro-friendly tourists want more efficient cars. But since I’m on […]
