We tried this once and it went exactly as well as you'd expect.

It was more the fact that I got hardly any confessions :lol: If I'd had one even half as crude as the Era lot I'd have called it a great success.

Here it is: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=39204

Fun fact: I sent one of them in myself :shifty:

I’m not sure the nephew would think that. ;)

On the other hand she effectively conceived her nephew, without which she would not exist.

I get what you mean! But as with all 'unplanned' pregnancies nobody is going to voice it any different because it sounds like wishing someone, the nephew, were dead - but that's not the case. Rather it's thinking if she'd taken a different path (if her future hadn't been sabotaged) how would things be different? The fact that the sister telling the story talks about how she's had a great education and great job and met a great man only serves to underline that this self-actualising successful life would probably have been her sister's too - if only she didn't ruin it.

It's certainly a sad story and a great contraception campaign.

Some condom's used to have spermicide in them to kill the sperm.

Perhaps the towel slipped?

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

I just got a warning for being sexist.

Apparently it's sexist to call a woman a banana split.
Someone was also banned for 24 hours over making a joke about the Queen having Dianna killed.

Yeah seems just like NeofGaf really, no sense of humour at all. That's why I love GRcade, you can make a risque or tasteless joke and people will either find it amusing or not, but you won't get banned for it.

I don't like the term snowflake, but it could easily apply to most of that forum.

Americans are really weird about the word banana split. Some of them can't wrap their head around it basically being just a standard insult over here.

I sent a PM to the mod and was told I need to be more culturally sensitive and aware, which I find rather ironic given that the warning (and the other users ban) has come about from a lack of cultural awareness.

There's also a few users jumping to my defence 8-)

I saw this :lol: the c-word is considered kind of like the woman equivalent of a racial insult over in the States. I guess their argument is that they're primarily a US-based site, which I sympathise with, but it does seem like they could stand to loosen up a bit.

An attack on a GRcade forumite (even Laga) is an attack on us all!
