At my day job we just refer to that area as "South" Asia and "Southeast" Asia is Indonesia, Bangladesh, etc. but yeah, India and Pakistan are Asian countries. But I cut people some slack since the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan is basically the border of the Middle East and Asia.

No slack for misplacing India… » 10/18/14 1:40am 10/18/14 1:40am

Hola, I'm Mary, I'm an indie filmmaker by night and social media guru/editor by day. I just finished work on a feature documentary about professional gaming. The trailer and info is on the website That's been my baby for the last three years. Before that I actually was an intern and… » 10/15/14 9:49am 10/15/14 9:49am

This is exactly why my very close family and friends are under strict orders to NEVER tell anybody else if something happens to me until it's well over and done with or I personally tell them they can talk about it. Because the rush of people who want to have something to say about this woman being sick seemingly so… » 10/14/14 3:36pm 10/14/14 3:36pm

So are these legit put up by the copyright holder copies of the show (like the ones that have been on Amazon Prime for a while since Viacom, last I heard, had signed an exclusivity deal with Amazon?) or are they bootlegs and stealing from the people who made this show that you love? » 10/13/14 1:08pm 10/13/14 1:08pm

When I volunteered for the local Humane Society, I took photos of the cats for them to post to Petfinder. And because nobody else had done it/had the time I started naming them just for my own organization. They said they definitely noticed a bump in adoptions after the combination of better photos/better names. » 10/01/14 2:47pm 10/01/14 2:47pm

I was a bit isolated from sexism because I went to a women's college (a decision I in no way regret) and the first time I really encountered rampant and oppressive sexism was when I got a job as a writer at a newspaper in a conservative "good ol' boy" type area.

I don't mourn for print journalism, really. » 10/01/14 1:53pm 10/01/14 1:53pm

I'm having trouble getting over how absolutely vile this entire idea is. I can't be the only person who finds this tacky, gross, and prejudiced as all hell in ways that are, quite frankly, beneath the people who are supposed to be running/enjoying this website. This is really something you're doing? And that you'll… » 10/01/14 8:00am 10/01/14 8:00am

I personally think it's actually that the sound mix is off, I don't know if it's BBCA or Doctor Who itself, but there's not a consistent level for things so that I can actually hear it well enough to decipher. Sometimes it's too loud, sometimes I can barely hear. I'm losing a few lines per episode myself but for me… » 9/21/14 10:33am 9/21/14 10:33am

I depends on how and what exactly happened before, and how knowledgeable his doctors were about parasomnias (if he was in the U.S. then the answer is not very freakin' knowledgeable at all, but IDK about Sweden). From the description provided, I don't think it could be said that he was "well aware of his condition." … » 9/21/14 12:54pm 9/21/14 12:54pm
