Unless you know more excellent sysadins who want to take on some of my work in Santa Monica. This week I've already done two over night maintenances and I'm about to collapse.
*groan* same here.  No sleep through the night, migrating some systems from our stupid VMWare environment to the XenServer virtualisation... 6:43am here and I'm about to head into work...

I agree that the US is super backwards with it's views on sexuality compared to the rest of the world. It can be painful, but I'm always happy when I meet open people with healthy views on sex and life. Sexuality is a very natural thing and flirting is fun! (I'm jealous of you, being surrounded by beautiful women!) What I'm trying to say is, I don't think it's healthy to bottle up or try to pretend that your human nature isn't there. Charles, you probably have it right when it comes to seeing a counselor if you can find a good one.
I would have thought the US was fairly advanced in it's views on sexuality.  Don't get me wrong, there's room for improvement and a number of the asian countries seem to be much more liberal but I always figured the US well above the average of other countries in regards to views on sex and sexuality... I guess what I notice is that the US has a lot of outspoken extremes of opinions and ideas from one end of the spectrum all the way to the other which likely leads to a lot of contention.

Hope to see you all in Skype sometime... but right now I'm going to zombie shuffle to work...

UIS, visiting Taiwan sounds nice :) I have much more liquidity these days so traveling wouldn't be out of the question but time just isn't something I have... Unless you know more excellent sysadins who want to take on some of my work in Santa Monica. This week I've already done two over night maintenances and I'm about to collapse.

Well if you ever have time I highly recommend it.  And do so in July if possible.  I will have infinitely more time to show you around, which still isn't as much as I'd like, but way more than usual.

I like how you mentioned "Santa Monica", as though you really are putting out an ad for excellent sysadmins haha!

But anyway yes the women are amazing here.  I can try to help you find the places where the girls might like other girls? ;D

Apart from that, hot springs, mountains, cool temples, sick night life...a good vacation all in all!

'night y'all!

(funny how it's just like old days here!!)

Crazy and mature? I'm glad I've found a bunch that understand that they go hand in hand! :P

Umber, thanks, and good luck with counceling mate! I've had good success in that regard myself, though unrelated to your situation. :)

In regards to steiner education, I know that it isn't for everyone. Whether it's disagreements with their philosophy or teaching method or what, I've had some friends who it wasn't so great for at times. But like any school, it's got it's stronger and weaker points. And I would say that on the whole, the steiner philosophy adds greatly to any school. Especially the younger years!

Say Charles, who do you figure is more advanced on views of sexuality, Aus or the US? It does seem true that the US has a great variety of beliefs all through. Maybe a comparision is impossible :S

EDIT: As usual, epic long-winded post.  Sorry.


Got so excited about Akasha saying she thought it would be nice to come to Taiwan that I forgot about Charles' post...

Yeah I think a lot of the polarized, outspoken views on both sides of the spectrum comes from the fact that sexuality is so suppressed in general American culture, especially in the part where I come from (Rhode Island), and especially a generation ahead of us.  People presumably do it, but certainly never talk about it.  Maybe it's just my family.  (it's not though)  But there's just a whole thing about it being dirty and wrong, that I think even comes through when people are talking about it in a "positive" light, like when you're talking about a hot girl and what you'd like to do to her, for example, that I don't get when I'm talking to people from other cultures, even including Canada, which has to be the closest thing to American culture on the planet.

I also am curious about Australia.  What's it like in Australia charles?

But for example, I've never heard anyone except an American say "I'd lick her ass." or something violent or just nasty to mean that a girl is really hot.  Also, look at American porn over the last several years.  Must we fucking spit in each other's mouths and ravage girls in violent ways to have a good time?  And you hear more and more often about people doing shit like that in non-porn life.

On the other hand, English sexuality is another whole can of worms, where I get the impression that there is also a dirty tinge on stuff.  Americans came from England though, or at least a lot of our culture does...

I'm rambling, but overall I would say that other cultures are more comfortable with sexuality and also overall a bit less focused on it.  As in, it's part of life but that's what it is.

Another caveat: Japanese sexuality is weird to me.  Japanese people are just way fucking overworked I think, I dunno.

Also, I'm not including cultures where the sexes are really inequal and women are openly disrespected or worse.  I don't even relate to that at all, don't understand it and have no experience of it.

Another sample situation: maybe somebody at a party hooks up with someone else.  Americans (again, at least where I'm from) would be talking about it quite a bit, like fascinated with it, but it seems like Canadians or Europeans I know would be way more chill about it.  There would be discussion of course, but not as much and people would move on quicker.  As a result, Americans often feel a need to hide their relationships, attractions, and hookups to a certain degree.

It's different here in Taiwan, but sexuality is still just way more of an accepted part of life in it's own way.  People know who's hot for who, and having sex isn't a victory for one side or the other, it's just something that happens.  Just a generalization.

Americans are way more chill out west though in my experience.  I'm from Puritan country, and then the south is it's own animal again.

In my family though, sex would seem to be completely nonexistent.  It is a completely taboo subject.  Even to the extent of relationships though.  It is not ok to discuss relationships with the opposite sex in any way.  Not healthy for me, who has an analytical mind.  I like to have information before I take action!

On a completely unrelated note, I will try to get involved in the Skypey action  :)

Now that attitude towards sex explains a lot of why "pro-life" vs. 'pro-choise' is such an issue in the US... (I just don't get why some people feel so threatenened by women having a veto on what happens inside their own bodies...)

One of my grandfather's and father's saying about when a lass is particularly comely was "I'd let her fart in my soup."

Mmm... I'm trying to not go on a long spiel here, because, man, I've got to get some sleep at some point tonight.
But general thoughts on above topics.  I wouldn't know enough to compare different cultures openess on sexuality.  But America as a whole, I wouldn't think of as all that open.  There are MANY, DIVERSE, groups in America who are open to all SORTS of stuff.  But I don't think of them as the majority yet.  Though this opens the door to mainstream status eventually as people become acclimatized.

Japan, as a nation, is just plain WEIRD in many ways.  Their porn being just one of them.  (Not bashing Japan, Just saying they're weird sometimes man.)

Porn is a somewhat unique media, in that major publishers of it don't always try to reach 'mainstream' audiences.  AS an example, say that 90% of the population likes plain straight missionary stuff.  Well, they can get that anywhere, and most likely experience it relatively easily in their own relationships.
   Now think about the .002% of the population that like lactating octogenarians breast feeding orangutans dressed as bullfighters.  It's not exactly something they can find anywhere.  But here's the interesting bit.  If a porn company makes films of this fetish, all of the people with that fetish will buy that film.  There's no competition.  And if they keep making whack stuff like that, they have a loyal customer base who can't get their product anywhere else, and no competition.  It's actually somewhat more profitable for them to make far out crazy stuff than 'normal' porn.  And just the fact that this stuff is out there, gets people used to the idea.  It slowly becomes accepted perhaps as something that they're not into, but fine for other people.  Then eventually they consider it normal.  Then THEY start getting off on it too.  It's how society evolves around anything new generally speaking.  The same happened with those devil horseless carriages :)  This is all based off of conversations with a friend of mine who actually works in the porn industry (Distribution and Promotion, not making them.)

Also, as for attractiveness.  About 80% of it is in attitude for me.  Age, or body has little to do with it for me.  Though obviously, I'm going to try and stick to someone closer to my age, and within a certain range of body types, but really, curvy, small, I love you all. :D

So true, a great attitude can make up for any and all bodily flaws or quirks, while a bad attitude turns even the most beautiful princess into a disgusting pariah.

Whacha got planned Awd?  And what do you do for a living anyway?

Not that anyone probably cares, but Megadeth is coming to Taiwan, I'm stoked!  You have to be happy when you get a band you actually want to see over here.

Mentioned this in the Goodbye thread: had a bar lunch with an old work mate and it was not really a interview but it was a heads up about a post with him that will be advertised very shortly in the local press.  But what he will do is put my name forward for the post and if he can act as a character reference if I go for the job.  And as for my hair cut if I can will put up photos of it  up after my annual trip to Englandshire next weekend.

So what's the job opportunity Awd?
