I don't think it was bigotry, just idiocy in not realising you can be something other than 100% gay, 100% straight or exactly 50/50.

Is there a mathematical formula for gay to straight ratio?

Yes.

f(orientation) = 6*pi/(male + female) + orientation*sex2 + bollocks_coefficient

How can orientation be a value for a function where orientation is the variable you're attempting to solve for?

That's how functions work. I didn't specify what the output of the function represents though.

Only if they had actually made off with their attempted theft. I have two cookies, I receive them from the lovely young lady downstairs each morning for free because I bring her the morning papers. I have one at 1400, and the other at 1500. People attempt to simply take my cookie from my desk, for some reason. I gently, but firmly, remind them that I do not appreciate that. Total pokerface action. I rage on here because I can do so without risking a complaint that the big scary guy is yelling at the poor widdle women folk. I know, deep in my heart of hearts, they are just waiting to hit me with that.

The hell? I thought food operated on a "community table" principle. It's only community if it's on the community table (or has a sign), otherwise it's private. And when in doubt, don't eat it.

I promise I'm capable of protecting my own cookies. Honestly, if I turned the internets loose on them, they'd do more damage to me than them.

My street this morning indicates that I am the polar opposite of Longshot. Bad things happen to me, in great quantities, simply because my Mutant Power is best described as "Walking Clusterfuck".

Oh come on, Domino's abilities made *other* people have bad luck, not herself. Longshot had personal good luck. It was 50-50, and since I am male I went with the male.

I am tired of people whining about tvtropes links. Seriously, you can't mouse over it and see what it is before you click? Or, once clicking and seeing the tvtropes header, you can't hit back really quick before you read it? Do you forget that tvtropes exists when you're not actually looking at the website? Do people really need to stop mentioning the site just because you can't stop going clickety?

No personal offense intended to the recent mention thereof. This happens a lot on every board I watch, though. I really don't think it's funny to advertise an utter lack of self-control, even if it's intended jokingly. Just my random raeg faec for today.
