So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

The romance novel book club I’m in drew the line at beastiality, but I’m going to at least bring this up at the next meeting.

I love that this book is for real serious Canadian lit. Like, it won the Governor General’s award, and Margaret Lawrence apparently loved it. And look at that cover. :)It seems to be all repression versus the wilderness, which just makes me laugh it’s THE THEME of Canadian Lit. Why doesn’t the rest of our stuff have bestiality? I mean, really. It’s the obvious extension of the theme.

"

With most traits, humans fall on different points along a spectrum. If you ask people whether they prefer to think or feel, or whether they prefer to judge or perceive, the majority will tell you a little of both. Jung himself admitted as much, noting that the binaries were useful ways of thinking about people, but writing that “there is no such thing as a pure extravert or a pure introvert. Such a man would be in the lunatic asylum.”

But the test is built entirely around the basis that people are all one or the other. It arrives at the conclusion by giving people questions such as “You tend to sympathize with other people” and offering them only two blunt answers: “yes” or “no.”

[…]

We could accept the fact that the Myers-Briggs is limited in defining people in binary categories, but still theoretically get some value out of it because it accurately indicates which pole of any category we’re closest to.

But that idea is tough to swallow given the fact that the test is notoriously inconsistent. Research has found that as much as 50 percent of people arrive at a different result the second time they take a test, even if it’s just five weeks later.

Yeah, I’m pretty confident in saying I expected this thing was total bullshit all along. I mean sure, use it as a way of forging self-identity, if you want to pigeon-hole yourself into a series of 4 digits.

This is basically like believing in horoscopes, people.

Plate Etiquette 

I did not know this.  

The fuck is wrong with rich people ‘hey do you want a second plate’ no i want to make up a secret passive aggressive fork language so we can titter mockingly at that rube from the country who says he enjoyed the meal with his fucking mouth


STFU

Where does this plate language come from? I’ve always thought you place your cutlery at four o’clock when your finished. 

The general idea is the same though; you place your cutlery in a parallel position so it won’t fall off your plate when your server tries to clear the table, causing a great deal of mess and embarrassment. It also gives your server a better idea of when to stop by and clear the table.

So speaking as a server, this “secret PA fork language” is just there to make our jobs a little easier.
