So this happened.

Fifty Shades Darker sells sex... and business is booming. The sequel to the top-grossing erotica adaptation opened in the U.S. last weekend to a robust $46.6 million, and added more to that bank on Valentine's Day, according to box office receipts. Down Under, however, we're really hoping that one person watched the sequel by themselves in a Sydney, Australia movie theater, because the employees cleaning up after a screening found a cucumber on the floor. All together now: "Eeewwwwwwwwwww!!"
Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace on Monday, February 13, 2017 Facebook wrote:
That awkward moment when you find a cucumber in the cinema after a Fifty Shades session...😳
This is why people are advocating for first-run movies to reach home video sooner rather than later. Who wants to drag themselves all the way out to a movie theater on a Valentine's Eve with your vegetable date for an intimate screening of Fifty Shades Darker? Wouldn't you plunk down $50 for a 48-hour exclusive window to enjoy the, ahem, passionate feature film in the privacy of your own home?

Almost everyone visiting the post on the Facebook page of the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace in Sydney instantly yelled at the employee for handling said cucumber. They were told to sterilize their hands immediately, and were questioned why they picked it up in the first place! The theater, who is having fun with the situation at their own expense, blamed the incident on Student Night, which happened at the venue, and said they instantly regretted touching the vegetable, saying that they didn't know what it was because the house lights were still down.

In James Foley's Fifty Shades Darker, the controversial dominatrix Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) continues his dangerous relationship with submissive Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), and his attraction grows because of the way this girl -- unlike all of the others -- pushes back against his natural tendencies. The duo deal with some lingering personal issues, but the hook of the sequel is to see these two attractive Hollywood starlets in their birthday suits. Often. Hence, the need for a cucumber.

I have a friend, who's co-workers think 50 shades is based on a true story.

Then these are the same people who think the color Brown is a primary color.

Yes, he works with very stupid people, who market a diet system that starts with the letter 'M'

Not just for bagels, but if you want a fresher bagel than what comes in a package on the supermarket shelf around here, you're either going to a chain (like Einstein's Bagels) or going to a fancy bakery and paying top dollar for it. There's just no "cheap and delicious" market for those kinds of goods here.

I did some investigation via Yelp and Gbaji is right. The bagel situation in San Diego is bleak. In a review for one bagel shop, the reviewer was mainly excited because they sold Boar's Head meat products.

And, yeah, not looking forward to the other parts of it all. Right now things are fine though. crosses fingers House is a newer place (2009) that we bought from the developer after they rented it out for a few years. Pre-purchase inspection turned up nothing of note really, so trick will be keeping it that way I guess. At this point though, still just happy to be there. First time in over 15 years that I'm not sharing a wall/ceiling/floor with someone. That alone is awesome.

As a plus I've had a chance to use some of those tools that have been sitting in storage since I left home. Smiley: nod

The great thing about home ownership is that you are in complete control over all the maintenance, repairs, upgrades, etc. No more wrangling, pleading, or negotiating with a landlord to try to get things done. The bad news is that you are completely responsible for all the maintenance, repairs, upgrades, etc.

IMO, it's more than worth it though.

Yeah, looking forward to this. Several tenants have complained of things like mice and ants in the apartments, and getting the complex to do something that fixes the problem has been a bit of an issue.

Apparently Uber uses a tool to block users from using its service who may be violating its terms of service, including local law enforcement in areas where the service is banned trying to hail rides as parts of sting operations. It's pretty clever, actually.

Where there's a will there a way I guess. Seems like the kind of thing that whether or not it's legal, they'll probably find a way to make it illegal. A program that could detect and avoid likely law enforcement in that way seems like the kind of thing that wouldn't be liked much. If nothing else you probably can't discriminate against people just because they might be law enforcement. Blue is the new black?

But think of the efficiency. You hire an Uber person thing and have them drive you to the county jail, then just lock them up when they drop you off. No pesky manhunts needed.

Well, with only a bit of Smiley: tinfoilhat, the concern is something many privacy advocates have been talking about for years now. The very nature of data collection leads to forms of discrimination. Even when a company is choosing what advertisements to send to which groups (or even individuals), that's still a form of discrimination. Now we might view choices in terms of who gets the ice cream ads and who gets the health food ads to be pretty benign, the same tools can be used for other, less acceptable forms. At the end of the day, the data collected is a form of profiling that goes well beyond what any law enforcement agency has ever even imagined, but can have significant socio-economic impact.

Even ignoring the more overt aspects (like just not responding to sets of people who've been profiled as "bad customers"), the basic advertising bit can be a concern. Advertising affects behaviors (otherwise no one would do it). When advertising is tailored to groups of people based on micro-profiling, you can easily steer people to different lifestyle behaviors based on those profiled characteristics. So white middle class folks are being exposed to an entirely different "world" than working class blacks, for example. Everything from what pop ups appear in our browsers, what email ads appear in our inbox, what random stuff shows up in our facebook feeds, what searches pop up first in our browsers, etc. Even setting aside any deliberate malicious efforts, it still can serve to divide people into groups based on profiled assumed responses, and thus actually enhance the very assumed differences. When groupA is always presented with one set of information, and groupB presented with a different one, based on the assumption that groupA and groupB innately prefer different things, it will tend to actually create and re-enforce that starting assumption. You can literally make stereotypes true with this sort of thing.

The really scary potential to this is when folks realize that instead of just waiting to see what people like or want and then tailoring to those things, they can start shaping peoples needs and wants proactively, and then tailoring each level of information interaction based on responses to the previous one all designed to nudge their audience to sets of results they want. Which can be anything from purchasing choices, lifestyle choices, social ideology, and politics, to entertainment, what sports they like to watch, how they receive news, how they communicate with others around them, etc, etc, etc.

A Brave New World indeed.

Today I learned that milking stations are a thing... as we were working to install a milking station in the women's restroom in the offices at work.

Of course, it was little more than a stall without a toilet. Which makes me wonder what the point was, if one could just do that business in one of the half dozen stalls already there. But I guess I don't milk myself, so I wouldn't know.

I'm going to guess that it's just more pleasant to not feed your child where someone else was shitting three minutes prior. I mean, I'd rather not eat my lunch while sitting on a toilet in a public bathroom stall even if, realistically, there's little harm in me doing so.

Related: I'm guessing the toilet-less stall where no one blows ass or tries to hover-pee stays cleaner than the standard stalls. Also, there's less reason to be resentful at someone taking up a stall for 15min if there's no toilet in there anyway.

Just to be clear, this isn't a location to breast feed your kid. It's a location for women to collect their milk, to store, and later feed their kid (or, I guess, just to make sure that they don't reduce production because they are at work for 9 hours). There are no kids in this office, and no work daycare.

So, instead of using a stall with a toilet to collect their milk, they are using a stall right next to a stall with a toilet to collect their milk. Which is where my "Ok, I guess, but what's the difference?" comment comes from.

I gotcha. I'd still guess that it's cleaner, more pleasant that sitting on the pot and less burden to vacate quickly so someone else can use the toilet. Agreed that it seems less necessary than a nursing station but I can see the point of it.

I'm assuming they didn't actually remove a toilet to install this. So it's not as though it's hurting anything.

What's on my mind is where does it evolve from here. Right now there's both political and monetary incentive to compartmentalize smaller groups of people for their benefit. Ideally though the monetary incentive would be higher if you could target advertising better to the individual level, rather than the level of small subgroups. Your news/ads/apps/etc could be targeted to you and only you, feeding your ego in exchange for money. Ideally one would think that's where the maximum payout would be, and it kind of slips past that grey area where you could be discriminating based on subgroups and assumptions.

On the other hand though, it that there isn't a group identity at that level. You can't say "I'm a member of the private Clintons-R-G8-4-Murica facebook page!" There's some want to belong to a select group, and we're inherently social creatures after all. Political aims would, of course, be better served by fostering and promoting group identity at the expense of the individual as well, adding to push-back in the other direction. Like you say, it's where the balance between customizing the advertising to the person vs. customizing the person to the advertising plays out.

Anyway, just mostly curious as to where that ends up. Should be good times, regardless. Well... assuming you're an advertiser.

If it's in a restroom, then they kinda did. At the very least, if this is a new build rather than just refitting an existing restroom, that's a stall that would have had a toilet if the space were not being used up for this purpose. Which seems wasteful, at the very least.

Why not just do what we do, and designate "lactation rooms". You know, just a regular office set aside for this purpose. I've got to assume that floor space in a restroom, with the plumbing, tiles, etc, is more expensive to set aside (and you know, less convenient for everyone else). And I'd assume that if cleanliness is an issue of concern (hence the point of not just using a stall with a toilet), wouldn't not having this in a restroom at all make a lot more sense?

Well, no. If they removed a toilet then they did. If they added a stall into the existing space then they didn't. If they designated space in a new room then they didn't. Especially since adding in the plumbing for an additional toilet is much more extensive than putting up a partition and a chair.

As a woman, I rather have a whole room set aside, then a stall in a restroom.

One of the things you must be careful about in storage of milk you extract, is hygiene of the room you are in, since you need a place to put down the breast pump and storage bag, after you are finish. Each time a toilet is flush, it send a fine spray of water into the air. .

Plus many women will need an outlet to plug in their breast pumps, as they are so much easier to use then the manual one I had to use back some 35 years ago.

If I was a woman, working in any factory that made car parts, I would suggest they kick some manager out of his office, before they make women use a stall in the restroom to express their milk.

My building has a specific room for milking set aside. I suppose they could turn it into another small private call room, but honestly who gives a ****? More power to them; seems like a good use of space and incentive to offer employees.

Now, on the other hand, I saw some pearl-clutchy post related to tomorrow's "Day Without a Woman" which listed amongst its grievances that most women's bathrooms didn't have tampons readily available in them. I can see why this might urgent if you don't have one, but I can't imagine why anybody would expect that somebody else would provide them.

Of course, one could say the same about toilet paper, so /shrug.
