    Idea stolen from Reddit.

    Pretty much discuss anything else that doesn't belong in any other thread - how you are going, what's going on in your life, any important milestones and so on.

    Anyone know how to cite an Excel document according to APA 6 guidelines?

    Not sure but depending on the nature of the spreadsheet I'd most likely do it as a dataset. Not familiar with APA 6 but this is an example of a dataset in Harvard AGPS:

    Harrell, F 2011, Data for Titanic passengers, data file, Vanderbilt University, Department of Biostatistics, Nashville, Tennessee, viewed 17 November 2011, <http://biostat.mc.vanderbilt.edu/wiki/pub/Main/DataSets/titanic.txt>.

    EDIT: the formatting hasn't come across but the doc title should be in italics. Maybe change 'data file' to 'Excel file/document'?

    I am too fucken nice. And, as any husband will tell you, if you are too fucken nice then the wife will sense blood in the water and proceed to goose-step lock-step march all over your graven craven ballsack and dominate you to halfway around the Cape of Good Cock and back. They will take your meek & weak twine-meat niceness as far as they fucking can, then after that they will get medieval and giddily run a half-fucking-marathon all up and down your pallid indecisive groinmeat. Eg, my wife recently invited her female friend to come and live with us. Of course I said no. Are you shitting me? What the fuck? That means I’ll have to put my goddamn pants on. She ignored me and let the friend come and live with us anyway. “Sorry” she says, meanwhile not sorry at all, get fucked faget, deal with it. So what if it was "only for a few weeks until she finds a new place." I think I said no? Her parents live right here in the same city, she can fucken stay with them. 3 days of murderous stony-faced silence later and wife had changed her plan. Perhaps she sensed they’d both wind up getting hiffed over the fucking 5th storey balcony.

    I know a French bloke married to a Japanese woman. The guy is insufferably meek, he mumbles, you can’t hear a single fucking thing he says, sorry, what was that, ffs, FFA, I basically gave up even trying with the dude. His wife has zero respect for his gonad-mouthed gallic garble and barks at him, cutting him off, telling him what to order off menus etc. Total emasculation. She’s sensed his zero ignition spark and gone Bonneville Salt Flats with the poor fucker. He just takes it. I want to tell him, one day, just slowly turn around at her and abruptly ROAR LIKE FUCK at her. She will probably respect you for it.

    This brings me to another of my brilliant theories. Women don’t actually “love” men. What they think they “love” is how the man comports himself around other men. They are drawn to the confidence and within it seek a sort of solace. Not “love”, just a sort of sooky deluded security. eg, irrespective of what I look like, if I’m in a group of men and comport myself with garrulous good cheer and sidle out corrosively grandiose witticisms and the other men think I’m just the cats pajamas, the woman will be drawn to me, to the confidence, and my “status” within the group. Conversely, if I just sit there while the other men go all alpha and I chime in with some maladroit clangers, all ignored by the alphas, it won’t matter if I look like George Clooney rendered in oil pastels at sunset in downtown fucking Versailles, the woman will think I’m a klutz and give no fucks. “The guys think he’s a dickhed therefore my beehive of swirling gash vipers is in slumber mode."

    The Doc (psychiatry) bossman at work has mentioned the problems he has with a whole office full of just Japanese women. It wont happen immediately but, within about 3 months, it always turns into some Lord of the Flies shit. One bitch has to be Queen Bee. Then she sides with bitch cohorts and they pick off the weakest petal and prey on them. It has the Doc flummoxed. Would this happen in an office full of just men? Get fucked, we just want to be pals and yak about the sports results. In interviews, even though he is a psychiatrist, he just cannot pick which women will start this shit further down the line. But start it they always do. Always. He is constantly hiring new potential prey/black widows. I tjhink it lies dormant in all of them. Give them an inkling of dominance and they will find some fucker to manifest their murderous seethe upon.

    I dunno DP, to me that sort of behaviour isn't just limited to those with ovaries or who've had an oopherectomy. It sounds like general human behaviour. The dude who chimes in with the maladroit clanger is the same as the weakest petal in the all female office, and the Queen Bee is the same as the alpha male - i.e. has the sociopathic chops to get to the top of the shit heap.

    She should be thankful it wasn't Aunty Doris Gunston doing the interviewing.

    ADG: "Lovely to see you, deary. Now then. First things first. The teeth. Are you going to get them seen to?"
    JA: "Excuse me?"
    ADG: "The teeth. The choppers. The gnashers. It's almost neglectful parenting the way your mother let those things go. Poor Clarke can probably hardly even get his wee wanger in there. So many of the bloody things."

    <<sound of microphones being removed from lapels>>

    ADG:"Oh ok, bye then Mr and Mrs Ed. Thanks for dropping by."

    I haven't been active on the forum for a while, so this may have been raised previously: To GAGR, the Moderators, the Administrators, or whoever was responsible for the return to the 'full-living colour' format on this forum, thank you.
    Great to click-on this morning, and see all the pictorial avatars are back, (including the 'Black Douglas'), replacing the outlines of human heads!!

    I definitely consider this to be a 'milestone'!!

    Thanks Sully. Well done to both of them. BTW, I just noticed that the usual information down the RHS is missing! Such things as who is on-site, who is moderating, forum details: member numbers, post numbers, tweets, and sundry other items relevant to G&GR forum, including ads!
