Oh hey, if they fixed wall swimming, there's a part of my level for EK3 that relies heavily on that. It's pretty useless, but it's also basically a cut scene, so it's cool. Spoilers. Hi.

I am going to take the Red Key.

However, I am also embroiled in a contest to make a really good payload map for TF2. I might not have anything right away. I'm not gonna disappear on the project (please reference my monthly bumps of the last one) but I won't be quick either. If someone wants to take it before I get to it, no big deal.

I might start working on more areas. Give me some time to think up any novel ideas, and I might take a powerup. Hell, I will probably take one or two even if I'm not particularly inspired anyway.

I don't care, but if you make the proposed beta, include my area or it will never be released at all, because I spent too much time on it for it to go to waste. It is also possible that it'd make me want to refine things/add things.

Proposed solution: have one of their coworkers turn out to be an actual transgender who is less than amused by their ruse.
That's not a proper solution. It's pandering.

In addition to hating this show based on the reasons GLAAD puts forth, it also seems to be an inherently sexist idea and on top of that a good way to lampoon "women in the workplace" without actually using women, thus making it seem okay. It's a huge clusterfuck of Hollywood bullshit. Not like this is the only shitty, sexist show on this fall, though.

it clearly (if anecdotally) implies that genes aren't the only component in gender identity.
Or it calls into question what we know about what creates identical twins.

In fact, it's possible for twins to be born as half- or semi-identical. Wouldn't be surprised if that were the case here, and at any rate, though I don't particularly subscribe to either notion (nature/nurture) I find it grossly ridiculous that so many people are instantly jumping to that conclusion.

Yo the trick to doing a sick-ass aeropress is just to boil like six cups of water and then let it sit until it isn't making steam lines or bubbling anymore. The real technique here is to use the IKEA pots that have lines inside them so you don't have to bust out the measuring cups. Then you wanna grind your beans on the spot to something resembling not-quite Turkish; I've found that actually the $15 burrrrrr grinder I got from an old housemate of ours does this really well because it's too terrible to get too small and I literally cannot overgrind those pupdogs. What's nice about coffee beans is that when you use a little scoop to get a tbsp or a solid oz the powder is actually the same amount, so don't even have a worry on that regard.

I definitely advise a good coffee to start with here. World Markets actually have really boss coffee and may be in your local metrop area under the name COST PLUS or WORLD MARKET or some combination thereof. For what is effectively a supermarket bag of nuts you get some good cups. If you live near SF go get Blue Bottle though. Otherwise try to care a lot and find some local organic importer or something. Fair trade shit is pretty uniformly delicious so long as the roasters aren't mongoloids which is rare when you care enough to think about it that much

Then you stick the damn coffee in the press. You put the water in and stir it up with the proprietary magic wand until it is smooth sailing and then look at it for, I dunno, as long as you think. Then fucking press that shit. Really get your lean on. I hope you have a sturdy mug and a solid counter because boy you are pushing your luck with this thing. Results: A+

Sometimes I like to put some cinnamon into it before I press it just for kicks.

Real talk though Starbucks is kinda shit but every single one I go to if you are nice after the first few visits your shit is freeeee or close to free. Friending my barista on Facebook was the smartest financial decision I've ever made in my life because they are letting me get away with grand larceny here. Truthfully Starbucks is way better than they once were and they still get a lot of shit for things they don't even do anymore because they improve as a business and how often can you say that? Not that I'm an apologist or anything. But beyond that Peet's is pretty boss (also for tea) and they have a lot better coffee science BTB (behind the bar) which leads to things such as: smoother lattes, more robust espressos

French presses as Norondor said require very little thought. You just grind some beans up coarse and do basically the Aeropress thing but it takes less thought. If you got grounds in your brew, it's all your fault and that's basically the issue I see when I talk to people about french presses. These people come in wanting plastic containers and bright colors and a little hole on the top to drink straight out of like it's a god damned mug and I say to them well how about a fucking hole in your head how would that be for heat dispersion and they get the glass double walls every time instead

Follower and Process follow the same design idea (steal good points from official maps) but Process does it well.

I could list other maps also.

Garbage day is one of many maps that have been crashing servers since an update quite a while ago

Another is pl_cranetop, I forget the others I was aware of

Best advice is to just remove it.

I want the Steel Jaw and the spurs, and I have those glasses. If there is a way I could get both of you, that'd be cool.
