Home Game/Killing Floor - Week 32

If you want to write on the topics for the week:

Intersubjectivity, Shibusa, rapture of the deep, captcha the flag, the bystander effect, Overwatch

But are not currently a contestant - this is the place for you!

Just link your entries here!

This is also the place for constructive criticism of those pieces.

If you submit at least one entry *and* give constructive criticism on someone else's piece OR just give constructive criticism on *two* different pieces - you are eligible to send me a vote to give a contestant immunity this week!

With the amount of contestants dwindling, that's a lot of power in your hands! So I hope you take advantage of it by participating!

Green Room - Week 32 - Day 4

Today is the last day of the Marriage Ban in Florida!

Granted, there are going to be "hold out" counties who are going to drag their feet and declare that they are "unable to hold marriages due to budgetary issues", but they will still be issuing the licenses.

On one hand, it's amazing that this has been as big of an issue as it has been in the United States for so long... on the other, I've seen such an incredible shift in people's feelings in my lifetime that it's like I'm staring at a different planet!

Congratulations to my home state for finally getting it right, even if you had to be forced by the court to do it...

A few generations from now, people are going to look back at all of this - and I hope that they laugh at "how silly people were" rather than be disgusted.

One thing that people will look back on with AWE is your entries for this week: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/820156.html
