I came here to post pictures of the Simpson's episode when Homer thought bart was gay. Homer took him to the steel factory. All big guys doing what steel workers do, then they took the break and started dancing....
That was pretty funny.

I figured most of the male characters in this book were gay in the first place- no really, I've read them all and that was my honest impression. Maybe it's just the British thing...

Oh yeah; my sensors caught that one; no prob. Just at work and little time to revisit the boards. But you have put me in a dilemma; I'm confused on whether I should defend gays or trekkies. And I'm not sure if I can do both at the same time.

BearToy: I've been doing C language programming for the last 25 years. I wasted most of Monday looking at:

if( index->node = thisnode->next )
{
index->node = thisnode->next->prev;
}

...somehow failing to realize that I was setting index->node rather than checking it.
An absolute beginner's mistake.
I guess my mother's and her mother's early onset Alzheimer's is starting.

What the hell kind of ass compiler are you using? I don't even know of a compiler that doesn't pop a warning with something like that. That was your n00b mistake if anything.

Krynnite: Another one of the gays here who at first thought, "Okay so he's gay." And then thought "Oh great, everyone's going to think Dumbledore was a pedophile."

Well he is holding that scroll with all those kids' names on it. That's kind of creepy.

I think it would be cool to get inked, but not with a Dumbledore.

Problem though is then I would not be able to give blood. One of the qualifying questions is whether you have received any tatoos.

Turn on the -Wparentheses option on your gnu compiler and it will warn you about these situations.

Or just move up to C++ and you'll never have to write list operations again plus you can still make use of all those thousands of lines of C you have laying around.

Draekal: poehitman: I'm an anime fan, probably a bigger one than she is. But I would NEVER tattoo an anime character on my body. I would never tattoo ANYTHING on my body. Why anyone would want to disfigure their body like that I do not know.

I dunno, a tattoo of Ulquiorra or Kenpachi would be pretty sweet even at 100


Nah, I'd get one of Kon.
/end sarcasm

I'll admit it, I also have a tattoo for Dumbledore. I'm a HP fanatic - I got it right after Half-Blood Prince. It's a phoenix, though, not some dead guy's face.

More proof that people only get the dumbest things possible tattooed on themselves. Most of us stopped drawing on ourselves with ink around 7th grade.

That's only for a few months afterwards I think. Over here they ask if you've had a tattoo in the last six months. Presumably long enough for blood infection symptoms to appear.

BearToy: After losing friends I'd known longer than him and having my family disown me, I had to excuse myself to the restroom because there was something in my eye.

That's a pretty sweet story.

I used to be pretty homophobic, till I met a gay guy who had cared for his partner as his partner was dying of AIDS (they were always safe and he didn't have it, though).

He'd spent months changing bedpans, etc., and when his partner died he was just crushed. After that I didn't doubt that homosexuals love each other just as much as us "breeders".

I hope if a friend of mine ever comes out, I'll be as cool as your friend was.

Doesn't really matter your sexual orientation, just more that your human and human behavoir is a myriad of things.

toetag: RE: BearToy another coming out story that I've always thought rather humorous.

My sister's best friend (basically an older sister and family member after all the years) asked if she could take me to lunch one day. I'm all about free food. While eating she proceeds to ask me about this young lady I took to a dance one year. My date that night and I were just friends (i was after her sister, who proceeded to shack up with the Tennis coach, quit school, go to europe and marry the tennis coach).

At the end of the 20 questions, she proceeds to do the whole "I'd never do anything to hurt you" talk and i gave her the "Dumb Dog Tilt Your Head Look".

Finally, she gets to the reason for the lunch. "I'm gay and I'd like to ask your date that night out, she's gay. I don't want to hurt you though".

She waited for my response to which i replied. "She's gay? Hell, i knew you were but not her."

Sister best friend was shocked i didn't know my date was gay but i had known all along about her being gay. She got the girl, Tennis coach got the sister and I got a free lunch.

//probably only funny to me though


You might at least have held out for a threesome!

Jebus. Cut the bear some slack. He's feeling emotional after telling that story.

That is about as tolerant as using calling someone a fag.

In light of this revelation, if you go back through The Deathly Hallows and substitute the word wang for wand, wherever it appears in the book, double-entendrelarity ensues.

/The Elder Wang, known throughout history as the "Deathstick" and the "Wang of Destiny", is an extremely powerful magic wang made of elder wood....../

For one fine second, I am happy to be coding in C#. Seriously, the language sucks in all kinds of ways, but at least the compiler catches that crap.

I really prefer other languages that don't use "=" for assignment. Like languages that use ":=" for assignment.

tokyogirl79: BearToy: So maybe one more person will wonder why someone they thought was totally awesome is in any way different once it is known what gender they prefer.

My coming out was awful. Dreadful. A complete nightmare. One of the last people I told was my best friend at the time, Marty. We were in a little restaurant somewhere for lunch and I struggled to find a way to tell him. Finally I just stared down at my Fettuccine Alfredo to avoid his eyes and blurted out, "I'm gay.". There was silence for the longest time. Just silence. Finally he looked up from a second browse of the menu and said, "Hey, they have thin crust pizza here now!" Dumbfounded I asked, "Did you HEAR me?" "Yeah, you said you're gay. I don't see how who you like to have sex with has anything to do with our friendship. Do you want to see a movie this afternoon?"

After losing friends I'd known longer than him and having my family disown me, I had to excuse myself to the restroom because there was something in my eye.

That's a great friend there. I'm sorry that you had such a hard time coming out. I know that sounds weak, but I mean it.

I agree- I don't see why anyone should like Dumbledore any less because he is gay.


This.

I guess I got lucky. *Almost* all of my friends and my whole family (my parents at least) supported me when I came out. The only one who seems to have a problem with this is an ex from a while ago (a woman) when I was still figuring things out. Granted, it wasn't fair to her, but unfortunately nothing's perfect in a world where we're taught to fear the unusual or different.

No C++ compiler would give you a warning for that. It's a totally valid statement. When you set the node on index to the node of thisindex, that statement returns the new value, which is then checked in the if statement (basically, is this value 0 or non-zero?) and all is well.

Are we really surprised to find out that Harry Potter characters are gay?

1)They wear robes (a la Robert Reed)

2)They spend time at "portals" in the bathroom

3)Large, bearish men have cabins where children visit at night

4)Never once did Harry ask Hermione to see her waa-hoo

sotua: Same thing can happen with boolean vars in java.

The whole "assignment returns the value" convention in C-derived languages is retarded anyways, particularly when the language uses nearly-identical syntax for assignment and equality. The amount of bugs it produces is seriously not worth the slight space-saving feature of
a = b = c.

The dumbest part is that cases where a smalltalkish "and return reference to self instead of void" when doing operations would actually be intelligent and appropriate (like for collection operations) is where suddenly the designers decided that you should have to type the variable name for each operation.

in short,

a = b = c is included, even though it creates a whole class of horrifying bugs.

but we have to type
myList = new List();
myList.Set("foo", bar);
myList.Set("baaz", quux);
myList.Sort();

instead of being able to chain those method calls as
myList = new List()
.Set("foo",bar)
.Set("baaz", quux)
.Sort();

Which doesn't have anything like the same kind of horrible bug-inducing syntactic confusion as the damned equality/assignment conflation.

Totally freaking backwards.

stonicus: No C++ compiler would give you a warning for that. It's a totally valid statement.

It's a valid statement but also a common mistake. All compilers I know if will issue a warning. Even C++.

Example using gcc:
warning: suggest parentheses around assignment used as truth value

Example using MSVC:
warning C4706: assignment within conditional expression

beartoy - Man, I don't understand why friends and family can react so negatively when someone is "outed".

My condolences to all who have lost friends and family because they are too small minded to accept who you love.

My church is all about acceptance, and we have a large group of gay/lesbian/bisexuals...

Your life is yours to live, and fark what other people think!

Compilers can give warnings for anything they want. What a valid compiler cannot do is refuse to compile statements like "if (a=b)". Warning: yes. Error: no.

The gnu C++ compiler will generate a warning for beartoy's code when you use -Wparentheses option.

That's the same fallacious argument many blacks use to justify the use of the the word nigah. While I would never be in favor of an outright ban on any word, I reserve the right to call someone on their lack of class.

I'm not claiming a wealth of class but I try to use trashy terms sparingly, you coont. :-)

I get it. I was just being a smart ass. I decided against programming (chose networking instead) because I'd wake up in the middle of the night with possible solutions for problems. I'm way too obsessive to be a code writer.

BearToy,

Similar experience in my life, except as the child instead of the parent. In fact, except for the weird religious thing, I sort of identify with your eldest daughter.

It's not that I'm not grateful for being alive (I assume existence is better than non-existence), but I am still, almost 20 years after the fact, really annoyed at my father for putting me, my mom and our entire family through a long, drawn out emotional hell because he was too gutless to accept who he was.

The way I look at it, I can understand not being able to actively be gay in a town like Detroit back in those days, but at the same time I don't understand what he did to my mother and by extension, me (I'm the one that had to comfort her and sometimes bear the brunt of her frustrations). No one was twisting his arm to get married and have kids - in fact, it's not even that he's gay that annoys me so much, it's how he dragged so many people in to his own little emotional mess.

Basically, I look upon it as a sign of weakness and for better or worse, it shaped me growing up as a teenager and influenced the adult that I am today. I guess that's one thing I can thank Dad for - I face my own problems and solve them.

In any case, I don't hate my Dad - I was mad at him, ridiculed him in my own head for many years, even scorned him a little bit, but never really hated him. Now that so much time has passed most of those feelings are pretty dull, but one thing is for certain - I'm never going to have a real, normalized relationship with him.

I'm just saying that the chances are pretty high that your daughter might never have any sort of relationship with you and frankly, there's a high probability that you're the one who messed her up so badly, not your relatives. Trust me on this one - I had a lot of problems as a teenager/young adult that I can directly attribute to my Dad abandoning our family and for me, the one single thing that my Dad ever did that made me think any better of him was when going on 19 years after the fact he finally honestly apologized to me and admitted that he farked up.

That one single act probably did more to let me put aside a lot of my negative feelings for my Dad than any other excuse or rationalization he offered me over the previous 2 decades.

Now I'm not saying your situation is similar or what not, but for some reason I wanted to express this to you. I guess it's because I felt like when you talked about your eldest kid, it was with mourning of the relationship, but not really with the concern of a parent that caused their kid pain. I could be wrong, hell I probably am, but like I said - I identify with your girl.
 
2007-10-25 12:03:14 PM
But the factory worker has been the butt of jokes ever since Harry Potter author JK Rowling revealed last week that Dumbledore was in love with a fellow male sorcerer.

So nobody laughed at him until the outing? Yeah, right.

BTW, that looks like a pretty good tat for the $$$.
