So I've been spending a lot of quality time lately (time that probably should have been spent doing something productive like...er...emptying the dishwasher or contemplating the infinite) thinking about random inconsistencies in the asexual, antisexual, etc. classification system. For instance, what do you call someone who is naturally very affectionate but scared of sex? They wouldn't necessarily be asexual, since they do have the capacity to be attracted to others (perhaps I am missing part of the definition, but bear with me), and they wouldn't be antisexual since they are not against sex; they just prefer not to think about engaging in such a pursuit if society would just give it a rest. Eh, maybe I'm the only person who puts themself into this category...then again, maybe I'm just insane. (Cue Trevor madness, Sue White-style!)
This leads me (I'm not sure how, but it does) to another adjacent subject: namely, how advertising companies always inevitably resort to sexually-themed advertising. Look with a dirty enough mind at almost any modern advertising campaign, and there's the undertone, clear as shrinkwrap. Thanks to a conversation with my 2 best friends regarding this very subject I can never drink Maxwell House again...
Speaking of beverages, has anyone other than me been much too amused due to the resemblance of bubbles rising to the top of a glass of soda to a bunch of protists swimming around in pond water? I just noticed this the other day while at a restaurant and haven't ceased to be amused since.
