How do you get into a position to ask someone for casual sex without violating consent or alienating that person?
In terms of sexual ethics and feminism, how does one go about asking someone for consent to sex in a way that will not take you out of the situation? I feel like asking for consent could interrupt the spontaneity of it, but that always makes me worry that I might not be getting their consent fully; the absence of a "no" signal (be it verbal or physical) does not necessarily mean yes after all; and I'd like to know how to go about getting consent in a way that doesn't do this.

Most of my posts are tagged with a location, some of the posts do show up on the 'check-ins' map, but many do not. For example, I have locations tagged in places like Sunderland and Edinburgh, which do show up on the map, but Rothbury and Durham do not. Clicking on the actual page of the tagged locations shows them on those pages maps, but not on mine when they're tagged. Is there any way to fix this?1 AnswerFacebook4 years ago
If instead of Soviet forces fighting the Battle of Berlin, it was British and American forces. How would the battle have changed? What would the outcome have been to the Nazi leaders? How would it have changed the Cold War? Would it have meant no East and West Germany - just one single pro-west Germany as we have today?4 AnswersHistory8 years ago

Humans are obvious, but how to they rely upon humans? Food+Water? Shelter?

I mean, they chose to live next to an airport. And if they moved in knowing an airport would be built nearby, or where an airport already exists, they really have no right to complain.
Fair enough if they were living there before an airport was built or announced, they were there first and weren't expecting it.7 AnswersAircraft8 years ago
Which of the above Rolls Royce aircraft engines is more powerful, in terms of sheer thrust?3 AnswersAircraft8 years ago
So I've designed various aircraft on paper and on the computer. And I now want to make these a reality, but not with the already established aircraft companies, because I doubt that Boeing, Airbus or Lockheed would want to build another commercial wide body trijet, or 4 engined jet with 2 fuselages. I know this is going to take a lot of money, but I just want to know how to go about getting everything you'd need to do this. I.E. land for building the production facilities on, the workforce and materials needed to produce the aircraft, etc.4 AnswersCorporations8 years ago
And how far would the Third Reich extend. Say, if the Germans had captured Britain, then the British campaigns in north Africa would have eventually failed, thus the Nazi forces could secure the oil fields have then be able to produce enough resources to win the war against Russia. The planned invasion of Britain was in 1940, well before the USA entered the war against Germany, the US may have fought the war with Japan still, but would they have entered the war with the Nazis. It wouldn't seem logical for them to do so, because A) Britain has already fallen and B) the USSR is losing due to the Nazi's securing the oil fields. Plus what would have happened to Spain and Portugal, Spain at the time was under Franco, how was pro-axis after the fall of France in 1940. Plus, if Britain and the USSR were defeated by Germany, then that would leave all of Hitler's forces for the invasions of Spain and Portugal (if that would have happened). If Germany did conquer Spain/Portugal, it would have allowed him to control their overseas territories (much like with Britain's territories). Plus if all this did happen, how much of Africa would the Nazi's have tried to capture, I mean, it's not like Chad could do much against the forces of the Third Reich.
And if all this did happen and the Germans established a massive global empire, what would there relationship be with the Untied States/China? I don't think would would attack those countries, there war they'd just been in would leave them without the forces and resources to fight a war with the US. Although I think they would have developed nuclear weapons (assuming that the US wins the war with Japan the same way they did in reality - the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki).
And what would have happened to Switzerland?

So basically, I've designed an aircraft. I've drawn it up on the computer (using Paint.NET), I've drawn it in real life on paper. I've even made a model of it out of Lego. I plan to get clay so I can make a more proper model of the aircraft first. But after that I want to take it to the next level. A full plastic model. So that I can paint details onto it.
The aircraft itself is fairly unusual. It's a trijet, with 2 tail fins with 2 rudders, overhanging wings, and the elevators are at the front, near the cockpit, not next to the tail.
I just want to know if there's anywhere that would make the model (I don't have the equipment or skills to make a plastic model myself).5 AnswersAircraft8 years ago
