The one feature the iPad is really missing.
I don't care about the lack of camera. I never use the one on my MacBook, and even if I did the angle would be terrible on the iPad. I don't care if third party apps can't run in the background. I don't listen to streaming music. I don't care that the App Store is a closed system. I can jailbreak for myself and I think the closed system works better for most users. The one feature I want is User Accounts and a Guest Account. If this device is meant to be a coffee table computer, it needs to be able to accomadate multiple users.

Dear Sydney Reddit'ers, Would you like any changes made to the style of this subreddit?
I was going to subtly edit the style of the Sydney subreddit but then I found this post and realised that people have very strong opinions about how their reddit should look. So before I make any changes do you have any opinions or suggestions?

I skipped bail, ran away, and never got caught. AM(A)A.
Long/short story, I went to work in the United States in the last 90s and was busted in a major drug raid. I risked up to lifetime in jail if caught since I was associated with so many crimes; at the bare minimum, said my attorney, I was looking at 7 years in jail, and much more likely more than this. My attorney said I was in a lot of trouble. He was the first to bring it up. I did not want to lose 10, 15 or 25 years of my life in jail, especially at my age. Since I was not a United States citizen, I should simply skip bail and run away. And never come back. My bail was initially supposed to be $300,000 but my attorney managed to get the judge to set a final bail of $100,000. He explained I was a trustworthy person, lawfully employed, who never did anything wrong and never committed any crime. He portrayed me as someone trustworthy and intelligent who could take care of his responsibilities. The judge agreed and decided on a very low bail, especially for the crimes I was accused of. I still did not have so much money and had to hire a bondsman, who agreed to cover my bail for $15,000. It took three days to manage to get the money to pay both him and my attorney (I had to pay my attorney, or he would have revealed my plan to authorities). I got as much cash as I could, as quickly as I could, mostly pawning most of my stuff (even some stuff I was not done paying), and getting away with a simple bag. I had no passport (confiscated), but a few friends on the not-so-right side of the law. It costed me quite a bit, but I was able to take someone's identity long enough to make it back to a country next to mine, and then take a train to my country. I destroyed evidence and promptly reported to my government, got a new passport and, very quickly, a new job. I never came back to the United States or even thought about going back there. Last time I heard about the people who were arrested along with me, they were all convicted, and in jail. I consider myself very lucky, and happy. I've been living for over 10 years now happily and freely. It's crazy to think I could have spent this last decade in jail. I consider couldn't even imagine what my life would have looked like had I been convicted. It's crazy to spend so much of your life in jail, all due to a stupid mistake. I don't make excuses for my crime, but I do smile thinking about it. I've never been extraded/harassed in any way or shape (not even from the bondsman). AMAA.

Programmers, do you put your comments (before|after) the related code?
Inspired by: In the several years I've been writing code, I have never seen someone write comments after code until that comment. The thought of doing that had never occurred to me either. On reading the comment's code snippet, it seemed to make more sense to me having the comment after the code. Ie, "here's the code, now we'll explain" instead of "here's what's going on, now here's the code". Do you put your comments before or after your lines/blocks of code?

Since we're on the topic of Australian Politics, and electoral systems...
I was curious, can you cast a "non-ballot" here? And if you can, does it result in a forced reform/ dissolve of current political parties? Edit: "Casting your vote" was wrong, (shame), apparently I was looking for "Donkey vote", and in finding that, my first question was ultimately answered. Edit: The term I was looking for was "casting a non-vote".

How sure are we that there were never any intelligent dinosaurs?
I'm posting this under a throwaway account so my friends don't learn how retarded I am by posing this question. I was thinking the other day about how humans are responsible (either directly through hunting or indirectly through climate change/deforestation) for the extinction of a whole lot of species. If we keep growing at this rate, we'll have issues of overpopulation and maybe even a mass extinction, no? And intelligent humans have only been around for far less than a million years. Secondly, 65 million years is a really, really long time. How long will it take for all remnants of human civilization to be erased from the earth? Thousands of years? Maybe a few million, at most? The World Without Us says that "After 500 years all that would be left would be aluminum dishwasher parts, stainless steel cookware, and plastic handles." How long until these legacies are also destroyed? Third, we're still discovering new species of dinosaur on a pretty regular basis, aren't we? And if an "intelligent" dinosaur only existed for a short period of time before reaching overpopulation and going extinct, there would be pretty slim odds of fossilization, no? Finally, I'm not discussing a civilization that is exploring space and building computers. But could dinosaurs have existed that engaged in primitive agriculture or herding practices? Maybe even had a spoken language?

I'm confused, is Obama for offshore drilling or not?
It seemed during his SOTU address he was for offshore drilling but repeatedly during his campaign he bashed Bush and McCain for their pro-offshore drilling stance...I've done a little of my own research and found his clip where he was saying no to offshore drilling and I've got this quote from his SOTU address: >It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development. It means continued investment in advanced biofuels and clean coal technologies. But I was hoping some people more knowledgeable than myself could help me find some answers. Thanks!

Hello reddit. This is a fake account. Thank you for keeping me alive
I have an account here. I enjoy the laughs, arguments, being corrected when wrong. The past years have been devastating to me. I am fairly isolated for numerous reasons. It includes mental health, though for me this has only enhanced questioning. I have to question myself too. I don't need no friends. It's a good idea for me and for others.

I love my boyfriend because he's a good person deep down, very sweet sometimes and cute as a button. However, we've been together 6 months and counting, and he's never really taken me out on a date. We went out a couple weeks ago for our 6 month anniversary, which was the first time we'd ever been out to dinner alone together where he did pay. Other than that, we're usually holed up in my apartment, watching TV and having sex and fighting about nothing. Help me. I love him, I take care of him when I can, and I'm just as broke as he is. I'm not asking for diamonds and fancy dinners, just a date once a week or once in a while. I'm bored. I mean screw dinner if you're broke but you'd think he'd "plan" a night together just once that didn't involve my futon? I feel as if he thinks I don't deserve it or something...

Am I the only one who thinks my co-worker needs a shot of self-esteem?
My co-worker recently found out that her husband has been cheating on her regularly for over a year with a woman he works with. Works CLOSELY with. And refuses to stop working closely with her. This is the second time my co-worker found out about their affair. The first time was about two years ago and he promised it was over, it was with the same woman. So now he says that they will stop the affair but that they (her husband and his fling) need to keep working together and he's not willing to stop working together. My co-worker says they're going to try to work on their relationship and she accepts this. Am I the only one who thinks she's COMPLETELY FUCKED UP??? This is a second marriage for both of them and they have no kids together. EDIT: Is this one of those train-wrecks you just have to stand by and watch, or is there something appropriate to do or say for a friend and co-worker?

Maybe this is more of a whine about the political situation more than anything, but I went back to read the Communist Manifesto for the first time since my junior year in college. It got me thinking a lot about who I am and what are my ideal world views. I feel like there is a lot more, now, than ever before that I agree with in the analysis about the world works. I feel kind of weird finding a lot of solace in the words of Marx. I think I am going to expand my socialist/communist reading.

Is the internet speed in the US really that bad?
I've been seeing a lot of articles about how X country's internet is Y times faster than the internet in the United States or X country proposed new internet legislation that will make their nationwide internet Y times faster than the internet in the U.S. But really, is the internet in the U.S. that bad? I mean, I have Comcast. I just ran a speedtest and got a ping of 53ms, downspeed of 23.03Mb/s, and upspeed of 3.00Mb/s. Admittedly, it's a good day for internet speed, but I rarely get below 12Mb/s downspeed. I don't download media illegally. I enjoy Hulu and Youtube. I play MMORPG's and download Linux CD images. Sometimes I download or torrent games and updates legally, and it takes a little patience, but I don't mind. But for consumer internet, I have no complaints with my speed. I don't know. I got first got the internet when I was in early grade school, back in the early 90's, before anyone else I knew got it. My ISP was IDT. THAT was slow internet. A WEBSITE with PICTURES? You'd be waiting a few minutes. Is our internet really that bad? Do we really need faster internet? I hear a lot of complaints, but I don't see the need when there's so many better things we should invest in like health care or education.

Ask /r/Philosophy: Do you think you are enlightened?
In the shower today, I was recollecting on how very few enlightened persons there are. My personal list includes people like Buddah, Jesus, and Alan Watts. Very, very few people compared to the masses. But then I proposed that perhaps there have been far more enlightened people than I give credit to. There may be many people who are indeed enlightened, but don't step into the spotlight - they live their entire lives and fade away without recognition. So I'm curious if people in this subreddit think they are enlightened? The question is purposefully vague - use your own metrics of what you think "enlightenment" is.

Need some wisdom. Got in my first accident, a hit & run, Friday night.
Its my first accident. The other driver ran a red and hit me in the intersection. Luckily I wasn't injured but none of the other cars at the intersection stopped to make sure everything was fine or stay and be witnesses. The other driver never even stopped his car. I flagged down another car and got them to follow before he completely disappeared. He only went a block away, so I got the license plate number and the police found the car soon after. Now, I don't know anything about the other driver. I don't have his insurance info and I only have liability since I'm a college student and the car wasn't worth a lot (92 Jeep Cherokee). I think its totaled and I won't be able to replace it until (if) I get some money. Pretty much the only thing the officer told me was they found the car, they have a suspect and an investigator should call me this week. I don't know how soon any of this will be settled or what I should be doing now. Can the reddit community offer me any advice or wisdom?

Please help me figure out why it's so tough for me to connect to Valve games. It's driving me insane.
4 times out of 5, when I try to connect to a Valve game (TF2, L4D, L4D2), I'll be able to join a game lobby with no problem whatsoever.

I have the cutest little 12lb bichon frise dog,named Lilly. However, she has lately done this most disturbing thing: buring her 'treasures' in my bed! Sometimes we find them in other parts of the house, under other beds, but she chooses to physically put them under my covers! I find them when I pull the covers down, so she has to pull the covers down, place the treasure there, and then pull the covers back up over them! I have found, now for the 2nd time, a horrifying site in my bed of 'buried' food! The first time was when she got into some BBQ rib bones in the trash while we were gone, and then she hid them UNDER my covers! It was so horrifying! Then, tonight, I got home, and found my bed messed up, and then I tentatively pulled back the covers to find (uncooked) RAMEN NOODLES under the covers! Has this ever happened to anyone else? Is she hiding them for herself, or for me I wonder..? What stories do you have?

A point about fine-tuning of the universe
Fine-tuning is often brought up by theologians as an evidence of God's existence. I can respond to anyone who uses this argument in several different ways and I believe that you guys are able to do so too, but I have thought of this new (as far as I know) refutation (or explanation) some days ago and I thought I'd share it with you. so Theologians would say that god is the reason why the constants of the universe are fine-tuned, but what if the constants are the way they are because they are only "results" of an underling mechanism of the universe. A good example of my argument would be the mathematical constant pi, I think it is safe to say that if pi was different by only (10^-1000)% we would not have perfect circles in the universe. Of course, as most of you would point out, circles (perfect ones to be exact) do not depend on the value of pi, it is pi that depends circles. I hope I made it clear enough.

[Offer] Round 2: I'll transcribe a song for you on Guitar/Bass
The first offer garnered a lot of responses so I thought I'd try again. I replied to a few requests in the comments and sent out about 10 tabs through PM's. Sorry if I didn't get to your song - there were way more requests than I could possibly keep up with. Feel free to re-request in here. This time I'm going to simplify things. I will tab/transcribe the chords for any song that you can't find the music for online, but I'd like to stick with simpler songs. The idea behind this is to help novice musicians - I had some requests last time for intricate guitar solos, which says to me the person is either trolling or just too lazy to figure it out on their own so I'm not going to waste my time. If you can't figure out a 10 minute guitar solo on your own you probably won't be able to play it anyways, even given a tab. That being said I will do my best to figure out the chords to any song you might like to play/sing along with. Last time I figured out some piano based music and transcribed it for guitar, and I am willing to do that again. EDIT: Before requesting a song Google it. There's no need for me to tab something when it's already available.

I have a basic exponential function a*b^t, and wanted to solve for when the integral of it matches a certain value, In other words: c = a/(t+1)*b^(t+1) put in another form, the problem I'm basically trying to solve is: x = ab^x I suppose I could resort back to Newton's method if I need to but is there any way to solve this otherwise?

The sound makes me think the garage is shaking.
I have new carpet and seats to put in my 27 yo car. Plush leather power seats and a nice new carpet that doesn't stink. I put the engine in 8 years ago (twice the the HP, twice the torque)... replaced an in-line 4cyl with a corvette aluminum V8. Why? Why did I do it? Need to get back at it; very boring work and it's a hobby. Isn't supposed to be fun? It would have been years ago. EDIT: I have my PC in the garage hooked up to my amplifier with SOMA FM "Drone Zone" playing; really makes things seem so futile.

I quit drinking soda cold turkey. I'm on day 5.
After reading this thread and the comments under it, I decided to stop drinking sodas as an attempt to begin living healthier. I kept the rules simple: drink nothing I consider to be a soda. Not the most precise way of going about it, but this included a carbonated, sugary drinks laden with HFCS and caffeine. I was a total addict. I would drink about 3 or more cans a day of soda, usually Coke or Dr Pepper. I would feel shitty and upset until I got a soda at lunch, which would make me feel wonderful. I loved the way it tasted, I loved the way my lunch tasted with it. Even though I am skinny, I was afraid that if my metabolism started slowing down, so much soda meant I would quickly pack on weight. Also, with the ridiculous amounts of sugar, diabetes was always a scary but real danger. So I decided begin a healthy revolution for myself by not drinking sodas. Day one went without incident. I grabbed a metal bottle and filled it with water, and this bottle has followed me throughout. I drank water for lunch and meals, but I wasn't particularly thirsty the whole day. I missed the taste of soda. I started getting a headache by the end of the day. Day two was terrible. I was tired, and felt disconnected from reality. I had a constant headache, and it got worse throughout the day. Anti-headache medicines could not fight my body's wrath at the sudden starvation of sugar and caffeine. In a desperate effort to stave off headaches, I got some coffee to see if my body would take the peace offering of caffeine through a medium that isn't soda. This made things worse, as soon I found myself shaking (as coffee usually makes me do) and I still had a headache. I shook myself to sleep. Day three might have been the worst. My headaches from day two carried over, but were dulled a bit. Some excedrin kept them away for a bit. But while in my blessed excedrin-high, I decided to get some sexual release, and I was slammed with the worst headache of my life. I could feel this headache bearing down on the top of my head, like nothing I had ever felt before. I tried to sleep, but laying down didn't seem to stop this monster of a headache. I eventually got to sleep, and when I woke up, the typical dull headaches were back. My body was not happy with me. Day four was better. I had even lesser headaches, and some advil seemed to end them one hundred percent. I started actually being thirsty for water, and not just drinking it at meals because I am American and I have to drink *something* at meals. I drank water and enjoyed it. As the night went on, my headaches seemed to go away. And here I am, living through day five. I haven't had a headache today, and I've had my trusty metal water bottle by my side to keep me hydrated. I didn't talk to any doctors or nutritionists before doing this, and some redditors may find some things that I did very wrong, but I feel like I achieved my goal. I'm hoping as time goes on, I'll feel healthier. My eating habits aren't particularly stellar, but this is a good place to start.

What does it mean when women play games at the start of a relationship?
I met a great girl, asked her out, and we had an amazing first date. Super fun, lots of laughing, and I felt like we made a great connection. I mean it was one of the best first dates I had ever had. Now I think I must have totally misread the situation... (or blown it somehow, even though I haven't seen her since). The problem is communication. Since that date she has barely responded to any of my attempts to talk to her. That doesn't seem like the behavior of someone who is interested in me. I don't think I have been over the top in my attempts either. I waited a couple days, tried calling her, no answer, tried emailing her, no answer, etc. I ended up texting her as a last resort, saying something along the lines of "I want to see you again, but I can't seem to get ahold of you." So finally she texts back saying she has been busy but we should get together again on the weekend. I reply and ask what she is up to on Sat night. She says she might have plans and she will let me know. Then she never even bothers to let me know. WTF! That's just rude. So what's the verdict? Lost cause or worth pursuing? I can never make sense of these games... and I don't know if I'm better off asking her what the deal is or just waiting for her to contact me. Obviously I like her or I wouldn't even care I guess.

A different way to "wake-up" the nexus one?
I just got my n1 today! I have tons of questions, but the main one is "is there a way to wake-up the N1 without having to press that top sleep button again?"

[0] Something I've noticed when it comes to why r/Trees is better than r/Marijuana
I'm subscribed to both Trees and Marijuana and I've seen this type of comment very often, whether it's because of a picture like the one in the link or just a stoner comment that someone decided to post. I find that it's really stupid to say stuff like that because whether we like it or not, the stoner stereotype exists. Pretending that it doesn't exist and insulting those who subscribe to the stereotype is detrimental to the marijuana community. I don't understand what people who make/agree to those comments want in the world. Do they want every stoner to disappear from public? Are we supposed to reveal our marijuana use only if we're people with a disease that's alleviated by smoking weed? Wanting to do so is to want to twist reality and information, which is exactly what happened with marijuana when the government were/is trying to scare people away from it. Do they want this to happen again? This is why I like Trees so much. We embrace the stoner stereotype and we're chill. I love you guuuuuuuuyyyyysss.

Shreddit, do you have a favorite gimmick to go along with your metal?
A lyrical gimmick, silly fashion statements, corpsepaint, some little musical thing? I, personally, am a big fan of lyrics based on literature, especially when those lyrics happen to be focused on H.P. Lovecraft/The Cthulhu mythos or Lord of the Rings. It only makes me happier when it goes beyond the lyrics, too (Like with Summoning for Lord of the Rings, or Portal for the Cthulhu mythos.).

Reddit have you ever read a book that changed your life? What book and how did it change your life?
I am posting this in an effort to find a really great book to read and maybe shake this rut I've been in before my first child is born in 4 months. Oddly enough I just realized the only book that changed my life was Catcher in the Rye. I know realize I will probably get a lot of people saying the same or thinking I posted the question in honour of J.D. Salinger, but I'd love to get some non-catcher suggestions. I've considered reading it again but somehow I don't think it will have the same effect on a 32 year old as it did on a 12 year old (and again at at around 16ish). Actually I'm a little worried reading it as an adult I might enjoy it much less and ruin the memory I have had of it for so long. Anyway looking forward to some interesting suggestion.

Collectors - What do you collect and why?
Curious why we collect things. I have collected various things over the years. Currently I collect die-cast cars - mainly because I love cars, but the urge/need to have all of something seems to take over. I have several hundred of them (of all scales), but have run out of room to display them, so I have stopped. So, what do you collect, why, for how long, and how do you keep track of it?

Public laundry: taking out other people's clothes if the machine is done?
What's the decorum here? I have an idea for timers that keep counting when the laundry is done, so you don't take out somebody's clothes that just finished. There should at least be a 30-60min grace period for laundry- if you have to take other people's out. Personally I just wait it out. I think throwing peoples wet clothes on other dusty machines or a table is defeating the purpose of washing clothes.

Did the movie The Book of Eli piss anyone else off?
So I saw this movie and even though it was predictable what it was about I was hoping for some sort of twist at the end. Pissed me off the ending did... here is how it went... *ATTENTION SPOILER ALERT IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW DON'T READ ANY FURTHER, you have been warned* Okay so its in an apocalyptic world, I don't remember any explanation as to what caused the war but since they said people burned all the bibles I can only guess it was a religious war. Okay so you've got Eli, a loner traveling "west" who has the last fucking bible in the world(assumption) and it seems to make him a bad ass motherfucking soldier of god who seems immune to bullets almost. That alone is enough to piss me off, way to go asshole keep one of the most fucked up, hypocritical, terrifyingly nonsensical books alive to promote future delusion and bigotry. My friend stated that wasn't his intention that he wanted to do the opposite to keep its memory alive so that people can see the danger of such beliefs, but no its obvious that wasn't the message of the movie because the guy who memorized the fucking bible is the strongest, the most righteous person in the world. whats further annoying is the scene where Mila Kunis(damn shes hot but it was a bit of a turnoff seeing her in this character) so he teaches her about prayer and god a little bit, and her life seems to have more depth and meaning since. The antagonist who actually sees the bible for what it is, a tool of enslavement, I'm guessing hes the evil and stupid atheist aye. Oh and Eli turns out to be blind, dies at the museum where the fucker preserves the damn thing, and Solara I'm guessing is leaving to spread the message that or to my best guess to go save her mom. This concludes my rant. Probably stupid but hey just felt bored and wanted to post something.

I hit 80 as a rogue a few weeks ago and have been running Heroics ever since trying to gear him out. I'm combat and can churn out anywhere from 2.3-2.9k DPS depending on buffs in heroics.

An anecdote from someone new to beer snobbery
Today I went the supermarket across the street from my apartment to get some beer, they have a surprisingly wide selection. I remember seeing someone a week or two ago saying their Scottish (?) father always spoke poorly about American beers until he had a select few. I remember seeing Arrogant Bastard Ale on the list of beers that turned him and discovered today it was sold by the pint at the supermarket (which is called Food Dimensions, by the way.) So I bought one pint of it (it's a bit pricey) and a 6 pack of PBR pints because it's cheap and I like it. The ABA was warm so I popped it in the fridge and drank one of the cold PBRs. When I was done, I cracked open the Arrogant Bastard and *hot damn* that stuff is good! Now I have 5 pints of PBR that taste like garbage by comparison. So, /r/Beer, what are some other American brewed beers that can be found with relative ease? I'm willing to try any variety. If the list runs short on American beers start naming off some of your import (or export) favorites. *edit* I live in Brooklyn.

TIL that measuring flour for biscuits is an art and best done by weight (108g/cup).
For those who are trying do economize by making food from scratch there is a right way to measure flour. If you do it wrong everything you make will be rock hard. Scoop the flour out and gently pour it into the measuring cup until it overflows. Scrap the excess off with a knife being careful not to pack or tap the measuring cup. Doing it this way should yield 108g of flour per cup. Doing it by just scooping and tapping will yield 156g of flour per cup, biscuits that don't rise and flour tasting cookies. Bon appétit!

Much like my iPod, or the last Blackberry I had, I cannot really hold them because they have metal surfaces and parts on them.

Reddit, my husband won't have sex with me...
I've tried to work this out by talking to him, as well as just shrugging it off, and it has gotten me nowhere. Reddit, it's starting to take its toll on me, and I need advice on how to handle this. Our relationship has been absolutely wonderful; There is 100% trust and honesty, we're completely in love and happy together, and up until about 5-6 months ago (we married 3 months ago), it was beautifully expressed in the bedroom. Frequently. Our marriage was not consummated until days after our honeymoon (though I sure as hell tried). Also, it has been three weeks since our last sexual encounter and he has not once even *hinted* that he was interested in having sex with me. I really appreciate that he reminds me - several times a day, even - how attracted he is to me, but I need physical reassurance from him. When I hint, make gestures, or ask if he wants to have sex, he turns it down. We take showers together occasionally, and that never even seems to faze him. There's never a reason or excuse as to why. Sometimes he offers to give me oral instead, but I know it's out of guilt or pity, so I never agree. I won't enjoy it as much if it seems like a chore to him. When I'm feeling frisky, I'll give him head, but it's rarely reciprocated and it never leads to sex. I am just stumped by this "problem". He's a healthy, happy 23 year old. He's not depressed or on any medication, and I know for a fact that he is not cheating on me. As I stated earlier, we have a very solid foundation. (if you're still skeptical: we recently moved to another state, so there is nobody to cheat on me with anyway.) Even though I know how stupid this sounds, but the more he refuses, the more I feel as if he doesn't find me sexually appealing anymore. I've *always* been confident on my appearances, but to have my new spouse not want to touch me is pretty upsetting. Do you guys or girls have any idea what is going on here? Have any of you experienced this? EDIT:: Thank you thank you thank you. Many of you have been extremely helpful. I will be giving a lot of thought into the advice I've been given. I just want to clear up a couple things. 1) We had sex regularly before the marriage, up until a couple months before. We just hadn't made the marriage complete -hence consummated- until days days after the honeymoon. 2) Still. I stick by the no-cheating thing. I am unemployed, he has work a few times a week. Other than that, we are both home with each other. He doesn't spend time on a computer.. the only one we have is my laptop and he hardly uses it. If I were to ever doubt it, I know his passwords. 3) He's not gay. And I am not naive to this type of thing. Also: I have not gotten fat. I am 5'2 and ~100lbs. Nor is he a shallow person. 4) I will get to replying to some of you, but I have some errands to run.

How should I approach my girlfriend about blowjobs?
I feel really childish and selfish for asking this question, but the truth is that although I'm a 23 year old male who has been going out with my girlfriend since high-school began, I have yet to receive oral sex from her. We have sex regularly and she enjoys it as much if not more than I do. We've crossed many barriers in our relationship and I have kept honesty first. However, I can't seem to figure out how to approach her about getting a blowjob. I don't want her to think I'm selfish, and although conversations have began (of her own accord) regarding "returning the favor" those conversations end quickly and she forgets them. It would help to mention that when she was little she was raped by a close family member, so she may be scared (or something) of blowjobs. She's alluded to this many times as being the reason but her responses aren't sufficient. Am I being a jerk for wanting something in return? Should I just ignore it and move on, or should I approach her about it? How can I do it without seeming like a total dick? EDIT: Thanks, reddit. I got the advice I think I needed.
