We've all used this word to refer to someone who seemed to take much offense to whatever mature subject matter we like. I used to refer to some of my family as "prudes" because of how adverse they were to (hearing) swear words, even if they were barely used. I'd probably have close to fifty dollars if I obtained a nickel for every time I've seen that word slung around at people who aren't into their specific sexual intrigue. So on, so on, you know.

But down the road, I started to wonder what exactly being "prude" means. With many of the instances I have seen in mind, it seems to just be a buzzword utilized to demean anyone who doesn't like what you like. And honestly, as I see it, just not liking something isn't enough to really be considered "prudish". Not everyone is going to like every mature subject matter under the sun, and that really doesn't justify the word in itself. With that in mind, I guess what really determines "prudishness" is the intensity of one's reaction. But again, this brings up the issue of how the word seems to just demean someone for not liking what you like.

So, considering all that, what exactly does being "prude" entail?

Not often, if at all, due to my limited capabilities.

For some reason, this song reminds me of Adult Swim bumper music. Plus, the domino machine seemed like something you'd get a kick out of as well.

I just came up with a new way to creep out Susan: make up fantasy RPG characters off the top of my head with statistics that make sense only to the nerdiest of nerds. For example:

A level 18 moon-folk wizard with a war scepter that does +13 water damage and gives the user +5 to charisma.

Or…

A level 6 half-orc paladin with +4 to light radius and a templar’s coat that makes him immune to shadow and fire damage. Oh, and he also has a claymore that gives him +8 to wisdom and deals 50% more damage to the undead.

I love creeping out Susan. Hehe!
