star trek

In the fuuuuuuuuture!

I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year, but in the spirit of things I started writing a little story to amuse myself. It's set hundreds of years into the future and I'm at a loss to come up with some names to replace words like asshat and butthead etc. It sounds like Urban Dictionary would be my go to source, but language changes so fast. What will we call future jerks and knuckleheads?

How much trigger warning do you expect / is reasonable?

basementape asked about trigger warnings in a previous post. I'd be interested to know how far you would say one should go with those warnings? Personally, I have no serious trauma or phobia, so I can't be a good judge of that. I've been in communities (LJ and elsewhere) where people said I should put a trigger warning to things as serious as rape (I'd go with that) or stuff like "family issues", violence or any kind, the death of a pet, photos of spiders, snakes, needles, whatever. Can you formulate a rule that would fit your feeling of how much should be put under a cut or trigger-warned? Like, limit it to things that are illegal (rape, violence, incest) or anything that a certain number of people find scary (clowns, spiders)? Or something else?

all that's left

When you're eating snacks that come in a bag or packet, like chips/doritos, do you throw away the bag when only crumbs remain? Or do you eat the crumbs?

Throw them away
Eat them
Depends on if anyone is watching
I don't eat things like that, and I'll tell you why
I'm vegan, let me tell you about it
