RE: the $1.4 million check

It's not like anybody could *cash* it if she lost it. No bank in the *world* would let you deposit that without checking it out thoroughly. So if your name ain't on it (and you have the ID to match) you'll be talking to the cops in short order.

Cashing it? Don't make me laugh.

And the "check out thoroughly" bit means you can forget altering the name too.

So, if you lose it, yeah, you'll be in trouble. But it's not like they'll lose the money, they'd just have to write a new check.

Mind you, your name would still be mud forever, but... :-)

Non-straights reproducing:

I *know* a pair of lesbians who had a kid. They used a gay male friends as a sperm donor. Not the "clinic" type. The lesbians went at it in one bedroom, the guys went at it in another and at the critical moment he came into a turkey baster, which a mutual friend who was waiting at the door took over to the bedroom with the gals in it. One gal uses turkey baster on other, and nine months later there was a kid.

And medical science is getting close to the point where they'll be able to fertilize an egg with the DNA from another egg.

For guys, getting DNA from two guys to combine in an egg that has had the original DNA removed may be trickier. And, of course, the mitochondrial DNA will be from the egg donor, so the kid will have three *genetic* parents.

Other reasons bees may be buzzing around you. Some floral soaps/colognes smell like the flowers even to bees.

Also, bees can't see red, but can see ultraviolet. So some of the brighteners in your laundry soap (which basically turn UV from the sun, and some indoor light fixtures into a white or other color glow) may make you look more like a flower.

I dunno about celebrity blood donations...

How'd you like to find out you had Donald Trump's blood in you?

How is "I wouldn't date a trans person" any different from "I wouldn't date a redhead"? Or "I wouldn't date someone taller than I am"?

It *could* be transphobia. Or it could simply be a matter of personal preference.

People are entitled to have preferences about such things. Even if in another context those preferences might be discriminatory.

That's what things like "freedom of association" are all about, after all.

You do *not* get to tell other people who they should date.
