I agree that it generally looks okay to me :) If possible, it'd be useful to provide "what you have tried", or what sort of reaction you're worried about if you weren't tactful enough (e.g. are there any particular issues you expect family might raise, so answers could suggest ways to address that up front). Another thing that might help clarify the situation, are you just concerned about having that conversation with your cousin, or will you be asking (or expecting) your cousin to spread the news to everyone else? — Em C ♦ 14 secs ago

@Suimon Sure. There are a lot of things that are simple, but not easy. Like, dieting isn't easy. No one denies that. But if someone asks how to lose weight, that's the answer. If someone asked how to lose weight, and you replied "go on a diet", and they said, "oh yeah, that's not so easy", one could only say, "yes, it's not easy. But it's what you have to do if you want to lose weight." — Jay 1 min ago

@Noon Hmm, as to the first part, I thought that once stated it was obvious. You can't logic people out of feeling what they are feeling. Emotions simply are. So trying to talk someone out of their feelings is just going to make them angry at you on top of feeling bad about the original event. As to the second part, I thought I did say why: Because you would just turn it into a fight. Sorry if that's not clear. I'm really not sure how else to say it. Do I need to explain why you don't want to get into a fight with your girlfriend? — Jay 36 secs ago

Off topic, but you should use traceroute to determine where these high ping times are coming from.

Consider the possibility that it is the weekend, not your roommate. If you are living in an apartment complex, there might be dozens of networks around, and they interfere with each other.

@Philbo, it's more platonic than queer, I guess. However the beauty of QPR, in my experience, is that it can be a sort of catch-all term for things that go against what is considered typical. Where typical is a relationship that incorporates sex. Since the OP's relationship dynamic is not at the level of typical relationships, and also involves activities not common amongst friends, QPR fits. — Lux Claridge 1 min ago

Even if meta agreement here is that 'this belongs on IPS' I can't force the Academia mods to send it over. Your best bet would really be asking on Academia meta, and if it turns out the question is off-topic there, suggest sending it over to IPS. — Tinkeringbell ♦ 20 secs ago

This looks solid to me, but maybe drop the references to your older question in the first paragraph? I think it just distracts from what you're asking in this question and it made me worried I'd have to read a whole other question just to understand this one (when in fact this question is perfect in that it stands all on its own). Also, would "average" be a good translation of gewoontjes? — scohe001 21 secs ago

Hmm. I might just summarize that other question then, as I got a hunch the feelings of me being haughty as expressed in that other question may have carried over to the jokes... — Tinkeringbell ♦ 8 secs ago

Also maybe drop everything after the comma in the title for brevity? I think that one's a style preference though... — scohe001 38 secs ago

Is there a reason you can’t just tell her exactly what you’ve told us? Have you tried? If so how’d she react? If not, what are you worried will go wrong? — scohe001 1 min ago

@scohe001 - I haven't tried yet; I'm concerned that since I'm saying that she's essentially being... slightly overbearing, she might get offended. I want to avoid offending her. — Arwen Undómiel 22 secs ago

Considering we all agree that process which led to this too-hasty-to-be-good change was wrong (and reading this and MSE answers and comments, I'm not convinced that there's a consensus that the decision itself was right either), am I the only one bugged out with the fact the change stays for the rest of the year? I browse mainly SO, and I'm on IPS only when HNQ (or, in this case, featured meta post) leads me here, and so far I've enjoyed the experience. Could there not be some switch, or a user-modifiable flag which restores old behavior as a stopgap measure until everything is figured out? — Luke 1 min ago

This answer is freaking fantastic. "it is still a learned behaviour and many psychologists believe that someone displaying narcissistic behaviour can change. I hope your dad can change, and your refusal to comply with any such behaviour may go towards helping him "unlearn" it." This is exactly what I want to do with him. I want him to at least have the opportunity to un-learn this behavior, because the little, insecure guy behind the big facade is hurting, and he has to process all of what happened over the last 30-plus years of his life. This is really, really, well thought out. — ElizB 54 secs ago

lag is not directly the result of bandwidth exhaustion, some ISPs will move your traffic to a slower(read high latency) connection if you are using a certain amount of bandwidth. If somebody is streaming video on your internet connection, your ping will skyrocket ( I do this to myself accidentally when something is updating in the background while im gaming) — spiral succulent 46 secs ago
