    • Rape by Fraud

      New Jersey attempts to pass a law which will make lying to someone to convince them to have sex with you a rape. Yury brings up an interesting example of how if two twin brothers switch positions during sex with a single brothers wife is considered rape by fraud. We talk about the various implications of rape by fraud.

    • Russian Superstitions

      If one person accidentally steps on another person’s foot, it is common for the person who was stepped on to lightly step on the foot of the person who stepped first. It is said that they thus avoid a future conflict.

      Many Russians consider giving gifts of sharp objects, like knives or scissors, to be taboo. This taboo may be avoided by the donor taking a symbolic payment, for example one Russian ruble, in exchange as if it is a trade, not a gift.

      It is often considered taboo to step over people, or parts of their body, who are on the ground. It is often said that it will prevent the person from growing (if they are not fully grown already). It is better to politely ask the person to move or to find a way around them. If one accidentally steps over a person (or people), it is sometimes standard to step backwards over them.

    • Chocolate Diamonds

      Although I appreciate the genius in turning brown diamonds into “chocolate diamonds” on a marketing level, I feel like this needs to be addressed. Diamonds are already a scam, brown diamonds are the worst of the worst and they are being falsely advertised as rare or special. Don’t fall for it.
