Who, the guy standing there with his hands in his pockets getting hit by the car, or the driver hitting him?

I fucking hate these kinds of applications. It's the kind where you have to go through each of the person specifications (there are fucking loads of them) and give examples of how you have met those in previous employment. And then having effectively exhausted most of what i can say about how my experience is relevant to the job - I am then expected to write up a personal statement.

I hate that shit, too. Treat it as a language exercise, pick three items you've already mentioned at random and phrase them differently.

Does orphan black pass the Bechdel test for having all it's main interaction between women or does it fail on the technical requirement of what exactly counts as "two women"?

Tell you what show totally passes the Bechdel test - Person of Interest. Not bad for a genre/procedural crime show.

Haven't seen it - I might give it a shot.

Currently starting with Orange is the new black, which... So far would probably not pass a reverse Batchdel test, but the main character is a mid 30s bisexual convict / aromatic soap entrepreneur / drug dealer with a thing for Jews, so all is forgiven as long as I can date her in my head... Which is also now making me wonder if that is the perspective women get when watching so much media where the main identifiable characters are male, or alternatively, when getting married to death row inmates... *head scratching*

...Also, why don't we have a head scratching emoji?

I should say it only really starts to pass the test properly by third season - at which point the core team is about a 50/50 male female split - and the women talk with each other often and not about the guys.
