but they do sauna all the time in Finland, Sweden all those countries, right>>? hehe

Ok, say no and find a different job?

Love how people don't understand a person in the position to hire is forcing women into uncomfortable situations if they need a job.

Can they say no? Sure, but the point is that they either do it or lose out on a job. That's not how it should be and is a legal suit in many countries for doing it to begin with.

Also, the logic that he can't see them writing about sauna's without experiencing it nude and with him? Yeah, that's how it works. Only murderers write about murder.

A Late Look: Paper Mario

VGChartz's Mark Nielsen: "Welcome to A Late Look, a series of article where I take a belated look at games from yesteryear that I missed out on the first time around. Not quite review and not quite rant, it’s more a casual assessment of what I – the gamer of the future – consider to be each game’s strengths and weaknesses in retrospect.

Just last month Nintendo released a remake of the cult-classic Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, so what better time could there possibly be to take a look not at that game, and not at its original, but at the Nintendo 64 game from 2000? None is what I say! This very first release in the Paper Mario series will also be my first entry point. So, let’s get to it."
