"Dave, I think you'll get a wide variety of opinions here, evident by the "more recent" conversations. I think these differences in opinions is largely due to how the men here consider friendship. If this were just a casual friend from…"

"Well, without knowing specifics, we can't exactly say what happened. But my reading of what happened at the bachelor party was that Dave was there as a friend, and didn't drag the party down. The thing Dave said that bugged me the most…"

"This is the most idiotic answer ever. Ignore Rick. I don't think anyone would say that you (Dave) screwed up, since you were the one being the friend and sticking around -- in fact, the only friend as you wrote. That makes you the better friend…"

What college freshmen should know

This is inspired by a post of Muir's about what he wants the kids to learn, but I wanted to make it specific to college students.  Because I'm brainstorming for a possible freshman-seminar class, and I'm interested in topics that are important to making educated citizens or at least will be stimulating -- each topic to take a week or two at most.  What do you wish you or yours had learned in college that wasn't covered in regular gen-ed or major? or just a fun topic you think would be of…See More
