I didn’t notice this section before, so I guess I will post in here since I haven't posted much yet. In case anyone is wondering, "J. Exalto" is a pseudonym that comes from a name I found in my…Continue

"I would say it's accurate, and I would say it's a natural progression from previous cycles, catalyzed by the involvement of the extremely polarizing nature of Trump.   I've heard various arguments about how the proliferation of…"

J. Exalto replied to Braeden's discussion Death
"I generally think of my self as rational, and I've never been the least bit superstitious.  But death has always bothered me a lot, way more than it should.  And it's not a fear of dying, but it's after the death occurs that…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion The cotton ceiling and other subtleties in the group The Great Debate
"Technically true, but beside the point: the clear implication is that the racism, in this instance, is wrong.  Which it's not; dating someone you're not attracted to out of some sense of social justice or whatever doesn't seem…"

"Grad school I can definitely understand, but as long as you're taking a common major (and if you're not, I guess you'd have to assess whether or not that is worth the extra expense). It honestly never occurred to me to think about the…"

J. Exalto replied to Sir's discussion The Cost Disease in the group The Great Debate
