Matt T. replied to Pale Horse's discussion Voter Scrutiny-- What's the Hangup? in the group The Great Debate
"Carrying around with you, yes, I see that's a ludicrous and insanely irresponsible decision. "an ID that used the SS number as verification to get it" is referring to standard licences (e.g. driver's), right? What I'm…"

Matt T. replied to Pale Horse's discussion Voter Scrutiny-- What's the Hangup? in the group The Great Debate
"I see your point there.  As someone who's never dealt with S.S. aside from paying in (and not expecting to get much of anything out), the number's always been more of a general, federal ID method than a purpose-specific eligibility…"

Matt T. replied to Pale Horse's discussion Voter Scrutiny-- What's the Hangup? in the group The Great Debate
"Honest question: What is your issue with attaching Photos to SS# cards?  The numbers are attached to our lives already, and I figured using the # someone could surely find a photograph of whoever it's assigned to. I do see how carrying…"

Matt T. replied to Stevens33's discussion Extrovert dating Introvert....tips?
"True words indeed.  I've assumed introverts get more curious looks because extroverts don't stand out as "odd" in crowds, so they don't get the attention. Surely, many of history's great…"

Matt T. replied to Stevens33's discussion Extrovert dating Introvert....tips?
"Everything said so far is great advice.  Again, don't spend the date worrying about if you're making her uncomfortable, spend it being comfortable yourself and she'll see be comfortable to. One analogy I've heard about…"

Matt T. replied to Benjamin Ritter's discussion Missing out
"Nice to see another "renaissance man" out there, Ben.  I'm also the kind who wants to keep at all sorts of hobbies and still keep up with the world. The biggest assistant I've found to managing (and prioritizing) my time is…"

Matt T. replied to Mike D's discussion starting to dress dapper
"Thrift shops (especially in cities) are your best friends for cheap, good-looking stuff.  It's usually a fair amount of work to find those "diamonds in the rough", and do some research on what you're looking for and set…"

Matt T. replied to Carpe-315's discussion Education Bubble
"There is definitely a culture of "whatever the cost" for college today, and I've many friends who blissfully plunge into debt in order to get a strong degree. Not sure how universal the desire for amenities is.  I'm going…"

Art replied to Matt T.'s discussion Man as "Expendable" in the group The Great Debate
"My cursory two cents having just joined the group - a growing female presence in the military, both here and abroad, is perhaps clouding long-held ideas of male 'expendability'. I have to confess, in my estimation the jury's still out…"

"Thanks guys. My main hangups were from reviews saying that the bag fell apart after a few weeks and left stains on clothing. After my post, work told me that I'd be getting a new laptop. I may hold off to make sure that it's not too big."
