Last night I was at a small gathering for my friend's musical performance. There were eight people there and two of them were strangers to me and to another fellow who was there, but they apparently…Continue
"I'm a woman with 40 minutes to kill at the end of a long work week, so I'll weigh in. It sounds like you've got your walls under control with framing movie posters. Nothing wrong with posters but framed is much classier than…"
"I agree that To Kill a Mockingbird describes some manly virtues and particularly, the character of Atticus Finch offers much to be commended and perhaps emulated. I also think Plato's Republic, and other Socratic dialogues, as well as the…"
"Thanks for that. I guess it's an interesting topic, if people keep reviving it, I don't happen to be a "regular" here so I understand if most of you have already covered the topic thoroughly. I am reading the previous comments…"
"I personally do not, but I also believe that you need to have "room in your life" before you decide to share it with another. It wouldn't be fair of me to date and then snap at a decent guy for "smothering" me because he has…"
"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "

"Perhaps a nice customized item embroidered, engraved, or stamped with your frat letters or logo? You can get some really nice custom items these days, not just cheap beer cozies or mouse pads, but for example, a Woolrich wool stadium blanket or…"
"It's just a matter of overcoming my social awkwardness - and accepting that most people will not make introductions. I have to be fair to my acquaintainces and not criticize them for ignoring 19th-century etiquette manuals. I am not…"
"That's odd because I always thought that you shouldn't say "hey" to strangers to get their attention - "hey" is slang to be used only around close friends or family, but admittedly I'm not well-versed in modern…"
"No. Wait until the relationship ends, then pursue her. It's not okay to be complicit in her infidelity, no matter how fun it may seem. You are hurting another man and that is wrong, even if the man is a total stranger. It may be that…"
"Different realities up here. If the power goes out during the summer, we're not too worried. If the power goes out during the winter, we might die. Food can just go outside and freeze solid and therefore keep. For water, we can just bring snow…"
"Milk and bread: every time it snows, I hear something along the lines of
which makes me think (but not say)
1. You were there too, so if it's stupid to be there the day before a snowstorm...
