I tried this 12 times once and it STILL didn't accept my post.

I gave up.

What the heck is wrong with this place?

The writers of BBT have run out of ideas. Of course, BBT was a "One-Trick Pony" right out of the gate - a formulaic program with predictable characters and warmed-over events. It was funny in the first season because it was new . I have to agree. All of the above was true. But, it was sti...

In my experience, some do, some don't. Same the other way round, too. What is distant to one person may be a nice, easy space in which the relationship can grow to another. What one person appreciates as common courtesy - a prompt response to messages - may seem clingy to another. What you are look...

A good old fashioned spanking never hurts once in a while. It's better than not doing anything or constantly having a go at your kids. the problem is 1] cruz brought up his PRIVATE family functions in public in a way sure to be mortifying to his daughter should she find out, and 2] he patronizingly...

I don't have a problem saying fine or good even if I'm not feeling particularly fine or good. For those who struggle with the placation answer if you think it's lying, how about just answering the question with the same question? We know that they don't really care how you feel. Them: "How are ...

I've certainly been approaching my ASD wrong. Last thread on this forum I talked about making war on it. That's probably not the right attitude. It's too extreme and it's not achievable. Trying it hasn't really gotten me anywhere. I do refuse to embrace it as many have... even the suggestion that I...

Cruz is the only candidate I've ever given money to.

Nixon was a deplorable human being all around.

He was a teenager when he wrote Stories for Boys. A lot of teenage males go through that.

I would say he is NOT AS.

I recommend getting over it.

It's not healthy to compare yourself to other people. You'll only be unhappy. If you're upset, ask your mom why she did it.

Things aren't usually as straightforward as they may seem.

Criticism of care services after autistic woman's suicide - BBC My patience, and sympathy, is finite. If you put your faith in the government to know what's in your best interest, then you're bound to be let down.

Nope, you're not he only one who sees the contradiction. The GOP just won't go after those rich white guys, or even those poor white guys who are persuaded to vote against their best interest, as no one would vote Republican again, let alone donate to them. So all the non-white people are voting in...
