If I were you, I'd stick with it. If a truly "academic" experience is what you consider "a college experience you love", you probably aren't going to find that at the undergrad level unless you go to a super top flight school that costs $60K a year and is populated with 95% fiercely competitive douc...

I see no reason why we shouldn't. I am on the spectrum and I own firearms. I for one don't want to lose my rights as I have served my country and have been a contributor to society. But I am sure this will stir up the debate yet again. Anything can be used as a weapon even a 4,000 lb car. Being on ...

Right handed both ways. I was a pretty good baseball player growing up and at one point I foxed with switch-hitting briefly, but it was way too awkward. I could hit balls down the tube left handed, but I couldn't fight off or spray pitches that were high or on the outside corner. Normal/right handed...

I'm wild confused in all of this as to what exactly the operational definition of "nice" is. I mean I'm pretty sure such a thing doesn't exist, but I'm lost on what the general perception of it is. I'm "nice" to people in that I'm kind and respectful on a moment-to-moment basis, but I'm far from afr...

A Wilhelm Scream.

Also, if you qualify it as "punk", I'll throw Jawbreaker in there. I could see arguments either way, but if Green Day and Offspring represent punk, then Jawbreaker qualifies by a wide margin.

Marijuana is a much better substance to use for social situations than alcohol. I'd agree, if it wasn't for that whole legality thing. Oh god, not for me :lol: I mean it's great for social situations that hinge on smoking weed in the first place, but to just get high and feel better at some sort of...

Competition is fine if it's about having fun. I have a problem with people who seem to think life itself is a competition. No doubt. It's the worst when it's done in a professional context and people try to ruin other peoples' livelihoods, but at the same time, given the circumstances it's a little...

My worst job ever was door to door meat salesman. They paid nothing unless we made a sale, their prices were horrible, their product only medium quality by supermarket standards, and we had to pay all expenses. If we went out and spent $20 in gas and made no money then we were out $20 for the day. ...

Can't remember the last time I actually smoked on 4/20. It's wild to me at this point that I used to "care" about that, but I definitely did, and at this point I fully support it. I incidentally got blazed on the 19th though for the first time in a while, I was back at my old house cleaning up and g...

Yes!

This is possibly my #1 of all times. Guns Germs and Steel is good, but imo Collapse is better without question.

Does anybody else feel like dont have a lot of brain juice left after work. Oh, most definitely.

Asker pays. This. Expecting to go halfs sounds really cheap/stingy. I wouldn't want to date anyone who was concerned with getting the woman to pay her half as if the date is just a business deal. If there's any question whatsoever, even 1%, YOU pay. If a split is mentioned unsolicited by the other ...

Just enthusiastically reiterate at every relevant opportunity that you are down for whatever they throw at you. And if they ask you something that catches you off-guard, ask them to clarify and use that time to gather your thoughts. If you do that and have half of a qualification you'll get offers, ...

I started smoking socially when I was 15 but have been doing it full-on since I was 18. Basically dead-on 3/4 of a pack a day since then aside from extreme drinking circumstances (more) and associated hangovers (less/none). I have a heavy duty oral fixation, and for that reason I "love" smoking desp...

"Adoption romanticists"?

Does such a thing really exist? :lol:

I'd love to see the "research" that suggests adopted kids are more likely to commit suicide.

TO BE CLEAR, PLEASE POST LINKS RIGHT HERE TO RESEARCH SUGGESTING THIS. I'M SURE THEY ARE ALL VERY SCIENTIFIC.
