I read the OP a few days ago and didn't comment, it was very well written and I'd agree with what's said. In my own case I shift the emphasis a bit to what John Gray illustrated in Straw Dogs, that a lot of people (maybe most to some degree) are something like voicemail or press secretaries for the...

In all these discussions, as my favorite legal podcast pointed out, the correct verbiage is "marked as classified," given that there is no way to know without further review if the document actually IS classified. Documents are declassified all the time. Hopefully few of the documents fou...

I don't have a furnace and we have the heating off at night (though if my boyfriend had his way the radiators would remain blaring on all the time). I have rhinitis. I have to keep reassuring people at work that I do not have a cold. I can tell the difference between a cold and rhinitis, but to oth...

Good distinction. I'm a fast driver on highways and clock at about 130 most of the time if I can. That's only if the lane is open. I don't speed on residential streets or tailgate or do anything dangerous. I'm referring specifically of my ex, the one I'm still good friends with. When I had my strok...

speed This one is really a question of road and traffic conditions. You shouldn't speed when there's traffic around, or in areas where line of sight is broken regularly. But you're not putting anyone at risk speeding when there's nothing around, so long as you're mindful of how much traction you've...

Like the OP most people become less progressive/more conservative as they age. Just so you're aware, that trend has not occurred with millennials. Odds are Gen Z will follow that pattern as well unless significant economic changes occur that make home ownership, children and marriage more feasible ...

So, (a) how many of them have engaged in this sort of behaviour and (b) how many denied it, refused to cooperate, etc like Donnie did? So far Pence and Biden appear to have been cooperative and like they recognize this as a serious matter, at least compared to Trump. Each case should be judged on a...

I’d be embarrassed to ride in a flashy car or have my partner drive one. I’d feel like a superficial idiot and I wouldn’t want people staring at us. I'd just remove the badges. A base-level BMW or Mercedes isn't that flashy, and without a badge telling everyone it's an M3 or a AMG or whatever, sudd...

Even you reveal what I'm getting at when you mention he 'moved up'. Being able to cite examples of drug dealers who do make decent money doesn't negate the study from that book or other studies supporting the idea that a lot of drug dealers make very little profit. That doesn't mean none of them do,...

It sounds like it's likely interaction between ASD and trauma, although not necessarily SA related.

I think it was a microaggression when someone told me "You write really well for a left-hander". But no one cares about the hard-ships of lefties, or how we were commonly abused physically and/or emotionally in the not so distant past. Go figure. At least we're generally tolerated now, at...
