That was where I got confused too. I'm guessing they imagine it going down something like this: First, the clinic staff will do everything in their power to convince a woman not to got through with the abortion (without mentioning the reversible part). But, if the sinful slut still wants to go through with it after… » 3/26/15 5:27pm Yesterday 5:27pm

I think "respects the source material" is only bad if it is combined with one of those other phrases that contradict it, i.e. "We're taking it in a totally different direction, while still respecting the source material." Then you know they're trying to please everyone and failing. » 3/26/15 1:28pm Yesterday 1:28pm

I know a lot of vegetarians, and none of them claim that their diet is in any way hearkening back to the diet of early humans. That would indeed be pretty laughable, since so much of their protein comes from processed soy and other products that have only recently become widespread among populations of European… » 3/25/15 8:15am Wednesday 8:15am

Did you pay for it yourself? I feel like that usually makes people remember exact costs much better than if someone else picked up the tab. For example, my concept of the total cost of my undergraduate degree is a little vague, even though I definitely looked at the bills before I forwarded them to my parents;… » 3/20/15 5:29pm 3/20/15 5:29pm

My sister once went to return a phone to Costco after literally dropping it in a cup of tea. She did not expect a refund; she just wanted to buy a replacement. She was completely honest about how it was broken. They not only exchanged it for an identical phone at no cost - they gave her an extra $50, because the… » 3/20/15 2:13pm 3/20/15 2:13pm

Yeah, I always wish people would have focused more with his actual problematic stances and beliefs, rather than harping on the "binders full of women" comment. It really was just a bit of awkward phrasing, not a true sign of misogyny, and I felt like the whole hoopla over it rather missed the mark. » 3/19/15 5:34pm 3/19/15 5:34pm

And the thing is, the extreme cold and heavy snowfall in the Northest U.S. are part of Climate Change too. That's why we're moving away from calling it "global warming," because it's more complicated than everyplace just getting warmer. But the short-sighted people who want to continue to deny it just don't care. » 3/18/15 11:43am 3/18/15 11:43am

If you're curious why this is notable to some people, Eminem's early music frequently mentioned Hailie as a baby/toddler. Most famously in the song '97 Bonnie and Clyde, which is a violent fantasy about murdering her mother and taking her on the run. » 3/18/15 1:19pm 3/18/15 1:19pm

I was kind of thinking that too. Isn't it now recommended that you should always keep LinkedIn up to date, even if you are not currently looking for a new job? It just makes sense to add in things as they happen, rather than scrambling to remember what you've been doing when you're desperate for a job. Also, I find… » 3/18/15 9:50am 3/18/15 9:50am

Excellent choice. There's a reason why one of the worst things you can do in a job interview is badmouth your previous employers. It works the same for relationships. If someone can never seem to have a civil connection with anyone and always unilaterally blames the other party, they are probably the problem. Even… » 3/17/15 12:36pm 3/17/15 12:36pm
