According to a criminal complaint in the U.S., two women said they were among about 10 girls and young women who were chosen to live apart from their families in a camp that Barnard set up near Finlayson, Minnesota, about 90 miles north of Minneapolis. » 3/01/15 12:25pm Today 12:25pm

My first instinct was to get the test, then I realized what a shitty fucking idea that was. There's no reason for a monogamous couple to get a paternity test. And the results won't solve the problem of racist parents, in fact, giving in to them and getting the test implies they have some stake in this couple's… » 3/01/15 11:10am Today 11:10am

I'm sorry about that happened. It sucks. Rescues are wonderful and awful. I wanted a medium to large dog that could go on long walks with me, and all of people I talked to emphasized over and over how much exercise that kind of dog needs, lots and lots of exercise, finally I out of frustration I asked one woman, Well,… » 3/01/15 9:49am Today 9:49am

I taught Business Communications for a couple of semesters. Here is a couple of things I discovered: There are two kinds of presenters, people who are glib and can just get up and talk and aren't anxious at all, and people who are paralyzed with fear. The people who are glib will get up and talk and mash together… » 2/28/15 11:09am Yesterday 11:09am

I remember reading a news story a couple of years ago where a man pointed to the snow and said see, it's cold, so there can't be global warming, and feeling so so sad. It's one thing to be ignorant; that's easily cured by doing some research! asking questions! being curious! It's another thing to lack the capacity for… » 2/26/15 5:32pm Thursday 5:32pm

I read this a couple of days ago from a link on We Hunted the Mammoth and now that I read this story again about the man bragging about traumatizing his daughter, I'm leaning towards doubting it actually happened. The thing i didn't know until someone pointed it out to me, a man, I believe, is that these MRAs are… » 2/26/15 5:22pm Thursday 5:22pm

Have you thought about crating them? dog like crates, because they feel as if it's their den. My dog was crate trained, then I moved into a very small apartment so I put my bed on risers and he treated the area underneath as his den. » 2/25/15 7:17pm Wednesday 7:17pm

I think they also do that thing where they say they were never happy, it was always a mistake etc. But I think it's major bullshit. Just absolute bullshit. I think it's something they convince themselves of for some stupid reason. » 2/25/15 6:38pm Wednesday 6:38pm

I don't think so. Because that would be part of the story, because it puts her in a better light. I think we need to look at the details the husband gives about him doing work for pay or being given $20. The only reason to give a drug dealer money is for drugs. So either she was buying, or she was using him to sell… » 2/24/15 12:27pm Tuesday 12:27pm

Going back to school later in life is awesome. You are better prepared to do the work and meet deadlines and to ask questions to clarify, you have much more experience and knowledge so your associative powers will really serve you when you need to understand concepts and file away new information. It's just so much… » 2/19/15 5:53pm 2/19/15 5:53pm

Wow. This is really illustrative of the double standard applied to movies/art and a lack of awareness of how personal biases and prejudices inform opinions. A movie about or by a marginalized group has to be both superb and provide a personal (possibly patronizing) connection to its audience, the movie that sheds a… » 2/19/15 7:47am 2/19/15 7:47am
