    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou Actually, the ONLY reason I brought my egg-buying practicing into the conversation is because someone else asked me if I'm a vegan, and question my own, personal attitude towards animal-based food. I never said, and nor do I think...

    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou Good news: I'm not talking about random eggs from a supermarket that are labeled as "free-range." I'm talking about small farms whose owners I know personally, and whose chickens I have personally seen roaming about. No big room. No...

    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou KSinger -- I never said that a person owning a gun is more dangerous or more likely to hurt me. It's the willingness/intent/desire to kill another being that I find objectionable on a moral level. I'm not scared of gun-owners hurting...

    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou Yeah, I was joking about the wolves. It's not that far a leap to realize that predators in the suburbs would eat people and pets, too. :rolleyes: But I still think it's creepy when people enjoy killing animals. And KSinger -- I'm...

    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou Ah, well. Perhaps we should reintroduce wolves and natural predators into the places that suffer from deer overpopulation. Or, sterilize some deer so there are fewer of them to hunt...

    Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. South?

    Re: Who Can Explain the Attitude Toward Dogs in the U.S. Sou Isn't all hunting a form of animal abuse? Forget the dogs... what about the poor deer? :errrr:

    mom doesnt want me to marry FI...

    One other solution might be to stop telling your mother what your fiance says / does that you think she'll likely disapprove of. Is there a reason you're willing to share all this information with your mom, especially if, as you say, she tends to be dramatic? It's your relationship. It doesn't...

    Men's clothes: where do you shop when you have a bubble butt

    Re: Men's clothes: where do you shop when you have a bubble Hi, Circe. My husband has the opposite problem (no butt), and hence, has very few clothes. In a past life when he worked 23-hour days and couldn't afford to take an hour to go buy a suit, but still needed to dress well, he went to...

    The reason we can't have honest dialogue about education

    KSinger, this is not legal advice, but you should attribute your long block quote to the author who actually wrote it, instead of citing "this person." And you might consider asking permission to re-post "this person's" intellectual property. As for the content: yes, poverty is a huge problem...

    Hey Chicago people, when's that snow storm supposed to hit?

    Re: Hey Chicago people, when's that snow storm supposed to h I was wondering when we'd had our falling out, and then I realized you were talking about BigT Tequila -- not me. But let's make up and be friends anyway? :bigsmile:

    What do you think of this year's Oscar nominations?

    I didn't like Black Swan either, but maybe I just didn't "get" it. I actually thought Natalie Portman was good in the role (her character was uptight and nuts, so constipated and psycho worked!), I just thought the movie was boring. Everyone else in the theater was laughing pretty much...

    EMERGENCY POLL -- see below!

    At first I thought you were at a gourmet grocery store or a restaurant called "Loggerheads," and then I realized that I'm just an idiot. I chose marinara, because I'm intolerant of creamy pasta sauces (not lactose intolerant, just socially intolerant). But a quick search of the interwebs seems...

    Do straight guys watch gay porn?

    You're right. IF he were having an affair, maybe I'd suggest she talk to her father. But we don't know that he is. His private life should be his own. And he should adjust his privacy settings better.

    Do straight guys watch gay porn?

    Maybe your parents watch gay porn together? Or someone else is using your dad's computer? Or it's a virus? Or, he's watching gay porn by himself. Either way, I'd stay out of it. I know it's hard to think about, but it's really not any of your business. I'm sorry. I would give you the same...

    Oh dear...

    I wouldn't tell her. If she's willing to eat meat in the home of someone who does not keep kosher, she is taking that risk. (I have many friends who keep strict kosher and would not eat most things, much less meat, in a restaurant or home that was not strictly kosher -- with a kosher kitchen...

    Breastfeeding- how long is too long?

    I don't know about a 2 - 3 year old, but I find breastfeeding a 6 year old to be distasteful, frankly. I used to teach 6-year-olds who definitely regarded women's breasts in a sexual manner, and I would not want to breastfeed a child who was old enough to associate breasts with sex. I don't...

    Anxiety. What is normal?

    That's interesting to me, LF, because while I wasn't at the WTC, I was living in Brooklyn on 9/11 and my anxiety (already quite high) was much worse after that day. For at least a year afterward, every single time a plane flew overhead my heart would start pounding and my breathing would become...

    To what degree do you think PSers enable?

    I think there's a bit of "enabling," if you can call it that. Although, to be honest, I think of enabling as being something only very close friends and family can do. I think it's weird when someone has posted about their horrible experiences with a husband/boyfriend/whatever, only to turn...

    Just de-lurking to say... HH, I'm so sorry about you husband losing his job and all your financial difficulties -- and I think it's absolutely appalling that a fully insured person must still pay thousands of dollars in hospital bills after having a baby -- but I know the 3 of you will get...

    My New DIL Thinks I'm a MONSTER

    I gave you some advice (back on pg. 5) which I still think is very good advice, but which you seem to have ignored -- that's cool, you can ignore what you want. (Although frankly, some acknowledgment would have been nice.) No matter; I'm starting to think that you don't really want productive...

    My New DIL Thinks I'm a MONSTER

    Hi iLander, I've experienced my own difficulties with in-laws, but I won't suggest that my relatives are like yours. I will, however, pass on the advice that worked best for me. You need to be confident in the fact that you've done what you can do and have behaved in a way that you find...
