I know I will be reduced to the grays, but I really want to share anyway. 2014 was the hardest year of my life. I was back home with my parents after failing the bar exam by one point on the essay section and then found out my mom had stage 4 cancer. I had no purpose in life or hope for the future. Read more
Can anyone help me find out how to get a diaphragm? I was an emotional wreck the last time I was on hormonal BC, and my best friend from law school is suing an IUD company so I know way too much about those dangers. I called my gyno’s office, but the nurses said she would have to approve it before booking me for a… Read more
I’ve been trying to diet for years and have tried everything under the sun. Paleo/low carb works best for me personally because I have PCOS and issues with sugar. However, a month ago I started taking high dosses of Iodoral, following the Iodine Protocol of Dr. Brownstein because I read that the majority of Americans… Read more
I missed Saturday’s open thread so I’m very glad this popped up. I need some boy advice/opinions on what is going on and what I should do. Sorry this is very long. I am a perpetually single person by choice/very oblivious to flirting because I have always been very focused on getting into a great college, then law… Read more
I went to law school in Lexington and am very aware that it is a college-centric town. It was difficult to find a social life outside of the bars on Limestone. However, you are in luck that October is coming up. Keeneland will be running and you absolutely should try to get your co-workers together to tailgate and… Read more
My hilariously awful funeral story is from the one for my mother’s aunt who had 7 daughters. We were not that close with them, so I could barely keep everyone straight because my mom’s 7 cousins had so many children. Anyway before my great- aunt died she was morbidly obese and bedridden for 10 years. The aunt insisted… Read more
I’m so sorry for you. My mom was supposed to pick up a puppy she had picked out weeks ago and just learned it died today. She is wrecked over that and she barely met the dog, so your loss is unimaginable to me. Stay strong and remember the good times.
I had such a crazy week. First, two weeks ago I got a facebook message from an old college guy friend super late at night saying hello. I didn’t think anything of it or respond until the next weekend when the guy’s best friend, who is also a college friend of mine, messaged me saying I really need to respond to this… Read more
Well, this article succeeded because they are all sold out on amazon right now.
I have no idea if this is true, but saw it on Twitter and wanted to share it. What's weird is that I became a gawkerite because of their story about the UVA girls who were terrorized by the VA ABC for buying water at a grocery store. My state doesn't have an ABC, and I do not know of a single justification for the… Read more
Holy shit! I knew they were cousins, but I thought they were much closer than 5th cousins once removed. My sister is not going to like knowing the Roosevelts were this distant, yet still regarded as close cousins in a marriage because she is legit married to her own 5th cousin once removed. Read more
I usually don't read Jalopnik except for any news on Tesla, but my crazy history with the PT Cruiser made me click on this article. Currently, I am still driving my own 2002 silver PT Cruiser because it was the car given to me on my 16th birthday and it still drives. It must be industry standard for them to all be… Read more
I immediately thought about Black Like Me with this shit. I graduated high school in 2006 from a rural, public school in a red state. The only thing we learned about the 1960s civil rights movement was to watch Forrest Gump and read Black Like Me. I learned how middle class white men experienced racism and how they… Read more
That's why I highly doubt the sensationalism of the abuse accounts. The first thing to go in an animal kept in unhealthy conditions is the sheen of its coat. No way in hell that little chinchilla or mink is not getting fed and kept in a box of its own filth when the end product would be devalued.
God. What is it with some people's vilification of fur? This is like my vegan supervisor telling me that I was immoral and an evil person for wearing my grandmother's vintage 1950s mink stole to a fancy party when she was wearing fucking leather boots she just bought. Why all the outrage for fur and not the leather… Read more
I know that I have already posted on this article, but OMG! The dress is for real blue and black to me now. I have no idea how this happened, although I did take a smoke break. Shit that was just a deep, vibrant blue, and just now it almost appeal pewter blue to me. Why can't these free brain tricks happen elsewhere?
