The NYT has an article today about Cambridge, MA testing the public’s willingness to administer safe, life-saving naloxone to unconscious people possibly suffering from an overdose. The idea is that people would see an unconscious human, call 911, and the dispatcher would give Good Samaritan the code to a nearby…
Inspired by the fantastic “Why” series, and some mistaken identities therein, I’d like to ask - which celebrities did you think were the same people? I would like to submit that only just now have I realized that Vin Diesel and The Rock are in fact two separate people.
Do any of you live in Vancouver? Because I’m moving there! Eee!!
I’ve seen this fight nearly tear apart long term relationships and best friendships. It seems to cleave us apart along class and geographic lines, but not perfectly. Let’s start a Christmas Light Fight!
Trader Joe’s Lentil and Ancient Grains soup is SO. GODDAMN. GOOD. It’s also vegan, 60% of my daily fiber, 30% of my iron, super filling, and super healthy. It’s also $3.29, which is only slightly more than most vegetable-full home made lunches.
Can we do a difficult gift help thread? It’s juuuust at that time of year where if you still have *no* ideas for someone you’re starting to get pretty nervous. So, post your difficult person and lets see if the hive mind can help! (Also general OT.)
A friend of mine just offered to pay trans* people’s paperwork processing fees to help them get everything in order before January. A bunch of us are now making that same offer and trying to get the word out.
As in, fun activities! What are your favorites?
Two of my housemates have been sick. Now I am sick with the same cold. And I’ve heard it spread through the office in the past - at least two more people have started sniffling.
It’s October, and you know what that means - Halloween planning time! Anyone have fun ideas? Anyone need ideas or have a general sense of what category they want but have no clue what to choose specifically? Makeup advise needed?
On behalf of my BFF, who’s at the end of her rope and thinks there’s nowhere to turn (warning for frank period talk):
Spring is full of hope, summer feels carefree, winter brings you a cup of tea. Fall? Fall is that friend you had your sophomore year of college who suddenly makes you feel cooler and more sophisticated than you ever thought you could be while also somehow still feeling exactly like yourself.
I’m in a rose-tinted mood, so! soliciting stories!
And it’s the first time I’ll be traveling alone! Flights there were cheaper than to Europe! My hotel is so mini and affordable! I AM SO EXCITED AAAAARRRGH
Does anyone know if a blocked number can still reach you if they list themselves as “no caller ID”? I’ve been getting daily, sometimes twice or thrice daily calls from a no caller ID number for a little over a week now. I’ve only answered two of them because I’ve been working or had my phone on silent. I expected a…
I have some questions about the rhetoric we’re using, PLEASE know that I’m trying to be sensitive and a good ally and that’s why I’m asking these questions here, on an anonymous forum, instead of the wider internet. You do not have to engage me. My grief can in no way be as deep as yours, but it is there and it is…
Did anyone else catch the DR show today? They were scheduled to talk about the Stanford rape case, and I was actually excited as Diane always handles these emotional topics with grace.
Since I’m self/friend-promoting, feel free to promote your own stuff in this thread too!
I haven’t seen much coverage addressing the issue of the woman in the film. She too was filmed without her consent, is not a public figure, and that video has been published on the internet. That must be incredibly traumatizing and invasive. Am I missing where this is addressed in the lawsuit?
But if you look at the coverage, single men don’t exist?
