Yeah, I wasn't crazy about the ending either. Loved the insane level of detail crammed into every goddam sentence in the book. Ive never read a book where I could so easily imagine and picture what was going on. Also, the descriptions of clinical depression were better than anything I've ever read on the subject. U… » 7/09/14 8:27pm 7/09/14 8:27pm

well yeah, the hazard mitigation tactics that thebax is referring to do answer your question if you make a jump. As climate change takes us on a ride, we can MITIGATE possible future damage, but we're not going to go back, demolish, then completely rebuild all of the northeastern U.S. » 5/30/14 10:35pm 5/30/14 10:35pm

but see, the point is that the people building bridges, developing medications yada, yada, are likely not going to find themselves in debt slavery for the rest of their lives. Their training is necessary, needed and justified; they will be paid accordingly for their highly skilled work and are much more likely to be… » 5/10/14 9:14am 5/10/14 9:14am

The barack obama guy was the only one i got wrong and i thought it was a trick. The key for me was how long it took each person to begin really saying something. The questions asked you to think about these vast periods of time in your life (e.g. what was your best childhood memory). If you start talking before ten… » 3/23/14 10:05pm 3/23/14 10:05pm

OMG. it all makes sense now! The way the shoulders of a onesie are constructed with the overlapping of fabric to make moving down over little shoulders and body simpler. Ahhh!! Poor Baby Bert got doodoo-haired at least once because of my lack of knowledge. I'm telling everyone I know- thank you LC!!! » 3/15/14 9:40am 3/15/14 9:40am

I think that shmalice and many, many other people have lost sight of the fact that, time was you wanted your guests to have a great time, which almost always meant bringing a date of their choosing. Now it's like, what? You only gave me $75 in a card and a set of pots for my wedding shower and spent a grand on my… » 3/13/14 9:27pm 3/13/14 9:27pm

He might be the foinest male specimen I have ever seen. I'll second another commenter on the well-fitting clothing. I loved that they gave present day Rust such ill-fitting pants and shirt to emphasize how long he's been out of the official game. It definitely gets the point across without saying anything. » 3/11/14 7:40am 3/11/14 7:40am

Oh yeah? I didn't have a hard time losing that weird O in phone, home etc. But i am having a hell of a time dropping the super nasal, almost Australian sounding -ou diphthong. See "hay-owse" (house), "day-out" (doubt)... I mean, I understand how to correct it, but i feel like a phony putting on airs when i do. Like in… » 3/02/14 8:31pm 3/02/14 8:31pm
