"like, if you choose to smoke your whole life and you get lung cancer? Or you have a heart attack at age 40 because you eat three Big Macs a day? That's understandably something people don't want to pay for"

no it fucking isn't. If you must make this noxious moral argument, then make it, don't toss this off like a casual disclaimer we can all agree on. We don't.

"No easy answers" is sometimes true and sometimes a fun thing people like to say to sound like they think a lot, about stuff. In fact, there is an easy answer: you qualify for health care by being ill or wounded, not by being good. The hard questions about the health care system are about supply, demand and costs; they are not about the deserving and the undeserving.

@Georgia I once hooked up with an ex in college a few months later and somehow when I woke up in the morning it looked like a small animal had been mauled. I was apologetic, but he was an ex and had dumped me so I didn't offer to do anything because it just kind of felt good to be like, I don't care. And being a college dude I think he just threw the sheets out instead of cleaning them and only had one set of sheets, so he just slept on his bare mattress from then on out.

I'm really glad we broke up now that I think about all of this.

Girl, do some public records searches to make sure his "fiancee" isn't his wife before you have the "will you leave her for me" conversation.

Also, fyi: usually "doesn't want to deal with a custody situation" is usually code for "doesn't want to pay child support."

I don't think anyone who is having an affair has ever said "my partner/husband/wife/mother of my child/father of my child is awesome and our relationship is fine; I'm just kind of a jerk" to their adultery buddy.
Because where's the drama in that?

Did we really need the Lady's "advice" there? Was there a word number y'all had to hit?

Oh, and #LW5, "if we make the effort to keep things platonic" HAHAHA. You know that is not going to happen. It's not. That is not something that will happen. Like, neither of you will even try.

Just stop talking to him!

long long ago when i was first exploring the internet, I found this sketch about typical film nazi types and it was incredible. I actually had a hard time re-finding a good link, but here you go: http://grasshopperliesheavy.blogspot.com/2004/10/so-you-see-captain-we-are-not-all.html Modern further internet tells me that this is from a British sketch comedy group Smith and Jones, and the sketch is on Youtube, but I think it's funnier written down (although that might just be because that's how I first found it...)

I, for one, thought pretty much all of this was LOL-worthy.
