bibliotectress,

Sure, no problem. Zero down at 7.125% on a home that now costs $350k, but only cost $150k about 5 years ago. I’m sure that’s affordable for a family right now.

bibliotectress,

Thank you!!! I was just about to comment and ask for a reminder on how we can view paywalled articles on mobile, and then I saw your link. :)

bibliotectress,

Wait, why was there a flag at your job site that you needed to stand and salute? That doesn’t add up. Maybe we work in different Californias.

bibliotectress,

I might move there for work in a bit over a year, and I’m trying not to already be a big baby about it. Summer will be rough for me.

bibliotectress,

I grew up in Chicago! It’s the best city. I’ll probably go back some day. I’m so glad you enjoy it!

bibliotectress,

I don’t care what he personally believes. He made a statement today in support of trans Americans, so that’s a pretty big win.

bibliotectress,

Wow that’s a huge hail ball! I get excited when they’re marble-sized.

bibliotectress,

I tried to read this, but it looks like it’s paywalled.

bibliotectress,

They are, and normally I’d agree with you, but they just recently legalized abortion and that SHOCKED me. So who knows?! Mexico might do anything!

bibliotectress,

Yeah, why have red flag laws? Ensuring psycho neighbors can still have guns regardless of what they’ve done and who they are is a great idea. Lol

Why do they still dye the rivers green for St. Patricks Day? It's not a good look for downtown Chicago. (kbin.run)

I just think the novelty of these type of displays was up in the 90s, It's time for an upgrayedd. I propose leprechauns flying up and down the river wearing water jet packs, shooting people with their Chicago-style hot dog cannons would be more with the times. What's your idea?

bibliotectress,

This is really making me miss home. Maybe I’ll move back in a few years.

bibliotectress,

It’s not like I thought Boeing were one of the “good guys,” but this is all blowing my mind.

bibliotectress,

How do you get into that line of work??? Not because I want to, just morbid curiosity. I’m too squeamish.

bibliotectress,

That was super fascinating! Thank you so much for taking the time to explain!

bibliotectress,

Thank you for the detailed explanation! I remember seeing it on reddit, but never knew why.

bibliotectress,

My daughter said Fourth Wing and Iron Flame were pretty frustrating with the betrayal/misunderstanding thing lasting like 500 pages. Do you feel like it was worth the read?

bibliotectress,

That’s the first scifi book I had read in years, and it reminded me how much I LOVE scifi. I sincerely hope you enjoy it!

bibliotectress,

I’m currently reading book 2 of the Shatter Me series. It’s pretty good so far! The books are easy to read, and dystopian books appeal to me. I still don’t really know what’s going on, but I’m clearer now than I was in the first book, so that’s something!

bibliotectress,

Hmm. I’ve worked in a high school for the past couple of years, and I feel like my tolerance for melodrama in books is lower than it used to be since I hear melodramatic stories in real life almost every day. I think I’ll pass on this one until more books come out to see if it’s worth it.

Thanks for your response!!!

bibliotectress,

I’d kinda favor 401(k)s or something more like that

I’d rather not have to rely on market gambling to survive in my old age. Many people probably agreed with you until about 2008, when a LOT of retirees lost most of their retirement money during the recession and a lot of really old people went back to work. It was pretty bad, and I’ll never forget it.

Not that it matters. I can barely afford to live week to week now, let alone save money for retirement. I’ll probably just die, I guess. 🤷‍♀️

bibliotectress,

For a long time, Weight Watchers has said that if you just follow their points system, the weight will melt off and you won’t need supplements or anything else. When most people think of Weight Watchers, they’re probably not thinking about the weight loss drugs they now support; they’re thinking of the years of points gimmick that make you feel like you can’t lose weight unless you pay $10+/month to see if you can eat that food or not (rather than teaching anyone about calorie intake vs. output).

Weight Watchers relies on a subscription based model to “save” people from their fatness, and Oprah was the biggest WW pusher. She had tons of money and resources, was even on the board of WW, and still needed medications to manage her weight. I don’t give a fuck, but people who bought into her ads and promos probably feel a little pissed off.

bibliotectress,

Nah, I’m sure they won’t want any “handouts” right? Lol
