I've actually had the same thought - recommend reading The Great Influenza, will definitely shake up your day...

1st question is have you talked to her at all? Step one is to start chatting, about anything - if you're too nervous to start chatting then this is a good time to learn how to step up to a challenge - act confident & your body & mind will follow...

Yeah heard a discussion on the radio about this & started doing some reading including this Forbes article. The "science" around us all coming from one couple doesn't hold up to reason or how other species formed, the book Sapiens I strongly recommend & the theory that multiple species of humans lived at the same time, bred, & fought is mind bending!

Reminds me of SanFran proposed bill not allowing tech companies to offer free food to employees because it hurts the restaurants... governments tend to create more problems than they fix.. if taxis were so great for consumers Uber wouldn't exist!

Or.... is he wearing it out of respect for the Rangers regardless of his physical appearance? If I tour the USS North Carolina I can buy a Navy shirt in the gift shop which promotes the Navy yet I never served. Wearing the logo is something I don't mind and in many ways understand - wearing the uniform if you didn't serve is something different entirely...

Will Anything Work? Doubt it! From drugs to drunk driving to murder, solutions may minimize at best but never "work" in terms of fixing or eliminating. Societies are dangerous places since the beginning of time. Just read an article where a mass grave 1,200 years old was uncovered containing scalped heads. Have to agree with @farsighted here in that armed security is the most viable solution I can think of. Not elegant or pretty but...

The more I read about her the more she creeps me out. Read about her Steve Jobs obsession to the point of dressing like him every day with the black turtleneck and calling her fake device the "ipod of medical devices." Just based on that statement I wouldn't invest...

Thanks for this 2cute will try this starting now. One of the books on the subject related to the part of just accepting panic attacks will be part of your life, kind of the make friends with your demons approach

Honestly I'm torn- part of me likes the idea of more good jobs plus the prestige companies like Apple & Amazon bring, not to mention the offshoot factors that come with it - then - the other part of me agrees with @Ladybug & @LabRat8890 - we don't need it, don't have the resources for it, and other areas could really use it!! So now that I've typed it out I lean towards nope... plus I know that no matter what politicians say about adding lanes, improving roads, etc. it'll never happen or if it does happen it's not well thought out and leads to worse traffic either way - so there!

Recently read that Google, Apple, etc. have setup their legal corporate entities in Ireland and other nations with more favorable tax codes. This hurts states that supply all the infrastructure, police, roads, etc.

Development doesn’t start when the game goes on preorder. It is usually basically complete. The time spent between the time it goes on preorder and release is usually spent looking for bugs and fine tuning.

I choose not to be an organ donator because I want to donate my body to a university for research. There is no sticker that goes on your license for that. Does that mean I would be excluded from receiving organs when I am trying to benefit people in a different way?

Actually cable network stations like TBS could air hard core porn right in the middle of the day. They are 100% unregulated by the FCC. They self-censor in order to maintain a family-friendly reputation.

Doesn’t matter if you know them or not. These people have the ability to look up people they went to high school with and see every little detail about them. It’s sick.

Regardless of whether or not you are doing something wrong, it is weird that the government knows everything about you. Someone is reading all your text messages and emails. They can see your browser history for god’s sake!
