DC/DK: What would you do if mid argument you agreed with the opposing point of view? I am asking because tonight I was arguing with a religious sheikh (kind of like a priest) and there were so many people in the room (people I am trying to impress lol) but I couldn't continue because I agreed with him at some point and it was so embarrassing to just stop so I kept convincing myself otherwise and kept going until a phone call saved me haha
What country are you from?
dk/dc: what's your favorite type of workout?
A friend of mine from high school just posted (warning, this is horrible and insensitive about the Aurora shooting) this to facebook. I should unfriend them, yes?
If I applied to a university last year and got in, do I have to apply again this year or do I just kinda register for classes and show up?
-What's your favourite class you've ever took? Any kind of class; elementary, college, weekend cooking course at a rec centre nearby, etc.
I'm trying to organize a birthday party for myself for this year, and I could really use some ideas. I'm turning 29, there will be 8-12 guests, some of whom know each others, and others who don't. I'd like to 'do' something as a group, as I think that might help ease some of the awkwardness amongst people who don't know each other, but I need some more ideas to consider. We've talked about: go-karts, lazer tag, bowling, archery range, karaoke... do you have any other ideas we should keep in mind?
DK/DC - Do you have a bathrobe? What does it look like?
(Inspired by looking for my favorite eyeshadow on Amazon. I can get 1 for less than $6 or I can order a 4 pack for...$70?!)
It says I can get scholarship opportunities, resume bragging, and special job opportunities.
It is $80.
Should I sign up?
What's the last thing you spent more money on than you wanted to?
What was your last bargain purchase?
We're looking to drive to Staten Island and take the ferry. (So we can see the SoL and have a nice little boat ride.) Since that drops us off in Battery Park, we're kind of at a loss as to what to do next. Having not been to the city in like 8 years I forget if there is anything good for kids around there. Heading up town poses its own problem as the subway is out (autistic child who has anxiety about underground trains) and is it even feasible to get a minivan cab that can accommodate that many people?
Or should we scrap the ferry idea (boo!) and just take a train from the jersey shore into midtown?
Any NYC locals or those with experience that can offer some advice?
Anyway I've started to feel like every time I eat I'm gonna end up chocking and it's preventing me eating properly. I thought things were getting better because my chest pains went away after I had my exam results but now it's something else.
Oh yeah any ideas what could be causing this?
Last night I think we were both just tired, rather mellow moods.
so my question is, would TQC write a list of questions? Conversation starters? good topics for when we get quiet?
So if were both in such mellow and tired moods again I'll have a place to pool thoughts or ideas.
Watching the regular show marathon right now, tbh.

hint: she wants the house and the car
-Preferably something closer than 2.5 hours drive from Toronto
-Preferably something not terribly expensive (we're not afraid to spend money but it is only a day trip after all)
-Preferably something that is best experienced in the summatime (this could be our last day off together of the summer)
Which one was your favourite?
Have you bought any furniture off craigslist? Any good/bad stories - or advice I should watch out for?
Really, don't spoil the movie please.
But why would the prices go down? I'm pretty sure the heath care law does not implement any price controls on insurance to force it down. And if everyone is required to buy something, why should you offer a discount on it? Isn't lowering prices about persuading people who weren't going to buy otherwise? Hell, if everyone has to have something why not raise the prices even higher? It's not like they have a choice.
I guess if the insurance companies keep their rates high, any insurance company that does lower rates (or a new insurance company offering lower rates) will in theory cause everyone to flock to that company. But surely all the major insurance companies can just agree among themselves to keep rates high and buy out any company who tries to offer lower rates?
Maybe I just have an inherent distrust of capitalism in general and legalized gambling i.e. health insurance in particular...
