Facebook Friends + Chat

I friended someone on Facebook a few months ago. Long story short, he makes every attempt possible to start up some really pointless conversation with me. (I'm a college student, so when I see that he's tried to start conversation with me while I'm in class and not on Facebook, there's a real problem.)

Besides the obvious "I'm busy", is there anything else I should tell him the next time he wants to talk?

NOTE: He's really oblivious to the fact that I was "busy" last night. So something sarcastic might go over his head.

Cancer Research

Basically, I've taken my selfie and put it on facebook and I'm deciding where to donate. Ideally I'd like to donate to one of the more ignored (but higher killer) cancers like bowel cancer.

BUT I'm unwilling to donate to a charity where I'm unsure the funds will go to good use, rather than be siphoned off into bonuses or counting earlier diagnosis as success in, say, 5-year survival rates, where they didn't actually live any longer than they may have if they'd found out later.

Preferably a UK charity as I'd like to text my donation.

Any ideas?

Has anyone given up processed foods completely?

What are your "rules"? What do you count as processed (less than five ingredients, no labels at all, ect)?

Do you still eat meat?

How do you get around the inconvenience? Do you freeze stuff?

What about eating out?

We were talking today about how some male writers can write very well-defined and believable female characters. Zola, Dickens, Hardy, and so on. Then we wondered: who are the female writers who write well-defined male characters? That's my question today.
