This is a really, really common situation for women in their 20s to find themselves in. You didn't say if you have kids, but if you don't, it shouldn't be very hard to reboot your life from here. If you do, then you'll probably need to look at… [more]

Last time I got angry people around me were weak, avoidant and scared, or worse, told me it was wrong and rude to be angry. Forget about anger. Anger is fine. It's wrong and rude to scare people. I get angry sometimes, but I don't… [more]

Semitic languages have a cool feature where certain groups of three consonants represent a topic, and changing vowel sounds transform it into different words. For example: k-t-b represents writing: ataba he wrote katabû they wrote katabat… [more]

However, I don't have any credible reason to believe that Reddit was not operating legally. God, I hope our standard for what's decent behavior in society doesn't ever become 'is it legal?'. I tell you what, you start a site where you… [more]

I hate London because I know a couple of streets where someone is pimping out children. The whole city is evil. Someone should bomb it. I kind of think they should think about cracking down on people pimping out children, though, don't you? [more]
