Why do some women want to talk on the phone while driving their car?
Posted: 2/18/2019 9:02:42 AM
I admit I don't talk on the phone. I hate multi-tasking. If I'm focused on driving or doing something else, the sound of a call or text will make me jump out of my skin (thanks ADHD!) I put my phone on "do not disturb." No one can call or text me when I do that.
If I have to make a call I pull over. My phone is more of a camera and e-reader.

The reason why I figure most people talk on the phone is to get more done in less time. If a person has a long commute or drive somewhere, they can get a whole lot of calls made.

Broken heart over lost friend and how strange grief can be
Posted: 2/18/2019 8:39:23 AM
I'm so sorry you are going through this as well all that you went through before.
It could be the straw that broke the camel's back, or that this cat was such an innocent and sweet creature that came to such a bad end, likely by really bad dogs, owned by a really bad person. It seems like such injustice.

Reading this post makes me angry and sad on your behalf.

I'm sending good thoughts your way.

Women always wanting men quite taller than them
Posted: 2/17/2019 3:10:27 PM
I have lived with a guy that was 5'5". I'm 5'4". We used to hear a lot of jokes about hiring ourselves out to stand on top wedding cakes. He didn't like a single thing in my wardrobe when we were going to a wedding. So I wore one of his suits and dress shoes. 😂
I just feel bad for tall people when I'm flying economy.
I do prefer husky or solid men. I guess it is because the skinny ones usually tell me I need to lose weight. 🙄

Married ex from 10 years ago spills her emotions on me, how to proceed?
Posted: 8/9/2017 10:06:14 AM

I read a lot on that website. Quite interesting. Gave me answers that I hadn't known about before. (Or made a few pieces of a puzzle fall together.)

I read a lot there too. Some of the sub-Reddits are pretty eye opening.

The married ex sounds like a soul-sucking black hole of narcissistic need.
She is looking for more narcissistic supply, as current hubby and other exes probably ran out of their own supply for her.

I predict that her kids will be posting on Reddit in a few short years.

The Disposable Society
Posted: 8/8/2017 11:36:50 AM
I think Romansachduine raised a valid question.

In some ways it may seem like things are more disposable.

When it comes to technology, electronics and appliances, it costs much more to repair them than it would to buy new.
New furniture is expensive, but it is hard to get rid of used furniture, even if it is in really good shape.

One example I remember was my mother had a Lexmark printer for her computer.
It was cheaper to buy a new printer than it was to replace the ink cartridges.

As for relationships: I'm glad I "disposed" of the two I was in during my early twenties.
More than 22 years after leaving the second common law ex, I thank God I was able to do so.

Some things are best to be disposed of.

I find that if something is worth keeping (relationship or otherwise) then a person in their right mind keeps it.
I think disposing if something we no longer want has been around forever..
It just seems more obvious with technology and our ability to travel and relocate long distances in short periods of time.
Also, a person is not stigmatized as much for being divorced or never married.
I admit I'm glad for this, as a 46 year-old single female that is too lazy (and never home enough) to have cats, much less have and raise children, I prefer to live in this time in history. Any other time, I'd be ostracized or burned at the stake as a witch.

I'm glad there are cameras everywhere for these reasons.
I admit I get pissed off when some twit decides to level false rape charges.
It ruins the chance of any legitimate sexual assault victims getting taken seriously.

There are "victims" out there who refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions.
I just want to tell them: "Life sucks, get a helmet."

It is particularly good that police have cameras.

On a lighter note, some dash cam footage can be very interesting

the first lady, is likely not as stacked as the woman at the end. But she's first, the other is last, and both are on the video. it can be joked that neither lady pay for many of their drinks :) We get wrapped up in one person's opinion, b/c we want so bad the pleasure we think they'll give us. so we forget that other people have different opinions. and we overlook a ton of red flags to just focus on that pleasure. like the lab rat who keeps banging the cocaine bar instead of the food button.

The ladies are all pretty, but I never understood wearing boots (especially cowboy boots) with bare legs.
Lynard Skynard (sp?) is singing about " Simple Kind of Man" he should have showed four-wheeling through mud, tail gate parties and stock cars getting hurt in slow motion. I wouldn't this video again, it is too slow, (IMHO) but some automotive products getting beat up (insert some monster truck action) and I'd would be rewatching it.

I am still trying to think of what I'd say if a man said my breasts too small
Ha, he best be packing 12 inches, own a Lambo and a Castle and I would still tell him to fuk off. Me and my tiny titties would make him cry :)

When I was in my early 20's, I was buying a cupcake at the work canteen. One guy saw me and commented that I was going to get fat.
He had bigger tits than I did! I didn't say anything. I just shook my head.

No that I'm older and don't seem to have as much of a filter when it comes to such bullshit, I would have told him he had bigger hooters than I did.
Why? You guessed it, he was a few extra pounds.

Get counselling to find out why you put up with thus dumpster fire of a relationship.

Do you feel like you need a man in your life? I hope not. People should only be together if they enhance each other's lives.
They need to have each other's backs when the rubber hits the road.

Stay single for a good long while, find out why you allow your boundaries to be trampled.
Find out what your boundaries are. If you get involved without resolving these issues, you will end up with another abuser.

What is Wrong with you?
Posted: 3/26/2017 9:19:39 PM
I have to admit I am almost 46 and have never been married or had kids.
I totally have no maternal instinct and realized it at a young age. Nothing was wrong with the kids I babysat as a teenager. I'm just lazy as ****.
I have received a proposal or three over the years, but I knew that we weren't compatible.
I loved it when I turned 40. People question my own personal decisions a lot less. I no longer have to hear that I'll change my mind with regard to having kids.
I was not depressed when I turned 40. I was ecstatic!

Nothing wrong with us childless, unmarried spinsters or bachelors. It is what it is.

I wouldn't worry one way or the next.

My perception is that some males like female clothes because of a much wider variety in colours, textures and styles.
I just find women's clothes much more expensive and not as durable.
Other than underwear, I wear men's clothing, so why can't men do the same?

I just find dresses cumbersome and impractical, but if someone wants to wear one, go for it.

A Few extra pounds ?? Definition Please ?
Posted: 4/6/2016 11:44:45 PM
I was considered "obese" when I did my Basic Parachutist Course in 2001.
I was 165 lbs and I'm only 5'4".
According to BMI charts, I was obese.

Now at 210 lbs, I'm steering more tonnage than a U-boat captain.
However, I can mix cement by hand, scrub floors on my hands and knees for hours,
do heavy cleaning for up to 12 hours a day, help to lift appliances and such.
If something heavy needs to be moved, I'm the one that can do it.

I may not like how my photos turn out, but being physically strong makes my life easier and I can help others when they need it.
My profile is BBW "Brazen, Brawny Worker."

I can't say I'm "big" because most 12 year-olds tower over me. (And now all of my 15 nieces and nephews are taller than me..." Le sigh.

Repeal of Bill C-24
Posted: 2/25/2016 8:36:22 AM
The Liberal government plans to scrap Bill C-24 that was put in place by the Conservatives.
One point in that bill is that a convicted terrorist would be stripped of their Canadian Citizenship.
I figure if someone commits a terrorist act or plots to commit such an act (but gets stopped before) they should be stripped of their Canadian Citizenship.

What do you other fishes figure?

Posted: 02/25/2016 10:29 am EST Updated: 19 minutes ago

OTTAWA — The federal Liberals are getting started on repealing some of the previous government's sweeping — and controversial — changes to how people get or lose Canadian citizenship.

Immigration Minister John McCallum has introduced a new bill that, if passed, would remove terrorism or other crimes against the national interest as grounds for revoking citizenship from dual nationals

The legislation would also restore citizenship to anyone who has been affected by those provisions; officials said Thursday there is one person to whom that would apply, but did not identify the individual.

"Canadian citizens are equal under the law," McCallum said in a statement. "Whether they were born in Canada or were naturalized in Canada or hold dual citizenship.''

The bill also shortens the length of time someone must be physically present in Canada before qualifying for citizenship, and allows time already spent as permanent residents to count towards the residency requirement.

The Conservatives had also expanded who needs to pass language and knowledge tests before qualifying for citizenship; the Liberals are returning to the previous age requirement of 18 to 54.

"Canadian citizens are equal under the law."
But the bill also makes some new changes, including adding those serving conditional sentences as people barred from seeking citizenship.

None of the changes would take affect until the bill becomes law and coming-into-force provisions are established.

When the Conservatives introduced the new law in 2014, it led to accusations that they were creating two classes of citizens, but they argued the move was in keeping with laws in other countries.

Citizenship can still be removed from those who've obtained it via fraudulent means or misrepresentation.

Ex-immigration minister unhappy

In an email to The Canadian Press ahead of the announcement, former Conservative immigration minister Chris Alexander said the changes his government made were in keeping with Canadian values.

"Terrorism, espionage and treason are serious crimes, representing gross acts of disloyalty. They are far more serious violations than covering up minor crimes from one's past — a common form of misrepresentation," he said.

The Conservative bill was attacked as setting a dangerous precedent and even challenged, unsuccessfully, as unconstitutional.

When the bill was rolled out, there was particular concern in ethnic communities that, over time, the criteria to revoke citizenship would expand to include convictions for lesser crimes.

The current law also has a provision that requires people to declare they intend to continue residing in Canada if granted citizenship. That raised concerns among some new Canadians that they could lose their citizenship if they moved outside of Canada. The new law would repeal this provision.

Attacking the bill was a key element of the Liberal election strategy in heavily diverse ridings, and they promised to overhaul the law during the campaign.

In 2014, the latest year for which full figures were available, 262,600 people were granted Canadian citizenship.

Anger issues
Posted: 12/22/2015 10:16:21 PM
I can understand what you are saying. People may seem more carmudgeonly as one gets older.
I tend to hand-wring and stress about things less, but I find as I get older, I will say what I feel needs to be said, rather than biting my tongue.
I tend to think: "Not my circus; not my monkeys." If something isn't my business and I can't do anything about it, there is no point in getting mad.
If I get criticized for something I did on the job and the person making the judgements does not offer any kind of solution, I just blow it off as whining.
I used to try to explain or defend myself, now I just ask them how they would do the job or improve things. Then I say I've got to get back to work and mentally dismiss them.
I don't get mad, but I'm sure I may have pissed a few people off.

Maybe it is some kind of cynicism?
