On Is 75 Enough?

@Derbel McDillet That said, I think picking an arbitrary age out of a hat is super dumb (can you tell I wrote my initial response before actually reading the article? Also dumb).

On Is 75 Enough?

@ECW I think that's a totally valid point, and something that gets brought up a lot in "right to die" discussions. While this guys is pretty much a tool, I think the lifespan vs. healthspan discussion is still worth having. When I was working on my MSW, I was also completing a grad certificate in gerontology, so I was working with older adults quite a bit, including in a hospice setting. We saw so many cases of family members (understandably) wanting to extend life beyond the wishes of the patient. I think there is value in discussing what you personally would be willing to go through to live another day. Man, writing about this is making me miss hospice!

@annecara The only friend of mine who read it as a direct result of my suggestion (demand) came up to me after reading Bilquis' first appearance with an "Um?" but totally loved it by the end.

@beet hummus That's how I view money I get back after returning a purchase. That money was gone! This is entirely new, free money!

No estimate, just wanted to say that American Gods is my favorite book and I am forever trying to get my friends and family to read it, to the point that they then will not read it because they're all contrary jerks. Just kidding. Kind of.

@kentuckienne I like watching the games from home or at a friend's house (mostly for tailgate food, TBH). We've been to one game in the past 10 years and both agreed that a couch with a beer and queso is the way to go.

@PicNic Oh man, I really want that Yaletown dress pattern. Between the sale announcements and this, I think the weekend estimates may make me want to spend more money.
