On The Cost Of Things: Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed at 30

@ChristinaMichelle Can you check with another dentist? I'm in my 20s, still have my wisdom teeth in. Two haven't actually grown in it? They're there, just lurking under the gums, hopefully chilling out forever and not planning to erupt in the future. My dentist said as long as they continue not to cause pain, or come in straight when they do come in, it's fine. (The two that did come in got his approval as being a-ok and not needing removal!)

On A Human and Her Glass of Whisky Attempt to Buy Multi-city Plane Tickets

@HelloTheFuture I think a bus goes to BWI from the Greenbelt metro station. But I don't know what the timing is, I've never taken it.

On Alumni Giving Season

@Elyse I got a call this week asking for $250! I graduated a year and a half ago. Definitely not a good strategy.

On Alumni Giving Season

@szajic Well, I went to a large public university that keeps getting its budget slashed by the state. It has a tiny endowment. They do need donations, and since they have actually kept instate tuition from spiking, I am happy enough to support them. (It doesn't preclude me from donating to other organizations, btw..)

On Monday Check-in

This isn't a check in, but is Mint being funky for anyone else? For October and November, it incorrectly added up my spent money vs income (spent totals are less than they should be). And the bar charts showing spent/income having everything all on the income side. :(

On Shows, and More Stories of 24-hour Daycare

Some countries have public/state run child care right? That is free or heavily subsidized? Does anyone have experience with those systems?

On Would Taxes on Sugar Make You Eat Less of It

@moreadventurous Yup, that is correct! Most agricultural subsidies for corn are for corn breeds that can be turned into animal feed, corn syrup, or ethanol. You don't eat it. The subsidies for fruits and vegetables that humans can actually consume are much smaller -- according to that Washington Post article, not even 1% of all farming subsidies.

On On Food, Cancer, and the Illusion of Control

@ronswansonluva Some can liners have BPA, which is an endocrine disruptor. I don't know if it's been linked to cancer too.
