On It Depends on What the Definition of "Unlimited" Is

I was wondering if someone was going to do something about this. My friend who was grandfathered in under unlimited data always said once she reached 2 gigs, they slowed down her data rates. And I always thought that was super shady of ATT. I wish I could change my plan but I don't live near a metropolitan area and I travel for work so sometimes I'm in the middle of nowhere Virginia or Kentucky. So I need reliable service.

On Did Your Parents Lie About Your Age To Get Lower Ticket Prices, And Did That Scar You For Life?

I do this now. My college ID doesn't have an expiration date on it. So I always use it to get a student discount.

On Everything You Need to Know About Diapers, Part 2

I feel like this and other things around the modern culture of motherhood (breastfeeding, making your own baby food, etc) is another manifestation of the "feminine mystique". Women who had other outlets (careers, volunteer work, etc) for their creativity and energy are now focusing that onto their babies and homes. Like does dealing with diapers have to be so all consuming. Screw these Kelly's Closet people for shaming women who chose to not endure this nonsense. It's okay to still be a whole person after you have children it doesn't need to consume every aspect of your life.

On How Going Cash-Only Helped Me Curb My Spending

I use mostly cash. Every Friday (payday) I go to the bank and take out $189 and that's all the money I have for week. It has definitely helped me curb my spending because I could justify little purchases with a debit card. But now when I'm in a store I really think if I need something extra cause that purchase is taking away from something else: gas, groceries, etc

On "Is There Anything More Ironic Than Coming to Live in Des Moines"

@thegirlieshow AMEN, as great as Des Moines sounds I really don't want to be the black token person in any crowd, thanks but not thanks. I'll just stick with city 25 (Atlanta) as my place of residence.

On I Don't Get Las Vegas

I think the appeal of Vegas is really more about the cultural aspect of it. Which is that Vegas is this hyped up place where you can get "crazy and wild". Even though as you say it's really just controlled and meant to take as much money from you as you'll let it. I think the same thing happens with NYC and that's what drives so many creative types to come here every year. It's not the there's a wealth of opportunity here it's just that our culture has said if you want to be a real writer/artist/poet/etc you must come to NYC.
