On Heartbreaking Story About Homelessness in San Francisco

I wonder how this effects UCSF, SFSU and USF students. I mean, it has to be negatively but can they build more housing? Does UCSF even have housing? It's a fairly prestigious medical science oriented public institution but what happens when no one can afford to live close enough to go there?

On How Much Can Dog Walkers Make? How About $120,000/Year

@@fo Yeah I can get 1/2 day doggie daycare for 20 bucks, why would I pay 25 bucks for a walk?

On Hendo Hoverboards Is Offering a Working Hoverboard In Exchange for Backing Their Kickstarter at the $10,000 Level

@HelloTheFuture Yes! And it's killing me not to read all about it because it's infinitely more interesting than what I'm getting paid to do. But I will 100% fall into a hole and ignore all other things and E&M is not my area of expertise. If the world series is on tonight I'll read up while my husband watches. I'm 100% sure the answer will involve the right hand rule, so if you are interested in the nerd details, watch a youtube video on how it works. :)

Nicole, it's mean to say "Also, I hope that somebody who actually knows physics can explain it to the rest of us." when that sounds way more interesting than prepping for a meeting this afternoon. Although I watched the video and I want to say that maybe they should get some more coordinated to ride on the hover ramp?

@Beaks Yeah I eloped myself, if going to the courthouse in your own town and then taking off on a road trip counts as eloping. I skipped the party afterwards too. No regrets. I'd do it again in a heart beat.

On I Don't Get Las Vegas

I've been to Vegas probably 10 times through out my life. Most of my life I've lived with in a day's drive or a quick flight. Only one time was just a "let's gamble and party" get away. Other reasons are/were family reunion (you can get cheap flights there from most of the country and cheap rooms), sporting events I was participating in, or to see a concert. Oh yeah and once upon a time before I was old enough to drink or gamble I drove out for the Star Trek hotel/experience Gambling can be a lot of fun if you set a budget and stick to it - and play the more social games. Craps is my personal favorite. The pools are nice to hang out, the shows are amazing, especially if you get discount tickets. But the very best part? Is the people watching. People from all over the world get super dressed up and drunk and walk around and have hilarious conversations you can hear snippets of and it's endless entertainment at any time of the day. I love it. I could sit out on the strip all day and just watch people go by.

On A Drunk Stole My Kale. You Won't Believe What Happened Next!

I've had probably 3 or 4 car radios stolen back when I was in high school. The best was a tape deck car radio in 1997. Why bother? Twice! I've had (i assume) drunk people do expensive damage to my property. Once 7 or so years ago someone threw a half full wine bottle through the back window of my car when it was parked on the street. Luckily the cork stayed in the bottle, but glass was all over the place. Then last summer about 2 months after moving into my house some one threw a rock through the front window at 3 am. Super wtf.

On On Engagement Ultimatums

@This is my new user name Oh yeah she should leave him. But I'm partly responding to the commenters who are like OMG HOW UNROMANTIC and even Prudie's response which is he should leave her. While I understand that she's addressing the letter writer the person who should leave is the person who's unhappy with the way things are.

On On Engagement Ultimatums

@Meaghano Dude yes. The first handful of things out of my mouth when my husband was like "I think we should get married" might have been "oh god why" and "do you want to do this because you like our life and you want to keep it that way, or you think something is going to change because that's terrifying?" I think it's easier to talk about money.
