@Theestablishment It's reassuring to know that these fancy brand names aren't substantially better than my cheap clothing. Whenever I break a pair of $10 sunglasses I wonder, should I shell out for something better? Apparently not. Also, drink your wine! Invite some friends over and open a few special bottles! LIVE IN THE NOW!
@chic noir Good luck! It's possible! I have the American coworkers to prove it.
Ugh @ the author of that godawful article selling her services as a "Relationship Coach"
@TheDoctorsCompanion Well, if only you'd learn to be less manipulative! I know, that's hard, as us women are naturally inclined to be just that.
I feel like we've all had that One Roommate who tried (and succeeded) to coast by on the others' dime. They must be the same person who don't factor in tax and tip when putting down cash for a group meal.
@Tim de Christopher@facebook So... congrats for being born in the good old days?
@halloliebchen Woo! Go Germany/Europe! You inspired me to look up Belgium's system and it's pretty okay as well. Fingers crossed that we never have to use it, but good to know it's there! I moved to France last summer but since I'm only going to be here a few years I'm still allowed to pay into Belgium's system. So I didn't have to start all over! Bless you, E.U. worker's mobility

@bowtiesarecool Yes! During her lifetime, her books were published under "Mrs Gaskell" rather than her full name or a pseudonym.
off topic but omg you guys! http://valleywag.gawker.com/handy-sued-for-being-a-hellscape-of-labor-code-violatio-1657889316
I don't think paying 10 % more would have stopped me drinking soda, it's too addictive! Although I drank diet coke mostly. I eventually stopped for non-health related reasons (but -I know I'm being obnoxious- I do feel a ton better now). I wonder if the extra income from the tax goes back into making healthier options more affordable? This other article I read said it's going to "physical education and nutrition programs"
