    Good luck with HR - they're a hairy breed of animal. No matter how the unemployment occurs or whether you are deemed eligible to collect from the Unemployment Insurance you've been paying into with...

    There are very, very few tall actors. Just googling "tall actor" is a giggle, there are so many liars here:

    Yes, I know that Vick is no longer with the Eagles. The fact remains, that team got him back into the NFL by saying "Yes, we will take him if you guys at the NFL head office allow him back into the...

    The best part of the video is when she interacts with you - she seems sweet and friendly. The rest of it - a big hound chewing a boot in a messy, somewhat bare room which is somewhat ambiguous (not...

    Ah, perhaps I wasn't clear. While I did put "price list" in there, I didn't intend for that to become the big issue because that's not the problem - I don't expect a business like a contractor or...

    Altruism: the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.

    I think it's extremely unlikely that any given murder/suicide is driven by altruism. There...

    After the reinstatement - and near-deification - of Michael Vick and the revelation that Penn State was nearly as busy protecting a pedophile as it was turning out future NFL players, I can't be...

    Question for small business owners

    This is a somewhat odd question, but it has bugged me in the past and is in the process of bugging me again:lol:

    Why do so many small businesses seem to avoid having any brochures, printed price...

    OP, love the description of your dog's diet. You're really doing it all and it it so nice to hear that. No real suggestions - I was going to mention yogurt and then you beat me to it :) Only ideas...

    A city person used the phrase "work livestock"? I guess they picked it up and thought it sounded very knowledgeable. Oops. I can't imagine how frustrated the owners were - the dog probably didn't...

    A Chihuahua? They're the right size, right energy, right face, and they seem to be far easier to find in shelters/rescue than most small breeds.
  12. Yes. And they didn't die in my car.

    Yes. And they didn't die in my car.

    What's the third option? Altruism? Either she was suffering from a mental disability that impaired her normal moral function, or she was simply evil.



    It is possible for us to hold different...

    Good catch! Your dogs are beautiful, btw. I love my vet, and most of the people who work at the large practice where she is are also very nice, but I've caught a few mistakes over the years with...

    I wouldn't warn the neighbors or call to let them know I was riding, etc. I would just take a ride and the next time the dog tries anything, wait until he gets almost in range and very, very visibly...

    The understanding extended toward the mother makes me uncomfortable. I understand why people are sympathetic/compassionate toward her. But killing yourself and someone else is either the result of...

    They're oblivious that their version of friendly is utterly unwelcome to their new neighbors, but they're not being rude or odd. Be pleasant and avoid them discreetly. I'm not very friendly as a...

    Ugh, I feel for you! I started getting pollen allergies in my 20s and suffered the whole runny nose/itchy eyes/sinus congestion merry-go-round for years before a doctor suggested my #*&Q(%&$*%@...

    The poor dog (re: the injury and owner, not a slap at OP) I ran over a squirrel once and that was bad enough. I'd hate to hit a dog or cat.

    Calling AC might not work, but it's worth a try.

    I'd question the use of eye-rolling in a written format, but given quality of your actual arguments, it's probably best if you stick to grimaces and hand gestures to communicate.



    That might...

    My heat-hating dog seems to prefer bare floorboards or a cooling mat. The mat doesn't have to be frozen or wet to work. She's an older dog too, and sometimes she's panting/restless due to...

    If he's still eating and still happy to see you, he's still got a life. I think it can be legitimate to euthanize a dog who still has a life, and I wouldn't criticize anyone's choice in this...

    If the set-up of the classroom allows, how about a nearby birdfeeder? Maybe one of those that is built onto the windowsill/ledge or sticks to the glass? You'd be surprised how fast birds appear...

    My 14yo dog, a 60lb collie mix, has had arthritis in the hips and front ankles for a few years. She had a very scary, sudden flare last July; it was her second flare in 2 years. She was trying to...
