    Just call me Harry. (Everything Harry & Meghan)

    Not that it’s right to think about it, but mixed people can have a baby that doesn’t resemble their own skin color. I know, I’m Mexican. All different shades and features in almost everyone’s family I grew up with. I would assume since she’s half black the likelihood her child would be a darker...

    Texas Suffering Arctic Freeze Producing Blackouts

    Griddy will also cut your power off within one day of non-payment, and I think they waived that during this storm. I also wonder if the reason some people can’t switch providers is due to bad credit. They still require deposits/co-signers for most of the utilities.

    Texas Suffering Arctic Freeze Producing Blackouts

    I have Griddy and the kWh price of electricity has been around -0.6 cents (yes negative) to 2.5 cents since Friday. I signed up last March and have saved hundreds of dollars. I researched it and knew the risks, but I was willing to play the long game. Fortunately, I am in a position where I...

    First U.S. Presidential Debate, Sept. 29, 2020

    I’m in Texas and all my conservative friends are saying it was one-sided and complaining about Chris Wallace.

    2020 Non-Presidential U.S. Elections

    From what I’ve read, voter turnout in Texas was pretty good. So some hope?

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    This might not be an option for everyone, but if you’re having issues finding things like paper towels expand your search beyond the stores you normally go to if possible. I’m in Houston and for some things, like eggs, I go higher end and go to agrocery store like Sprouts. Friends were posting...

    News and Experiences #Thread1

    I read a CNN article earlier before the travel ban was announced that Europe having the Schengen area is an issue, since there are no border controls. That’s maybe why UK is excluded. ETA NY Times article...

    News and Experiences #Thread1

    Would a ******** outbreak affect a city water supply? I’d rather not buy toilet paper and keep using my bidet :)

    Jerks and Expensive Cars?

    I (Lexus and BMW owner) feel like most of the time pedestrians have it coming to them. If I weren’t so courteous I’d have taken many of them out (in Texas they just walk into the street).........thankfully my fancy car sets off all sorts of alarms to alert me to obstacles nearby!

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread you live in Texas? I live in Houston and don’t feel this way at all about people having guns. If i had felt there was suspicious activity, I would have contacted neighbor if I had their info first. If i didn’t, I’d have contacted the police. I would have never approached the...

    The Race for the 2020 POTUS elections

    Moving to Texas as a young Mexican kid, it seemed like a majority of my very white friends claimed to be part Native American. I always wondered why the population didn’t look more “Mexican” then. Likewise, I’ve met so many people I’d consider Mexican-American, who are clearly mestizo like the...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    What additional powers does Congress have if they proceed with impeachment? And can Trump just refuse to comply like he’s doing now with the subpoenas?

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    I am not sure of all the details of this congressional trip, but that was well played by Trump (not gonna talk about comportment at this point anymore). Nancy should have thought ahead and canceled this trip.

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    I saw someone on CNN couple days ago arguing that they could still tax remittances to get Mexico to pay for the wall. That wouldn’t work. We already use other non-traditional ways (which are a lot cheaper and more favorable conversion rates than using something like Western Union) to get money...
