    School starting

    It is because of AP testing for high schools - then middle and elementary schools are pressured to match. The dates are set in stone and the teachers have that school year to teach the material. It's a very short timeline. Schools realized they could do better with more time on the subjects...

    Ross Perot Passed Away

    When I was a teen, he came to the Asian restaurant where I worked. It was really busy and he was told he needed to wait for a table. As he was from out of state and his campaign was at the early stages we didn't know who he was and it didn't matter, we couldn't magically get a new table. He...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    I was really disappointed in ODAAT's last season and I don't think I'll search out season 4. They really did a disservice about not researching lesbian sexual health. Yes, trump removed a lot of that info, but it is still out there. One misconception is that it is very unlikely to get an STD...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    A Silent Voice on Netflix. It is an animated movie both dubbed and subtitled in English. Shoko is a deaf 6th grader merciless tormented by her classmates. The ringleader is a boy named Shoya. Later as a teen Shoya decides to befriend Shoko to make amends. It is a beautiful story and shows the...

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    Or the Aimovig daddy diaper duty commercial where the dad says he'd rather be changing a diaper than having a migraine. Like who wouldn't? It just reminds me of when dads say they are babysitting. No. You aren't babysitting. You are parenting.

    The Pointless and Petty Annoyances Thread

    There is a mattress commercial and they make the bed but one corner is not made up so you can see the name of the brand. Use a fitted mattress cover correctly!!

    Project Runway Spring 2019 Bravo

    Tessa saying how she was designing for someone who looks like her mom (is her mom curvy?)really pissed me off. Her design was so boring. What is that M2M clothing business? The garanimals for adults? It's all leggings, long skirts, tops and dresses? It is as though she just bought those pieces.

    The Percentage of American Adults Not Having Sex Has Reached a Record High

    I feel like there is less pressure to have sex. When I was a teen there were tons of movies about easy sex in HS and college. Many did not require consensual consent. I think people are still hooking up, but maybe they are readier for it? More selective about partnering up? Waiting longer...

    Project Runway 2017

    I noticed that world champs won 100,000 but the new bravo show wins 250,000. I bet Dmitry wishes he stayed home. I didn't love his stuff this season, but Michelle's stuff was totally h&m/zara. Not win worthy.

    College administration bribery scandal

    Regarding GPA - UC's don't use the high school GPA, you report your GPA based on their calculations. http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements/gpa-requirement/index.html

    Project Runway Spring 2019 Bravo

    I felt like I didn't really see much of what was going on in the workroom and the runway show, it felt like I couldn't really see the full garment walking down. The camera kind of cropped it. Personally I think two should have gone home. I think the workroom is a weird shape and people aren't...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    I watched that episode last night. I specifically liked the explanation about how people talk about athletes who don't fit a perceived idea of what that athlete should look like. At one time I might have felt the medal removal was shocking, now I only feel for the young girl who was really...

    Project Runway 2017

    Yes, his metallic alien outfit - I think he was kind of asking to be sent home. All he really needed to do was make something he would wear. And I cannot see him wearing the spacesuit. He doesn't seem to have his heart in this. Nor does he have the camera time he has had in the past. I would...
