A similar arrest was made a few years ago (maybe it was last year, actually), where a man pranked his girlfriend about a robbery at his place of employment which prompted her to call the police. The prankster was arrested, because he created a situation in which it was reasonable for his girlfriend to call the police. » 4/01/14 8:54pm 4/01/14 8:54pm

I always thought it would be beneficial for colleges to offer free daycare to students and those who need financial assistance. The students could use it as college credit towards childhood education, development, or psychology (or simply for volunteering experience or work study) and the community gets help with… » 3/28/14 7:22pm 3/28/14 7:22pm

I have no problem with prisoners who are well behaved being allowed a work release - however, I don't think it's right that he should be allowed a work release to play on a football team. What happens to the money that he gets? Is he allowed to keep it? I'm guessing Brazilian footballers make quite a bit of money?… » 3/14/14 10:37am 3/14/14 10:37am

I don't know if it's necessarily a weight thing or a female thing, because I'm a small person, and people walk into me constantly. It's become such an issue that I try to avoid going to the grocery store except during off hours, because I'll get hit by carts, bumped into, run over, etc and it sets off my anxiety… » 3/08/14 4:57pm 3/08/14 4:57pm

There are 11 registered voters with my name, approx. 60% are Democrat, and probably states that 50% have a college degree, 20% attend church, and 42% own a gun.
I'm honestly surprised that there are 11 registered voters with my name. I guess I'm not the special snowflake I thought I was. There are at least ten more of… » 2/28/14 7:20pm 2/28/14 7:20pm

I think everyone up here is getting cabin fever from the cold weather and snow. We've all been stuck inside too long and going crazy.
Also I've never wanted to see so many Gawker articles about my state. This is like two or three in the same number of days, which is a lot when usually people forget you exist. Pretty… » 2/28/14 6:52pm 2/28/14 6:52pm

I would vote for her. Do it Kristen Gillibrand, do it.
Also, this is one of the biggest reasons why I'm loathe to leave the North East. I desperately want to because the cold is not good for my health, but I can't come up with any place warm that's not a red state (except for Southern California, which is mighty far… » 2/27/14 8:13am 2/27/14 8:13am

This is stomach turning, and yet - sadly - I'm not surprised. I wish I was surprised. I wish I lived in a culture where this treatment would be shocking and no one could believe it. Sadly, this seems run of the mill for rape victims.

Off topic, a little, but this is why I've never checked myself into an inpatient mental … » 2/26/14 9:34am 2/26/14 9:34am

My tinydog always grabs my leg whenever I go to get into the shower. I mean, he really wraps his little legs around my leg and refuses to let me get in (for only having 7lbs of pup, he's amazingly strong). I expect it's because he hates the bath so terribly that he's trying to save me from it.

This really has nothing to … » 2/21/14 3:57pm 2/21/14 3:57pm
