Somewhat tired. I don't get much sleep Sunday night since I stay up late Saturday and sleep in on the weekend. Plus I matched up with a girl on tinder at like 11:30 pm she was the first match I had that actually responded to me, so I had to chat. Didn't work out though, she was 25 with 3 kids including a 6 week old.

I live at home still but work full time, I want to move out but don't make enough. I would have no safety net and would be paying over 50% of my income in rent. It can be depressing to live at home sometimes though. And it is not acceptable although it is probably more acceptable for a woman or a guy just out of college or up to mid 20's. If you live at home at least pay your way.

25 minutes to work 30 minutes home. Way way too long I hate my drive. It's 19-20 miles one way.

I drive and I hate it so much especially on the way home. I get home upset and mad at traffic.

10 an hour isn't that much. Any emergency can seriously hurt you, like car problems or medical. You don't have much room for error at all and it can be hard to build up a emergency fund.

I've always wanted to know this, why do you have the Kenyan flag under your username?

Revisit previous seasons of Update (some have been deleted, fyi), and earlier this season dating back to March 2012 for details of my love for Kenya.

Bushie, will you respond to my PM about breakfast smoothie recipes that you might enjoy?  Contrary to popular Oklahoman belief, atheists do not eat babies and I guarantee you there are no babies in my smoothie recipe.  

(but really, it a thing I've been doing for a month and I have tons more energy)


I would like to hear about your breakfast smoothie recipes.

There's no soda, so I doubt you (or Bushie) will be interested

I stopped drinking pop a month and a half ago.

16  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should state legislative districts been drawn by independent commissions? on: November 15, 2014, 07:46:33 pm
How big are state house seats in some states? In Michigan they are 77 to 92k each at this size it seems like you can't really gerrymander that much especially if there are rules like compactness and keeping cities and townships together. The state senate here is closer to around 260k and there are a lot more chances to gerrymander. Plus with state house districts that small you could actually talk to a lot of people in the district and win a district that leans the other way. Our state rep himself knocked on our door and my mom chatted for 10-12 minutes with him.

Even I'm drinking water right now, although I had 5 pops today. It's not that hard to drink water. It even tastes rather refreshing.

19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is Detroit fixable? How would you fix it? on: November 08, 2014, 02:41:41 pm
What's larger than Detroit is the issue of American ghettos. Every city has them. Detroit's boundaries just happen to be such that the anchor city is largely coextensive with the metro's ghetto.  The whole metro is still quite a viable area and much wealthier than many others. It should be clear by now that "the market" will not fix ghettos. By definition, some markets, locations, and people fail the market test.  And our weak patchwork of anti-poverty programs haven't solved underlying issues either. And I suppose if you wanted to go all totalitarian, you could force everybody out, bulldoze the whole slum, but you still have poor people who need cheap housing.  And wherever they go, by definition, becomes the new ghetto because nobody with the means is going to want to live there.  You can't have America witghout the ghetto. The low wage jobs and the people who have them are integral parts of the nation. And you can send everybody to Harvard if you want to. All that will do is give you Harvard educated slum dwellers. On the other hand you could take radical steps to address inequality, but the political will is not even close to exisiting. And so we all live with Detroit or South Memphis or West Virginia or wherever.


Yeah I know this was from 3 years ago but wow what a great post.

I haven't seem a single Rick Snyder sign in Detroit. Plus one of my black co workers wrote "remember to vote" on our white board in the break room.

I don't blame him for not wanting a low wage job these jobs are terrible and get no respect from anyone. Our society looks down on those working at mcDonalds or Walmart as stupid or lazy. If they complain about there job or lack of pay they are told to "just get a better job, as if there are plenty of other jobs or we don't need people in these jobs. And God forbid you take some food stamp money to get by, you become scum of the earth to a lot of people.

So one of my co workers smells, he has this odor with him and it even kind of stays behind when he leaves. There is a chair in the break room that he always sits in and it smells, I actually accidentally sat in it on Friday. The elevator smells after he is on it. I don't really want to say anything surely he knows it? He is a really nice person. He is very overweight like 300 plus pounds.

Suburban although my city existed way before the suburbs but has been overtaken by them. If you go west of where I live you enter the country but with some exurban subdivisions.
