Broke my damn finger

I went skiing today, and on the third or fourth run I sort of fell - not really fell, just pulled up too sharply onto a large mogul thing and fell into it. And it was fine. I've definitely done that before, and it hurts your pride more than anything. Except my finger also hurt a bit too. Not terribl...

Re: I just want my bank to be dependable and not evil

Dang. I have friends who have had a lot of problems with out-of-state credit unions, I can't even imagine trying to deal with one in a different country! Unnecessary charges - and they're really all unnecessary - from banks make me so angry. There's no reason for them to charge fees for every single...

Re: Vasalgel

Those are super promising monkey trials. I would, however, really like to see a much more easily accessed method for male birth control. Both this and a vasectomy have to be done under anesthetic, so it's not like this could be helpful in the moment (like a condom is, for example). I really don't se...

Re: what temperature do you set your space?

I turn on the heater when I'm still shivering while wearing socks, two pairs of pj pants, a sweatshirt and a scarf. And if it's super cold in the morning when I need to take a shower. Other than that, I don't really do any sort of temperature control.

Re: Give California to China. Settle the debt.

That's not how treasury notes work. China: "I've bought all of these treasury notes ($1.27 trillion to be exact) to get a reliable, safe investment and the eventual return of our capital." US: "We've decided to default and give you California instead." China: "... what the ...

Re: Give California to China. Settle the debt.

I don't actually think Californians would get their wishes in that scenario. Also, how would that work? Would we physically move California? Would China build a wall to protect their new asset? What in the world would you do with the flag??? Take away a star, or would you then make Puerto Rico a sta...
