You could try a google voice account. All you would need is a land line or something from radioshack to give you an IP phone. Those cost about $10 a year.

And some other stuff by Bad Suns

My mother's Ex was horrible to me. It was a standard custody split. He got every other weekend. During those weekends he would insult my mother, insult me, and constantly yell at me for things I'd done. He was also always coming up with things I should "work on." It made me feel like a problem to be fixed. About a year ago I finally built up the courage to say no, and left him. I haven't talked to him since. Good fucking riddance.

Utilitarian is right. This guy was and is a designer for the fonts we use today. In the Ted talk I linked, he talks about desgning fonts being an engineering thing. It's pretty cool seeing the challenges that lead up to something we take for granted.

In my opinion, Helvetica is the best font for paper. It has energy and ink savings as well as simple characters and legibility. Garamond, however is widely regarded as the most legible font.

I literally could not imagine going home to see that home isn't there. What do you do? I've built a life for myself, started a family, and now it's all gone.

I value my anonymity. That being said, no I am not an officer.

The police are losing track of their mission. The people are the ones we need to protect. They aren't the enemy.

1. I am terribly organized and never lose anything

2. I can sync with almost anyone I meet and anticipate their motives

3. I want to take over Earth and colonize it for my people

...wait a minute

Quite frankly in our day and age, you should be proud to read books at all.

That's an order!

GenghisKhan  ·  1975 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Judy Bloom: Censorship

    Book banning satisfies their need to feel in control of their children's lives.

I was once listening to a pastor talk about watching movies with his kids. He advised parents always pre-screen movies, even G-rated ones, to be sure the children in the movie never disobey or disrespect their parents. He believed that, even if the parents are wrong, if he isolates his children from any negativity towards parents, he will remain in control.

There was a stretch of time of about 2 1/2 months where I would listen to this over and over until I couldn't hear anymore.

    [P]ast findings on...

I am curious as to why that P in particular had to be paraphrased.

I remember all of those things. I was there.
