    FWIW, Most everyone I know who has chase complains about the fees associated with their accounts. I was with Wachovia and loved them, then they got bought out by Wells Fargo (whom I had switched to Wachovia from some years back) and they were terrible at first , but I will admit have gotten...

    North Korea attacks South Korea

    My bad... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXL86v8NoGk Not quite from her house, but the woman is still an idiot. Listening to her talk reminds me of some of the well thought and insightful interviews that JaMarcus Russel used to deliver to the local media out this way back when he was...

    Some vocabulary questions

    slow news day, this seems like a fun thread...here goes... 1. Relatives or relations? -Relatives, or Familia, or just The Fam (depending on my level of formality) 2. Living room, sitting room, lounge or parlour?- Living Room...I have a separate parlor, but that's the designated smoking area...

    North Korea attacks South Korea

    not quite sure...I'm guessing it has something to do with me buying into the hype??? did she or did she not say that??? and even if you throw that one out, her soundbyte librairy is full of gems that are equally as discouraging when you consider the fact that there are people who think that...

    North Korea attacks South Korea

    I have to admit this is my first time hearing about "Our North Korean Allies"...holy cow... They all fell for "Hope and Change" didnt they??? (the sad part is that I'll probably be forced to vote for that guy again if she gets the nod in 2012) There's no doubt in my mind that imbecile will...

    Target misses the mark with LGBT customer relations

    Cute...but honestly, if you MUST know, I feel that the majority of people with kids should not have had them. Yeah yeah, I'm sure you'll twist my words around on that one, but lets face facts, there's alot of messed up kids running around, and yes, many of them are the product of straight 2...

    Target misses the mark with LGBT customer relations

    I still have very mixed feelings when it comes to the whole issue of gay marriage...I used to be strongly opposed to it, until a very close friend of mine revealed that she was a lesbian...I found that my feelings towards her did not change at all...so I dunno, I suppose that if two people...

    Use of the term "intellectual masturbation"

    Right??? I was wondering the same thing... makes me think of somebody who gets "in touch" with their body while reading the New Yorker or something...lol... and I'm certainly not trying to start anything...but doesnt it seem like that's the kind of pseudo intellectual, condescending (sp?)...

    weird habbit that I need some help with...

    Lately for whatever reason, I've been into wearing my dress shoes kind of dull...well, maybe "dull" is the wrong choice of words...more like with a matte finish, that is to say, still a rich deep black or brown, free of scuff marks, but with as little shine as possible...I guess after years of...
