Partial post from that dude I went to HS with. Sounds like a woman complaining to her friends.

"I swear I'm tired of meeting losers...I'm seriously doubting the fact that somewhere out there that someone for me exists.. I just want one woman.. One good woman which shouldn't be A crazy thing to ask for feeling frustrated."

Yeah it kind of does. I actually had a reaction to reading it...it was like eww dude, quit being so "sensitive." I mean understand (I'm sure you do) that I like guys to be sensitive, I like sharing of thoughts and feelings, all of that, it's an important part of relationships. But this sounds too girly and is a major turn off. I bet this is a big reason he can't find "one good woman."

You can never have too much storage. And if you re someone that has lots of multimedia...movies take up lots of space. Higher qulity audio takes up lots of space. High quality photos take up lots of space.

And yes. You can get it for the mac. In fact, I don't think its a separate version. I think its simply compatible with both mac and pc.

If a dude has sex with a prostitute without her consent, is that rape or shoplifting?

Share your thought and feelings with your SO, not the entire Facebook world.

Blame falls at the foot of the head coach. Bobby caught all sorts of shit for letting Jeffrey run the offense.

Costco store by me has 1 TB for $64, I think 3 TB is around $119; check their on line store.

I am going to survey my family to see if there is an extra one around before I buy something.

Not necessarily. Can unplug from one and plug into the other as needed. I have mine plugged into the desktop and shared over the home network and access it wirelessly from the lap top

That's the answer I was hoping for. does it matter if they're different OS. XP vs 7.

Tonka! Regarding using a handicapped placard and people making assumptions...must have been kismet or something.

So today while I was out doing stuff someone (at Walmart!!!) decided to question my use of my handicapped placard. I told her to mind her own business and kept walking. She told me she was calling the police. I kept walking. She's yelling at me "you have to stay here until the police come! Come back, you can't go anywhere. This is a citizen's arrest!" I stopped, but only because I started laughing.

I went in to the store and about the time I came out lo and behold, there was a police officer talking to her. She waited a whole half an hour just to harass me. So the cop asked me if it was my car/placard and I said yeah and he asked for the wallet card that matched the placard. I gave it to him along with my ID registration and insurance stuff. I am so legal it's not even funny.

You could see the expression on his face change in about a second. He went OFF on Nosey Rosie about wasting his time, taking him away from real crime, etc. She is to assume that anyone with a placard has a right to use it unless she knows that person personally and knows it's not theirs, and THEN she should report it to the DMV and not waste time of the police.

So there were people watching this right? And after he gives me my stuff back and thanks me for cooperating (as if there was a choice) he told me if I was interested in calling a lawyer there might be a civil action I could take against the dumbbitch (he didn't call her that). I wouldn't waste my time, but nice to know that popo was on my side.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
