LW1: Gay. Gay, gay, gay. He is 21. Low testosterone is usually not a problem at this age.

LW2: Be happy that Layla does not have 5 kids by 4 different babydaddies.

LW3: She pays.

LW4: You just jinxed yourself.

Wrong approach. Report it as soon as possible. It won't count against you if the other insurance pays but your company could deny the claim altogether if you report it to them late. Trust me on this one.
If you say so. I was of the mindset that even reporting it could be ammo to raise your rates.

1. "I haven't changed much?" Translation: you got fat or clingy or both.

2. It's painful for you? Get over yourself.

3. Your ex is an idiot, and you're a wuss for having to write this letter.

4. I really hope someone pees in your Cheerios.

Hey, it was just one possibilities. Don't like that one? Try one of the other 2.

1. He's gay.

2. OMFG just say "she's fine." When meeting people who I don't plan to interact with further, and who don't really need to know the intimate details of my life, and the "do you have kids" question happens I say "yes, a son" if they ask his age, I say "25" if they ask how he is, I say "fine, thanks" and leave it at that. If I can do that, you can say "fine thanks" and move on to other things.

3. No, don't pay.

4. Go away.

I'm not jumping on the gay bandwagon. Even if he WAS gay, wouldn't he have had gay sex by now? Some people are simply a-sexual. They have no interest or desire.

What's with you today? You're starting early with this crap.

(sigh)

I'll bite. What law bans prayer? I believe you can pray whever you want unless you're talking about organized prayer in a public school/place.

It's not usually a problem, I agree. Since it usually isn't a problem, no one probably tested it so I'd have it tested. Easy-peasy to have that done.

Here's a quip I found on the wonderful 'net so does happens:

"I'm a 23 year old male (6'0", 165#), with low testosterone. At the time of my last blood test, my test levels were 240 ng/dl. This would be understandable if I were a 65 or 70 year old, but somewhat alarming for a 20-something. A year ago, I was at 330 ng/dl, not great but not abnormally low either. My doctor wrote a prescription for androderm, which I have been reluctantly using for about 6 weeks. The results of my latest blood test should be in soon, I'm expecting T levels that are more normal, and possibly slightly elevated E2 levels."

You do realize the restriction on prayer in schools goes back to the '60's, right? And you do realize that it is based on the Constitution (which you so proudly trot out when it suits your purpose), right? And you do realize that there is absolutely nothing stopping little Susie or Johnny from praying to themselves and that the restriction essentially provides that prayer shall not be led by the school, right? If you want a religion-based education for your child, there are private schools that cater to that need.

So what is the problem? If a kid want to pray, they can pray. That prayer just won't be led by the school officials and include every other child, including those who are entitled to and have their own beliefs. To the extent that any particular school provides differently, they have done so on their own and that is a reflection of the community wishes and standards.

And not reporting it is amno to cancel your policy if it turns up in your records because another insurance company paid out on it. Not reporting house damage can be a reason used to cancel homeowner's insurance policies.

And also, once one insurance company is involved, the likelihood is that your insurance company is going to get involved--even if the other insurance company tracks yours down without your involvement (then yours gets pissed at you).

My husband cut his finger on a friend's trailer which was parked in our driveway and went to urgent care to have it stitched. Months later that turned into a cluster* between our medical, our homeowners, and her car insurance. The only company we directly contacted was our medical.

Number one, the separation of church and state is not in place to prevent students from praying. That's an over-zealous interpretation from the left. Number two, I never advocated the principal should be allowed to lead the entire school in prayer during the morning announcements. That is YOU'RE over-zealous interpretation. Schools won't even allow a student prayer group on school grounds. Now if you can show me those exact words in the constitution, then you'll be able to tell me I'm "picking and choosing" constitutional laws.

Exactly -- which means there is no ban on prayer.

When people bring up not being able to have organized prayer in school, let's say before little Johnny starts his day -- how would they feel if it was this they were teaching the kids: http://islam.about.com/od/prayer/ht/pray.htm
