    I didn’t put that much thought into it which is the problem I think. I agree it wasn’t appropriate for Tildes. I’ll work to be more thoughtful moving forward. Thanks for always being cool Deimos

    Sleep. Exercise. Therapy/counseling.

    Start doing those three things immediately. Set a bed time. Set an alarm to wake up by a certain time. Get moving. Take a walk. A run. Do something to get your blood going. If you can't do that easily, you may be depressed. Either way, set an appointment with your school's counselor/therapists. Be open with your family about what's going on. I hope they're good people and support you. If not, find someone who does.

    Some one, some where, is living the life you want to lead. You can be that person, but you have to be that person. No one else can do that for you.

    I thought this article was hilarious in how alarmist it is. No one has every died by pot ingestion so I'm pretty sure people's pets are OK.

    EDIT: I 100% stand by my statement. Those of you criticizing without reading the article should note that the doctor is quoted as saying that it's not harmful to the animal with the only danger is a dog getting so high they inhale their own vomit.

    Those of you saying that alone is enough justification for the article might want to consider ALL of the other things that people have laying around that can harm your pets MUCH MORE than a hypothetical "I ate so much pot I threw up and I'm so stoned I can turn my head" situation. Like pain pills, or cleaning supplies, or you know, a car driving down the road, or as everyone seems to want to point out, dark chocolate.

    Please save your outrage for something worthy of it.

    I was reading up on the Princess Bride duel and apparently the person who trained the actors was the same who trained Flynn.

    I think perhaps people just didn't care for those shows as much as they do GoT. In addition, the writing in the seasons I watched was consistent (if mediocre) whereas GoT has a very noticeable dip once D&D no longer have the source material to rely on.

    Opening:

    Love, in the world of Walt Disney films, has changed. Between Tangled (2010) and Moana (2016), the ideal of heterosexual romance has been dethroned by a new ideal: family love. The happy ending of our most-watched childhood stories is no longer a kiss.

    Would you say this holds true for online-only business that offer information products? Or would that be more of an edge case where business liability wouldn't really be reasonable.

    Anyone with a business should, because expensive claims happen to people who weren't expecting them every single day.

    I tried a sample of the burger and it was very good. I'd consider ordering it over real beef in a taco or something like that.

    There was a saying around a gym I used to frequent "There are power lifters and bodybuilders, but no old power lifters."

    There are of course (old power lifters), it's just incredibly hard on the body. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my lower back when I was 19 - either the result of power lifting or a car accident, not sure which.

    Would you advise OP to get a personal umbrella policy (just in general)? I have one and it seems like a great deal for the cost. It'd give OP another layer of protection. What about a business liability policy? We had one of those for my wife's salon at one point.
