“that's what I was getting at though, its a tool for people in or with conditions. I would probably use it daily if the weather was consistently cracking the skin on my face. But a lot of people do not need a daily dose. I live in California, and besides when the dry winds come in Fall and Winter, most people who use it daily are just trying to look their best. A lot of moms I know rub lotion all over their babies every night after their bath. I believe they are ruining their child's skin and creating a dependency on lotions, and they can barely walk. Of course I would never be so rude as to tell a mother how to treat their child, so I rant about this crap on forums :D”

“I hate using lotion but it is indeed a necessity. When we lived in the South, we rarely used lotion -- and rarely needed it. I'm 48 now and my dermatologist says my skin is that of a 25-28 year-old. Part of that is good genes but part is not being a slave to what someone says I should put on my face and instead following how my skin feels.
My husband is 54 and looks maybe 40. He uses moisturizer in the winter also.”
“headlines from 2015: moisturizer sales through the roof as dry skin epidemic continues to climb!
chapstick, conditioner, hand lotions... these are crutches when used everyday.
and this website even features articles about how we've been duped into making daily habits out of things that end up making our situations worse. chapstick addicts should know by now that the reason their lips suffer from chronic dryness is because of their chronic use of chapstick
heed my words! moisturizer is great after a rough shave or on a dry cold day. but if you use any of these enhancers meant to help us on our not so great days, everyday. You will become a slave to these products”

“it's almost 2014, elections were barely over a year ago... how damn quickly did the GOP go from. We must open ourselves up! we must not be the party of stupid! we must get away from only pleasing white rich voters!

without changing a damn thing, they dive into the belly of the beast and expect what exactly?
we love you? marry my daughter?
self deportation is a great idea? abortion is bad but aiding the living is also bad?
no you're right, there's no racism anymore and the income inequality gap is a ruse produced by the media to turn us against you?”
“I wonder if they've investigated the Santa Susana area. there used to be a nuclear power plant that had a meltdown in the early 60's, and rocketdyne used the same mountains for aero innovations... there is a starling amount of radiation and pollution still there, plus there is a higher rate of cancer in east Simi Valley than west Simi. It's sad to see my home town in the news for something like this. Moorpark's population dramatically rose in the last 20 years because parents were trying to get away from the mental and physical poisons of the big city without having to drive 4 hours round trip to LA.
“no, Im saying their cannot be a recovery as long as real estate is out of reach for people trying to get to the next level. there's no stopping what investments people choose, it just so happens that this little fad is hurting us. there's no answer except that theystart losing out and start looking elsewhere”

“my point was only that that is not an answer because it's not just a fad. If it's a good investment, people will keep doing it.”
“What pisses me off is all these rich people flipping multiple houses. The real estate bubble popped, prices went down for less than a year. The second there was a drop in prices, the wealthy swarmed around houses that were affordable for middle classers, and tried to flip them to other rich people, and it works. Thats why they keep doing it. Young adults like myself, had next to no window to take advantage of the first time housing prices had lowered in nearly 20 years. Because why, not... we're rich, let's just keep doing whats bad for Californians as long as we make an extra 100k
I don't want to buy a house in crappy Lancaster, but I guess I better get to that job that pays 6 figures (SO EASY TO DO) if I want own anything bigger than a 2 bedroom condo”

“So you're asking people to refrain from looking for a solid return on investment for the sake of some middle class family that might potentially move into the house?
“8 Kardashian stories in the "Most Popular" section on the left.... HOW?!?
I understand the infatuations...Paris Hilton, Anna Nicole Smith, etc. This is nothing new. But how does this family have about 10 most popular stories on news sites for YEARS now. They have proven to be the most sustainable source gossip in the history of all of pop culture! And it is baffling to me that people get that much schadenfreude from 1 clan. if only we could find an energy source as easily renewable.
Meanwhile... Jennifer Lawrence is perfect. I'd rather look at something pleasant than stare at a plane crash.”
“I don't understand why a simple majority vote isn't the case for everything. the Senate exists to equalize power among the states no matter the population count. why does the field need to be skewed even further?”

“Let's say that voters are temporarily upset with Democrats -- or temporarily lose their sanity -- and they put Republicans in the majority in the House and Senate, and in the Presidency. The only thing then which might stand between the privatization of social security and all sorts of Social Darwinist/Koch brother/Ayn Rand-inspired damage might be a band of minority Democrats in the Senate. But this will work as an impediment to their designs only if a filibuster is in place for policy matters (as compared to just appointments) -- and if the minority Dem's have the fortitude to do it (which with Democratic politicians is always an uncertain assumption, to be sure).”

“@dpolito87....understood. The "forever" clause in the contract should be omitted since no one can reasonably guarantee a lifetime commitment We need to rethink and update the marital contract and bring the vows out of Medieval times.”

“Everytime a woman lies about getting raped or abused, it not only wastes tons of time, money, and smears an innocent persons reputation. It spits in the face of all the laws and good will meant to protect women. It invalidates attempting to build a society of equality. these kind of women make things worse for all other women, especially the ones who are getting abused”
darthconservatus on Nov 1, 2013 at 15:18:43
“right - but as an attorney that deals with these issues - there are typically no consequences if a woman lies - I have only seen it once because she actually lied in open court and then recanted and was charged with perjury. Other than that - in the US - a woman can falsely accuse you and- if it comes to nothing - just say "no hard feelings" and go home. the alleged assaulter has already been destroyed financially and emotionally.”

“I'm wondering if she spread the pictures herself so she could become famous as a victim. The level of hatred when she had no real evidence that he was behind it smacks of guilt on her part.”

“This doesn't say that she lied. It says they failed to find sufficient evidence to prosecute. That's not the same thing.”

“Was once behind a young woman at LAX almost in tears because the TSA guy was gleefully throwing away her expensive perfume and make up because she didn't have a ziploc. I had an extra ziploc and offered it up. The TSA agent told me to mind my own business if I didn't want to get in trouble and threw her stuff in the trash. i felt so much safer.”
