As a morbidly obese teen and early 20 year old through the early years, I never had such an issue with the American trainers. They felt empathetic and caring while the Australians felt nasty and out to 'get' the contestants

My daughter has one every night with an odd night off. She has one with her dad to wind down and spend some time with him before bed. But sandpits, bike riding, slides and swings, chasing cows,  fencing,  playing in the dam means she needs one most nights

I have tried to read Boy Swallows Universe so many times and I get to around page 5 and can't do it.

My favourite books ever are:
A Fault in Our Stars
Les Miserables
The Kite Runner
The Magicians Nephew and The Last Battle

And I'm sure there are others I can't think of.

So pesca-pollo vegetarian then?

I agree about the side characters  and even. Jonah. But Amy is a horrible human being. 

In saying that maybe if I hadn't watched the 5 seasons on Netflix in 2 weeks she wouldn't have annoyed me.

I also lost my virginity not by choice. Stayed with him for another year and then moved to Europe to escape. The way I live with it, and it happened more than 20 years ago, is to call it non-consensual sex. And even 20 years later my now loving very considerate husband is still suffering from that dude's choices.

I got an eye roll yesterday when I was asked by my almost 40 year old husband if the dishwasher was clean and I replied with, 'it's pretty easy to tell if you look at the cutlery'

This is emotional abuse. He's old enough to be alone. Be honest, it's not working for you and you need to make alternative arrangements. If he wants to keep the house you move. Take the kids if you need but if you want them to stay at the house then you should organise a schedule when you and then when he live elsewhere.

While I love the Netflix series of unfortunate events it's only 3 seasons long too so they mashed it together as well

Kristen Dunst is literally a lead in Jumanji

@kathp I would have to say the majority of Christians I know are aware that the Bible is a product of its time and that it can, and should, be interpreted in a way that moves with the times. It's controversial because he is fundamentalist and fundamentalism in Christianity is seen as 'kooky' and 'funny' but fundamentalists in other religions are seen as scary.  I watch TV such as the duggars and they are also billed as being weird, but they're actually really scary. 

Christian beliefs and understanding of the world changes all the time. Would you like to go back to before the reformation? I want my friends who hold a God in their hearts to be able to reconcile the social progress with their love of their God. And by looking at the bible as the text and that it can't be changed means that this would not be possible.

If you would like to rely on the bible, I'll have to refer to the oft cited Leviticus which also instructs people not to mix materials in their clothes, that anything a woman touches during her menses is unclean (even if the blood doesn't come into contact with it), no one should eat hare or pig, sets out tithing,  and lots of rules about leprosy.  Should they be read literally in 2020?

What on Earth? Why would anyone think asking other parents to take their kids out of their school is even remotely acceptable??

@random dude it's becoming more and more common to not set it.

I will clarify that sometimes I ask them to finish up something, or do assignment work, or watch a TV show that relates to what we're studying.

I haven't set homework in years. I can't be bothered setting it, putting in consequences when it's not done, marking it etc. 

They do what they need to do in class.

Actually, I do set homework. I ask them to read for 20 minutes a day...

Eh  I know of a couple who each had AVOs out on each other and still shared a bed. Lost all confidence in them then

I am obese. And I always have been.

I'm petrified of my daughter going through life like me.

She has a condition where she has both low tone so can't support herself in your arms, and thick and heavy bones. She weighs as much as the next clothes size up says, but is small on the height chart.

I'm so guilty that I've lumbered her with the abuse people gave and give me.

But I want to know how they worked out the points? Some things are like nothing and worth lots of points and some are illegal and worth very little.

I need to know why she was getting a salivary gland out? Is she sick?

@Brielle Burns that's great but there's no acknowledgement? Normally you acknowledge.
