[ - ] Help me understand: a friend of a friend's only way of describing me is, "denigrating humour". I'd never summarize someone like that. our mutual friend has an extremely dry, dark sense of humour, so I also don't understand why their humour is acceptable and mine isn't. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

In Denmark, a country with a much higher quality of life than USA (btw the cradle of public policy as well), there are 270 thousand Muslims living and only 8 thousands jews. A ton of the bellicosity that piss off Muslims comes from pro-Israeli jews, because of what they have been doing to Palestine. A low % of jews keeps the muslims more content it seems.

Sometimes. And sometimes people just turn into people that they weren't when you met them. Do you really think someone is exactly the same person after a tragedy like losing a child, or developing an addiction that they didn't have when young, or battling cancer, or going to war and coming back? You are very naive or very young to believe that a person is everything they are ever going to be on the day of their wedding, like a woman has "all the eggs she'll ever have at birth." Personalities are constantly changing and developing over time. You are one person when you are young and single. You're another when you have your own children. You might change still more when you lose your own parents. Life has effects on people. [ Reply | More ]

Same here! I ONLY use Emirates because I travel with kids, they are by far the best with kiddos. For adult only trips, the best airlines from JFK: Nippon, Cathay, Emirates and Qatar in that order. [ Reply | More ]

np - This. I always fly Delta when I go to Europe. Haven't had any issues. The best (IMO) is Turkish Airlines. Sometimes hard to get direct flights without having a stop over in IST. Outside of that, its always a great flying experience. Their food in coach is really good. [ Reply | More ]

Banks give low appraisals on lines of credit because it lets them limit that line. If they get two appraisals, for example, they'll take the lower one. They are minimizing their risk, not predicting what your property might sell for on the open market. They don't want to ever have to sell your house, so they are extending themselves as little as possible towards that possibility. [ Reply | More ]

Probably the completely worst time. Purchased in 2002 and renovated from 2005-2007. We once nearly put it on the market about 5 years ago and the agent said 2.2 was reasonable. Appraisal for line of credit came in last week at 1.3. We have probably put 2.8 into it including original purchase. Just sort of shocking to see 1.5 disappear. [ Reply | More ]
