[ - ] Why do you guys all assume that men who become rich will leave their wives? You know divorce rates go down as income goes up, right? You cite examples of celebrities and politicians who leave their wives as if that's a good example. Bill Gates is still with his first wife. So if Jeff Besos. So is Mark Zukerburg. Highly intelligent rich men don't leave their wives. The biggest predictor of divorce is low IQ. Rich high IQ men are very unlikely to leave their wives for younger women. There are exceptions to this, but far more often than not, men who have lots of money are still married to their original wives. 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Your examples don't show what you think they do. None of the above have trophy wives. They have equal partners. Men who marry the high school prom queen will trade her in as they get older and richer because they value looks and superfical shit. They define their wives by those characteristics. Men who marry for companionship, brains, personality etc don't trade in their wives because those values never get old. [ Reply | More ]

I thought I was pretty close with sis, but turns out she told my 2 brothers and my parents and not me. My parents decided to tell me because they thought I should know, and I am honestly at a loss as to whether to say something to her.

[ - ] So according to UB, no black person has ever used Affirmative Action to get into a good college. Why don't we just get rid of it at the good colleges? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That's fine by me! But no one denies those connections. Everyone denies the Affirmative Action connection. So you shouoldn't even mind getting rid of that as it's never used at all. [ Reply | More ]

Why bother posting anything - you're not doing much and rehashing some things. People post all sorts of random thoughts. There's nothing wrong with thinking about someone's stupid comments later [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Friend from Europe I haven't see in years wants to come visit. I offered to let her stay in our home office, where DH and I work FT. I asked her to come in mid summer when we have the most time off. She said fine and then said she was coming for a whole week. I said fine. Then she said she's disabled now with an auto-immune and sleeps 18 hours a day and would need a ton of privacy (she is very nice I am painting her as annoying and she's not). So now is it OK to say no to the week and ask for a five night visit instead? We are still in planning stages. Feel like a jerk telling her to come only 5 days but I cannot not have access to my office all day -thought she would do typical touristy stuff in day so we could work. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

this - I would tell her that you were sorry but that you cannot actually take time off and since you have to work in your office you hope she is not offended by you cannot host her, but would still love to see her if she wanted to get a hotel [ Reply | More ]
