re: Wait to get divorced until kids turn 18? - pelicanpride
[quote]My wife was a cheerful, happy person when we were dating but now after kids she’s sarcastic, anxiety filled, and depressing to be around.[/quote] Young kids are hard as hell. Plus, even if she wants to be a stay-at-home mom, it can be very isolating. I know multiple women who felt reborn a...

re: Have women bitten off more than they can chew w/(family courts/marriage/divorce) - pelicanpride
[quote]Hell, Gwen Stefani is having a baby in her 50’s. Women aren’t nearly as limited as men think we are.[/quote] This is exceedingly rare with or without money. Odds are they weren’t her own eggs. I think some of the comments in this thread are silly. I have a career and 3 kids, and my family ...

re: Deputies arrest 4 in LSU student Madison Brooks case - pelicanpride
[quote]It's the same thing here. They don't care that these feral creatures actually raped this poor girl and left her on the side of the road like trash. Hell, you know there are hoodrats out there who are proud of these pieces of shite. They don't care if he actually did it. They only care about ke...

re: Holding young kids back a year/Repeating a grade. - pelicanpride
I would hold him back. I’m considering holding my second grade boy back for being in trouble constantly. He’s very upset by the possibility. His friendships are much stronger now than they were in first grade. He’s incredibly smart, but he struggles to sit still and is emotionally immature. In oth...

re: Are there still any good print magazines for sports? - pelicanpride
I looked at that online, but it covered way too much kid stuff and quasi-political stuff. He just wants the sports. I think he’s capable of reading an adult-level magazine if he likes the articles....

Are there still any good print magazines for sports? - pelicanpride
My 10 year old son is really into sports. I’m trying to get him to read more, and I think he would be more likely to read a print magazine than something online. I know Sports Illustrated used to be really good decades ago, but I’m not sure what’s good these days. The Athletic? I have no idea if the...

re: TOPS question. And it’s a sad sad question. - pelicanpride
Unless things have changed in the last 20 years, you lost your money, bud. You’ll look around in 3-4 years when your friends are graduating and getting jobs and decide you actually do want to go to school now, except you will be paying for it this time. I saw this exact scenario play out many, many ...

re: Deputies arrest 4 in LSU student Madison Brooks case - pelicanpride
[quote]Carver told investigators he believed Brooks was too drunk to know that she was consenting to sex and he “hated it,” the warrant states. [/quote] Then DO something. Intervene. I can’t think of a better reason to get your arse kicked. My sons are too young to understand this situation, but I...

re: LSU men’s team vs women’s team - pelicanpride
[quote]Above average boys HS teams would win the WBB national championship hands down. In your situation, the girls may be able to get a few threes off and in. That is all they could do.[/quote] This is true, but if the LSU WBB players had the speed and strength of an average man, they would ru...

re: 5% of people under 30 claim to be transgender (The Hill) - pelicanpride
You don’t have to be transphobic to be a little freaked out by some of this stuff. I had older brothers and was a complete tomboy growing up. I thought I should have been a boy, too. Fast forward 30 years, and I’m happily married with 3 kids. I’m still more into sports than most women and my fashion...

re: I just showed my 5 year old son the 'I Have a Dream' speech. - pelicanpride
The same thing happened with my oldest son. One of the bittersweet parts of MLK day is that it’s often the first time that children consider that people could be treated differently because of skin color. It’s important we teach about the past, so I’m glad the day exists. It’s just sad to see that p...

re: Divorce Experience - pelicanpride
[quote]Still, I tend to agree with the statement above. It is well known that choosing to stay home with the kids reduces a woman’s earning potential, often for the remainder of her career. [/quote] [quote]Again, so what? Don’t get divorced then.[/quote] Not planning to get divorced, but base...

re: Divorce Experience - pelicanpride
[quote]If a divorce happens years later the man should have to fill the gap between what she can make and what she might have been able to make had she stayed in the workforce.[/quote] I do admit that the court system is often slanted against men, especially when it comes to custody. Still, I ten...

re: How does one go about picking up girls at a bar? - pelicanpride
[quote]Or you could do like my friend used to and just play statistical probability and ask a whole bunch straight up if they want to frick. Eventually one says yes.[/quote] Ah, yes. The cast a wide net method. I was always intrigued by guys who did this with me. Never said yes, but I’m guessing h...

re: Woman raped in unmonitored drug sting sues her Louisiana police handlers - pelicanpride
[quote]All is well as long as the drug money pays the bills. Ain't that right, Saul Goodman? [/quote] Just saying we can’t have a functioning legal system unless someone defends this POS to the best of his ability. Not sure I could do it, but I’m not here to slander those who do. ...
