    Do you work out regularly?

    Absolutely, yes. I do yoga for 45 min. about 5 days a week. I do cardio 3-4 times per week. I need to get back to strength training. Exercise is health and vitality.

    Men Who Fail to Launch into Adulthood

    I believe we are at a cultural transition point where many, not all, men lack a clear identity related to relationships with women. It's like they know the gender roles of the prior generations are gone, but don't know what their roles are. And there are too many weak women who let them get away with not pulling their weight. So, women like TheCommuter and I will choose to remain single rather than settle for a man-boy.

    Men Who Fail to Launch into Adulthood

    I've noticed this TV trend as well. Raymond of Everybody Loves Raymond is an example. I didn't speculate it to be a result of the feminist movement but rather fear of making fun of women. You can make fun of those on top, in power, but not the "weaker" person (the female). To me, I see it as men being more secure in their positions to be made fun of. Or I could be wrong. This issue probably has multiple aspects, as well.

    Men Who Fail to Launch into Adulthood

    Sometimes I wonder if so much attention has been put into encouraging girls' educational and career development...that boys have been left behind.

    2nd Presidential Debate...like a Boxing Match!

    Some women do, some women don't. Some men do, some don't. I don't.

    2nd Presidential Debate...like a Boxing Match!

    I was disgusted by Romney's patriarchal attitudes towards women. He was asked about equal pay for women and he responded with odd statements about having to go to "women's groups" to get "binders full of women" and then about making arrangments for female workers to get home so they could make dinner. He's 30 years behind the times. I also found his statements about capital gains taxes being so important because of people living on interest earnings from investments to be oddly out of touch as well. His voice was so earnest related to that topic - it telegraphed this is what he really cares about. Romney understands one type of life - that of patriarchal white men who live on investments. That's his life, that's what he understands. He showed his true colors months ago with his 47% statement. He doesn't understand life for most of America - he understands uppercrust white life where men are in charge. It's disappointing because I could get behind a Republican candidate if they didn't come down on the wrong side of social issues.

    The VP Debate: "bunch of malarkey..."

    Radditz: skilled. Biden was his scrappy-yappy-blabby self in the debate. I trust he is smart enough to reign it in if engaged in international situations requiring diplomacy. If he matched your ideology you see him as "real" and a little funny. If you have another ideology, you see him as annoying or something negative. What Biden didn't do? Bland himself down to a polished, typical politician who tries to pander to everyone and lacks being genuine. Ryan: polished and slightly endearing, but lacking substance and specifics. But then - he doesn't match my ideology, so that's how I view him. Oh, and he has pretty eyes. Darn those handsome conservatives.

    Jury duty summons!

    I have found jury duty very interesting in the past. That said, I'm not sure I could serve in an unbiased manner in the future. As a correctional (prison) nurse I spend all day with convicted criminals. I know their culture, language, and tattoos. I can now spot most ex-cons or criminals from a "mile away" so to speak. I see this when I'm in a grocery store, etc. I can distinguish often benign tattoos from tattoos belonging to criminal elements. If the defendant had tattoos or other characteristics I am familiar with as belonging to criminal gangs I could honestly NOT remain impartial. I think I'd be excused. Also, it would be risky for me to walk the prison yard around someone I voted to convict. I think that would be an unreasonable risk to my safety - hope the judge would agree!

    Child with intellectual disabilities denied transplant at CHOP

    This thread has deteriorated. It's entirely possible to disagree without being disagreeable, as the expression goes. I consider it "disagreeable" to go beyond disagreement and suggest the OP go take university classes. That is condescending.

    You call it manipulation. I call perseverance and advocacy.

    Child with intellectual disabilities denied transplant at CHOP

    Interesting. I'm not sure that intellectual disabilities are considered mental illness. I think they might be different categories. For example, what we call mental retardation would be an intellectual disability while, for example, schizophrenia would be a mental illness. I'm thinking of the difference between cognitive function and mood/affect/personality disorders. I could be wrong - not sure. Mercyteapot can you weigh in on this?
