    Dumb, drunk kids doing dumb things at college isn’t new. But this kind of thing is what you get in the U.S. for a couple of reasons.

    1) the whole “no drinking until 21” thing here seems to lean toward a country where teaching responsible drinking isn’t done at all
    2) it’s really easy to make a lot of money off of encouraging young people to drink a bunch

  4. when a carnivore loves a vegetarian.

    Aside from leaving the meat products out when we make a meal together, there haven’t been too many compromises. Keeping a separate cutting board for meat isn’t that big a deal.

    What I am having trouble with is organic mayonnaise. After years of devotion to Best Foods/Hellman’s, anything else tastes funny. I can get by on that, but we decided to disagree and have separate peanut butter purchases. (YOU CAN HAVE MY JIF WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS.)

    We do agree that the Huy Fong chili garlic sauce is pretty much the best condiment ever though, so there you go.

  6. Everyone’s shacking up.

    All of my friends are now in that stage where they have either moved in with a partner or are in the process of doing so. There are two exceptions: one couple got married after years together and the other couple is expecting their first child.

    I know I’m in my thirties and actually behind the curve on this but it’s just kind of odd to think about.

  14. This conversation felt eerily stereotypical for phone contact with someone who works for a large financial institution.

    • Customer service rep:
      "Hi, my name is X. How may I help you today?"

    • Me:
      "I'd like to change the address on my credit card."

    • Rep (with suburbanite smugness):
      "OK. Well, hope you made it out of Multnomah County."

    • Me (equally smug in urban status):
      "Yeah, no. I like it here."
