Gah. Aside from the LW's question...all I keep thinking is "You two idiots had genital-contact/insertion sex w/o a condom and w/o jointly getting tested for EVERYTHING."
I started having sex long before I was 18. I demanded and provided the barriers. Sheesh.

Loverman and I (2 yrs now) have our own places in two seperate states (but work a block and a half away from each other) and have agreed that if we ever "move in together" we are getting a duplex. Different aesthetics. He likes having a TV, I don't own one. If I wake in the wee hours, I like to get up and read or work, he doesn't. Lots of things. But, it seems to be working so far. That's all we can hope for.

@27 that *would* be amusing.
However, I'm another who wouldn't hook up w/ a collegue. In fact, post-divorce, I had a rule for myself that placed my potential or current 3 C's -- client, contractor, or collegue -- off-limits. Yes, it was a little limiting. But, although Marie and Pierre Curie even shared a lab, I didn't think I was cut out for that much closeness. Not to mention that I really didn't want to find out how everyone else around me might take it. We also have a somewhat fluid management structure within my job category. Sometimes I'm managing people who have managed me on other jobs. Sometimes who the Proj Mgr is is determined by our skill set, not our rank. Sometimes it is determined by who wrote up the proposal. So, today's collegue could be tomorrow's boss. Potentially messy. I don't like mess.
Funnily enough, though, I had and have plenty of action. And I get to *still* enjoy sexual tension that everyone is keeping under wraps in the office. ;-)

@15 Upstate doesn't have strict gun laws.
@25 don't know any particulars in this case, but it is conceivable that someone could have (upstate) gotten a license in 1990, been convicted of a crime, and the databases never got synched. Upstate I don't think you have to renew, just get the license once and then no more checks.

Just want to emphasize this from #13:
Nihilism today is the nihilism of the right. The gun nuts, the religious right, the self-styled "job creator"s: none of them believe in America any more. While liberals and progressives and centrists are trying to hold civilization together and make the country function, a cancer eats the tissue of society. A cancer called 21st century conservatism.
And @ 37, that's where the "inefable" stuff comes in. (But I probably spelled it wrong.)
