A better argument than piece of mind:
Even if you get "lucky" and die suddenly in an accident and never consume insurance, the odds are almost certain that someone you love - whether it be your parents, your spouse, your children, or a best friend - will not be so lucky.
And maybe it's better that we all pay a little more in taxes so we're not just waiting around for someone we love to start begging us for money to survive.

@DIRTY: Serious offer: I can find you a hot woman who will findom you to bankruptcy by forcing you to donate all of your money to homeless shelters.
And I suppose if you donate a few million to a homeless shelter, you're not really negatively impacting the homeless if you then sleep there, right?
@3: It's pretty hard to be a non-professional findom, isn't it?

Really, you should just never hit on women at all. Treat women like real human beings and every now and again one will like you. The real skill is just knowing when that has happened.
Once you can tell if a woman likes you or not, then you're both not missing opportunities and not throwing yourself at women who aren't interested.
And the number one way to prevent a woman from being interested in you is hitting on her before she's interested in you.

CAW is almost certainly just taking testosterone as a replacement and it's making her randy.
OkCupid has a "casual sex" option.
Or she could just put out on the first date then not text back.

@7: Sillyness. Some women just love getting fucked in the ass. They may be rare, but not all women require time and trust. Some just want a dick in their butt.
That said, I also think Dan really failed at this column.
First, Plan B has some pretty shitty side effects. It's called Plan B for a reason - you use it when you think the REAL birth control options you were trying to use failed. It should NOT be your primary means of birth control - both because its failure rate is relatively high, and because of those side effects. Which you especially don't want when you're flying.
So Plan B is a no-go here.
You're left with, condoms, diaphrams/caps, withdrawal, and.... yeah that's it since she's already into this menstrual cycle. If you're going to skip the condoms, for gods sake don't come in her, and make sure you have the abortion conversation first. Even then, if she gets pregnant and decides to keep the child for WHATEVER REASON, you're on the hook for a lifetime of child support.
I would STRONGLY recommend that if your friend is not already on hormonal birth control or has an IUD that you use condoms. Plan better next time.
