Dec 15 MythicFox commented on SL Letter of the Day: Settle or Divorce?.
I'm more than a little curious as to how much therapy she's had. She only vaguely mentions it once in passing. If she's had years and years of therapy and this is where she's at, then she may just have to live with it. But if she's had, like, a month and a half, I'd say go back.
Nov 29 MythicFox commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Care Package.
I'd be willing to bet money that getting knocked up made her take stock of what kind of guy she's dating, and she realized she's just done with him. More or less what #27 said.

Though that said, if I were him I'd probably still have some sort of care package delivered (especially with some money to help cover expenses), but I wouldn't suggest actually texting her when he gets back from his trip. I'd have the note say "Gonna be out of town for a few days, but after that if you want to talk I'll be available." And then that's it. No more contact from him unless she reaches out first. It's pretty obvious one way or another that this relationship's over and that regardless of how he has or hasn't acted she's seeing the pregnancy as something he's done to her.

And if I could address the guy, I'd emphasize: Do not talk to her again unless she contacts you after that. You sending her a care package is not a promise that she'll accept or use it and it does not obligate her to talk to you again if she doesn't want to.

As someone who lives in WV and has had politician relatives, I agree with @48. It's blue on paper, but this state doesn't produce liberals who can hack it in the major parties. The only difference in WV politics between Republican and Democrat is how honest you are about your corruption.

From an interview with Elon Musk a couple of years ago (source: http://www.wired.com/2012/10/ff-elon-mus… ):

Musk: So, I thought, we should be able to make a much cheaper rocket given those materials costs. There must be some pretty silly things going on in the market. And there are!

Anderson: Like what?

Musk: One is the incredible aversion to risk within big aerospace firms. Even if better technology is available, they’re still using legacy components, often ones that were developed in the 1960s.

Anderson: I’ve heard that the attitude is essentially that you can’t fly a component that hasn’t already flown.

Musk: Right, which is obviously a catch-22, right? There should be a Groucho Marx joke about that. So, yeah, there’s a tremendous bias against taking risks. Everyone is trying to optimize their ass-covering.

Anderson: That’s a nice phrase.

Musk: The results are pretty crazy. One of our competitors, Orbital Sciences, has a contract to resupply the International Space Station, and their rocket honestly sounds like the punch line to a joke. It uses Russian rocket engines that were made in the ’60s. I don’t mean their design is from the ’60s—I mean they start with engines that were literally made in the ’60s and, like, packed away in Siberia somewhere.

I like #3's alternative version of the conversation.

But personally, I'd go with Dan's monologue and actually pause after saying "It involves details about my sex life with my fiance" and let them decide whether they want to keep going or if they'd rather not hear it from you or your sister.

In my experience, if someone has to stress multiple times that they "think of themselves" as open/understanding/accepting/etc. then they know that they're full of it. No wonder this guy was hiding things and preemptively feeling shame.
Aug 18 MythicFox commented on SL Letter of the Day: Potential Murder, She Wrote.
Just for the record, your planning-to-murder-you husband saying that he'd miss you if you weren't around doesn't mean he won't kill you. It just means he'll kill himself immediately afterwards.

No, no, I think society is crumbling because you think posting this will one day matter.
Jul 1 MythicFox commented on SL Letter of the Day: A Glorious Chorus.
I'm starting to suspect that R.R. might actually be a teenage girl trying to write gay male erotica and too lazy to do her own research.

I read the title and was hoping it was about cheap whores. I'm disappointed.
