Basically, everybody who ever blew up their marriage is going to come on this thread and blame the institution as opposed to their own actions.

An analogy I thought of is that of a marathon. You know, the long haul. If you just started trying to run a marathon tomorrow morning you wouldn't get very far. But if you actually work at it over time, you can do it more quickly than you think.

The problem is that there are plenty of people who just don't put much into the marriage. Then they blame marriage itself for their woes

Probably something useful or entertaining.

Quincieta Coming Up Soon.

August 18, 2018 at 11:21 PM
Hello everyone. In early July my girlfriend asked me to be in her nieces quincieta's uncle dance. At first I was excited by it, but now I'm more worried than anything. The dance consists of 4 or 5 songs that lasts a total of 5 minutes. During the first and only rehearsal there was a choreographer that gave us a brief rundown of the dances. The whole thing seems very complicated as that there is 4 to 5 songs and each song has its own set of dance moves that kind of meld into each other. The other day I saw videos on our Facebook page of the other uncles doing rehearsals. I was confused because I wasn't invited to those rehearsals. Part of that is on me I guess because I didn't reach out to inquire as to when the next rehearsals would be( however, my girlfriend has asked her on more than one occasion about keeping us in the loop). But, at the same time, I feel left out of the loop as well. When I sent a message to my girlfriends niece about the rehearsals, all she sent me was YouTube videos of the dance moves. I've been trying them out but feel these videos are very inadequate substitute for in-person rehearsal. It then dawned on me that this dance is coming up in a couple weeks and I have not heard one word on the next rehearsal date. Using YouTube videos is just not cutting it. My girlfriend and I attempted on a few occasions to practice, but between our kids and work life, it's been super difficult to plan a day that works for both of us. At this point, I'm ready to tell my girlfriend that because I don't want to look like a complete idiot up on stage, it would probably be best if I not do the dance. At the same time though, I feel bad because my girlfriend makes this out to be an honor for me to be invited to do the uncle dance. I'm just stuck in limbo here. Part of me wants to do the dance but another, large part of me, does not because I haven't had the time nor the opportunity to do the rehearsals with the other uncles. Any advice is open. Thanks!

It's Been done!

Honestly, never. I'm in my 30s and still work the same low wage job I had right out of high school. I also dress like a stoner teen. Most people where I live have the daily 1:30 hour commute to work, wear a business suit and work for a salary, have a wife, house, and kids, and so on. Everyone at my work circles around like vultures trying to nab that promotion while I remain content in entry level for over 8 years.

That's the problem: they didn't know what they didn't know. One of the cardinal rules of caving is that you need to know if and when a cave system floods when planning your trip, and stay out if flooding is a possibility.


I can't imagine it's going to be possible to safely get those kids and their leader out until the water subsides. It's just too likely they'll drown. Cave diving is not for novices. I think they're going to be stuck in there for a long time.

Very good Russian performance against a pretty awful Saudi side, some lovely finishes for the Russian goals. Actually quite enjoyed this match which I was not expecting.

FBI requests we all reboot our home Internet router

The FBI, Homeland Security, and the US Justice Department have asked that we all reboot our home (or small office) Internet routers and other network devices as soon as possible.


The short story is that a foreign government's hacking group has taken over 500,000 or so home office routers and installed malware that can capture your logons and password.
Rebooting eliminates the malware, but does not remove the vulnerability that allowed to infection to occur.
