  1. 15yos who haven't completed a high school education with babies tend to have worse overall outcomes than those who are 18+ when they have their first child.
  2. I don't think you completely get how immunity works.
  3. He has enough sense to get vaccinated so his understanding is leaps and bounds beyond hers.
  4. You won't go to jail for simply being wrong on your taxes. The tax code is really not that complicated for most personal income tax calculations. We usually have ours set up to where we are +/- $400-500 each year. To our second bolded, we operate as a pay as you go system so that the government has an income stream throughout the year, and also because most people would rather not have to hold thousands in cash to pay a lump sum bill every year.
  5. I think the primary goal is to make it less likely they become parents or catch an STD while in high school.
  6. Her willful ignorance only lacks a significant risk because she is raising her children in a modern nation where the vast majority still vaccinate. Her child has a right to judge her.
  7. Damn government wanting to protect its citizens from dangerous communicable diseases. Polio for all! FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!
  8. Good choice! I have been there 2 times and it was very good!
  9. Hold on a minute...regarding the bolded: are you saying 43% of children have chronic illnesses that include autoimmune and neuroimmune disorders, or that 43% have a neuroimmune or autoimmune condition? Those are two very different numbers.
  10. I always enjoy watching the Dunning-Kruger effect play out in real time.
  11. Just so you know everything with the other insurance company is standard. They have to verify certain information regarding the other driver before they will accept liability (example: was the driver the owner/driving with permission of the owner, get their statement, etc.). They gave you the answer of "may" because at the moment you spoke to them the only information they have is from an alleged injured party. This case is pretty clear cut as you described it so I wouldn't worry about getting reasonable expenses reimbursed. If you have not done so yet, you should see a doctor and get checked out.
  12. Very likely. The charitable deduction tax break was created to incentivize giving.
  13. But if most aren't actually doing the hook ups (and most teens are not - even those engaging in sexual activities are more often in a steady relationship), then what is really being pushed is yet another moral panic by some. No one has said hook ups don't happen, but what is evident in the data is that they are *not* the norm for teens as the vast majority do not participate,
  14. But we don't have accurate statistics from the time period you reference (there were serious reporting bias issues in the early surveys), so much of what is claimed about that time is anecdotal. Regardless, it is hard to claim " nowadays casual hookups are considered the norm" for teens when the data shows they aren't the norm.
  15. Teen sexual activity is actually declining in recent years. Fewer teens are also having sex with multiple partners. In general, teens today are having less sex, and it is generally safer. --Between 1991-2015, the proportion of students who ever had sexual intercourse decreased from 54% to 41%.3 --The percent of adolescents who are having sex at earlier ages has decreased since 1988 and contraceptive use has increased since the 1990s. Together these two factors have contributed to the U.S. reaching its lowest teen pregnancy and birth rates in years.
  16. Believing teens are mature enough to have sex /= understanding that many will still have sex.
  17. Yes, as well know premarital sex was completely unknown until the wicked media changed society.
  18. Legally "tacitly condoning sex" has no meaning when determining liability. The medication restrictions are an overreaction and most have no real basis in liability law either.
  19. Russia isn't a communist country.
  20. Did you actually read it? Because that is not what it says.
  21. Fascinating articled I stumbled upon today: I am still digesting it and need to give it another read, but many here have discussed issues covered in this article so I thought it may make for some discussion.
  22. It's common in large parts of the country. Even national orgs like AAU recognize grade indirectly. For example players are eligible for 16U in basketball if they meet the age requirement or are in the 10th grade (grade exception). In the younger age groups they used to limit the number of grade exceptions per team but I *think* that may have been dropped. I have lived in 4 states and in all the local rec basketball leagues all went by grade, which makes sense as the players move up to school basketball as a cohort.
  23. It doesn't really matter. The prosecution has a living victim, forensic evidence and a confession on multiple capital crimes. The only defense strategy is likely some claim of insanity, which won't go anywhere. Wisconsin is not a death penalty state so I would not be surprised to see this end without a trial.
  24. It can vary by state, but in general a burn that is blistering would be considered emergency care and she would be able to seek treatment at the nearest emergency/urgent care facility. They usually can require follow up care through their provider.
