She answered ZERO of the tough questions. The whole thing was a scam if you ask me.

This year, I moved from New York City where I had spent thirty years, to Amsterdam.

One of the nice little surprises here is that people are less hooked on their cell phones. Oh, don't get me wrong, everyone has a smart phone, and you do see people here walking down the street looking at their phones, and even biking with them (of course), but it's a lot less bad than in the United States - particularly in social events, no one pulls out their phones at all!

On the other hand, my Korean friends tell me that it's even worse there... hard to imagine really.

I'm looking forward to this video.

Many people, myself included, wondered if the whole thing was a trap - to discredit you by planting documents that were forged but that contained information that you strongly suspected to be true from other sources.

My faith in human nature has been sorely challenged recently - reddit is one of the few places where I'm positively surprised by people's human decency. Thanks for really making my morning.

I just don't believe a person exists that "cannot give up pork" though.

This is the same argument used by abstinence only educators, and it completely ignores human nature.

"Eating pork" is not part of human nature the way "having sex" is. There are a billion and more people who never eat pork and it doesn't seem to bother them in the slightest.

Indeed, there are many tens of millions of families in India who haven't eaten any animal products in generations, by choice (for religious, not economic reasons), and they don't periodically go berserk and suddenly demand cheeseburgers.
