    "That is slightly reassuring. I got a friend of mine to block me and see if my comments showed up on a mutual friend's status, and they didn't at all. So the idea that my friend was using some weird facebook workaround to avoid that seems concerning."

    Could that be do to who is set to be able to see your(the) posts? Like friends, friends only, etc? Cause it would make sense if it was a tighter lock down on the post that may be why yours were not showing while the other person may have a looser setting in use. Random interjection...

    How much should I spend on a wedding gift if I'm in the wedding as the officiant? Is it something that is typically more than just a run of the mill $200-300 deal or should I step my game up?

    No, you’re spending money to BE IN the wedding. What with the tux rental and other expenses, including bachelor party expenses, the Groom usually gets you guys a gift. So just your usual gift limit is good.

    I hate to admit it, but there's some good knock off t-shirts out there, on ebay. Got 3 retro-reprints of shirts that I used to have when I was younger (sob).
    But I got a fucking kick-ass PWEI 1991 Tour For Sanity shirt - Sample it Loop it Fuck it and Eat it all around the front, like I had in 1992. I shit my pants when I saw it.
    There's a Depeche 1988 Black 'Rose Bowl' shirt out there - the one with the 4-quad pics & logo in the centre.
    I used to have that shirt & still believe that it's somewhere @ my folks place.

    I have a bad sweet tooth so I like a lot of desserts but I think ice cream gets top billing. I typically go with a Reese Cup blizzard unless it is the magical time when Pumpkin Pie blizzards are available.

    To be clear cheesecake is the only correct answer.

    I'm recently (within the last 3 or 4 years) lactose intolerant, so cheesecake is no longer the answer. This makes me incredibly sad, because I was a cheesecake eating machine.

    peanut butter cups, whether on their own, in ice cream, in cheesecake, or in cookies. chocolate and peanut butter is the best combination ever.

    I am an absolute slut for cheesecake. Nothing will keep me from the cheesecake. Nothing.

    If I had to choose between cheesecake and my wife I would eat cheesecake with my ex wife.

    Anybody got some advice on how to find an affordable, trustworthy apartment / place to stay in Chicago for someone moving there from Europe (studies)?

    every apartment i've lived in as an adult (here in chicago) i have somehow found on craigslist. there are so many property websites and services that let you look at both rentals and places to buy, but somehow craigslist has always been a sure bet for me.

    that said, it's just really hard to find a place in general here that has everything you want, in your price range, in the location of your choice. i've mostly just gotten really lucky with all three of my places.

    also, if you're talking about just finding a room to rent from someone who's already got a place, i can ask around to some friends and see if anyone is looking for a roommate! just let me know what your date range is.

    My girlfriend would like me to grow a beard. I’ve always wanted to myself, but after one horrendous failed attempt during No-Shave-November, I never attempted again. For her sake, I will give it another go. Any recommendations on what needs to be done to perhaps help it grow in aside from just not shaving?

    oh man.
    This is a non answer, but I just tried the same shit and it just didn't work.
    Anyone on here who saw the pic on Facebook can attest to.that, ha.

    Maybe you can ask @heavenly_bearded

    He will also probably make fun of my beard attempt.

    I've noticed a lot of people asking this question since beards have been en vogue the last several years, and the simple answer is: If you can't grow an illustrious beard simply by not shaving, give it up.

    Some people have it. Some don't. It's simply genetic. You can use flaxseed, linseed or any other nutrient that stimulates hair growth, but if your beard grows in patchy or you just have no hair follicles it's futile, as the nutrients are only going to stimulate the follicles already there. Not gonna create new ones.

    And if you find someone selling something that purports to do otherwise, you should probably pick up some dick-enlarging pills from them, too. And maybe ask if they also have some magic beans.

    Yeah, this is pretty much what I've figured. The one time I did try was about 10 years ago, and yeah it did not go well. We'll see how it goes this time. I'm of the belief I just don't have the genes for it. The plan is to give it a month, and if it doesn't go well again, c'est la vie.

    I gave up on connecting sideburns when i around 25. I still cant grow sideburns like the Neil Young mutton chops i so wanted but it does more or less connect up with that white trash beard i employ. I have noticed that it has filled in some due me getting older but like Tyson stated above I'll never rock a viking beard as long as i live. To be fair I have pretty bald legs and arms as well. I do still have plenty of hair on my dome so i have that going for me. gl
