Bill Nelson, who is up for re-election Nov. 6, spoke to about 30 people Wednesday in the Reitz Union about the upcoming election. Nelson, 70, said new election laws are suppressing students votes. He said that for decades, people could register to vote and then, on the day of the election, change their addresses. But now, people need to show a government-issued ID with their voting address, or they will be issued a provisional ballot. He said that in the 2008 election, half of those provisional ballots did not count in Florida. Nelson encouraged everyone to vote early. He said registered voters in Alachua County can receive absentee ballots at the Supervisor ing them in, people can vote on-site and turn ballots in until Saturday. He said early voting starts Saturday and lasts for a week. Nelson, who attended UF in the 1960s before transferring to Yale University, also spoke about student loans and the economy. He said that coming out of the recession, students who have to pay back loans have their normal rates cut in half. He also said for certain high-demand occupations, student loans are basically forgiven, e.g., if a doctor moved to work in a rural area that didnt have a doctor before. Nelson said the states mentality is to cut, cut, cut scholarships, grants and other funding for education. This nonsense has got to stop, Sen.

Walstad said the largest event is Haunted Broward, which will take place in the Broward basement tonight from 8 p.m. to midnight.

She said a team of 20 volunteers helped set up walls for the haunted houses maze Wednesday in the basement. The haunted houses trail weaves for about 300 yards.

It will offer activities like a costume contest, prizes, a booth with a palm reader said president of Yulee areas council Kathryn Kerr. The 20-year-old psychology sophomore said the carnival is more fall-focused than Halloweenthemed, though. Its a lot of work, and Im really nervous for it, she said.

Ahh, Ann Coulter. Like many people, she took to Twitter after the presidential how she felt. While some declared President Obama won the debate, Coulter felt a little differently. Her tweet reads: I highly approve of Romneys decision to be kind and gentle to the retard. She still hasnt deleted that message or apologized for it, by be surprised when Coulter is insensitive about a subject or topic, but here we are. It doesnt mean that everyone is OK with it. John Franklin Stephens, an athlete and spokesman for the Special Olympics, wrote her an open letter. Im a 30-year-old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the publics perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow, Stephens wrote. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly how to respond to your use of the R-word last night. The letter continues: I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low-grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift. Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are and much, much more. Her representation team should scramble. Its like she cant stop insulting people. She hasnt contacted Stephens, according Special Olympics in his letter. He all but dared her to walk away with your heart unchanged. Dont get your hopes up, Stephens. Coulter replied to a request from Politicker, at 3 a.m. Wednesday no less, for a comment or response to critics of her offensive tweet. The only people who will be offended are too retarded to understand it, she wrote. That word doesnt mean what she thinks it means. tended meaning of (words, a language or speaker) or to perThe entire world understood your intended meaning, Coulter. But maybe we dont understand the cause of it. There is no need to continue to insult anyone with the use of names or hateful words.

Social events and nonacademic work take up a large bulk of time throughout the week. Even when we are on break, many students shift their focus from academcareer research until classes resume. The addition of a fall break in the semester would increase student productivity drastically.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Oct. 18, the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. What does that mean, and how does it affect us? Recently, a woman named Edith Windsor was required by the federal government to pay a whopping estate tax of about $363,000 on her inheritance from her partner. The government of New York recognized Windsor and her partner of about 42 years as spouses, but the federal government treated them like strangers. The inheritance would not have incurred an estate tax had the federal government recognized their partnership. The federal government failed to recognize the marriage because of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. DOMA was enacted by Congress in 1996. union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. Windsor took the issue to court, and she won. More than that, DOMA was declared unconstitutional. This is a great victory for those in favor of gay marriage. However, I wonder how this act passed To be very clear, Im not talking about the religious ceremony of marriage that takes place in a church. Thats a different kind of marriage. Im talking about the legal designation think of it as a drivers license. In a free society, the state has no business conducting religious ceremonies. As written in the majority opinion of Windwith holy matrimony. As a gay man, I am frequently exposed to vitriol about partaking in the civil institution of marriage. I pay taxes just like everyone else. Why should I be denied entry into an institution offered by the state on the basis of my gender, sex or orientation? The replies often sound something like, it. The problem I see with this answer is that in a free society, in a secular state, what the god or gods of any group of people want is irrelevant. That should sound appropriate to most people. That means we are all free to practice whatever faith we want, or to practice no faith at all, and still be treated equally under the law. Another argument Ive heard has to do with ability to give birth. But why should childbirth have anything to do with marriage? Marriage under the state has to do with the civil union of two persons. Even DOMA lacks any mention of children. The most heinous argument Ive heard is that gay marriage will lead to other things like marriage between people and animals. I dont understand how such a conclusion can be drawn. How could opening a state institution to all pairs of consenting adults lead to anything like that? As I see it, there is no good reason to bar gay people from getting married under the law. For many, its simply a problem with the riage. To be honest, though, I dont think gay marriage should be the great moral debate of our time. For anyone who is truly interested in freedom, the greater question we ought to ask is about the role of the state in general. The state offers us incentives to get privileges. How often should the state offer incentives to curb the behavior of the nonviolent populace? The state also offers disincentives, like raising taxes on cigarettes. Should the state engage in such social engineering at all? Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Column Brandon Lee Gagneopinions@alligator.org

BRUNA BOUHIDAlligator Contributing WriterProducts such as pumpkins, soap and salsa will be sold on the North Lawn from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today as part of an on-campus farmers market. dent organizations including Bubbles Bailey Soap & Stuff, Vitos Coffee, Little Bitt Nursery and the Flour Pot Bakery will set up under tents and along the sidewalk, said UF Inter-Residence Hall Association farmers market director Beth Thompson. The farmers market is part of Eco-Week, hosted by IRHA and ganizations want to encourage students to live sustainably, and part of that lifestyle is buying local. Thompson said she hopes the event will allow students to see how simple meal-planning with fresh ingredients can be. When youre a student, youre only cooking for yourself, the 19-year-old marketing sophomore said. The quantity is smaller at a farmers market and cheaper than eating out. IRHA put on a similar market in Spring where about 1,000 students stopped by, Thompson estimated. The success of todays event will determine whether IRHA can reach its goal of sponsoring two to three mar kets a semester, Thompson said. We want to allow students to celebrate local agriculture, she said. Many of the familiar vendors from the Union Street Market will be on campus today, including Crazy Hart Ranch, Cross Creek Honey and Bear Bottom Boyz Salsa, Thompson said.Market on campus today CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator WriterFor Ryan Mychal-Brooks Burney, a nearly $12,000 pur chase with stolen credit card information he bought for $500 seemed like a steal. But the deal soured when Gainesville Police arrested Burney, 30, of Northwest 57th Place, on felony grand theft and fraud charges Tuesday afternoon. On Oct. 18, Burney went to the Palm Chevrolet dealership, 2600 N. Main St., and negotiated with a salesperson to buy a 2004 Lincoln Town Car for $11,995. Burney drove away with the car after making two $500 down payments with a stolen card number, which he told the salesperson was his sisters. He previously bought the information from someone in Atlanta for $500 cash, according to a GPD arrest report.

On Monday, Butchee, 51, of Lake Alfred, went to the MidFlorida Community Credit Union and saw her bank account overdrafted by almost $1,000. I kind of assumed it was the banks mistake and they had moved a decimal point, she said Wednesday. I was a little mad about it. After being advised by a bank teller of possible fraud, Butchee reported the loss to the Winter Haven Police Department, which then called Gainesville Police. GPD spokesman Ben Tothe dealership Tuesday, sifted through records and found Burneys fraudulent down payments on the car. A dealership employee called Burney to tell him the car needed a GPS installed. When Burney drove back arrested him, and employees recovered the car, Tobias said. After his arrest, Burney told debit card information was stolen, according to the report. Police booked Burney into Alachua County Jail at about 4:40 p.m. Tuesday.

TEENAGE CHOPSHOPS ALBUM EVIL TWIN WILL BE RECORDED WITH FUNDS FROM KICKSTARTER. MIKE LLERENATime is running out for local indie-rock band Teenage Chopshop. The group has until the clock strikes midnight Oct. 31 to raise funds for its musical fairytale. The band is funding its second album Evil Twin through a campaign on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a fundraising website for creative projects. Launched in April 2009, the platform allows people to contribute money to campaigns of their choice. Frontman and manager Charlie Fehrenbacher said Teenage Chopshop launched its Kickstarter campaign Sept. 27, including a brief promotional video that explains what the band will do with its funds and how it plans to give back to its fans and investors. I had all of these songs written and knew I wanted to put out a new album, Fehrenbacher said. It was becoming crystal clear how it was going to turn out and what the songs were going to be like. It was at that point that I said this would be really good for a Kickstarter project. According to Kickstarter policy, if the band does not reach its $3,200 goal, it must forfeit all accumulated funds. The money will buy microphones, editing equipment, record-pressing materials, T-shirts and posters, Fehrenbacher said. While the band members recognize they might not reach their goal, Fehrenbacher said they will still produce and release their album. According to www.kickstarter.com, more than $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding over 30,000 creative projects. Fehrenbacher and keyboardist/vocalist Ashley Phillips founded the band in 2011. Guitarist Tanner Yea, a 20-year-old UF journalism junior; drummer Aidan Murphy, a 20-year-old UF physics junior; and bassist Clinton Martz, a 19-year-old Gainesville resident, were recruited through a Craigslist post. Its really about getting our name out there and giving people a taste of what we do, Fehrenbacher said. And the fact that were doing every single thing we do at home by hand we dont want to rely on a record company, or a producer, or an image consultant or a manager. As far as Im concerned, were smart enough and talented enough that we can do all of that stuff on our own. Brandon Nall is an artist and graphic designer who provided the artwork for the bands website. Nall, 21, who attends the University of North Flor ida in Jacksonville, went to high school and played in a band with Yea previously. A community that can support its artists is very Nall said. If there are people that enjoy what you have to give, thats awesome. Fehrenbacher said Kickstarter is a great way to let the community get involved in the music. I read articles from music bloggers saying theyre worried that the independent music scene is going to fail over time, Fehrenbacher said. Whats going to keep the music scene alive are the people still out there that care enough to work hard. The band will host a CD release show for Evil Twin Dec. 8 at The Atlantic. As of Wednesday night, Teenage Chopshop accumulated $600 and 14 backers on their Kickstarter to the bands campaign, visit www.teenagechopshop.com.Local band asks Web to fund album DEVON ABELMANForget spending way too much money on way too little fabric for a sexy-something Halloween costume.

an extended period of time. That brings me to this warning: Never date someone you meet on Halloween. Now, Im sure youre wondering, But Ian, what if I meet the boy or girl of my dreams? To which I say, If your dreams consist of romantic relationships with people dressed as animals, cartoon characters or the human centipede, you should see a therapist. If you meet someone dressed as a zombie, he or she is probably lacking brains or creativity lets face it, zombie costumes are over. Its beaten to death, everybody. We get it. If you meet a guy dressed in a loincloth, odds are hes reliably troglodytic. If you meet a girl with more cleavage than a pumpkin patch, odds are thats how shell dress to meet your mom. Dressed like a German barmaid? One too many shots of Jagermeister, and she could probably bench press you. Dressed like a porn star? He probably has herpes. A cat or dog costume? Shes probably high maintenance. Or he. Shout out to my men who love men and my ladies who love ladies. Dont think this warning is heteronormative; were all in danger of a bad Halloween date. If a nightmare of a time is what youre looking for, trust me, youre better off meeting someone on Craigslist. Where my own date was concerned, she wisdom with an air of mystery. I was a conhard work, ruggedness and dependability; although, in reality, I just found a hardhat The owl was not mysterious or symbolic of anything, just nice, plain and a little mousy. I was not reliable or rugged or handsome, but rather bookish and aloof. Even in the best scenario, if your date isnt the costume he or she embodied, he or she is actually the polar opposite. If you want my advice, go to a Halloween party dressed as yourself, and wait for someone to ask you, What are you supposed to be? When they do, smile and say, 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 HALLOWEEN, from page 10Halloween costumes mislead Comic artists pass on sleep for pen, paper, coffeement thats more focused on your growth as an artist than a traditional art school would be, Pijoan said.

Upstairs, UF digital arts and sciences sophomore Taylor Gregory was packing up his drawing tools. Gregory, 19, started the Sequential Artists club at UF and has taken a few SAW classes to maintain his love of comics outside of school. Its something I want to do, he said, but its not my major. Four Cokes and 12 hours later, Gregticipants were not halfway through their comics. His hand was cramping too much to continue, he said, an issue many other artists faced as well. In fact, Pijoan keeps a yoga mat next to his drawing desk at home to combat back and wrist cramps. It seems silly, but its strenuous, he said. One of the teachers in the program and owner of the workshop, Tom Hart, popped in at about 11 p.m. Hes participated in 24-Hour Comics Days as a student and teacher. in that amount of time forces you to make decisions about your priorities, he said.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 13 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Dear Mediocre Advice, Whenever I have a wild night, I end the eve ning with a drunken text. Usually, I am reminded of my decision in the morning when I wake up in that persons bed. But on unsuccessful nights, all Im left with are embarrassing text messages. Is being a promiscuous drunk something I need to apologize for the next day if Im rejected? Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Why do some women say they need an emotional connection to give a man a blow job and would instead be more willing to have sex (penetration)? If sexy time is sexy time, then why would certain activities be off the table? (I did the sexy time thing on purpose, because I know you dont like it.) Dear Questionable Person, Sexy time makes you sound like you cant speak proper English or you have suffered from a severe blow to the head no pun intended. Certain activities are off the table, because one of the people involved in this dirty courtship is not comfortable. BJs are more personal than sexual intercourse. Its putting someones junk in your mouth and hoping that when you recite the alphabet in your head, you only need to make it to Z once. Also, that person is counting on the others hygiene to be impeccable, which is a giant leap of faith. For something that personal, energy-consuming and literally in-your-face, the giver has to really like the receiver to volunteer to give a BJ. This is not the case in most sexual encounters. Dear Friend, There is nothing wrong with buying condoms. In fact, cashiers should thank the person buying condoms, because that person is a responsible individual. The last time I bought some, the nice Indian man at Walgreens smiled at me. Im sure it was for different reasons, but someone who wont buy condoms but will still participate in using them. Its common courtesy to at least offer to buy them. Your boyfriend needs to grow up, because sex isnt something to be ashamed of, and both parties should al ways be prepared. Ask him if hed rather be the guy buying condoms or diapers. Dear Mediocre Advice, My friend wants to get a neck tattoo. How can I persuade her to not do that? Dear Friend, hired with a tattoo in such a noticeable place. Try somewhere that is easier to cover up, like behind the ear or the upper back. Maybe your friend can bring back tramp stamps instead. Something small on the back of the neck is alright, too, but whatever it is will still make her holidays. Does she want her mother to drink a little more on Thanksgiving because she feels like she has failed her? Tell her to prepare and a mom who will rue the day she ever let her leave for college. Dear Friend, Dont apologize! Stand by those weird drunken texts you send. Excessive drinking leads to tell ing the truth, which you send via text. So why would you want to apologize for that? Unless you were insulting your best friend or someone you have feelings for, dont worry about it. Drunken texts are the greeting cards of 2012. Yours says, Dear Mediocre Advice, My boyfriend is too shy to buy con doms, so I do it. I dont mind, but it would be nice if he at least offered. What should I do or say so he will man up?

He shot 42.1 percent on three-point attempts, leading all Gators with at least 50 shots. As Murphy prepares to start his his post offense. guy that steps away from the bason Oct. 10. The next step for him is can he become a scorer from the perimeter and from the mid-post area or from the low post. He knows he needs to do that.

With transfer Damontre Harris out with a labrum tear, Floridas frontcourt players were on the court a greater opportunity to strengthen his post offense. I shoot the ball decently well, Murphy said.

But now, people need to show a government-issued ID with their voting address, or they will be issued a provisional ballot. He said that in the 2008 election, half of those provisional ballots did not count in Florida. Nelson encouraged everyone to vote early.

He also said for certain high-demand occupations, student loans are basically forgiven, e.g., if a doctor moved to work in a rural area that didnt have a doctor before.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7 On Oct. 18, the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. What does that mean, and how does it affect us? Recently, a woman named Edith Windsor was required by the federal government to pay a whopping estate tax of about $363,000 on her inheritance from her partner. The government of New York recognized Windsor and her partner of about 42 years as spouses, but the federal government treated them like strangers. The inheritance would not have incurred an estate tax had the federal government recognized their partnership. The federal government failed to recognize the marriage because of the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA. DOMA was enacted by Congress in 1996. union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. Windsor took the issue to court, and she won. More than that, DOMA was declared unconstitutional. This is a great victory for those in favor of gay marriage. However, I wonder how this act passed To be very clear, Im not talking about the religious ceremony of marriage that takes place in a church. Thats a different kind of marriage. Im talking about the legal designation think of it as a drivers license. In a free society, the state has no business conducting religious ceremonies. As written in the majority opinion of Windwith holy matrimony. As a gay man, I am frequently exposed to vitriol about partaking in the civil institution of marriage. I pay taxes just like everyone else. Why should I be denied entry into an institution offered by the state on the basis of my gender, sex or orientation? The replies often sound something like, it. The problem I see with this answer is that in a free society, in a secular state, what the god or gods of any group of people want is irrelevant. That should sound appropriate to most people. That means we are all free to practice whatever faith we want, or to practice no faith at all, and still be treated equally under the law. Another argument Ive heard has to do with ability to give birth. But why should childbirth have anything to do with marriage? Marriage under the state has to do with the civil union of two persons. Even DOMA lacks any mention of children. The most heinous argument Ive heard is that gay marriage will lead to other things like marriage between people and animals. I dont understand how such a conclusion can be drawn. How could opening a state institution to all pairs of consenting adults lead to anything like that? As I see it, there is no good reason to bar gay people from getting married under the law. For many, its simply a problem with the riage. To be honest, though, I dont think gay marriage should be the great moral debate of our time. For anyone who is truly interested in freedom, the greater question we ought to ask is about the role of the state in general. The state offers us incentives to get privileges. How often should the state offer incentives to curb the behavior of the nonviolent populace? The state also offers disincentives, like raising taxes on cigarettes. Should the state engage in such social engineering at all? Brandon Lee Gagne is an anthropology senior at UF. His column appears on Thursdays.Column Brandon Lee Gagneopinions@alligator.org

The farmers market is part of Eco-Week, hosted by IRHA and ganizations want to encourage students to live sustainably, and part of that lifestyle is buying local. Thompson said she hopes the event will allow students to see how simple meal-planning with fresh ingredients can be. When youre a student, youre only cooking for yourself, the 19-year-old marketing sophomore said. The quantity is smaller at a farmers market and cheaper than eating out. IRHA put on a similar market in Spring where about 1,000 students stopped by, Thompson estimated. The success of todays event will determine whether IRHA can reach its goal of sponsoring two to three mar kets a semester, Thompson said. We want to allow students to celebrate local agriculture, she said.

On Oct. 18, Burney went to the Palm Chevrolet dealership, 2600 N. Main St., and negotiated with a salesperson to buy a 2004 Lincoln Town Car for $11,995. Burney drove away with the car after making two $500 down payments with a stolen card number, which he told the salesperson was his sisters.

TEENAGE CHOPSHOPS ALBUM EVIL TWIN WILL BE RECORDED WITH FUNDS FROM KICKSTARTER. MIKE LLERENATime is running out for local indie-rock band Teenage Chopshop. The group has until the clock strikes midnight Oct. 31 to raise funds for its musical fairytale. The band is funding its second album Evil Twin through a campaign on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a fundraising website for creative projects. Launched in April 2009, the platform allows people to contribute money to campaigns of their choice. Frontman and manager Charlie Fehrenbacher said Teenage Chopshop launched its Kickstarter campaign Sept. 27, including a brief promotional video that explains what the band will do with its funds and how it plans to give back to its fans and investors. I had all of these songs written and knew I wanted to put out a new album, Fehrenbacher said. It was becoming crystal clear how it was going to turn out and what the songs were going to be like. It was at that point that I said this would be really good for a Kickstarter project. According to Kickstarter policy, if the band does not reach its $3,200 goal, it must forfeit all accumulated funds. The money will buy microphones, editing equipment, record-pressing materials, T-shirts and posters, Fehrenbacher said. While the band members recognize they might not reach their goal, Fehrenbacher said they will still produce and release their album. According to www.kickstarter.com, more than $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding over 30,000 creative projects. Fehrenbacher and keyboardist/vocalist Ashley Phillips founded the band in 2011. Guitarist Tanner Yea, a 20-year-old UF journalism junior; drummer Aidan Murphy, a 20-year-old UF physics junior; and bassist Clinton Martz, a 19-year-old Gainesville resident, were recruited through a Craigslist post. Its really about getting our name out there and giving people a taste of what we do, Fehrenbacher said. And the fact that were doing every single thing we do at home by hand we dont want to rely on a record company, or a producer, or an image consultant or a manager. As far as Im concerned, were smart enough and talented enough that we can do all of that stuff on our own. Brandon Nall is an artist and graphic designer who provided the artwork for the bands website. Nall, 21, who attends the University of North Flor ida in Jacksonville, went to high school and played in a band with Yea previously. A community that can support its artists is very Nall said. If there are people that enjoy what you have to give, thats awesome. Fehrenbacher said Kickstarter is a great way to let the community get involved in the music. I read articles from music bloggers saying theyre worried that the independent music scene is going to fail over time, Fehrenbacher said. Whats going to keep the music scene alive are the people still out there that care enough to work hard. The band will host a CD release show for Evil Twin Dec. 8 at The Atlantic. As of Wednesday night, Teenage Chopshop accumulated $600 and 14 backers on their Kickstarter to the bands campaign, visit www.teenagechopshop.com.Local band asks Web to fund album DEVON ABELMANForget spending way too much money on way too little fabric for a sexy-something Halloween costume.

If you meet someone dressed as a zombie, he or she is probably lacking brains or creativity lets face it, zombie costumes are over. Its beaten to death, everybody. We get it.

Shes probably high maintenance. Or he. Shout out to my men who love men and my ladies who love ladies. Dont think this warning is heteronormative; were all in danger of a bad Halloween date.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 13 This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 21-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Dear Mediocre Advice, Whenever I have a wild night, I end the evening with a drunken text. Usually, I am reminded of my decision in the morning when I wake up in that persons bed. But on unsuccessful nights, all Im left with are embarrassing text messages. Is being a promiscuous drunk something I need to apologize for the next day if Im rejected? Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, Why do some women say they need an emotional connection to give a man a blow job and would instead be more willing to have sex (penetration)? If sexy time is sexy time, then why would certain activities be off the table? (I did the sexy time thing on purpose, because I know you dont like it.) Dear Questionable Person, Sexy time makes you sound like you cant speak proper English or you have suffered from a severe blow to the head no pun intended. Certain activities are off the table, because one of the people involved in this dirty courtship is not comfortable. BJs are more personal than sexual intercourse. Its putting someones junk in your mouth and hoping that when you recite the alphabet in your head, you only need to make it to Z once. Also, that person is counting on the others hygiene to be impeccable, which is a giant leap of faith. For something that personal, energy-consuming and literally in-your-face, the giver has to really like the receiver to volunteer to give a BJ. This is not the case in most sexual encounters. Dear Friend, There is nothing wrong with buying condoms. In fact, cashiers should thank the person buying condoms, because that person is a responsible individual. The last time I bought some, the nice Indian man at Walgreens smiled at me. Im sure it was for different reasons, but someone who wont buy condoms but will still participate in using them. Its common courtesy to at least offer to buy them. Your boyfriend needs to grow up, because sex isnt something to be ashamed of, and both parties should always be prepared. Ask him if hed rather be the guy buying condoms or diapers. Dear Mediocre Advice, My friend wants to get a neck tattoo. How can I persuade her to not do that? Dear Friend, hired with a tattoo in such a noticeable place. Try somewhere that is easier to cover up, like behind the ear or the upper back. Maybe your friend can bring back tramp stamps instead. Something small on the back of the neck is alright, too, but whatever it is will still make her holidays. Does she want her mother to drink a little more on Thanksgiving because she feels like she has failed her? Tell her to prepare and a mom who will rue the day she ever let her leave for college. Dear Friend, Dont apologize! Stand by those weird drunken texts you send. Excessive drinking leads to telling the truth, which you send via text. So why would you want to apologize for that? Unless you were insulting your best friend or someone you have feelings for, dont worry about it. Drunken texts are the greeting cards of 2012. Yours says, Dear Mediocre Advice, My boyfriend is too shy to buy condoms, so I do it. I dont mind, but it would be nice if he at least offered. What should I do or say so he will man up?
