    My parents never ever go into my room. It's almost like having an apartment, only I can get yelled at for a lot more stuff.

    My parents and I have this weird don't ask don't tell relationship where we just don't talk about my incredible menagerie of vices and faults. They also never send me e-mails except for once in a blue moon where my dad finds something from like four years ago on the internet and thinks it's hilarious.

    Other then michael moore being a fat jerk, what exactly are your problems with his politics

    or are you just dumb

    Lately it's just been rants about how the Big Three need saving justified with nothing but broken window fallacy and "well, Wall Street got one."

    Basically I agree with him about gun control and healthcare and that's about it. (Though I wish he would be less of a fat jerk about those issues, because that makes me a fat jerk by association. I work for my svelte figure, thank you)

    so when I lived at home my mom would pop into my room, talk to me, leave, pop back in, be like "oh i forgot that..." and say something else, maybe doing this three or four times. it was annoying, but whatever, she's scatter-brained, it's fine.

    when I started leaving the house to hang out with my friends or living with my dad or whatever the fuck, she started doing the same thing with calls. she would call me, we'd talk for ten minutes, she would call me back and be like "OH I FORGOT THAT..." It only took twenty or twenty-five times of her doing this for me to get pretty annoyed, and now if she calls back within ten minutes of us hanging up, whatever, she can leave a message, she just has information for me anyway.

    now that I'm at college she e-mails me big long e-mails, then e-mails me three minutes later with the tagline "One more thing...", even doing this two or three times. Sometimes she e-mails me something that ends with "I'm going to look up bus prices and times" and e-mails back five minutes later saying "ok so the bus leaves now and now and costs this much." This doesn't happen once in a while. This happens ALWAYS.

    This is THE MOST FUCKING ANNOYING THING to me. I come home to five or six e-mails. This isn't like leaving the room and realizing you forgot to bring something up - it's fucking TEXT, sent over the internet. You can consolidate your thoughts before you send me an e-mail. If once in a while you go "oh I left something out" that's fine, but I feel like my mom e-mails me every time she thinks of something instead of going "hey maybe I'll just e-mail him tonight with everything I think of between now and then" or "hey I need to remind my son of something why don't I write a reminder or start a list or something"

    I dunno. It bugs me.

    My parents and relatives are really, really good at not forwarding spam.

    However I stopped e-mailing my mother for a while after she said some silly things.

    I do get forwarded the weirdest text messages from my dad though

    such as this gem from yesterday

    "Up on the rooftop, click click click
    Santa fell down and broke his dick!
    Cracked his nuts on a 2x4
    that's why Santa don't cum no more!

    it can infect a cell, rewrite its genome and replicate along with it; it does not simply mutate into a bacteria on it's own accord

    Shank or Kusu your mother sounds like a very sweet person. You should be happy that she's always thinking about you.

    My mom sends me e-mails to see if I am eating well, it's always her biggest concern because she is not there to stuff me full of food.
    She used to forward me junk mail with dumb jokes and inspirational messages, but then I told her to stop it, and she did.

    Over the election season, my mom sent me jokes about Palin and gag pictures which I'd seen of the D&D politics thread weeks ago. I have yet to remind her of how hostile she was to me telling her the latest jokes about Clinton during the primaries (I supported Obama).

    Seems kind of redundant, what with tax forms and all.

    While not as fine grained as a census it seems like it'd be a fuckton easier and more cost effective to digitize tax records and process it that way.

    Probably be just as accurate because people will almost always fill out their tax returns for the $$rebate. As opposed to the people who get the census form and are like "oops burned that by accident."

    Well, it is half-way there...sort of. Tax records are used in quite a few estimation processes.

    All you can really gain from IRS records are Age, Sex, Income, dependents, address. This could provide a very rough proxy of the tax paying population by age/sex - perhaps enough to partially allocate governmental seats (which is the consitutional reason for the census) but in no way quite as representative of the entire U.S.

    However, this is rather scant information for decisions based upon the whole breadth of information collected by the Census Bureau (of which, there are a lot). The overall story is that the census does a lot of good, much more than most percieve.

    Yep, that is used as well - particuarly for tracking elderly populations which are a bit more difficult to measure via traditional means.

    It may not seem like it - but every single question the Census Bureau collects must have a reason germane to the operation of the government. Nothing is superflous. I could go on and on about just how technical, difficult, and important it is to collect all that information, but that would be one hell of a derail (moreso, anyway). I'll just say of all the government agencies out there, the Census Bureau is probably one of the most benign and operated with an eye for integrity and (gasp!) science. It is not quite a "big brother" situation that many fear.

    Whooops wrong address, sent to a customer, a 65 year old woman who's sweet as apple pie.

    He went OH NO OH NO OH NO OH NO for a couple minutes then called her to explain.
