Lawyers are not very expensive*, and the government frowns upon legal disputes used to evade taxes. My advice is to pay for a lawyer, it's not very expensive, maybe a couple hundred bucks to discuss your options over a quick 30 minute meeting.

*There's been a glut of lawyers graduating from law schools, a lawyer bubble so to speak. Lawyers are dirt cheap now.

Depends what you consider cheap, I guess. Several people in my family are lawyers, including my father, so I'm well aware of typical costs. My father being a lawyer, I'm also lucky enough that I'd be able to afford the few hundred dollar an hour rates, but I'm also well aware that many aren't.

Getting a lawyer to sit down over 30 minutes at a couple hundred dollars/hr is well worth the $100 to $200 spent over discussions of a house ($50000 - $300,000) or a legal case over said house (thousands of dollars and manhours.) Do it, or get a group therapist. Most families work out something if they are ok with handshake deals, but if you aren't...Get a lawyer and work out something simple. Like a 30 year lease with set rates and stipulations. The guy is wealthy enough to discuss a house, but poor(or better yet smart ) enough that they don't have 2 houses. They can spare the couple hundred bucks to resolve this issue.

Make sure it's diluted enough to not burn holes in stuff: pour a few glugs of bleach into a bucket, fill bucket with water, pour water all over items while they are in the washer, then wash as normal. If it almost works, do it again and get things more evenly wet with the bleach mixture.

At least, that's how I do it. I get mediocre results, just saying.

It worked. The wash instructions are faded, but the rest of the shirt is back to white.

Doing a websearch for legal advice or anything similar just gives me a bunch of shady-looking websites. The question I have is complicated and specific, but the answer is probably simple to someone who knows the rules and stuff.

Here's my question in case anybody is wondering or in case anybody here can answer it.
Party A owns a house, and has lived in it for many years. Party A is nearing the end of her life, and wants to transfer ownership of her home and real estate to her daughter, Party B.

Once Party B has ownership of the home, can Party B evict Party A, or accuse Party A of trespassing?

I can imagine that Party A could perhaps make some sort of contract that Party B must agree to, saying Party B has ownership of the house and real estate but must allow Party A to reside there in perpetuity (until death). Is this necessary?

I also imagine that the answer to this might vary from state to state (United States).


IANAL, but I do work in a quasi-legal profession regarding real estate (Professional Land Surveyor).

In general, the term you are looking for is a 'life estate'. It is a grant of right of use and possession until death by Party A, while Party B is the owner of said property. They are generally granted as a condition of transfer of ownership in the deed.

I was going to post how that's a really mundane example of google "understanding" your phrase, but it turns out the rivaling search engines start out with wikipedia pages about Edison or even funkier stuff. (of course they'll name Tesla within 5 results, but it's still Edison on top)
Which begs the question: are the other search engines bad at semantic searching by design, or does google have such an edge because they have the most people asking those questions and bumping the right result?

I was listening to NPR in the car today and they had a story about elephants. Apparently some study found that the population of elephants in Africa had declined by a third over the past decade, due mainly to poaching.

The report went on to say: "According to so-and-so, an expert from the such-and-such institute, if these trends continue then half of the remaining elephants may be killed within the next ten years."

I didn't catch the source's name or credentials, but they sounded much more highfalutin than "Little Billy, an 'A' student in Mrs. Maple's fifth-grade arithmetic class." As far as I could tell the reporter was totally innumerate, unaware that redundant information was being reported and completely dependent on the expert to say what it meant.

The really sad thing is, my car's radio is tuned to NPR because that's the best radio channel available. (Well, the other sad thing is that we're running out of elephants, but I was too distracted by the reporter's arithmetical obliviousness to worry very much about pachydermic endangerment.)

An alternative explanation is that the reporter totally knew what he or she was saying, but by rephrasing it in this manner it gives more emphasis to the severity of the problem, and by quoting an expert, gives it more weight.

"The last decade" is far away, but "the next ten years" is tomorrow. And "half" has more impact than "one third", even if in their respective contexts they represent the same number of elephants.

I got a kick out of this line in a paper I'm skimming:
This is an
unexpected impact of risk communication: as television reports aimed to highlight the
competency and commitment of industrial farmers, Vietnamese urban consumers, reflecting
French consumers during the BSE crisis [21], discovered an unknown universe where man
seemed to be responsible for the large-scale spread of the disease.

Different paper's abstract.

Its challenge rating is OVER 9,000.

According to that page, combining the Daggerfall spellmaker (damage: 100 + 100-100 per 1 level) with Asheron's Call's 275 level cap wouldn't create a mage capable of one-hitting a planet but would ... er ... well, I suppose a small moon would be within such a spell's capabilities, so there's your new way to destroy the (Star Wars) Death Star: board it, hit it with that spell and teleport to a planet before its remains finish decompressing.

What do people actually do about crushes?

I mean in order to avoid obsessing and the related unhealthy stuff?
Or do they do that stuff because they gave up the fight?
Is it weird to crush on someone based solely on perceived personality and voice?
And I really need to get over another person too. You know, full closure or something.
I feel broken. I hardly am in a situation to have a relationship of any kind. Even my good friendships are suffering.

I generally tell my crush about it and get told "no" or some equivalent. I then avoid my crush for a while while I drag myself through a pit of despair and after a varying amount of time I recover and get on with my life.
I'm not saying that's the best course of action, but it's the best I've been able to manage

I feel that obsessing is something people do when they should have either made a move to gauge interest or should have given up the fight, but haven't yet.
Is it weird to crush on someone based solely on perceived personality and voice?
IMHO no. AFAIK a crush is an hormonal thing and not controllable. Your hormones don't wait for you to get all data before messing with you.

Hearts don't always make sense. It sucks, but there isn't much to do about it. Talking about it with a good friend seems to help lots of people.

That was weird. Walking to a bus stop, hear my name called. Turns out it was a friend yelling from a taxi. Taxi stops. Him: "Hey. You going to [thing I'm going to]?" "Hey. Yeah." "Cool, see you there." Taxi drives off. Like, I kinda expected him to either not have stopped or to have offered me a ride?

Maybe it was the taxi driver's decision, not his.
Did you see him there? Did you ask him about it? Enquiring minds want to know!

The taxi appeared to have a seat free. I did see him there. I didn't ask him about it since I just got a bus as planned and it wasn't a big deal. Entirely possible that the driver just decided to drive off, but I guess we'll never know.

I often choose to post in webforums (including but not limited to this one) but after typing my post, I change my mind and don't actually post it. Sometimes I actually spend several minutes rewording the post and carefully proofreading it beforehand. Then I eventually decide that it's not worth it and just cancel. I guess mostly the reason why I do this is because I feel that what I have to say isn't going to benefit anyone in much of any way, and they'd be better off not wasting their time reading it.

Usually when I open up the response page, I do commit to writing and submitting a message. I rarely abort a post once I start typing (looking at my post count, I guess less than 1%). However, the quality, length*, number of redactions and whatnot (in short: the effort spent) heavily depend upon the context, and are also influenced by my mood (which is, technically, also context). [edit]and the number of ninjas[/edit]

This post is part of the 99%.

Take the average of twitter, instagram and 4chan, I guess. (it's like facebook, but the forumites who actually do have facebook are likely in bubbles of self-moderating people)

*hmm, I should make a little scraper that finds the length distribution of my (recent) posts. I gather it's gone downhill and that's not necessarily a neutral thing.

A significant number of my aborted posts are when I'm replying to a thread to add extra detail or context, or clarify something someone else already posted... and then I read it back when I'm done and I realise I haven't actually added anything, everything I've said is already covered in the previous post, my rewording isn't actually any clearer... all I'd be doing is taking up space.

Basically what I'm saying is in no-self-moderation world I'd be a massive mansplainer.

Some of the juice freezes onto the ice cream so it's like a bathtime mango ice cream float, but with extra cardamom nom nom.
