That reminds me of what I think of 40 year old men who hunt down 20 year olds.

If the 20 year olds were hunting the 40 year old man (and not for money), what would you think then?

Should he say 'sorry, you're too young, kthxbye' to someone who could star in a Paco Rabanne commercial?

I would think that it's weird and that the 20 year old has some issues.

Also, yes. Having spent a good deal of time working with young adults for the past few years has enlightened me as to how undeveloped/immature they tend to be. Comprehending a relationship with a 20 year old even as I am a 30 year old man makes me feel like I'd be taking advantage of them. They're quite vulnerable at that age emotionally imo.

With that being said I don't think anyone should care or regulate it. I know plenty of young men who find cougs who are more than happy to pamper them. I just know what I'd say about it to someone I mentor at that age group.

Agreed. Fortunately we're talking mid twenties. And definitely not immature or vulnerable.

But, uh, let's stop derailing the thread! Move along, nothing to see here.  :-X

That is all.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

That feeling when both of your picks are going to get knocked out of the NFL playoffs.  :'(
Just like the white winged dove,

It was low 50s Thursday and Friday.

Today it is 5.

Second floor office. If its ABOVE 30, we can turn on the A/C unit. If not, we are heated by THE ONES WHO WORK BELOW and our office reaches about 82 all day.

The Saints game was the worst. I felt depressed afterwards.

I'm a die hard Steelers fan. I didn't see the other all the way through. 

It's really heartbreaking to get knocked out that early.  I jinxed that shit by wearing an away jersey.   :'(

Dealing with taxes.

The IRS gets copies of all your various tax forms and they plug it into their computers and know what to expect when you file your taxes.  I KNOW this is true because, for reasons I'm actually still not clear on, last year they sent me a letter saying I (Turbotax?) made a mistake in your taxes and owe $45 more.

So like, why can't they calculate all the things and send me a bill?  Maybe show the math so I can look it over and be like "Yeah, seems right." and cut them a check or accept refund.  If I disagree with the math, THEN I can go do my taxes the old fashioned way and see how it shakes out.

Seems like that would be a tax reform idea that would ACTUALLY save an enormous amount of time/stress for the American people and save a ton on IRS bureaucracy as well.

What you propose is almost exactly what is done in Japan. Read about it here to learn why we don't have that system in the US.
