Mediocre tool, stupid headline.

Agreed again. Shouldn't mobile-optimized pages be under m.boston.com instead of www? Or could we get a portal to the desktop-optimized page?

Happy if as MisterBeasley said the technical issues go away, but I don't like it. As a newspaper page I'm going to pick and choose. That's easier when I've got it laid out by department, instead of an more »

Remind me again why it's ridiculous for congregants to want to be armed in a house of worship?

Calling it a Winter Break doesn't make it not a Christmas. I'm Jewish but I'm not offended, it's a reasonable accommodation to the vast majority to take that well-needed break around Christmas. I am o more »

Please explain to the ignorant, why is loss amazingly better than win?

Run, don't walk! Or at least take a look at a stepparent forum like steptalk DOT org. Maybe it's a little less bad if you never wanted kids, but there isn't much that's harder than being a childless more »

Not so according to the article. About 6 years ago CBS Monday night was the only TV I watched regularly. Then things got even busier (and what free time I have I spend on social media), and I gave tha more »

I always wear a wedding ring when I'm married. I figure it isn't fair to the ladies, who would be getting their hopes up thinking I'm still available. I used a Claddagh ring when I was engaged, but th more »

Not to downplay this tragedy, but the reporting has me scratching my head. "Some of the 90 missing may never be found, remaining entombed forever inside a mountain of mud believed to have claimed more more »

Old-HossRadbourn, correct about the question, but not about the misleading headline.

Besides those who void where prohibited, there are also people caught in a Romeo-and-Juliet situation (one was 17 while the other was 16, or 18 and 17) some of whom subsequently married each other. Ev more »

Agreed @frankly1 (now that I've seen the rant -- I don't do videos at work). She is also completely avoiding or misrepresenting the nature of the decimal representation. It's not that it has an infini more »

@antiseptic, it's not that math exists only inside our minds, but that it exists outside the Universe. (I have an atheist friend who says the Universe is a necessary consequence of math, if I underst more »

That's intentional. The more easy cases they can collect, the more they can point to their heavy caseload without risking having to explain a dead child on their watch.

Pi and e (and 0 and 1 and i [*]) exist without people, as pure numbers. Not so sure c has the same purity as a number, because it involves units (meters, etc.) It exists and is constant, and every sys more »

12 months to the solar year, 30 +/- days to the month isn't sexagesimal.
Posted 03/14/2014 08:04:07 EDT
Pi is transcendental. Celebrating its Base-10 representation on a Base-12/Base-30 system is silly.

My kids were in the system. Not because I was a deadbeat. Not because I was abusing or neglecting them. Simply because a caseworker thought they could do a better job than I could do. 8 months in pro more »

Yes, I would use a discount attorney, and have price-shopped. Nothing wrong with asking "How much for a simple will?" or "How much to represent me at a closing?" Similarly I've price-shopped doctors, more »

After all this coverage, reasonable people should understand that if you're wearing a skirt and sitting across from someone on the T, whatever is covered by nothing but the skirt is publicly visible. more »

Suppose you have a mostly-vacant house inside 128 worth $300k +/- as-is, with taxes, insurance, enough oil that the pipes don't freeze, etc. running $5k/year, no mortgage. (Also family timing such tha more »

Is it the job of the real estate agent to safeguard against bungled real estate deals? I thought that was the job of the lawyer (and strategically the financial advisor), with the agent merely bringin more »

This is a fitting end for the chain that killed local stationery stores.
