This is what it means to be human.
 
"'Who knew there’d come a time when people didn’t want to bury their children?' says Ruth Cocker Burks"...
Meet the Woman Who Cared for Hundreds of Abandoned Gay Men Dying of AIDS
"'I called her back,' Burks said. 'I said, "If you hang up on me again, I will put your son’s obituary in your hometown newspaper and I will list his cause of death." Then I had her attention.'"

And, get this, she already owned a cemetery.

Are cheesesteaks considered a sub-class of hoagies, or are they deemed to be completely separate?

For the life of me, I can't think why women and girls might be reluctant to consider a career in science.

(The comments, the horrible comments.)
 
Sophie, one of our Grand Prize winners from 2014, has this one piece of advice: "If you're passionate about your idea and not afraid to work hard then there's no reason not to give it a try. I'm so thankful to be part of the GSF community that inspires me every single day."

If what you're saying would make you uncomfortable to hear from a gay man who would be able to overpower you easily, then maybe you shouldn't say it to a woman. It isn't a compliment, and it isn't harmless. It's creepy, unsolicited and uncomfortable.

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!
