    How do you split the housework in your home? ?

    My husband and I both work full time jobs. He works about 50 hours a week, I work around 45 hours a week. We have 1 child and 3 dogs. Our home isn’t big, but we have 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a giant kitchen that all take a lot of upkeep to clean. My standards for a clean house are pretty high. I make sure the floors get swept and mopped at least once a week, and I deep clean the bathroom AT LEAST twice a week. I also handle the bill paying, the grocery shopping, and about 70% of the cooking. 

    My husband works overnights & takes care of things like the garage, the mowing (3 months of the year) and the vehicle maintenance, and he always takes out the trash, but it still doesn’t feel like we are splitting the work evenly, as those things don’t require weekly upkeep. I never wake him before noon on his days off (per our agreement) and usually by the time I DO wake him up, the housework is finished. 

    Today I wrote some things down on the counter that still needed to get done, I’ve had a busy morning. I had a list, and I wrote him a small list too - take out the trash, and unload/reload the dishwasher. He is now upset with me because I wrote him a list. 

    Was this unreasonable? 

    How do you split the housework in an otherwise 50/50 working household?

    Say you're 17 and you get 5k cash what happens?

    This is hypothetical I was just curious, so say like you get 5k like from a duffel bag on a subway or say illegally. What would happen. Your bank account would be under your parent's name. And it would be suspicious to your bank if you suddenly deposited 5grand in your bank account.

    Iran just announced that it had enriched uranium to 50%. Under the agreement they were not to go over 5%. What is the only use for 50% ?

    enriched uranium? Turning it into 90% enriched and 90% is what you need for a bomb.

    Biden is going to get a LOT of innocent civilians KILLED in the name of political correctness and being modern and woke and all that bullshit. It's a powder keg right now and with Biden steering this ship it's only a matter of time before we watch Armageddon happen before our eyes.

    Why are 90% of woman super fat?

    Favourite answer:

    Firstly, in the UK, more men are 'super fat' than men. And, in the USA there isn't much difference between the sexes.

    So your question should be - why are 90% of people super fat.

    And the answer to that is bad diet, too much fast food, too little exercise. On top of that, it's deemed to be 'acceptable' at any weight. People aren't called fat any more, they are plus size or curvy.... There is a US TV reality show where the main stars are two grossly obese sisters and so on.....

    How can I let my mom monitor my bank account without letting her touch my money?

    My mother wants to monitor my bank account but I don't want her touching my money. I was told by my bank that for that option, I need a lawyer to give her a "power of attorney" so that I can have control over what she can and cannot do on my bank account. 

    Can I do this without her knowing?

    How can I earn money quickly from home?

    One of the most common questions but still an important one. I want to know what methods are actually viable and what is petty cash. I can't have a job due to disabilities and I'll leave it at that. The hard part is that I don't mean a couple hundred bucks after a few days of taking mind-numbing surveys. I need a source of income that is at least somewhat reliable and ideally steady. Any help is appreciated.

    Why do women over the age of 30 start wanting to know how much money you make as a man?

    I was single in my 20's and single in my 30's and now single in my 40's and the mindsets of women change drastically. In my 20's women just wanted to meet a guy who they got along with and had good chemistry with and wanted to enjoy life. Then at 30, it all changed, and women started asking me my financial situation almost immediately. Women at 20 ask, "oh let's see more pictures of you :)" or "oh what do you like to do for fun", and women at 30, the first thing they ask on online dating sites is, "oh what do you do for a living". I just stop responding if they ask me what I do for a living. I've never once asked a woman what she does for a living. I don't even care, if she's happy with her job and not in debt, I don't care. I only care if she's a good person. Yet that's all 90% of women ask me about on the first date is they grill me on how much money i make, what car I drive, etc etc

    There’s something she never did?!?

    in high school some stuff happened. There was this girl and I’m sure she had a crush on me. She would always stare at me and got really nervous then I came around. I am also a girl. We went to a really conservative school but she made it very obvious that she liked me. Her family is very religious. The way she stared at me was insane and she would try to talk to me and get close to me for stupid reasons. One time she saw me walking and went the other way. A lot of stuff happened. I secretly liked her but never did or said anything. She left the school and I graduated and it was too late. I have a boyfriend now and I really do like him. However I still think about her and stalk her page. I Imagine what my life would be like if we got together. She is in college now and when I look on her page she’s made a lot of new friends and isn’t as tomboyish as she used to be. I’m almost 100% sure she had feelings for me. I always think about having sex and doing stuff with her and I can’t control it. My sister is graduating next month so I am hoping maybe she will be there but I don’t think so. I’ve been thinking about her night and day. I know she liked me and kind of feel sad because I wonder why she never added me. It’s been like 3 years but how come she never added me in high school? She would always ask people who I was
