He fell into her eyes like a meteorite. Or maybe that guy who jumped out of a balloon in the upper atmosphere.

Yes, while you're at it, could you please provide time and dates for all your unsavory conduct. With photo ID.

He's hoping she was looking because she liked him, not because he was on a cringe-moment date.

Wanted: female best friend, must be prompt.

Wanted: female dart thrower, must be able to commit.

How long can one guy survive on Max London's, coffee, and free internet?

The good news: your lost iPad still turns on. The bad news: people have been driving over it in the roundabout in Slingerlands.

And apparently the lost pet fox in Troy is named "Cricket."

I feel that when people don't confront inappropriate behavior it sends a signal that it is tolerated. I often speak up in situations like these, depending on my reading of the situation. If we consider ourselves part of a community we all have a role to play in signaling what is and isn't appropriate behavior.
