    It's true though. She kinda had no reason to call elections 3(!) years early...she apparently may have wanted an iron clad mandate to ball break the EU in the upcoming Brexit negotiations...but the freshness of 3 recent terror attacks may have made her stance on national security a factor in the elections...

    No, she looked like she was in the 18-24 bracket, in a two piece bikini by a pool sunning herself. So you know using the brain is optional. My favorite line of the exchange is where she says: "why are you looking at me like I'm stupid?"

    Sounds she might advocate for classes by the water...maybe a more relaxed dress code?

    Any vice can do that to you, not just phones...
    That's a fair point but as someone who can become easily addicted to something, I don't know. This doesn't happen with my coworker who is really into makeup. That is her vice.

    I'm very hot and cold about being into things I could never start smoking because it would be too easy for me to get addicted to it.

    You may be surprised at how ingrained vices can take many different shapes and forms...

    Definitely don't start smoking. Been doing it for about 40 years and it's become a physical dependency. Quitting the bottle was a piece of cake and I've been sober for over 20 years. Outside of some grass in high school, I've never done any drugs so it's funny how addictions can run sometimes.

    Hunting for that perfect phone is a harmless hobby, all things considered.

    I know of an old story where a priest who was a heavy smoker and heavy drinker was confronted by his family in his office one day. His wife said: "we will tolerate you only having ONE vice...you must choose between drinking or smoking. You have five minutes to decide."

    So they stepped outside his office and five minutes later, they piled back in to hear his answer. As they filed in, he took one final look between his cigarettes and his flask.

    His wife: "Did you decide?"

    The priest nodded...and handed over the flask.

    That was scarily easy. I sometimes read too much into things and can miss the obvious. This wasn't one of those times.

    She gambled and lost. That little thing called terrorist attacks blew up her plans...
    I don't think the attacks had much to do with this. Usually with attacks people are more inclined to vote conservative.

    I think the fact that young people got out and voted was the difference.

    They're still waiting for official figures but there's a sense that it was young people who changed things. The Labour party targeted their manifesto at young and old alike and the conservatives were doing more austerity.

    The Tories still won but this damaged them. There's a possibility that either May goes or another election is called.

    The EU is frustrated to say the least. As you pointed out. There was no need to call this election. It was pure ego in my view. They utterly failed.

    It would appear that this election and Obama's prior two highlight the importance of the youth vote and how dismissive the old guard was of it - and it kicked them in the groin.

    Truth be told, UK shouldn't have left the EU...and now that they have, I don't blame the EU for wanting to get them out the door. I know the US and the UK are allies, but it looks like the inconsistencies of the Trump administration seeped into May's stewardship...

    Dang that sounds hard. Congrats on being sober for so long!

    Yeah you're right. It's harmful to my wallet though Me and my coworker occasionally talk about our "vices" and she has decided that mine is more expensive, which is true. I don't want to think about how I could have had enough for a security deposit with how much this has all been.

    I'm just saying but it's cool since I have arrived now. Had an interesting conversation with my friend yesterday who is a Apple fan. He was really curious about the battery case since he's never seen one in real life. He was shocked to hear me say that I don't want a iPhone 8. Just a refreshed SE.

    There's no such thing as one vice being more expensive than another. Cigarettes are cheap compared to a bottle of Bourbon or Brandy, but do more expensive damage along the way. You only get to go once on this merry-go-round, you gotta be you. When you settle for second best you're shortchanging yourself. There's always other apartments available, you'll get yours.

    I'm going to keep that in mind, thanks.

    You're so right about the settling point. I'm sure you're right but finding the balance of what I can afford and how far I want to be and how safe is hard.
