LPT: Don’t throw away a blanket that’s just a bit worn out or stained. Instead, donate it to your local animal shelter. For many homeless pets, a soft place to sleep is their greatest solace.

I can’t believe this post has gotten so much attention. Thank you all so much! This is surreal and also gratifying. It makes me happy to know that this tip is getting out there, along with several others that I’ve seen mentioned in the comments.

A lot of you have brought up homeless people, and I agree that their lives matter too. The main reasons I didn’t mention them in the post title are because this is about animals, and also about blankets that most people would consider unappealing or even unusable. If your unwanted blanket is still in decent condition, then by all means donate it to a homeless person or shelter.

Some of you have mentioned the fact that many animal shelters have an overload of donations or for a number of other reasons aren’t accepting them. So yes, it’s always a good idea to call ahead.

Veterinary clinics are a good place to donate to as well, and as mentioned, towels and sheets are also a good thing to keep in mind.

One more thing I’d like to say: I am so humbled by your generosity with awards for this post, but I implore you to give your money away elsewhere. Please donate it to homeless or animal shelters or to other reputable charities. They need it more than I do.

AITA for not returning my friend's blanket that I spent hours fixing up?

My friend was going to toss out an old knitted blanket she had. I noticed it next to her garbage piled by the door and asked why she was tossing it. She said that it was excessively pilled, it looked ugly, and she didn't want it anymore. I told her she could borrow my tools and clean the blanket up in a few hours. She said she had plenty of other blankets and didn't need to do that, so she was getting rid of it. I asked if I could have it and she shrugged and said sure.

I took it home and cleaned it up over a couple sessions - I have a shaver and de-piller. It took me about 3-4 hours to do it perfectly - I detailed it pretty extensively. When I was finished, it looked almost brand new. I liked it so much I draped it over the back of my sofa.

My friend came to visit this week and she noticed the blanket on my sofa. She gasped when she saw it and confirmed it was her old blanket. She seemed shocked at how good it looked. She commented that she wouldn't have given it to me if she knew it could be cleaned up that well, and would I consider giving it back? I politely refused because I had spent so long cleaning it up. She said that was rude of me.

I would have returned it if it was handmade (I asked if it was handmade when she asked me to return it), but this is store-bought and has no sentimental value. I don't think she should get the multiple hours I spent cleaning it up for nothing when she could have done it herself - and I even TOLD her she could do it and offered to lend her my tools! My view is that would be in a landfill right now if I hadn't fixed it up!

She's now being short and snippy with me.

Updates: Wow, thanks all for your comments. Really appreciate you all.

Blanket Pics - Sorry, I'm not posting a picture of the blanket. Last thing I need is someone I know recognizing it and somehow drama resulting. I'm a low-key lady and like to keep things chill. But if you ever see a nice looking blanket draped over the back of a couch... COULD be mine.

It would be nice to return it - I agree, it would be really nice if I gave it back to her after fixing it up as a gift, but that was never my intention. Why make a gift to my friend out of something she valued so little she was throwing it away? I also don't feel I owe her this because I would have been totally willing to lend her my tools to do it herself and even help her with it and she declined and wa

The NY AG just issued a blanket warning against investing in Cryptocurrencies, without any basis. She is just as guilty as Elon Musk for market manipulation

Its just not the place for NY AG's to issue a "warning" against an entire asset class that many institutions are investing in today and giants like Fidelity call digital gold and recommend their investors to have a position along with debt component of their portfolio.

Whats worse, the NY State already issues BitLicense, and NY AG's statement that investing in cryptocurrencies is dangerous contradicts the very purpose why BitLicense is issued in the first place.

Meanwhile the State operates its own lottery ticket scheme: https://nylottery.ny.gov

NY AG is not a licensed financial advisor to even issue such statements. Absolutely reprehensible action by self proclaimed "saviour of investors". Multiple banks in her jurisdiction have been found to have laundered money for drug cartels and terrorists. As someone so obsessed with protecting investors, she seems rather not bothered with whats going on with these banks that launder cartel money.

You spend 2.5 years and millions of dollars investigating Tether, for a fucking slap on the wrist fine that concluded with Tether not even having to admit they did anything wrong.

Blanket Student Loan Forgiveness is Populism for the Middle Class, Change My Mind

Let's get this out of the way first: Most people with student loan debt are better off than people without a college education. "About half of young college graduates with student loans (52%) live in families earning at least $75,000, compared with 18% of those without a bachelor’s degree." And about half of all outstanding student loan debt was used to pay for graduate school.

Now let's discuss two of the arguments for student loan forgiveness I've seen on this sub.

The #NotAllGrads Argument

"Yes, most college grads are better off, but not all of them. Some make very little or no money at all." There are at least three good responses to this:

  1. There are already income based repayment programs in place that tie a person's payments to their income or lack thereof. As a student loan scholar from the left-leaning Urban Institute said at a forum, we already have β€œa system that says, β€˜If you cannot afford your loan payments, we will forgive them.” Whether we should have a blanket loan forgiveness program β€œthat says, β€˜Let’s also forgive the loan payments even if you can afford them’ is another question.”
  2. Just because someone isn't earning much today doesn't mean they won't earn enough to pay back their student loans in the future. People tend to make more money as they get older. As an anecdote, my first job out of school paid about $35k. Three years later, I made six figures.
  3. If you're worried about helping poor people, guess what? General programs directed at all low income earners would benefit the relatively few people who went to college and aren't making much money and poor people who didn't go to college. We should do that kind of policy instead.

We Should Make College More Affordable

We should. Forgiving the student student loan debts of people who already went to college isn't going to make college more affordable. To do that, we need to tackle the tuition issue.

A variation on this is "if you want law students with elite degrees to be able to be public defenders, civil rights lawyers, and other more progressive jobs at a higher rate, something has to be done about the debt." As I responded to that comment, we did exactly that. It's called Public Service Loan

Nate Duncan throws a wet blanket on Anthony Edwards' monster dunk, gets Dunc'd On in the replies.

Last night, analyst Nate Duncan went viral on NBA Twitter by making a backhanded compliment on Anthony Edwards' baptism of Yuta Watanabe:

"Anthony Edwards all over Twitter tonight with the dunk of the year. He also has 7 points on 3/14 shooting, 0/7 on 3s."

NBA fans soon called him out for his quick dismissal of the highlight, and Nate doubled down:

>"Jeez he's a rookie leave the kid alone. How come you didn't tweet out his 28, 7 and 5 game the other night? Man I hate Twitter sometimes"

>Nate: "maybe you should change who you follow if you're going to get so upset about tweeting a stat line or wonder why someone you follow doesn't tweet about every single performance in the NBA. Might be better for your mental health."

...

>"Let people enjoy a great highlight"

>Nate: "did you enjoy the dunk less because of my tweet? Of course you didn't. And nobody else did either.

...

>Nate RT: "Edwards: 'I don't care about the dunk. I couldn't make shots.'"

As an analyst, Nate insists on giving as much of a complete picture each time, bad and good. NBA Twitter has deemed Nate the "fun police" and the tweet + his responses in poor taste. Nate says that he's not being a hater and just stating facts, and it's only being blown up because those two specific things happened to be in the same tweet:

>so if I'd done it in 2 separate tweets it'd have been ok? Or, if I said on an article or podcast that he had a great dunk and also struggled the rest of the night, that's ok? But putting those 2 things together in one tweet isn't? Gotcha!

In my opinion, the backlash was justified, and Nate didn't do himself any favors by digging his heels in. Is it okay to lay out the whole picture for the sake of analysis? Absolutely, that's important, and as fans we should have that. But this kind of longform analysis is meant for mediums like podcasts, not Twitter. Nate thought he was simply being objective with his tweet, but instead came off as a curmudgeon by taking away from what he himself called the "dunk of the year" in the same keystroke.

AITa for forcing my BF to buy me a new blanket after he allowed a random dog he was sitting use mine?

I'm 28f. I have a pet dander allergy. Nothing severe; I just break out in small, itchy, painful hives that usually only last like 24 hours max. But regardless, it's incredibly uncomfortable and I am a royal cunt in the event of flare ups due to how uncomfortable it is. My BF is fully aware of this because have been together 6 years and when moving in with me, he had dog hair all over his belongings which caused me to break out continuously for days.

I went for an overnight business trip 2 days ago. He dropped me off at the airport and where it was 3am in the morning, I brought along my blanket. Leaving it in the front seat when we got there. I was aware that when I was gone he was going to be dog sitting his bestfriends golden retriever. I made a point to tell him to bring a change of clothing so he could change prior to coming home because of the dog hair and me not wanting to have an episode.

Well, he came to pick me up from the airport last night and all I could smell was dog. Mind you, this is my vehicle. So I asked him why my car smelt like dog and he said "My car ran out of gas so I had to use yours". I questioned it because he was going to their house and there was no need for the animal to be in my car. He claims the dog jumped into the car when he opened the door and he hadnt meant for it to happen. No big deal! But there was an outrageous amount of dog hair all over my blanket. Heres where I may be an AH...

So his buddy came over this morning and said to my BF "Tucker really needed that car ride yesterday. Thank you for bringing him with you!" Turns out he took the dog for a hike, using my car to transport. He immediately started trying to explain himself to me, saying he vacuumed the car afterwards and cleaned it as much as he could, etc. So, I asked about my blanket. He tells me that the dog loved the blanket and everytime he took it away, the dog kept finding a way to grab it and lay down with it so he just allowed it at that point. Prior to this I was fine, thinking the dog just jumped in. After finding out he lied to my face, I told him to go buy me a new blanket. He said that wasnt necessary and that I could use his blanket. I told him that he caused this knowing I would break out, lied to my face and that since he doesnt give a fuck about my allergy, that he can buy me a new one. He says I'm being unfair. AITA?

ETA: Left out an important detail! Prior to asking him to purchase me a new blanket, I had asked him to bring my blanket to

I finally bought a new blanket, a year-and-a-half later. The nice lady at the store who helped me pick one out didn't know she was also part of something monumental -- it was comforting to share this moment with someone. Her smile brought me warmth.

Also, the blanket is very soft and it's the best investment I've ever made :)
