    [–] Are there any downsides to registering an RV in South Dakota? LilBadApple 1 points ago in GoRVing

    I’m the wife actually :) It’s not so much about saving up for a replacement, but we’ve decked our RV out just as we like it, and we’d really prefer to keep it on the road than trash it for what feels like a silly bureaucratic rule (not having a cat if it didn’t originally have one). The gifting is a good idea for a year though but I don’t think we can keep that up indefinitely.

    Hmm. This is a great idea but it sounds to me like it’s once every 2 years?

    Hmm. Not as cute as I’d hoped.

    I can share them! We removed the cat and tried to smog it so I have the readout. I’m out of the county till the 16th but will send them to you when I’m home. I remember the issue was at idle only and the reading was in the 300s.

    Also, good point about now being a good time to learn about carburetors!

    [–] Examples of food that most people think it's healthy , but it's not LilBadApple 2 points ago in nutrition

    Not a guy, I’m a gal. Maybe you’re right re: most yogurt brands in the US but yogurt as a food shouldn’t fall into the unhealthy category. Around the world most yogurt sold is the plain/no sugar added variety.

    [–] What are your thoughts on camping vs hostel/AirBnb/couchsurfing? LilBadApple 1 points ago in bicycletouring

    Very much depends where you are, population density, trip length, day length, weather, what your goals are, and personal preferences. My first tour through Northern and Central Europe I camped almost every night except when I was in cities. Recent tour in Asia, hotels were cheap, wilderness was scant, trip was shorter and daylight was limited so I stayed in cheap hotels for the most part. I prefer to camp but sometimes it’s more trouble than it’s worth depending on where you are (and sometimes you don’t have the means to do anything other than wild camp for a long tour so it depends on financial situation as well!).

    Just say yogurt with added sugar. Plain yogurt with living probiotics is healthy. It has the naturally occurring surgars in milk of course but as part of a balanced diet it’s a great addition.

    [–] What are you favorite songs off of the 80’s music soundtrack? LilBadApple 2 points ago in StrangerThings

    Ah, well that’s what binge watching with a fever will get you. A lot of emotions and foggy memory!

    [–] What are you favorite songs off of the 80’s music soundtrack? LilBadApple 5 points ago in StrangerThings

    Atmosphere by Joy Division, followed closely by Heroes performed by Peter Gabriel (same episode I believe — I remember the two-punch practically ruining me).

    [–] Are there any downsides to registering an RV in South Dakota? LilBadApple 1 points ago in GoRVing

    Yeah, I’ve been reading about that. We’re happy to pay taxes but we just want to keep our (non-polluting) RV on the road. We’re currently in Baja and there are a ton of cars with SD plates and looked into why.

    [–] Are there any downsides to registering an RV in South Dakota? LilBadApple 1 points ago in GoRVing

    We don’t know why it won’t pass but see trying to avoid chasing the problem. We’ve spoken with the (very few) local mechanics that work on carburetors and it seemed like quite a big and expensive endeavor to determine why it won’t pass.

    [–] Are there any downsides to registering an RV in South Dakota? LilBadApple 2 points ago in GoRVing

    Yes that was me! I had an appointment with a DMV referee and learned that this RV can’t have any cat because it was manufactured without one. So, looking for next steps.

    [–] Please help me name my little girl! LilBadApple 1 points ago in namenerds

    Sheena (Love this one, Sheena is a punk rocker), Gem, Maisey, Daley, Raya, Electra, Starlie. First name I thought of when I saw her honestly was “Bacon,” no idea why.

    “I would look for a crappier smog shop”

    This would have been ideal but now that it has a non-pass on its record (from a visual inspection with the cat) they can’t overlook it.

    [–] I would like to adopt a dog in USA LilBadApple 2 points ago in BeforeNAfterAdoption

    Not sure if you can’t afford an adoption fee as others have said or just aren’t familiar with the adoption process in the US. I’ll assume the latter. In the US, if you’d like to adopt a dog you need to pay a fee which goes toward the overhead, food, transport and medical expenses of the organization that took the animal in. The fees are usually between $75 and $300, sometimes more for purebred animals or cities with a higher cost of living. If you can’t afford this, I’d agree you shouldn’t adopt. If that sounds ok, then move onto the next part. Does your living situation allow you to have pets? Get this squared away first. Will you be there for the duration of your stay in the US? Look into the import requirements for your home country to see what bringing a dog back entails. Finally, can you afford to pay upwards of several thousand dollars if needed for veterinary care for your animal? If all of these things are square, I’d suggest visiting your local animal shelter or checking out [Petfinder](www.petfinder.com) online.

    Another option that might be better suited for your scenario is to foster for a rescue. They provide the dog, usually all the supplies, and you provide the love and a home until they are adopted. I’m sure there are many wonderful rescue orgs in your area who would be thrilled to have you as a foster home. It’s a wonderful way to have a pet in your life without the long term commitment.

    [–] When you see Louis, do you pronounce it like Louie or Lewis? LilBadApple 2 points ago in namenerds

    Depends on the last name (if it is a Latin American or French sounding last name, Louie all the way) but in the absence of a last name it would be Lewis. Live in the US.

    [–] [Help] Neighbor says I don’t pick up dog poop LilBadApple 1 points ago in dogs

    Based the other responses this will likely get buried and be unpopular, but here goes: what about nicely talking with her and reasoning with her? She’s your neighbor after all, and yeah she’s being a cunt but not being at war with her is to your advantage. Bake some cookies, walk over with said cookies sans dog, and ask if you can sit down and chat with her. Then calmly talk to her with an open heart. She obviously is pissed off because she sees un-picked up dog poop near her home quite frequently, and you’re an easy target. Once you humanize yourself and share your side, I’d be really surprised if she kept harassing you...but if she did, that’s the time to go the other routes people are suggesting.
