Should I stay or go?

Follow-up to this. So I finally managed to break things off with the one in my class. I had some talks with some other people also and realized that it wasn't good for me, and I was essentially being used.

I was run over, should I take legal action? If so, how?

So I was crossing the street right after work in the crosswalk, on a green walk sign. A cab was making a left turn, ran into me, knocked me down, and then ran over my foot!

Are Independent Financial Advisers worth it? (UK)

I'm in the UK. My wife has contacted an IFA. They want to charge us £270 for an initial meeting, which will be reduced by 77% if we proceed with a pension product (for me, self-employed) they recommend; or, they will produce a full report for us which will cost in excess of £1600. Are they getting money for old rope? How hard do they really work for this money? Are they worth seeing? We're not millionaires - we earn decent but unremarkable amounts, and that sort of fee would dent the savings we're trying to protect. What are your experiences?

How to look normal in a long black trenchcoat?

I'm 6 feet tall, solidly built, in my early twenties, and I have an ankle-length black leather trenchcoat. It's swishy and sleek, with a button closure (no belt), like this one (it may be the same coat). I got this coat after pining for it in high school for years, and went through a wearing-black Matrix phase with sunglasses and the whole deal. Now I have a girlfriend and some perspective, and I'm more likely to wear pullover sweaters. [more inside]
