I want to become a fight announcer, specifically for MMA and kickboxing. (I'd love to do boxing, too, but I think I'm more qualified for MMA and kickboxing.) Who do I talk to? Where do I go? [more inside]
I already feel sheepish for asking this. I have a French colleague who swore up and down that there are places (prisons? He was vague, we were drinking) where sugar cubes are banned, because they are used to cut people in fights. A supposed bonus is that the sugar makes resulting wound heal poorly. This all sounds like the kind of BS I would be proud to make up myself, and it's surprisingly difficult to look up on Google. Has anyone else heard of this? Because if it's a thing, that is nutty.
I freely admit I'm not good at having aggression directed towards me, so I can't tell what to do. Essentially, cultural differences are making it really hard to get along with my roommate. Please help this co-op living delicate flower (me) coexist happily with my very German roommate! Like everyone, I am a special snowflake. This is long and detailed because I'm processing as I write.

I am tired of being the owl for my friends and family. How do I get them to talk to *each other* instead of *me*? [more inside]
My parents fight. A lot. My brother is able to drown out the fights somehow and stay neutral. I am not--I get in between the fights and support my mother.

Help my girlfriend and me end this stupid and (I suspect) fairly common dynamic of arguing. [more inside]
A girl I briefly dated, and am still on good terms with, is currently seeing a scumbag. I'd like to warn her, but there's a catch or two. [more inside]
Why do I pick fights with people close to me and how can I stop? I'm not like this with friends, just relatives and S.O. [more inside]
Your significant other is in a disagreement with someone and looks to you to back him/her up. You think the other person is right and your s.o. is wrong. Quick: what do you do?
