Peace, love, and understanding

Dealing with overbearing sibling of boyfriend

My boyfriend and I have been together a very very long time and its been a rough road for the past few years because of his excessive need for space and distance, and his need to socialize with friends when are together. We were both ambivalent towards the notion of marriage earlier but are now working towards it. After living for many years in a long distance relationship we are now living together in the same city as his sister. She is fundamentally a kind and generous person but not someone I'd independently be friends. My problem is since my boyfriend moved into the city they have both been rather aggressive about spending time with each other with my boyfriend mostly unable but often unwilling to set boundaries and carve the space we need.

Why do I have a high alcohol (etc.) tolerance?

I'm pretty tolerant to any substances I've tried; alcohol, cannabis, and prescription medication always needed higher than average doses on me to procure any effects. I also sober up pretty fast. Just out of curiosity, what does this mean? Does my body do something well? Do I just have a healthy liver? [more inside]

Covering up hate graffiti

Multiple swastikas and SS symbols have recently been carved into the wall of my apartment complex's laundry room. I complained to the landlord and nothing has changed. I want to cover them with something temporary so that I don't have to look at them until my landlord repairs the walls. I was thinking about something with an opposing message to the graffiti, like one of tolerance, even though I know I'm not going to change any white supremacist minds. Any ideas?

Just found out my religious friend is (sort of) anti-gay

My somewhat newly religious friend told me that because of his spiritual beliefs he now believes that homosexuality is wrong because God planned men and women to procreate, and gay relationships don't follow that plan. He also said he is pro gay marriage because he views that as more of a political or practical issue and doesn't think that religion should be used as a justification for laws that also govern the non-religious. How should I take this? [more inside]

The science of the "second wind"

About a week ago, I started jogging a mile a day and already I've noticed I've been getting kind of a second wind maybe 2/3 of the way in and my time has been going down quite a bit. Does anyone know the reason or the science behind the body getting used to being pushed? Also, does anyone know the proper breathing techniques for runners? I have some unreliable information saying it should all be through the nose. Need a second opinion.
