Default Is water wet or dry?

Is water wet or dry?

For those who may be wondering what I’m babbling on about, the above is the question that comes up when unregistered members of ODF start searching the database.


Simple enough question to answer granted – though I suspect it’s there as means of establishing whether or not the asker is an automated bot or a somewhat insane human lol?


After perusing this site for a year, I appreciate what a wealth of knowledge this forum represents to us poor souls going through the divorce process though I have also noticed some recurring themes that keep coming back time and time again …. Here’s a few ODF ‘’truisms’’.
  • A lot of people out there have no clue as to what consist a real emergency.
  • Best interest of the children is an overused and meaningless term.
  • If you are awarded SS regardless of clear-cut entitlement, for God’s sake don’t mention it in here – you were warned!
  • Deadbeats and douche-bags come in all genders, ages and from all social-economic backgrounds.
  • A lot of people are no way near as poor/rich as they claim to be.
  • Undue hardship does not mean having to live modestly within your means.
  • Legal-Aid recipients are all hysterical litigants wasting the courts time.
  • The Ex is a horrible parent, 100% evil and I'm a victim.
  • There’s no such thing as a decent, reasonable or honest lawyer.
And finally, my all-time favorite: victims of domestic violence are money-grubbing feminists playing with the system in order to gain custody of their children ….

Feel free to add your own observations.

Yes it appears that many individuals will promote their own self interests by telling untruths, only portions of the truth, exaggerating details and by intentionally misleading others. This goes for posters here on this forum, former spouses and lawyers alike. I take issue with this.

HC's love "best interests of the children" because that translates to "their best interests".

People will believe what they want regardless of the facts in front of them. I'm referencing the text above about not being as rich or poor as they claim to be. I recall once a member of our community said that my husband was "making it hard on his former spouse". I challenged them, I said: how hard is he making it? She doesn't work and it's been several years since the separation. She lives in a half a million dollar new home she just bought. She drives an expensive brand new car. She has a vacation property. And he is an involved father who is with his kids 5-6 days a week....he drives a 13 year old car and just finally managed to move out of his parent's spare room and got himself a modest apartment - if you could have seen the look on this persons face! Just because it was said or put into print it doesn't mean it's true.

1. What people FEEL is an emergency is subjective. People come here To LEARN what the law considers an emergency.
2. I agree. I am sure the term was dreamed up by politicians and/or radical feminists to hide their stupidity and hidden agendas.
3. Why would you want let ANYBODY know you can't support yourself and have been given legal authority to STEAL from a working tax paying individual?
4. Agree but females constitute a higher percentage. Do some research.
5. Impossible to verify.
6. Undue hardship is having an Ex STEAL money from someone who EARNS it. Child support not included of course.
7. Of course especially the ones who cry abuse.
8. I'm sure he is and I'm sure you are.
9. Disagree. They are just few and far between.
10. They are.

I will add mine

There are many on here with too much time on their hands and no life

- Apres-divorce Superdad/Supermom: Couldn't have bothered their arse to have anything to do with their children while married. Immediately upon separation he/she wants to spend enormous amounts of time with children. All the while swearing it has nothing to do with financials but in the best interests of the children

Your post is quite interesting as are your previous posts. You have stated previously that you are registered with FRO but have had no success in receiving any money from your ex.

Why on earth would you use FRO when you are so vehemently against collecting money from former spouses? I suspect that if you suddenly got a cheque in the mail your opinion on people collecting support would have to change or it would be a tad silly, on your part, to condemn something that you yourself participate in would it not?

Oh..... wait....... your're probably going to say the support your ex hasn't paid is child support. And then I could say to you - why do you think you should receive child support when you supported your children on your own?

You are correct it is for child support. And no I support my children AND myself. Thank you.

Then why register a claim with FRO against a hard-working tax paying person? Don't you think it's STEALING? You've managed all right on your own all this time. If you received 10 years worth of support it surely would be a windfall for you would it not?

No. It would help put 4 kids through university. Why are you trying to bait me? I've noticed you like to argue a lot. Is this perhaps one of the reasons you find yourself alone at such a late stage in life?
