Re: Cosmos ... wow

I loved last night's episode. I particularly loved the dig at allowing industries to self regulate. I can't wait to watch it again with my kids tonight.

Re: Does Anybody Really?

As for housing, we live in a relatively expensive area compared to the country as a whole, so there is only so cheap we can go. But I had the benefit of watching a housing bubble grow and burst before I bought my first home. So when looking to [more]

Re: Does Anybody Really?

I think we do. Money goes into savings every month. Long term debt of student loans and mortgage goes down every month. No consumer debt is accrued. To me, that is LBYM. Could we live further below? Maybe.

Re: Sugar free diet news

We are not sugar free, but I try to stick with the mayo clinic guidelines of no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day. I bake my own bread, and usually add about a tablespoon of sugar per loaf of sandwich bread, which just helps the yeast get [more]

Re: We need atheist candy

We did celebrate the vernal equinox, but it was way earlier than Easter this year. This isn't really a big problem, it's just my son's first year in preschool, so it's the first time he is hearing about these traditions we have never done. But as [more]

Re: We need atheist candy

My family of origin is Jewish, so he knows about Hannukah. Thankfully my kids are really good about understanding the limit to presents so far, and most of our holiday celebrations center around the special foods and activities rather than gifts. I [more]

We need atheist candy

My son is 4. Today he asks me why we don't celebrate Easter. He has asked before, so i gave the usual answer of, "Because we are not Christian. It is a Christian holiday." Normally this is enough for him, but today he persisted in a [more]

Re: Cosmos again

I previously asked about objects in the cosmos moving faster that the SOL and there were some replies that suggested such.

Got it. I didn't see that previous discussion, so missed what you were referring to. I will gladly bow out now [more]

Re: Cosmos again

Speed of Light. The narrator was quite emphatic that nothing moves faster than the speed of light. That seems to conflict with previous posts here that suggested otherwise. This is possibly due to the expansion of space** - which is even more [more]

Re: Are your kids playing with lucifers testicles?

You know, I wasn't going to get easter eggs for my kids this year, but if they are Lucifer's testicles, I may need to reconsider my position. Sounds fun.

Re: vegetarians

Might there have been some pre-selection going on? In other words, did some of the people become vegetarians because they had health problems?

I didn't notice any reference to that (i.e. finding out whether the health problems preceded

Re: vegetarians

The environmental argument against meat is another dimension entirely. I suspect that much of the problem is caused by intensive feedlot operations not healthy range animals.

Well yes, feedlot animals are a huge part of the problem. [more]

First, to get a pet peeve out of the way. No humans consume a carnivorous diet. Carnivores eat only meat and no plants at all. Humans are omnivores. While humans can get all of their required nutrients from consuming a wide [more]

Re: English is insane...

I have become keenly aware of all of the peculiarities of our language as I try to teach my youngest how to read. My daughter taught herself, and I never realized how lucky I was that I didn't have to be involved.

Re: The Five Second Food Rule

Mythbusters addressed this one years ago, and I thought they found that it was not true, at least for any moist foods. They found that moist foods picked up a large amount of bacteria right away. maybe it is worse after 5 seconds, but that doesn't [more]

Re: Pumpkin Cutlets

Pumpkin gets a bit soft as you cook it, so I would roast or broil since those cooking methods tend to involve the least moving around of the food while cooking. Or maybe grill if you have one of those veggie grill cage thingies. If you broil, I would [more]

Re: Run 30 lab tests with only one drop of blood

Just a couple of days ago I had to take my 4 year old for some routine blood work. We spent two days practicing, and even so he was very distressed. I had to sit with him in my lap for a good 30 minutes after until he felt ok to go back in the car. [more]
