Re: Broke on $400K a year

Ah, the hedonic treadmill. If you focus on what you don't have instead of what you do, you will always feel broke.

Re: Attention 1DEG!

We are kindred spirits in the appliance department. I have a waffle iron, but no nut grinder, so I think we even out. :)

Yup, everything into the vitamix and blend for about a minute. Clean up is really easy. I put a bit of water and dish soap into the container and then blend that until everything is loosened. Then rinse that out.

Re: Attention 1DEG!

I do have a vitamix. I know they are expensive, but a really good quality blender is so important, IMO. It doesn't have to be vitamix. Blendtech is a great company, and since I bought mine I think ninja has out out a good quality blender. And Bed [more]

Re: You need $100K a year, at least?

I do have a family of 4 with kids under 10 and we live in the suburbs of a major city with a relatively high cost of living, so I guess we are just who the author is talking about.

Re: Whole food vegan recipes

Thanks for the new place to get recipes. I use oil in my cooking, but I do limit our refined sugar intake, and it's not like I have to use oil in all of my cooking. I am excited to check her recipes out.

Re: Could Brown have been mentally unstable?

Re: Could Brown have been mentally unstable?

I bristle when people with no mental health education or training try to armchair diagnose someone they have never met based on tiny tidbits of information. Of course, it's generally only people with no mental health education or training who do so [more]

Re: 'Immoral' not to abort Down's foetuses

Singling out children with Down Syndrome is seriously problematic. We shouldn’t judge a person’s humanity by how intelligent they are or how they look or whether or not they can make meaningful contributions to society.

Re: 'Immoral' not to abort Down's foetuses

Richard Dawkins, the atheist writer, has caused a stir on Twitter claiming it is "immoral" to allow unborn babies with Down's syndrome to live. But what do the relatives of people with Down's syndrome think about the [more]

Re: It makes me wonder...

I wonder why women even tolerate such attitudes. Just feed the baby when it needs to be fed. If somebody objects just tell them to go mind their own business. If they don't, spray them with pepper spray and tell the cops the person was being [more]

So would you be OK with calling Coffee-Mate "Milk"?

Re: Cow-free Milk

Well I don't think anyone is trying to dupe anyone else by calling the soy derived beverage soy milk. I think in this case, it's about recognizing how it is used rather than where it came from. I use soy milk in my cereal and coffee the same way most [more]

Beverages need to stop being labeled "milk" if it doesn't come from mammals. I'm talking to you Almond, Soy and Rice, and you too Milk of Magnesia.

Re: Atheist and Arrogance

I think it a sad statement on our society when intellectuals are regarded as arrogant simply because they know more than other people.
