Re: sociobiology and grandmothers

Most women have become infertile by their late thirties.

FWIW, I was nursing my younger son on my 45th birthday. It's not that uncommon. It certainly is true for many of the women in my family tree.

Re: Syrzia's POV & Plans

FTKW,

You beat me to posting that link! I hope people read the whole thing, not just the excerpt.

Re: How expensive it is to be poor

Perhaps the most effective speaker I've ever heard was the Professor of Atmospheric Sciences who talks to farmers about Climate Change. He begins the talk with, "I grew up poor." He describes the life of moving from farm to farm because his [more]

Is Syriza Really "Radical Left"?

From Paul Krugman's blog w/ reference to Saraceno's post:

Re: Mastectomy preparation -- supplies

Wendy,

FWIW, when I had my lumpectomy they advised having a supply of front-buttoning shirts. But then, I didn't have drains.

I did notice, painfully, that one shouldn't sleep on the side of the incision, but you have both sides to [more]

Re: Double mastectomy

Oh Wendy! (((Wendy)))

I just now checked this board. I think you made the right choice with that family history.

I wish you a speedy recovery, although it will likely feel like forever.

Re: OT: The $3500 shirt

I think this is a grotesque overestimation at least insofar as wool spinning is concerned, certainly since the introduction of the spinning wheel in the high middle ages.

Re: TMF am I the only one still getting this mes

I believe they found a nasty nexus of crap code and corrected it.

Re: Alzheimers Cure?

It is extremely difficult to diagnose, and no doc wants to just come out and say it, unless he/she is really sure. In our case, I will say that it went on for years, and the poor woman died because she forgot how to swallow.

Re: 2nd Bank Closure

Goofy,

As others pointed out, I've been doing this for a few years. Over the past few months, posters have said they appreciate the update. It's no big deal to check the FDIC website, although the closings have been tapering off.

Re: OT - Rear Ended by a 2015 VW

I'm always amazed at how small the world is. Live in one place for 10 or more years and see how it works, especially if one spouse or another has family there. Alternatively, work in a specific field for long enough and it's amazing how so many [more]

Re: The Obsession with Alaska

You might want to check the age of the audience for these Alaska shows. When my sons were in high school (2002-2007) they watched The Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Trucker almost every chance they got. Today they couldn't be bothered.

E2 will cause the normal garbage collection mechanism in the brain to shut down.

Re: Wood Stove

Goofy,

You didn't name the brand of wood stove!

About 10 years back we used a Vermont Castings wood stove to heat the house (2400 sq ft) during almost a week long power outage. It had a long flame path behind the combustion chamber [more]
