Re: Europeans from Mars, Asians from Venus

Yep! As brains are shutting down one would expect strange things to be "felt".

I had a nasty accident a while ago and was unconscious for a good 20 minutes*. The visions I saw and felt were incredible. They have faded quite [more]

Re: George Will Nails It!

Fox will decide that the clown car has veered too far over the line, even for them.

Fox is steering while the Koch brothers work the pedals.

Re: Texas= Definition of batsh!t crazy

I've got a lot in common with the conservatives on the other side of the aisle, and I still think (perhaps naively) that the way we all win as a nation is to bridge the gaps instead of building walls in between them.

But maybe I'm just

Re: tele--I need pancake help

Bah! Too much work. Just buy a bag of Krusteaz pancake mix.

Krusteaz isn't bad, but home made whole grain pancakes are much much better. It's worth it.

Re: tele--I need pancake help

Try 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder
Use a little plain yogurt with the water to make them sort of buttermilky?
You usually need 1 cup of liquid for every cup of flour
Add an egg? and a Tbs of milk?

Re: "Peaceful Demonstrators" Out Of Co

You guys wound these thugs up.

You guys? Who the he!! are 'you guys'? Perhaps they cop who shot the guy in the back in SC 7 times got them 'wound up'. More likely, it was just a bunch of crooks who saw an opportunity to rob and lot. [more]

Re: "Peaceful Demonstrators" Out Of Contro

But FAR more liberals will applaud or excuse this behavior than will condemn it. After all, it's the liberal fashion these days.

Really? You do know how stupid this sounds, don't you?

Re: Trail building

When I was 17 I was in the YCC. I spend all summer living in a tent and building/repairing trails in the Gunnison national forest. That was a spectacular summer. Hard work, but I was 17 and camping everyday. What fun that was!

Re: About the SC shooting

At it's root this incident appears to spring from feminist policies to lock men up if they don;t support women in the manner to which they are accustomed.

If you have a kid - you should support it. That's just the right thing to do.

Re: Things Early Retirees Agree On

Sure you do. Conservatives built this country to what it is today. It didn't get there by socialism , for sure.

Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower - All liberals. The list is endless.

Re: About the SC shooting

Curious how a man behind in his child support payments would be in the middle of buying a Mercedes. (see video.)

That isn't curious at all. It's called being selfish. However, there usually isn't a death penalty for being selfish.

Dieing is easy.

Did you mean "Dying is easy," or "Dieting is easy"?


Well, given the context of the discussion, what did you think I meant?

Re: Cheap annuity

Besides which who knows how long I'm going to live?

The crossover age between taking it at 62 and full retirement age or 70 is about 81. If you think you will live past 81, or far past 81, it is worth it to wait. If you don't think [more]
