Re: off to college

What exactly is interesting about the first day of school?

Well if it's the first day of kindergarten, or high school or college it marks a time of new beginning; a change in one's life and routine that may be felt to be momentous. If [more]

Re: Ferguson, MO

What can an unarmed person do against someone with a gun?

Nothing if the person with a gun doesn't use it. But if the person with the gun doesn't fire it, then the unarmed person may very well kill the person with the gun if they are [more]

Naytheless, learning Mandarin could be a good investment for anyone, especially the younger generation, no?

Re: LBYM health care

Oh and I just want to add that the last time I went to the doctor's to get my test check-up it wasn't the doctor's visit that was outrageous it was the lab bill - $100+ for the doctor and 2 weeks later a separate bill from the lab for 500+. I damn [more]

Re: LBYM health care

OK a few caveats on what some people have posted. 1) Don't buy those test strips in bulk. They are very sensitive and the older they are the more likely they will give you a bad reading. 2) And besides you don't want to buy test strips because [more]

Re: Another gun nut killing

I wouldn't. I'd shoot for the head.

And you would miss. Head shots are not for handguns & tense, adrenaline fueled situations. Head shots are for rifles with scopes and a leisurely deep breathing meditative sort of situation.

Re: Pot Legalization

I'm really opposed to the legalization of marijuana. I truly am afraid that its pervasive use will lead to hard drugs like alcohol.

Re: tragic

Yeah I'm going to disagree as well although it's anecdotal, but since the anecdote was moi it carries a lot of weight with me. Two, three years ago I miss my first flu shot in many years ... and I got the flu. I lost a solid month of my life, and the [more]

Re: Ms. Insulin Dependent America

Honestly? If I had just glanced at the photo or seen a person in real life on the beach I never even would have thought insulin pump. Young people these days seem to have so many bits and pieces of electronics attached to their bodies that an insulin [more]

Re: Lunch help needed

Nah. Tried that. Tried several varieties of the insulated lunch bag, cup, bowl etc. Invariably by the time lunch rolled around the hot stuff was tepid with a hint of hot left and the cold stuff was tepid with a hint of cool left. For keeping stuff [more]

Re: Lunch help needed

Probably won't keep anything molten hot, but should keep things warmish.

Actually a really good thermos will indeed keep that soup molten hot, at least if you eat lunch the same day you put it in the thermos. I packed my children's [more]

Re: How to grow a garden.

hmmm...another nice thing about giving credit is that you see the folks that put together that chart are in the UK. Think I might need to tweek it a bit as to account for the slight climate differences between England and the west Texas desert.

Re: the only atheist at work

I mostly kept my mouth shut. Because on both religion and politics I was definitely an outlier. When I did speak up it eventually gained me a reputation as a charming eccentric. Like my ideas where untenable but they were going to give me a pass for [more]
