Re: Tamarind?

Can I safely assume that the recipe is actually calling for tamarind paste but calling it (for some strange reason) tamarind extract?

Tamarind paste is the dry fruit of the tamarind tree without the pod and may or may not contain the [more]

Re: Doubling Down on .22 stupidity

Can I infer from your post that a 22 round has too little force to kill someone/thing other than small animals?

Axe-u-lee the .22 LR has probably killed more deer (illegally) than any other round in history. Even a pellet from an air [more]

Re: Stop burning wood to stay warm

I bet it was windy too, how about installing some wind powered turbines that in turn can move the toxic air above the city?

Re: Stop burning wood to stay warm

Axe-u-lee, axe anyone that spent a winter in Fairbanks and probably 98.841% of them would agree with the EPA that the residents shouldn’t be burning wood to keep warm, no. The problem with the city of Fairbanks is that it sits in a valley. During the [more]

Re: old car charitable donation valuation?

The quick rundown is that you don't get to value the donation. For donations of vehicles, you must use what the charity sells the car for as the value of your donation. The charity will tell you what that value is after it is [more]
