Same here, mom made ONE meal, and that was that - we had to at least try anything that hit the plate once and then if we didn’t like it, we could not have any of it. I grew up liking lima beans [fresh not canned] spinach and peas, artichokes ... luckily neither parent liked mushrooms because I am seriously allergic Read more

I only get notifications from my email, text messages, and alarms I set for specific times. I have never loaded my phone with facebook, games, various time wasters. I do have an ebook reader app, but it doesn’t do notifications at all. Android user. Hell, half the time I tend to ignore incoming calls, I am in Read more

WHy the heck should I “trust” the president any more than I would trust the normal announcement? Is he annointed and holy, does his shite not stink? Why do we need an extra ‘layer’ of announcement? Waste of time and money.

I have always had issues eating breakfast, Mom gave up and just let me nosh diner leftovers for breakfast, never had the sweet tooth for cereal, I can only do eggs for maybe 3 days before they start turning my stomach, and leftover noodles, leftover rice or mashed or roasted potatoes always were edible for me.

I have medication driven “morning sickness” that can hit at any time, day or night. Since eating is more difficult in the evenings I try to get the more nutritionally dense stuff in the morning - I had a portion of

Welllllll, think about it. Potatoes [and many other crops] take a moderately long time to grow to a useful harvest point. There are some things that are short season crops [specifically for the hell of it radishes at 20 days and butter lettuce at 45 days] that would work better for cropping for fresh treats to go Read more

If I focus on the center line crossing, I can see the center pair clearly but the ones on the periphery are sort of greyed out unless I focus closer to them. But then again my doc says I have incredible peripheral vision. Neat visual fun =)

Ugh - as a female who tends to do much of my driving at night and occasionally through some pretty desolate areas I fill up when I hit a quarter tank - and I make sure that I have $50 in *cash* stashed on road trips in case I run into issues where plastic isn’t an option. Why anybody [especially a woman] who risks Read more

My bad, it has been at least 15 years since I last read any of my SF books in hard copy =) Hm, will someone now marked Bredd?

Why is a neti pot ridiculous? Form and function, you put warm saline in, stand by the sink or in the shower, tilt your head and flush. No batteries, electrical wiring, fancy crap, just a simple little clay or plastic or glass pot and some inexpensive packets of salt and bicarb. I think my plastic neti pot cost me $3 Read more

Um, Coffiest is a beverage from Poul Anderson’s “Merchant Wars” ... copyright infringement much?

Geeze, way back in the dark ages, when mountains were young [OK, back in the 1970s] friends and I would do things like drp the beer can into a McDonalds cup and shove the straw in and *gasp* drink it through a straw ... or slug out a few gulps of coke and dump rum in [or dump rum into a slushy and stir it up for a Read more

But historically even when the farmers didn’t monocrop the diet was dead boring in many cases - if you lived in 1400s central Britain you probably ate some variant of grain [wheat, oats and barley cooked into porridge, bread, made into noodles/dumplings] some pulse [lentils, haricot beans] brassicas [generally Read more

I know how that goes =) Our house burnt last August, and I have spent an insane amount of time working on the personal property claim portion, and fighting with the attempt to get a modular home dropped in to replace the structure. *sigh* And I know how much work goes into a remodel [we had just freaking finished Read more

If you are in a corp ... I am in an excellent corp, we have fun on mining ops smacktalking each other in TS, and when we aren’t in any sort of op or roam together we frequently hang out in TS. While I can PVP, I fly a cloaky hauler with fuel for the guy cynoing the fleet, and hauling loot back out. I have done stuff Read more

The game has no story line - it is a giant sandbox you get dumped into, at one of 4 starting systems [4 ‘racials’ in game, I play Amarr, my husband is Caldari] You are in a starter ship, a frigate with minimal things that are player changable. You are given an ‘agent’ that issues you missions that train you in basic Read more

True, though I hang out and chat with my corpsmates, we go on roams where I fly a cloaking hauler and carry fuel to jump fleets and pick up loot ... as an indy pilot I gather planetary materials so we can build anything from a mining crystal to a cap ship, though I can also fly PVP when I want to [VR trained me to fly Read more

I wouldn’t mind suicide rear doors, it would make schlepping my wheelchair out of the back seat something I could do singlehandedly and not need to drive a momvan with a sliding driverside door.
