Yeah, no. Singapore was fun that way. In Sentek city there's a grocery store and they got in a load of durian and the whole concourse smelled funny for the rest of the week. I liked all the signs on the transport and taxis "No Durian" LOL. »
How do you learn without doing? I mean, you can memorize facts, but that's not learning the thing the facts are about. I can learn all about skateboards, but until I step on one, I've learned nothing about skateboarding. »
Yeah. Some mice got into our RV and chewed through actual plastic boxes to get at the stuff inside, even though it was only toilet paper to make a nest with. Meh. Now we have to bleach everything. »
I never automate payments of any (significant) size. Habit I developed when I was much younger and made a lot less money, and had to decide which check to pay each bill with each month. If you don't use "autopay", it eliminates most of the problems you describe here. »
"Indeed, it seems that all diets do work; the hard part is finding one you can stick to. In order to determine a diet's overall sustainability, go through Dr. Freedhoff's checklist below and assign an enjoyability score of 1-10 before you decide to try the diet:"
If you use the same standards applied to other… »
This is true of literally everything. Recently dog food from China was cut with melamine; does that anyone who speaks about dog food should say "it might contain melamine"? »
It's always possible to trade time for money/savings. My wife constantly combs the craigslist free stuff - though we don't have time to go get it, usually, and it's gone by the time we do. If you've got time to sort through and organize coupons and search for sales and visit multiple stores you can save a *lot* of… »
First, let me point out that first study doesn't correlate calories consumed to weight loss; only notes that both diets reduced caloric intake, but LC reduced it *more* than MC. This does not equate to "calories are all equal".
I've noted in other conversations here that when I snoop through Google Scholar and other… »
To be fair, that M3 and all three lenses probably fit into a box the same size as your Canon + superzoom! LOL. I'm amazed that there is a real live film camera there. I always wanted a Leica M3. Pretty much the pinnacle of mechanical camera design, IMO. But digital caught up with film before I made enough money to own… »
I think a theme emerges as I read down through this list. Most of these are verbal colloquialisms that people tend to include in their writing because they write like they speak. They are typically expressed in a certain tone of voice intended to convey a certain subtext that's lost in the spare reality of textual… »
Easy. You're not. You just do it when you don't have a (edit) *compelling* reason not to.
I say this as someone who's been with the same person for thirty years. But whatever you think it's going to be like? It won't. I've watched people "settle down" time after time, and listened to their descriptions of what it will… »
Great stuff. I can't live without my cast iron. We've got a great set of stainless steel pans with the copper slug built into the bottom and all, but we still use the cast iron for nearly everything. »
Are we really under the impression that there won't be an adapter for folks who really, desperately want to use a USB mouse and a charger at the same moment? This thing is for road warriors who want to travel light. If you're a desktop-replacement screen-real-estate must-have-particular-usb-mouse user, get the Macbook… »
Outlook O365 was unusably slow on my Macbook Pro. The new 2016 Outlook is really fast and looks good. Word loaded immediately, Excel starts up fast and loads large spreadsheets quickly. Color me impressed. »
I've been playing with bone conduction drivers from PartsExpress (cheap, cheap, cheap). Sound quality never exceeds "eh, ok", but it does two things: allows you to hear the sounds around you, and allows you to hear your media even when the environment around you is extremely loud. »
When I make a "big" purchase, I've always got to spend some time thinking "what is there that I can AVOID spending this money on?" LOL. There's always *something* else. »
Meth is an amphetamine. There was a recent study that caused quite a bit of a kerfuffle in the drug abuse resistance community because it demonstrated that meth is *just* amphetamine, no more (or less) dangerous than other amphetamines. Those who are paying attention know that Adderal is amphetamines, and it… »
