    Kombucha - anyone drink it?

    I was dead dog exhausted today - 3rd day in a row where I can't wake up, can't stop yawning, and can't focus. For me, given my health issues, it's a sign my body isn't getting enough vitamins and my circulation isn't in check. Phys activity and vitamins - heavy and steady vitamin amounts - is...

    Four-year old gets graphic birthday cake showing cow giving birth...

    Four-year-old gets graphic birthday cake showing cow giving birth - and absolutely loves it - Mirror Online Gross. I think when your kid develops a birthing fetish (known as maiesophilia - just in case you didn't want to know) at such a young age, and you support it and encourage it, you've...

    College students... do you feel your teachers put time and effort into teaching?

    Things have changed a lot since I was first in college. This go around - all of my teachers are obsessed with powerpoint presentations instead of giving quality lectures / providing board-notes during class, they just click through powerpoint slides that are overpopulated with too much...

    Northern VS Southern (Hemispheres) and World Exploration

    (I'm back to college. Taking Astronomy.) We were just discussing the role of stars in navigation - how, in order to understand where you are in relation to the greater whole (the rest of the earth / the universe), you benefit from having a fixed-point to compare and measure your movement...

    Why did the GOP pick Trump in the beginning?

    This has stumped me - and I know it's been talked about here at the forum, but as far as I can see there's no thread dedicated to it. It's usually a sub-topic in a thread. So... why did the GOP say, "Yes, Trump, we want you to become a candidate potential. Come join us."? Did they really not...

    Do you think you'd move on and remarry after your spouse passes away?

    My husband's out of town and i have paperwork to do - and in this paper work are rather depressing inquiries into his health. Oh why do I do this to myself? . . . I always ask myself that when I start dwelling on this inevitable future. What will I do when he dies? Other than become a wino...

    Fear Thy Neighbor (TV show)

    I've watched several episodes of this show, lately, and sometimes i'm not too sure if some people's murderous revenge isn't somehow understandable (I said understandable - as opposed to shockingly senseless . . . that's not the same as acceptable or encouraged, etc). Sometimes I really wonder...

    Tolls - billing VS paying-at-the-booth

    So on a recent trip to the West Coast, we went through a lot of toll roads. Two places (Denver, Co and The Golden Gate Bridge in Ca) opted out of a manned booth and instead sleuth and bill you based on your car's registration - sending you a bill in the mail. A bill for $1.25 and another for...

    Roadfood - website for "Authentic Regional Eats"

    https://roadfood.com A good website for foodies. Not a single big-name chain in sight. I came across it while doing trip-planning. We're going on a round trip to California, hitting 10 states. Need some good food stops that will offer a tasty variety rather than tired old fastfood chains.

    Religion and sports... is this common?

    My daughter's softball league prays after every game. Win or lose doesn't matter, no one cheers until after the teams congratulate each other and then get in a circle holding hands - saying the Lord's Prayer together. Being raised in a religious family I thought I'd seen it all... this is a new...

    udge Accused of Having Sex with Defendants Resigns as Explicit Photos Surface

    Judge Accused of Having Sex with Defendants Resigns as Explicit Seriously what in the ****? 4,500 photos... thousands of people? It went on unreported for ALL THIS TIME? I didn't put this in the 'news' section because it's just too ****ed up.

    I'm too irritated to think of an apt title. How about: Aunt Spiker's freaking pissed

    This might be a rant - I'm not sure. Like countless people - I'm struggling to lose weight. [Let's dispense with a few assumptions: I don't overeat, according to all the many calorie calculators. I don't snack much. I don't eat huge portions of food. When I saw I was consuming excess calories...

    B-52 bombing run at Ft. Sill (Oklahoma)

    For Spring Break my family took a trip to Letra - a recreational facility on Elmer Thomas Lake in Ft. Sill, Ok. With a twist of humor this could be seen as the story of how we thought we were going to die for about an hour because we disconnected from the Internet. We were at the beach walking...

    Coffee (more so - the sugar in the coffee)

    Coffee, the blessed evil, is why I've been working out every day for a long time and yet still slowly gaining weight. After some regretful calculations that made me cringe (which came after a lot of resistance), I figured that my 4 - 6 cups of coffee + (apparently) 3/16 (or .18 - .20) of a cup...

    One thing I'm pretty sick of hearing...

    From quite a few of the candidates: Anti-wealthy, anti-1%, anti-rich sentiments. Do they not realize they're all ****ing rich? That when they speak out against 'rich' they are speaking against themselves - while TRYING to pretend as if they're not well off. It's ridiculous hypocrisy and they...

    The term 'Cis gendered'

    Apparently a cis gendered individual is one who: Believes their physical sex and psychological gender match (a masculine male - a feminine female). ??? They had to come up with a special strange-sounding term JUST to say 'male' and 'female' ??? Why so - because a small percentage of people...

    Sex - and poor timing

    How often, do you suppose, you let sexual urges become the most important thing? Like - having sex and being late to class/work though otherwise nothing would have kept you from getting there on time. Or staying up too late and then having sex when you should be sleeping - thus waking up...

    All right - I joined a gym

    I'm not sure what I want to do with my fitness - but I've maintained the same level of physical ability for 2 years - and I'm sort of sick and ****ing tired of it. I don't have any means of truly changing things enough to not really quit, either. So off I go to the gym. What do you do when you...

    Views of birth parents (?)

    Some pro-life advocates hold a none-too-quiet and open distaste (or even vile disgust, some supporting things as extreme as the death penalty) for mothers who've aborted. I only assume the view extends to fathers who want to abort as well though that's not commented on as often. For those who...

    Well that was f'ing depressing.

    We went to Hallmark to buy a few ornaments for Xmas gifts - and they had a new Star Trek ornament. The scene from Star Trek III where Spock dies. (The needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many). And it even played the dialogue from that scene. I had to tell my husband to shut it up...
