Re: Wilfred (FXX) -- The Final Season Thread -- Premieres 6/25/14

I'm loving this. Unlike, say, Lost, I don't really give a shit if they tie everything up and make sense of it all. I just enjoy it for the weirdness that it is.

Re: Educate me on digital cameras.

Spend a few hours learning about composition, exposure, and lighting. Your photos will improve dramatically regardless of the camera you're using. It's the photographer who makes the photo.

Re: Vegetarianism

I've gone in the opposite direction. I eat a ketogenic (very low carbohydrate) diet. I've been at it for over a year now. I'm down about 95 pounds and I've never felt better. My diet consists of...

Re: FLORIDA: Woman’s boyfriend smears feces on her during an argument

At least he didn't call her a ****. You can't come back from that.

Re: what were you doing half a lifetime ago?

I was just finishing my junior year of high school. I was looking forward to a summer of lazing around and beach volleyball. In few months, I would meet my wife.

Re: Diabetes, not obesity, linked to sugar consumption

Fats are never metabolized to simple sugars the way grains are. You can derive energy from fat, but the metabolic pathways are quite different. All carbohydrates lead to some insulin response, with...

Re: Diabetes, not obesity, linked to sugar consumption

I cut sugar and other carbs dramatically in my diet since last July. I'm down 75 lbs. I eat less without feeling hungry. I have more energy. I'm more active, though I'm not working out per se. I...

Re: Vertigo?

I've had bad motion sickness once, which essentially happens the same way as benign positional vertigo. It was the worst I've ever felt in my life. I have a lot of sympathy for people with vertigo.

Re: PBS Masterpiece Classic -- Downton Abbey

Does anyone know if the Christmas special will air in the US? The PBS description for next week on my DirecTV guide looks like a replay of the finale.

Re: Bakery Refuses To Make Same-Sex Marriage Cake

I hold the unpopular view that a business ought to be able to refuse service to anyone for any reason. I don't think there should be protected classes in this regard.

On the other hand, I think...

Re: Airport Layover Question - Help!

I've made many layovers this tight before, but it can be nerve-wracking. I'd avoid checking luggage if at all possible as I've found that really short layovers increase the chance that your luggage...

Re: Post Your Desktop - The Return!

I've been here about a year and a half. I guess I do a fair amount of touristy sightseeing and activities. I like to get around and see as much as I can. I avoid Waikiki like the plague though.

Re: Biggest Loser 2013 - Health and Nutrition edition

I'm 6 months into a low carb diet and down over 60 pounds. I feel great, have lots of energy and I'm never all that hungry. I cook most of my own food from fresh ingredients. I don't see any reason...

Re: Belgian discovers his wife used to be a man after 19 years

Brain scans of various types may show differences between schizophrenics and control subjects. Does this mean schizophrenia isn't a mental problem?

Re: The Fiscal Cliff Thread

Why make tax cuts temporary? Why not set the rate in perpetuity, rather than with an expiration date? It would seem like if you have the votes in Congress at the time, nobody is terribly likely to...

Re: best way to kick your friend out of your house?

I was wondering about this too. Is he still paying rent at his old place? Whose name is on the lease there? Maybe you're not the only one with a squatter. That might explain his difficulty paying...

Re: Casino fles lawsuits after unshuffled cards lead to big winnings for gamblers

If you read the article it says that the casino specifically ordered preshuffled decks. It sounds like the card manufacturer fucked up. I don't see why it took them so long to catch it or how it's...

Wow, I've gotten nothing but excellent service from amazon. That would piss me off. I really miss amazon prime in Hawaii too, I would probably pay double the normal rate if I could get 2 day shipping...
