    I've yet to see any good research on what heavy loads of alcohol or drugs or caffeine or nicotine will do to a developing sperm. These studies are long overdue. So, yeah, the recommendations for...

    The thing is, you really can't study the effect of alcohol during pregnancy in a clinical trial--it would be completely unethical to expose developing fetuses to alcohol, knowing that at some point,...

    The problem most likely will not occur with other dishes, because Corelle is basically glass. Most other dishes are stoneware or china/porcelain. Yes, they can break and the pieces will have sharp...

    In the linked article, the real problem is not the electronic record, but the fact that two separate sets of health records are being used. Even if both sets were paper, the same problem could easily...

    The three times I've been called for jury duty, I was rejected twice. My best guess is that when asked if I know any lawyers, my answer is that my brother is a lawyer. That has always started a chain...

    And along with this, I would add that part of living simply for me is so that you have enough to do/own those things that are most important to you. Your house may have only one bathroom, but you...

    A long time ago on another version of these boards, a wise woman wrote:

    You can have anything you want. You just can't have everything you want.

    Those words have really helped me, over time,...

    I have helped two relatives go through their hordes. And I would only do this for someone I care for a whole lot, trust me. And there were times I felt my time was wasted--we just spent an hour and...

    Bae, that's frightening. I've also read that they should have been doing something to flush the pipes that bring water to the houses, to lower the amount of lead in the water, and they simply were...

    It appears the residents were told to boil the water, not because of the lead, but because E. coli had been found in the water. That, of course, just made the lead problem worse.

    It looks like Flint has curbside recycling pickup. https://www.cityofflint.com/public-works/sanitation-2/

    One thing I noticed when visiting various parts of Europe is just how extensive the public transportation system is. I could take a train to a major city, but the train station might be on the...

    Your house, your rules.

    But your adult daughter has the right to decide that she doesn't want to meet your rules, and to just stay home if she wants to.

    The issue with Craigslist in my area at least is that everyone expects everything listed there to be a bargain. No matter how low you price stuff, you get offers for 50% of that amount.
