Good luck. No point really, as everything degrades rapidly into arguments....
Maybe we can change their hearts, one by one.  A grassroots campaign for more civilized posts.  A groundswell of support for debating issues and not personalities.  Yes, we can.

C'mon - she's at one of the best cooking schools in the area - so no fakies allowed.  I'm controlling myself (for now).  Good thing we have company for a few days to alleviate the "burden."

^ From my understanding, not much. You treat them much like any other windowsill plant, and they'll give off a little stevia each year--enough for a mild coffee habit, at least.

Of course, my understanding is gained from Internet sources. I'll know more when the seed company drops the hundred-page stevia manual at my doorstep.

Splenda is the better sounding of the two.  Sure, Stevia IS the better sweetener, but it souds like a social disease.

Personally, I prefer Honey.


Oh, and cleveland,  three weeks.


Four to go into a glucose-induced coma.

Chlorine will make one blind.  Maybe you meant Eye Wash?   ;D
After seeing something like that, you'll wish you were blind.  Fortunately, I missed it but the description alone is enough to haunt my nightmares.

Fwiw, it didn't offend me, and I didn't think it "obscene," I was mostly joking around  ;D

I've seen worse, much worse.  Some people on the Net have a sick sense of humor and think everyone else should share it.  :p  A couple of months ago, a friend of mine got spammed with all sorts of perverted pictures because of something he posted on a message board.  It's ridiculous.

Completely unrelated, but your avatar makes me think of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam


"...I resolve daily that at dusk I shall repent
For a night with a cup full of wine spent.
In the presence of flowers, my resolve simply went
In such company, I only regret that I ever resolved to repent...."

Oh give me a street,
Where they sell real fresh meat,
And apparment with smells of the fray.

Where seldom is heard,
The sweet chirp of a bird,
'Cause most likely it's on the lunch tray.

The Washington Redskins are now 0-10 when they play games on November 16 after losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

There was a tie between the Philadelphia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals.  The last NFL regular season tie was in 2002.  There are no tie games during the playoffs.

Of course not!  I watched one NFL playoff game in the mid 80's that went to a second overtime because of that rule.  Very long game, since NFL overtime is no Kansas Plan.

Here is the aforementioned game:

The New York Jets were largely in control of this game, and after a Freeman McNeil 25 yard touchdown, giving the Jets a 20-10 lead with 4:14 left in the game, the "Dog pound" in Cleveland Stadium became a dour place.
In a January 2, 1987 article, the New York Times identified Mark Gastineau as "the Jet who must make the big play on defense." On the Browns next drive, Gastineau did made the big play - a roughing the passer penalty on 3 and 24; a costly penalty, giving the Browns a valuable first down. Browns Quarterback Bernie Kosar turned that opportunity into a 68-yard scoring drive.
The Jets went three-and-out in their next possession, setting up a final drive for the Browns. With seven seconds left in regulation, a 37-yard pass play from Kosar to Receiver Webster Slaughter set up the game tying field goal by Mark Moseley.
After the Jets punted on their first overtime possession, the Browns drove to the Jets' 5 yard line, where despite the apparent sure victory, Moseley missed a 23-yarder wide right.
After a series of punts shared between the teams, Kosar again led the Browns on a 60-yard drive, ending the game two minutes, two seconds into the second overtime on a 27-yard field goal.
In that game, Kosar set post season records for completions, attempts, and passing yards.

Besides the 2008 Baltimore Ravens, has a team ever lost in the same year to teams quarterbacked by brothers?  So, a team would have to lose to the Indianapolis Colts (QB'ed by Peyton Manning) and the New York Giants (QB'ed by Eli Manning) in the same year?
