How food manufacturers calculate "serving size": divide product until fat/sodium/sugar/etc are acceptable "per serving".
Ain't that the truth! - Spidra Webster
I had a 3:2 rectangle pan of frozen lasagna. Serving size of 7. How the hell do you slice it up to make seven slices? Seven very thin slices? I don't think so. I think we made it for 6 servings or so. - Joe

Happy anniversary :-) - Marina's Godmother :-) from Android
Why is it called that? - Joe
Because it's the term used for the return of the date on which something significant happened. Like a birthday. Which, technically, is also an anniversary. Guess it has something to do with "anno", the year. :-P Also, thanks, Helen! - Uli from Android
No silly. The foggy river valley! - Joe
Oh, that. It's not. But it *was* foggy below us as you might be able to see. - Uli from Android

So this happened.

She is very cuddly and incredibly curious. She also seems to thoroughly enjoy chicken! She is still going through some gastro issues that she's had for the past week, but I am confident it will pass soon. - Chris Topher
I can't wait to meet her. - Heather
Oh! Basic info: Her given name is Trinket, she is 5 months old, quite small for her age, and quite the talkative kitty...and is OBSESSED with sneaking into the bathroom o.0 - Chris Topher
The bathroom is where that revolving scratching veil is. - Spidra Webster
She is battling diarrhea at the moment. The adoption center gave us some bland food to mix with some regular food. Since we got her home around 3, she has had it 3 times so far. Does anyone have any tips/tricks for us until she gets better? - Chris Topher
A layer of newspaper in the bottom of the litter box will make it easier to clean, and until she gets better, you will have to clean it very frequently, so don't put that much litter on top of the newspaper. - April Russo
Thanks April! - Chris Topher

A good topic to research, if possible, would be “why people don’t vote.” Nonvoting is very high, roughly 50 percent, even in presidential elections—much higher in others. The attitudes of people who don’t vote are studied. First of all, they mostly identify themselves as Democrats. And if you look at their attitudes, they are mostly Social... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

My grandfather passed away 20 years ago this November. At his wake, my family had blown up a bunch of pictures of him to display, and there was one picture from when he was in his 20s that looked EXACTLY like me. My grandmother walked up to me and said, "It's amazing, isn't it? And now you know what you will look like when you're dead, too!"
She also pranked the funeral home director: "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU EMBALMED HIM? I DIDN'T WANT HIM EMBALMED? Just kidding!" - Zamms
You have quite the grandmother! - lris
Yeah, she's pretty fantastic. When she turned 80 she told everyone she reached the age of integrity so she could now say exactly what she thought about everything. I never noticed the difference. - Zamms
Ha! - lris from Android
Can I like this thread more than once? - Catherine Pellegrino
I love your grandmother. - laura x from iPhone
my first-cousin-once-removed is 81, and she's like that. She crosses the street wherever she wants saying, "they're going to stop - they won't hit an old lady." - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

Idle thought as I was ripping out turf and listening to music, when "Old Friends" came up: "Gee, Paul Simon can't be that much younger than I. Will he really find it terribly strange to be 70?" (for me, that's a year from now). Turns out he's nearly four years older than I am, so he's been feeling terribly strange since October 2011...
[Probably beaten to death in the popular media back then; I don't keep up with that stuff very well.] - Walt Crawford
I don't find it terribly strange to be 38, but when I'm with my friend I've known since we were 4, I often think it is terribly strange that we are now both so much older and have children (and one of hers is in high school!). - laura x
When we are 70, we'll have known each other for 66 years. - laura x
Not at all related, or maybe it is: Last Saturday's "Asbury Follies"--a low-key thing at my brother's church--included "When I'm 94," sung by a man to his wife, the man considerably closer to 94 than to 64. Quite lovely, actually... - Walt Crawford
Also, now I'm listening to all of Simon & Garfunkel in chronological order and feeling oddly nostalgic for high school. - laura x
Odd opinion formed because of alphabetic song playing sequence: When it comes to dissing dull small towns, I think Garth Brooks' "Nobody Gets Off In This Town" wins over S&G's "My Little Town." Although the latter is certainly more dramatic, the former's funnier & more pointed. (I like them both.) - Walt Crawford

Laura: I am on flickr and 500px — http://www.flickr.com/photos... https://500px.com/amitp — but I try to share photos with my friends on FriendFeed first :-) - Amit Patel
For example the northern harrier I took on Sep 28, shared with FF on Sep 30, and put on flickr on Oct 8. I don't interact with the flickr or 500px communities much :( - Amit Patel
We're happy to see your photos here. :) - Anne Bouey
Oh nice how do like the EM-1? I'm still using the original EM-5. - Rodfather from Android
Are you using a 3rd party lens with an adapter for those telephoto shots? Oh never mind. It's the 75-300mm lens. Amazing shots. - Rodfather
Beautiful. - Jenny H. from Android
Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray

Had my annual performance review today.

The bad news is they gave me more work. Wait, that's not so bad. Also, more vacation time. And something about a bonus. - Steven Perez from Android

Rather unexpectedly got offered a job today, now I just have to hope that the physical therapy works well enough that I will be able to do the job without screwing over the whole kitchen. I'm going to be in charge of desserts for a new restaurant! Working with my favorite co-worker ever!
I'm excited to somewhat have my own "kingdom" creatively speaking. I didn't even apply for this job, just went to meet the executive chef (my former co-worker, close friend, and on-again-off-again (currently on) roommate is the sous chef & had recommended me as pastry chef). He was like, "yeah, we'll work around that [injuries], it's about the right fit... based on this conversation, I want you for the job, just gotta check on salary with the owners." - Lo
I was "..... what?" I didn't even get to wear my interview suit! WHAAAAAAAAAAA. I'm afraid of not being able to pull my weight, but I know the universe playing a trump card when I see it. It's usually smarter than me, so we'll follow this rabbit hole and see where it takes us, eh? - Lo
Sometimes that's all you can do ^ - Steve C Team Marina
Thanks, I need to be reminded :) - Lo
Opening slated for November 7. It's been pushed back a few times, which was lucky for me! - Lo
The executive chef has a science background, too (geology). And he thinks the job has to be fun, and stay fun. The owners aren't sinking everything into this, so there is less pressure to perform financially. They really wanted women in the kitchen, at least one, which worked in my favor. Their menu is focused on local but the main emphasis is deliciousness (you'd be surprised how often that's NOT the key issue in food prep). Overall a super awesome environment. The only downside is early mornings - Lo
There, I think that's all the good stuff. Gotta love how no matter how long I go without posting here, it's my FIRST STOP with news. I didn't even tell my family yet lol - Lo
Congrats, Lo! We'd love to see pics of your creations. :) - Anne Bouey
Great news! - Janet from FFHound!
Very cool, Lo. Very cool! - Bette Cooper
Congratulations! - bentley from FFHound(roid)!

Had a fantastic weekend in SF with my Burner friends -- Hot Buttered Rum at the Independent on Friday night, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass on Sat then DJ Dan at Mighty for a friend's birthday party, and then Hardly Strictly Bluegrass again on Sunday, including a close-out set from the incomparable Emmylous Harris. - Stephen Mack
Amazing lineup this year: http://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/2014... -- if there's a better free music festival in the world than this, I'd like to know about it. - Stephen Mack
I REALLY wanted to go this year because the lineup was fucking phenomenal, but I couldn't find anyone to go with me and I didn't feel like braving it all alone. Especially bummed that I missed Emmylou, Dawes, and Conor Oberst. :( - Hookuh Tinypants
Awww, sorry Hookuh. Plan on joining me next year! - Stephen Mack
I will! :D Between this and Burning Man, I'm going to stick to you like a bad habit. - Hookuh Tinypants
Awesome! :) - Stephen Mack
We ended up seeing Willie Watson, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, Mavis Staples (!!!), and Reckless Kelly on Saturday. On Sunday it was Ralph Stanley, Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn (amazing), Lake Street Dive (really great, hadn't heard of them before), and Emmylou Harris. A lot of the performances can be streamed from http://www.hardlystrictlybluegrass.com/2014... - Stephen Mack
You got to see some really great stuff. Lucky bum. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
