Thesis: you get more alcohol for your money in frozen margaritas than on the rocks margaritas. Discuss.
I would have argued the opposite. - Meg VMeg
Same, really. - Jennifer Dittrich
My thinking is that they expect lightweight drinkers to choose frozen, so they don't bother. Which is lame. - Meg VMeg
Frozen are usually pre-mixed, right? So they are light on the ratio. - Eric - Back to the Grill

I think Star Trek would've been better off if they had just ignored the discrepancy in Klingon appearance and let fans chalk that up to limited budgets rather than try to work it into the canon.
I still don't understand why they didn't fix the Klingons in The Animated Series. - Victor Ganata
What was the explanation? I never get bothered by that type of thing. New director, new technology, new set designer, = new aesthetic. If I like, I like. If I don't, whatever. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Did they ever explain it? - Eric - Back to the Grill

I'm sure at the time of TAS they hadn't thought of changing their look from TOS. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, good point. I swear I remember reading that Roddenberry was dissatisfied with the Klingon look in TOS, but I guess the current design didn't really come about until TMP. - Victor Ganata
I didn't realize they had actually explained it. I liked Worf's answer in the Tribbles episode: "We don't talk about it." - Betsy

I'm really grateful to have teamed up with a PR guy who pays me on time, validates me & my hard work, and who understands when clients are being daft, unreasonable, or both.
His one liners have earned him the title of Roger Sterling, minus the lascivious nature (thankfully). - Corinne L
I call him today to vent about a client who's making us both loopy. Me: I'm two steps away from quitting. Him: Oh no! Me first! - Corinne L

When you come to me for a referral, but aren't willing to tell me your exact budget, I can't help you. When you ask me to do work for free, I can't help you. When you ignore requests for specific information, forcing me to spend more time tracking down that info rather than doing the work you are actually paying me for, then I just get pissed off.

Holy cats. Brought bathroom scale in to weigh AALL packages. Apparently I've lost 16lbs in past month? Good lord.
And that's after eating Mom's cooking for a week? - sglassme
INORITE? I hope I'm not dying or something. They did have me working a lot in the yard.... but OMG. I haven't weighed this much since my surgery. (Well, I weighed less immediately after, but that didn't count I figured, seeign as I had a couple lbs of organ and tumor removed.) - Sarah G.
(and i haven't even pooped yet today!) - Sarah G.
What floor are you on? You know, weaker gravity and what-not...I know that is a minuscule change, but I can't believe you consumed that cobbler and lost weight. - sglassme
5. I was wondering if being in chicago and fifth floor made that much difference. I guess I'll find out when I get home. - Sarah G.
I have 101 year old wood floors, and I know that when I move my scale 6" from where it typically is, I can have a +/- 2 lb change. To quote Smiley, it is curious. - sglassme
If I go home and it turns out that I've gained weight I am going to be so mad. - Sarah G.
Gained weight relative to this morning, or to last month? You probably have lost some weight due to the Glasmeyer yard work gulag, just probably not 16 lbs. - sglassme
How I know I'm tired: I read a comment on FF and thought "Huh, I've done that." Then realized that it was a comment I'd written myself, not 10 minutes ago... #Zzzzzzz

Why 10% of the Population Hates Cilantro and the Rest Doesn't Know Any Better [Blog post from "Reason I Am Here" by Nacho Caballero] -

Why 10% of the Population Hates Cilantro and the Rest Doesn't Know Any Better [Blog post from "Reason I Am Here" by Nacho Caballero]
From the September 2013 post: "Cilantro tastes like soap to approximately 10% of the people who have had their genotype analyzed by 23andMe. The currently accepted explanation is that those of us who passionately despise cilantro were born with a genetic variant known as a single-nucleotide polymorphism (or SNP, pronounced ‘snip’)." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
I'm assuming that must be true for ginger as well, since I used to have that problem with both (though ginger far worse - it still sometimes crops up when I eat something with a really intense fresh ginger taste.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, I wonder if there's a similar genetic variant somewhere accounting for strong feelings against avocado. - Stephen Mack
Not just a SNP, but a missense mutation ;) #YourMutantSuperpower - Victor Ganata
I figure there are just some foods I won't like (lima beans, oh dear god no) and some that I learn to like (ginger and cilantro after repeated low-level exposure) and some that I just start liking out of nowhere (beets, black coffee.) - Jennifer Dittrich
10% of what population? It's a staple ingredient in Vietnamese, Thai, Cambodian, and Mexican dishes, amongst others. - Professor A.I.
That's an interesting question. The article cops out by just saying "10% of 23andMe customers" (a non-representative sample if ever there was one). This study from Cornell ( was looking at mostly those of European ancestry, but does have results from the subjects from other parts of the world, where it appears that in South Asia, the incidence is only 3.9% compared to 12.4% overall. - Stephen Mack
I'm Mexican and I hate cilantro. I always get mad at myself when I forget to omit it from pho. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
Gabrielle, per you're in an elite group of 8.7% of Latinos for whom cilantro tastes like soap. - Stephen Mack
Jennifer, are you a supertaster? - Stephen Mack
Nope. I just really don't like lima beans. There really aren't too many foods I dislike, or find too strong, honestly. - Jennifer Dittrich
Duck eggs? - Professor A.I.
My friend used to taste soap, but now she doesn't. - Meg VMeg
Stephen, I think soap would taste better. - Gabrielle
I only like coriander. - Akiva
I find that I like coriander and cilantro equally well. Indeed, I can't tell them apart. Wonder why that is? (No, I still don't use emoticons.) - Walt Crawford
I only like organized coriander. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I saw a similar new report on TV about broccoli. The scientists extracted some enzyme from it and had some kids taste it. Most didn't taste anything at all while one kid immediately made a face and yelled 'yuck!' It mentioned the DNA aspect but I clearly remember that little kid. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

10 Tricks to Appear Smart During Meetings — Comedy Corner — Medium
"1. Draw a Venn diagram Getting up and drawing a Venn diagram is a great way to appear smart. It doesn’t matter if your Venn diagram is wildly inaccurate, in fact, the more inaccurate the better. Even before you’ve put that marker down, your colleagues will begin fighting about what exactly the labels should be and how big the circles should be, etc. At this point, you can slink back to your chair and go back to playing Candy Crush on your phone." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"2. Translate percentage metrics into fractions If someone says “About 25% of all users click on this button,” quickly chime in with, “So about 1 in 4,” and make a note of it. Everyone will nod their head in agreement, secretly impressed and envious of your quick math skills." - Andrew C (✔)
The long tail, or 80:20 chart can be substituted if you've used the Venn too recently. :) - Ken Morley

I want a Google Now card suggesting a song I'll really like but haven't heard before, but I don't want Google knowing what I've heard.
Question: Why don't you want Google to know what you've heard? - Louis Gray
They know what I listen to since I use Google Play about 90% of the time. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I just use iTunes for that. I have so much music I have a playlist just for music in my library I've never heard, which stays around 25-30%. - NOT THE CRICKET
Crazy how lemonade makes me thirsty for water.
Is it the citric acid? Pink or raspberry lemonade makes me even thirstier. - Anika
Zulema said she thinks it's because lemons are diuretic. Both sound good to me :-) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I always thought it was the sugar, because sugary things in general make me thirsty. I suppose I shouldn't have assume that, though. - Katy S
Diuretic makes sense too. Coffee and beer make me thirsty for water. - Anika
It really does. - Katy S
I thought it might be sugar too, since I also MUST have water after ice cream. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm that way about coffee. If I drink coffee, I have to drink water directly after. - Akiva
