When a shark bites a human because it thinks the human is a seal must be kind of like when a human bites into an M&M only to find out that it is really a Skittle.

Hmm...probably a bad idea to swim nekkid when there are sharks around. They might want to bite your "bait".

Good news for me, I just found out that I'm getting a raise. I expected to, I've gotten one every year, but it's always nice to know for sure. So 3% extra money for me to do the exact same b*@%$!+@ as always. Whee!!

Thanks for sharing that!

After the dot-boom days of the late 1990s/early 2000s, I got accustomed to raises of 5-15% every year.

Then I joined Global Megacorporation, and was lucky to get 0.5-0.75%. They claim to have "upgraded" so now I'm getting all of 3% a year, and I had no idea how that compared to other industries; seemed pretty chintzy. But seeing a totally different industry giving the exact same raise says, "OK, 3% just isn't so bad."

Wow. I think I weigh quite a bit more than you, and my metabolic rate was 1 drink per 2 hours.

Of course, I'm a wee bit older...

My mother-in-law had me do her taxes for the first couple of years after she was widowed, in spite of my insistence that she'd be a lot better off hiring a CPA. Then she started doing her own taxes, and she was really proud of the independence that gave her (or at least made her feel). I don't know what happened, but this year's taxes were particularly complex, so she finally took our advice and hired a CPA.

And the CPA totally screwed things up and she's under investigation by the IRS.

D'oh!

(And yes, she's dumping it all in the CPA's lap to fix it, but it's still an embarrassment.)

My mom sat each of us down when we turned 16 and showed us how to do our own taxes.

The science of drinking. And hopefully a rough guide of knowing when you've had too much.

Alcohol metabolism rate

website wrote:

Alcohol is metabolized (broken down) by the body at a rate of 0.016% per hour.1 It doesn’t matter if you are 6’4” or 4’6” or if you drank red wine or moonshine.

Size doesn't make a difference.

The Exchange

This isn't quite working the way I expected...if you're looking at the calculations for the science for drinking, I was drinking 200 ml of 28% alcohol peach liqueur.

...I took 3 standard drinks (US Standard) and ended up with a blood alcohol content of 0.102%. Then went off to cook dinner afterwards. Eh - I don't think I had any trouble walking, or speech problems.

Conclusion: Sweetish stuff makes you think its lighter then it is, so if you're not careful, you drink more then you intended to.

My company helps me file my tax, and I'm happy for that since doing the maths would just eat the thoughts out of my head.

Let's just say that any paper published in an industry journal that states that any aspect of the human body does not vary by gender, race, age, physical conditioning, or any other factor is... er... "questionable" in my mind.

Ooh! And I even used a polite word for it and everything!

EDIT: Because let's be blunt: If scientists found ANYTHING that was consistent across all of humanity, it would be major scientific news. "This ONE factor is the same for ALL humans."
The skeptic in me says, "No."

EDIT 2: OK, it's not the original research that's at fault; it's the people who cite it. We have phrases such as, "It is thus demonstrated that a range of apparent linear rates, from as little as 120 mg l−1 h−1 to over 200 mg l−1 h−1, can be seen in a single subject."
So the article says nothing about the rate being constant across humanity. In fact, it says just the opposite.
But I'll believe that they didn't find a correlation between size and alcohol metabolism; your enzymes don't care how big you are. But I would love to see body fat percentage vs. metabolism, because I believe that *is* a factor. But asking someone to gain 40 pounds of fat for a research project just might be considered a teensy bit unethical...

"Read" [red] as in "I already read that" rhymes with "lead" [led] as in "lead is a poisonous metal".

"Read" in case one [reed], therefore, does not rhyme with "lead" in case two [led]. Nor does "read" in case two [red] rhyme with "lead" in case one [leed].

So, even though it's a holiday weekend and I waited until the very last damned minute to try to plan, and even though we started out at number eighteen on the damned waiting list, today we finally got confirmation that we do, in fact, have a reservation at a campground up in gold country for Hermione's birthday weekend. we're driving up on Saturday after ballet class, camping all weekend, and on Monday (her birthday) we'll go down into the California Caverns and do the cave tour before driving back home for cake.
Which means I have to make sure the cake is done before we leave on Saturday. But that's not bad.

*purrs at Kjeldorn* Thanks!

I will probably bum off a corkscrew off the Italian side of the family. They should have one, right? My brother told me to watch out for low quality corks.

15-18: Leaving me alone at home with an unlocked liquor cabinet - perfectly safe. I did not start drinking till I started working, which is after 20. At 15 I'd be busy mugging for cambridge O levels, and from 16-18 I'd be mugging for cambridge A levels.

So nothing would happen.

And I'd get horribly embarrassed at the idea of masturbation. Maybe it's a guy thing?

And watching porn: Simply out of the question.

I even skip all the foreplay scenes as well as the actual scene itself in all the story books I read.
