In fact, that is the case. There are discounts for being relatively healthy, and severe penalties for being overweight or a smoker. At least that's true for the health insurance through my job.

Probably a weather buoy that came loose during Sandy and finally came ashore.

I'm trying tofu for the first time tonight. It's currently marinating in a crazy concoction I thought up of beef stock, soy sauce, oyster sauce, ginger, garlic, onion, green onion, toasted sesame seed and five spice. Gonna stir fry it with a bunch of veggies and put it over rice or udon. Hopefully it tastes as good as it smells.

how is mcdonalds not doing a ‘do the shamrock shake’ viral marketing initiative? it could be as easy as showing 1 shamrock shake at an empty macdonalds, then when the harlem shake part starts, showing like 7000 shamrock shakes at the same restaurant?

All the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911.

That sounds fantástico.

There's no such thing as soy milk, it's soy juice.

It was an easy guess. It couldn't be old, because the rope was in too good and clean shape, so it was probably wasn't an anything from WWII or earlier. Considering there hasn't been any eastern seaboard Naval activity since then - save for drills - it wasn't military related. Civilians wouldn't really have markings like that, and there'd be a news article about a ship big enough to have that on board going down.

All that was left was a weather buoy - because the channel markers in NJ are red and green.

Not a huge fan of tofu but have had it and tried it a few times...tofu takes on the taste of whatever you're making and that concoction sounds amazing!

So on the bus to work today, some black woman shoved me for getting in her face and hit me with her umbrella getting off. Another guy watched this and said that she was entitled cause she's black. There was a lot of uncomfortable passengers to say the least.

Bus driver then tells me he'll be doing the route again Thursday and he's got my back and will watch the woman if she's unruly or anything. I'm just trying to get to work

It is very easy to trigger a fight-or-flight response in certain places out of some people.

Some people have a strange set of rules and circumstances for what constitutes being disrespected.
