Many fruits have lots of carbs, and some are high glycemic, but they're a lot better than cookies, cakes or pies. If you buy aren't totally low carb an own ice cream maker, you can make fruit sorbets and if you like them especially sweet, use a sugar substitute to sweeten. I also add about 1/4 tsp k...

If X is a person, then X should legally be a person, Two points: 1) The previous is nothing more than a statement of your opinion. 2) The precise definition of "legal person" will affect an individuals opinion about whether a particular "person" ought to be a "legal person." (For example: I don't t...

Actually, "the unborn clearly are not legal persons" is not completely true. The unborn do have some legal standing with regards to battery/murder in the US. Not in the states where I live. :) In any case, they have no right to enter contracts, vote, own property, nor rights of citizenship. So, the...

Interesting - so now the question is why do you have that opinion? I think most libertarians would disagree with you, in that it's reasonable to be 100% in favor of individual liberty, and to also have an opinion recognizing that the unborn count as individuals capable of liberty. Uhmmm... silly. P...

Maybe the foam doesn't fall out? I don't paint my toenails so I can't say for sure whether they have advantages relative to toilet paper.

For what it's worth, should you ever need toe separators for any reason, they can be had much more cheaply than from the link provided above. Foam ones (even those with cute little cartoon duck heads for each toe) are easily less than $1 for a full set. Even the fancy gel ones can be had relatively ...

What?! They look very useful. They can keep your toes apart while you wait for nail polish to dry.

Three months of pain that keeps you from doing your regular lifting routine? Sounds like a good time to see a both a physician and a physical therapist.

Was it hurting before you resumed lifting? Are you saying you jumped back in doing repetitions to failure after doing no lifting for 3 months?

A "legal person" is a person as recognized by society's legal system. Thanks for the definition. Now it's easier to identify the precise way in which you have confused yourself. If your really mean this definition, then: a) an unborn child is obviously not a legal person because it's not recognized...

Both of you seem to have a bad habit of assuming nefarious intent in discussions - it has an unfortunate impact. I didn't say or think your intent was nefarious. I think you have confused yourself and are creating nonsense questions. Some contain oxmorons. Some are circular. But I don't think you r...

Re: Healthy Running phylosophy

1. No weather is good weather for running Love it! I'd say "Air conditioning plus a strong fan aimed straight at me is less bad weather for running." I know lots of runners say they like to run outside. The charm of running in -10F, freezing rain, 80F are all lost on me. Dodging traffic and breathi...
