“Gosh. We should torture all republicans because only then will they know how cruel and ineffective it is. Then deny then healthcare and make them work or minimal wage. If that's what it takes and based on Beck's response, it does work”
“I want one. Anything to make the experience of breathing more natural. And it looks way cool. So what Oxylane is the parent company giving it's child an award. It's good design and ergonomically sensible. What's not like? There are always detractors.”
“Oats. Keep. Add them to your yogurt. Nuts. Keep. Particularly almond, cashews, pistachios, and walnut (just don't eat too much). Butter. Cut down. Add a bit in veggies. Cheeses. Cut way back or throw out.”
“Let's face it. The industrialization of food has done harm to what and how we eat. Even if you don't eat out, what you are getting in the supermarket has declined in quality if you can't afford organic. Even organic is not always "organic". Tasteless antibiotic filled chicken meat. Mislabel fish. Manufactured sauces with preservatives and other unwanted chemicals. It's about time to go as local as possible and be choosier in the foods we select. The upscale casual food (still fast food) isn't that much better but it's marketing says so. Lucky for citizens of Singapore, that our food safety thresholds are high and most people still have a connection to the food chain. In chinese, we say the animals name. Pig meat, cow meat. Not pork or beef. We see fish whole and heads on the chicken. OK some still like the pigs head. We grow veggies using hydroponics and have vertical farms. Fish farmer is very regulated as is water quality.
But chains like RL are suffering for the same reasons the malls are. The middle class has shrunken due to income equality. Gentrification of urban areas is the same. Landlords get more rent from pricier up scale establishments. Main street is emptying. There are mini rodeo drives cropping up everywhere. And you'll see less and less families and more and more singles and couples. Forget about grandma and grandpa with their grandkids.
Progress looks good but it doesn't feel so great!”
“why do some folks think that just because you wait, crime related to MJ use will rise? Will it go from flat and accelerate? Maybe we should being seeing a decrease in alcohol related deaths? Even hate related crimes. The only kind of crime that may increase are hate based one's founded on ideology and that being that smoking ganja is morally wrong.
When it starts to hurt the alcohol industry is when the real fight may begin.”

“Capturing the moment in a tech distorted (biased) 2D perspective vs being in the moment. My wife and I sometimes lament the fact that we didn't take a lot of photos or videos on our holidays with our young twins. I guess we were too wrap up in the moment to think about taking photos! What great memories of what was actually happening without remembering the shot and what took to get it.”
“This is all great advertising fodder for upcoming elections. I love it!
However, facts are only for rationalist as republicans only need to believe. Facts or truths do not matter. It will only be twisted and contorted to fit their world view.

“Depends on the kind of work you do. In sales where you are constantly on the phone, a cubicle with sound isolation is a must. If you have to focus, then a cubicle will help for some. Others may not need it. Offices can be shared and scheduled for use. Blanket statements like "It's really kind of sad when people look back fondly at cubicles", is odd and without context.”

“Not easy to find organic fruits and veggies in Singapore and it's very expensive when you can find it. Must resort to washing with vinegar solution or very dilute detergent and thorough rinsing. Also avoid China products”
