“It's also possible that the first split of the egg made two and then only one of the pair made a split creating three, but in the end you're probably correct too and the fact is no one will ever know for sure.
I spend years as a sonographer (ultrasound) and had been taught that if babies come in their own sac then they are fraternal as multiples. Now they know that it depends when the embryos do that extra split so now you can have what looks like fraternal twins, et al, on ultrasound, genetically turn out to be really be identical.”

“I have been curious about that myself because some have their own placenta as well even though they are still identical. Even some fraternal twins look identical. I haven't researched it that much but mothers of twins often tell me what the doctors told them despite evidence to the contrary. It is an amazing phenomena.”
“I had to laugh at some cooking show on TV and I can't remember whose now, but they were all thrilled they thought they invented something by adding beets to make red velvet. Hate to tell you honey but that is where true red velvet came from. Now it is just red food coloring and cake.”
“Off topic a bit, but the only thing I've used my potato ricer for is to squeeze the liquid out of thawed chopped spinach. So much easier, faster, neater, and drier! You also don't end up with bits of spinach in your laundry.”

“wow, that is a great idea, using the ricer for spinach. I will have to try this.”
“For $700 check for two you better have been given some stock in the company. some of the 'good' furniture, or a multi-carat diamond with you dinner mint!!!”

“That's pretty typical for a high end meal in Chicago. Tru, Alinea, etc. will run you about that for a tasting menu for 2 with wine pairings.
That's why I nitpick on service. Our experience wasn't bad, but pretty inexcusable for the price. We had asked for a wine substitution in that evening's pairings. At the end of the meal, we were given a souvenir copy of the menu and wine pairings. When we subbed wine at Charlie Trotters, Charlie himself gave us the empty wine bottle so we had a record of what he had drank. Tru wrote a new custom menu for us to take. At Graham Elliot's, we asked if the menu reflected our change (not a request, just a question), got a surly "no" and the waiter stomped off.
It's little details like that where you think, "Wow, I just spent $700 on a single meal" instead of "Wow, what a wonderful evening we spent celebrating a birthday/anniversary/job promotion".”

“I hadn't planned to watch this version since I'm not a kid kind of person, but my DVR had other ideas since it was Master Chef. I was hooked and amazed by what these kids were doing and that the challenges were not watered down for them. I ended up actually enjoying it more because it wasn't as cut-throat and insulting as the adult version. I want to see what they do with the challenge and the food. I'm not at all interested and often irritated by the arguing (ie the last season of the adult version for those who watched it with the one bully b****h so full of herself and couldn't get along with anyone. To me that said she was really the most insecure.) I was disappointed too that they kicked Jack out when he did a great job. I was thinking they needed a death match between he and Dara instead.”

“True. But Jack was one of the youngest. I hope he gets to come back next season and win.”

“To those knocking Bart's comments read the top of his comment again. He is referring to the comments section not the article itself! Bravo Barts for saying what a lot of us think as we read reactionary comments to just about any food article anymore. Sarcasm appreciated by one at least.”
“The answer is no if you read this ridiculous article all the way through. It says, "While each student would be required to get into an institution of higher education, they would not be obligated to attend, explains Trani in the proposal. He also explains that the requirement could not stop a student from graduating, as all Oregon high school graduates are eligible for spots at local community colleges, as long as they apply."
So why would you make a suppsed 'REQUIREMENT' which to me by definition means it is 'REQUIRED' and then say but it could not stop a student from graduating. So then it IS NOT required. Makes no sense.”

“And who is going to pay the application fees for these colleges? Why should a student who is interested in joining the service, helping the family business or learning a trade have to pay money to a college they're not going to go to, just so they can get a diploma they've already earned after 12 years of education?
And if they're not required to attend the college, why force them to apply in the first place?
There are so many ethical and logical flaws in this policy that it's not even funny.”
“Plus for some reason the few shows that are about cooking, the Cooking channel decided to throw in the overpowering music on those shows so it nearly drowns out the host/hostess even on their retreads. Why that is necessary when it wasn't part of the FNW format defeats me and has me turning it off.”
“Put Tyler Florence back in a kitchen and get him off this stupid stuff like food truck competitions. I've ready how and why he got off the celebrity chef food track/fame after his shows were dropped to concentrate more on his family, but Tyler, really? Food trucks? Better not at all than use your time on terrible stuff as that.”
“Oh come on now, really? That's all you 'think' you got out of the story? Sheesh! She probably has Asian ancestry. It sounds like it with a first name of Toy. Nothing I saw indicates things one way or another or it simply could be the shape of her eyes made more pronounced because she is smiling.”
“"If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?"
The question really isn't about the restaurants themselves it is all about the 'buzz score' which is more about the press and advertising. That's why the top five are all big named places. So I assume then if that was your criterion for evaluating and giving your scores to the restaurants if polled, then you'd downgrade those with poor press on that issue.”
“How is this 'new' video format when you took it away and are simply putting it back for all the complaints about it. I too skipped the video and hoped someone put the pertinent part of stories in their comments or I moved on. Now can you work on perhaps improving the quality of the writing?”
“I see it as the Food Network/Cooking Channel using this as an excuse really since they've been chopping back their programs for some time now anyway and running marathons of old shows, which hers will be too, rather than doing truly new programming of regular cooking shows. They should really rename it as the Bobby Flay station.”
“Rather sad on the late Brittany Murphy is that they took away one of her distinguishing features with the removal of the under eye shape to no shape or shadow at all. It's like photo-shopping out the mole on Cindy Crawford's face. It's that unsubtle and does not enhance Brittany's appearance.”
Rodney S Johnson on Jun 16, 2013 at 14:32:54
“I said the same thing, when I scrolled to her picture! The under eye bags on her, where her defining look and with that photo-shopping... it was like they lite weight, removed her identity from the picture.”

“LOVE Brittany Murphy! Totally agree - those cute little bags under her eyes were part of what was so sweet about her. She was a beautiful girl and did not need "fixing"...”
