"Herbal cleanses" do not "remove toxins" from your body or really do much else, except probably give you the runs. The idea that your body is full of "toxins" (always nebulous and ill-defined) is silly. That's what your liver is FOR.

That's not to say you shouldn't eat less junk, all of us should. But the problem is usually that people aren't cooking for themselves, they're eating pre-made garbage from the supermarket. Eat some fruit and make dinner every night. That's how you eat more healthily.

SAD needs to get his hands on cheap Cialis (Tadalafil) from India. Cialis has the advantage over Viagra of leaving your body more slowly so the effects last for a few days. This means you aren’t “wasting” a pill when you can still get benefits from it a day or two later. It makes sex more spontaneous.

Also, generic Cialis from India is just a dollar or two a pill. India’s drug manufacturing industry is well regulated and reliable. The last time I bought them from www.genericdoctor.com I paid $150 for 150 20 mg pills. It's more per pill if you purchase fewer. It arrived from Delhi in about 10 days in a hand addressed envelope.

What a douchebag. "publish and iterate?" What does he even mean? That's a stupid phrase. he thinks he's saying something deep and profound and he just sounds like a dumdum.

Excellent answer. I'd add one thing. If you're stymied by this, go get some therapy to help you sort out the issues you're dealing with. Find someone who's experienced in dealing with sexual orientation issues and isn't going to shame you (don't be afraid to therapist shop and tell them why you're coming to see them). Good luck!

Dude. Seriously. Chill.

Don't hold grudges. Ever. Not in romantic relationships, not in platonic and family relationships. They're toxic. And they only end up hurting you.

It was one of the lessons I learned early on in my current 11 year, and going strong, adventure with a wonderful man. If you forgive someone, mean it.

In most of the country the only place to get half decent coffee is Starbucks. So they're stuck. HA! :-)

Everyone should listen to this Planet Money episode on.......Why the dow is stupid and why it's meaningless.

No serious economist thinks about the Dow, looks at the Dow or uses the Dow to do anything.

Hate to break it to you, but "gift" as a verb has been around for 400 years.

"The use of gift as a verb is not new, at least according to the Oxford English Dictionary, which lists examples of gift used to mean to make a present of from as early as the 17th century."


"Incidentally, there is a second, less controversial verb sense of gift: namely, to bestow with gifts, the gifts here being talents, skills, powers, and other positive qualities. The word in this sense usually appears in the participial form—e.g., “She is gifted with great musical ability.”"

As with many things grammatical, it's another case of young people needing to get off your lawn.
