Meat: get a ThermaPen instant read thermometer and cook meats to 120 for rare, 125 for med rare and 135 for medium. Pull the meat off heat 5 d before it hits you desired temp.

I'm 59 and I went gradually in the last 15 years from barely being able to sit cross legged to now I can't even touch my right toe (chronic groin problem) let alone sit cross legged.

Don't need the homeless. You can pluck a hair, donate your blood, or even take a plug of your foreskin if you have one, to generate the neural stem cells from iPSC, the cell type they use in this process.

Humans are basically just another massive asteroid hitting earth. And just as mindless.

If you read the arstechnica article Google is correcting these errors on the fly so the search results can change rapidly.

Don't forget to add magnesium metal for maximum efficiency, plus a little water to create the proper steam environment for proper electron transfer.

K, riffing on rain. Sorry, on a tangent, but this will work for me:

Purple Rain" by Prince "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" by Creedence Clearwater Revival "Rain" by The Beatles "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" by Bob Dylan "Here Comes the Rain Again" by Eurythmics "I Can't Stand the Rain" by Ann Peebles "Rainy Night in Georgia" by Brook Benton "Rain King" by Counting Crows

Only one missing is the REM song.

Ok. This is a perfect start to a playlist. I've never heard the Ann Peebles song.

One of mine is when I finish wrapping my hair up tightly in the towel to dry after washing, I whack the towel where it's tucked in, kind of like encouragement to stay tucked for the duration, kinda like a coach does when sending the kids onto the playing field.

Hi folks, I thought I'd create some content and share some experience and learning around any concerns I had about being childfree in my first 10 years after my tubal. I hope this can help those that are at this stage now.

I will say that 35 years after my tubal, I realized in retrospect, somewhere during that time, that I knew in my teens I didn't want kids. I did go through a period, soon after my tubal at 24, of about 10 years where a lot of my friends tried to pressure me into either spending a ton of time with their kids or even adopt, where I wondered if I really wanted kids cuz I liked babies under 6 months of age. It wasn't until I got close to someone and her newborn, where I spent plenty of time with her kid over the next 3 years and she was TOTALLY accepting of my decision and NEVER pushed an agenda. I finally realized I truly lost interest in the kid after about 6 months of age and knew I wasn't interested, not because I was pushing back against acquaintances who were pushing their own agenda in opposition to mine, but because I JUST LOST INTEREST. It took a good, secure in their parenthood, friend to let me understand there was zero interest on my part.

As it turns out what I like about babies was the oxytocin hit from carrying them around, which I learned I could get from cats and small dogs, of which I have 2 now, and they stay small forever instead of just 6 months!
