    A power outlet that isn't in use is not the same as an appliance that is sitting there plugged in all the time, though. Also, any outlets in a wet environment should be ground fault ones, not just a...

    This is my understanding, also - some transpeople I know have had hormones, but don't want to do any kind of surgery because the surgical procedures just aren't really 'there' yet and they don't want...

    I think one thing to keep in mind is that as much as society likes to say that gender identity is binary (you're male or female, period) it really isn't - and people do not always stay in the same...

    Why is this such a difficult concept for people to grasp? I don't get it at ALL. Like, just the idea of having an animal that I am responsible for and not being able to afford reasonable and...

    I think it depends partly on the scenario also. If I was aware of a pattern of abusive behavior I would probably do my very best to get video evidence before stepping in (if I felt like I could step...

    We usually get our dogs vaccinated for lepto as needed before going on our annual summer camping trip due to the risk of the dogs drinking out of puddles and the like. (This is in OH and PA.) I'm not...

    Yup. The trick to storing guacamole in the fridge or freezer without it turning brown is excluding air contact - which means I put it in a bowl and then put a piece of plastic wrap on the bowl, but I...

    I seriously actually want some Chipolte (or at least some Trader Joe's Guacamole) thanks to this thread, but I have some stupid stomach bug and am stuck with bland and boring food like applesauce.
