Re: Easy Foods for Weight Gain

This is exactly why it confused me. It sounded like a perfect prescription in a context of "America has an obesity problem, lets find ways to gain weight that don't risk obesity." However, it sounded like obesity is the very last thing Anianna's kiddo is dealing with. In fact, it may be a stomach(?...

Re: Easy Foods for Weight Gain

Just adding some input based on my weight lifting/baking hobbies: the diet's the doctors have prescribed, with the fish, lean meats, wholemeal breads and whatnot is a high protein diet typically used in bodybuilding/powerlifting routines. Which also surprises me why woodsghost hasn't heard of these ...

Re: Get your teeth fixed!!!

So why do root canals (with crowns, sure) cost an excess of $1000 there? Even without insurance my root canal was €280 (no crown, though.) Surely that translates to $350 or something, but what the heck?

Re: London trip

I greatly enjoyed Westminster Abbey (very pretty statues) and Notting Hill (Portobello Road Market). I can definitely reccomend those. Do try to find out what day the actual market is at Portobello Road Market, because that's when it's most fun.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Everything is going to plan... Both sides are convinced that somehow an election will resolve the deadlock by handing one party the trifecta and make the choices clearer. Of course, it is very unlikely to do either. Or: neither side want to make the tough decision since that means they won't get el...

Re: Bloomberg: Jobs crisis could spark riots here (in USA)
