"Study" has multiple meanings. Most don't refer to science. For instance, to quote from the dictionary:

-application of the mind to the acquisition of knowledge, as by reading, investigation, or reflection
-to apply oneself; endeavor
-to consider, as something to be achieved or devised

I could go on. Using study in this context is meant "to consider or reflect." Notice how I said in the article it was not scientific.

Wow. I guess I'm lucky to have sweet men in my area. I still have men hold the door for me often and open the car door as well. I will hold the door open for anyone, male or female, though. I think it's just good manners.

I noticed the Reeve/Carter resemblance too but since I didn't have definitive info. on that, I iddn't write about it. But it appears to be Reeve's face, absolutely. Carter I wasn't as certain about, bur if Reeve's face was used, it's likely, I would think.

I thought my sarcasm about Atkins being in favor of these was obvious. If not, that was meant to be clear. I agree with your point and that's why I used it as a joke.

Foiled again! Just when I was about to perpetuate the most delicious, carefully planned pizza post ambiguity fraud in modern times, I get the correction I've dreaded my entire career. Now I'll never know how sweet the payoff would have been.

Obviously these items are not a bunch of bachelor apartment basics for $29.99 at Home Depot or in the Ace Hardware catalog. Do you know how many clocks without some or all of their numbers are for sale right now all over the world, and how many more are hanging on the walls of museums, restaurants, salons and spas, modern hotels and homes, etc.? There are a number of people who are always looking for household and other items that are stylish and modernized. You may not be who they're marketing to, but that doesn't mean there isn't a (relatively large) market.

We have that in common, MC. I don't like opossums and do not think they are cute. They scare me. I've been present for stand-offs between opossums and my dog, neither of which had any desire to back down. Also, my friend John was keeping dog food in a plastic container in his garage. It had a scoop in it, and he stuck his hand in to get the scoop. An opossum was inside and bit his hand. It was an awful wound.
