Funny, the stereotype I've always heard is that Chinese eat cats and Koreans eat dogs. Of course, that's regional, anecdotal, and doesn't happen enough to make a difference in the population of pets.

Corned beef is still opened with a key. Corned beef hash is just corned beef with potatoes added, usually sold at the same price. I just add my own potatoes (and onions). And corned beef is great for homemade soup! You can't say that about Spam.

I can tell you from decades of experience that rinsing your dishes is crucial if they aren't going to be washed in the dishwasher immediately. Dried-on food doesn't come off in most dishwashers. But if you've just had a big meal and run the washer immediately afterward, they'll be okay. My family uses dishes more than once a day, and the dishwasher is only run once a day, so we MUST rinse, or at least soak them.

That makes sense for fish, since they have to be canned near the point of origin, versus vegetables that can be transported easier than fish. I wonder if the same holds true for corned beef and spam, which have distinctively odd-shaped cans. Or is that just tradition?

They managed to select the one gross item from each country's cuisine. If you are traveling in Asia, it's pretty easy to avoid the one gross item and eat like a pig otherwise.

My hair color changes every 4-5 months, but it's no surprise. I pay for that change. Still, the underlying natural color has gone from light blonde as a baby to dark blonde as an adult to mostly white now.

These would-be thieves made several mistakes.
1. They didn't have guns. In Texas!
2. They tried to rob a guy who already deposited the money in the bank.
3. They certainly picked the wrong store.

Oh yeah, the things you look for in a partner change considerably as you mature. The qualities I looked for in a husband at twenty were laughable compared to the few but crucial requirements I had the last time I got married at age 50.

What do you wanna bet that this list grows with every woman he interacts with? Wait until he contacts a woman who has her own requirement: "Don't message me if you have a long list of mostly petty deal breakers."

Sigh. I knew this would happen, as it does in so many threads about having children. It's such a monumental life choice that people who are parents and people who decide never to be parents both feel the need to defend their choice, when that decision is completely personal.

The truth is, some folks were born to be parents and reap great rewards from it; while others never want to be parents, and are completely satisfied without children. Then there are plenty of people in situations somewhere in between, including those who decided later that they made the wrong decision. Let's just be civil about it and refrain from attacking each other.

Or even sooner...

Ring ring
You: Hello
Your grown kid: Mom! What do I do? These kids won't settle down, and I haven't had a decent night's sleep in weeks!
You: Ha! Enjoy your payback.
