    Actually, Dook, plants CAN communicate, and therefore we should kill them “humanely” before we eat them, same as we should do with animals… which we don’t (unless they’re “free range” or kosher).

    Yes, peeling a carrot IS skinning it alive, just as boiling a potato can’t be pleasant for the potato… but I expect it will be the same for a lobster, and we have to eat.

    And btw, “legumes” canNOT be translated as “let go of me”, even loosely, I don’t know where you got that. “Legumes” HAS translated into English to mean something else, as it often happens.

    Thinking computers are the stuff of science-fiction (and therefore, the future), but psychotic computers are the stuff of horror flicks… and perhaps the future. Oy vey.

    He’s actually right, you know.

    I had motion sickness – not in an extreme way, but enough that it was bothersome. Especially since I love reading and, before I had a vehicle, public transportation was boring to tears and one of the few places where I had the time to read. And I couldn’t do it because it nauseated me.

    I trained myself out of it by reading and forcing myself to tolerate the nausea until I was ready to puke. Lo and behold, I gained a few minutes every day. Until I could read in the bus and subway without a problem. Woo-hoo, it works!

    Yeah, well, one of MY pet peeves is people who make it look like anything but the American usage is uncouth, untowardS and dead wrong.

    Toward = American spelling
    Towards = British spelling.

    And perfectly good English, thank you – IF you don’t mind. Sheesh.

    So we like to comment on what we enjoy. Yeah, so? Entertainment is part of life. If you don’t know that, you ought to take your own advice. Duh.

    I would have had Nate say “He didn’t get his news worse than I got mine – at least Jenny still likes him!”

  9. Lise Brouillette commented on Big Nate over 1 year ago

    Not worse than Nate’s had been!

    I hate it when they “update” a site and we only get a new set of problems.
