  1. Big Macs are not the same in every country. U.S., Canada and Mexico (among many other) each have their own Big Mac. https://www.boredpanda.com/we-compared-the-nutritional-value-of-big-macs-from-20-different-countries/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic
  2. That is the same day that legend claims the swallows return to San Juan Capistrano, California.
  3. Spend a little bit of money and ask a professional. This board, and all other boards, is full of amateurs with opinions.
  4. Medicare Advantage is not your only option. There are also Medigap (covers that 20% gap) and Part D (covers meds) policies that can be purchased to supplement regular Medicare. Medigap insurance is not the same thing as Advantage and is not a supplement to Advantage. This is an either/or situation. That's all I know (or think I know!) if you have any questions somebody else will have to jump in here.
  5. "One panel measures one meter 20 centimeters wide by two meters 40 centimeters high with a thickness of 10 to 13 millimeters. Many of these panels come together to make a house." This sounds roughly equivalent to a 1/2" sheet of plywood or drywall. I wonder if the same material is used interior and exterior? What would be the framing between them? How are they fastened together? Interesting but I need/crave more info.
  6. I'd really like to avoid all those cans but, darn it, SPAM only comes in cans. Mmmmmmm, SPAM!
  7. Does that second one back have an extra toe? A cat with extra toes brings good luck into the household.
  8. You can read the court decision here: https://www.bccourts.ca/jdb-txt/sc/19/15/2019BCSC1580.htm The decision is not difficult to understand and can be read in under five minutes. The case was dismissed due to delays. No science was settled here and the decision was not at all as portrayed by OP.
  9. The link posted by Mostlylost works for me, on Chrome. There is a note at the top of the page indicating that the site is under construction. It looks like it is functional but I don't know if the current level (green bar) is actually up to date.
  10. So, in addition to the learning curve can we assume that Linux leads to drinking? A person would have to be crazy!
  11. Thank God (and Bill Gates!) for that learning curve that we always hear about.
  12. Do you have any idea if there is a certain suggested reading level (elementary school, high school, university) for the paragraphs used on the test?
  13. Why would you hesitate to change your screen name? Some of the more active contributors have been on the board under several different names. And, to avoid any confusion, my avatar is not an image of myself.
  14. Homophobic, really? In the U.S. too much personal genetic information in the hands of private, for profit insurance companies is a very scary thing. There is not much motive to insure someone who probably will get sick. The situation is very different where health care is a universal right and not just an opportunity to turn a profit.
  15. Would it be any easier to change the name on your U.S. passport instead?

    If these folk are "purists" I must be downright primitive. I still pop my corn in the same 3 quart Revereware pan that I used as a child. The pan has to be at least 70 years old and still cookin'. I thought about getting one of those poppers with the crank in the handle but I figured the learning curve would be too steep.
  17. I don't think that the search function will work with just three letters. Search for Cannabidiol and several links will appear.
  18. Both water kefir grains and milk kefir grains are available on Mercado Libre.

  20. I think that, in this case, what was true six years ago will still be true. I assume that the person asking the question must have found this very old thread via the Search function. Great, this should be encouraged! I wish I could answer the question but I simply do not know the answer.
