physicians are often required, in writing, to prove to hospital administrators and insurance providers that they have brought up their patient’s weight and formulated a plan to bring it down—regardless of whether that patient came in with arthritis or a broken arm or a bad sunburn. Failing to do that could result in poor performance reviews, low ratings from insurance companies or being denied reimbursement if they refer patients to specialized care.

So this is why I can't have a conversation about my health issues with a doctor without being bullied. Awesome. Fuck capitalism.

Absolutely. I was going to try rice wrappers and baking them at some point. The first time I made this, I threw some filling in tortillas and dipped it in sweet and sour sauce. I see a lot of meat eaters do egg roll in a bowl and just eat it with a fork. It's an "in" recipe right now.

I'd be happy to help moderate but as you said, I wouldn't be able to deal with the down-voting. Though deleting the "I sawed this forum in half" messages would be nice. :)

It varies but its possible for closer to a week

No, the egg is only available for fertilization for about 12 hours. The reason it can be up to a week is that is how long sperm can live in the body. (I know this from how much work it took me to get pregnant) Literally, sperm's fault. :)

Yes, they can. Its called precum, and it's one of the reasons the pull-out method isn't an effective method of birth control.

Agreed. This part freaked me out. 0_o

Yesterday, I got bitterly angry at some liberal friends who were posting snarky comments about the hurricane and the fires in the US, who seemed to want to give themselves credit for just believing in climate change. I had to force myself not to shitpost "Where's your fucking praxis? You don't get a cookie for believing in objectively true things. Fucking do something."

Tonight, I saw two giant, beautiful trash pandas climbing a tree together outside my apartment complex. I backed out of their way and thought how lovely they were. It didn't make me feel better but it was a nice sight to see. Also, saw some acorns under an oak tree on my evening walk which are probably from squirrels trying to eat them before they're mature. It made me happy to think soon I will be able to forage some acorns.
