I normally make my ribs on the grill, but due to circumstances beyond my control I'm gonna oven cook them. I'm using baby backs this year.
First question: Oven cooking the ribs, I was thinking about cooking them at 250 degrees for around 3 hours, or when done. Good plan, bad plan?

I'm seeing this meme pop up. When someone says that people are free to purchase their own insurance if their employer provided insurance doesn't suit their needs, the response is now "poor people can't afford to purchase their own plans."
Wasn't the Affordable Care Act supposed to fix this? Were...

I need something I can chug in the morning before work. Not looking for the post-workout calorie bomb type shake. Just looking for something healthy. I've heard of people putting spinach and strawberries in their shakes, but I'm not sure how that would taste. So, this is what I was thinking of:

I had previously started a thread on Star Trek Voyager, and whether or not I should purchase the first season. It was stated that I should watch DS9 first. I got out of Star Trek after TNG ended.
