re: Did Amazon recently change their delivery system? - Spock's Eyebrow
AMZL US? It's a mess. They do post a photo of where they left it, which is interesting. OTOH, Amazon doesn't seem to know where the packages are going. For one package, I got multiple emails telling me it might "arrive later," but it arrived on time, and on another, I got multiple emails telling ...

re: Drug with fish oil cuts risk of heart attack, stroke, study finds - Spock's Eyebrow
Here's a start: [link=(https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/health-expenditures.htm)]CDC - National Center for Health Statistics[/link] For 2017, they give Rx drugs as 9.8%, but looking at the PDF tables, I'm not sure that includes drugs given as part of hospital care. I think I said 15% anyway, a...

re: Noise Canceling over ear headphones - Spock's Eyebrow
You're like a man who wants to rent pigs. He's hard to stop. When you want to use a device, you go and find the devices you don't want to use and disable a pretty critical feature on them you'll need to re-enable later, and you claim that mitigates the need to re-pair. If it works for you, congrats,...

re: Noise Canceling over ear headphones - Spock's Eyebrow

re: Noise Canceling over ear headphones - Spock's Eyebrow
The biggest difference is that the Bose lets you easily switch between up to eight Bluetooth devices, while the Sonys require PITA re-pairing to switch. I have the original Sonys, the 1000x, and I won't buy a newer model until they address this deficiency. I actually bought a Bluetooth receiver that...

re: Soup anyone? - Spock's Eyebrow
This will get shite upon, but I make chicken noodle soup with the Bear Creek mix, stock from the chicken thighs I add to it, and extra carrots, because it doesn't have enough carrots. It's delicious. It's better than the last batch I made from scratch, and it's so easy. ...
