    Is it at all possible to live after drinking bleach?

    Thank you Jim and 256. That was interesting to read. I had no idea that bleach would be basically "mildly toxic". But then for that matter, I had never heard of it being used for suicide either. I can be rather naive at times. All I know is how difficult it is to wash off your hands, so it...

    Is it at all possible to live after drinking bleach?

    Is it at all possible to live after drinking bleach? A friend of a friend of a friend... tried to kill herself with a bag of pills and a bottle of bleach. Medics found her and resuscitated her, she has been in the hospital in critical care for about 12 hours. I am wondering if it is at all...

    Need Japanese Translation

    Thank you everyone! This is really fascinating. HomogenousCow, that is interesting that you were able to come up with the same thing as everyone below you. I had no idea that there were any similarities between Japanese and Chinese. Joris, thank you for the wiki link. This music was...

    Cities to be Lit by Bioluminescent Trees

    I see this thread was actually posted on April 1st, April Fools day, but I just had to respond that I want one of those trees. NOW!

    Earthquake Cluster North Of Puerto Rico

    Lisa, have you ever checked the local earthquake network? I check this daily along with the USGS site. They even have a blog for when we have the local slow slip events in the subduction zone. Fun to follow! What I think is interesting is that we...

    Can you rescue an animal in need?

    Thanks guys! This one is easy. If she doesn't want you to look at her, you get her butt in your face. :) (pat me here!) AlephZ, my dad was a farmer growing up, and all their animals were working animals. ONLY. You didn't have pets. He let it slide for us kids to always have a cat...

    Can you rescue an animal in need?

    Oops, I meant to post after the picture! Her name is Pixie. Fits her rather well, actually. Pointy eared, small statured, mischievous creature.

    Fossil and rock identification

    Obviously the answer was a/. Forgot this thread completely. :grumpy: Here is my arrow head. I had leaned down to pick up a flake that I had spotted, then noticed a piece of glass sticking edgewise out of the dirt. I decided it was best to remove the glass and throw it away in a garbage...

    Can you rescue an animal in need?

    Here is my rescue! We have had her nearly a year, and are still dealing with trust issues. No one is home often enough to really work with her well, but she is a very good girl and fairly well adjusted. She just has some trust issues with men, and prefers to sit by herself instead of in your...

    The Food Thread

    And even if you try NOT to let them. My cousin took home some black berry canes many years ago, and he is now slightly resented in his community. It is a wealthy community in the hills overlooking the city, and all the hillsides are now covered in blackberry. The birds carried the seed. The...

    Turbo-1's HOT STUFF

    These are actually 2 year old plants. I planted the seeds in January 2012. My jalapeno I bought at the store in 2010. I overwinter them inside, then place them outside when it gets warm. Which is like last week. :rolleyes:

    Turbo-1's HOT STUFF

    I finally have 3 ghosts pods growing. The plants are still tiny (only 8 inches high) so I was very surprised to see those mean looking little beasts hiding under the leaves. My daughter insists all three are going to her boyfriend and his best friend, but we shall see. If they were in serious...

    How to make $4000 an HOUR!

    Sorry AntiFreeze, does this make you feel any better? This is my thought also. Is it fair if the company is healthy? Wouldn't it make the company look even better if the employees were paid more than the average joe?

    Photos of ghost towns and abandoned places

    I am jealous! Ever since I was 16 I have wanted to do a photo tour of the ghost towns in the US. Thanks for sharing! Awesome pics!

    How to make $4000 an HOUR!

    Become a CEO. Apparently the median wage is now 9.7 million. That is $4645 per HOUR, folks. Must be nice to make more in an hour than most of your employees make in an entire month.

    Eliminating fruit from the diet

    Ivan, if I can add a tiny thought... Fruits are a good source of vitamins and minerals, and many of your berries seem to have their specific nutrients by color, so make sure the vegetables you eat are extremely varied and in all colors? It seems I read before that purple cabbage has something...

    The humane thing

    Awww, Rhody! You will have to stop by more often now to update us with pictures! I *LOVE* Siamese. Such adorable little fluff balls, and I hope they give your family many years of happiness. I think you left out a name. Chai on the right, and who is the handsome little devil on the left...

    Turbo-1's HOT STUFF

    Update to Rhody: I still have three ghost plants going from last year, but they are still only 6 inches high. I don't think anyone that I gave plants to last year overwintered them, so my 3 plants are all that remains of the seeds you sent to my little corner of the world. If I don't get...

    Raising chickens

    You sure you don't have a prankster in the neighborhood? That is more like the size of an emu egg, not a chicken! And it doesn't appear to have any rings on it to show that it was difficult for her to lay. Look into records and get that thing weighed! You should take bets on how many...

    Funny or ouch?

    Ouch! I can't even watch these clips. Although I will admit they DO make me laugh if I see them, I hate myself for laughing as I know someone was in pain. And for the record, I also laughed at myself when I fell off a horse because it was pure stupidity on my part, but I WAS in pain...

    I predict you two will be wildly successful in your new career. However, you will make little to no actual money. But it will be satisfying none the less. Yes, *I* am a real psychic. As described above. :rolleyes:

    How/why music causes emotion?

    Hi Ben. Certainly, you learn to like certain music styles because of familiarity. I was going for a more fundamental aspect, but there is nothing wrong with your point. FYI I listened to Rachmaninoff the other day. His music makes me happy. And BTW, I found the article with the mp3...

    How/why music causes emotion?

    I would like to throw my two cents in the hat for the topic, although I have only read the first page so I have no idea if someone else has stated this yet. I see music as no different than color. We have settled on specific color frequencies, and have color wheels that show what colors go...

    Warm Beaches, Hot Volcanoes And Cold Back Home!

    *total envy!* I love Kona, it is the best part of the island. Did you get to drive around the whole island? I was blown away to find out they had a desert region with cactus and ranches. Hilo is a nice sleepy town, but the water is too cold for me to snorkel. I have even looked at buying...

    Your last month on earth
