On How Much More Are You Spending at the Grocery Store?

@therealjaygatsby I've been making an effort to eat less meat but it's more related to water usage guilt than price. My inner tree hugger that killed the lawn felt bad about how much water it takes to produce a pound of meat.

On How Much More Are You Spending at the Grocery Store?

Wasn't the lime shortage mostly due to cartel actions in mexico? I haven't noticed much produce price change, but in the summer we do a lot of trades with friends and neighbors. That makes it sound like I live in the country, but most people around here have fruit trees and way more tomatoes and squash than they know what to do with. My grocery bill has gone up a touch, but part of that is getting out of the habit of eating out so much so it's a net savings.

On A $455,000 Child Vs. A $145,000 Child

@erinep I'd like to see that, as long as it doesn't involve watching a movie staring Ahrnold.

On Going Above and Beyond Doesn't Help You

@Theestablishment That is like 100% contrary to how I have to give my reviews. We have a scale of 1-5 to rate people on. I am not allowed even for a second to give anyone a 5. I'm really not allowed to give out 4's much either. You get rated on 12 different categories and if anyone has more than five 4's I'm in trouble. Of course if anyone has a 1 or a 2 they're on the path to getting fired. My husband's (different company) reviews are the same. He's not allowed to give out the top score. The feeling from both of our evil overlords is that if you get the highest score you have nothing to reach for.

On a real note what would it take to get subsidized child care in this country?

On Job of the Day: NASA Test Subject

You guys, don't ever do this. I had 3 months of bed rest that it was hands down the worst thing that ever happened to me. You really can see your muscles fade away. Not moving is totally depressing. Your skin breaks out, weird aches show up, and day time tv is terrible. If it was 180K MAYBE, still probably no.

On The Real World Cost of a $22 Gadget

@Elsajeni Well defending his position on NPR's commenting section will surely lead to airlines changing their position on this issue.
