MyFitnessPal - if you're really cooking big portions, you just enter the recipe as you made it, then figure out how many servings it will make for you. You only have to figure it out once per batch. You should be able to knock it out in 5 minutes. Works for me. Next time I make that batch of chili, I just enter the ingredients again since mine are never the same each time either.

Body Substance Isolation. Seriously man, it's the first thing you learn. I'm only an EMT, but in any of our skills we were tested on, not calling out BSI was an automatic fail. I get that you're sympathetic to what they're trying to do, and they should be commended for it. But at what point are they negligent?

I am pointing out that samzenpus is just a prime example of how political - and conservative - this site has become.

I assure you that the collective community is applauding your efforts to sleaze this place up. You've been around long enough to know that the old conservative vs liberal thing is a waste of electrons.
