I trim them and put them in a small pot, add water to cover and about 10 percent lemon juice to it, add some salt and a teaspoon of butter - bring to a boil, then cover and shut off the heat. wait 30 minutes.

If you want to be like my mom, make a small cut on the stalk end that looks like a plus sign.

Great fiber! I've passed some great slashdot articles that way :)

Instead of a technology solution, just ratchet up distracted driving to DUI costs.

If the officer sees you in the left lane doing under the speed limit while staring at a cellphone with thumbs twitching - pull them over, impound the car, and fine the driver $20,000 and suspend their license.for two years on a first offense.

Problem solved.

I'll await the downmodding of the folks that think it's ok to let go of the steering wheel to text while on an interstate and in the left lane.

I use VPN to dial into my home machine while at work because the it idiots just check filters and apps instead of really examining traffic.

I also use netflix to watch top gear, but after this fiasco, I'll be looking into d/l all my favorite bbc stuff like ground force, sarah jane, mi5 and the rest.

Way to go BBC - did you ever read the book on making friends and influencing enemies?

Allow them to cherry pick and mandate them to expand to the poor.

Comcast won't have a leg to stand on, and the cherry picker will be forced to expand and compete.

Alternatively, comcast should be forced to make high speed internet inexpensive when the consumer decides to not take them up on television or phone service.

If Comcast shuts up about someone competing with them, then maybe both of them can avoid getting legislated.
