There are, of course, much better things than rice for use as a dessicant but I have used it effectively when I had nothing else.Can rice be used as a dessicant?
I have dropped a cellphone that fell in a pool into alcohol and it continued to work after I drained it out.I know people who have thrown their cell phones into a container of rice to dry it out after an accidental swim in the lake. I baked mine out with radiant oil heater instead. My wife's friend used to work for a cell phone company and she told people to do it all of the itme. Apparently it works...
Are there any women anywhere that you approve of in any fashion? Just curious; you never seem to have a good word for women in general. It's getting obnoxious.Rice in salt shakers is common in restaurants everywhere. As for Martha Steward, like most men, I find her obnoxious.
Classy. This is the 2nd time you've tried to insult me unprovoked. Go away.Rice in salt shakers is common in restaurants everywhere. As for Martha Steward, like most men, I find her obnoxious.
Is he *always* like that? Thank God for decent men like my dh. I so would NOT last with an abusive male.:thumb:Ignore him. Some men are threatened by strong women, and disguise that threat to their masculinity as hate. You have to figure a certain percentage of Rambos here are using their guns to make up for something - ya' know?
Well... think about it. The reason why they don't have rice in salt shakers in Reno, Nevada, because there isn't much of a humidity issue in the desert. Where there are humidity issues you will find rice in salt shakers, around the world.They don't use rice in shakers here nor in Reno, NV so , no, NOT everywhere". Yes, in New Zealand.
Well, it is off topic, but yes... Katherine Hepburn was quite a woman, just about near perfect in my book; Audry too. Nana Visitor and Lexa Doleg steal my heart and the way Sandy Duncan moves... what a dancer... Professor Christina Hoff Summers. I interviewed her twice. What a brilliant, insightful woman. She was a delight to talk with. Rachel Ray seems like someone to have a great time with. I was quite depressed when I heard Ann Heche was gay. But now that she isn't life is better. Ayn Rand captured me for for a decade or so as did Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island. She was far more attractive than "Ginger." Jessica Savitch was a great journalist whose life ended way too soon. I miss her reporting. She was a classy lady and a penetrating mind. And while I disagree with her politics I met Hillary Clinton about a decade ago and she was an impressive woman in private. Much more personable than her public persona.Are there any women anywhere that you approve of in any fashion? Just curious.

Katherine Hepburn a great woman? What??? I am related to the late Spencer Tracy, and it might not shock you to hear that our family thinks the "fabulous Kate" is little better than a whore. A talented whore with a great job, but an adulterous whore nonetheless. I cannot fathom why you would find her to be "perfect".
The only two positions I have taken to receive all this derision is 1) women should not be in combat and 2) their increased participation in journalism has lowered its standards. Both positions are well-supported by research and are reality whether the ladies here like it or not. Neither position is sexist as they are both are based in fact and reality.[/I]
Well-supported by WHAT research? Cite your sources and make sure they're legitimate, thorough and credible. We ladies will be checking, I assure you.
I don't go to the ladies section because I don't find it interesting, nor do I go to the knife section because I don't find it interesting either. Occasionally there is a new post that I respond to but that is not trolling. I don't contribute to either section and I don't read either. it just so happens that it crosses my path now and then.[/quote]
Now you really have me rolling, Zorba. Your chauvinistic thoughts are in the Ladies Section so often that you should be awarded an honorary vagina! Who are you trying to BS??? My word, man, you are throughly pathetic! It is my belief that you hate women so much because you spend most of your life alternating between being afraid of women and secretly wanting to be one.
Go away little troll boy...you bore me.

I am fast approaching 5,000 posts (4,964) with only a few dozen in the ladies section at most. That is not a lot of presence. I almost never go there because I don't find it interesting, just as I don't find the knife section interesting. I only look at new posts and occasionally one in those sections is interesting. In fact, I don't even look at who writes the posts.
As far as my posts being boring... people ignore boring posts. They respond to posts that motivate them for better or worse. Either way, that is not boring.
Re Spencer and Katherine... it was he who pursued her and he who refused to marry her, not the other way around. She was in love with him all a her life. I think calling her a whore is conveniently ignoring his poor behavior and his crass use of her. Who was trashing who's heart in that relationship?
As usual, you speak as if you know what you are talking about. Your "facts" are completely incorrect. I'm a family member and I am privy to inarguably more insight into that relationship than you can ever hope to know. Not for a minute do I excuse Spencer's behavior, but you can be sure that Kate KNEW full well that he was married and would never be available to marry her. But, we are off topic.Re Spencer and Katherine... it was he who pursued her and he who refused to marry her, not the other way around. She was in love with him all a her life.

With the utmost respect to you, sir...stop your hating of women. Oh, and don't forget that we ladies are still waiting for you to disclose your sources and for you also to cite concrete examples regarding the way women have ruined journalism amongst other things. The funny thing is, though, I don't think you'll be able to find them. BECAUSE THEY DON'T EXIST.
Enjoy your Monday evening to its fullest.
