    Smell of castor oil

    I like how it softens the skin but I don't like the smell. Currently looking into buying another kind of oil, maybe Jojaba or coconut. I'm pretty sure I know how the coconut oil will smell but what...

    How do you nocturnists cope?

    I'm pretty sure I'm a nocturnist. I feel most alert from 10pm to 3am or so and am at my worst around 7am when I have to show up for work. I can get into bed earlier but I won't fall asleep. I've...

    Diet soda

    I rationalize it's not that bad for me. There's no sugar or calories, and I've grown to like the taste of the aspartame/acesulfame potassium combo as much as real sugar. As far as I can tell...

    Not a bad idea.

    1 cup chopped spinach
    1 chopped onion
    1 chopped garlic...

    That stinks because I like them raw for the texture. I guess I'm going to have to do an N=1 because I just bought a 5lb bag of onions and I have to eat them before they go bad (~1 month?).

    Do onions really make you smell bad?

    Can you eat a medium sized onion a day without smelling bad? Does the type of onion matter? I love raw onions on top of steak they're so frigging good.
