    I am aware Rippetoe has an alternative viewpoint. But he's the only one I've found with it.

    I was assuming tea bags tea leaves are low quality, but it's all I had to hand and, like with Kochin, it was just a "why not?" moment.

    OK, by eating unbrewed tea leaves (bag or otherwise), would I...

    Before or after brewing?

    Recently I've been adding green tea leaves (from a tea bag) to my omelettes.

    What is the difference, nutritionally, between brewed and unbowed tea leaves?

    Kneeling Desk

    There's a lot of talk now about standing desks. Great, but not always practical.

    I've just had an idea. As usual, born out of necessity. Technically lazyness. My chair was the other end of my room...

    That's not ideal. I liked my tooth as it was.

    What about getting the chipped part reattached? Even though it's quite a fun thing to have. If not I might frame it.

    Chipped tooth

    I've just chipped a tooth. Missing 1/3 of one of my incisors. Is there any chance of it growing back?

    Two options when reading:
    1. Wear glasses, hold book far away
    2. Don't wear glasses, hold book relatively close (on edge of not being able to read it)

    Which is best? I...
