are you making other stuff with the quinoa? (btw, watch the steel cut oats if its not organic-- theres lots of glyphosphate residue in it)

if youre just making it as a side dish, 1/2 cup should be plenty for a kid.

why not make a bigger batch and just put it in the fridge? if i have to cook, i always cook in volume.

I try not to support amazon but I do need to get my textbooks soon anyway, thank you for the tip :)
thats a very good point, but seeing how most of us dont have it growing locally, you might as well. vegetables and fruit can be purchased from local people. i get my specialty items (organic deodorant, soap berry extract for the washing machine) from small websites to support them.

Why do so many people hate on Amazon so much?
Because it’s great at the game of capitalism and encourages consumerism, two things lots of people aren’t fond of? They want to be the market. Most online shoppers, myself included, just go straight to amazon for online shopping which forces other retailers and manufacturers to use Amazon’s platform to reach online shoppers.

its hurting mom and pop businesses as well as brick and mortar stores. amazon also bends to the governments whim. remember when they felt it was wrong to carry certain items that might be offensive to others? bezos also pulled jim fetzers sandy hoax book on obamas orders. its convenient and cheap, but never trust amazon. its not your friend. people post too much info on that site and all of that is ripe for data mining.

Q: getting an adjustment at a chiropractor-- good or bad?

i used to think is was quackery and thought they were just as much of a doctor as dr. dre. i changed my mind somewhat recently and thought they could be beneficial to, say, someone with sciatica. i am reading a few things now that these adjustments weaken the ligaments and cause the joints to slip out more easily than before, and ive read that some of these adjustments can lead to arthritis.
im not sure what to believe.

My best guess would be because USBs are universally acceptable in computers, which would make the six regions for DVDs null and void. There are Region 0 DVDs that play in every player in the world, but for the most part, that’s at the manufacturer’s discretion. Therefore, I guess you could say that USB sticks would replace Region 0 DVDs and distributors’ heads would explode and lose control and money on the market.
