Agree in general. DU's subscribers are more likely than the average person in US to be

more knowledgeable in many subjects because they tend to be curiosity-based fact-consumers in general.

A short-answer quiz of limited number of questions is fairly easy for many to ace; in depth questions in a specific field would be much more difficult for all.

Many or even most subjects advance as one grows older, so a well-informed person has to continue in adapting what was learned in high school or college to current knowledge standards.
How much adaptation or new learning is done is usually a free choice by the individual.
I count myself as one who has not grown much in adulthood in certain fields.

Time, interest and demands of work and life limit our ability to consume new knowledge.

15/15- Roman Catholic.

I guess DU members who choose to participate in Religion Group are not truly "average".

Miralax as needed. Recommended to me by my female urologist, who said she takes it every day.

A tasteless powder. I tend to take small amount - perhaps a tsp. in my black coffee.
The amount could be increased, though I seldom do so. To me, less is always better than too much.

If needed, a quarter cup raisin bran combined with my other dry cereals - 3/4 c- and milk.

For extreme need, I have a container of delicious dates, which I don't dare touch unless the need is truly there.

You can even go to Canada while there...

Wondering why we have two Dakotas. Wouldn't one big Dakota be enough?

(Sorry, Dakotans- don't mean to denigrate your states, but, really.....)
What were they thinking?

This is a disgrace. I am a Hamilton County voter who voted against the Bengals lease 23 yrs ago.

Now the powers-that-be have voted to build a field for a third sports team - the new soccer franchise, owned by one of the area's richest men, a member of the Lindner family, huge Republican donors.

I am no longer interested in professional sports; consider it a waste of time and energy, especially when there are so many pressing problems locally, nationally, and worldwide.

In my younger days I was a huge Reds fan, but no longer pay it any attention.
I do enjoy some college sports on TV, especially NCAA basketball.

So you've been around DU forever and do not recognize a safe haven group? nt

Do you realize this is a safe haven group? Do you know what a safe haven group is? nt

Wow - I haven't thought about stretchers for curtains for 65 years...

Forgot such a thing ever existed.
About 10-15 years ago I bought a pair of pant stretchers from Vermont Country catalogue.
Thought it would make my slacks nice and straight after washing.
And it did fairly well, but I guess I forgot about it over a summer when wearing shorts, and haven't used it in a number of years now.

Stretchers for curtains reminds me also of rugs hanging on clothes lines, and rug-beaters, those tennis-racket-shaped things that one was to use to get the dust and dirt out of rugs.

Thankfully, my mom was not a clean fanatic. We never had curtain stretchers or rug beaters. We never made dozens of Christmas cookies and we didn't can jellies and vegetables. And I'm talking about the 30's and 40's.
So I feel no guilt about not doing those things because they were never really a part of my life. I just observed some others doing it.
