You don't know much.
Primates can use sign language and form sentences, and the research into it shows they even show a concept of language and create sentences they never were taught. They also know how to lie to cover their misdeeds.
Koko (gorilla) once blamed something on the cat. Another time when Penny (the researcher) had a guest, Koko got into the guest's purse and stole a lipstick. She then created art on a wall. When Penny asked her what happened, Koko signed "Michael did it." Michael was (he's dead now) another gorilla at the center.

Speaking of Michael, he was rescued from poachers who had taken him from the bush when he was like two. Talking to Penny one day he described watching the men with guns kill his mother and cut her head off. That was like 20 years after the fact. So, yeah just as smart as cats and dogs./eyeroll

OMG, now my mouth literally is watering for scallops!
I've never prepared them myself and it's expensvie to order them at a restaurant (but I don't let price disuade me). I definitely need to try cooking them myself. I know it's not difficult and they cook up quickly.
Guy at work made scallops with pesto last night. It sounded AMAZING.

Red-if you still get Cook's Illustrated I seem to recall they had a piece on cooking scallops so they don't get too watery
Plaza del Lago is actyually a different company! I'm not sure if it's a family tiff or what, but they are separate. the glenview one is the same company as the hinsdale one.

Primates are sentient beings, and dolphins are sentient as well -- they're the only nonprimate we know to be sentient (aware of self).

Mimi: edog doesn't believe pigs are are next in line after dolphins in intelligence, so you're barking up the wrong tree.

Oh I know. He really is TSTI. It just pisses me off that in this day and age people are still SO hung up on the idea that humans are some kind of special creation that is in no way associated with other animals. Oh did I say humans were animals? Guess I'll get told that we aren't animals...<shrug> Of course me having waaaaayyyyyy more, um, expertise, in the matter than he does makes not one iota of difference. It's probably a liberal conspiracy.

Good news: Thought my car had a problem,b ut wasn't sure -- thenmy check engine light came on. thought it was a recurrence of the issue I had last year when the mice got into my engine and chewed up the electrical housing.

Took it in this morning. No problems! The check engine light was for an oil change and the car is actually just fine! woo hoo! Should cost me $15 for their time!

I run the word together because h0m o usually gets flagged. And HUMANS ARE NOT APES! We are two different species.
Here stupid. "Hominidae consists of orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and humans.[1][2] Alternatively, the hominidae family are collectively described as the great apes.[3][4][5][6

" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ape

"Ape" is NOT a species dum dum. There are several species of apes.

First, you need a genus. There are several gerera among apes. For humans it is Homo, for chimpanzees it is Pan, for gorillas, it is Gorilla, orangutan is Pongo, siamang and other gibbons are Symphalangus and so forth.

Ergo, modern humans are Homo sapiens, the common chimpanzee is Pan troglodytes, bonobo chimpanzees are Pan paniscus , gorillas are Gorilla gorilla, orangutans are Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus, siamangs are Symphalangus syndactylus syndactylus (lots of gibbon speciaes), and so on.

All of them are apes. They are fifferent genera and species but they are all apes, simpleton.

species plural of spe·cies (Noun)
Noun

A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. The species is the principal...
A group subordinate to a genus and containing individuals agreeing in some common attributes and called by a common name.

Yes we are different species, we are different genera as well, but we are apes. Your denial doesn't change biology. Go ahead and hide your head in the sand. It doesn't change fact.

I didn't know that. Their fish is good.
The places Sam mentioned are on Halsted. One is on Lake and teh otehr a block north on Fulton. I had an office near there a few years back. The one on Fulton got a lot of my business. There is also a professional knife store on Lake that is a serious store.

BTW I am having cioppino for lunch. Trader Joes plus a bag of tehir frozen seafood mix plus acan of crushed tomatoes and some cayenne. Enough for 3 people or 2 and lunch

Yes, they ARE fired for being gay. They DO get evicted for being gay (the LL finds out that someone has a boyfriend sleeping over on weekends for example, but wouldn't evict if it were an opposite sex couple).
Don't believe this is happening at all. Many openly gay people are gainfully employed and have a roof over their heads. You should stop getting your news from paranoidprogressives.com .

What the hello are you babbeling about tampon? Their your words, I even provided the post# where you said them. Now your going to say I am making them up? Talk about rejection of reality, you cant even admit you typed something....even when the post# is provided as proof!

Logic really eludes you dont it?

No crow, dum dum. You are being deliberately obtuse. I explicitly stated in the post I cited to that you can say whatever you want, and you can face how people will characterize and respond. I have said the same thing multiple times now. I would have hoped that you'd have something better to do with your time than fabricate dischord, apparently I was mistaken.
You haven't answered yet: Would you call a black person the N-word? It's your right to do so, right? No limitations on who can use what words, right? Would you do it?

Not to dispute the veracity of the claims, but was the signing by Michael verified by an independent source? Any chance he was coached or encouraged? Did he initiate these conversations?
If we can get gorilla's to carry on an intelligent conversations, does that mean theirs hope for mutt?

It DOES happen. The fact that it doesn't happen to every gay person doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Hi all! So, some of you may remember me talking about how much I loved my sorority in college because it wasn't like a stereotypical sorority. We encouraged individuality and I didn't feel like a "stepford sister".

Well, National just informed us that they are revoking our charter at the end of this semester. They say it is due to low numbers (the membership numbers are exactly the same as when I was active 15 years ago), poor communication and not being competitive on campus. Apparently they said something in another letter about "alternative lifestyles". We (the alum) are not taking that to mean homosexual, but that our sisterhood does not look like the blonde, cheerleader type that is prevalent in chapters in the South. They are intelligent, charismatic and philanthropic, though. Many of my sisters are now lawyers, executives, entrepreneurs and otherwise successful women both in their personal and professional lives.

I am livid and I'm not the only one. RU is a really big university and that sisterhood made it smaller and more manageable, especially for those of us who lived out of state.
