    Non-wrinkly skin, however, is, and it's the scientifically-improved produce that makes the natural-raw-organic-virginal stuff look pathetic by comparison.

    Wrinkly skin allows the organic-permissible pesticides they are slathered in more places to hide. That way you can be sure you are still eating organic pesticide after a light washing.

    Not quite sure I get tofu yet. I've had some that was good to very good (though that was mostly attributable to the sauce) but I tried making it for the first time last night in a stir fry with less than stellar results. Edible and OK, but disheartening.

    I will try again though...

    Generally, people should go with manufacturer recommendations. But really, compression in most BMWs doesn't seem so high that 91 octane is needed. That's generally for very special cars or those with engines that were made to run on leaded gas. I wouldn't put it past a lot of BMW owners simply thinking that octane increases performance or efficiency or something, though.

    Wondered about the very low octane levels discussed above, we have 95 or 98 octane petrol here, so did a quick google search on octane. And looks like your 89 is our 95 and your 91 is our 98 (or at least close)

    This is something I really, really don't get. Why does the US have to have it's own definition of octane measure? Why not just go with a measure that everyone else is using. Guess that would be too easy.

    Guess that's probably the best explanation.

    I competed in a strength competition today, but I fell out of contention during the "strength of spirit" portion (contestants had to pray with strong earnestness). I was completely blindsided by that since when do they have a strength of spirit component in strength competitions?
