Topic: Food and Drink

I fry bacon every weekend and save the grease to fry food later in the week. (Waste not want not!) I continually add bacon grease to a dedicated mason jar with a tight lid and keep it in the refrigerator. Is this correct? How long will it last this way? How often should I discard the whole jar and r...

Now that Yahoo Answers is dead, who will answer crazy questions?

Topic: Social Media Tags: Yahoo Answers

Today is the last day anyone is allowed to post new questions to Yahoo Answers, so where will the totally clueless questioners go?

Is a traditional siphon the safest way to clean an aquarium with delicate fish?

Topic: Pets

My aquarium is full of rare fish that I love like any other pets and I want them to be safe and healthy. When I clean the aquarium with a siphon, I'm always afraid one of the fish will get sucked up into the tube and injured. Fish aren't so smart, so it's entirely possible for them to get confused a...

In a mosaic novel, every chapter is part of a linear story told by a different narrator. If you repeat a narrator, is it still a mosaic?

Topic: Writing ,    Subtopic: Fiction

My novel is following the mosaic format with a different perspective in each chapter, but one narrator was repeated. What format is it now? Is it just a compilation of short stories? Since the chapters need to be read in order and wouldn't work individually, I tend to think it isn't.    ...

Do yardlong beans have different growing requirements than other pole beans?

Topic: Around the House/DIY/Gardening ,    Subtopic: Gardening

I grew yardlong beans last year with moderate success. They were indeed very long and I harvested three times in the summer, but I underestimated how long the vines would be, so all I had on hand was a shepherd's hook. What type of trellis do yardlong beans need? Do they need a different kind of fer...
