Zach Steel Savior LovelessI used to only use paper plates cuz I threw out most of my plates. When I was a bachelor I would throw it in the dishwasher. If it didn't get clean after three attempts, I threw it away.9 hours ago

Maryanne Ligenza RogersGuilty! A few years ago, We had a stock pot from after thanksgiving, with turkey stock, that we "forgot about" in the man fridge, until the following Easter. Time to go. (Especially when we discovered that the fridge was inadvertently unplugged for an undetermined amount of time.) :)9 hours ago

Alana DossGuilty. If it has mold or something in it, I worry about the safety of reusing it, even washed.10 hours ago

Lynda PetersonIf it was an old old dish or acquired from a yard sale or auction sale and was nasty enough. Tupperware only if it was very nasty as plastic can be hard to clean and remove odours from. Limited use storage ware like Gladware or Ziploc containers yes I have, they are cheap for a reason. Reusable but disposable if need be.14 hours ago

# was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorpe. – BRI Trina ... See MoreSee Less

Neil KomorowskiMy 13 year old nephew saw the title of the song "Funk #49" and called it "Funk Hashtag 49".3   ·  3 days ago

Eric WolfeThen it was discovered those 8 fields were growing cannabis, and it was used to denote where medieval cartographers could find a good, cheap high. Due to the great distances involved in travel at that time, it only made sense to buy by the pound, which is how the octothorpe became known as the "pound sign." Later, as more people bought by the ounce, the name was again changed to "hashtag."2   ·  3 days ago

Tracy Lee CarneAlso used to be a symbol meaning "number" as in #1, then it was "pound" for awhile, though I don't know why. And the international gaming symbol for tic-tac-toe ;) Has BRI ever done an article about symbols that have changed meaning over the years?3   ·  3 days ago
