Answers that might get me banned

Question

Your Answer:
The one year waiting period is a hold over from the early days of the AIDS scares. There was a lot of doubt about how long it took for HIV to show up in the blood stream, and the tests were far more primitive than they are now. As a result, a one year waiting period was instituted in the hope that any blood detected by a dirty tattoo needle would be caught by the tests that existed at the time.

Men who engaged in sex with another man after 1977 are still banned for life.


Question
How to get recipe out there and selling?


I have a great, unique recipe that many love and I want to be able to sell them. Basically, whether it's selling the recipe, starting a business, selling the recipe to a new business, I don't know how to start.

I've read many different tips on the internet about patenting things and attornies, but what should I do? I don't know where to start.

Your Answer:
No one buys a single recipe. You need to write a cook book and sell that. Check out a book called "How to write a cook book" from your library. It's an obvious title but the book gets good reviews.

By the way, you copyright a recipe, you don't patent it.

I like your blog!

I've never received more abuse and less help ANYWHERE IN MY LIFE than on Yahoo! Answers.

Dell Technical Support is a veritable powerhouse of manners and efficacy compared to Yahoo! Answers.

Keep on doing God's work! :)

I agree. I hate yahoo answers SO MUCH. I had a score of about 300, and i gave someone a website that gives cd keys and genereators and BAM! you can never have any of your score back. You are "suspended from yahoo answers" other words, im done. F*ck yahoo. That really pissed me off. I even begged them in an email to reinstate my account. DENIED they said. Thanks alot yahoo, great service.
