So you have constipation, join the club. What you will need, - A Mug - Water - Honey - Lemon or Lime - Spoon - Yourself -My remedy consists of, wake up earlier then usual. - Make yourself a hot cup of water. If you have any honey, place a tea spoon full or more (depending on your taste buds). - Put a slice or drops of lemon or lime in your water. They are good with helping cleanse your bowels. - Drink it, sip it, your choice. - Also what is good after drinking it, is to sit in a squat position with good posture. This helps to straighten the rectum and other stuff to provide a better way of flowing. Ever know why those toilets on the floor in foreign countries are so popular :) If you can not squat, then sit down but elevate your feet so they are in tippy toe position, the lower the seat, the better for this. Then do some hand motions on your stomach, going in circles. Or lie on your back and do so. When you are in the bathroom, elevate your toes again -- or grab a stool and place under your feet, this helps straighten out rectum so you are not trapping the poop from coming out and straining. DON'T STRAIN (causes hemorrhoids). Get children to do this too!!! PUT A STOOL OR SOMETHING TO ELEVATE THERE LEGS HIGHER and sit up straight, maybe put a cute fun picture on the wall across them (high so they can look up and help with posture).

If we are trying to explain some phenomenon, X, then we need to identify variations in the likelihood of X or the rate of X, and look for potential causes that (1) vary across the relevant circumstances in a way that could explain X and (2) that we can connect to the outcomes for X in some way. For example, with the gender distinctive clothing question, some ways to better specify the question and look at it through comparisons are:
