Voting for clothes

Hmmm... interesting. :p

Sportscasters instead of political pundits. Maybe a good idea. :D

This might point out one of the problems of having political parties. It is a very human trait to identify with groups no matter what those groups think or do.

Re: Zuckerberg still thinks were are all assholes

I can't see paying for a stock that's inflated at 100x it's actual value. Real tech companies trade at about 10-12x actual value. I guess they're betting that the value will increase that much. I don't use Facebook. Too spammy. I like Google+ better. Maybe FB is better these days, but back when I wa...

Re: UC TV: The skinny on fat (Part 1)

I always noticed most dietitians are fat. Perhaps they follow their own advice too closely? http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/05/06/why-the-campaign-to-stop-america-s-obesity-crisis-keeps-failing.html Snippet: Absent, for instance, is the fact that the very first childhood-obesity clinic in...

Why French children are happy eaters...

In a word, they get really great lunches and they don't get to choose, the adults decide. It's how I was brought up. Probably why I've got an adventurous palate now.

Re: UC TV: The skinny on fat (Part 1)

Sugar is every bit as bad as HFCS. It is, after all, 50% fructose and HFCS is 55%. It's the fructose that's the issue, or at least in the quantities that people are eating it in. It has to be processed by the liver and we can't handle the fructose load we're currently getting. It's leading to diabet...

Re: Utah (governor) did something correct

There's always a segment of the population that likes to maintain the status quo, no matter how repressive it is to them, personally. It isn't like Islamic women all universally think their religious laws are wrong and being covered from head to toe in black cloth is wrong somehow. It's the moderate...

Hilarious!

A political operative brings Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, Adams, and Franklin to 2012 from the past, trying to get them to endorse his candidate. Hilarity ensues.
