    I would like to say “you’re welcome” for pretty much single-handedly putting the word ‘firebrand’ back into the modern vernacular.

    “He thinks it might have a papilloma virus that’s a form of cancer.”

    I’m hoping someone else has already commented on this..

    A virus is not a form of cancer. This particular virus CAUSES skin growth. Just like HPV can CAUSE cervical/prostate cancer. The legend of the horned jack-elope probably developed from people that observed infected/symptomatic rabbits.

    There’s no such thing as flesh eating virus. It was a bacteria.

    The sheep don’t glow in the dark. They fluoresce green when exposed to an ultraviolet light of specific wavelength. They are in the dark because it’s easier to see the green light. No predatory mammal puts off or uses UV in order to find prey, so no wolf/bear/anything else would be able to tell the sheep was expressing GFP unless there were UV lamps set up in the woods shining an approx 400 nm light.

    I know this situation.

    Man: I’m gonna get an ice cream. Do you want one?
    Woman: No.
    Man: Are you sure? ‘cuz I want all of mine. I’m more than happy to get you one.
    Woman: No, I’m good. Thank you though.
    Man: Ok…..

    Then the ice cream comes out and…. roll tape.

    Good point. If your job is to write, it’s probably a good idea to do it correctly. It is especially true if it’s a job you want to keep.

    @XAV

    I never said those were your ONLY options. I said they were good ones. The brain does need blood glucose, but you make it sound as if the glucose you get from grain is different than the glucose you get from all the other sources you listed. Glucose = glucose. The difference between simple sugars and complex sugars is a different story, but that wasn’t the point of my post.

    My comment was pertaining to both the idea of a weight conscious and metabolism boosting breakfast. In any case, to get back to the topic at hand, eating breakfast has a host of benefits for your health and well being. The author of the article made it sound as if “eating breakfast is beneficial” is a myth, which is a false premise.

    The idea of breakfast helping to boost your metabolism in the morning is not a myth. With that being said, what you eat for breakfast is more important than whether or not you eat it. Approximately 80% of the minimum required carbohydrates your body requires are used by your brain. Having breakfast isn’t just about boosting your metabolism, but also clarity and focus. Feeling a little like you are thinking through a fog in the morning? A little groggy perhaps? Eat a high fiber, low calorie, breakfast that contains both complex carbohydrates and protein. Oatmeal, cream of wheat, bran cereal, or a low cal granola bar are all excellent breakfasts.

    If you don’t vote. She’s right. If you don’t get your friends to vote. She’s right. If you don’t get your family to vote. She’s right. Let’s not let this be the only time she’s been right on any issue.

    agree

    Blazers. Is this really how to treat people you disagree with? So much hate. I’m not that old and I feel like I don’t understand people anymore. I hope that the vile and vitriolic comments aren’t a true reflection of the right. That has always been the characteristic of the left. Lets stay rational and sane. ESPECIALLY, since you may disagree with Ms. Fluke. She’s still human and having a leftward bent doesn’t change, nor should it trump, that. Geez.

    These are not the drugs you were looking for.

    I believe that BHO loves his wife and kids. Regardless of his policies, it was a sappy moment. I don’t see a problem with it, unless it was rigged.

    Too bad one of the smells wasn’t “Mom’s Basement.”
