I would suggest the President get a copy of “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” by Allen Carr.

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?
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.
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.

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.
So is a nice plateful of eggs with a side of lightly sauteed greens and a side of strawberries. The brain does not require grain-based carbohydrates, it requires blood glucose. A big hit of grains first thing in the morning is unnecessary and can create a "crash" an hour later in some people who are insulin sensitive. The primary source of carbohydrate in the diet should not be grain--it should be veg, fruit, and nut and there is nothing grains can provide that you can't get from those sources more easily and with more nutrition overall.

Coffee the perfect breakfast.
@Firebrand Of course, glucose is glucose, but the sudden spikes in blood glucose that can follow a breakfast heavy in grains (yes, even whole) is no better than a breakfast heavy in sugar and can be a dangerous thing for many to do first thing in the morning on a regular basis. Those who have issues with insulin sensitivity need to back off of this sort of breakfast entirely. This accompanied by the gradual wear and tear of the intestine and elevated inflammation can put pretty much anyone at greater risk for developing autoimmune disease and a number of other issues. In our culture there is a bias toward suggesting grain products first thing in the morning and this is not doing anyone with weight issues any favors. At best grains are irrelevant to health--at worst, they are quite damaging, especially wheat.
I agree with CIRCLEDWAGONS - Coffee, for me, is the best breakfast.
It's all about what you are used to eating. I never eat breakfast at home. I rarely eat a full lunch. I eat dinner and then have a second dinner (usually leftovers from dinner). Now, If I suddenly started eating breakfast and lunch, what do you think would happen to me? I would gain weight. Simple.
Why do I eat at weird intervals? Because I do not eat if I am not hungry. Just because society says it's breakfast time, or lunch time, doesn't mean I am hungry.
No Kidding. The NY media installed this fool, no surprise he asks their permission ahead of time.
Media Matters should be shut down and the people prosecuted.
If this White House, DOJ & the rest of this putrid administration
were all doing their job
serving the citizens of the USA first & foremost-
their ONLY Public Relations experts,
there would be no need for any outside groups
mining, covering, & burying their tracks of corruption & ineptitude.
THEY serve us....WE employ them !
It's TIME to Give them ALL pink slips-
anyone who voted for, with or in line with this "Great Farce n' Fraud",
his ObamaCare, Solyndra, Green Funds, etc.
All of you, who voted NOT to repeal ObamaCare-
no matter your affiliation are GONERS.
Follow Obama-the-Terrible OUT of town !
Eastwood reminded us,
"If somebody's NOT doing his job, you've gotta' let him go".
We'll put a great patriot like Clint
up against your socialist Media Matters muck, any day-
in like Clint, cool & classy all the way !
Oh and BTW,
ALL you Bleedia-Schmedia groups,
liberal PR or network PC-
YOU don't get to DECIDE for Americans,
what's BEST for us,
no matter how much you bend & decimate the TRUTH !
WE make THAT decision-
OUR honor & trust can not be skewered, can not be messed with,
can not be bought !
Apparently, none of you learned your lessons from the Tea Party.
We've gotten rid of a lot of deadwood, we're not done yet.
If anyone can make it happen-
it's all of us decent folks with unshakeable & unbreakable spirit...
we are ready to rediscover America, all over again
with Romney & Ryan !
Sad, sickening, and true. No longer have any faith in the "public" to be curious and caring enough to even want to know the truth.
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.

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.
C'mon you don't know Barry he only loves himself and could care less about his family because you heard him say he wouldn't want to burden his daughter with a baby so I don't doubt he see's his family only as a burden.
