This is an actual quote from my mom’s boss—something she said to her 2nd grade son after his Valentine’s Day party on Friday, which involves candy and chocolate passed out to all the students:
Just realize that every time you put sugar in your body, you’re killing it
The mom is 40. She is deathly afraid of this age and is doing everything to remain young, to the point of pushing cruel and unusual eating patterns on her children. Children that could, at their age, eat dirt and remain healthy. But now they’re going to forever be afraid to eat anything because they’re being taught that food, essentially, kills slowly.

I’m not fan of Verizon and basically indifferent to PETA, but I do not see a problem with this ad. OK, the dogs (pit bulls) are in a reletively stereotypical role, since while the animals do have a penchant for killing and maiming things, not all of them do. So I see that. But PETA is for the “ethical treatment of animals,” which to me means physical treatment. The animals (person included) are clearly not harmed. Emotionally harmed, though—is that the argument? That the dogs are in a stereotypical role? I refuse to believe the dogs have sophisticated enough emotions to understand the role they were placed in (much less what “stereotypical” is), but regardless, PETA got 7,000 people to send letters to VZW and they pulled the ad.
Is there something unethical here I’m just not seeing?

So of course the exciting news is that Mars has some form of water on its surface, which means it may potentially be a great natural habitat for simple, one-celled organisms, or possibly members of Congress.
Of course, this being America, and America generally being a blood-sucking leech, several Nebraskans have already figured out how to tap into this vast resource by building a pipeline from Earth to Mars, which—assuming there aren’t any obstacles thrown in the way such as asteroids or brain-eating aliens—should be completed just in time for my birthday in 3010.
“A private, state, federal funding partnership is likely,” they wrote.
Yes, I think this is a great idea and we should throw money at this concept immediately.
For the record I think—THINK—this is a joke.

They’re creating a “black list?”
Why not a “white list?” Huh? Why must the BLACK list be connected with a NEGATIVE connotation?
And what about BLACK eyes?! Why not BLUE eyes, since that’s what color they really are? Or is BLUE not racist enough for you pigs??
