Is ancedotal evidence. Only one of our commenters actually brought up actual statistical evidence of their dieting opinions. 4 of 7 comments (as of the time of my commenting) are personal accounts of how they lost weight. That's great for them, but how well does it work for the population at large?
On a side note, seaweed is also very high in iodine, a nutrient that seems to have fallen away from use in recent years. Some quacks are hawking it as a cure for cancer an obesity, but do we have good studies on ideal iodine levels, and if the average person is getting enough? I haven't seen anyone walking around with goiter lately, but iodine is the key nutrient in the thyroid gland, and that gland is the major player in metabolism.
So the MPAA and the AG have become so desperate that they would try to charge a copyright infringer with grand theft.
Pathetic. This is, however, the kind of thing that happens right before a massive change. The backlash from this will probably be extreme, if it gets to the media as it should.
Sorry, trolls, but AG's do not get to make up new definitions for old crimes for which they have no jurisdiction.
OOTB gets one thing right: Feinstein. Every stupid move from Congress seems to revolve around her. What is it with her? She seems like the perfect "Conservative Liberal", with all of her stances going back to the 1980 liberals. You know, the type Regan trounced.
I think what Mike is saying is that it's difficult to cut out what exactly "software patents" are. Considering that the first patent was on a process, not a device, we need to find a way to draw a line between the two.
But after reading Techdirt for many years, I would say that Mike does NOT support software patents in any form. I can't really speak for him, but that's my impression.
The confidence in the military will fall if people pay attention to the huge problem of sexual misconduct going on in the ranks. A conviction of rape dismissed by a commander? WTF? Those who bring suit are blacklisted and drummed out? No honor there at all.
I think too many people have their impression of the military given to them by their grandparents.
Unfortunately I get the same feeling. There has to be a group of individuals who's mindset is so skewed that throwing the Constitution in the round file is an attractive option. Their positions would also have to be nearly unassailable.
I would look first at the ex-lobbyists who were hired in his first month of presidency. He had signed an oath promising not to hire any former lobbyists. It would take something extraordinary to force his hand.
If we don't get to the bottom of this, elections really aren't going to mean much.
That statement really depends on the crime. Inter-racial marriage, same sex marriage, homosexual acts, spitting, not wearing a helmet when biking, etc. All of these have been outlawed, but the moral grounds are lacking.
We already know that being non-religious does not cause criminal behavior, because less than 1% of prison inmates are non-religious, far less than the national 30% average. So how about a study of how many prison inmates played video games growing up? Anecdotally, the two people that I know who played video games the least also had the most run-ins with the law, but my sampling of 25 or so people is hardly significant.
You guys are missing the big picture! The government is amassing this data for your benefit. Using this data, they can create an almost perfect digital clone of you. Then they can run the clone in a virtual paradise forever! They are giving you life eternal, and you are spitting on them for it. You horrible, horrible people!
