    update from New Hamster! No further words are required, this is what they do.
    Karen I mean Sara really likes hijinks and whatnot. Her husband saying this caused cracks in foundations of houses deserved more than just a quote. A hard hitting journalist would have probably delved a smidge deeper into this. I do applaud the journalist for not saying: "Bi*$& please." when Matt Taglieri made that assertion. I would have said that to his face.

    Funny. By default, I do this wrong. I stay on the street-side in order to be the first person hit by a stray car*.

    *I would say "protect my wife by throwing us both out of the way of" a stray car, but in reality, what I put is more believable.

    Guess I need chivalry lessons.

    I'm thinking of cross-stitching this on a pillow.

    I LOVE demotivational sayings. So I would purchase said pillow.

    This did make me laugh:

    Police said that they had seen a video of the reveal and could confirm that the child was a boy, NBC Los Angeles reported.
    I had not seen that quote. I think I chortled.*

    * It might have just been a chuckle.

    This kind of reminds me of a crime report a long time ago in the Greensboro News & Record. A pizza delivery guy was mugged. Part of the story read, "the Domino's employee was delivering a large pepperoni pizza . . ." Solid journalism!

    My first reaction is if it had been pineapple then the people who ordered it should have been robbed.

    Just the facts, ma’am.

    I respect people to eat lots of fruit. I have not had a piece of fruit in seven years, which is a weird thing to say. I always wanted to have the kind of diet where I could eat fruit and healthy stuff and count calories, but I think that kind of diet would increase the likelihood of me committing a violent crime. So no carbs for me for the safety of the general public. Pineapple has no place on a pizza.

    You forgot 'Fight me'.

    And while I don't have strong feelings about pineapple on pizza (I like food, and pineapple is edible), I'm not about to enter into the fray. Unless Aimo's with me. Then, I'm in.

    I have to keep making myself step away from the coronavirus thread because the topics over there just make me angry. Thinking about vaccine deniers is the latest. I don't much care how we do it, but, it's time for the public health minded among us to bring societal pressure down on the vaccine deniers. We did it with smokers. It is possible.

    I didn't say fight me because I was afraid of who might answer. I am happy to change my mind if Aimo says I should.

    Science denial is a strange type of virtue casting. This is just part of that. Somehow it became a thing to just disagree with science. My assumption is people who profess to be anti-science aren't really saying that they are anti-science as much as they are telling you that they favor one team over another. This is a song by the band Alabama, which is probably the greatest country band of all time (Now I would say the Oak Ridge Boys were more talented and had much more range, but Alabama is synonymous with country music). There is no way they would make this song today. This and the haunting "Seminole Wind" by John Anderson came during a time when there was virtually no disagreement about climate change. That seems like forever ago. No country band would release those songs today or they would get Dixie Chicked. As an aside I could listen to Natalie Maines sing the phone book and love it.

    ^ yeah, I don't think these people think of themselves as denying science, they just like their sources better than our sources. Perfect quote in today's paper about vax deniers, person quoted as saying she'd seen SO much info on Facebook about the dangers of the vaccine that "it must be true."

    I remember when B.O.B. tweeted lots of flat earth stuff and he got called out for it. He replied that he had researched it. Google ain't research. What he meant was he can't see no curve and other people who can't see no curve posted a bunch of stuff online and that looks right to him.

    Agreed. Anchovies should only go on Nilla wafers.
