Mar 13th 2011 4:16AM Drinking alcohol of any kind plus smoking tobacco has been proven to greatly increase your chances of getting throat cancer. Drinking alone, to any excess, causes other problems, but not throat cancer.
Mar 6th 2011 1:04PM You probably know that these sites thrive by advertising, right? Most of what you read online is paid advertising planted to look like "news". Did you notice the snake oil cream that "makes dermatologists mad" on aol? If people stopped falling for such nonsense they might be able to afford a better meal!
Mar 6th 2011 12:44PM If you've spent your life eating burnt meat, you probably prefer it, but this is also about honesty in advertising. Restaurants overcook meat to kill bacteria so they don't get sued. The simple answer is not to eat at these pathetic fast food places. If you have limited tastes and don't care that this kind of food is probably destroying your health, please feel free to continue your looser lives, but if we ever do go to socialized medicine, and I have to pay for you're heart attack and diabetes, expect me to balk. (Actually the government will then do what the HMO's do, and spend the money on themselves, and not really help you much.) Really, Maki should have sued the restaurant for false advertising! (Not that we need any more lawsuits...)
Mar 6th 2011 12:09PM People are far too worried about what you call something, and less concerned about how people act. The worse the fool, the more he tries to micromanage our lives. "Retard" is a poor slur, but lets stop calling every disabled person "special", when in fact we know they're significantly defective.
Feb 14th 2011 12:56AM Madonna was vulgar and used people to get ahead. Mariah Cary seems the same. Barry Manilow stole every melody he ever used. Everybody copies others to some extent, some more than others. Lady gaga created herself in the Madonna mold, but is original enough, and can sing. Why should it bother people? Her name was Stefani Germanotta, and she was told she wasn't pretty enough to make it. She could have been lost in the pack, but is succeeding, nose job and all. I think all of this music and show is vulgar and classless, but I respect someone who can make it, especially without biting off chicken's heads, grabbing his crotch on stage or spewing hate and acting like a moronic gangster.
Feb 13th 2011 7:09PM Great comment, nethov!
Feb 13th 2011 7:05PM People, come on! Gaga is an entertainer! She's entertaining a lot of people (who aren't very intellectual, of course). But remember the princess type who was to be delivered in a cocoon, to a rival king by the USS Enterprise on Star Trek, TNG? Now it's Picard vs Gaga! So she's figured out a new Madonna-type routine, and she's making more money in a day than we'll make in our lifetimes! Now that makes me sick...
Jan 24th 2011 10:10PM Sorry to say but this is largely BS. All that vitamin C and collagen serum is advertising and little else. Research has shown that you need 3 things: Moisturizers, Sunscreen and, if you have sun damage, a Retinoid. Please note that all retinoids that work are by prescription only in the US. "Retinol" is just vitamin A, and is used in over-the-counter products because it sounds like Retin-A, which it isn't. Standard drugstore moisturizers and sunscreens are the same as the super expensive ones, though you might like the texture of one better than the other. Ask a Dermatologist, but don't buy products from a doctor, they're just more over-the-counter products at an inflated price. And if you want to look like the 70 year old above, get a facelift, like she did! (or don't!)
Jan 2nd 2011 8:05PM Oh, and Snooki's first editorial will advise people to throw on anything they find, then get so drunk that they don't notice it.
Jan 2nd 2011 8:02PM Hope you ladies had fun. 10" heels, and you'll keep the emergency room busy. Michelle may be the only one with good insurance. That hat is good if you're waiting for the Titanic. Be careful some dog doesn't jump up and grab it, thinking it's a frizbe.
