    To be honest... I was engaging with him... just to see what his response would be. As usual... he delivered. Gold Standard is more like it.

    These people have a rather rosy outlook on life:

    http://www.marieclaire.com/culture/a.../antinatalism/

    “Our parents thrust us into the world but they won’t be living our lives for us. There’s no way to predict your future or your child’s—but there will be guaranteed loneliness, disappointments, frustration, fears, illnesses, long work hours, and pain,” says Diane Bandy, a writer, animal advocate, and anti-natalist from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “Reproduction and parenting have been falsely glamorized. I never saw any logic to the idea that parenting is life-affirming.”

    Honestly, it might be for the best that they don't reproduce.

    I think you should study the life cycle of the locust.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Those big rigs running through there and off the road are scary.

    I’m trying to picture a scenario where a car would hit that pile up at full speed (like some cars did). The only answer I can come up with is they must be drivers from California

    I have a CDL, and while I don't drive over the road, I've driven enough semi's to appreciate what those two big trucks did. Maneuvering through there like they did took amazing skill and quick thinking.

    I was thinking that they likely saved a few lives besides their own.

    lack of vision.

    when I was a senior in HS, I was about 15 or 20 of what became an 85 car pile up (only 70? weak) on the 2-15. I was lucky enough to be driving in the far right lane so when I came up on the road block I was able to quickly swerve off the road into the grassy area off to the side, but ultimately the blizzard was such that you couldn't see and by the time you could see, it was too late because the road was so slick. Like I said, I was lucky to not hit anybody, but I was hit by two different cars doing the same thing I was doing - but I was already there. it was crazy to sit there, looking in my side mirror and just watch the carnage behind me. people simply couldn't stop once they realized what was going on. silver lining, there were very few, if any, serious injuries among those 85 or so cars.

    Identification of gases responsible for the odour of human flatus and evaluation of a device purported to reduce this odour


    Flatus was quantitatively collected via rectal tube from 16 healthy subjects who ingested pinto beans and lactulose to enhance flatus output. The concentrations of sulphur-containing gases in each passage were correlated with odour intensity assessed by two judges. Odour intensity was also determined after treatment of flatus samples with zinc acetate, which binds sulphydryl compounds (hydrogen sulphide and methanethiol), or activated charcoal. Utilising gas-tight Mylar pantaloons, the ability of a charcoal lined cushion to adsorb sulphur-containing gases instilled at the anus of eight subjects was assessed.
    Looks like the charcoal-filter pantaloons definitely worked:

    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    Unless the first one is supposed to be Michelle Obama. Doesn't look like her to me.

    Yeah hers is a little on the "artsy" side. I really like Obama's portrait, though.

    I agree it isn't an exact likeness, but if you wanted it to look identical to her why not just take a photograph and hang it on the wall? It's the artists' impression of her, during her (likely) many hours of sitting for the artist. It's flattering in my opinion.

    I understand artistic impressions, but she should at least be recognizable. Its a very nice portrait. To me, it just looks like a portrait of some other person.

    Agreed. I didn’t know who it was until I saw Obama’s portrait and then made the connection.
