'Get me off this plane': Man locked in dark cabin in worst layover ever
Mon Dec 9, 2013
Plus, we don't know if he was an isle or window seat. In the isle, sure, the other passengers would have had to climb over him. In the window, unless someone purposely tried to wake him, odds are that he wouldn't have been touched or jostled in any way. No matter how sound a sleeper he is, or how th …
Quiz: Are you a member of the new American center?
Tue Oct 15, 2013
I noticed that too. There were a couple of times I almost clicked something wrong but noticed just in time. That could potentially skew results (I don't know how they gathered the data for the article, but if it was in the same format, then I'd take it with a grain of salt).
Pink ink: Tattoos transform mastectomy scars into beauty
Fri Oct 11, 2013
I kind of do vaguely remember reading something about a woman who had the double masectomy and was lap swimming regularly in a suit without a top, and somebody got all worked up about it, so she had to start wearing one with a top (there was some reason why she hadn't been-it was uncomfortable becau …
What's in a name? Lots when it comes to Obamacare/ACA
Thu Sep 26, 2013
It is a self-rated "I know a lot about this", so I honestly don't think that rating means anything (for either self-identified republicans or democrats). Just because a person thinks they know a lot about a particular topic doesn't mean they actually do. And, just because a person thinks they aren't …
'Naked and scared': Haunted house welcomes nude thrill-seekers
Tue Sep 24, 2013
jr-Well, to be fair, the possibility of being slammed into by a large person if you don't get out of the way fast enough exists whether everybody's wearing swimsuits or not.
Teen arrested after threatening to 'shoot up' and 'blow up' school, cops say
Thu Sep 12, 2013
I think it depends upon how close together the schools are. The article said that they were all on the same campus, so it's likely the schools are indeed very close. It's not that big of a stretch of the imagination to think that somebody with the intent to do harm could travel building to building …
What career do teens want? 'I don't know,' many say
Wed Sep 11, 2013
Now, I don't know that I'm willing to lay 100% of the difference on the addition of the new "I don't know category", but I did wonder how much of an effect this additional category had. It also seems like they're only comparing this year to the year before-I think it'd be more helpful to show a long …
Pa. judge hears arguments in landmark gay marriage case
Wed Sep 4, 2013
Ohwell-so when some guy introduces you to his wife, do you instantly starting picturing the two of them having sex? Because that statement ("this is my wife"/"I'm married" or whatever) gives exactly the same amount of information as a person saying "I'm gay" (or "I'm straight", for that matter). So …
Diana Nyad: 'I was sick as a dog' during historic swim
Tue Sep 3, 2013
scales-plus, you would have thought that, if she was "publicity-seeking homosexual" her sexual orientation would have come up in the story. Her orientation has nothing to do with what she has accomplished here. And, if someone accomplishes something, and discusses their oppositely-sexed spouse/signi …
Learning cursive writing: Is it worthwhile or a waste of time?
Fri Aug 30, 2013
I have to agree that I thought making cursive a homework assignment was a great idea (as long as the homework is well-enough designed that the students are able to complete it with minimal in-class time). Those who want to spend more time on it will be able to, while those who won't value it still g …
