Study shows pain really is all in your head, and you can see it
Wed Apr 10, 2013
Great tool if and when available. It can test people who claim to be in enormous pain, when they aren't....just to get their hand on narcotics for illegal street sales. It will prove they are liars.
Judge: Make 'morning-after pill' available to all girls without prescription
Fri Apr 5, 2013
Plan B does *NOT* terminate an existing pregnancy, folks! Please, please, get the CORRECT FACTS! If a female was inseminated, but none of the sperm has fertilized a ripe egg (yet), then clearly there is NO BABY to be killed. That does not mean she can't or won't get pregnant—unless there is in …
'The new normal': Cohabitation on the rise, study finds
Thu Apr 4, 2013
So couples who move together now, who aren't wanting to make a decision about marriage or kids just yet (especially the responsible, intelligent ones using 2 forms of birth control in the meantime to reduce their chances)…instead of simply being nagged "When are ya gonna get MARRIED???" peopl …
233 million women may need contraception by 2015
Tue Mar 12, 2013
Taxpayers are going to have to choose, one or the other: Pay for birth control NOW —or— pay for govt assistance to the poor later. If you insist on paying for neither, then don't be surprised when some kids are born dirt-poor in the inner city, possibly abused & never wanted, who lea …
High-heel sneakers wedge their way onto kids feet – but should they?
Thu Feb 14, 2013
It used to be that a girl had to wait to be in her teens before parents let her wear makeup, heels over 1.5 inches or anything more grown up looking. In the past 1.5 decades, marketers are creating very adult-concept things for kids younger than ten years old. I saddens me how many parents cave, pur …
Mutt-ernity ward: Dog in delivery room raises hackles
Tue Jan 29, 2013
While I agree that pets can bring great comfort in times of distress, I seriously worry about keeping the birthing room as clean as possible for the arrival of the baby, which has very little, if no immune system developed yet. Pet's fur or feathers can already be contaminated with tons of microbes …
Police: Softball coach in Pa. had sex with teen daughter's best friend
Tue Jan 29, 2013
Too many of these idiots, both male & female, are everywhere, in positions of authority over our minors. We live in such a youth-worshiping culture, that there are quite a few adults who simply fail to grow up in the head…Or they wake up, realize how old they are (which scares them), then …
'Princess Bride'-loving flier hassled over Inigo Montoya T-shirt
Thu Jan 24, 2013
I seriously doubt anyone in the world who is of REAL threat is going to wear a shirt with a message about their planned evil deed to kill people. Seriously? Who are these airline idiots? Hire a criminal profiler to teach them what looks like a threat and what isn't (like this T-shirt).
ADHD in kids jumps 24 percent in a decade, study shows
Mon Jan 21, 2013
They have the ability to do brain scans to diagnose ADD/ADHD based on how specific regions of specific lobes "light up". (Google "Dr. Amen Clinics" to see an example of how). But many doctors don't have access to this extremely expensive equipment to confirm their hypothesis. Instead, they make an u …
LAPD conduct investigation after cop gives cyclist ticket 'for arguing with me'
Sat Jan 19, 2013
Lovely. Meanwhile there are people in LA (that I've heard about through friends of mine who live there) who get in a car accident on the highway and are told when they call the police that if there are no injuries, don't bother waiting for them to come as they won't—just come in and file a pol …
