“As someone whose white, male, twenty-something, paranoid schizophrenic close relative resulted to gun violence many years ago, I can attest that his impetus was the polar opposite of Ann Hornaday's thesis.

I viewed Roger's taped manifesto and I get his take on rejection by girls he'd approached, but in the incident I refer to my otherwise-intelligent relative simply did not have the ability to battle the voices in his head that were telling him to grab his rifle and shoot someone.

My relative did not feel rejected by society. He believed that government agents stood outside his bedroom window and were there to capture and imprison him because he was a John Birch'er.

There were no Rogen/Apatow movies in the 1970's, nor anything as raunchy and cleverly satirical.”

“'Gluten' is a contraction formed from the words 'glue" and 'tendril."

If refers to the process of combining Elmer's Glue and tendrils, which as offshoots of plants, bond wheat products such as bread and prevent them from spoiling.

Gluten-free products spoil rapidly. That's reason gluten-free items must be consumed or frozen almost immediately.”

“Among the top 34 'developed' countries in the world, the United States is tops -- way tops -- for gun deaths, with a 2010 rate of 3.2 firearm-related deaths per 100,000 population, according to statistics collected by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. Chile was second at 2.2, followed by Turkey and Switzerland, tied for third at 0.8. The rest of the countries fell below 1, if they made the map at all.”

“I know, but see Brian. Writing nurses notes, then dictating, and having a PA for my thoughts of almost 40 years. I lost the skills I graduated with. When I am fresh, I work harder at brushing up those skills but when tired.... I appreciate the reminder, and I promise I'll keep working the brush! :) Please take my word; I have improved greatly since coming to HP! Have a nice day Brian!”

“Frankie_Baby,

Although the article above focuses on a woman's hips only, you're referencing a 'curvier body,' which would include the bazoomas, legs and arms.

Frankly I'm an upper-body man, and care not if their hips are three axe handles wide.

Different strokes.”

Frankie Baby on May 3, 2014 at 13:53:03

“Different strokes indeed! I like to see a woman with curvy hips. The size of her rack doesn't matter to me. Generally, a woman with curvy hips (as opposed to fat hips) usually has attractive curves on the rest of her body. Not always, but usually. On the other hand, I've always considered myself open minded about women's issues, but realize, after responding to several of these comments, that I'm somewhat sexist after all. I'm a little disappointed in myself for that, but on the positive side, there are a lot of curvy women to enjoy looking at out there.”

“An adjusted gross income of $481,098.00, eh? I don't know, but I think conservatives might dispatch some tax sleuths to investigate this mildly lean income declared by a guy who still has a book or two on the market.

Fact it, the birther movement fell flat on its face, but perhaps a 'worther' movement can gather steam. Better hurry, though.

Chant: "Worther, worther, worther!" Lead the way.”

“I'm thinking that neither of Obama's are selling at anywhere near the rate they were when he first ran for office and now years later much less so.
