“I miss Sunshine, the hamster my daughter brought home one day. He had a real personality and loved to stuff baby carrots into his cheeks. He had a duplex condo and a hamster ball but I felt bad his feet never actually touched the ground. One night I adjusted the tubing to come out of his house and the first time he climbed out he looked at me like, "are you sure about this"? He ran off and I found him back in his condo, snug in his bed the next morning. This became his nightly routine. They are smart, clean animals.”

“Actually they are very clean.
Watching a Hamster create their living space ( food in this corner, bathroom in that corner etc ) is actually pretty cool. Their hands are pretty incredible too.”
“I have been with HuffPost since the beginning and it's a shame to see it turn into a scandal sheet more concerned with expansion and making money than journalism and real reporting. The "reporters" are mostly interns who cut and paste. It is hard to take it seriously when there are so many mistakes.”
“Another sloppy reporting and poor editing job by HuffPo. Bernie Sanders is an Independent. HuffPo is nothing more than a rag with a handful of real journalists. Arianna sold out for the big bucks. What a shame.”

“Bernie Sanders is an IINO (independent in name only), he is de facto a leftist democrat.”

“Why not contain your remarks to a page that fits them.”
“And why is slurring the Irish and people of Irish descent OK? I could imagine the outrage if another ethnic group were the butt of tired, stupid and insulting stereotyping.”

“As an American of Irish descent, I, too, am sick of these Irish stereotypes. As soon as I finish my pint, I'm gonna punch someone.”

“Hey I am half Irish with an Irish name and have no problem people poking fun at the Irish. They are a lovable people and flawed like everyone else even the Germans although they will never admit it.”

“there was a good article about this the other day (not on HP, Glittersnipe maybe?).
It's because the Irish have a good sense of humor, are capable of laughing at themselves and understand the fun of a few drinks and some good stories. Life isn't about harping on the negative constantly, it's about finding and embracing the positive. It's been a while since being called a Mick was common or since "no Irish need apply" or even since "No Blacks-No Irish-No dogs allowed" and the overwhelming majority of Irish have moved on to more interesting things.”

“I complain about the lame slide shows every chance I get but HuffPo couldn't care less and there is no suggestions forum. On the iPad they either don't load or freeze and crash, especially the ones featuring the Progressive ads with Flo. The new comments format also either don't load or crash. The app suks so I deleted it.”
sgstarling on Mar 9, 2013 at 08:21:41
“Oh yeah, the new comments format just doesn't work. More than 1/2 the fun if Huffpo is reading and posting comments, and when a story has this new format, all I can do is skip it. Ugggg!
I'm getting more of my news from Google News, but its not as much fun...”
“This is so cool and beautiful! I had C sections 25 and almost 24 years go. I wanted to watch the whole procedure on the overhead mirror but my OBGYN wouldn't let me. My ex watched both times and took a few pictures after the baby was out, but he wasn't allowed to take pictures during the operation. And forget about videos in the OR, especially with a big old fashioned camera!
Congratulations to the proud and lucky parents, and what a progressive medical team.”

“I also had two c-sections (twins in 2009 and a singleton in 2010) and because of moving, I went with a different OB/hospital for my second delivery. With my twins, my OBs encouraged me to view the birth of my daughters; they lowered the veil and had a nurse anesthesiologist hold up a mirror so I could view their entry into the world. When I'd asked my new OB about this in regards to my second c-section, she thought I was absolutely insane and told me that no one had ever asked that before. She was actually really uncomfortable with it (about the sterility aspect of lowering the veil - puhleaze!) and didn't like the idea of having someone hold a mirror so I had my husband record it. He also had to wait to videotape until after they had removed my daughter, for liability reasons (boy, that was fun to hear while I was cut hip to hip in the OR!).
Just goes to show, even 25 years after you had your first child, some medical professionals still seem to be living in the dark ages! Regardless of the presumed intentions of the hospital by doing this promotion, it's nice to see OBs trying to take some of the clinical detachment out of c-sections.”
“Lindsay may have issues that are troubling (and I hope she gets help before it's too late) but the author of this so-called newsworthy article is pathetic. The entire HP Style section is sad nd misguided.”

“Yes, Rebecca Adams strikes again. She is usually pretty bad.”

“She's 26 years old and has had problems for years. You don't think that not being able to help herself is a big part of the picture?
I hope your sister or daughter never has the experience and always has real friends and caring family. Not everyone is as strong as you self righteously think they should be.”

“Uh....you do know that at 26 years old she's long past girlhood, don'chya?
That's called a woman. She may be in a state of arrested development, and there's no doubt of that. But part of the problem are enablers like you, in Hollywood and in the courts who keep treating he like a little girl and let her get away with the childish, selfish behavior she gets away with.
