“I am simply shocked that a scandal would emerge immediately after the announcement of the new pope. Simply shocked. The media deserves a salute for bringing this to the attention of the uneducated masses. Over 30 years ago even. How can this man have escaped notice until tonight?”

“The gravity of the pulsar is so intense, that all of the matter it contains(more than the sun) has been squeezed into a super-dense state of matter that is so dense a thimble-full weighs several tons. In a nutshell.”

“Personally, I'm offended by the use of the term "karma". Are we supposed to be hindu now? Either the press wants us to be atheist or not! Make up my mind for me!”

guitargamerdude on Nov 18, 2012 at 23:11:47

“I knew someone once who is atheist and believed in karma. I'm also atheist as well. Shows you anyone can believe in something without religion. Karma, love, compassion and understanding of humanity and nature is all you need.”

“Oh, shove it. I spend eight weeks out of the year listening to songs about your baby Jesus on the radio. I'm pagan and you guys stole my holiday centuries ago (it's really called Yule and it's celebrated between Dec. 21 and 23, justsoyaknow).

Take your offendedness somewhere that it actually counts, instead of where you're top dog of the pile.”

“Get over it ! I'm sure if it had been a "Christian term" you would have been fine with it.NOT EVERYONE is the same which is a GOOD thing.It's 2012 not 1812”

“Really? You are offended???

Surely that one little word will not sway you that much?

Take the heartwarming story for what it is. No need to get all bunched up about it. Keep calm and carry on.”

fields4ever on Nov 17, 2012 at 18:58:46

“I cannot fathom why you would be offended by the term 'karma' unless you were Hindu and insulted by the uneducated usage of it by non-Hindus, which has gone on for decades, at least since the Beatles visited India in the 1960s.

And what does the press have to do with it? This story is about an email exchange which happened to include that word, used by someone whose car was damaged.”

rnsncwmn55 on Nov 17, 2012 at 12:42:46

“So many of the current terms used by the general public have their roots in other languages, cultures, religions, etc. Karma is a good thing. Just go with it.”

“I don't think "the press" cares one way or the other. No matter what faith you are or aren't, perhaps a bit of deep breathing would do you a bit of good.”

AaHarper on Nov 16, 2012 at 20:26:39

“Karma is a nice concept. Do good things and good things will happen to you. Just because it has roots in Hinduism doesn't mean you can't appreciate it. Karma, or more correctly the concept of it, has secular meaning in mainstream American culture. I doubt many Americans that know of karma could tell you the first thing about Hinduism.”

“"AND.....if YOU don't want to have someone reply/comment/judge

"public forum"........" So if I want to reply/comment/judge your "posts" I guess I have a right to. As far as attacking someone, most grown men don't appreciate being referred to as "little boy" so if you want to play "who started it", it was you. I still don't understand what your point is. Are you trying to argue that everyone is honest? Or what? Seriously, are you saying that the world is really all unicorns and rainbows and the things you see on the news everyday are make believe? $8,000 is a little different than $100. Finding $8,000 would make anyone nervous. You go plant a $100 bill somewhere and see who picks it up and keeps walking. Not in a bank, and not where anyone can see them. Would you really have me believe that people in this world are so honest? You are seriously deluded.”

“RE: your statement:
" Then let me ask you this :What......is the "deal"......with all of the......"

LOL !!.....What a convoluted response to information
on articles about "honesty".........

Is that the BEST retort that you could come up with ??

I guess if that's your "best".....then that's your 'best'....
to attack someone's "writing style" INSTEAD of replying with an intelligent counter-argument............oh well......
those who DON'T have an intelligent counter-argument
USUALLY come up with something asinine such as
your attack.............

RE: your statement:
" And anyway, still too small of a test group."

While you are entitled to your opinion.....apparently
based on the comments posted here......MOST do
not agree with you..........

RE: your statement:
" One good Samaritan?.........................................."

I gather "reading for accuracy" is NOT your strong
suit either........oh well..........

Thanks for the laughs this evening.......”

“You're awfully quick to judge aren't you? It must have gotten lonely on top of that pedestal for you to come down and attack me. A....."concept"......that seems......to have escaped......you.....is the whole point of my post. Is that had it been something more desirable that was......lost.....perhaps the results.......of the....."experiment"....may have been different.....The test group....is simply.....too...."small" to draw any kind of conclusion......Must be a slow day, go find someone else to pass judgement on. Why don't you go tell a Christian how stupid they are or find a conservative to bash, that sounds right up your alley. Ummm..........”

LOL!!....NO quicker than you were to "judge" this experiment little
boy........

I perfectly UNDERSTOOD "your" concept.....however....you obviously
did not comprehend MINE........

AND.....if YOU don't want to have someone reply/comment/judge
your "posts"......it might be best NOT to post......as THIS is a
"public forum"........

The fact IS.....that someone on a "fixed income" might have very
well lost those glasses.....and be unable to "afford" to replace them.....
BUT.....because someone kindly "turned them in".......they NOW
don't have to "do without".......(the "other" concept" that escaped
you)............

Can you comprehend THAT "concept" ??”

“Bah, it's a pair of glasses. Might be different if it was an expensive watch or a wallet maybe.”

“Ummm....honesty is honesty....whether it be a pair of sunglasses....lost keys OR
something expensive........a "concept" you indicate that you do NOT understand.......AND.....

This was ALSO an "exercise"......showing that one human was "thinking" of
the "needs" of their fellow human.......you know......"Gee....someone lost their
sunglasses.....let me turn them in to lost/found.....they really might NEED
them"........ Another "concept" that seems to have escaped you......”

“Justin? Any answer for gallup?”

Pax333 on Mar 16, 2012 at 02:39:28

“"One-fourth of American respondents are either "very" or "somewhat" satisfied with "the availability of affordable healthcare in the nation," (6% very satisfied and 19% somewhat satisfied). This level of satisfaction is significantly lower than in Canada, where 57% are satisfied with the availability of affordable healthcare, including 16% who are very satisfied. Roughly 4 in 10 Britons are satisfied (43%), but only 7% say they are very satisfied (similar to the percentage very satisfied in the United States).

Looking at the other side of the coin, 44% of Americans are very dissatisfied with the availability of affordable healthcare, and nearly three-fourths (72%) are either somewhat or very dissatisfied. The 44% in the United States who are very dissatisfied with healthcare availability is significantly higher than corresponding figures in either Canada (17%) or Great Britain (25%)."
