“The study does not show this. This study is bogus. There's no before and after, there are far too participants. I'm against marijuana smoking as something you should do every day but this is not a real study that should be even mentioned.”

“Being that the brain was not scanned BEFORE the start of smoking, this this test might conclude that people with certain types of brains are more likely to be drawn towards smoking. I'm on neither side of the fence. I am just stating that this test is in no way conclusive of anything. It proves nothing and is useless. Completely speculative.”

“Agreed. And I still can't get past the 20 subjects per group. Really? A decent sample size for any data analysis and/or survey/research should consist of at least 1,000 people.”

“She's fine. If you're doing what with your body what you did before you're pregnant, you're not stressing it out at all. Best to keep to your routines and not deviate unless something changes. I was a tennis pro, teaching for hours every day, hitting hard with men twice my size. I kept it up until I felt I couldn't. The worst thing I did during my pregnancy was eat ice cream every night, something I never would have done if I were not. We have a 'fat if best' mentality in this country and we are really killing ourselves, not helping. Be in shape... it's really good for you!”

“I agree about keeping in shape, and I must say tennis is a safer choice--after all, if you dropped your implement during an overhead, it would bounce off your head without leaving a mark, if she drops that barbell, she has 125 lbs. to get out of the way of in a hurry.”
“That's pretty drastic to think they need to remove that tweet due to terrible news in Washington. Not a thing they said could be offensive in this regard. Seems as if we're looking for reasons to hate each other. Just stop.”
“Because someone is poor and trying to get on their feet, we should then tell them they don't deserve a treat and that we the people should get to tell them what they can and cannot eat by our standards.... oh, and no organic? Do you understand that this just breeds an attitude of oppression and will never help anyone. We pay the government workers also... can I tell them what to eat? Do you know that the people on food stamps do NOT get those delivered to their door? They have to work hard to prove they are looking for work and go into the office every week to show where they have applied and document every move they make. They work extremely hard to get that $400 a MONTH to eat and you are going to act like you get to then tell them what they can spend it on? How dare you.”
“I do agree with your comment on it being dangerous and not healthy to breed these dogs for our amusement. Initially it looked is if you had accused this woman of doing so. Not the case, and I was merely pointing that out.”
“"What people need is wider width,"
I disagree. What people need is to eat less. If I pay X amount for my seat and have to share part of it with a large person. I end up leaning to one side the whole flight, being uncomfortable, and that person gets extra real estate at my expense. If part of someone is going to take up part of my seat, they should pay part of MY ticket.
Take better care of yourself America.”

“I will point out politely that your comment sounds sanctimonious. I understand, because I am small, and have had larger people overflow into my seat, and it is not fun. I do not find their size to be a moral failing, though. I had a boyfriend who was 6 foot 4--he had a horrible time on flights and his legs bumped everyone the whole time and he had to sit folded up like a praying mantis. He didn't need to eat less or take better care of himself--he was a fitness freak. Think for a second who should be addressing this problem? That's right: the airlines. Maybe you should write them a letter?”

“Good advice. But you don't get to tell ME to eat less. I'm not overweight.
I disagree with you when you say we don't need wider seats. I still feel cramped in those wretched, horribly inadequate 17" seats. Mostly in America by the way. Asian and European airlines tend to have a few inches more all around, and it's amazing what a huge difference that little bit makes.
So having been in comparative circumstances, I can say you're wrong. These seats are TOO NARROW.
That is as much of a problem as obesity, in this context. I mean, what do you say to the 6' 3" 190lb athletically built guy who "overflows" his seat? He has to pay extra? Eat healthy?
“Where was her mother? She shoukd have been at the drop off spot when the bus arrived to ibsure that her chikd GOT OFF the bus. The kid is 4. There is no way she should have known when to get off. Bus driver is at fault and shoukd never have dropped a chikd without somone there to receive her, but motherbis equally liable andsshandsshoukd be questioned as well.”

“The article stated that the mother was at the bus stop `early (20 minutes I think.).”

“When I was 4 I knew when and where to get off, and how to walk home. You seem to think 4 year olds are idiots.”

“Did you read the article? It states that "She [the mother] tells the station that she called a district office inquiring her daughter's whereabouts when the girl didn't return as scheduled." Also, she did not allow them to put the 4 year old by herself in a taxi to send her home. Sounds to me that the mother did everything she was supposed to do including sending her child to an early education program.”

“Nothing in the article indicated to me that the mother wasn't there to pick her up. Where did you read that? Or did you just assume the mother was negligent, and why would you think that? Let me help clear up your judgmental little brain. From KARE11:
She was supposed to be dropped off here at the corner at 2:44 p.m. so I went out there at 2:28, just in case the bus was running early," Myers explained.
By 3 p.m. Myers was worried and called the District's transportation hotline.
"I called and asked them, 'Where's my daughter?' They couldn't tell me where my daughter was at, so they put me on hold!"”
